By Jay Mejia Special News Correspondent Leaders of a group supporting Black Lives Matter say they plan to swarm the streets outside Dixie Outfitters at 1 p.m. on Saturday. They said their goal is to block customers from entering the business contending the Confederate flags, T-shirts and souvenirs being sold are “racist and hate-filled” and do not belong in a family friendly town. “We plan on shutting down their revenue on that day by closing the roads in the same way Springfield held their protests,” said Faith Pittser, one of the organizers of the demonstration. “It will be a peaceful demonstration. Confederate pride is offensive. If Branson will not listen to us, we will make them listen by dropping their revenue.” “I do not need to contact (Dixie Outfitters owner) Nathan Robb because we will not be on his property,” Pittser added. “We will be on the street, which is public property.” Pittser said organizers of the demonstration had spoken with the Branson Police Department about the planned event. Owner Nathan Robb appeared unfazed on Thursday. “We’ve had our biggest days ever since,” Robb said, referring to last Sunday’s demonstration during which BLM protestors perched on a sidewalk above the store taunting and baiting store supporters in the parking lot below. “I’m just a small business owner,” Robb said. “What we sell is southern heritage. The First Amendment protects our rights of free speech, just like it protects the rights of protesters.” Last Sunday, protestors succeeded in provoking one woman to lose her temper and spew a hate-filled message and reference to the Ku Klux Klan that was captured on video and went viral on social media around the world. BLM protest leaders have been citing the video and publicity about the store as proof Dixie Outfitters must be shut down because it “is filled with hatred and racism and obviously owned by a member of the KKK,” Pittser said, who organized along with Larry Flenoid II of Springfield. Earlier this week, Mayor Edd Akers issued a response to the viral video that the City of Branson does not condone hate speech. The Board of Aldermen, during its regularly scheduled meeting on Tuesday, also heard comments from citizens who said they had concerns about Dixie Outfitters being allowed to operate on the tourist-laden Hwy 76 strip. So far, no other city action has been taken. Confederate stars-and-bars wave alongside the stars and stripes outside Dixie Outfitters. Some revere it for southern heritage; many others revile it for its racist hate message and Black Lives Matter. The fight continues in Branson as the echoes from the Civil War haunt us in 2020.

Commercial St. In historic downtown Branson springs to life at 10 a.m. sharp Monday. Inside you’ll find Jean and Jim Babcock , curators of the Branson Centennial Museum. When you meet the Babcocks, you meet two life-long researchers dedicated to libraries and museums. They can tell you everything about how Branson came to be. Listening to them, you can feel the chug of the first railroad that stopped in 1907, smell the fire five years later in 1912 that swept through and burnt nearly all of the town, hear the music of the hills that stretches back to the original native Indians. “Music has always rang in the hills of Branson,” Jean says.

2 • June 26-27, 2020 LOCAL bransonglobe.com Coronavirus pandemic keeps a Branson jewel at home By David Stoltz, Branson Globe Correspondent While the Coronavirus pandemic has turned everyone’s life upside down, it’s had one benefit for Branson. It’s kept popular comedian Yakov Smirnoff here! Yakov is doing his popular show five days a week at the Caravelle Theater at 3446 West Hwy. 76 in Branson. He’ll be performing here Wednesdays through Sundays through Aug. 9, and then he’ll return again Oct. 2 through Dec. 5. Originally, Yakov had planned only one week of shows in Branson this summer, but the Covid-19 pandemic changed all that. When the pandemic took hold, Yakov and his wife, Olivia, decided to leave Los Angeles for Branson “because it was a lot safer here. So we got here in early March and went through the quarantine and then we said, ‘well, you know, what if the town opens up, let’s just start doing shows.’ So this thing kind of evolved.” Because of the pandemic, Yakov’s 2020 tour dates were “pretty much moved to 2021.” He opened his new show on May 22. Along with the new Branson show dates came the show’s new location in the Caravelle Theater, which also houses the ”Liverpool Legends” show. Yakov had thought of moving the show to “the strip” since the end of last year, and so far he’s satisfied with the result, despite going from an 1,8000-seat theater to 700 seats. His large, smiling face atop the theater greets travelers out front. “Being in the center of town is beneficial, especially when I’m not doing a full year, the marketing budget is not as big. So then for people to know where you are is a little bit harder as opposed to when they’re here and they’re going up and down the strip where stuff is happening,” he said. And being in close proximity to shows such as the Duttons, Hughes Brothers and Jim Stafford also helps. “When you have a big theater Comedian Yakov Smirnoff has returned home to Branson. (Photo courtesy yakov.com) you’re used to big overhead,” he said. ”This pandemic kind of shrunk everything. It’s kind of like a very small family of people (working here) who are saying, ‘Look, this is desperate times, desperate measures, and then you realize you didn’t really need a lot of other stuff. But downsizing makes you go, ‘Wow, this still works. People are still laughing and they’re still emotional and everybody’s okay and we’re doing that without major overhead.” Adjusting to the times we live in, Yakov’s show includes a monologue with him dressed in full medical gear with shield, gloves and mask. “And then I do a press conference like (immunologist) Dr. (Anthony) Fauci,” and the audience becomes the media and asks questions. In another segment, audience members tell jokes and the audience gets to pick the winner, who then becomes the talk show host and Yakov becomes the guest. While Yakov’s theater on Hwy. 248 is now home to the Acrobats of Branson presenting ICircus, plans are one day to convert that land into a retirement community, “Yakov Towers,” including an independent living and assisted living center, a hotel and memory care facility.

