Haven of the Ozarks “Oranssi” kitten

This week Haven of the Ozarks is introducing you to PETS of the week instead of pet of the week!  We currently have a wonderful selection of beautiful, friendly adult cats and kittens (pictured is 13 week old male Oranssi).  We have every size, age, and color you can imagine and all would love to find forever homes.  They are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, have been treated for fleas, and are FIV/leukemia negative.  There are many more cats who are in need of rescue, and we can only bring in more to the sanctuary when we make room through adoption.  Even though we’re a no kill facility, each adoption is another life saved, so come find your new best friend at the Haven!  We’re open 9-4 each day of the week.

River Bassin’ Tournament Sept. 10, 2017 written by Tom Koob

River Bassin’ Tournament

written by Tom Koob

The Shell Knob Chamber of Commerce will be hosting a River Bassin’ Tournament on September 10, 2017. The River Bassin’ Tournament Trail sponsors fishing tournaments throughout the United States. These events are for kayak and canoe anglers who want to fish for bass on “wild waters”. The series uses a unique format in which anglers choose the water they want to fish within a 60 mile radius of the host location. When an entrant catches a bass, a photo of the fish is taken on a measuring board. The photo is uploaded to a live leaderboard where contestants and spectators can watch the tourney progress in real time.

River Bassin’ was founded by Drew Gregory as a way to promote fun, family oriented fishing for anglers who want to enjoy more secluded waters from kayaks and canoes. Each event is open to anglers of any skill level. Teams and families are welcome to enter and attend the event activities. Tournament day is a fun-filled affair with games, food and prizes.

Drew Gregory says about this exciting series,

“I got into kayak fishing to be able to catch fish in less pressured wild places, such as rivers or creeks, that my boat couldn’t get to. Large reservoirs and lakes already have plenty of competitive series, so I wanted to give kayak anglers a chance to have fun competing in the locations where the kayak really excels.”

The event in Shell Knob will be a Regional Tournament and allow entrants to fish the many fine area rivers and streams and even some portions of Table Rock Lake. Information about River Bassin’ and how to register can be found at riverbassintrail.com or on Facebook or by calling 724-989-1630. Drew Gregory’s Hooked on Wild Waters videos can be viewed on YouTube. The Shell Knob Chamber of Commerce can be contacted at shellknob.com or 417-858-3300.

Fall and cooler weather will be here soon. It will be a beautiful time of year to enjoy the Ozarks up close. The River Bassin’ Tournament will provide an excellent chance to experience nature whether as a participant or spectator.

Local Woodcarver Offers Weekend Sales in front of the Table Rock Auto Clinic

If  over the weekend, you  have been puzzled by the tent in front of Table Rock Auto Clinic, stop and say, “Hi”to one of our local artists.  Mike Brown has a studio just north of town and he won many awards for his  beautiful work.  He decided instead of traveling and setting up in various craft shows he would let local people see his work in mantels, bowls, wall decor, and personalized wood plaques. The samples that he is showing here are just a few of the many he has completed. If you have an idea for something special call Mike at 630-621-0042.  Double click on the picture to see the detail that he has captured in wood.

The African Children’s Choir

The African Children’s Choir is composed of African children, aged 7 to 10 years old. Many have lost one or both parents through the devastation of war, famine and disease. They represent all the children of a continent and they demonstrate the potential of African children to become strong leaders for a better future in their land.

What is the purpose of their tour?

The primary goal of the Choir is to raise awareness of the need of destitute and orphaned children in Africa and to raise funds for continued development and support of the African Children’s Choir Programs. The Choir’s international educational endeavor provides unique training for the children. Once Choir members have completed a concert tour, they will return to their homelands with the tools necessary for bettering their future.
