Daily brief (10/24): Top picks from the Springfield media

Today will be the calm before the storm.

It will be sunny, with a high of 77. The low will dip to 55 tonight, and tomorrow will be another warm one, with a high of 80. But rain moves into the forecast tomorrow night, and with it, come cooler temperatures. Highs will be in the 50s for the rest of the week.

Today’s picks

  • News-Leader: Blunt seeking leadership role in Senate. Sen. Roy Blunt is hoping to reprise his leadership status in the House with a top position in the Senate, as he hopes to become vice chairman of the Senate Republican Caucus.
  • OzarksFirst: ‘Makeover’ homes on time in Joplin. Producers of the “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” say the show’s plan to build seven houses in seven days appears to be on track. (Other coverage: KSPR, KY3, News-Leader)
  • KY3: Best-selling author tackles bullying in Marshfield schools. The Marshfield School District brought in Rosalind Wiseman, whose book was the inspiration for “Mean Girls,” to talk about the issue of bullying.