bransonglobe.com LOCAL Get an extra bang out of July 4th ‘bangers’ By Mommy’s a Good Cooker Planning a cookout to celebrate Independence Day? Perhaps you’ll throw some brats on the grill. There’s nothing like a yummy German sausage to celebrate American independence, right? Great... glad you agree. I’m now going to give you a British recipe to use up leftover brats: bangers and mash. You’ll love it, I promise. Plump, juicy sausages (the bangers) rest alongside real mashed potatoes (if you use instant potatoes in this recipe, I will sense a disturbance in the force, prompting me to come to your house and soap your windows), then the whole thing is covered in a delicious onion gravy. Let’s talk sausages first, however. Brats are an excellent choice for this recipe because they have great flavor and aren’t too lean. We’ll need drippings from cooking the brats for our gravy. My favorite brats are those made in-house at Harter House: perfectly spiced, and no fillers. Grill your brats for July 4th, but reserve a few uncooked for bangers and mash. Bangers and Mash You need: • • • 6 bratwurst sausages 1/2 Tbsp. olive oil • 1 large onion, halved and finely sliced 2 cloves of garlic, minced • 3 Tbsp. flour • 2 cups of beef stock Cook the brats in the oil until cooked through and nicely browned; set aside and keep warm. Make sure there is at least 2 Tbsp. of drippings/oil left in the pan - if you need more, add a little butter. Add onion and garlic and cook until golden brown. Add flour and mix well - I use a whisk to avoid lumps. Gradually stir in the beef broth. Simmer, stiring occasionally until thickened. Add salt and pepper if needed. Add the brats back to the pan and allow the whole thing to simmer several minutes to blend flavors. Serve with mashed potatoes. It’s traditional to serve peas on the side with this dish. Enjoy!

Escaping Communist Soviet Russia in the 1970s, Yakov has appeared on numerous television programs, performed on “The Tonight Show” with Johnny Carson, and was a regular on the TV show, “Night Court.” He is an accomplished artist whose painting, “America’s Heart,” was displayed as a mural over Ground Zero in New York City following 9/11. Just last year, he earned his doctorate degree in Psychology and Global Leadership from Pepperdine University. Those who have attended Yakov’s show know of his love for his adopted country. “At the end of the show as you know I’m very patriotic and I think it’s become even more valuable now than it was last year, even though there was tension with Nancy Pelosi and the impeachment hearings and all that,” he said. “But this tension is so much higher, so having been an immigrant, a naturalized citizen to defend America for what it is and how disrespect is happening all over the place to our history and things that I came here for are being dismantled and destroyed, I think people feel even more connected to what I’m talking about.” “My advice is ‘Come laugh your Yakov,’ and learn and feel proud to be an American.

