Daily brief (11/14): Top picks from the Springfield media

Today will be another sunny but cold day, with a high of about 48. The temperatures will head toward more seasonable highs in the mid-50s.

Today’s picks:

  • News-Leader: Seniors weigh Medicare options ahead of deadline. New federal health-care changes from legislation passed this year mean more savings and discounts caught in Medicare’s “doughnut hole.”
  • OzarksFirst (KOLR/KSFX): 50,000 deer bagged on first day of gun season. Saturday marked the beginning of the gun-hunting season in Missouri. (Other coverage: KY3)
  • KSPR: New runway at Springfield-Branson National Airport. The airport built a $15 million runway, constructed mostly with federal stimulus funds, will prevent planes from having to cross each other’s paths.
  • News-Leader: MSU defends 17 programs that produce few graduates. Missouri State University, a publicly funded university, is reviewing the programs after Gov. Jay Nixon called on state universities to take a hard look at their smaller programs.
