When her husband’s illness worsened, Hollie Holderfield took a leave of absence from school to focus on her husband’s care. “He supported me through the entire thing,” Hollie Holderfield said. “I was grateful for the support I had from my co-workers, not only through my schooling but through his illness.” Marc Holderfield passed in October of 2019.

I have noted children who do not know which hand to use. Many young men do not know to remove their caps when the pledge is said. I dare say that many probably do not know what the words “pledge” and “allegiance” truly mean. Also, many children do not know what our national anthem is. There are many adults, as well as children, who think “America, the Beautiful” is the national anthem. Children need to be taught these things. It might help develop their respect for our flag if they knew the story of how our national anthem, the “Star Spangled Banner”, was written. Our national anthem was written by Francis Scott Key. He was born in 1779 in western Maryland, just a few years after our Declaration of Independence was signed. His family was very wealthy and owned an estate called “Terra Rubra”. When he was ten years old, his parents sent him to a grammar school in Annapolis, Maryland, and he graduated at age 17. He then studied to be a lawyer. He was a deeply religious man and was active in the Episcopal Church. He was asked to help negotiate the release of a prisoner from the British during the war of 1812. 1931 that it became the national anthem. After the war, Francis Scott Key continued to live a very religious life. Because of his religion, he had been against the war of 1812, but he did serve in the war in the Georgetown artillery in 1813 because he loved his country so much. On January 11, 1843, while visiting his daughter in Baltimore, he died of pleurisy. There are monuments to him bransonglobe.com Train Up a Child: Teaching children to respect ‘Old Glory’ By Pat Lamb at Ft. McHenry, the Presidio in San Francisco, in Baltimore and Frederick, Maryland. If children can be helped to understand the love that Francis Scott Key had for our country and our flag, they will better love and respect them both. There are many good books in public libraries that can be checked out to give more information about our flag and country. It is worth the time and effort to use these with children. Pat Lamb. (FILE) He was actually on a ship headed back for Maryland with the released prisoner when the British attacked Ft. McHenry. The ship was stopped until the end of the attack on the fort and from the ship, the attack was observed. It was from this ship that Francis Scott Key looked to see if our American flag was still standing after the British withdrew the attack. He was happy to see the flag was still there and he took pen and paper and wrote the poem that became the words to the national anthem. The British had bombarded Ft. McHenry for 25 hours and finally decided they could not capture it and withdrew. The poem written by Francis Scott Key was originally named “The Defense of Ft. McHenry”. It was handed out as a handbill and the public fell in love with it. It was renamed “The Star Spangled Banner” and became a song. It wasn’t until Teach children about the pledge of allegiance and the Star Spangled Banner. (Shutterstock photo) @BransonGlobe BransonGlobe @BransonGlobe #Branson Globe

bransonglobe.com LOCAL Missouri State debate students are National Grand Prix champions Submitted to Branson Globe Missouri State University students claimed two major wins at the National Grand Prix debate tournament June 6-7. The students are part of the Holt V. Spicer Debate Forum, which has regularly competed against schools such as Harvard University and Dartmouth College. The Grand Prix, hosted by MSU and originally scheduled for March 14-15, took place online June 6-7 due to COVID-19. Gabe Morrison graduated in May just before the tournament occurred. He was still eligible to compete, however, and Morrison won the final debate of the National Forensics Association Lincoln Douglas Debate Grand Prix. “In the last debate, I defended an unconventional measure: federally-funded climate or environmental aesthetics workshops,” Morrison said. Morrison said climate change is a problem with such a massive scale, it is difficult to imagine how individuals, or even larger communities, could meaningfully contribute to a sustainable future. “My research suggested that sustainability became much more conceivable after environmental workshops are dispensed through hands-on, collaborative experience,” Morrison said. “Winning the final round was a little jarring. I didn’t fully process what happened until the next morning.” Energy and climate policy are two of Morrison’s favorite areas of research. “I suppose that didn’t hurt,” he said. Morrison majored in philosophy with a minor in English. He is confident his debate skills could help him succeed in a variety of fields, including public policy, public relations and advertising. Freshmen Brenden Lucas won the junior varsity division of the tournament, though Dr. Eric Morris, director of the Spicer Debate Fourm, says the division was additionally championed by junior Chase Coger. “The common practice is not to hold a final round when the competitors are from the same school, even though Brenden was higher seeded coming into finals,” Morris said. Morris said three other Missouri State Students also qualified for elimination rounds in an open division: freshman Sam Cade and sophomores Peyton Reeves and Michael Waggoner. They were eliminated before the final round or the seventh elimination. The Holt V. Spicer Debate Forum welcomes all Missouri State students. To join, students can enroll in COM 321 or contact Dr. Morris at ericmorris@missouristate.edu. Debate students will begin competing again in September.

