Steamy Joe Café offers an American-style breakfast and a deli-style lunch. Daily lunch specials are posted on Facebook, as is the drink of the week. So how did a retired AT&T employee venture into the restaurant business? “When I looked to retire my wife had always wanted to own a bakery,” Ryel explained. “I tell everybody, kind of teased around, ‘My wife would make these amazing cinnamon rolls for very special occasions, and they were a lot of work. She didn’t make them any old time. If I’m going to put together a restaurant you’ve got to have cinnamon rolls any time I want.’” “It keeps me out of trouble, keeps me off the couch, and gives me something to do,” Ryel said. “I really love being here in Branson, getting to see people and hear their SEE STEAMY JOE, PAGE 3 Potential community exposure has come from one COVID-19 positive individual.

bransonglobe.com LOCAL Got cucumbers? Try Great -Grandma’s Sweet Pickles By Mommy’s a Good Cooker It’s that time of year when my family starts craving cucumbers, so I thought it appropriate to dig out some of our favorite uses for this delicious veggie. Next week, I’ll share the recipe for “Mom’s Cukes,” an easy to fix recipe I received from a neighbor years ago. After that, I’ll have recipes for dill pickles and bread & butter pickles. Today, we’re talking about my great-grandmother’s sweet pickles. I have no idea how old this recipe is, but since she was born in 1883, I gather it’s well over 100 years old. My grandmother learned the art of pickle making from great-grandma, and then passed it down to my aunt and uncle, who continue the tradition today. A word of warning: you can’t just wake up one morning and decide you want pickles with your supper that evening. This process takes several days. So here we go! Sweet Pickles You need: Small cucumbers 2 gallons of water 1 cup of salt (enough salt in solution to bring an egg off bottom of crock and float) Cover the cucumbers with the brine solution in a large crock. Cover and let stand for 9 days. On the 10th day, split the cucumbers lengthwise. Cover with boiling water and let stand 24 hours. On the 11th day, drain the cucumbers, then cover them with boiling water and 1 teaspoon of alum per gallon of water used. Let stand 24 hours. On the 12th day, drain the pickles and thoroughly rinse them with July 10 - 11, 2020 • 5 cold water to ensure all alum residue has been removed. For Syrup: 6 cups of white sugar 3 cups white vinegar 2 cups water 1 oz. stick cinnamon 1 oz. whole allspice Wrap the cinnamon and allspice in cheesecloth, and boil for awhile in the mixture of sugar, water and vinegar. Cover the rinsed pickles with this syrup. Let stand for 24 hours. On the 13th, 14th and 15th days, drain the syrup, but reserve it. Boil the syrup with the cloth full of spices, plus 2 more cups of sugar. On the 16th day, drain the syrup and bring it to a boil. While waiting for the syrup to boil, pack pickles in jars. Hint: pack the pickles so the insides of the cucumbers face inside, away from the light. This improves quality. Cover the pickles in the jars with the boiling syrup. Seal the tops. Whenever a new family moved into the neighborhood, or a just-married couple was setting up housekeeping, great-grandma always got them set up right with several jars of her pickles. What’s a home without pickles, right? I knew you would agree. Enjoy! Help Support Branson local businesses @bransonlocalbusinesses.com

We will start this article with quotes from people in the medical profession who would know the benefits of wearing the mask. Since these quotes were presented several months ago, I believe these to be their true feelings and beliefs about face masks even though they have flip-flopped back and forth more for a political agenda than health. The US Surgeon General on February 29, 2020 stated “Seriously people, stop buying masks,” they are not effective in preventing general public from catching the coronavirus. In early March, he stated again what he had said earlier to stop buying masks. Dr. Fauci, head of the NIH (National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases), who also advises Trump about current conditions said “There’s no reason to be walking around with a mask on.” Later he said, right now in the United States, people should not be walking around with masks. He said masks might make people feel a little bit safer, but they simply don’t protect people from the virus. The CDC (Center for Disease Control) has maintained that you should only wear a mask if you yourself are infected. They have stated on several occasions that masks do not protect you from the virus. Healthy people should not be wearing masks. President Trump has stated he will likely not wear a face mask. Dr. Russell Blaylock warns that not only do face masks fail to protect the healthy from getting sick, they also create serious health risk to the wearer. Bottom line is, if you are not sick, you should not wear a face mask. Prime Minister of Sweden said wearing a mask doesn’t