Tonight on Heartland News

Happy Hump Day!

Grab your shades and your shorts and enjoy the warmth of a good news story. Here's what we've got to heat up your interest tonight at 5 and 6:

Park This!
Police on one Heartland campus are cracking down on able-bodied drivers taking advantage of handicapped parking spots. And they're hoping that threats of fines between $500-10,000.00 will help them get the message across! How is that possible? Find out tonight.

Take Me Out to the Beer…. uh, Ball Game
It's easily the biggest game of the young season for the baseball Redhawks. They're taking on Mizzou in an evening game expected to draw thousands to Cape's Capaha Park. But, it may not just be the action on the diamond attracting those numbers. Ryan Tate's on deck at 5 and 6 to take a swing at this story.

Knock, Knock
You won't believe the latest scam CJ Cassidy uncovered. Try a guy going door-to-door, claiming he owes someone money. He then manages to make off with someone else's green. Confused? You won't be after you see her story. And you won't be surprised that this scammer got caught, once you see his mug shot!

Wet and Wild
No, I'm not talking about Spring Break, but I am talking Mike Shain, which is pretty hot-speedo or no speedo. Mike's getting a tall cool drink of Missouri's best tasting drinking water. Which town can make this claim? Who decides if drinking water tastes good? Who still drinks tap water? Mike answers these and other looming questions tonight.

And if that's not enough excitement for you, one Heartland state wants new rules when it comes to buckling up your kids, and another state wants you to know how to avoid wrecks with the big rig driving next to you.

We hope you'll join us for all the day's news, weather, and sports!
