KIMBERLING CITY, Mo. - You have a chance to lace up your running shoes and help a local woman battling cancer. Robyn Ayers was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer last year at age 31. She's since had chemotherapy, and doctors say she can't be around people or enjoy her favorite hobby: running. Since she can't be around people she's put her job as a teacher at Blue Eye on hold as well as her job at Southwest Fitness. In the meantime, her friends are holding a 5K fundraiser to help Robyn with medical expenses.

They've stood at the north end of the Kimberling City bridge, welcoming folks to town for nearly 25 years.  Now heavy equipment is finishing what the tornado started.  "It's too bad.  Changes things," said Kimberling City resident Ralph Swanson.

STONE COUNTY -- Stone County Emergency Services will continue to activate its storm siren system-- at least for the next six months. By a 3-to-2 vote, the board tabled the issue and will revisit it in six months. The agency wants to relinquish its role and let cities within the county handle their own warning system. "It's an outdated system. The National Weather Service says outdoor warnings is a secondary system," said Bob Andrews, Ex. Dir., Stone County 911. The executive director said not only is it an archaic method, but he added that most of the municipalities have their own system and trying to coordinate all of them under the single 911 center isn't efficient.
