YourTurn - 1/26/09

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.

Evan Hecht from Jackson, Missouri:
"I like Mike Smythe's guts."

Christina Ritrovato from Jackson, Missouri:
"Why is it we gave all the bailout money to the banking industries and they give themselves a nice big fat raise and we get nothing?  Every other day a business is closing down or laying off....the lower and middle class pay for it.  Land of the free?  (It) should be land of fend for yourself."

Robby Woods from Hickman, Kentucky:
"Mike Shain, thank you for all your years of service and the down home feel when you reported the news.  To me, this is the end of an era.  I grew up watching you and felt you were part of my family.  You are, and always will be, the "Heart" of Heartland News."

Kay Mathis from Cobden, Illinois:
"Mike Shain, I have watched you since I was a young girl and I am always happy when I turn on the news and you are there...I will miss seeing you.  May God bless you with a happy retirement and I hope that we will still get to see you occasionally doing a news special.  My 14 year old daughter always laughs at me when I turn the news on... because I always say, Yea, Mike's on tonight!  Again, may God bless you and your family.  I will miss your smiling face, Mike."
