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.

STOCKTON, Mo. -- Black walnut harvesters brace for a difficult season.  After last year's stellar crop, producers now expect lower than usual numbers.  Many growers blame the drought. "There is going to be somewhat of an impact.  It's probably going to be a slightly more down crop than it would be typically.  But the full impact isn't going to be known until we start cracking these nuts and see what kind of yield we are getting out of them," said David Hammons, vice president of marketing for Hammons Products Company . Typically, Hammons Products Company needs 20 million pounds of black walnuts a year.

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.
