A shocking story out of Shelby, NC has a lot of our viewers on Facebook talking today. A woman there is accused of castrating a man with her bare hands.

We had crews posted throughout the Heartland today for our Stuff a Truck event. With the summer months upon us, many area families don't have the help of a school lunch program and this increases the demand at food banks and pantries. You can help us "Stuff a Truck" until 6:30 p.m. at locations in Missouri and Illinois.
