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.

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.

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.

Air conditioners are hot targets for thieves in Springfield but not only for the reason you may think.  They've been making big bucks off the copper wiring for years-- now they're going for the whole unit, possibly in search of a deadly high.   It's the cruelest of ironies; air conditioner thieves have now twice hit a building owned by an insurance agent and home to an air conditioner installation and repair company.   "It's overhead, just more overhead and you think you've done something to prevent it and they outsmart you," explains Chuck Chalender.  The insurance agent is talking aboutlocked cages he had installed over two brand new units after the old ones were stolen a year and a half ago.     They worked to save the units but the units didn't work.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Owning a monkey in Missouri requires as much paperwork as owning a dog or cat: none.  State lawmakers are looking at changing that.  There's a bill in the House that would tighten restrictions on keeping a primate as pet. Half of all privately owned primates in the nation live in Missouri, and the facility housing Travis, the chimpanzee who became infamous by mauling a woman in Connecticut, is south of St. Louis.  All it...

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. -- Several Shoney's restaurants in the Ozarks shut down suddenly.  Now employees want answers and the main question they're asking is "Where's my paycheck?"

A guy named Brent Cotter owned eight Shoney's restaurants in the Ozarks, including two in Springfield and one in Arkansas.  They are all closed.  About 20 employees at each location are now confused and upset after finding their place of employment suddenly closed.

Hammons' rags to riches story is well known to folks familiar with the key figures in Springfield's growth in the last 50 years.  Hammons' name is everywhere and his legacy will be part of Springfield forever.
