Ozark Mountain Bank named in ‘Top 25’

Posted In: City News by BroadcastBranson.com


Ozark Mountain Bank’s holding company, Central Bancompany, was recently named one of the Top 25 Performers of 2008 in an article published in the June, 2009, American Bankers Association Banking Journal.

“We are very pleased that our Holding Company was recognized as one of the ‘Top 25’ performing banking companies in the country,” said Craig Richards, Ozark Mountain Bank President and CEO. “Since 1950, we have built a foundation of people, community, technology and management that has stood the test of time. Furthermore, this is a testament to the dedication and professionalism of our employees.”

To determine the rankings, The American Bankers Association (ABA) studied the performance of domestic publicly held depository institutions with assets over $3 billion as of December 31, 2008. The banks, thrift institutions and bank holding companies were ranked by return on average equity for 2008. The ABA found financial institutions that performed well in the difficult 2008 economic environment were those that excelled at relatively traditional banking activities, such as generating low-cost core deposits, making quality loans and focusing on consistent service quality.
Making this ranking even more significant is the success Central Bancompany achieved in the challenging 2008 banking environment. Nearly 67% of the large public banks and thrifts either qualified for or participated in the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP)1. Central Bancompany and its 13 member banks, including Ozark Mountain Bank, did not require or receive any TARP funds.

Ozark Mountain Bank, with its six locations in Taney & Stone Counties, has approximately $300 million dollars in assets and Central Bancompany is a $9 billion, Missouri-based, bank holding company with 13 full-service banks and more than 175 locations in 66 communities serving consumers and businesses in Missouri, Illinois, Kansas and Oklahoma.

The Vietnam POW/MIAs Memorial Wall of the United States will be dedicated in a ceremony on July 4 at 10 a.m. at the Branson Mall in the Veterans Walk of Fame. The wall’s creator, Leo Voss, will be attending.

Sponsored by Branson’s Vietnam Veterans of America (VVA) Chapter 913, the Vietnam POW/MIAs Memorial Wall of the United States counts those who have never been found from the Vietnam War and the secret wars in Laos.  From Minnesota, Voss built the wall in 2000. A Marine who served in Vietnam, his commitment and dedication to build the wall developed through his experiences as a leader of the Southwest Minnesota POW/MIA Color Guard and through giving speeches, talking about the thousands of Americans left behind at the end of the wars waged in Vietnam and Korea.

In speaking, the numbers “go right over peoples’ heads. When you see the names – that touches peoples’ hearts,” Voss said.

Etched with some 2,560 names, it is a stark reminder of those who have not returned. Some of the names are marked with white, green and/or red stars. White stars mark the POW/MIAs whose remains have been returned – only 17 percent of those listed. Green stars are beside 11 percent of the names – POW/MIAs who might have survived captivity. Red stars, almost 10 percent, denote the soldiers who fought in the secret wars in Laos.

“What better day could we choose to dedicate this wall than the very day we celebrate our Independence? Let us not forget those who may have lost theirs,” said President of VVA Chapter 913 Bill Groninger, who served in the Air Force. “There are significances in all of those names. Each name deserves an accounting. Our group is helping update the list of names on the wall to keep it current.

Groninger said the chapter has also planned a book in memory of those on the wall and will attempt to locate information on all listed. We plan to enlist the assistance of students from Hollister (Mo.) High School with the book project. As the Memorial Wall’s creator, Leo Voss has completed the research on those from his home state of Minnesota. We want to help him with the rest. Another way the public can be involved is by supporting this project. The Branson VVA may be contacted at 417-230-6446.

Circle B Supper Show

Branson, MO   65616

On October 24 – 27, 2010, the Chuckwagons of the West Jamboree will be at Circle B in Branson, Missouri. Top national cowboy music and comedy acts plus special guests will be entertaining at anticipated sold-out shows.
The Horn Family brought Circle B’s brand of cowboy music and chuckwagon-style vittles to Branson 6 years ago, but Circle B has been around for long before that. Circle B Ranch in the Black Hills of South Dakota was founded in 1976. The founders made it a priority to be members of the Chuckwagon Association of the West. Christiana Horn says, “when we took over Circle B, a big part of our identity came from the Chuckwagons of the West. They wrangled us into the group we’ve become.”
The Chuckwagons of the West began over 50 years ago, when Russ Wolfe and several close friends started inviting tourists to their evening cattle roundups and serving them food at the Flying W in Colorado Springs. Invevitably, someone would pull out a guitar and sing old cowboy songs for the guests. Since then, there have been many “chuckwagon” style groups to spring up around the country. A small core of folks loyal to the original cattle drive spirit and the Association’s goal “to provide the highest level of quality and value in family entertainment and food” is still affiliated with the Flying W through the Chuckwagons of the West. http://www.flyingw.com/ChuckwagonsAssociation.aspx
Each year, the Chuckwagons of the West meet for a “jamboree”—a thank-you to loyal fans, and a time to swap stories and advice with other members. The Jamboree is held at a different Chuckwagon each year. October of 2010 will mark the first time it has been held in Branson.

