Daily brief (12/24): Top picks from the Springfield media

A white Christmas, perhaps?

Today will be colder, with a high of 33 and a wintry mix of rain, snow, and freezing drizzle. The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for the Ozarks, noting that a light accumulation of snow and sleet are expected.

Today’s picks:

  • KSMU: Justice for all: Missouri’s public-defender system in crisis. Senior producer Jennifer Moore wraps up a weeklong look at Missouri’s public-defender system by examining its future. (Previous segments: Part I, Part II, Part III, Part IV)
  • OzarksFirst (KOLR/KSFX): MoDOT, city crews prepare for white Christmas. Today’s wintry mix may mean hazardous driving conditions, but the Missouri Department of Transportation and the city of Springfield are prepping the streets for the weather.
  • News-Leader: ‘No confidence’ vote planned for Willard mayor. Willard’s Board of Aldermen plan to vote Tuesday on a “no confidence” measure in Mayor Jamie Schoolcraft after a state auditor’s report criticized the city’s financial practices.
  • KY3: Effort to ban alcohol sales at Springfield theaters gets enough ballot signatures. The proposal, which originated with the Springfield DWI Task Force, has received enough valid signatures to be put on the April ballot.
  • OzarksFirst: Salvation Army down $40,000 as bell-ringing season ends. The Salvation Army in Springfield, which provides a variety of charitable services throughout the area, is running $40,000 behind last year’s donations.