Our staff members will still do everything they can to help students be successful,” President Clif Smart said. “We’ll still have fun events, interesting lectures and inspiring performances.” The university will continue to follow local, state and federal safety guidelines to make campus as safe as it can be. To prepare for the fall reopening, Missouri State has published a Return to Campus Guide. It outlines plans for a smooth and safe return to campus. “I hope this guide will answer many of the questions our students, their parents and others have about what’s going to happen,” Smart said. The guide highlights: • • • • • Decision-making principles. Health and safety measures. • Key information for staff and faculty. Plans for academics and student success. Plans for housing, dining and campus life. Policies for events and gatherings, including athletic events. Missouri State will release specific information about face coverings and testing (in early August) later in the summer. Ozarks Technical Community College is coping by adjusting its calendar for the fall semester. The college will begin the semester as originally planned on Aug. 24, and the last day of final exams will be Dec. 18.

Though she was qualified – she was salutatorian of her class – she was denied admission. In 2010, Missouri State awarded her an honorary bachelor’s degree, and in 2016 the Mary Jean Price Walls Multicultural Resource Center Annex was named in her honor. Walls died on July 6, 2020. She had eight children and she retired from the workforce in 2009 after serving as a janitor at a local science center. “I was saddened to learn of the passing of Mary Jean Price Walls this week,” said Missouri State President Clif Smart. “She was denied admission to the university in 1950 because of the color of her skin. She is a reminder of our history of discrimination which we continue to work to overcome.” Walls’ son, Terry, uncovered his mother’s story when he was a student at Missouri State. He graduated with a criminology degree in 2012. “In 2016, the MSU Multicultural Resource Center Annex was proudly named in recognition of Mary Jean Price Walls,” said Dr. Dee Siscoe, vice president for student affairs. “I was sad to hear of her passing.

bransonglobe.com LOCAL University Communications Office SPRINGFIELD — The Missouri State University Ad Team took first place in the McCain Institute’s Peer-to-Peer Protective campaign in a virtual competition June 23. Teams originally planned to present their campaigns in person, but concerns surrounding COVID-19 changed the competition circumstances. Instead, MSU was one of three universities to participate in a virtual presentation via Zoom. While this presented team members with new challenges, they pressed forward with the campaign and finished strong. MSU’s Ad Team has earned eight national titles since 2008. The team was tasked with creating a campaign that aims to address the topic of targeted violence in the community. Team members used skills they learned in the classroom, practical experience, outside research and insight from advisors to create a campaign that builds emotional intelligence, positive self-image and resilience in youth. Their efforts resulted in the Kindness Empowers Youth, or K.E.Y., program, to counter the spread of Incel communities and targeted violence. Incel is short for “Involuntary Celibate.” They are an online community of predominately heterosexual men whose self-worth is defined by perceived physical and sexual inadequacy. The program aims to help children in grades 3-5 build emotional intelligence and a healthy self-concept to make the right choices in tough situations. This opportunity is already opening doors for the students to continue the KEY campaign and launch their professional careers. “Competing on a national stage allows graduates to connect with a broader network and I’m excited WED 93 Chance For a Isolated Showers & T-Storms 72 that some of the team is already in contact with high-profile organizations following the win,” said Ad Team instructor Samantha Francka.

