Daily report (6/10): Top picks from the Springfield media

We may finally get a break from the dry spell.

Thunderstorms are likely by tonight, and rain chances will linger through the weekend. Otherwise, today will be mostly sunny, with a high near 90. It will be breezy, with wind gusts of up to 20 mph.

Tomorrow will be a little milder, with partly sunny skies and a high of 85.

Today’s picks

  • News-Leader: State’s $500 million rainy-day fund unlikely for Joplin relief. The state Constitution requires that money used from the fund be replenished within three years, and legislators fear that the current budget situation would make the $50 million price tag for Joplin’s recovery impossible to repay in that timeframe.

  • OzarksFirst [KOLR/KSFX]: Decision expected today in smoke-free ordinance case. Greene County Associate Circuit Judge Jason Brown is expected to rule on a request for an injunction to stop Springfield’s smoking ban from going into effect this weekend. (Other coverage: News-Leader)
  • KY3: CoxHealth ready to open another clinic in Springfield Walmart. The location will be the fifth Walmart location for CoxHealth in the area.
  • KSMU: Federal budget cuts stressful for low-income seniors. Recent cuts have reduced the amount available for the Senior Community Service Employment Program.
