The TRI- COUNTY YMCA of the Ozarks presents the first of what will become an annual event: The YMCA 5K Run/Walk “JINGLE JOG 2015”. This exciting event will take place on SATURDAY, DECEMBER THE 19th with the start and finish of the race to be at the YMCA PARKING LOT LOCATED AT 950 Airport Road in Osage Beach, MO. 65065. The participants and spectators will be able to stay warm and cozy before and after the event in the lobby of the YMCA. This event will benefit the kids at the YMCA and the participants will be able to burn off some of those “holiday calories” a little early. Registration for the event will start at 8AM at the Y and the race will begin at 9AM. Early bird registration will be until December the 11th for $20.00. Registration the day of the race on the 19th will be $25.00. You can pick up registration forms at the YMCA. The participants will be divided into age divisions and the overall 5K male and female winners will receive a FREE CHRISTMAS HAM. The number of entries in each class will determine how many hams will be given out. For those of you who want to participate but don’t want to do an entire 5K, there will be a 2 mile walk; however that will be for fun and no prizes awarded. AFTER THE RACE THE FUN BEGINS; Santa will be present to take photos with the kids and there will be a Hot Cocoa bar, music and games for the kids. You will definitely want to bring the kids to this fun event.
Osage Beach, MO – On September 26 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. the Osage Beach Police Departmentand the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will give the public its tenth opportunity in five years to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs. Bring your pills for disposal to the Osage Beach Police Department at 1000 City Parkway, Osage Beach (We cannot accept liquids or needles or sharps, only pills or patches.) The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.
Last September, Americans turned in 309 tons (over 617,000 pounds) of prescription drugs at nearly 5,500 sites operated by the DEA and more than 4,000 of its state and local law enforcement partners. When those results are combined with what was collected in its eight previous Take Back events, DEA and its partners have taken in over 4.8 million pounds—more than 2,400 tons—of pills.
This initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs. Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet. In addition, Americans are now advised that their usual methods for disposing of unused medicines—flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash—both pose potential safety and health hazards.
For more information about the disposal of prescription drugs or about the September 26 Take Back Day event, go to the DEA Office of Diversion Control site.
ORLANDO, Fla. (September 10, 2015) – The Supra Boats Pro Wakeboard Tour is propelling its way into the New Year growing the series from four stops last season, to five stops in 2016, it was announced today by Rick Tinker, president of Skier’s Choice, manufacturer of Supra Boats. Pushing the boundaries with innovative products, the 23-year track record of the Pro Wakeboard Tour extends to 2016 serving up star-studded performances, all-new tricks, intense competition, more viewing options, sponsors and greater sport exposure.
“The 2015 Supra Boats Pro Wakeboard Tour was an extreme success with Bonnier’s Events team,” said Tinker. “The audience, athletes and sponsorship throughout the tour gave us an overwhelming positive response to the product and competition that was on the 2015 calendar. In 2016, we are adding an additional stop and are committed to seeing this historic event grow in the future.”
The 2015 season was a year of many firsts, including the first-ever wake-to-wake 1080 landed in a contest by Supra Boats Team rider, Cory Teunissen. Teunissen, along with teammates young-gun Daniel Powers and veteran Austin Hair, are expected to return in 2016, putting their bodies on the line to edge out reigning champion, Harley Clifford.
“We are excited to announce the expanded partnership with the team at Supra Boats and Skier’s Choice to further this iconic wakeboarding series,” said Terry Dorner, vice president of Bonnier Corp.’s Events & Entertainment Group. “Innovative formats, bigger purses and larger-than-life jumbotrons allowed it to grow outside of its means. We will see many of the same things for the near year and this tour’s events involving Supra not only pioneered ground-breaking ways to run the series, it showed the passion for the sport is bigger than ever before.”
Through shared media properties owned by WAKEBOARDING, the 2015 tour was the most widely viewed in history.
The Supra SE550 is the official tow boat for the elite tour because of its clean, consistent and massive wakes. The Supra Boats’ wakes are expected to push pros to new levels while preserving strict handling and a balanced ride for the driver and judges in the boat. The 2016 Supra Boats are powered with the high-torque 6.2L ROUSHCHARGED Raptor Engine by Indmar.