protect people from catching Covid 19 and wearing them can give a false sense of security. The World Health Organization (WHO), said, if you do not have any respiratory symptoms such as fever, cough, or running nose, you do not need to wear a mask. Face masks prevent individuals from inhaling full oxygen, instead recycled carbon dioxide (CO2) is inhaled, these effects are dangerous for people, even a slight increase of the carbon dioxide in their blood stream can contribute to anxiety and feelings of nervousness as well cause headaches, dizziness and fatigue, confusion, sweating, vertigo, double vision, inability to concentrate, seizures, shortness of breath and be a forerunner to a stroke or heart attack. Drop in oxygen can produce hypoxia that can inhibit the type of main immune cells used to fight viral infections. This sets the stage for contracting any infection including COVID-19 making that infection much graver. Your mask may very well put you at an increased risk of infections. Both the healthy and the ill should avoid wearing a mask like the plague. Children in particular should not be wearing a face mask, they need SEE LETTERS, PAGE 7 Gary Groman. (FILE) government, “of the people and by the people,” will make imperfect decisions. An Ole Seagull believes one of those imperfect decisions was the unconscionable tolerance of slavery in Constitution itself (U.S. Const. art. I, § 2, art. I § 9, and art. IV, § 2, cl.3.) Although slavery was abolished a lot quicker in the United States than in Africa, where it flourished for centuries prior to the start of slavery in America, it’s the root cause of one of the many problems that America is facing. Mark Twain said, “Patriotism is supporting your country all the time, and your government bransonglobe.com Can’t it be about patriotism and what unites us; not what divides us? when it deserves it.” To an Ole Seagull, whether it’s race, defense, environmental issues or some other problem, America is best served if She approaches them more united than divided. Can anyone tell him how not honoring our flag and National Anthem helps unite America and solve any of Her problems? On the other hand, one can readily see the divisiveness it has caused. Should not the honoring of our flag, nation, and NationSEE PATRIOTISM, PAGE 7 @BransonGlobe BransonGlobe @BransonGlobe #Branson Globe

bransonglobe.com OPINION • LETTERS Continued from page 6 to build up their immunity. They can have a severe effect on the immune system making the wearer more prone to sickness. It has been proven that paper, cloth, surgical masks are totally ineffective to filter SARS-CV2 virus. Home-made masks are just as bad including bandanas, they do not filter viruses, they don’t do squat for protection. If a mask is not tested and approved as a legitimate N95 respirator by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) it’s not going to do much to stop a virus from reaching your mouth or nose. CDC has maintained that you should only wear a mask if you yourself are infected. NIOSH warns that people with lung diseases, elderly people or those with claustrophobia may struggle with a N95 masks. Face masks can be effective against larger free-floating particles, connected to air pollution but nothing suggests that they help protect you from airborne viruses. People with cancer, especially if the cancer has spread, will be at further risk from prolonged hypoxia as the cancer grows best in a microenvironment that is low in oxygen. Low oxygen promotes inflammation which can promote the growth, invasion and spread of cancers. People with respiratory disabilities such as asthma, COPD, or cystic fibrosis may not be able to wear a face mask because of difficulty in or impaired breathing. These people are disabled according to the Americas Disabilities Act (ADA), forcing them to wear masks could pose as a health problem where organizations and businesses can be fined up to $75,000 for the first ADA violation and $150,000 for any subsequent violation. The CDC also states that anyone who has trouble breathing should not wear a face mask. Companies that mandate their employees to wear face masks, because of the CO2 factor, may face law suits in the future. We have been dealing with a non-lethal virus with approximately a 99% recovery rate. Viruses are seasonal and spread only in certain conditions. The flu and cold season runs from November thru March 31, because viruses flourish in cold and low humidity. As the temperatures rise, the viruses die off which we have experienced with this virus. If a spike in numbers during the warm and hot season are reported, they are intentionally inflating them to keep the fear going when there is none. During the warm and hot months, enjoy the outside, there is no reason to wear a mask, other than fear. Expect the hype to begin as the temperatures get colder. The best way to get rid of a flu virus is through herd immunity. Herd immunity occurs when a large portion of a community (the herd) becomes