Today’s picks

  • News-Leader: Candidate for CU’s top job reacts to ‘VIP list.’ The Commercial Appeal in Memphis reported that Herman Morris, one of three top candidates to be general manager of Springfield City Utilities, once had a “VIP list” of people who could reach him; Morris says the “list” was a memo to prevent staffers from screening calls.
  • OzarksFirst [KOLR/KSFX]: One Missing Link helps family of missing Willard couple. Family members of Rebecca and Russell Porter posted fliers Wednesday with the help of One Missing Link, a local group that helps families of missing people. The Willard couple has been missing since Sunday. (Other coverage: KY3, KSPR, News-Leader)
  • KY3: ‘Rough road’ for residents seeking help with streets. The roads leading to Stone Hollow, a subdivision in Christian County south of Ozark, have become littered with deep potholes. And it’s not clear whose responsibility it is to fix them.