bransonglobe.com STATE July 8-9, 2020 • 13 Enjoy picking - and eating - the wild fruits of summer By Peg Craft, Missouri Dept. of Conservation If you’re looking for a new adventure this summer, especially one that’s healthy, tasty, and can involve the whole family, berry picking may be right for you. It’s a chance to spend time together outdoors and enjoy the fruits of your labor. Wildlife and people enjoy the tastes of wild fruits in the summer. They’re also rich in anti-oxidants, fiber, and vitamins C and K. Mulberries are among the first fruits of the season, ripening from late May through July. Birds and squirrels love them so you’ll find the trees full with fruit and song. And your kids’ hands and faces sporting happy blue stains. Mulberries make fine pies and cobblers. The trees grow in a wide variety of places and are common in cities. The wood of the mulberry tree has a number of uses, including fence posts and furniture because of its density and decay-resistance. A fruit that’s often picked when it’s still green is the gooseberry. The unripened fruit is tangy and makes terrific pies. The ripe fruit is red and sweet and it’s hard to beat the birds to them. Gooseberries are found June through September in open woods and roadsides. The leaves of gooseberries can be used raw in a tossed salad or slaw. They can also be used to make tea. Another name for gooseberry is feverberry, because rumor has it you can crush up the leaves, add them to hot water and get a concoction that will break a fever. Blackberries are perhaps the all-time favorite summer wild fruit for people as well as raccoons, squirrels, box turtles, and birds. Ripening in late June through August, blackberries taste great fresh, in pies, and as toppings. Look for their briar patches in prairies, old fields and along wooded edges. These berries are sometimes used in natural healing techniques. The leaves have been known to provide benefits to those suffering from gum inflammation and sore throat. Watch how to make a creamy blackberry pie video in the gallery below. It doesn’t take much prep time to get started. You’ll need a bucket, protection from sun and insects, some old shoes, and long sleeves and pants as some fruits will be surrounded by thorns. Make sure you know exactly what you are picking before consuming wild berries. It helps to start with someone with experience. Also, ask permission before berry picking on private property.

14 • July 8-9, 2020 LOCAL NEW YORK (AP) — President Donald Trump’s niece offers a scathing portrayal of her uncle in a new book obtained by The Associated Press Tuesday that credits a “perfect storm of catastrophes” for exposing the president at his worst. Mary L. Trump, a psychologist, writes that the coronavirus pandemic, the possibility of an economic depression and deepening social divides have brought out the “worst effects” of Donald Trump’s pathologies, which were less evident when the country had a stable economy and the lack of serious crises. Those factors, along with “Donald’s penchant for division, and uncertainty about our country’s future have created a perfect storm of catastrophes that no one is less equipped than my uncle to manage,” she writes in “Too Much and Never Enough, How My Family Created The World’s Most Dangerous Man.” Mary Trump is the daughter of Trump’s older brother, Fred Jr., who died after a struggle with alcoholism at 42. In the book, Mary Trump makes several revelations, including alleging that the president paid a friend to take the SATs — a standardized test widely used for college admissions — in his place. She writes that his sister, Maryanne had been doing his homework for him, but she couldn’t take his tests. Donald Trump worried that his grade point average, which put him far from the top of the class, would “scuttle his efforts to get accepted” into the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, which he transferred to after two years at Fordham University in the Bronx. “To hedge his bets he enlisted Joe Shapiro, a smart kid with a reputation for being a good test bransonglobe.com Mary Trump’s book offers scathing portrayal of president taker, to take his SATs for him. That was much easier to pull off in the days before photo IDs and computerized records. Donald, who never lacked for funds, paid his buddy well.” And she writes, in awe, of Trump’s ability to gain the support of prominent Christians and White Evangelicals, saying, “The only time Donald went to church was when the cameras were there. It’s mind boggling. He has no principles. None!” Mary Trump traces much of her pain to the death of her father, who died when she was 16, and her grandfather Fred’s penchant, as she describes it, to sew division in the family. “The atmosphere of division my grandfather created in the Trump family is the water in which Donald has always swum, and division continues to benefit him at the expense of everybody else. It’s wearing the country down, just as it did my father, changing us even as it leaves Donald unaltered,” she wrote. “It’s weakening our ability to be kind or believe in SEE TRUMP, PAGE 15 Mary Trump’s book on left, Mary Trump on right.

