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.

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.

Months later, disputes surrounding the concert could again wind up in court. “We pulled it off,” Dunn 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. - The Higher Learning Commission of the Assemblies of God will decide, perhaps within a month, whether to merge Central Bible College with Evangel University. If approved, the consolidation would happen in August. When Eli Villa graduates this spring, his college may not be here in the fall. "It is kinda weird to think....oh, there may not be a campus for us to go back to, at least the way we remember it," he says. Central Bible College offers undergraduate programs with a focus on training ministers and missionaries.
