A new study has ranked the top ten depressing states in which to live here in America -- and two states that the Ozarks are home to have made the list. Health.com released its rankings on its website, and several Midwest and southern states make that list. The site says it used data from several federal health agencies to compile the list. Health.com cited Arkansas' low rankings in mental health and Missouri's 13 percent rate of serious psychological distress. The other states on the list are Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Mississippi, Nevada, Oklahoma, Tennessee and West Virginia.

HARRISON, Ark. -- Arkansas is one step closer to letting people be armed in church.  The state Senate overwhelmingly voted Monday to allow guns in churches with permission from church leadership. Arkansas is one of ten states that prohibits firearms inside a church at any time for any reason. "It's a little naive to think that any place is safe anymore. " Unfortunately Pastor Bob Johnson never really did.  As a kid, a lady threatened another pastor with a gun at his church in Memphis.  In the '90s, a gunman killed half a dozen people at his parents' church in Fort Worth, Texas.