bransonglobe.com LOCAL • TRUMP Continued from page 14 forgiveness, concepts that have never had any meaning for him.” Trump, who rarely admits regret, told The Washington Post last year that he regretted having tried to pressure his brother to join the family business — something Fred, who had long wanted to be a pilot had no interest in doing. “It was just not his thing. . . . I think the mistake that we made was we assumed that everybody would like it. That would be the biggest mistake. . . . There was sort of a double pressure put on him,” Trump told the paper. Trump has also cited his brother’s struggle with alcohol as one of one of the reasons he doesn’t drink. Publisher Simon & Schuster announced Monday that they would be publishing the book two weeks early, on July 14, citing “extraordinary interest.” The revised date came after a New York appellate court cleared the way for the book’s publication following a legal challenge. Robert Trump, the president’s younger brother, had sued Mary Trump to block publication of a book, arguing in legal papers that Mary Trump was subject to a 20-year-old agreement between family members that no one would publish accounts involving the core family members without their approval. A judge last week left in place a restraint that blocked Mary Trump and any agent of hers from distributing the book, but the court made clear it was not considering Simon & Schuster to be covered by the ruling. In the book, Mary Trump said she didn’t take her uncle’s run for the presidency seriously when he first ran. “‘He’s a clown,’ my aunt Maryanne said during one of our regular lunches at the time. ‘This will never happen.’” “I agreed,” Mary Trump wrote. She said she declined an invitation to attend her uncle’s election-night party in New York City four years ago, convinced she “wouldn’t be able to contain my euphoria when Clinton’s victory was announced.” Instead, she found herself wandering around her house a few hours after Trump’s victory was announced, fearful voters “had chosen to turn this country into a macro version of my malignantly dysfunctional family.” She writes that current challenges have weakened the president’s usual tools for shielding himself from blame. “His ability to control unfavorable situations by lying, spinning, and obfuscating has diminished to the point of impotence in the midst of the tragedies we are currently facing,” she writes. “His egregious and arguably intentional mishandling of the current catastrophe has led to a level of pushback and scrutiny that he’s never experienced before, increasing his belligerence and need for petty revenge as he withholds vital funding, personal protective equipment, and ventilators that your tax dollars have paid for from states whose governors don’t kiss his ass sufficiently,” Mary Trump wrote. White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said of the book: “It’s ridiculous, absurd accusations that have absolutely no bearing in truth. I have yet to see the book, but it is a July 8-9, 2020 • 15 book of falsehoods.” White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said in an interview with Fox News that “there are too many books out there that are never fact checked,” adding: “I believe family matters should be family matters.”

