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.

Hollister, MO…As most employers battle increasing health insurance costs for their employees, one Branson organization is enjoying a substantial reduction in the costs for these benefits. Connell Insurance may sell health insurance coverages, but they also purchase such coverages like any other employer – and the costs were increasing.

In 2008, Connell Insurance recognized that a 26% increase in employee health care costs, up from 7% the previous year, was probably not going to decrease on its own. “We realized that we needed to take a proactive rather than a reactive approach,” stated Connell president, Tim Connell, “to control renewal increases and help our employees realize a healthy lifestyle at the same time.”

In 2010, Connell was paying an annual premium over $150,000, but in 2012 the premium has been lowered to just over $101,000. The drastic reduction in health care costs is partially because Connell increased the deductible from $3500 to $10,000 and incorporated a Health Reimbursement Account (HRA). This type of account reduces the monthly premium by increasing the employee deductible levels. If the employee exceeds the deductible amount, then the employer and employee share in the residual costs. The combination results in savings for the employer while funding the HRA to bridge the gap between the higher deductible and the expenditure amount for employee’s insurance coverage.

Additionally, although Connell Insurance is not large enough to warrant a Wellness Officer, their Wellness Team combines a wellness program with measurement efforts that effectively gauge the program’s merit. Connell’s wellness program offers opportunities to help improve employee health, reduce absenteeism, and improve morale and productivity while reducing health care costs.

Connell’s wellness program, which began in 2008, included a Step Game in addition to Health Risk Assessments and Lunch & Learns. The next year a “Couch to 5K” training program was added, with the first 5K Run/Walk a few months later. Connell has also adopted a smoke-free workplace to further encourage better health. In 2012, the wellness program was ramped up with the hiring of BigTime Results in Springfield to handle the assessments, perform fitness tests, handle one-on-one consultations, and offer yoga and fitness classes each week.

According to the Wellness Council of America (WELCOA), it generally takes about three years to see a return of typically $2-$3 saved for every $1 invested in a wellness program. That definitely is the case for Connell because in 2011, costs were improved to a mere 6% increase, down from a 23% increase the previous year, and in 2012, the overall health care costs actually decreased by 1%.

While Connell recognizes that the wellness program is not the sole reason for the reduction in health costs, they are confident that it plays a significant role, coupled with a critical review of health coverages and optional factors such as the HRA.

Connell Insurance, based in Hollister, MO, is one of the largest insurance agencies serving southwestern Missouri. An independent insurance agency, Connell specializes in both commercial and personal lines of insurance, representing numerous insurance companies.

BRANSON, Mo. – Joel Manby, President and Chief Executive Officer of Herschend Family Entertainment, will provide the keynote address at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, June 19, at the Branson Business Expo Breakfast at the Chateau on the Lake Resort, Spa & Convention Center. Doors open at 8 a.m.
This is a new event to open the Branson Area Business Expo presented by the Branson/Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce and Convention & Visitors Bureau.
