Ozarks or. Ozark?

Why is it Ozarks Almanac instead of Ozark Almanac?
That's a question I've been asked a few times already, and I can see that this has the potential of turning into as big a controversy as the pronunciation of our state's name (Missourah vs. Missouree).
Here is the logical explanation:
Ozark is a town in the Ozarks, which is a geographical region.
This publication is about the entire region, not just one town, so it's Ozarks Chronicle.--RDH