16 • July 8-9, 2020 SPORTS (AP) The Kansas City Chiefs made sure they’ll have Super Bowl MVP Patrick Mahomes around as long as possible. Mahomes agreed to a 10-year extension worth up to $503 million, according to his agency, Steinberg Sports. The deal is worth $477 million in guarantee mechanisms and includes a no-trade clause and opt-out clauses if guarantee mechanisms aren’t met. It’s the richest contract in professional sports history, surpassing Mike Trout’s $426.5 million deal with the Los Angeles Angels. “Since he joined the Chiefs just a few years ago, Patrick has developed into one of the most prolific athletes in all of sports,” Chiefs chairman Clark Hunt said in a statement about the quarterback who led them to their first championship in 50 years. “With his dynamic play and infectious personality, he is one of the most recognized and beloved figures to put on the Chiefs uniform. He’s an extraordinary leader and a credit to the Kansas City community, and I’m delighted that he will be a member of the Chiefs for many years to come.” The Chiefs had the 2018 NFL MVP under contract for the next two seasons but that wasn’t nearly enough. “Here to stay,” Mahomes wrote on Twitter. The contract extension starts in 2022 when the NFL salary cap is projected to be $227.5 million. However, that number could be lower depending on revenue losses due to the cornonavirus pandemic and the possibility any games played this season won’t have fans. Still, Mahomes will take up a big chunk of Kansas City’s cap space, around 20 percent depending on the annual contract breakdown and final cap numbers. That could potentially make it difficult for the Chiefs to pay several star players big contracts. The Chiefs already had picked “Here to stay”, Patrick Mahomes inks a huge deal with Kansas City. (AP FILE) up their fifth-year option in April on Mahomes, who had been due to make $825,000 on the final year of his rookie contract this season, to keep him around at least through 2021. General manager Brett Veach said this deal has been a priority for quite a while and thanked Mahomes’ agents, Chris Cabott and Leigh Steinberg. “His abilities are so rare, and to couple that with an incredible personality is outstanding,” Veach said of Mahomes. “We’re going to continue to do everything we can to surround him with talent, and this deal provides us more flexibility to do that. He’s obviously an integral part to our success and we’re thrilled he’s going to be the quarterback of the Kansas City Chiefs for a long time.” Mahomes threw touchdown passfourth-quarter es on consecutive drives in rallying the Chiefs to their first Super Bowl title in 50 years and the first for coach Andy Reid. That comeback performance earned Mahomes the Super Bowl MVP award and only cemented his status as the face of the Kansas City franchise. Reid said the best part is that Mahomes is still early in his career. Mahomes won’t turn 25 until Sept. 17. “He’s a natural leader and always bransonglobe.com Chiefs, Mahomes agree to 10-year, $503 million extension grinding, whether that’s on the field, in the weight room or watching film, he wants to be the best,” Reid said. “He’s a competitor and his teammates feed off his energy. He makes us all better as an organization and we are blessed he’s going to be our quarterback for years to come.” The Chiefs traded up to select Mahomes 10th overall in the 2017 draft, and he spent one season learning the ropes under Alex Smith before getting the starting job. Mahomes proceeded to shatter just about every franchise passing record while winning the league MVP award, and he had the Chiefs within overtime of landing in the Super Bowl that season. He also was The Associated Press NFL Offensive Player of the Year. He dealt with numerous injuries this past season, including a dislocated kneecap on a seemingly innocent quarterback sneak that left him sidelined for a couple of games. He came back to lead the Chiefs to a long winning streak that culminated with a series of come-from-behind wins in the playoffs, including their second-half rally in the Super Bowl.

They washed their hands freNASCAR driver Jimmy Johnson. (AP Photo/John Raoux, File) quently, diligently followed the face-mask guidelines and even left their home in Charlotte, North Carolina, for the less densely populated Aspen, Colorado. And yet both Johnson and his wife still tested positive for the virus this week — knocking the seven-time NASCAR champion out of what was expected to be his final Brickyard 400. Johnson is the first NASCAR driver to test positive for the virus that causes COVID-19 and it will end his streak of 663 consecutive Cup starts. It’s also temporarily disrupting his family life as he and wife, Chani, attempt to quarantine while still raising their two daughters. Both girls tested negative, Johnson said. “We’re being very responsible in our home and trying to self-isolate, but at the same time we have to parent on top of their fears,” Johnson said Saturday by Zoom from Colorado. “So we’re OK, but for a 9-yearold and 6-year-old, it’s hard. We SEE JOHNSON, PAGE 19

