“The men and women who served this country in our military are due our commendation and our respect,” states Watson. “We should cherish and honor the memory of those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom and our way of life. I am humbled to be asked to participate in this tribute.”

Watson will speak on November 4th at 10:00 am CST (1000 hrs) followed by the unveiling of The Traveling Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall and a photo opportunity at the Welk Theatre.

About Muse Watson:
Equally comfortable on the theater stage as he is in front of the camera, Muse Watson first gained notice with several strong performances on stage that helped pave the way for a feature film and television career. His diverse roles in Sommersby, Something to Talk About, Assassins, & Rosewood brought him mainstream recognition but it was the villainous “Ben Willis” in the trendy thriller I Know What You Did Last Summer films and From Dusk Till Dawn 2 that propelled him in the limelight as a chameleonic actor. He made equally impressionable appearances in Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me and Sundance Film-Festival award-winner Songcatcher, challenging himself by playing unique characters.

Transitioning to the small screen, Watson delivered stellar performances in several made-for-television movies including Blind Vengeance and Justice in a Small Town; and the television series, American Gothic, The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles, Matlock, The Lazarus Man, JAG, Walker Texas Ranger, Ghost Whisperer, CSI, and The Mentalist. Going on to land his most notorious TV roles as “Mike Franks” in the award winning drama NCIS and “Charles Westmoreland” in the Emmy & Golden Globes nominated & People’s Choice Awards – winner Prison Break. He recently finished filming The Lamp starring Jason London and a feature film with Samuel L. Jackson and Owen Wilson. A Christmas Snow the movie released on dvd can be found in stores everywhere. The Lamp and A Christmas Snow are both Tracy J Trost movies.

College of the Ozarks Features “Can we be good with out God?” with Dr Paul Chamberlain
By: Matt Farmer

Dr. Paul Chamberlain will present “Can We Be Good Without God” at College of the Ozarks on November 7, at 7 p.m., in Jones Auditorium.

Chamberlain serves as Associate Professor of Apologetics and Philosophy at Trinity Western University and Director of Institute of Christian Apologetics. He has published five books concerning ethics, morality and the Christian faith, including Why People Don’t Believe: Confronting Seven Challenges to Christian Faith and Can We Be Good without God?: A Conversation about Truth, Morality, Culture and a Few Other Things that Matter.

Chamberlain’s book, Can We Be Good without God?, has been used as one of the texts for the College of the Ozarks’ Christian world-view classes.

“Anyone who believes that objective moral good exists must provide some explanation for its existence,” says Professor of Philosophy and Religion Dr. Mark Rapinchuk, “In Can We Be Good without God?, Paul Chamberlain demonstrates that explanations that ignore or eliminate God simply do not work. I am excited that Dr. Chamberlain will be here to discuss this important topic and expect our students to be encouraged and challenged by his presentation.”

Students will receive priority seating for the event; remaining seats will be available to the public free of charge. For more information, please contact Christian Ministries at 417-690-3446.

236th Marine Corps Birthday Ball

Posted In: Branson, Branson Area, Events, Veterans by BroadcastBranson.com



Guest Speaker – Dale Dye

236th Marine Corps Birthday Ball

What: 236th Annual Marine Corps Birthday Ball
When: November 10, 2011
Location: Branson Convention Center (Hilton)
Cost: $60 per person
Attire: Semi-formal
Speaker: Dale A. Dye
For reservations or information call: (800) 569-3493

After joining the Marine Corps at 18, Dale Dye served in Vietnam in 1965 and 1967 through 1970 surviving 31 major combat operations. He emerged from Southeast Asia highly decorated including three Purple Hearts for wounds suffered in combat. He spent 13 years as an enlisted Marine, rising to the rank of Master Sergeant before he was chosen to attend Officer Candidate School. Appointed a Warrant Officer in 1976, he later converted his commission and was a Captain when he was sent to Beirut with the Multinational Peacekeeping Force in 1982-83. He served in a variety of assignments around the world and along the way managed to graduate with a B.A. in English from the University of Maryland.

He worked for a year at “Soldier of Fortune” Magazine when he finally decided to retire from the Marine Corps in 1984. He spent time in Central America, reporting and training troops in guerrilla warfare techniques in both El Salvador and Nicaragua before leaving the magazine in 1985 and heading for Hollywood.

Starting with the Academy Award-winning Platoon, Dye has matched his mission with Hollywood’s need to look smart. His specialty is training. By putting actors through a week or more of military-like drills—as he did for Steven Spielberg’s Saving Private Ryan and Tom Hanks’s Band of Brothers, and most recently in the new HBO maxi-series The Pacific, –he makes them convincing soldiers and better actors. He has worked on more than fifty movies and television shows. He’s also a well-known actor, and can be seen in TNT’s Falling Skies.

He is also an accomplished author, having written six novels including the best-selling novelization of Platoon. His latest book is the gripping Peleliu File, companion to his earlier Laos File. He and his wife Julia also co-wrote the graphic novel Code Word: Geronimo.

Lt. Col. Dave Grossman, USA (Ret.), best-selling author of ‘On Killing’ and ‘On Combat,’ said “Capt. Dale Dye has done more than any other man alive to influence the way that America (and the rest of the world) views the U.S. military.”

Branson, MO…The topic for the November seminar hosted by Connell Insurance is a timely one for businesses this year: Disaster Preparedness. The seminar, co-sponsored by CoxHealth and one of three held each year by Connell Insurance, is slated for the morning of November 18th at the Branson Convention Center.

Ryan Nicholls, Emergency Management Director for the Springfield-Greene County Office of Emergency Management, will be discussing disaster preparedness for businesses in this area. His presentation will center on his extensive training in this field and the lessons learned from his experience with the Joplin tornado and Hurricane Katrina response teams. Ryan holds a Master’s Degree in Fire & Emergency Management, as well as advanced training through the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

According to Connell president Tim Connell: “Considering the horrific events of this past year ranging from floods to the Joplin tornado, we felt that a seminar on business preparedness for disasters was particularly timely. Ryan offers a wealth of experience to share with our clients and friends in this area.”

The second speaker of the morning is Noah Alldredge, founder and president of BigTime Results, who will discuss the various methods employers can address for wellness in the workplace. Noah’s presentation identifies activities that employers are currently using to reduce absenteeism, lower escalating health-related expenses in the workplace, improve employee morale, and motivate employees to live healthier lifestyles.

Connell’s Linda Welter, who manages the Life & Health Department, commented, “As a company, we were so impressed with Noah’s program that we’ve already implemented it for the entire staff at Connell Insurance. He has a message, backed up by results data, that every business owner and manager should hear.”
