Good evening everyone,

It's the weekend to "spring ahead" for daylight savings time. Officially the change starts Sunday at 2 a.m., those most people are likely to reset their clocks before going to bed Saturday night.

Workforce officials confirm that more than 50 people are being laid off from Sabreliner Corporation in Perryville, Mo. The company blames defense cuts as part of the sequester for the job losses. In case you missed it earlier, Tyler Profilet will have more on this story tonight at 9 and 10.

The FBI is investigating an incident involving two Marion police officers in connection to the way they treated someone being arrested. You can click here for more on the story.

The Kennett City Council approved a ballot measure that would ban smoking in businesses. Residents still have to vote on the issue.

There are lots of myths floating around about exercising during pregnancy. So is it safe for a mom-to-be to run, walk, swim and bike? Christy Millweard brings us the story tonight at 10.

A Kansas City, Mo. woman died Wednesday after apparently asphyxiating sewer gases which came from a sink that had been disassembled, authorities said today.

Although Mississippi state law requires sex offenders to register every 90 days, not all of them do so. That problem is now the target of a piece of legislation sailing through the capitol. The bill would require GPS tracking of sex offenders.

In odd news today, the Oregon City Police Department helped make sure a beaver returned to its home after they received a call saying the animal was wandering through traffic on a busy road.

That's all for tonight, tune it to watch us at 9 and 10 online or on-air! Have a great weekend!
