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.

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.

RIDGEDALE, Mo. -- It's 150 years old but it's the latest addition to a construction project south of Hollister.  It's a barn taken apart and being put back together by the Amish workers. The old barn was found by Bass Pro Shops owner Johnny Morris and his wife, Jeanie.  It comes from Latrobe, Pa., which is legendary golfer Arnold Palmer's home town, and is being called Arnie's Barn. Morris had been looking for just such a barn for the Top of the Rock Golf Course near Branson for several years.  He decided this particular barn would be perfect, and Arnold Palmer himself even got involved.

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.

BOLIVAR, Mo. -- The kid-friendly fountains are flowing, the water in the blue slide is gushing, and the pools are all filled up.  After a long wait for City of Bolivar taxpayers, the new $6 million  Bolivar Aquatic Center finally is almost complete.  The center, located at the YMCA, opens Saturday. "I understand its been something that's been a frustration for the citizens of bolivar, and I share their frustration," said Bolivar City Administrator Darin Chappell. The pool was first scheduled to be open in September 2011.  An independent engineer for the City of Bolivar said the concrete in the aquatic center was poured incorrectly, causing it to crack.  The engineer recommended a total redo of the cracked concrete for safety and durability, but the city opted to simply fill the cracks for a quicker opening date.

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.
