Daily brief (11/1): Top picks from the Springfield media

November rolls in today with cooler temperatures and a chance of rain tonight. A high of 62 is expected, with a 30 percent chance of rain tonight.

Today’s picks:

  • KY3: Lieutenant governor to address John Q. Hammons issues today. Missouri Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder says he’s received letters of concern regarding Hammons and his company, Hammons Hotels. (Other coverage: OzarksFirst (KOLR/KSFX)).
  • News-Leader: Dealers question safety of former FEMA trailers. On Oct. 23, 183 trailers were auctioned, and the president of the Missouri RV Dealers Association wants to know more about the trailers. FEMA has not confirmed whether the trailers are actually from the emergency management agency.
  • OzarksFirst (KOLR/KSFX): Springfield schools challenged by higher enrollment. The Springfield school district has 169 more students this year, two-thirds of whom are kindergartners.
  • Election: KSPR: 8th Congressional District candidates talk about mudslinging. KSPR concludes its “ask the candidates” series with the question “There’s been some mudslinging in this campaign. What would you say is something you think voters need to know about you that maybe your opponents have misconstrued about you?” (KSPR also asked the question of the 7th Congressional District candidates.)
  • Election: SGFNews: E-mails, campaign finance: Down to the wire in the 7th District. We break down the latest flap over an e-mail purporting to be from Scott Eckersley’s campaign as well as the latest campaign-finance numbers.
