Daily brief (6/6): Top picks from the Springfield media

The first official day of summer is still a couple of weeks away, but you wouldn’t know it by the forecast.

It will be yet another hot and sunny day in the region, with a high of 92. Heat indexes could reach as high as 95, so be sure to take frequent breaks if you’re working outside.
