Daily brief (12/16): Top picks from the Springfield media

Today will begin with areas of freezing fog and stay mostly cloudy throughout the day, with a high of about 36. A steady north wind with gusts of up to 18 mph will keep it chilly.

Today’s picks:

  • News-Leader: Efforts to save the Gillioz Theatre heating up. Donors have begun chipping in money to stop foreclosure of the Gillioz Theatre. Guaranty Bank, which holds the theater’s $3.5 million loan, would like to see between $500,000 and $750,000 to stop the action. (Other coverage: KY3, OzarksFirst [KOLR/KSFX])
  • OzarksFirst (KOLR/KSFX): Deck the halls of the Humane Society tonight. The Humane Society of Southwest Missouri is asking people bring by needed goods for the animal shelter from 5 to 8 p.m.
  • News-Leader: Giving spirit thrives for United Way despite economy. United Way of the Ozarks is close to its $3.5 million goal. (Other coverage: KY3)

  1. OzarksFirst actually had better coverage than KY3 on Gillioz. Was hoping you’d have a link to their story.

  2. My oversight. Thanks for the tip — I’ve added it to the list.

    And thanks for reading!
