Daily brief (10/3): Top picks from the Springfield media

After a cool start, today will warm up nicely. It will be sunny and clear, with a high of 77.

Expect more of the same for the rest of the week, with clear skies and highs in the upper 70s.

Today’s picks

  • OzarksFirst: Public meeting today about law-enforcement tax. Greene County commissioners will have a public meeting beginning at 9:30 a.m. today to hear from citizens about the proposed 1/4-cent sales tax. It would raise $10 million a year for law enforcement.
  • KSPR: Gas prices continue to drop. Gas prices have fallen 5 cents per gallon in the past week. The  average for the area now sits at $3.15 for regular unleaded. That’s still up more than 60 cents from the same price last year, but it’s 36 cents less than last month’s prices.
  • KY3: Police investigating shooting death. Sunday, a man was found dead with a gunshot wound to the head in the 1400 block of West Hall in Ozark. Police have not released the victim’s identity but say a person of interest was caught on surveillance video. (Other coverage: OzarksFirst, KSPR, News-Leader)
  • News-Leader: A glimpse inside Christian County’s emerging mansion. A software developer has been building a 72,000-square-foot mansion called Pensmore that’s designed to be energy-efficient and disaster-proof.
  • OzarksFirst: Not too late for fall planting. Cabbage, broccoli, and cauliflower are among the vegetables Ozarkers can plant in the fall for a late harvest, one local growing expert says.
