Weekend brief (10/10): Today’s picks from the Springfield media

Time to get out and enjoy the sunshine: Rain is expected tomorrow, and the highs will dip from their unseasonable highs after today.

Today’s picks:

  • News-Leader: Botanical Center to be unveiled Monday. The $4.35 million center, developed by Springfield-Greene County Parks Department at Nathanael Greene-Close Memorial Park, was funded by multiple sources, including county funds and private donations.
  • OzarksFirst (KOLR/KSFX): School reunion highlights Ozarks history. Eastwood Junior High was open for only seven years, but its students remember a key moment in Springfield’s history: integration.
  • News-Leader: Area bands battle for top spots at Ozarko Festival. Willard took top honors in the Gold division finals. (Other coverage: OzarksFirst.)
  • KY3: North Point Church members spruce up teen shelter. Almost 200 volunteers helped paint and clean up The Kitchen Rare Breed, which helps keep homeless kids off the streets.
  • KSMU: Visitor from Islamabad: Pakistan is pointing the finger at the wrong enemy. Dr. Pervez Hoodbhoy, a visiting lecturer at Missouri State University, said Pakistan needs to reject extremism to combat terrorism.
