Morning brief (9/13): Top picks from the Springfield media

Fortunately, there appears to be no superstition regarding Monday the 13th.

Today’s picks:

  • News-Leader: MSU faculty see positive signs with Cofer. Faculty members say they’re hopeful about the openness and transparency of Cofer’s administration as the new president has begun his work at Missouri State University.
  • OzarksFirst (KOLR/KSFX): Rains heavily damage Polk County roads. The Polk County Emergency Management Department says more than a dozen roads sustained flood damage.
  • KY3: Work Ready Missouri program in action in Taney County. A new program provides training for workers seeking updated skills.
  • KSPR: Jasper County inmates can send only postcards. After Oct. 1, the Jasper County Jail — like other lockups nationally — will restrict inmate correspondence to postcards.
  • KSMU: Homebound, blind, elderly still use library through “walking books.” The Springfield-Greene County Library District has developed a program to get books to people who might not otherwise have access to them.
