SPRINGFIELD, Mo. - U.S. Senator Roy Blunt will make a stop in the Ozarks today to discuss the issue of student loan rates. The U.S. Senate already passed a deal that would restructure loans for college students, providing lower rates. But it's now the U.S. House of Representatives' turn to consider the deal. Blunt will give a first-hand look at some of those details today at Ozarks Technical Community College's Springfield campus at 10:30 a.m., and the college's Table Rock campus in Hollister at 1:30 p.m. (Editor's Note: An earlier version of this story incorrectly identified Blunt as a U.S. Representative.)

These days, classic passenger trains operate out of Branson's historic downtown depot.  However, those on board the Branson Scenic Railway never get far.  The service is simply a 20-minute excursion ride.
