Today’s picks

  • KSPRLighting displays can be nightmare for neighbors. Huge Christmas lighting displays might be a treat for holiday visitors in communities around the region, but they can be a nightmare for neighbors who aren’t thrilled by strangers traipsing across their lawns and blocking their driveways. One Springfield, Mo., woman has complained to local officials about a massive display about half a mile from her house that causes streets to clog up and impatient drivers to create dangerous situations. The city has said it would look into her complaint, but noted there’s nothing illegal about the display.  In Prairie Village, Kan., neighborhood complaints prompted the City Council to issue new regulations that essentially priced a man known as “Mr. Christmas” to unplug a display that started 44 years ago and move it across the state line into Missouri.
  • OzarksFirst:Thousands of bulbs light up for holiday drive-thru show.  People can enjoy about one mile of beautiful Christmas lights on display at Ozarks Finley River Park. People can drive through every Sunday through Thursday from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.. and on Fridays and Saturdays from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. The event is free and open to the public, but you are also free to give a donation at the end. The lights will be on display for viewing pleasure every day through January 6th.
  • KSMU:  MoDOT encourages drivers to rate their work zones. The Missouri Department of Transportation, or MoDOT, is trying to make its work zones safer by asking drivers to completing a survey, rating their drive through the work zone. As winter approaches, MoDOT work zones begin to diminish. But the recent completion of the Highway 60 and 65 interchange has given MoDOT lots of feedback for next year. This survey allows local drivers to directly communicate with MoDOT and vise-versa.
