Today’s picks

  • KSPR: Banned books return to Republic School District — in secured spot. The Republic School Board agreed to a compromise yesterday: Two books recently removed from the library — “Slaughterhouse-Five” by Kurt Vonnegut and “Twenty Boy Summer” by Sarah Ockler — will be available for checkout to parents or guardians. (Other coverage: News-Leader, OzarksFirst)
  • News-Leader: Venue, scheduling issues nix powwow. The annual powwow celebrating Native American Heritage Month won’t take place next month on the Missouri State University campus because of scheduling issues. It’s the biggest annual event put on by an MSU minority student group.
  • KY3: City manager: Springfield retail sales up. City Manager Greg Burris told the City Council that sales-tax receipts in Springfield have grown, although a closer look at state data indicate the increase is not as much as it first appears.
  • OzarksFirst: Weather delays have pushed back rec center opening. The new recreation center on the Missouri State University campus is scheduled to open in mid-February; campus officials had hoped to open the center this semester.
  • KY3: Dog Fest this weekend to raise money for dog park. The ninth annual Dog Fest will be from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Saturday at Chesterfield Park (2511 W. Republic Road).
