Tonight on Heartland News

Good afternoon. I hope you had a chance to get out and enjoy the sunshine this afternoon. It sure made it feel warmer outside. Here’s a look at the stories we're working on tonight:

Lock and Load, Ladies
Across the country, more and more women are arming themselves. Why? Find out as Tiffany Sisson talks with several ladies taking target practice at a firing range in Bollinger County.

Are You Paying Attention?
A second FDA committee is paying close attention to warnings about ADHD drugs, like Ritalin. They're holding hearings to determine if the medication, often prescribed to children, needs to carry a warning.

Every Vote Counts
A day after Illinois’ primary, Arnold Wyrick criss-crosses Southern Illinois to see the impact of your vote. From liquor sales to more officers on the street, he breaks down the wins and losses that will affect communities for years to come.

Would You Vote For This Man?
He’s ruffled more than a few feathers over the years and even landed in jail. But, the man known as Alexander County’s “street preacher” won more than his share of votes in his effort to land a seat on the County Board. Ryan Tate takes a walk with Duane Lyon in his hometown of Miller City, to find out what it takes for a person with no political experience to reach so many voters.

Redhawks Roundup
SEMO’s Redhawk women may be out of the NCAA tourney, but the team is still the focus of an NCAA investigation. Sports Director Todd Richards sits down with AD Don Kaverman to talk about that, and the school’s efforts to keep coach BJ Smith around for another season.

Watch for these stories, plus we'll introduce you to some winning Heartland kids, and find out when our much-needed warm-up is on the way. Jeff’s back after some Oklahoma R and R. I hope you'll join us at 5, and Mary-Ann and Mike at 6.

Take care,
Kathy Sweeney
