YourTurn - 5/21/10

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.

Doug Howard from Piedmont, Missouri:
"(Regarding Mike Smythe's ViewPoint on paying students for school achievements) I respect the viewer who suggested it is OK to motivate students toward better grades with money because adults are also motivated by money in their job. (However) she is missing the point of Smythe's argument…education should be about becoming a better person who is able to appreciate life and understand the complexity on a higher scale, not about having a better job because of money…"

Daniel Burpo from Poplar Bluff, Missouri:
"How many of our Missouri lawmakers got paid off for not passing the law against texting and driving. It is a danger to all drivers yet nothing is being done…we have a seatbelt law and stopping texting and driving seems more important to me."

Rod Lipe from Cape Girardeau writes:
"It's refreshing to see (Arizona) take a stand against illegal aliens in this country. I agree with this law. Will it target some people, of course! It's about time that the United States shuts it's open door policy…I understand concerns about being targeted but the line should be drawn and the Governor of Arizona has taken the first step…more states should follow and take a stand now."

Heartland viewer Jackie Burton writes:
"John Dissauer's live stream feed of the storms helped settle my nerves. I will be a dedicated viewer to any live stream that the KFVS12 StormTeam does during severe weather."
