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.

Heartland viewer Susan Matthews:
"Thank you for your coverage on Rickey Bell's death in Iraq.  It is (nice) that others in the area (now) know what a wonderful young man he was.  He would be amazed at your coverage and the outpouring of love and gratitude toward him."
Nikki Johnson from Buckner, Illinois:
"I love the (YourTurn) segment.  It gives everyone a chance to hear others opinions.  I was affected by the recall of the toys of the Mattel Company...(and) was outraged by the (company's) lack of responsibility when it comes to the lives of children...CEO's need to quit sitting on their duffs and start doing their jobs.  It starts with food, then pet products and now toys we buy for our children are a danger."
Pat Weber from Perryville, Missouri:
"Bravo to Channel 12 and Mike Smythe!  Regarding the ViewPoint on underage drinking, it's nice to know there are other reasonable people willing to take a stand...thank you for helping in that effort."
April Ehlers of Campbell Hill, Illinois:
"(Railroad companies need) to get gates at every crossing.  I don't think it will stop every accident but it will prevent some.  I would be very supportive if railroad companies would actually shell out the dough to fix this problem."
