Weekend brief (11/21): Top picks from the Springfield media

Today will be mostly cloudy with a slight chance of showers tonight. Today’s high is expected to hit 65.

Today’s picks:

  • News-Leader: Cuts to state tax credits recommended. A commission appointed by the governor is recommending that Missouri cut a number of tax credits — which have grown more than $200 million over the past decade — to help make up an expected $700 million deficit in the next fiscal year.
  • KY3: An Ozarks holiday tradition lights up again. The Christmas lights display at Springfield’s Cornerstone Church will light up again this season for the first time in two years. (Springfield’s Festival of Lights also kicked off this weekend. [OzarksFirst (KOLR/KSFX)])
  • KSMU: Family Violence Center enters a new era. One of the oldest victim centers in the area will rebrand itself “Harmony House” and put a greater focus on prevention.
  • OzarksFirst (KOLR/KSFX): OTC gets $500,000 boost. Local businesswoman Carol Jones donated the money to Ozarks Technical Community College for scholarships for disadvantaged women and the Carol Jones Writing Center.
