• The family of John W. Alspaugh, a former MU education professor, donated a 201-acre nature area off Mexico Gravel Road near Vandiver Drive for what will ultimately become a new city park. The city has earmarked $300,000 to develop nature trails on the property, which will serve as the trailhead for the northern section of the Hinkson Creek trail.
