CASSVILLE, Mo. -- A resource used by local pharmacies recently worked to perfection to take down a suspected prescription drug abuser.  Cassville police say a Ramey's pharmacy tech thought a prescription for hydrocodone was suspicious.  After the doctor listed on the prescription said it was bogus, Rameys put out a "Pharm Alert. "   Regardless of city or ownership, virtually every pharmacy in the Ozarks got a message saying to watch out for Shayne Martin.  The alert is sent first to the Medicine Shoppe on E. Division in Springfield; it's the launching point for all Pharm Alerts in our area.  From there, that pharmacy sends it along to it's list of pharmacies, then those pharmacies do the same to their list, and on down the line.  In roughly 30-minutes, virtually every pharmacy in the Ozarks knows of an alleged abuser.

OZARK, Mo. -- Making a trip to downtown Ozark? It's likely for an errand, an appointment, or both. "You've got the banks and you've got the attorneys and you've got all the blah stuff here. You've got the county courthouse and it's all business," said Donna McCallister. She works in Ozark, and her dream for the downtown is one that's more fun. While there are some restaurants and cute shops, she wants more. Something to draw in both the professional happy hour crowd and something that's fun for families.
