YourTurn - 8/27/10

Watch for YourTurn normally scheduled to air at the end of Heartland News at Noon on Mondays and Fridays, at the end of Heartland News at 10:00 on Saturday nights, and following The Breakfast Show on Sunday mornings.

Bill Crowe from Advance, Missouri:
"A law should be passed that when a person is pulled over for any traffic violation they should show a birth certificate or passport along with their driver license and vehicle registration. This would make a police officer's job so much easier."
Bob Newberry from Union County, Illinois:
"While watching the KFVS12 news segment concerning notifying parents for substance (abuse) problems while in college it was apparent the ‘adult' college students interviewed missed an important fact of life…while gaining independence is an important part of maturing…if your parents are financially supporting you in any way, they have the right and deserve to know what you are up to. If you are fully supporting yourself, then it should be your choice."

Pam Coffman from Centerville, Missouri:
"Reading a story on-line, a young man was arrested because his child was outside naked without supervision… what makes the story of the father sound bad was that he was playing video games. All of us have done something at one time or another and our kids have gotten away from us. If someone tells you that it has never happened to them, they are liars."