bransonglobe.com SPORTS • JOHNSON Continued from page 18 can’t feed them. We’re heartbroken to see the fear in their eyes.” Johnson was in Indianapolis on Wednesday to test on Dallara’s simulator. He then flew back to Aspen and was scheduled to return to Indy for Sunday’s race. He didn’t have an inkling anything was wrong until Friday. Chani Johnson had been experiencing seasonal allergy symptoms in the summer mountain air, and the 44-year-old Johnson was using a routine prescription to treat his own seasonal issues. Chani Johnson, a “rule follower” her husband said, went for a coronavirus test because of the allergies. Her results came back positive Friday morning and Johnson and their daughters immediately went for their own tests. “It would be very easy right now to get bummed out,” said Johnson, who is stepping away from full-time NASCAR racing at the end of the season. “If it wasn’t for Chani’s diligence to do the right thing, we’d be going on with life as normal and who knows who we could have come in contact with and infected.” The good news is doctors believe Johnson’s wife already endured the worst of COVID-19. Johnson said aside from a tickle in his throat, he’s asymptomatic. But the ramifications reverberate around the racing community. Johnson said he has spoken with representatives from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as part of a contact tracing initiative and continues to seek out answers to a litany of questions. One thing he’s not certain about is a positive test for antibodies he said he received early in the pandemic. “I was warned by my physician then that although I did test positive for the antibodies, there’s a 20% chance that it’s incorrect,” Johnson said. “On top of the fact that they don’t know what the antibodies mean. Still today, I don’t know what they mean. “Once I clear this and go back into life, I assume I still need to be very cautious and I could be re-infected once again. There are just so many questions regarding this virus and what means what. I still don’t have clarity. The longer I get into this and the more issues I deal with, the more questions I have.” He can’t return to racing unless he’s free of symptoms and has two negative tests in a 24-hour span. Justin Allgaier will replace Johnson in Hendrick Motorsports’ No. 48 Chevrolet and one team member — the mechanic in charge of Johnson’s cockpit — has been quarantined because he’s the only Hendrick employee to have come into close contact with the driver. “Purely out of precaution, the interior mechanic was the one person we could identify who had contact with Jimmie or his suit or whatever,” said Jeff Andrews, the team’s vice president of competition. A new race strategy also may be necessary. Instead of starting fourth, the position Johnson earned in a random draw, Allgaier will have to drop to the back of the field because of rules regarding driver changes. NASCAR President Steve Phelps said on NBC the series is hopeful Johnson can be back by next Sunday at Kentucky Speedway. The series does not test for the coronavirus and Phelps did not indicate Johnson’s positive result will change that. “I think the protocols have actually worked really, really well for us,” Phelps said in the prerace show. “Obviously, it is unfortunate that Jimmie is going to be out of the car this weekend. I think if you look at the procedures that we have in place and the policies that we have in place, really, to protect the drivers, the crews, our own officials and anyone who is working at the race track — the number of positive tests that we’ve had has been so, so far and few and far between.” Johnson is the first NASCAR driver to test positive since the sport resumed in May. Two teams have confirmed that shop-based employees who do not travel to the track have had positive tests. NASCAR granted Johnson a waiver to compete in the playoffs if he qualifies. Johnson is 12th in the standings, 63 points inside the playoff picture. Meanwhile, back at the mountain home, adjustments are being made. Johnson plans to watch NASCAR racing on television for the first time since he became a Cup regular in 2002, a potential preview of how retirement July 8-9, 2020 • 19 may look, while trying to figure out how to celebrate the holiday weekend and his older daughter’s 10th birthday. “We’re very scared to be around them and interact with them, not to mention my oldest has her birthday coming up on the seventh,” he said. “We’re going to be celebrating inside our house, but it’s really been tough for our kids to grasp.”

