Tomorrow will be more of the same, although it won’t be quite as warm. A high of 53 is expected.

Today’s picks:

  • News-Leader: Local programs threatened by budget cuts. Community Development Block Grants and community policing programs are among the targets of the budget ax in Washington.
  • OzarksFirst [KOLR/KSFX]: Ozarks community sends off soldier. Staff Sgt. Matthew Holmes of Strafford has served two tours in Iraq and now is heading to Afghanistan.
  • KY3: Behavioral therapy for parents could help kids lose weight. When parents eat healthier, so do their kids, experts say.
  • News-Leader: Task force supports sewer-rate hike. The proposal, if approved, could send monthly sewer bills for Springfield city residents up $10 a month over the next year. The increases would be used to fund $50 million in required wastewater improvements.