immune to a disease, making the spread of disease from person to person unlikely. As • PATRIOTISM Continued from page 6 al Anthem be a time to say, “Yes, we have problems and our Nation is not perfect but, in this moment of time, under this flag, we stand together, united, to honor the sacrifices made on Her behalf, and the “Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity” She represents? An Ole Seagull believes that the answer is “Yes.” What does it say about us, as a nation, if America is so divided that Her people cannot even unite together, under one National Anthem, for a moment, in a common united effort of respect for Her and, just as importantly, each other? In talking about an enemy destroying America Abraham Lincoln said, “At what point then is the approach of danger to be expected? I answer, if it a result, the whole community becomes protected. This can also be reached when a sufficient number of people in the population have recovered from a disease and have developed antibodies against future infection. Face masks give the illusion of fear, sign of defeat and make it harder to read facial expressions. They are perceived as a sense of safety, well-being which they are not. Face masks, social distancing, one way aisles, plexiglass by registers, are all areas of manipulation and control to promote fear that doesn’t exist. Get rid of the fear, take back your power and resist these measures of control. This is your decision that you must make for yourself. Do your own research. I personally will not wear a face mask and will not comply. I will not shop at businesses that require face masks. If a business loses enough customer base who refuse to shop with them because of this policy, maybe this will stop. Bill Mitchell Branson ever reach us, it must spring up amongst us. It cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As Demonstrators and face masks Dear Editor, In your July 3 and 4 paper, thank you for my letter on recycle. It probably will fall on deaf ears but we tried. I have a reply to Mr. Carlile [July 3 edition]. I agree with him. Why can’t these travelers or demonstrators stay at home and redo their own neighborhood. We have done fine here for many years without the help from outsiders who know very little about the people and town they converse on. There must be someone or some people that are financing these fools. I agree with him, you don’t like the store don’t go in. As of 7/4/20 we still have the opportunity to make our own decisions. If you don’t like it STAY AWAY. These people serve the customers and money input. Spend your money somewhere else. The Confederate flag is part of the culture like the constitution, Lincoln, Washington, FDR and all the rest of our past leaders. Get a a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide.” The world’s only perfect man said, “If a kingdom is divided against itself, July 10 - 11, 2020 • 7 grip people.

12 • July 10 - 11, 2020 STATE bransonglobe.com Missouri receives federal funding for August elections Special to Branson Globe The state has given about $4.5 million in federal money to Missouri’s 116 local election authorities. During a visit with reporters this week in Jefferson City, Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft says he hopes the money will help poll workers. “We made sure that everyone got at least $20,000, so that even our smallest jurisdictions had enough to really make a difference. One of the things that I’ve suggested, probably suggested it so many times that the election authorities are tired of me mentioning it, is that they should use a portion of those funds to increase their poll worker pay,” he says. Ashcroft, a Republican, has said during other occasions that the poll worker job is intense. Polls are open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. the day of elections. Workers have to be there before the doors open and they stay after polls close to count ballots and to do other tasks. Ashcroft says some states have not had enough polling precincts generally due to a lack of workers. “It’s a good opportunity for us to be able to put more money into paying poll workers, to get more poll workers, and also help out some people that might be in financial straits, to make sure that we have enough poll workers and we have enough polling locations,” says Ashcroft. He says he “fully believes” Missouri’s November election will be the “safest election people have participated in in Missouri”. “Because we’ve had H1N1 or swine flu or other things before and we’ve never gone to the steps that local election authorities are doing with the physical distancing, with the face shields, with the face masks, with the plexiglass barriers that they’re putting up and with the distancing strips. They’re actually going to machines and disinfecting them between voters,” says Ashcroft. Ashcroft anticipates the state will have about as many polling sites as it usually does during a primary election. Missouri’s primary is August 4.

