This year, voters in Missouri will be able to vote by mail without an excuse, but there are some restrictions. Lawmakers passed a bill that expands the list of why someone could vote absentee, due to the coronavirus pandemic. Those who don't meet the criteria, can vote absentee but ballots need to be notarized. The League of Women Voters says that's not enough.
More than three million people visit Springfield each year. And they each spend, on average, about $650, according to the Springfield Convention & Visitor’s Bureau. That’s a significant boost to the local economy. But it's been on pause during the pandemic. Tracy Kimberlin, CEO, and President of the CVB, says there's been an improvement in the last few weeks, but it wasn’t significant.

Should you go back to the gym as they start reopening and should you wear a mask? In this Ozarks Tonight, Jenifer Abreu talks to Dr. Rand McClain of LCR Health about that.

May is Asian Pacific Islander American Heritage Month, which celebrates the achievements and contributions of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in the United States. The month of May was chosen because the first Japanese immigrants arrived in the United States on May 7, 1843. And the Transcontinental Railroad was completed on May 10, 1869. The majority of the workers who built it were Chinese immigrants. In this Ozarks Tonight, Jenifer Abrey speaks with a Springfield resident, who is a champion of culture and diversity in this community. Saehee Duran is the pastor of Life 360 Intercultural Campus. Originally from South Korea, Saehee has lived in Springfield for eleven years. "I think it's important when we celebrate Asian Heritage month that we educate our community that Asian is not just Chinese. We have a lot of diversity in the Asian ethnic group. We have Korean, Japanese, Indians, and all of that. And it's beautiful to celebrate this. And we can educate people by sharing life together," she said. Saehee also added that you don't have to go far to find diversity and opportunities to learn about different cultures. "And get to know your neighbors because really, Springfield is a diverse city if you just look around," she said.
We are hearing stories of a possible meat shortage since many plants across the country are shutting down. Grocery stores are implementing a limit on how much meat one person can purchase at a time. But for local cattle farmers, there’s no shortage of meat, they say. In this Ozarks Tonight, Jenifer Abreu talks to Traves Merrick, owner of Herdsman-Gleonda Angus Farms and the VP of Region 7 of the Missouri Cattlemen’s Association, a member-driven organization that advocates for the cattle industry in Missouri.
