Tonight on Heartland News!

Good afternoon!

Hope you're staying warm on this chilly, dreary Tuesday. Here are some of the stories we're working on for you tonight:

eBay Arrest
A Scott County resident recently posted some items for sale on the popular web site, eBay. No big deal, right? Well, it turns out this provocative post prompted eBay to shut it down, and call the cops. Holly Brantley will tell you what happens next .. on Heartland News at 5.

The Tape Doesn't Lie
Last fall, a rowdy crowd watched Cape Central take on rival Jackson in High School football. But, someone else took a hard hit that night….a lady in the stands who claimed a Cape officer punched her in the face! She filed criminal charges, but thanks to another fan’s video camera, she’s the one in trouble with the law. Watch the tape, and CJ Cassidy's story, at 6.

Blue Sign Special
Have you ever slowed down when you approached a town, because you know it has a reputation of being a speed trap? (I can name at least two during my commute from Mayfield to Cape). In Tennessee , communities that make a pretty penny on traffic tickets will soon have to make that clear to drivers - by way of special blue speed limit signs. Erica Byfield drove slowly and carefully down to Union City to see how folks there feel about the plan.

Heart of the Matter
It’s the number one killer of women, yet most of us don't put a lot of thought into our heart health. Tonight at 5, Tiffany Sisson tells us why we all need to pay attention to the signs of heart disease, and what those signs are.

All this plus a breakdown of the big issues we'll be covering on this primary election day in Illinois, another Heartland cemetery takes a hit, and a new web site tries to shed light on the disappearance of a New Madrid County mom.

I hope you'll join us tonight!
