Daily brief (11/13): Top picks from the Springfield media

Sunny, with a high near 53. Wind chill values as low as 30 early.

Tonight will be partly cloudy, with a low around 31.

Little change is expected the rest of the week.  Lows will run down to around freezing with highs in the mid 50s.

Deer Season

Finally some nice cold weather has moved in and this should get the deer moving around a bit more.  Unfortunately tonight will be clear and the deer should be feeding then so you will have to be ready early in the morning around areas they bed down.  This weather pattern should stick around all week so the deer will probably develop some sort of a pattern.  If you can figure that out it should bring success.

Today’s picks

  • KSPR: Black Friday: More stores to open on Thanksgiving nightTarget Corp and Toys R Us Inc are joining the U.S. retailers offering holiday specials earlier, including on Thanksgiving Day, to kickstart the biggest selling season of the year. The stakes are high for U.S. retailers, which earn more than a third of their annual sales in the holiday season. Traditionally, they have waited until Black Friday, the day after the U.S. Thanksgiving, to make their big end-of-the-year push. Target said it planned to open at 9 p.m. on Thanksgiving, three hours earlier than last year, when it was closed on Thanksgiving and opened at 12 a.m. on Friday.  Toys R Us, which opened its stores at 9 p.m. on Thanksgiving night last year, will open them an hour earlier this year.
  • OzarksFirst:Final flu shot clinic is today for uninsured adults. Adults without insurance to pay for a flu shot can still get one at the final seasonal flu clinic scheduled in Springfield.  It is set for 9 a.m. to noon today,  Tuesday, November 13 at Council of Churches of the Ozarks, 627 N. Glenstone Ave. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) now recommends that everyone over the age of 6 months receive a flu shot.
  • KY3: Rainwater bottled in Texas, sold at Rams games in St. Louis. It falls from the skies of Texas. But bottled rainwater from the Lone Star State is finding its way to the Show-Me state — served up to football fans in St. Louis. A company in Smithville, Texas collects rainwater, purifies it and sells it as drinking water. Rainwater is cleaner and doesn’t have the minerals present in regular bottled water, nor is it treated with chlorine. The St. Louis Rams website says its own label called “Thirst and Ten” will be available in retail outlets around the city.
