What is a champion and what role does a champion play?

Reeds Spring, MO – April 9, 2013 – The EarthWise Recycling Center, a community-supported non-profit organization located on the Reeds Spring High School campus, will celebrate Earth Day on Saturday, April 20 by expanding their standard recycling services to include electronic waste and rechargeable battery disposal, as well as glass recycling.

EarthWise—which was started last fall by the Ozark Mountain Legacy Catalyst team in Stone County—is a single-stream recycling facility, which means that all common recyclables—mixed paper, magazines and phone books, steel/tin/aluminum cans, and plastics #1-7—can be co-mingled in one container. Conveniently, recyclers do not have to sort these items prior to donation. Donated cardboard and paperboard (like cereal boxes) are baled separately and sold to help fund the operation. EarthWise is open every Saturday from 8:00 a.m. until noon.

“Over the past six months, EarthWise has diverted over two tons of recyclable material from our landfill – and that is only being open on Saturday mornings,” said Sue Noel, Legacy Catalyst Team member. “The community has definitely shown its enthusiasm for recycling! We are growing fast and are thrilled that we are able to expand our collection services starting on Earth Day.”

Starting April 20, EarthWise will begin accepting the following recyclable items: electronic waste such as TVs, cell phones, iPods, tape players, radios, computers, copy machines, digital cameras, etc.; media items such as DVDs, CDs, VHS, and cassette tapes; rechargeable batteries (lead-acid batteries not accepted); glass used as food or beverage containers (please rinse). These items must be sorted separately, as they are not accepted in single-stream recycling. Donations are appreciated for handling and recycling rechargeable batteries and electronic waste.

In celebration of Earth Day, all Stone County residents are invited to visit EarthWise on April 20 from 8:00 a.m. until noon and are encouraged to bring their recyclable items. EarthWise volunteers will be on hand to give tours of the facility, and local businesses and student groups will have booths set up for visitors to enjoy.

“Earth Day is a great reminder of the importance of taking care of our planet, and recycling is a simple way that each person can make a difference in our community,” said Korina Branson, Legacy Catalyst Team member. “We hope that this Earth Day, Stone County businesses, schools, city / county offices, not-for-profit organizations, and residents will bring their unwanted electronic or media waste, and other recyclables, to EarthWise Recycling Center. It’s a win-win for the community.”

EarthWise would like to thank their generous sponsors: Brokate Janitorial, GreenStick, Greenway Recycling, Republic Services, Reeds Spring High School, and Silver Dollar City. Please contact Sue Noel at 338-8108 for sponsorship opportunities or exhibitor space at the Earth Day celebration on April 20, or for more information on how to get involved with EarthWise Recycling Center.

Major Prayer Event Scheduled for Branson

Posted In: City News by BroadcastBranson.com


Ozark Mountain Prayer Breakfast

BRANSON, MO, April 7, 2013 — What was formerly the Branson Mayors Prayer Breakfast has a new name and a new location. The annual regional prayer event will be held Thursday, May 2, 2013 beginning promptly at 6:45 a.m. and ending promptly at 8:30 a.m.

After prayerful consideration, event members of the Branson Christian Business Men’s Committee (Branson CBMC) decided to change the name from Branson Mayors Prayer Breakfast to OZARK MOUNTAIN PRAYER BREAKFAST ™.

“We appreciate the mayors who have joined us in this event over the past 12 years, especially Branson Mayor Raeanne Presley who lent her support since she was elected,” stated Bill Budnick, President of Branson CBMC. “However, because we have a new location and the opportunity to reach more people, we chose to rename the event to reflect our desire to be more inclusive.

In the past six to seven hundred business professionals, minister leaders, church members and community supporters have attended, according to Budnick.

The new location is the Branson Convention Center in Downtown Branson. As in the past, seating is on a first-come, first-served basis, according to advanced ticket sales.

Because of the underwriting of area businesses, Branson CBMC has been able to keep ticket prices comparable to previous years. Major area underwriters include: Cox Medical Center Branson, Silver Dollar City, Lilley’s Landing Resort and Marina, and Heim, Young & Associates, Friends of Jerry Lilley (in memoriam.) Individual advanced tickets are still $25 and $27.50 at the door (as available) and tables of eight may be sponsored for $185.00.

The breakfast event includes a hot and hearty breakfast, inspirational songs, prayers led by local pastors and ministry leaders, the presentation of the Kingdom Builder Award, and the keynote address. This year, the keynote address will be given by Emeal (E.Z.) Zwayne, Vice-President of Living Waters, a ministry of Kirk Cameron and Ray Comfort.
Living Waters developed The Way of the Master, a training program to help prepare Christians to confidently share the gospel even in the most adverse circumstances. This ministry also developed 180, an award winning movie that gives another perspective on abortion. According to Ray Comfort, President of Living Waters, “more often than not, those who watch it do a complete 180.”

Set against the backdrop of Hilter’s slaughter of the Jewish people, Comfort engages especially young men and women on the streets and asks them a series of questions that often “brings them to another revelation about their opinions concerning abortion and their extra-biblical beliefs concerning God and his son Jesus Christ.,” said Comfort.
Complimentary copies of the 180 movie will be given to each person in attendance at the Ozark Mountain Prayer Breakfast ™.
According to Budnick, this year there will be a special emphasis on youth. Branson CBMC is encouraging all area youth groups to prayerfully consider bringing their members to the event.

“We have businesses in the community such as Branson Dental Center and Lilley’s Landing Resort and Marina that have generously sponsored tables for C of O nursing students,” said Budnick. “We’d like to see that opportunity extended to high school students as well.”

Budnick says he believes it is important for young people to see members of the business community who are committed to openly expressing their faith in Christ.
“Our goal remains the same: to glorify our Heavenly Father and his son, Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, for an hour and forty-five minutes, and to join our voices with those around the nation in prayer for our regions, states, country, our elected officials and those who bravely serve in our nation’s military,” said Budnick.
Tickets are available by sending checks to Branson CMBC, P.O. Box 1246, Branson, MO. A downloadable ticket order form is available at www.ozarkmountainprayerbreakfast.com. Questions may be directed to Carolyn at 417-334-6308.

Ozark Mountain Prayer Breakfast ™ is held in celebration of the National Day of Prayer.

As a news anchor and popular radio talk show host, Mrs. Faulkner has earned six Emmy Awards for journalism, a lifetime achievement award from the state of Kansas, and degrees in mass communications and media. Raised on Army bases in the U.S. and Germany and after many years as a journalist, she has learned a key to accomplishment is accepting that change is inevitable and necessary.

After reporting and anchoring for the nationally syndicated newsmagazine “A Current Affair,” Mrs. Faulkner could be seen on CNN “Headline News” and as a fill-in host on the “Nancy Grace Show.” She also made some 50 guest appearances as a correspondent on MSNBC, COURT TV, CNBC and CNN in 2005.