bransonglobe.com STATE By Dan Zarlenga Courtesy of MDC St. CHARLES, Mo.—The adult male bear who attracted public attention and was christened “Bruno” by social media has been sedated and transported to suitable habitat outside the urban area, according to the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC). The bear is suspected to have traveled from Wisconsin, through Illinois, and into Missouri. He was first spotted in the Show-MeState near Elsberry on June 30, after which he made his way into St. Charles County. MDC staff received reports of the bear as he continued to travel through Missouri. MDC conservation agents say the bear appeared within the city Limits of Wentzville the morning of July 5 and cornered himself just north of I-70 and near I-40/61. MDC Protection Captain Scott Corley credited the St. Charles County and Wentzville Police Departments for their assistance in the situation and in managing the crowd of more than 400 onlookers who gathered at the scene. “The bear found itself in a tough spot, stuck by several major roadways,” said MDC State Furbearer Biologist Laura Conlee. “Due to the proximity to the roadways, coupled with the busy travel day, MDC staff determined the bear had little chance of safely leaving the area on its own. In the interest of public safety and the bear’s safety, MDC staff made the decision to immobilize the bear and transport it to a nearby area of suitable bear habitat outside this urban corridor.” MDC staff specially trained in wildlife handling successfully sedated the bear. The bear’s condition was monitored by MDC’s State Wildlife Veterinarian Dr. Sherri Russel. The bear was safely transported to an area of suitable habitat outside the urban area and was released unharmed when he awoke. MDC does not generally immobilize dispersing bears and will only take this action as a last resort. Given the bear’s location and safety considerations, staff on scene determined this was necessary and the situation allowed for it to be done. “MDC thanks local law enforcement for their assistance in managing the large crowd of interested onlookers and for assistance with the bear,” Conlee added. “Given the bear’s location and crowd, this assistance was critical to the success of this situation.” Conlee said that although this bear’s movements are a bit out of the norm, bears can traverse large distances and MDC frequently receives reports of bears throughout the southern half of Missouri where MDC estimates there are between 540-840 bears. Missouri’s bear population is growing approximately 9% annually and dispersing bears have appeared in the greater St. Louis area before, a trend that is likely to continue with the growing bear population. July 10 - 11, 2020 • 15 MDC staff sedates and transports ‘Bruno’ the bear to safety The bear had attracted extensive attention on social media, having multiple Facebook pages created for it and a combined total of more than 120,000 followers.

The new grants will expand the nearly 2,000 officers trained in drug-impaired driving detection through the first five years of the partnership. The 2020 grant awards will fund seven states – Illinois, Maryland, Minnesota, Missouri, Pennsylvania, Washington and Wyoming – with a total of $210,000 to support enhanced identification and assessment of alcohol and drug impaired drivers. GHSA will also receive $35,000 to educate State Highway Safety Offices and law enforcement agencies throughout the United States about state oral fluid test pilot programs.

bransonglobe.com SPORTS ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan said Wednesday he believes the name of Washington’s professional football team “probably should be changed,” though he supported the team’s name when he ran for governor in 2014. Hogan, a moderate Republican and a critic of President Donald Trump, was asked on NBC’s “Today” show whether he thought the NFL team should change its name. “I think the time is probably right,” Hogan said. “I’m glad that they’re having that discussion. I believe the name will be changed.” Hogan told The New York Times this week he is considering a run for president in 2024. The second-term governor remains popular in his heavily Democratic state, and his position on the Washington Redskins is another wedge between him and Trump, who said the team