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.

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.

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 -- Missouri Governor was in town Wednesday at the South Side Senior Center to sign legislation concerning financial exploitation. The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services reports about one out of every five calls to the Elder Abuse Hotline deals with financial exploitation. It's a constant battle, and before this law prosecutors didn't have all the tools they needed to go after criminals. "It is an awful and unfortunate truth that each year thousands of older folks are the victims of financial exploitation," said Governor Nixon.

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.
