I will think positive because if the Branson Airport does not make it my business and many others are in deep trouble. The only reason tourism is not way down this year is because of the airport. The data from the CVB shows the numbers are way up in the cities with airlines to Branson. At the same time the cities within 300 miles are way down. Thank God for the Branson Airport and the additional people they have brought to my business. We are all looking forward to Southwest saving all of us not just the airport!