20 • July 8-9, 2020 ENTERTAINMENT NEW YORK (AP) — Hugh Downs, the genial, versatile broadcaster who became one of television’s most familiar and welcome faces with more than 15,000 hours on news, game and talk shows, has died at age 99. Downs died of natural causes at his home in Scottsdale, Arizona, on Wednesday, said his great-niece, Molly Shaheen. “The Guinness Book of World Records” recognized Downs as having logged more hours in front of the camera than any television personality until Regis Philbin passed him in 2004. He worked on NBC’s “Today” and “Tonight” shows, the game show “Concentration,” co-hosted the ABC magazine show “20/20” with Barbara Walters and the PBS series “Over Easy” and “Live From Lincoln Center.” His signature sign-off at the end of “20/20” told viewers: “We’re in touch, so you be in touch.” “I’ve worked on so many differHugh Downs passed away at age 99. (AP Photo/Evan Agostini, File) ent shows and done so many shows at the same time,” Downs said in a 1986 Associated Press interview. “I once said I’d done everything on radio and television except play-byplay sports. Then I remembered I’d covered a boxing match in Lima, Ohio, in 1939.” Downs began his broadcasting career at the age of 18 as a $12-a-week announcer on a small Ohio radio station. When television came along, he at first looked on it as a gimmick, but quickly realized “it was probably a juggernaut, and I’d better be in on it.” He was an announcer in Chicago, which was a television incubator in the 1950, for “Kukla, Fran & Ollie” and “Hawkins Falls,” which he said was television’s first soap opera. In 1954, he went to New York for “The Home Show.” In 1961, Newsweek described him as “a gluttonous reader with a first-rate brain that he keeps curried and exercised like a prize poodle.” His reputation was such that he even won the right to approve any commercial he was assigned to read, striving to keep dubious claims off the air. “My loyalty was with the person tuning in,” he said. “It was expedient. If I lost my credibility, what use would I be to a client?” He showed his principled side again in 1997, when he took a vacation day on “20/20” rather than be part on a show that included an interview with Marv Albert after the sportscaster was caught in a lurid sexual assault scandal. On Twitter Thursday, CBS News political correspondent Ed O’Keefe noted: “He retired from ‘20/20’ in 1999 and died at age 99 in the year 2020. Sweet symmetry. Rest easy, Hugh Downs. One of the best.” Downs had a particular interest in science, once launching into a monologue on the Paar show on the science underlying water-skiing. It prompted Paar to quip, “Well, Hugh, when you drown, you’ll know the reason why.” His interest in problems of the aging — he even earned a postgraduate degree in gerontology — was highlighted in his Public Broadcastbransonglobe.com Hugh Downs, genial presence on TV news and game shows, dies ing Service series “Over Easy” as well as many of his “20/20” pieces. “We all suffer in our culture from the idea ... that youth was the big thing,” he said. “There has been kind of a loss of respect for older people, and we lose gleaning wisdom from older people. We lose the ability to see that impairment and decrepitude don’t necessarily go along with age.” His work on “20/20” also showed his adventurous spirit, such as the time he got to ride a killer whale, and another time he put on breathing apparatus to swim near a great white shark. There was a hazardous expedition to the South Pole in which one participant nearly fell to his death. Downs began his work as Paar’s second banana in 1957, after a stint as host of NBC’s “The Home Show.” In a highly publicized incident in February 1960, Paar stormed off the air in a dispute involving network cutting a Paar “water closet” (toilet) joke the censors disliked. Downs won praise for calmly telling the audience “I’d like to think this is not final” and keeping the live show running until signoff time. Downs said later that he expected that Paar would at any minute return to the stage “with some punch line or something. He didn’t.” But Downs said he was eventually grateful for the boost the brouhaha gave his career. Paar finally returned to the show a few weeks later. Paar’s departure from “Tonight” in 1962 paved the way for Johnny Carson. Downs, meanwhile, began his nine-year run as host of the “Today” show. Walters was a “Today” colleague for part of that time. She admired Downs and praised his generosity and collegiality. He expressed his views modestly in the 1995 book “The Box: An Oral History of Television, 1920-1961”: “In a way the less talent you have or deploy, the less chance you have of overexposure. That may be why I have been on network television more than anybody in the world.”

