(SAVANNAH, Mo.) The Savannah Mascot Committee is working diligently to eventually present recommendations to present to the Savannah R-3 Board of Education regarding the future of the "Savages" mascot.

On Thursday night, the committee met and worked in three groups to cover three different topics:

-Origin of mascot
-Cost to change
-Research what other schools have done

The nine-person committee (with alternates also) will spend the next two months gathering as much information as possible to send a recommendation to the school board.

More hot and humid weather on the way for today with highs back in the upper 90s with some areas reaching triple digits. Use caution when spending time outside because heat index values will once again be in the triple digits for many. A cold front will start to approach our area tonight and stall to our north giving us a few chances for showers and thunderstorms overnight, however this activity will not be widespread. Temperatures will still be above average this weekend with highs in the 90s. A few lingering rain chances will continue this weekend, but much of the weekend will be dry. The cold front will move through the area early next week giving us some much cooler temperatures. High will be back down in the upper 70s and lower 80s to start off next week.