It said that two hairstylists working in the salon tested positive for the COVID-19 virus resulting in the exposure of 140 clients to the virus. At the time of the exposure, both the stylists and their clients were wearing masks. A report from the Springfield-Greene County Health Department on June 8 said that the incubation period had passed for those exposed to the virus at the salon. None of the clients serviced by the two stylists had contracted COVID-19. Director of Health Clay Goddard said, “This is exciting news about the value bransonglobe.com of masking to prevent COVID-19.” He also said that the salon also had policies that likely helped prevent the spread of the disease. These include the distancing of salon chairs, staggering appointments, and other measures. Branson’s oldest and most popular attraction, Silver Dollar City, along with other measures, requires the wearing of masks by guests and associates as part of its efforts to protect its guests and team members from the COVID-19 virus. “We believe during these unprecedented times, wearing a mask or face covering shows mutual respect and care for fellow guests and our team members who serve our guests,” said Lisa Rau, the Director PR/Publicity, Silver Dollar City Attractions/Herschend Family Entertainment.

bransonglobe.com STATE By Bill Graham Courtesy of MDC El Dorado Springs, Mo. – The American burying beetle is a large and unusual insect. The parents tend young in an underground cavity, and they feed on carrion such as dead birds. Habitat losses or changes have made them an endangered species. But a cooperative restoration program between the Saint Louis Zoo, the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC), and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) has re-established a population at the Wah’Kon-Tah Prairie and Taberville Prairie conservation areas in St. Clair County. The zoo staff raises American burying beetles and releases them in early summer in a partnership with MDC. The Nature Conservancy of Missouri owns large sections of Wah’Kon-Tah Prairie, which is managed by MDC. The Taberville Prairie Conservation Area is owned by MDC. Both prairies are part of the Upper Osage Grasslands, an MDC priority geography devoted to enhancing native grassland ecology on both public and private land. Releases began in 2012. A pair of male and female beetles are placed in a hole with a dead, pen-raised quail and covered with soil. That mimics the beetle’s natural reproduction cycle where they pair up, then drag some type of small dead bird or mammal to a site. The beetles dig a hole where they stay until young have hatched from eggs. They feed the larvae from the carrion they stashed. Adults later emerge to wander the prairies or woodlands. A release of more zoo-raised burying beetles this year was almost scuttled by precautions against the COVID-19 virus. But Bob Merz, assistant director of the Saint Louis Zoo WildCare Institute, led a small party following safety precautions. They released 77 beetles on June 15 at Taberville Prairie Conservation Area. Concerns about coronavirus have so far cancelled this year’s survey for beetle populations originating from releases in past years. But earlier surveys showed promising results. “I feel that we have given the beetles the best opportunity to thrive as we possibly could have,” Merz said. “We set them up to succeed. Seven years of reintroduction and supplementing with carrion resources that they raise their young on was done in a way where we saw that the species could meet important benchmarks. They survived winters in decent numbers, and we saw evidence that they were finding food and reproducing on their own for all of those years.” The first releases were at surveys. “However, the proof of the pudding for this species is if they survive without our help now. That, only time will tell.” The American burying beetles released at the two prairies are considered a non-essential population by the USFWS under federal enJune 26-27, 2020 • 13 Taberville Prairie release site for endangered American burying beetles For more information about dangered species protocols.

But a 218-mile run to grandma after she was sickened with COVID-19 turned out to be the longest, toughest and most rewarding of his life.

