Daily brief (10/29): Top picks from the Springfield media

Sunshine is forecast for today with highs around 63 and a light south wind from 6-9 mph. A freeze warning is in effect for Friday night into early Saturday morning.

Today’s picks:

  • Election: OzarksFirst (KOLR/KSPR): Breaking down proposition B. The USDA says Missouri is one of the top two states when it comes to dog breeding. That distinction has led to a hot-button issue on Tuesday’s ballot: Proposition B.
  • Election: News-Leader: Campaign pulls robo-calls following criticism. The Missouri House Republican Campaign Committee has stopped running robo-calls that accused Rep. Charlie Norr, D-Springfield, of accepting campaign contributions from a representative of the pornography industry.
  • News-Leader: John Q. Hammons’ company undergoes shakeup as hotelier battles health issues. Springfield City Manager Greg Burris said the new John Q. Hammons chief executive officer, Jacquie Dowdy, met with city staff two weeks ago to detail some of the changes.
  • KY3: Children are four times more likely to get hit by a car on Halloween than other days. Halloween is a fun but dangerous holiday. Dangers are in places families might not expect.
