She is an AP award winning journalist. Lindsey has won several awards from the Press Club of Southeast Texas. In 2012, KFDM won an Edward R.

He was dragged to his death behind a truck while tied to a logging chain.

A typical baby goes through 10 to 12 diapers a day.

That's more than 70 diapers a week, which adds up to 3,640 per year.

With disposable diapers, that means a lot of trash - and a lot of expense.

Some new parents opt for reusable cloth diapers, which have come a long way from just a piece of cloth and a few safety pins.

Local Vaccines and autism: Doctor says shots safer than trusting Jenny McCarthy Vaccines and autism: Doctor says shots safer than trusting Jenny McCarthy(Video)
Vaccines have long been villified by some people in the autism community for having a possible link to the disorder.

Actress Jenny McCarthy has been very outspoken about her opinion on the issue.

"Without a doubt in my mind, I think vaccinations triggered Evan's autism," she told CNN.

McCarthy stood by this belief for years, using her celebrity to spread her message.

"Isn't it ironic that in 1983, there was 10 shots and now there's 36 and the rise of autism happened at the same time?" she told Larry King. "Parent after parent after parent says, 'I vaccinated my baby, they got a fever and then they stopped speaking.'"

Through the years, many parents have decided not to vaccinate their kids because of the perceived risk.

Some doctors say that has now put people at risk of contracting diseases that otherwise would have been supressed by the vaccines.

That's one of the reasons so many doctors and pediatricians disagree with the views McCarthy espoused.

"Vaccines work," said Dr. Pilar Bradshaw. "Vaccines are safe."

What's dangerous, she said, is taking a celebritiy's opinon as fact.
