SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- City council members approved a measure on Monday night to let Springfieldians raise chicken.  People will have to decide, however, whether it's worth it. All natural is all the rage but buying a chicken isn't without cost.  It's one that farmer Curtis Millsap says could be worth it. "In exchange for food, water, and housing, you get eggs, which is a pretty good deal," said Millsap. He warns, just like any pet, chickens require care that costs.

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.-- The bed bug epidemic that began in 2010 isn't over.  If anything, it's picking up speed.  But local exterminators say their methods of getting rid of the bugs are now tried and true.   Hotels, dorms and hospitals are among places constantly working to keep the bugs out.  But they're even showing up in places like semi tractors and travel trailers. "We're doing several jobs a week lately.  So it's started increasing rapidly, and in the past year or so, it's continued to increase rapidly," says Ivan Eftink, Bug Zero owner.  Eftink says his company did four bed bug jobs this week and has at least that many scheduled for next week.
