SPRINGFIELD, Mo. - It looks like Missouri is keeping its crown as the king of methamphetamine.  The Missouri Highway Patrol says, of all meth lab incidents across the country through last June, one out of every five took place in the Show-Me State. There could be a bright spot, however. Unlike previous years, 2012 isn't seeing explosive explosive growth. The patrol reports most individual counties are on par to match 2011s meth lab numbers. Some, like Taney, are showing signs of slight decreases.

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.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- The Better Business Bureau of Southwest Missouri thinks a company in Springfield changed its name to try to avoid a low BBB rating.  Its investigation shows the president also plays a role in several other similar  companies, some with as many as 28 complaints.  Each time he opens a company under a  new name, the BBB rating is wiped clean, giving consumers the impression the business has a good BBB rating. MTEK is a computer/printer supplies telemarketing company that had an A+ rating with the BBB, primarily because the company received no complaints.   The BBB's investigation revealed MTEK is listed as the owner of at least two other companies, High Performance Laser Works and MicroTek Solutions, also computer/printer supplies telemarketing companies.  BBB has received 28 complaints against High Performance Laser Works in the last three years.