was considering a name change “in order to be politically correct.” The Redskins play in Landover, Maryland. Hogan grew up in the area as a fan of the team. “It’s got a lot of history associated with the name, but I understand it’s a hurtful name, and in today’s context it probably should be changed,” Hogan said. When Hogan ran for governor in 2014, he expressed support for the team’s name. That year, he criticized a U.S. Patent and Trademark Office decision to cancel the Redskins’ trademark registration, saying the the decision about what to call the team should be left to team owner Dan Snyder. In 2014, Hogan told The Washington Times that he likes to “call them the Washington Redskins,” and he added that he didn’t think government should have a role in determining what a business should call itself. The team announced this month that it has begun a “through review” of the nickname, which experts and advocates call a “dictionary-defined racial slur.” Asked by “Today” host Craig Melvin on Wednesday whether July 10 - 11, 2020 • 19 Maryland governor: Probably time to change Redskins name he acknowledged the name was a slur, Hogan said “absolutely.” Snyder has not shown a willingness to change the name since buying the team in 1999. The recent national conversation on race has renewed opposition to the name, prompting the team to conduct the formal review. The Washington Redskins are undergoing what the team calls a “thorough review” of their nickname. In a statement released Friday, July 3, 2020, the team says it has been talking to the NFL for weeks about the subject. Owner Dan Snyder says the process will include input from alumni, sponsors, the league, community and members of the organization. FedEx on Thursday called for the team to change its name, and Nike appeared to remove all Redskins gear from its online store. (AP Photo/Nick Wass, File)

20 • July 10 - 11, 2020 NATIONAL (AP) Public pressure amid protests over racial inequality forced Mississippi to furl its Confederate-inspired state flag for good, yet Georgia’s flag is based on another Confederate design and lives on. Why the difference? The Confederacy used more than one flag while it was fighting the United States to preserve slavery, and most of the designs are largely forgotten more than 150 years after the Civil War ended. Here are some facts about the flags of the Confederacy and how those symbols are viewed today. HOW MANY FLAGS DID THE CONFEDERACY USE? It depends on how you count, but lots. The Confederate States of America had three different national flags during its brief existence from 1861 through 1865, and multiple other flags were used by individual states, army and naval groups. The flag that’s best known today — a red background split by a blue X that’s decorated with white stars — is often called the “Confederate battle flag.” It originated in late 1861 as the fighting flag of the nation’s main eastern force, the Army of Northern Virginia, said John M. Coski, a historian and author with the American Civil War Museum in Richmond, Virginia. Other Confederate units to the west adopted the battle flag as the war went on, and it became the banner most commonly carried by troops, said Peter Ansoff, president of the North American Vexillological Association. The X design was incorporated into the nation’s nabransonglobe.com AP Explains: Confederate flags draw differing responses tional flag in 1863 and remained there through the end of the war. THE FLAG OF THE “LOST CAUSE” MOVEMENT With multiple variations in size, shape and decorations, the battle flag of the defeated South lived on after the war, largely because of the soldiers who fought under it, Coski said. “This was a continuation of its wartime prominence. I think the reason for it is that it was the flag most closely associated with Confederate soldiers,” he said. The banner took hold across the defeated region like nothing else. The battle flag became an unofficial symbol of the “lost cause” movement that sought to emphasize the supposed nobility and righteousness of the South while downplaying the fact that the Confederacy was meant to perpetuate slavery. White supremacists in South Carolina during Reconstruction used at least one wartime flag, Coski said, and the Ku Klux Klan began using the battle flag in the 1930s or early ’40s.

