YourTurn - 8/31/09

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.

Sean Magee from Jackson, Missouri:
"I recently helped a lady change a flat tire.  She was almost in tears and amazed that I was helping her and refusing money.  To me this is just sad.  What has happened to common courtesy?  I will keep helping those in need when I can and hope that others will ‘Pay It Forward'."

Edward Deckerd from Perryville, Missouri:
"Mike Smythe thinks it is great that adults are required to wear motorcycle helmets and seat belts.  The government says they are going to save our lives no matter how we feel about it...let's pass a law that will save millions of lives.  Stop abortion!"

Phil Steiner from Bell City, Missouri:
"I listened to Mike Smythe's ViewPoint regarding prisons and education and agree as an ideal.  I worked at a large state women's correctional institution for about eight years and became familiar with the educational offerings...the general mindset of the inmates was the same as the general mindset of the population that produced them: Education has no value.  A widespread belief among inmates is that education is for losers.  They can stand on the corner and sell drugs and make more money in an hour that working a week in a job."

Bill Knoderer from Oran, Missouri:
"Have you noticed when wholesale commodity prices increase that grocery prices increase?   Now that dairy, wheat, corn and diesel fuel have fallen in price from last year's highs why not a KFVS12 news follow-up?  The farmers are blamed when food prices go up but who takes the credit if prices ever go down?"
