The Arkansas Department of Health says more bottled water may be contaminated. This follows another recall from Mountain Pure Water Company last week. Officials say the Great Value brand bottled water has a green label and has a sell by date of 10-06-11. Those affected are the 16.9 ounce size. The Health Department says you should dispose of the water or return it to the point of purchase. The department says it's unlikely a healthy person would become sick by drinking the water, but those with a weakened immune system might be at higher risk.

GREENE COUNTY, Mo. - All across the Ozarks tree owners are noticing what's often called an icky invasion. The presence of eastern tent caterpillars is also a sign of spring. Eastern tent caterpillars are creating large white nests or tents in many trees. “At least once or twice a day we are getting a call,” Missouri Department of Conservation Resource Forester Frances Main said. “They say 'there is this fuzzy worm all of my trees and they are in this bag on the trunk of the tree.

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.

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 couple is devastated after their dog died during a grooming session at a local veterinary clinic.  They call it murder. It was supposed to be just a standard grooming.  This dog had seen this groomer twice before.  Now the groomer is out of a job and the dog is dead.   At 4:30 Thursday at the Calhouns' house, it was dinner time for the early birds but nobody was hungry.  That's because of an empty place under the table.  That's where Darby used to sit. "I know she was a little dog, I know she's not a child, but to us she was a child," said Barbara Calhoun as she sat beside her husband, Bill.

Eleven years ago, 19-year-old Amanda Morton was driving on Interstate 44 near Strafford when her car was hit. The other driver, David Zink -- a convicted felon -- kidnapped Morton, raped and killed her. "She did nothing wrong. She did not deserve to die," Amanda's mother Debbie Morton said. "He killed her and threw her away like she was trash. " Zink's trial lasted 13 days and a jury found guilty. And it was done...or so they thought. Zink was sentenced to the death penalty in 2004, but today the family says they still live in a nightmare.

New research says pedophiles may be born with the urge to have sex with children, and it's already controversial.   Wednesday, in a special report, we hear from people who believe it and those who don't.   Some of this new theory about pedophilia comes from studies on convicted sex offenders.  It was done at the Criminal Center for Mental Health and Addiction in Toronto.   Here are just a few things they found: a large number of pedophiles are left-handed, at least an inch shorter than normal, about ten IQ points below average, and have less white matter in their brains.  Some scientists say those are all biological so pedophilia likely is as well.  Not everyone buys that though, even an actual sex offender.

Table Rock Lake is full of people but not water.  The Army Corps of Engineers says it's dealing with "extremely unusual" conditions due to the widespread drought.     The lake is at just under 910 feet when it should be at 917, and the corps is predicting another 3.5 foot drop in August just due to evaporation and hydro power demands.  That's got boaters on high alert-- or at least it should.   Rock Lane Marina's general store is home to a graveyard of sorts.   "Where's Danny White's?"

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.

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. In the most recent investigation from last April , six officers set up cameras inside Room 340 in the Baymont Inn Suites at 2445 N. Airport Plaza Ave. Police say they found a craigslist post for a woman named “Kara” who described herself on craigslist as a "classy independent beauty hot sexy milf.

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....

WEBSTER COUNTY, Mo. - A Missouri Amish man says he castrated himself, but deputies aren't sure why or if he's telling the truth. Deputies in Webster County found Jacob Schwartz lying in his bed and covered in blood. We want to warn you, some of the details of this story are graphic. On the morning on July 23, Deputy Adam Hughes found himself at a farmhouse in Seymour.  Nothing could have prepared him for what he saw next. "There was blood on the floor and blood on the sheets," Hughes says.