Dozens of workers at the Allied Services Skilled Nursing & Rehab Center applauded as he crossed the finish line. Out of breath but smiling, he pointed to “Nana’s” fourth-floor room, where she peered through the window. A sign hung outside read, “I Love You Corey.” “Nana, you’re a strong person,” Cappelloni said into a cellphone and microphone, as a nurse held up the other end of the line to Andres. “You’re going on 99, and you still have many more miles.” Unable to visit in person out of safety concerns for residents, he promised to give her a long-awaited hug soon. Cappelloni’s “Run for Ruth” has raised more than $24,000 so far for smartphones and tablets to help older adults isolated due to the pandemic communicate with loved ones. It also aimed to raise awareness about residents and caregivers in such facilities, many of which have been hit hard by the coronavirus, and to honor the lives lost, including Cappelloni’s great-uncle Charles Gloman, who died May 11. Andres was diagnosed in early June. She began running a high fever, was too weak to talk some days and had to get supplemental oxygen. Cappelloni, who was calling daily, noticed she was becoming more and more afraid. “She was no longer able to have family, visitors, friends visit her,” he said. “And she became a little depressed, so I knew that I had to do something to try to uplift her spirits.” At first he sent photo books from his travels around the world. Then his girlfriend, Susan Kamenar, had an idea: What if he ran to her? So he set out northward along trails and streets, through forests and residential neighborhoods. Kamenar followed behind in an RV the couple rented to better maintain social distancing while eating and sleeping. Cappelloni had been training for an ultramarathon scheduled for mid-March, but he pulled out because of the pandemic. He ran an ultramarathon in Peru in December, and was still in good shape. bransonglobe.com Man runs 218 miles to virus-stricken ‘Nana’s’ nursing home But even though he’d previously finished races like the more than 150-mile Marathon des Sables in Morocco, he wasn’t sure he could endure the equivalent of seven ultramarathons of 31.2 miles, longer than a standard 26.2-mile marathon, in as many days. He started strong and was posting good daily times, but on day six he hit the wall. Exhausted and hurting, he slowed to a walk. Then came a text message and a huge mental lift: Nana had made a full recovery. “She had some very rough days,” Cappelloni said that day in a video he posted online. “But you know, she fought through them, and that’s what I’m doing today.” Cappelloni said Andres was there when he took his first steps and he often refers to her as his second mother. “Why I decided to do this was to show my grandmother that I’m here for her and that I really care for her, Cappelloni said, “because she has always been there for me from when I was born.” Nursing home workers cheer as Corey Cappelloni completes his seventh ultramarathon in seven days in Scranton, Pa., Friday, June 19, 2020.

bransonglobe.com NATIONAL NEW YORK (AP) — “The Big Bang Theory” actor Mayim Bialik is teaming with DC Entertainment on a project that joins superhero power to the power of science. DC Entertainment announced Thursday that Bialik will collaborate with popular comic writers and illustrators on a story collection that features Batman, Superman, the Flash and others in search of such mysteries such as why polar ice melts and what can be found at the bottom of the sea. “Flash Facts” will come out in February and provide “a helpful bridge between the S.T.E.M.

16 • June 26-27, 2020 SPORTS (AP) Phillie Phanatic, phenomenal. Mr. Met and Mariner Moose, marvelous. Wally the Green Monster, welcome back. Mascots are getting a reprieve from Major League Baseball. A month after being tossed out of stadiums because of health concerns over the coronavirus outbreak, the fuzzy and funny creatures will return as inside-the-parkers. “The fur is back on the field,” exclaimed Dave Raymond, the playful mischief maker who originally portrayed the Phanatic. On May 16, in its 67-page draft of the operations manual sent to teams, MLB banned Bernie Brewer, the Pirate Parrot, Dinger, Fredbird and their ilk from the ballpark, trying to restrict access and limit contact exposure. The final version of the manual this week reversed the policy. Mascots are in play, just not on the field. We’ll see what that means for the Sausage Race in Milwaukee and the dashing Presidents in Washington. Maybe they can stay socially distant, sprinting through the upper decks. No telling yet whether Mr. Met and Mrs. Met need to keep their distance. Now unmuzzled, no doubt, we’ll see plenty of masked mascots across the majors. On television, that is. When MLB starts the season next month, fans won’t be allowed in the ballparks. “I applaud MLB for this change,” Raymond said Tuesday. “They had said we were nonessential, but that’s not true.” “We’ve become part of the fabric of the game, engaging and entertaining the fans,” he said. A former punter at the University of Delaware, Raymond was working as an intern with the Phillies when he turned the oversized, green Phanatic into Philabransonglobe.com Phillie Phanatic, Mr Met, MLB mascots now permitted in parks delphia’s most popular figure. Raymond delighted crowds with an array of antics, skits and mayhem from 1978-93, often zipping across the Veteran Stadium turf on his ATV. He’s certain mascots can easily succeed even inside empty stadiums. “There are all kinds of little blurbs that can work,” he said. “And imagine this: During the seventh-inning stretch, what if you had a Zoom call with fans, where you put up 3,000 tiles of their pictures on the scoreboard and had them dance along?” This week’s reversal opened up more opportunities for Orbit, Lou Seal, Slider, the Swinging Friar and more. “I can think right now of about five routines that I’d do. There are lots of things mascots can try,” Raymond said. “You could even have a camera follow them around the park the whole game. It’d be fun for fans, seeing what they do.” A nice diversion during these tough times. “Most of us are going to the park to forget our problems or be entertained,” Raymond said. “That’s what we can do to help, even if there aren’t any fans inside.” New York Mets mascots Mrs and Mr. Met pose for pictures with the team’s equipment before it was sent to spring training (AP Photo/Seth Wenig, File)

