President Trump’s visit to Springfield last month cost the city of Springfield $123,944.92.  At the Springfield City Council meeting Monday night, Springfield City Manager Jason Gage said costs break down to $12,707.02 for the airport; $924.55 for Emergency Communications; $2,013.96 for Environmental Services; $8831.78 for Fire; $819.38 for Parks; $82,305.87 for Police and $16,342.36 for Public Works.

According to Gage, the total may change a bit due to adjustments departments might make after reviewing payroll costing reports, but he doesn’t expect it to change much.

Chronic Wasting Disease, or CWD, is a fatal sickness that deteriorates the brains and nervous systems of white-tailed deer.  And now, it’s affecting deer hunting in Missouri. 

The Missouri Department of Conservation said there have been 33 new cases of CWD in Missouri over the last year, bringing the total 75. That’s a very low percentage of the deer population in Missouri, but the disease is showing signs of growth.
