Daily brief (12/29): Top picks from the Springfield media

The warmup continues today, with a high of 47 expected. But rain and drizzle will dampen much of the day. It will be windy, with gusts as high as 24 mph.

The popular Blue and Gold (boys) and Pink and White (girls) high-school basketball tournaments continue today at sites throughout Springfield. KSPR has a good roundup of results and schedules.

Today’s picks:

  • News-Leader: Willard aldermen approve ‘no-confidence’ vote against mayor. The Willard Board of Aldermen approved the nonbinding vote Tuesday after the city was chastised by the state auditor for poor financial practices. (Other coverage: KY3, OzarksFirst, KSPR)
  • OzarksFirst (KOLR/KSFX): Greene County treasurer nominations sent to the governor. Gov. Jay Nixon has four nominees to choose from: Democrats Dave Coonrod, Jim Lee, and Greg Weaver, and Republican Justin Hill, who is currently serving as interim treasurer.
  • KY3: Recycling centers busy with post-holiday drop-offs. Springfield’s Yard Waste Recycling Center will accept Christmas trees through January.
  • News-Leader: Gillioz supporters optimistic following fund-raiser. The Springfield Land Preservation Trust has raised $190,000 of $500,000 needed to stave off foreclosure.
