SPRINGFIELD, Mo.-- Springfield's Kraft plant could potentially see a $55 million expansion to upgrade existing product lines and create new ones.  It is not a done deal yet, because Springfield is competing with another community, and the expansion hinges on whether city council approves a tax incentive. They've been making products like Kraft Macaroni and Cheese and Velveeta in Springfield since 1939.  The Kraft plant's workforce of 975 isn't expected to significantly grow, but the proposed expansion is a big deal.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Nearly every parent has them and nearly every kid loves them: bath-time toys.  Rubber duckies and all sorts of floating figurines are popular among kids.  It's what's inside of those toys, however, that no parent would ever want their kid to have. From the outside, bath toys look pretty clean and harmless.  But, as soon as they fill up with water and your child squeezes it out, they can quickly become harmful, and you can then see that the cute little duckies aren't as clean as you might think.

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 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.

SPRINGIELD, Mo. --  For many years, Missouri's black bears have been elusive to biologists wanting to learn more about them. Now, thanks to data being gleaned from a research study that began in 2010, hunches are beginning to be replaced with hard facts. Information collected from live-trapping, radio collars and hair snaring is taking away much of the mystery that has surrounded black bears in Missouri.  The goal of Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) biologists is to use this information to better manage the state's largest wild mammal.

LEBANON, Mo. -- A former attorney was charged on Tuesday with four misdemeanor charges of assault and one misdemeanor charge of false impersonation.  The charges against Eric Hutson, 52, are based on something that a 19-year-old woman said happened at the law offices of Hutson and Hutson in Lebanon last October.  The Missouri Supreme Court suspended Hutson's law license for at least three years last July. Theodore Bruce, an assistant attorney general serving as a special prosecutor, filed the charges against Hutson.  The associate circuit judges of Laclede County have recused themselves from the case, so a judge from outside the county will be assigned to it.  If Hutson is convicted, he could get up to a six-month jail sentence for impersonating an attorney, and 15-day jail sentences for the third-degree assault charges.   He could also get several hundred dollars in fines.
