Other smash hits include “If I Said You Had A Beautiful Body,” “Redneck Girl,” “Do You Love As Good As You Look,” “I Need More of You” and “Kids Of The Baby Boom.” The Bellamy Brothers hit holiday album “Tropical Christmas” pairs old standards that have a Bellamy Brothers twist with original compositions such as “Tropical Christmas” and “Old Hippie Christmas.”

Joey and Rory took third place in CMT’s “Duets competition and were immediately signed to Sugar Hill/Vanguard records. Their 2008 debut “The Life of the Song” featured the hit single “Cheater Cheater.” They followed up ion 2010 with “Album Number Two” and “His and Hers” was released in July of this year.

Branson Aquaponics

Posted In: Branson, Branson Area, Business, Press Release by BroadcastBranson.com


Update: Since returning from Jefferson City a lot has happened. The congressional community for the department of Agriculture for the State of Missouri has signed on the act ( http://dl.dropbox.com/u/96341147/MissourI%20General%20Assembly%20Joint%20Committee%20on%20Urban%20Agriculture%20Report.pdf ) and all of them are supportive of our plan and plan to present it to the Governor next week. I started a LinkedIn account and started networking. I have had two angel investors contact me and one investment firm. All have made requests for our business plan. It has now become a first come first serve play. One is from the windy city, one from the big apple and the other is from Jersey. I have made hundreds of contacts with people of power from the White house down. Our supports are Presidents, Candidates, Representatives, Senators, Governors, Dept. of Economics, The USDA, farmers, business owners, entertainers, and moms and dads. No one has stepped up to the plate yet. There is 40% of this up for grabs for 36 million Buy, Grant, or Loan, or a combination of all three. No one has been able to find a reason not to build this.

Branson Aquaponic Gardens and Educational Center will change the world for the better in time. Put people back to work growing the one thing everyone buys. “FOOD”. Lower greenhouse gases, and provide clean energy resources’ and aquaponic supplies. Most of all give people a place to get the most valuable necessity for survival, “KNOWLEDGE”. Do you remember the old saying “Give a man a fish you feed him for a day, teach a man to fish you feed him for a life time”? The best part of this whole thing when you’re asking someone to put up 36 million is location, location.

Branson is #5 in family destinations visitors. 8 million avg. per year. At the height of the season we can expect to see 20,000 people a day, from June to December. Each spends $10.00 on a tour, buys a book or a box of seeds for 20.00 more avg. $30.00 per person. You do the math it is more shocking that way. Then add a class of 20 people 5 times a day for $50.00 more, plus books. That is a $100.00 dollar investment in their family’s health and well being. After taking the class they will need supplies to get growing, canning or cooking. Where is the best place to do that BAGS (Branson Aquaponic Garden School) buy it and have it drop shipped to their door, after they return home. I have not added in the produce or sea food yet. I had one local Chef tell me he uses 500 tilapia fillies a week at the height of season. How many tomatoes do you think a subway uses a day? We got nine of them. Salad bars, Branson is full of them. Folks can just come to the BAGS market and pick it up fresh every day. Missouri also has a jobs Grant for every job created and we plan to put 400 people to work. Handicap workers welcome, we dearly love our vets. LOCATION! LOCATION! We have that and a world redound team of experts to make it happen. First come first served.

Celebrated tribute artist production, “Legends in Concert”, gave back to the Branson community this month. Following the impact of the Leap Day Tornado, Legends in Concert faced a challenging six weeks of renovations and rebuilding. The theater was thankful to be able to reopen so quickly but was even more thankful for the support of the Branson community throughout that very difficult time. Many individuals and business are still facing challenges as a result of the tornado, and thus Legends in Concert has donated $2000 to The Community Foundation of Taney County, specifically for the Branson Area Tornado Relief & Recovery Fund. This fund will provide support to Taney County non-profits and municipalities for the economic and human services assistance needed following the February 29th tornado.

The Branson community showed their resilience and heart following this tragic event, and Legends in Concert is delighted to be able to give back to such a truly wonderful community. Celebrating its 17th season performing here, Legends in Concert is proud to call Branson home. It really is true….”There’s no place like home!”

Show times are 3 & 8 p.m. For more information, call 417-335-STAR or visit www.legendsinconcert.com.

School of the Ozarks volleyball team will play its first home game against Blue Eye on Thursday, September 27, 2012, at 5 p.m. in the Howell W. Keeter Gymnasium on the College of the Ozarks campus.

“I am impressed with our team’s sportsmanship, fighting spirit and the manner in which they represent our school,” said Patriots Head Coach Charlie Warfield. “The future looks bright for our young patriot team!”

In addition to volleyball, School of the Ozarks students compete in track and field, cross country and basketball. The first home game for junior varsity boys and girls basketball is December 6, 2012, at 7:30 p.m. The varsity boys basketball team plays on December 18, 2012, at 6 p.m. and the varsity girls play on January 7, 2012, at 6 p.m. Schedules for track and field and cross country are still pending.

School of the Ozarks, a college preparatory lab school for grades 9-12, provides a unique education by interweaving a biblical worldview, character education and patriotism into rigorous academic curriculum grounded in the Great Books. The School also mirrors College of the Ozarks in that students are not charged tuition, but instead are asked to invest a little sweet equity into their education.

Home games are free of charge. Community members may attend all S of O games. Schedules are available online at www.cofo.edu.

Legacy Youth Institute Begins Saturday, September 22

Branson, MO – September 18, 2012 – The Legacy Youth Institute, a new leadership and mentoring program for high school juniors, will begin this Saturday, September 22 at Shepherd of the Hills. Thirty students from eight Taney and Stone County high schools, as well as students from the home school community, will join together to participate in this six-session program designed to equip young leaders to “shape the culture” of Ozark Mountain Country.

The Legacy Youth Institute was born out of a passion to create a tangible, intentional opportunity for today’s community leaders to pass on our “Ozark Mountain Spirit”— a deep respect for Family, Faith, Friends, Flag, and ensuring a preferred Future—to the next generation. Community leaders and organizations will partner with the Legacy Youth Institute in each session to provide a mentoring experience for student participants.

“It is important to equip and empower our youth to take a leadership role in influencing the future of Ozark Mountain Country,” said Sue Head, Dean of Character Education at College of the Ozarks. “The Legacy Youth Institute will be a powerful experience that will challenge students to see themselves as a vital part of preserving the legacy of our area.”

Area superintendents and high school principals recognize the benefit of this type of student leadership program. “We are blessed in this area to have tremendous leaders who have strong values,” said Chip Arnette, Branson High School Principal. “Any time that our students get the opportunity to interact with these men and women is of great benefit. The Legacy Youth Institute will help empower tomorrow’s leaders to strengthen our community in the future.”

Saturday’s Kick-off Retreat for the Legacy Youth Institute will allow students from all across the area to get to know each other, learn important leadership skills, and hear about the area’s heritage and core value of Faith. Legacy Youth Institute sessions on Family, Friends, Flag, and Future are scheduled monthly, and the program will culminate in March with a Graduation Banquet.

For more information about the Legacy Youth Institute, please contact Ozark Mountain Legacy at (417) 598-1314, or visit www.ozarkmountainlegacy.org.
