Sheri Putmann from Royalton, Illinois:
"I like KFVS12 news because of all the journalists and newscasters...I also like (Mike Smythe's) ViewPoints and the YourTurn (segments)...I just wanted to let you know what a good job is being done at KFVS12.

Roberta Johnson from Cairo, Illinois:
"Due to the high costs of utilities in our small community it is next to impossible to make it.  I own a small beauty salon and utilities run between $300 and $400 monthly.  I plan to take action but something needs to be done about the costs we pay in Cairo."

Jerry McGill from Poplar Bluff, Missouri:
"The VA hospitals in the United States are outdated and are no longer needed.  The healthcare of our veterans should be contracted out to civilian hospitals so they can get better care."

Teresa Coleman from Herrin, Illinois:
"I am an advocate for child seat safety.  Too many people do not use the correct seat for their children and many who have the (proper) car seat either don't have them installed properly or do not have the child properly restrained.  Please help get the word out."
