Happy Father's Day! Here is some of the stories we are working on for Heartland News and

Weekend storms have caused some damage in Missouri and Illinois. It looks like Du Quoin was hit pretty hard as Arnold Wyrick reports that overnight storms flipped campers at Du Quoin State Fairgrounds. Arnold talked to those people staying in the campers who rode out the rough storms as well as those who suffered home and car damage.

Have recent storms and flooding left you without a job? We first told you last week about a program through the workforce investment board that will hire unemployed workers to clean up damage from the flooding. But do you know how to apply? Christy Millweard has the story.

A sad story out of Kentucky this morning where a 75-year-old South Fulton, Ky. woman killed in one-car-crash Sunday--on her birthday.

Police are investigating an alleged assault of a one-month-old baby boy that happened on Saturday at a home in New Madrid County. The father is in police custody awaiting charges.

Both lanes of I-55 are back open in Scott County where MoDOT was demolishing a bridge overnight.

Remember to do something nice for dad today!
