shell knob: 7 STEPS TO INSTALLING SEPTIC SYSTEMS - 04/04/07 04:05 AM
In times past, persons wanting to build a summer cottage on Table Rock Lake, would sink a 50 gallon oil drum in a hole in the ground, and call that their septic system.  This obviously turned into a problem as leaching from the barrel could contaminate their well water, or drain into the lake.  That has all changed.  As a Shell Knob Realtor, I'm happy to report that the Stone County Health Department requires more now.
A site evaluation is required in Stone County for every septic system needed,  This evaluation must be done by … (2 comments)

Branson Area Appreciation Time 
Platters Review     
Springtime heralds the arrival of new shows in Branson, Missouri.  For Shell Knob and Table Rock Lake residents, that means discounted ticket prices.  Discounted prices are called Area Appreciation shows and are offered to locals to make up for residents experiencing additional traffic and congestion during the height of tourist season, which I, as a realtor in Shell Knob appreciate. 
The window of opportunity to see shows at reduced prices is short, usually less than a week, but various offerings are spread out for most of the month of March.    It is a little like … (0 comments)

Table Rock at Shell Knob, Missouri Table Rock Lake is like none I've ever known.  Lake levels flucuate,  go up and down as if  we had an ocean tide, except they don't do it twice daily.    From a distance, going by boat, the shoreline  of this clean clear water ,looks sandy, but the only sandy beaches are where the sand has been imported for one specific location.  What appears to be sand from a distance, is really small rocks.  This is  a lake where you need swim shoes to protect  toes because instead of sand, there is rock and stone.  Therefore the … (0 comments)

 Time to get the fishing tackle out the fish are calling.
March 1st kicked off the Trout Fishing season.  And in this neck of the woods, that almost qualifies as a national holiday.  Cassville, Missouri, just west of Shell Knob declares a school holiday on the first.  That is so that all the natives and visitors can stand knee deep in freezing waters at the Roaring River State Park  to fish when the  hatchery opens for the first time of the season in hopes of getting a record making trout.
March is also the beginning of fishing on Table … (0 comments)
