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.

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. "That eroded enamel then is more susceptible to decay and sensitivity," said Springfield dentist Dr. Michael Beasley.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- A number of house fires in the area in the last several weeks were likely caused by space heaters.  That includes one in December on West Division Street.  Firefighters said the space heater was plugged into an overloaded outlet. That fire didn't harm anyone.  Springfield firefighters worry that others might not be so fortunate.  That's why they want people to know that space heaters should be used with extreme caution. If Cindi Mudd wants water in the winter, she needs to keep the shed with her water pipes warm.  She survived when a space heater nearly melted down her place.

Today's science question: What is in a Cheeto that allows it to burn? There is energy in everything.  One way to measure that is with the unit of calories.  (A calorie is the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of one gram of water 1 o C). And don't confuse it with the kind of calorie you try to keep from reaching your waistline.  A more common measure of energy is the Joule, which we use to measure instability in the StormTeam weather center.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- A customer wants to know why some local businesses scan your driver's license when you go to buy beer or wine.  He wanted to know what information the little strip on the back of your license contains, and why some stores scan it into their computer systems. It happened to Mark West of Springfield at a local Walgreens store, and we found several other businesses do the same thing. "It was bothersome," said West. West says his quick trip to a Walgreens recently left him empty handed.

MELVA, Mo. -- Hidden away in the foothills of Taney County are ruins of a town that few Ozarkians remember.   Don Rittenhouse, a Hollister resident, had ancestors who lived in Melva.  “The old town site, the old hotel or boarding house, whatever they call it, by the railroad and then I saw where they had built houses up there on the lots.   The best I remember, they didn't have foundations; a lot of them just had rocks," said Rittenhouse. There isn't much left of Melva today.  If you hike to see the ruins, you'll see several old foundations and a tall chimey that still stands amongst the trees.
