Wednesday is National Walking Day. To celebrate, the American Heart Association has teamed up with the Springfield-Greene County Park Board to designate area walking paths as part of their Walking Path Program. This program is designed to encourage adults to exercise more. KSMU’s Samuel Crowe took a stroll at Nathaniel Greene Close Memorial Park in Springfield, and has this report.
With an 11 percent voter turnout in Greene County, more than 67 percent of voters favored increasing the sales tax by one-eighth of one percent to fund law enforcement needs. KSMU’s Samuel Crowe was on hand at the Greene County Judicial Courts Facility in Springfield Tuesday night where supporters of the increase waited for the results. He files this report.
