Daily brief (2/17): Top picks from the Springfield media

BreezyToday is expected to be the warmest day of the week, with partly sunny skies and a high of 71.

It will be breezy, though, with winds between 20 and 24 mph.

Today’s picks:

  • News-Leader: Water watchers give streams a ‘C.’ The Ozarks Water Watch Foundation, a group that monitors water quality, says the streams going into Table Rock Lake are “impaired,” safe but not pristine. (Other coverage: OzarksFirst, KSMU)
  • KY3: Airport may switch to private screeners. An amendment to a U.S. Senate bill would allow the Springfield-Branson National Airport to switch from government security officers to private screeners. (Other coverage: KSPR)
  • OzarksFirst [KOLR/KSFX]: Proposed funding cuts would affect public broadcasting. One U.S. House proposal would cut millions of dollars set aside for public broadcasting.
  • KSMU: Springfield Borders store among those to close. The closing also shuts down a venue for local musicians, who often performed at the store.
  • KSPR: Some sheriffs ignore Sunshine Law. An audit of sheriff departments around the state by the Missouri Sunshine Coalition found that some offices didn’t respond in timely fashion, overcharged for records, or simply ignored requests.