bransonglobe.com INTERNATIONAL Little to celebrate in Pamplona with no running of the bulls PAMPLONA, Spain (AP) — Residents in Spain’s northern city of Pamplona dressed up Monday in white clothes and traditional red scarves to mark what should have been the start of their annual San Fermín festival, which was cancelled this year due to the coronavirus pandemic. Known for its races with bulls running along cobbled streets, the festival was popularized by Ernest Hemingway’s 1926 novel “The Sun Also Rises” and was last called off during the Spanish Civil War in the 1930s. With more than 28,000 deaths from the novel virus and an economy in the doldrums following a strict nationwide lockdown, local authorities say there is little to celebrate. But Joaquín Beloki, a 33-yearold resident, said one could still toast “the health of all those who have not contracted the coronavirus.” He joined together on Monday with about 400 others at a central square where normally more than 12,000 would witness the opening of the festival. They gathered at the city hall square at noon, the time a rocket known as “Chupinazo” opens the 9-day festival in normal times. Revelers from all around the world respond to the rocket by bathing each other with red wine and champagne. Instead a large sign from the city hall’s facade displayed the slogan #WeWillExperienceThem, an invitation to revelers to return for next year’s celebrations. Hundreds of police officers were deployed to prevent impromptu parties at bars or on streets. The city’s mayor, Enrique Maya, said at a press conference that 2020 is “a parenthesis in which we are going to accumulate desire to celebrate in 2021.” A video was also launched with medical personnel reminding viewers that “it is enough to be irresponsible one day to ruin three months of everyone’s efforts,” in reference to the confinement that Spain enacted from mid-March to mid-June.

22 • July 8-9, 2020 CURIOUSITIES Was green-onion flavored Chex worth the wait? SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — South Koreans have waited 16 long years for a savory, crispy bite that would satisfy their taste buds and right an infamous wrong. This week, they finally could fill a bowl with the cereal they wanted all along: green onion-flavored Chex. Kellogg’s Korea’s limited-edition flavor released this week, complete with a catchy ad and an apology for the wait, has taken on surprising cultural significance for an odd culinary experiment. In 2004, the company advertised a public vote for a new product: chocolate-flavored Cheki or green onion-flavored Chaka. Chaka led by an overwhelming Pieces of new green onion flavored Chex cereal are sprinkled on a bowl of Tteok-bokki, or stir-fried rice cakes, a popular Korean dish. (Lee Hyun Su via AP) margin, but duplicates were said to mar the online vote and Cheki was declared the winner. “It’s kind of representative of bigger issues in South Korean society,” said Raphael Rashid, a Seoulbased freelance journalist who writes about South Korean politics and culture. “South Koreans are used to or have experienced, you know, like years, if not decades, of dictatorship.” The chocolate victory was “kind of reminiscent” of that, he said. It brought to the surface long-buried memories for Yoon Gunhee, who voted in the infamous election. “At the time, I was young so I voted for chocolate,” said Yoon, a freelance game graphic designer. “Green onion really didn’t sound appetizing.” Yoon said she was amused this week by the light-hearted commercial for green onion Chex — featuring a popular South Korean singer declaring, “I’m sorry, I’m sorry that the green onion flavor arrived so late” and “the promise must be kept,” with scientists in white gowns in a laboratory laboring to develop the perfect flavor. The video has racked up over 900,000 views on YouTube. Yoon said she would like to buy it “at least once.” “The rigged voting at the time bransonglobe.com was such an unpleasant experience,” she recalled. While the memory was a small one, she was reminded of it whenever she saw a box of Chex. “I think I will be able to sort out my feelings after eating green onion flavored Chex,” Yoon said. South Korean Twitter has been rejoicing by uploading photos of their Chex. Some, feeling adventurous, sprinkled green onion cereal pieces as garnish on South Korean signature dishes including kimchi and spicy ramen noodles. Like Americans, South Koreans typically eat their cereal with milk, but some say green onion Chex tastes better alone or with a drink like beer or soju. Rashid positioned himself to be among the first to try it and acquired a box online. On Thursday his face turned sour when he got his first taste. It has an “artificial onion background taste,” he said, reminiscent of onion ring snacks that are popular in Korea. “It doesn’t taste great,” Rashid said, rinsing his mouth between bites. “And I think Kellogg knows that it probably doesn’t taste great either.” EXP. 7/31/20
