Daily brief (10/28): Top picks from the Springfield media

Today is sunny with a high near 57 and winds up to 16 mph. A freeze warning has been issued for tonight.

Today’s picks:

  • Election: News-Leader: Republican candidates aiming for sweep of area seats. Missouri Republicans are hoping to pick up five seats in the state House and they are zeroing in on the only two seats held by Democrats in southwest Missouri.
  • KY3: Agritourism is popular and profitable for farms in the Ozarks. The number of family farms across the country continues to shrink but the number of farms offering agritourism–or agritainment–is growing, especially flourishing this time of year.
  • KSPR: Program helps keep teachers in rural school districts. As rural school districts across the country struggle to keep qualified teachers, they’re now looking to southwest Missouri for ideas. The local program is called Ozarks Teacher Corps.
  • OzarksFirst (KOLR/KSPR): Dedication today for Jordan Valley Commons. The City of Springfield is hosting a dedication ceremony for the commons at Jordan Valley this afternoon.
