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.

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.

CLAYTON, Mo. -- Gerald Carnahan, the principal suspect from the get-go for the rape and murder of a 20-year-old woman in Springfield in 1985, received two consecutive life prison sentences with no chance of parole or probation on Monday.  A St. Louis County jury convicted Carnahan, 52, last month for the death of Jackie Johns of Nixa.

The federal government is now watching the clock more closely, trying to make sure truck drivers get enough shut-eye.  “The longer you're on the road, the greater chance that you're going to become fatigued,” said Jonathan Davis, an attorney at Ramsdell Law Firm.

edited news release from Greene County prosecuting attorney's office | August 9, 2013
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...
