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.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- One in ten people in the Ozarks suffer from depression, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  For many, treating the illness requires medication.  But now a breakthrough treatment is providing a new option. "It was one summer, the summer of '93, I just didn't want to get out of bed, do anything see anyone," said Theresa Lawson. Lawson almost never misses a Pilates class.  The exercise is one of the things that helps her cope with symptoms of depression.  But Lawson said no matter how often she hit the gym, or how many medicines she took, those feelings always seemed to return.  Things became even worse when her husband of 40 years died in 2009.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo.-- Services are set for this Saturday to mourn the loss and celebrate the lives of a father and his three children.  They were all killed in a plane crash near Willard early Saturday. Grayson, McKinley and Joshua Lambert were on board the small plane piloted by their dad, John, when it crashed.  A family friend, Robin Melton, was also killed.  The cause is still unknown, and probably won't be determined for many months. "We didn't know.  Neither one of us knew that our kids were on the plane, we didn't know," said Holly Lambert and Georgia Marshall.  Holly Lambert is still married to John Lambert, who piloted the plane.   They are in the process of getting a divorce.  Georgia Marshall is John's ex-wife.  The two had Grayson and McKinley Lambert; both were killed in the crash.  The Lambert family tells KY3 that Robin Melton, who was also on board, was a close friend of John's.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Greene County Circuit Judge Calvin Holden ordered Alison Peck to serve her five-year prison sentence for statutory rape at a hearing for probation violations on Friday afternoon.  In November 2009, the former teacher was convicted for a relationship with a 16-year-old student the previous winter and spring. It was also made public that the former Greenfield High School teacher is pregnant. Judge Holden threatened to throw Peck's attorney in jail after she began shouting in court.  In 2009, Peck received five years of probation with a suspended five-year prison sentence after she pleaded guilty to statutory rape.  The probation was at the request of the Greenfield student with whom Peck had her relationship.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Samuel Harvill, 21, of Stark City, was convicted on Friday by a Greene County judge for stalking his ex-girlfriend in violation of an order of protection.  He faces a jail or prison sentence of up to four years. The evidence at trial was the victim broke up with the defendant in early October 2012.  Despite indicating she wanted nothing more to do with Harvill, he repeatedly called and texted her.  On Oct. 20, 2012, Harvill showed up on the victim's college campus looking for her.  He was promptly removed from the campus by security, told the victim wanted no contact with him, and told not to return.  Several hours later, he was found on campus and arrested by Springfield police officers.  Prior to his first arrest, Harvill vandalized the victim's car, which included writing “I love Samuel” on her window.  He also made several phone calls to the victim from the Greene County Jail, all of which went unanswered.  After Harville was released from jail, he was spotted on campus three more times, culminating in another arrest by a Springfield police officer.  When he was arrested the final time, Harvill admitted he took a gun with him to speak to the victim.  The gun was recovered in an alley near campus by a Springfield police officer.  The judge also listened to hours of jail phone calls made by Harvill to friends and family after he was charged with aggravated stalking.  In those phone calls, Harvill continued to...
