GREENE COUNTY, Mo. - All across the Ozarks tree owners are noticing what's often called an icky invasion. The presence of eastern tent caterpillars is also a sign of spring.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- If you're under the age of 21 and you live in Missouri, you can legally drink.  The idea behind this caveat -- and Missouri is certainly not alone in it -- is to give parents some control over their childrens' alcohol consumption by ensuring they're present when it happens.   Kyle Pierson just turned 21, and he enjoys a beer every once in a while.  But that's not much different from when he was 18, 19, and 20. "My first drink was probably around high school," he said.

Quickly confusing a cashier into giving a thief too much cash is called quick changing and it's happening again in the Ozarks. It's an old trick that causes a worker to give someone more change than they deserve. Gas station clerk Lashara Luttrull says she's not naïve -- but she still got conned. She says a scammer fooled her once now she wants to warn others about quick change confusion. "For the life of me I can't think of when I handed him the other $50," Luttrull said, recalling the day she was tricked.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Electronic ankle bracelets have been used to track what offenders do and where they go. For decades, police agencies across the country and the Ozarks have touted the successes of the devices. From fighting crime to easing jail overcrowding, the bracelets send alerts to keep law enforcement aware of offenders whereabouts. Typically, a variety of offenders are monitored with the bracelets. Sex offenders and other high-risk offenders are tracked as well as those low-risk offenders such as those with multiple DWI convictions.

Springfield, Mo. - The Greene County Collector's office has announced that personal property and real estate tax receipts can now be printed by taxpayers online. The Collector's office mailed 2011 tax bills to county property owners on Wednesday, November 9th. These bills must be paid by Dec. 31 to avoid penalties. If you don't receive your bill, you can easily print one online at www.countycollector.com . This year, for the first time, taxpayers can help save tax dollars by electing to print their own receipts online rather than have the county pay for the postage to mail it. The taxpayer can do this by checking a box on the return portion of their statements.

Probation is no longer an option for a former teacher who had sex with the same student in three counties. Judge Calvin Holden revoked Alison Peck's probation Friday and sentenced her to five years in prison. Peck was originally sentenced to five years supervised probation, required to register as a sex offender and ordered to complete sex offender treatment. “She is used to living in ‘pretend normal’ everything has to look perfect and pristine on the outside but on the inside that is not who Alison is,” Peck’s sex offender treatment provider Kris Hamilton said.

The United States Supreme Court ruled Monday that sex offenders convicted before 2006 may not have to register if they move across state lines. In the 7-2 ruling, Justices said rules requiring sex offenders to update their registration when crossing state lines don't automatically apply to those who committed their crimes before the law was passed. The law, the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act, also known as the Adam Walsh act, created a national sex offender registry.

Table Rock Lake is full of people but not water.  The Army Corps of Engineers says it's dealing with "extremely unusual" conditions due to the widespread drought.     The lake is at just under 910 feet when it should be at 917, and the corps is predicting another 3.5 foot drop in August just due to evaporation and hydro power demands.  That's got boaters on high alert-- or at least it should.   Rock Lane Marina's general store is home to a graveyard of sorts.   "Where's Danny White's?"
