YourTurn - 8/4/08

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.

Daniel Fain from Poplar Bluff, Missouri:
"There may be a half-million commercial truck drivers on the road that are physically unfit to drive (but) how many non-commercial drivers are there?  Truckers have many rules to follow that don't apply to the normal driver.  How many people work ten to twelve hours per day and then drive an hour or more home?  Companies that allow (truck drivers) to operate should be held responsible and drivers who try to get around the rules should be held accountable.  Making things more difficult for good, honest, hard working drivers of this nation because of some bad drivers is wrong."

Teigan Lemons from Mount Vernon, Illinois:
"So everyone is ‘thumbs down' on Swingtown?...change the channel.  Viewers are not being forced to watch it.  I love Swingtown.  We get together with friends on Thursday night and watch it together because it is something new and funny.  There is a new generation sweeping in, meaning new shows, a new president, new everything.  Buckle up viewers; it is not going to stop."

Weston White from Pinckneyville, Illinois:
"If you don't like it, don't watch it. Boycotting an entire local station that has nothing to do with what the network airs is going to get you nowhere. Be glad you HAVE a station to provide you local news coverage. It's becoming unheard of in parts of the country to have local news...especially news as informative as KFVS!"
