Daily brief (11/19): Top picks from the Springfield media

Skies today are sunny with the temperature reaching a high near 58. Wind chill values dip as low as 27 early, while a south wind between 10 and 15 mph gusts near 20 mph.

Today’s picks:

  • News-Leader: Analysis indicates supply of water to shrink. A long-awaited computer model of groundwater supplies in the Springfield area and an unexpected gesture of interstate cooperation headlined a water conference Thursday in Springfield (other coverage KY3).
  • OzarkFirst (KOLR/KSPR): Expedia unveils renovated terminal and plans for more jobs. For decades, the old Springfield-Branson National Airport terminal was the starting point for vacations and business trips. It still is, but in a totally different way (other coverage SBJ).
  • News-Leader: Efforts to unionize faculty at MSU gains momentum. A month after a Missouri State University faculty committee concluded professors can benefit from having their own union, eight professors have stepped forward, trying to make a union chapter a reality on campus.
  • News-Leader: OTC students make tiger crate for zoo. Until this semester, Jim Bridwell and his welding students at Ozarks Technical Community College had never seen, much less built, a tiger crate. But when Dickerson Park Zoo officials recently asked if Bridwell and his students would be interested in the construction project, Bridwell said yes.
