Lions Club Meeting Includes Guests and Dance Discussion

This Monday night the Shell Knob Lions Club met for their dinner meeting the third Monday of each month.  The program included the election of officers for the year and a musical presentation by the Lock family musicians.  The Locks performed several songs and asked if the club would be interested in sponsoring a monthly dance.  This generated a lot of discussion and then the topic was moved to the next officer’s meeting.

The heaviest stringer belonged to Darren Plank and Randy Emerson and weighed 34 pounds. The awards ceremony and banquet took place at the Shell Knob Club south of Shell Knob. Ron Jester, Buddy Bass Tournament Chairman praised the fortitude of the fishermen in the tournament and their sportsmanship. The local Shiners’ Ladies Auxiliary club would like to thank the Shell Knob community for their hospitality to the 60 Shiners’ wives that supported their husbands’ effort in this major fund raiser.

Ron Jester, tournament chairman is awarding Larry Wilcox and Ron Wedgpeth their check.Saturday morning, 7 a.m. broke with clear skies and choppy waters at Table Rock Lake in Shell Knob, Missouri. Registration and live well checks took place at Campbell Point Marina. But by noon the weather had turned dark and disturbed. This did not stop the 78 Open Buddy Bass Tournament fisherman from fighting winds of 60 miles an hour to finish for the day. There were three waves of storms in the Shell Knob, Missouri area in the two day tournament. Sunday morning was a repeat of Saturday, but by weigh-in time the battle was worth the effort. The total weight of the 500 fish caught for the tournament was 900 pounds.

Table Rock Auto Clinic is a New Member of the Shell Knob Chamber of Commerce


The Shell Knob Chamber of Commerce welcomes as new members Max and Wanda Koerner, owners of Table Rock Auto Clinic. The Koerner’s opened their business in 1996 in Shell Knob and have made many advancements in their automobile service opportunities to the community. Their bumper to bumper service is enhanced by their utilization of the latest diagnostic equipment. Their staff brings the expertise of over 40 years of combined training and experience in the repair and service of vehicles.
If you are in need of a tow, they supply the tow truck service to get to their garage. If you are in need of body work they can service that also. Gary Varner has over 30 years experience as a transmission technician.

Max says, “ TR Auto prides themselves on “transparency” to their customers service needs. Because our diagnostic equipment prints out or shows problems on a computer screen, customers can see exactly what the mechanics are seeing and know exactly what is wrong with their auto and how we are dealing with the problem. We also carry and use BG Products which is important because today’s cars are finely tuned and less tolerant of deposits; BG Products clean and lubricate any/all moving parts in an automobile.”

Max and Gary say, “We do it right the first time.” We welcome new customers with a friendly smile and a nice waiting room.”

Letter of Insight
My husband and I attended a Tea Party in Branson, MO Saturday morning, April 17th. What an honor and a privilege to participate in this exciting and motivating experience. The roadside demonstration was held on Hwy 76 starting before 11am on West Hwy 76 beyond Appletree Mall & Dick Clark’s American Bandstand. The street was lined up on both sides of the highway with many friendly people waving their hands and waving their various signs as cars were driving by bumper to bumper, honking their horns and waving their hands and giving us a “thumbs up” sign. It was also interesting to watch the faces of people in cars who drove by who probably were not too happy to see our smiling happy faces and waving of friendly hands.

One of the fun parts of attending a Tea Party Rally is all the wonderful people you meet. I was especially happy to talk to a couple we stood beside who live in California. They were traveling in their motor home and said they previously stopped at a Tea Party in Oklahoma before traveling to Branson. So when they happened upon our Tea Party they joined us. She asked me if Branson was more Republican and I said yes it was. She told me they have to move out of California because they are sick of having their votes being wasted out there and their leadership is horrible. They are looking for a place to live maybe in MO and liked the Branson area. I offered her my phone number so I could show them around Shell Knob. However, they said they want to rent first and then look for a year to find just the right place they want to call home. This is just an example of the friendly people you can meet. These people are Americans just like us who have insights to share and we must be willing to listen.

The other gratifying and uplifting activity at the Tea Party is that they open with a prayer at the beginning of the speaker’s forum. The co-host told of her daughter’s attendance at a Christian school middle school in Branson where they are taught the constitution. Her daughter and a friend, young teens, came on stage and recited every single President in unison! Now how many people can do that? I’m ashamed to say that I have to include myself.

The event came off well without the intrusion of radical protestors with the goal to infiltrate and give the Tea Party goers a bad name. It must have been a disappointment to the main stream press. We are very unhappy with all the control our government is forcing on all of “we the people” and taking away our freedoms. We must stop this action now before it is too late and fix it from within by removing the progressives of congress. Obama is “amused” by Tea Party goers, Bill Clinton is worried about people like us infighting and creating unrest. Or by exercising our right to assemble and voice our feelings. He fears another domestic terror like the Oklahoma City bombing and Nancy Pelosi calls us “terrorists”. Shame on them for their irresponsibility and lack of understanding that we are Americans TOO! What do you think of a president who is only “Obama is amused…..?” by our efforts to make him listen to someone not on the government payroll.

I hope everyone understands — everyone needs to get involved in the Primary Process so that we do not have a third party rise out of our Tea Party organizations; that would truly be sad.

Join us in the next Tea Party in Branson this summer. I believe you will be as excited and uplifted as we were to be in the American process of the exercising our rights to be citizens.
