Local Lookout

Local Lookout is a commitment from KOMU 8 to report the stories of those who are fighting to help flatten the curve. We can rally around our community and those who carry out selfless acts to help their neighbors. Submit your stories of how you’re helping flatten the curve or how a local business is supporting mid-Missouri in this uncertain time.
