Laura Didier, from Sacramento, CA, has been performing steadily with the Jim Martinez Trio since early 2007. Didier has performed at major Jazz festivals in California, Idaho, and Canada including the famed Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival. Didier spent the past 20 years supporting the military career of her husband, a Lt Col and fighter pilot in the USAF. In August of 2011, they celebrated his retirement and returned to their home state with their three sons.

A classically-trained pianist also based in Sacramento, CA, Jim Martinez has performed or recorded with notables like Lionel Hampton, the Stan Kenton Band, the Nelson Riddle Orchestra, Christian McBride, Benny Golson, Roy Hargrove, and Ed Thigpen, who was the first drummer with the Oscar Peterson Trio. Martinez has worked as pianist and musical director for Joan Rivers and Bob Newhart, and he was recently named to the International Artist Roster of Steinway & Sons.

Martinez and Didier have presented their show nationally from retirement communities to performing art centers. Their tribute is the only one endorsed by Ms. Day. Jim and Laura have also been the only artists chosen to entertain at her Carmel, CA hotel, The Cypress Inn, for her annual birthday celebration.

This special Branson appearance at the 1940’s-style supper club will include stories, highlights and colorful images from Ms. Day’s career. Didier and the Jim Martinez Trio will also perform many of Doris Day’s popular hits spanning five decades, including “Sentimental Journey”, “Secret Love” and “Que Sera Sera (Whatever Will Be, Will Be”).

Recently, Ms. Day had this to say: “Jim, thanks for the tribute” and “For Laura, a beautiful lady and a wonderful singer!”

COSIFE Hosts “Prelude to EntreLeadership”  As Pre-Event To Convo Featuring Mr. Dave Ramsey

College of the Ozarks Students in Free Enterprise (COSIFE) will host “Prelude to EntreLeadership,” a panel discussion on entrepreneurship and servant leadership featuring Branson/Hollister Community Bank President of Arvest Greg Baker, Regional Frito Lay Zone Sales Leader Ken Jodock, founder/CEO of Kerusso, Inc., Vic Kennett, and Executive Director of Christian Healthcare Ministries Reverend Howard Russell. Terry Bowen, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Kerusso, will serve as the panel moderator.

COSIFE will welcome SIFE teams from Crowder College, Ozarks Technical Community College, Evangel University and Southwest Baptist University to attend “Prelude to EntreLeadership,” which will take place on Tuesday, Oct. 4 from 3-4:15 p.m. in The Keeter Center’s Royal Oak Forum. The public also is invited to attend this free event; tickets are not required.

“Prelude to EntreLeadership” will serve as a pre-event to the October 4, Community Convocation “EntreLeadership” featuring Christian financial advisor/author Mr. Dave Ramsey. COSIFE has taken a leadership role in promoting financial stewardship and leadership education.

“COSIFE is providing financial literacy to students to help them obtain the knowledge and skills to make informed decisions regarding money matters,” said COSIFE Advisor Rachel Mullinax.

Beginning last year, the COSIFE helped launch a financial stewardship course for College of the Ozarks students. Mr. Ramsey designed the college curriculum and C of O Assistant Professor of Criminal Justice David Vogt and his wife Abbey teach the course on campus. Through the generosity and support of Christian Healthcare Ministries, a total of 250 C of O students will have taken this Dave Ramsey college curriculum course by the semester’s end.

“The Vogts and COSIFE are dedicated to providing these courses because students today have a real hunger for financial education,” said Mullinax.

For more information on “Prelude to EntreLeadership,” please contact COSIFE at (417) 690-2291.

Here at Tyler Nanny Services our objective is to provide you with excellent service in the process of locating the perfect nanny or sitter for whatever your family’s needs are. Tyler Nanny Services is delighted to assist you with all of your childcare needs, whether it be for an evening out or a full-time nanny in your home or hotel.

As founder of Tyler Nanny Services, I am pleased to match families with dedicated, responsible, and reliable nannies and professional babysitters. My primary concern is the physical and emotional well being of a child. We also desire to build a trusting relationship between the family and the nanny.

Tyler Nanny Services was established in order to provide a first class service. Having been a nanny for several years, I personally encountered the lack of screening performed by other nanny agencies. These agencies, which were highly recommended, failed to efficiently perform even the most basic task to be expected from a nanny agency. I was surprised to find that no background checks were performed. Even more concerning was the fact that my references where not verified. Throughout this process, I realized that there was a need for a great quality agency. Understanding this need, I decided to use my previous experiences to create such an agency.

In 2006, my vision became a reality. I put my plan in motion and created a nanny service that would effectively and professionally assist families with the most important decision they have to make as parents. I want to ensure my clients that our agency is readily available at anytime.

Your child’s safety and well-being is priceless. Therefore, choosing the right nanny agency is an essential decision for all families. I assure you that Tyler Nanny Services conducts extensive background checks on all childcare candidates. My priority is not only my families needs, but also the well-being of their children.

Tyler Nanny Services continues to grow, yet we strive to maintain the same small business appeal that allows all our clients to have access to our staff on a 24 hour basis. I will never lose the hands on approach and relationships that I have been able to create with my clients. This is what has allowed my company to excel. My personal goal is to ensure that my clients are educated, comfortable, and satisfied throughout the entire process.

I will walk you through the process, answering any questions and offering you my professional insight and encouragement. We strive to ensure that our families are satisfied.

It has been my pleasure introducing you to Tyler Nanny Services and I look forward to hearing from you and your family.

Sincerely,

Kelly Mathis, Founder & Owner Tyler Nanny Services
