YourTurn - 5/7/07

Watch for YourTurn normally scheduled to air at the end of Heartland News at Noon on Mondays and Fridays, at the end of Heartland News at 10:00 on Saturday nights, and following The Breakfast Show on Sunday mornings.

Melinda Evans from Dyersburg, Tennessee:
"My husband and I watch The Breakfast Show each morning.  (KFVS) is an oasis in the midst of...gloom, doom...and bad news...although you have bad news to report, we also enjoy the good news. Brian Alworth and Jim Burns are the best dressed men on television, bar none.  We enjoy Lauren Keith's stories and Mike Smythe's ViewPoints. Keep up the good work..."

Steven Kirby, Executive Director of the Central Ohio Tournament Anglers' Association in Columbus, Ohio:
"Thanks for publicizing (the arrest of the cheating participant in the Lake Wapappello fishing contest). Many of us like to feel that we're a fraternity of sportsmen above such low level and deceitful tactics...hats off to the conservation officers and members of the highway patrol who followed through..."
Bill Boesen from Dexter:
"School bus drivers are...licensed to carry the world's most precious cargo...their driving skills and personal behavior should be exemplary and above reproach.  Showing young (people) that it is OK to run a stop sign fits neither category."
Jamie Gillette from Perryville:
"What's wrong with the military these days?  There are people out there that want to go in to serve but they can't because you have to have a diploma.  (Before) you were able to get it in the military. I am a man who wants to use my skills and serve my country."
