Daily brief (10/16): Top picks from the Springfield media

This weekend will apparently be the perfect weekend weatherwise. Today and Sunday will both have highs near 80, with nary a cloud in sight.

Today’s picks:

  • Election: News-Leader: Sparring match between Blunt, Carnahan includes new claims. The final debate between U.S. Senate candidates Roy Blunt and Robin Carnahan includes more jabs over earmarks, Medicare, and health care.
  • Election: OzarksFirst (KOLR/KSFX): Blunt, Carnahan square off in first debate
  • KY3: Conservation Commission votes to restore elk. The commission plans to reintroduce the elk, once native to Missouri, to the south central part of the state.
  • News-Leader: Solo Cup moves closing date from June to March. At the end of September, the plant had 321 full-time employees.
  • KSMU: New flyover at 60/65 interchange to open Sunday. The change will affect northbound drivers on U.S. Highway 65 the most.
  • KSPR: Nixa approves double-digit rate hike. The city said it had no choice but to raise rates because it buys power from City Utilities of Springfield.
