We’ve got one more sunny but cold day in store before the high temperatures start to creep toward the 50-degree mark. Today’s high is expected to hit 35, and a steady wind will make it feel colder.

  • News-Leader: PTA pushes for education priorities. The Missouri PTA, supported by the Springfield PTA, wants to maintain education funding and local control for schools districts.
  • KY3: New Lake Taneycomo bridge opens. The $12.2 million project opened yesterday to traffic. (Other coverage: KSPR)
