Daily brief (1/23): Top picks from the Springfield media

There’s a slight chance of rain or snow before noon today. High will be 38, but the temperature will drop this evening and could lead to freezing drizzle.

Though tomorrow will be mostly cloudy, snow chances move out of the forecast.

I don’t usually write about sports, but even if you’re not a basketball fan, you need to watch the ending shot of the Missouri State Bears game against Creighton. It’s the stuff movies are made of. And it was made in front of more than 10,000 fans — the second-largest crowd ever for a Bears home game.

Today’s picks:

  • News-Leader: Ozarks’ homeless navigate maze of support. Finding a warm place to sleep when temperatures dip is a challenge for the homeless in the Ozarks.
  • KSPR: Billings plant catches fire. The Vermillion Logging Plant caught fire because of an electrical panel in the boiler room. No one was injured, and it isn’t clear how long the plant will be closed. (Other coverage: OzarksFirst)
  • KSMU: New book shines light on historic West Plains explosion. A dance hall explosion in 1928 killed 39 people in West Plains
  • OzarksFirst [KOLR/KSFX]: People flock to see eagles in Springfield. The Springfield Conservation Nature Center’s Eagle Days continues today, with eagle viewing at Lake Springfield.
