Daily brief (10/21): Top picks from the Springfield media

Another cool morning will blossom into a beautiful, sunny day with a high about 73.

Today’s picks:

  • KY3: New hospital could spur economic development. A planned $105 million orthopedic hospital from St. John’s could mean more development at Evans Road and U.S. Highway 65.
  • KSPR: Nixa mayor wants donations to expand park system. The city doesn’t have the budget for desired park improvements, but Mayor Sam Clifton is pitching the idea of donations as an alternative source of funding.
  • Election: KSMU: Springfield mayor urges ‘no’ vote on Prop A. Missouri Proposition A would effectively eliminate an earnings tax in Kansas City and St. Louis. (Other coverage: KTTS).
  • OzarksFirst (KOLR/KSFX): Thieves swipe A/C units at area churches. Rural churches are the prime targets for the thefts.
  • News-Leader: MSU officials promote HPV vaccine for men. Missouri State University is urging men to get vaccinated against the human papillomavirus, which causes genital warts in men and women and cervical cancer in women. But the grant for the vaccines  isn’t supposed to be used to vaccinate men.
