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.

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.

A wife is charged with prostitution in Greene County, 10 months after police say they caught her husband selling her for sex. Monday, prosecutors charged 44-year-old Kimberly Hamilton with prostitution. Her husband, 47-year-old Vincent Hamilton, pleaded guilty to promoting prostitution earlier this month. KSPR dug through five years of Greene County court records to see just how many women and men have been charged with prostitution.

Thomas Edison would be so proud. So would Clark Griswold. There's really no way to describe it, except to see it. "This is awesome," says Victoria Fair, who was visiting Wednesday night with her daughter Miranda. Mike Bagwell's Christmas display, at 2008 East Cambridge St, includes 100,000 lights across five yards, and 1,000 ways to control them. "That's 1,000 different things we can turn on and off, which gives us the really cool animation that you see," says Bagwell.

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.

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.
