  • Winter, fall to feature traditional Branson events

    I often get questions from folks around town concerning Branson events and activities.
    Sometimes I have the answers, sometimes I don’t. When I don’t, there’s one person I can call who always does. That’s Lynn Berry.
    Lynn is director of communications for the Branson Chamber and Convention and Visitors Bureau. She can always get me the information I need, or at least point me in the right direction.
    Recently, questions about fall foliage, veterans celebrations and Branson Christmas keep coming up. Here’s what I know, thanks to Lynn.

  • 100413-Enjoy-Woods.jpg Dave Woods: 'Marco Polo' show a dazzling history lesson

    I'm a little ashamed at my lack of knowledge of Marco Polo, a 13th-century Italian explorer. But there was more to the new White House Theatre's production than a history lesson. It's a great theatrical experience laced with deep lessons and some lesser-known ancient history tossed in.
