The Springfield community is mourning the loss of James Quentin Hammons. The iconic hotel developer and philanthropist, who referred to himself as John Q., died Sunday at the age of 94. KSMU’s Scott Harvey has this remembrance.
Two years to the day that an EF-5 tornado ripped through Joplin, killing 161 people, the city was greeted with near perfect weather, as thousands came out Wednesday to honor the lives of those lost, and reflect upon the continuing recovery effort. KSMU’s Scott Harvey was there.
