SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Stranded while shopping -- that's what continues to happen to some customers at the James River Town Center. It went from a few isolated incidents to dozens.  According to Affordable Towing, the cases are now above the 100 mark.  Shoppers pull into the parking lot and shut off their vehicles. When they come back to them, they suddenly won't start.   Asked if he had seen anything like this situation before, Affordable Towing driver Chris Burnett just shook his head, "No. No. That's the first time I've seen that.

Storm Shelters save lives, but many people don't have them because they are simply too expensive. After witnessing the damage from the Joplin tornado, Russel Gehrke made it his mission to provide storm shelters to Joplin tornado survivors that can't afford one on their own. Gehrke said, “I noticed the playground at burger king was still standing and that was kind of like…huh.   And then I noticed another playground standing at the Catholic church. It got me thinking that the plastic used in the playgrounds that withstood the tornado, we could make a concrete form out of recycled plastics and build storm shelters that are more cost effective.” Testing storm shelters in an expensive endeavor.  The typical test costs about $3,500.  So, in order to cut down on those costs to test his new materials, Russel invented "The Shredder".  "The Shredder" is a glorified pitching machine that is powered by a motorcycle and can throw pipes and 2x4s at about 200 ft/sec.

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 Safe to Sleep program is a warm and safe place to sleep for women who would otherwise be sleeping on the streets.  When organizers got it going, and set up cots in churches like Pathways United Methodist, they thought there might be 12 or 15 homeless women who could use a place to stay at night.  They were shocked by the number of women needing to get inside out of the elements at a place where they can feel safe. The women setting up for the night at Pathways United Methodist Church on Monday are happy to be setting up inside.  "I thank God every day for this, because sleeping in a tent was just not cutting it, and it was getting cold," said Sandy Hainline.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Shoppers will be waiting up to a year, or more, before they can browse the aisles of a proposed new Hy-Vee store on the city's east side. Last fall, HyVee announced plans for a second Springfield store, to be built on East Sunshine Street near the intersection of Enterprise Avenue.  Plans called for a grocery supermarket similar to that of the company's first city site at Battlefield Road at Kansas Expressway. The announcement created a controversy, with neighboring homeowners objecting to the project.  In November, the city council approved a zoning request from Hy-Vee to change the designation of the 10-acre plot from "residential" to "general retail.

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.

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.
