Daily brief (12/30): Top picks from the Springfield media

Has someone seen winter?

Today will be unseasonably warm, with a high of 63 (yes, really). It will also be breezy, with winds between 18 and 24 mph, and thunderstorms are expected to move in tonight.

Enjoy the warm temperatures because they’ll drop all day tomorrow and fall below freezing for New Year’s Eve.

Today’s picks:

  • News-Leader: Comprehensive smoking ban will be on April ballot. More than 1,200 signatures were verified to get the proposed measure on the ballot. (Other coverage: KSPR, KY3)
  • OzarksFirst (KOLR/KSFX): MoDOT seeks input on rail plan. The Missouri Department of Transportation has put up an online survey to hear from the public about a statewide rail plan.
  • KY3: Whooping cough cases on the rise. Like other places around the country, Greene County is seeing a rise in whooping-cough cases, despite the availability of a vaccine against the disease.
