KOAM MORNING NEWS TO KNOW 11-28

Updated:

CJ SPORTS AUTHORITY  

  • Voters will soon decide the fate of a new sports complex proposal in Carl Junction.  The proposal calls for five new baseball and softball fields, along with one new tee ball field. The project would be built on 40 acres on the west side of town.  The total cost of this proposal sits right now at around $4.8 million dollars.  Tax payers will soon decide if increased city property taxes *only in Carl Junction* will pay for this proposed project.

STOLEN KETTLE

  • A "Salvation Army" kettle stand was stolen outside of the "Hobby Lobby" in Joplin over the weekend.       And Army officials are worried that scammers might use it to line their pockets.           The stand costs almost $500, and was stolen sometime between Saturday night, and Monday morning.  Salvation Army officials are concerned, crooks might set up a bogus collection site, and take advantage of 4-State generosity.

BRUSH FIRE

  • Fire crews from five different communities on Monday responded to a grass fire in south Joplin.  The fire damaged a nearby home and destroyed a barn and car.  Fire crews don't yet know the cause of this fire.
