The James Kirkpatrick family of Grassy, Missouri:
"We just love Kid Nation (on KFVS12). It is a breath of clean fresh air...I sure do wish we could have many more clean programs.  Thanks SO MUCH for Kid Nation.  We don't want to miss even one program."
William Wheeler from Marion, Kentucky:
"Thank you for your concern for our views, for less biased news reporting, and for Mike Smythe, whose observations bring both tears and a smile.  Thanks for your weekend broadcasts of M*A*S*H and for carrying the Tube for as long as you did, we really enjoyed it."
Regina Farris from Doniphan, Missouri:
"In Illinois lawmakers are trying (to stop) raising the speed limit for truck drivers...they are professionals and should be treated as such...(truckers) are not asking for a special speed only one allowed for cars.  Truck drivers have a saying, ‘Everyone should have to learn to drive an 18-wheeler before they are allowed to get their license.'  Please remember this is their professional job, not a pleasure cruise."
Nancy Rushing from Poplar Bluff, Missouri
"I agree with Mike Smythe about the gun issue (9/30/07-Campus Police & Guns).  I believe it would be more of a chance for the ones who should not have them to do more guards should have the guns, not the teachers."
