South Shore Foundation & Donated DINA Sites Online With New Look and New Features

FLIPPIN, Ark. – The South Shore Foundation has a new, redesigned Web site online at www.southshore.com, announced Steven G. Sanders Jr., vice president and plant manager of NATCO, the foundation’s parent company. “Our foundation’s Web site now displays more and larger photos of our scenic environment, which is so important to our lifestyle, and it is updated with new information and new features,” Sanders added.

The South Shore Foundation’s Web site is an electronic community with the Bull Shoals Lake region as its unifying feature. NATCO participates with a number of Arkansas cities in DINA - the Development Information Network of Arkansas - based at the Institute for Economic Advancement of UALR. “We donate more than a dozen community Web sites so there is information online about their population, work force, city services, and lands available for industrial development,” Sanders said.

The communities included as DINA pages on the South Shore Web site are: Bull Shoals, Calico Rock, Cotter, Diamond City, Flippin, Gassville, Lakeview, Lead Hill, Norfork, Omaha, Pyatt, Summit, and Yellville, plus the Lake Norfork area, and the unincorporated town of Midway, home of the Ozark Regional Airport. On the community Web sites, NATCO provides links to their public schools, colleges, chambers of commerce, city government, and industrial information.

An expanded feature is a South Shore Calendar of Events for the region. Each South Shore city’s mayor, county judge, and chamber of commerce official received letters encouraging their organizations to submit items to NATCO for this extensive area calendar.

The South Shore Web site retains its four popular scenic driving tours, each with new photos and printable online route maps. Driving tours are: Bull Shoals Vacation Area Tour, Countryside and Fishing Tour (Cotter to Flippin to Bull Shoals Lake to Yellville), Buffalo National River Park and Crooked Creek Tour, and Branson Loop Tour. Newly featured are the Fred Berry Conservation Education Center at Crooked Creek and the James A. Gaston Visitor Center in the Bull Shoals-White River State Park.

“The driving tours were my father’s idea, and the maps created have been in great demand by area tourists for several years,” said Sanders. “The online maps are more accessible to residents and tourists,” he added.

Another online feature is Local Businesses Online, the yellow pages of NATCO’s phone book, the Ozark Regional Directory. The yellow pages are searchable by business names or categories. “This feature brings businesses of Marion, Boone, and Baxter counties into numerous homes that don’t receive the printed telephone directory,” Sanders explains.

As a charitable organization, South Shore Foundation annually funds scholarship programs for area students to attend Arkansas colleges and universities and makes grants to nonprofit organizations for educational advancement, environmental preservation, and economic development projects, including youth and adult leadership training in Marion County. For more information or to request a grant application, call South Shore Foundation at 1-800-775-6682 or visit the South Shore Foundation pages of the Web site.