bransonglobe.com SPORTS (AP) The USGA is leaning a little more on the world ranking and a lot more on tournament results over the next two months to fill the 144-man field for a U.S. Open that will be without open qualifying for the first time in nearly a century. The exemption categories announced Thursday include a spot for Phil Mickelson. A runner-up six times in the only major Lefty hasn’t won, the most devastating was in 2006 at Winged Foot, just north of New York City, where the U.S. Open is set to return Sept. 17-20. The COVID-19 pandemic that forced the U.S. Open to move from June also cost the championship its identity of being open to all. Open qualifying wasn’t possible for two stages at nearly 120 courses across the country and into Canada, England and Japan. The idea was to create a field that reflected a typical U.S. Open — the elite and the aspiring, from every continent in golf, pros and amateurs. And while it won’t be 36 holes of qualifying, it still comes down to playing well. “We are excited that players will still have an opportunity to earn a place in the field,” said John Bodenhamer, senior managing director of USGA championships. The top 70 from the world ranking on March 15 are exempt. Along with increasing that category by 10 spots, the USGA chose to use the last ranking before it was frozen during the shutdown in golf worldwide. That helps European Tour players, such as Eddie Pepperell and Robert MacIntyre, who are not able to play until July 9 — a month after the PGA Tour resumed with strong fields and big ranking points. That also momentarily leaves out Daniel Berger, who went from outside the top 100 to No. 31 with his victory against a stacked field at Colonial. But the USGA will use the Aug. 23 ranking — after the first FedEx Cup playoff event — as its reserve list, and about seven spots are expected to come from there. Mickelson was No. 61 when the ranking was frozen, and now is at No. 66. Mickelson, outspoken about the USGA and how it sets up U.S. Open courses, said in February that he would not ask for a special exemption if he was not otherwise eligible. With his five majors and Hall of Fame career — not to mention his legacy of silver medals in the U.S. Open — Mickelson likely would have received at least one exemption. Now he won’t have to worry about that. Bodenhamer said the 36-hole qualifier in England typically is the strongest, along with one in Ohio after the Memorial. Thus, 10 spots will be awarded to the leading 10 players (not already eligible) from a separate points list of the opening five tournaments on the European Tour’s U.K. swing when its schedule resumes. The Korn Ferry Tour also gets 10 spots — five from this season’s points list through the Portland Open, and then a special points list of three events that typically comprise the Korn Ferry Tour Finals. The leading five players from that list also get into Winged Foot. “We’ve got a pretty good mix of players,” Bodenhamer said. “Looking at the data, looking back at what the fields have been the last five years, there was a lot of Korn Ferry representation. We wanted to create pathways and allow those categories to earn their way in.” That held true for the amateurs. The U.S. Open already has six amateurs who earned spots by winning the U.S. Amateur or British Amateur, for example. The USGA also will take the leading seven amateurs available from the world amateur ranking on Aug. 19. The rest of the field is similar to what the British Open has done with its International Finals Qualifying for the PGA Tour. Two spots from the June 26-27, 2020 • 17 Mickelson added to field in a US Open without qualifying top 10 will earn exemptions from five tournaments, and three spots will be available from the PGA Championship. And for the international presence, two spots will be given to the leader money winner in the most recent season on the Sunshine Tour in South Africa, the Asian Tour, the PGA Tour of Australasia and the Japan Golf Tour, which gets two spots.

