BRANSON WEST, Mo. -- It was touted as one of the Branson area's biggest housing developments in years.  Indian Ridge Resort broke ground in 2006, but construction stopped years ago and now the vacant property is going on the auction block. Nestled in the rolling mountains of Stone County, above Table Rock Lake, 13 condos in various stages of completion were to be dream homes.      The construction loan for one lot -- or half of one condo -- was $440,000, according to court documents, which also indicate more than 20 people had already bought a home, but they never got the chance to move in. Now, a little more than 25 acres with all the structures will be put up for auction with an opening bid of $550,000.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Two new veterans clinics are scheduled to come to the Ozarks, with one of them only a couple months from opening its doors. Springfield veterans are accustomed to the drive to the Veterans Administration clinic in Mt. Vernon for basic health care, and the much longer drive to the VA Hospital in Fayetteville.  So news of a large clinic coming to Springfield is welcome. "We have World War II veterans here at this post who now have to drive the 2 ½ hours, sometimes inclement weather to have things done at Fayetville," said American Legion Post 639 commander Bill Roark.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Crosslines is now taking applications for families in Greene County who need assistance for the holidays.  Families who qualify can receive help with food and toys that they would not otherwise be able to afford. The applicant needs to provide a picture ID and a Social Security number for everyone in their household.  Crosslines is trying to streamline the process this year by requiring just one application for both Thanksgiving and Christmas help.   The coordinator says, because the application office is on the southeast side of the city, and many of the recipients are on the north side, Crosslines wanted to make it one stop for Thanksgiving and Christmas food help and the Toy Store.