In addition to some of the finest cowboy music and comedy acts in the world performing at Circle B in Branson, there are several surprises in the works. “Branson has a lot of good, cowboy entertainment, so we’ve reached out to some of our cowboy friends. We are blessed to have friends like Dusty Rogers agree to be a part of the event, as well as Johnny Lonestar.” says Kemp Horn
In addition to Circle B in Branson, the other members of the Chuckwagons of the West are: the Bar –J in Jackson, Wyoming, the Bar –D in Durango, Colorado, the Circle B in Rapid City, South Dakota (now operated by Horn relatives, the Lawson Family), the Flying J in Riudoso, New Mexico, and of course, the Flying W in Colorado Springs, Colorado. All are expected to appear at the 2010 Jamboree. “When we get together for a jamboree, it makes me lightheaded to be sharing a stage with so many cowboy music heroes!” says Circle B mandolinist John Fullerton.

Branson, MO, June 5, 2009 – Summer break is finally here and many families will visit the areas premier shopping, dining and entertainment destination – Branson Landing – to shop for new
school clothes, backpacks and all of the necessities that help make the first day of school an enjoyable experience. But, for many local families the thought of preparing their children for that much anticipated day is fought with anxiety and financial crisis. As an on-going support mechanism for the community, the Branson Landing has launched the fourth seasonal school shoe drive campaign “School Shoes for Kids”
in partnership with OnMedia Cable Company and The Mansion Entertainment and Media Center.

“Here at Branson Landing, we’ve been very fortunate to have the local community as well as visiting guests, embrace the various charitable events we’ve scheduled throughout the year. In particular, the “School Shoes for Kids” Campaign continues to be one of our biggest community successes and it is so rewarding to see both the retailers and patrons working together to provide the gift of a new pair of school
shoes to our local children in need,” stated Tammy Scholten, Director of Marketing for Branson Landing.

“Last year, we had six retail shoe stores serving as drop-off locations and we were able to collect over 800 new pairs of shoes…all of which were distributed to children living in Stone and Taney County. This year’s campaign promises to be even bigger with eight locations at Branson Landing participating, with a goal of giving in excess of 1000 pairs of new shoes to area school children,” concluded Scholten.

“As both an educator and parent, I see first hand how a child’s self-image impacts his ability to learn. Educational research has shown that there is a positive relationship between a student’s sense of self-worth and their eagerness to actively participate in the classroom environment. Providing students in need with items such as a new pair of shoes, backpacks and school supplies can make a significant impact on a positive, motivating start to the new school year,” stated Michelle Brenner, Assistant Principal at Branson High School. “It’s wonderful to continue to see how our community bands together to support our children,” added Brenner.

In a continuing effort to share this philanthropic program with the Branson entertainment industry, participating Branson Landing retailers will provide donors with one FREE child’s admission ticket to see PETER PAN, starring Cathy Rigby at the Mansion Theatre. “We were thrilled when Tammy Scholten from the Branson Landing approached us with the opportunity to share in this year’s program,” commented Larry Wilhite, General Manager of the Mansion Theatre. “Community focused campaigns that benefit our youth directly align with the Mansion’s mission statement and overall entertainment philosophy. We believe in supporting the Branson area and are proud to sponsor the program with free tickets to see PETER PAN, a family favorite” concluded Wilhite. Cathy Rigby, the starring celebrity of PETER PAN, shared Wilhite’s enthusiasm for the shoe drive. “I’m overjoyed to be associated with such a wonderful program that believes
in assisting area parents in support of the new school year. Branson has embraced me with open arms and I’m honored to have the opportunity to contribute to the success of this year’s campaign.”

Participation in the “School Shoes for Kids” program is very easy. Shoppers can simply purchase a new pair of shoes for school aged children—now through August 9th and drop them off at any of these Branson Landing business locations:
Bass Pro Shops Famous Footwear
Justice—Just for Girls Journey’s
New Balance – Branson Payless Shoes
Tradehome Shoes Branson Landing Management Office

New shoe donations will be accepted at any of the participating retailers’ drop off bins during normal operating hours now through August 9, 2009. All of the shoes collected during this campaign will be disbursed among two local charities, (Gift of Hope and Love, INC.) during their annual School Readiness Fairs held in August, as well as other assistance programs they provide throughout the year.

BRANSON, Mo. – A new annual event in the heartland of America is coming soon. The Branson Gospel Music Convention will be held July 14-17, 2009 at the Branson Convention Center in Branson, Missouri.
This four day event will celebrate the legacy of Southern Gospel Music and the artists who made it great, while featuring some of the best known and best up and coming artists in the nation.

Performances by The Blackwood Quartet, The Stamps Quartet, The Florida Boys and The Chuck Wagon Gang will anchor this multi-day music festival that is sure to become one of the nation’s premier Southern Gospel concerts. In addition to these pioneers, the concert will also feature some of the best-known artists from today, as well as some great regional artists from all over the country.
Along with this musical lineup, the Branson Gospel Music Convention will also feature more than 150 artist booths that will allow visitors to meet and get to know their Southern Gospel favorites.