18 • June 26-27, 2020 CURIOUSITIES Swimmer caught on video grabbing shark at Delaware beach LEWES, Del. (AP) — A swimmer in Delaware was caught on camera prying a shark’s mouth open with his hands this weekend in an effort to free it from a fishing hook. The video shows the man grabbing onto the shark at a beach in Cape Henlopen State Park. He went into the water to unhook it after another person caught it, the Daily Times of Salisbury reported Tuesday. “Everyone started yelling, ‘Shark, shark, get out of the water!’” said Delaware native Rachael Foster, who shared her video on social media. “It was so crazy, like a movie. Like Jaws.” State law prohibits people from keeping sand tiger and sandbar sharks if caught. People must release them immediately. The newspaper reported park rangers were on site Sunday to assist and monitor the situation. Earlier this month, a boy was hospitalized for puncture wounds after he was possibly bitten by a shark in the park. The boy, 12, was surfing when something bit his leg. Officials then temporarily closed the park’s Herring Point to surfing and swimming. Shark attacks are rare. The Florida Museum of Natural History recorded 41 confirmed unprovoked shark attacks in the U.S. last year. The cases represented 64% of the worldwide total. Not kidding around: Woman sues for paternity test on goats ODESSA, Fla. (AP) — A Florida woman has filed a lawsuit seeking either a paternity test on her goats or a refund — and she’s not kidding. Kris Hedstrom filed the suit against her neighbor, Heather Dayner, last month seeking DNA for the goats she purchased. Hedstrom paid Dayner $900 for five Nigerian dwarf goats in December. According to the lawsuit, Hedstrom believed the goats — Bella, Gigi, Rosie, Zelda and Margoat — could be registered with the American Dairy Goat Association, a group that records goat pedigrees. Registered goats have higher values than unregistered goats. Dayner, who has been selling goats at Baxter Lane Farm for about 10 years, typically provides information to her clients so they can register their animals themselves. She said the father goat was registered, but the Tampa Bay Times reports the American Dairy Goat Association rejected Hedstrom’s application to register the babies because Dayner is not an active member. Proving paternity would require about 40 of the father goat’s hair follicles for a DNA test, so Hedstrom wrote Dayner a letter requesting the DNA in February. Dayner offered to refund the money in exchange for the goats. She said Hedstrom called police on her for three months straight and has trespassed on her farm. A Hillsborough County Sheriff’s deputy visited the property at least three times in the spring. Dayner said she didn’t hear anything else from Hedstrom until the lawsuit was filed. Sausage, onion and iguana: Dead reptile found in pizza joint WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — File it under pizza toppings only offered in Florida. State inspectors found an 80-pound (36-kilogram) iguana stashed in the freezer at a local pizza joint. Pizza Mambo in West Palm Beach was forced to close for a day last week following the inspection by the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation. The restaurant could not be reached for comment, but an embransonglobe.com ployee told the South Florida Sun Sentinel that the reptile was given as a personal gift to the owner. It was stored in a separate freezer away from the restaurant’s food and was immediately trashed after they were informed it was a violation. Non-native iguanas are multiplying so rapidly in South Florida that a state wildlife agency has been encouraging people to kill them. Iguanas aren’t dangerous or aggressive to humans, but they damage seawalls, sidewalks, landscape foliage and can dig lengthy tunnels. The males can grow to at least 5 feet (1.5 meters) long and weigh nearly 20 pounds (9 kilograms) and female iguanas can lay nearly 80 eggs a year. The reptile is considered a delicacy by some. One company even makes iguana sausages and burgers. Michigan man wins $4M lottery scratch card game, again SOUTH ROCKWOOD, KEEP CALM AND WASH YOUR HANDS Mich. (AP) — How does he do it? For the second time, a southeastern Michigan man has won a $4 million lottery game, officials said Monday. Mark Clark of South Rockwood scratched a ticket with a coin that was given to him by his late father about 10 years ago. They often fished together after Clark won a different $4 million instant game in 2017. “You don’t think you’ll win millions once, and you definitely never think it would happen twice,” Clark, 50, said in a statement released by the Michigan Lottery. “It’s hard to put into words exactly what I am feeling. ... I can’t help but think maybe that lucky coin helped me win this.” Clark chose a lump sum of about $2.5 million instead of taking $4 million in payments over time. “I’ve had a lot of ups and a lot of downs in my life, but everything is pretty amazing right now,” Clark said.
