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.

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.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- A new Missouri law designed to be a solution could cause more problems.  The law took effect last August and allows scrap yards to dispose of vehicles ten years old or older without a title.  The idea behind the law is to make it easier to scrap an old, inoperable vehicle -- kind of like the Cash for Clunkers deal a few years ago.   Cody Blood is the proud owner of a compact, hatchback, rust-brown 1980 Toyota Corolla....

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.

(Branson, MO - Updated 10:15 PM) “With his passing, we've lost an icon,” said Gary Ellison. At 71 years old Branson's first entertainer, Lyle Mabe, passed away Saturday, leaving a legacy behind. “Lyle was one of the funniest people you could ever be around. He was perhaps the best hillbilly story teller I've ever heard,” said Ellison. Mabe and his brothers started the Baldknobbers show in 1959, bringing hillbilly humor mainstream. “The city slicker might try to come to town to take advantage of these ignorant hillbillies, but the hillbillies always got the last laugh.

You may not see them but Branson has them, and many people in the community say there just aren't enough services for the homeless population.   This sort of came to light last week after a homeless man was arrested.  There was a public outcry that Branson police brutalized him, that he has mental health issues, and needs help but can't get it.  We went to Branson to find out if there's truth behind that claim.     The shelves are fully stocked and being stocked still where Frank can squeeze another can or two, but we just came at the right time.  Three days from now, even a few hours from now, much of the food at Christian Action Ministries will be gone.
