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.
Barry Bean from Peach Orchard, Missouri:
"Regarding Mike Smythe's ViewPoint on crime in East St. Louis, I agree...but he is clearly mistaken suggesting that this is due to late night bars, guns, and alcohol. Illinois has some of the most restrictive gun control in the country, so guns couldn't be a problem there..."
Tony Powell from Murray, Kentucky:
"Regarding Mike Smythe's ViewPoint on the Georgia Works program, I would never work for free in order to ‘audition' for a job. That's what college internships are for. Regardless of the 3000 hired in Georgia that's still 18,000 work weeks and $720,000 labor hours that companies have received for free...the divide between the haves and have nots has never been wider and this program is not only unfair but humiliating..."
Elaine Ketring from West Frankfort, Illinois:
"I am currently unemployed. Would I work six weeks for an employer for free and continue to receive my unemployment benefits...YES! If the prospective employer can see me for more than an hour, I'm sure I could land the job."
Terry Masters from Cape Girardeau:
"Is it just me or are we all tired of the ‘balloon boy' story. (Soldiers) are dying in Afghanistan just like they did in World War II, Korea, and Viet Nam and the national media continues this ridiculous story."
