Tonight on Heartland News!

Here are some of the stories we're working on for Heartland News tonight

It's Madness!!
March Madness has begun and only Heartland News has EVERY college team from our region covered. Todd Richard's on his home turf in Auburn Hills, Michigan with my home team, the SIU Salukis. Chad Fryman's also back home in Dayton, Ohio following the Murray State Racers in their clash against Poplar Bluff native Tyler Hansbrough and the University of North Carolina. And Ryan Tate climbed a Mile High to chase the SEMO women's team into the tourney at Denver. Grab your brackets and enjoy!

HS Hoops
We couldn't do March justice without following our local high school teams into their state tournaments. Watch for a complete report at five from Columbia, where the Advance boys took on Marionville in the Class 2 semifinal. Delta girls and Bell City boys hit the hardwood tonight. Watch for those highlights after tonight's NCAA lineup on CBS.

Who's flooding my town?
A change in the drainage of an old mine pond is flooding out the northeast part of Royalton. One resident awoke to three inches of water and raw sewage in her home!! The mayor blames the Illinois Department of Natural Resources. We'll find out what the agency has to say at 5.

Shock and Awe, Take Two
The U.S. military unleashes its biggest air assault since the Iraq invasion three years ago. We'll bring you the latest on the attack involving 1,500 Iraqi and coalition troops.

These stories - plus a Heartland ghost town (we know where everyone went!), fair warning about grabbing a coat or sweater before shouting "TGIF", and a good reason why three to five year olds should never wear white!

Mike Shain joins me at the anchor desk at 5. I hope you'll join us too!

    Federal judges have ordered the EPA to ban a dangerous, popular insecticide, but farmers in Southeast Missouri who use the chemical are coming to its defense.
