National Mom & Pop Business Day

Locally owned businesses are the backbone of a strong community. According to the 2010 Census, there are almost 30 million small businesses registered in the United States.  At the Lake of the Ozarks, we have many incredible local businesses. These businesses reflect the personality of our area. We are proud to be a locally owned business and we love the community we are in. Shopping locally helps to improve the local economy. When a consumer buys locally, the money they spend benefits the community and helps to support the business owner who is invested not only in their own business, but in the area in which they conduct their business. You will establish a personal connection. When you are working with a locally owned business, you have an opportunity to establish a personal connection with someone invested in the company. Having to call a 1-800 number can be a nightmare for many and the customer service representative may be far removed from the decision-making p

Spring Has Sprung

With the weather we’ve had this week, it may be hard to believe that spring is actually here. But it’s true! Tuesday, March 20th, was the day of the spring equinox. This means that both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres experienced an equal amount of daylight. For those that live in the Northern Hemisphere, this day marks the first day of the spring season. For those that live in the Southern Hemisphere, this marks the first day of fall. O’Donnell Law Center has some information regarding the spring equinox. The Amount of Daylight on Tuesday Equinox means “equal night”. During the equinox, most places on Earth will see an equal day and an equal night. 12 hours of daylight and 12 hours of night. Not every place will see the same amount of daylight. The difference in daylight depends on how the sunlight gets refracted as it enters Earth’s atmosphere at different latitudes. The first day of spring is the only time of year when the sun rises in the east and sets in the west

Get Ready To Spring Forward

Sunday is Daylight Saving Time and our clocks will spring forward by an hour. With less than two weeks left until spring and Daylight Saving Time happening this Sunday, we can look forward to more sunlight and longer days, but we will lose an hour of sleep. With so many questions that surround Daylight Saving Time, here at O’Donnell Law Center , we thought it would be fun to dedicate this week’s blog to this mysterious time change. What is Daylight Saving Time? We call it “daylight saving time” or even “spring forward”. Most people set their clocks forward an hour before they go to bed Saturday night, but Daylight Saving Time takes place at 2:00 am on Sunday, March 11. Luckily, smart devices like cell phones will automatically change the time. However, don’t forget to change manual clocks. Daylight Saving Time is centered around making better use of the day’s light. That way it is brighter earlier in the morning and vice versa in the fall. Where Did Daylight Saving Time
