Medical professionals call it a national epidemic: normal children who are delayed in accomplishing basic skills like holding a pencil or catching a ball.  At least one expert calls them "bucket babies. "  They're kids who spend too much time in containers like car seats and not enough time on their tummies.  It causes problems in children from infancy through adulthood. ---- SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Twenty years ago, a 5-month-old baby like Lexi Cizek would have spent almost all her time on her tummy.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- We should all be flattered.  According to multiple contentions made Monday on a cable television show, the Ozarks is about to become the center of what remains of human civilization. "Conspiracy Theory," hosted by Jesse Ventura, followed a "trail" of "evidence" to multiple locations across the Ozarks, claiming to support the notion that a powerful group is very close to bringing about the end of life as we know it; a group that will subsequently make the Ozarks its home.

WAYNESVILLE, Mo. -- Prosecutors on Wednesday dropped murder and rape charges against the stepfather of a 9-year-old girl who was killed in Barry County in November 2007.   David Spears, who was married to the mother of Rowan Ford, instead pleaded guilty for endangering the welfare of a child and hindering prosecution. Rowan disappeared from her home in Stella, south of Neosho in Newton County.  Her body was found in a cave or sinkhole in McDonald County a week later.  Spears and Chris Collings, a friend of Spears, were charged with first-degree murder and rape, and prosecutors sought a death penalty against both men. After many delays in both trials, which were moved out of Barry County to try to ensure fair outcomes, Collings was tried last March in Rolla.  A jury convicted him and recommended a death penalty, which Circuit Judge Mary Sheffield imposed in May.  Years of appeals will follow that verdict before the state is allowed to carry out that sentence.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo -- They can give you a "pick me up" or help you rehydrate after long day in the sun, but according numerous studies energy drinks and sports drinks are exposing people to possible dental issues. The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation , New York University College of Dentistry , Dimensions of Dental Hygiene , and General Dentistry all came to a similar conclusion: many popular drinks are capable of hurting your teeth by eroding your enamel.

BAXTER COUNTY, Ark.--  Arkansas authorities are about to get a new and powerful tool to crack down on underage drinking. A new law on the books takes effect at the end of July. Right now in Arkansas, a young person cannot be charged with minor in possession unless they are actually caught holding a drink in their hand, caught in the act, so to speak. But come July 27, that will change. A new law now on the books, that the Baxter County sheriff has really been pushing for, says that if a minor is caught with any alcohol in their system they can be picked up and charged with minor in possession.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Two new veterans clinics are scheduled to come to the Ozarks, with one of them only a couple months from opening its doors. Springfield veterans are accustomed to the drive to the Veterans Administration clinic in Mt. Vernon for basic health care, and the much longer drive to the VA Hospital in Fayetteville.  So news of a large clinic coming to Springfield is welcome. "We have World War II veterans here at this post who now have to drive the 2 ½ hours, sometimes inclement weather to have things done at Fayetville," said American Legion Post 639 commander Bill Roark.
