Good News Shepherd of the Hills will be back!

Good News Shepherd of the Hills will be back!

I just got the news the other day, that Shepherd has been sold to new investors. And I’m so glad to hear this. It didn’t take them long to see all the great potential that these properties hold. From the zipline, to the car show that is coming in August, to so many things. My family and I always pass by there on the way to church, and it just looked so sad being empty. So I’m glad to see several investors have bought it. For more on this story check out

Why I think the Grand Palace is not open

Why I think the Grand Palace is not open

Well, at this point I’m beginning to scratch my head. As I drive to my office everyday I go by this amazing Giant. I don’t see very much activity, all I see is a website on their sign, that says for more info go here. And I’ve seen several major Holidays go by (July 4th today) and the whole summer is coming to a close and it’s still not open. From starting my own business, and learning a lot from that. I think the new owners got in here, and realized they didn’t have a concept big enough to fit these grand walls. All four of them. I mean think about it, you have a 4000 seat theater, huge backstage area, an aparmtent, and a cascading stairwell. Leasing stores in there is an idea, but it’s just not a strong enough idea. The Grand Palace 2017 is probably turning into Grand Palace 2018. As usual we are hoping for the best.

The Homeless of Highway 76 Branson, Mo

The Homeless o Highway 76

There is so much, going on, on Highway 76, you wouldn’t believe that there are Homeless people moving back and forth. As 76 is a place of lights, and stars, and movers. But daily as I drive into Branson, I see them, and I see them working hard. Walking from their jobs, carrying humongous back packs, and breaking there backs to get to their temporary housing. And I feel for them. And I’m glad to know that there are places they can go, and things that can help them. Often I go work out at First Baptist Church, and see them. FBC has a donation program, for the Homeless there. And often help these people of the streets. Between the downtown area, and the start of 76’s beginning, they often walk, as it’s a good area for economical transitionary Housing,

And sometimes it’s over 100 degrees out, as they go from place to place. I think the no panhandeling ordinance has slowed them down a bit, but I still see them around town. With a collection plate or two. Most live in the hotels in town, to make travel easier with out a car. So next time you see one or two, feel free to lend a hand, they could probably use one or two.
