Today is Monday, May 10
After a very pleasant Mother's Day weekend we'll be starting the week out with some rain. This morning the radar is alive with color as a large area of rain moves across the Heartland. Brian will be keeping us updated on-air and on-line (and both) throughout the morning.
New this morning - we've learned overnight that Singer Lena Horne, who broke racial barriers as a Hollywood and Broadway star, has died. Horne was 92-years-old.
In health news this morning Jim has a story that all parents should be watching. It's about the dangers of sleeping with your baby. I got an early look at the story and was very surprised to hear how many unnecessary deaths there are each year. You can see the story around 6:15 this morning.
And this morning - another story you should watch that could pay-off - we're putting fire-proof storage to the test. See what happens when pictures and a CD are left in a file cabinet, fire-proof box and fire-proof safe inside a house fire! The results are pretty dramatic. We'll be showing you this story around 5:45 this morning.
And then around 6:45 this morning we'll introduce you to another one of the Heartland's Best Teachers from Cape Girardeau.
Thank you for choosing to start your week with Jim, Lauren and Brian. They really appreciate you taking the time to watch.
