Just read this article:http://www.news-leader .com/article/20120704/BUSINESS 04/307040047/Branson-airport-p ayment?odyssey=tab|topnews|tex t|FRONTPAGE

So Branson Airport has only 3 days of operating expenses in the bank, has lost a total of $35 million to date and is expected to lose a total of $18 million this year. It is way past time for a new Executive Director to step in and right this ship before it sinks.

Hell we have a lake why do we need a airport? Just put skis on the airplanes and the Branson Bell can offload the passengers and give them dinner!

Problem solved!

Maybe some type of massive tourist transport between here and Nashville/Memphis . I think the race track was approved. Bring the shows back in like the Thunderbirds . Might get the Drs. that need to drive back and forth to utilize the time saved and offer a car service .

From the looks of things the whole damn City of Branson is going broke, if the ugly looking buildings were pushed down there wouldn't be much left.

“Meh”

You used to be able to go there and see Major Entertainers, now all it is, is a bunch of second stringers. Branson is becoming a thing of the past and in the future will return to a little hole in the wall like it used to be when I was a kid.
