These are the biggest stories of the week on Joplin News First.  We share them live every Thursday morning on KODE 12 with Howie and Bubba and Coleman on Good Morning Four States. And we also list them out so you can watch them back here on Four States Home Page.  

Our favorite story of the week if the BONUS of Sue the puppy being found.  She was missing from the grain truck rollover on 171 last week.  We put out a message that our tipsters shared over the weekend and she was located and her owner flew in on Wednesday and they were reunited at the airport.  

Thank you so much to our tipsters!  Sue is adorable.  

Here is the PROBABLE CAUSE STATEMENT filed in our #1 story where three people were violently assaulted on Sunday night in Carthage in the 800 block of West Chestnut.
