WAYNESVILLE, Mo. -- For the past few years, farmer David Hartley noticed a section of his pasture was starting to depress.  In August, about 20 inches of rain fell in one week in Pulaski County.  Usually the water pooled on the land during heavy rain, but not this time. "It was like a bathtub.  It was the last little bit that just happened to be draining out and that's how I found the hole," said Hartley. Had Hartley not been paying close attention to his land, he likely wouldn't have noticed two sinkholes about 30 feet apart.
