YourTurn - 2/16/09

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.

Martha Frame from Marion, Illinois:
"Congratulations to the KFVS12 StormTeam.  They did a superb job of informing the public on the latest weather event.  Job well done.  Keep up the good work."

Cathy White from Portageville, Missouri:
"GREAT JOB to all the linemen who have been working long hours to restore electric service...I am a Pemiscot-Dunklin customer and truly believe they have done everything humanly possible to get the electricity back on..."

Ted Click from Leopold, Missouri:
"Wouldn't it be wiser to bury electric lines underground?  Lines have been strung on poles
for the last 100 years.  This is the 21st century.  There has to be a better way...think about it the next time you're without power."

Steve Vasicek from Southern Illinois:
"Thanks Mike Smythe for your insight on the cigar revolution in the tobacco industry (2/1/09-Fruit Cigars)...I am impressed with your (ViewPoint) of the tax loophole.  A large percentage of these cigars are cut open and filled with marijuana.  What a mess!  We enjoy KFVS12 and speak for a lot of folks in Southern Illinois.  Keep on keeping them on their toes with ViewPoint."