bransonglobe.com NATIONAL Woman arrested in hitand-run at Indiana protest INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — An Indiana woman was arrested in a hitand-run crash that sent one woman to the hospital and caused minor injuries to a man during a southern Indiana protest over the assault of a Black man by a group of white men, sheriff’s officials said Thursday. Christi Bennett, 66, was booked into the Monroe County Jail early Thursday on preliminary charges of criminal recklessness and leaving the scene of an accident, Deputy Barry Grooms said. She was released a couple of hours later on $500 cash bond. Authorities expect prosecutors to file formal charges later, and Bennett is scheduled to appear in court on July 17. Bennett could not immediately reached for comment. The confrontation happened near the Monroe County Courthouse in Bloomington, about 50 miles southwest of Indianapo• FLAGS Continued from page 20 Today’s KKK still uses the battle flag, which also is part of the emblem of the Sons of Confederate Veterans, a Southern history and heritage organization. A similar group for women, the United Daughters of the Confederacy, uses the first Confederate national flag, which has two red stripes, one white stripe and a blue square with stars. CONFEDERATE NATIONAL FLAGS LARGELY FORGOTTEN While the battle flag is recognized almost universally as “the Confederate flag,” its association with hate and white supremacy has taken a toll. The flag has lost much of its official prominence, a trend that accelerated during protests over the police killing of George Floyd in Minnesota. With biracial and bipartisan support, Mississippi last month retired the final state flag with the rebel design. Meanwhile, Confederate nationlis, on Monday evening. A 29-year-old woman was injured when a car accelerated into her, launching her onto the hood, police said. A 35-year-old man then grabbed the driver’s side of the car and held on as the vehicle continued to accelerate. Both were eventually flung to the ground and the car fled the scene, they said. The woman was knocked unconscious and suffered a cut to her head, while the man scraped his arm. The protesters had gathered in Bloomington on Monday to demand arrests in an assault on Vauhxx Booker, a civil rights activist and member of the Monroe County Human Rights Commission, by a group of white men at Monroe Lake near Bloomington over the Fourth of July weekend. The FBI has said it’s investigating the reported assault. al flags like the “Stainless Banner” and the “Blood-Stained Banner” or the unofficial “Bonnie Blue Flag” are virtually unknown to many. Southern historical parks and museums, some of which perpetuated the lost cause mythology, often display and store them, but generally without the controversy attached to the battle flag. Georgia’s current state flag, adopted after the state removed the battle flag from its state flag in 2003, even includes the design of the first Confederate national flag, the “Stars and Bars.” While some complained that the new design also was Confederate, the national flag design generally doesn’t have the “racist associations” of the battle flag, Ansoff said. The state flags of Alabama and Florida resemble the battle flag, with a red X on a white background; Florida’s also has a state seal in the middle. Both one-time Confederate states adopted the flags while the “lost cause” movement was growing after the war. July 10 - 11, 2020 • 21

22 • July 10 - 11, 2020 CURIOUSITIES Woof Warning: Dog alerts owner to house fire next door FRANKLIN, Tenn. (AP) — A dog in Tennessee became a hero on the Fourth of July by alerting her owner to a house fire next door. Roux, a 3-year-old Belgian Malinois, woke her owner Jeff LeCates with “frantic and unusual barks” on Saturday night, a Franklin Fire Department press release said. When LeCates opened his door to investigate, Roux burst out and LeCates saw his neighbor’s home on fire, officials said. LeCates banged on their door, waking the family of three and their pets, and then used a garden hose on the fire until firefighters arrived. No one in the home was injured. Franklin Fire Marshal Andy King said video evidence shows the homeowners throwing away fireworks and other combustibles near their trash can. Consumer fireworks are illegal in Franklin. The woman whose home caught fire has a special place in Roux’s heart. The press release said the woman is a dog groomer and the reason why LeCates adopted Roux 15 months ago. She knew LeCates had lost his German Shepard and Roux is a similar breed. She helped with the adoption, knowing Roux needed a home. Bald eagle trapped in Alaska tree rescued on 4th of July JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — A bird symbolizing America’s freedom had to be liberated on Independence Day after becoming stuck in a tree in Alaska, a wildlife official said. An adult, female bald eagle was hurt but conscious Saturday after being untangled from a spruce tree in Juneau, The Juneau Empire reported Saturday. “She was up about 40 feet (12 meters) in a Sitka spruce tree,” said Kathy Benner, general manager of the Juneau Raptor Center. The center received the report of the stranded eagle around 10 a.m. The bird was stuck in the tree near the historic Ernest Gruening Cabin in Ernest Gruening State Historical Park, Benner said. Steve Lewis of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service ascended the tree using climbing spikes on his shoes and carried the eagle down in a bag around 3 p.m. Wildlife officials initially believed the eagle’s wing had become tethered to a tree branch by fishing line, but closer inspection revealed a cable or wire had restrained the bird, Benner said. The eagle was taken by airplane to the Alaska Raptor Center in Sitka, which was expected to determine whether the bird suffered a broken bone. The eagle appeared to be alert and “feisty” before the flight Saturday evening, Benner said. While bald eagle rescues are not rare, Benner could not recall a previous instance of the U.S. national bird requiring assistance on the Fourth of July. “We feel pretty good about the especially rescue, on Independence Day,” Benner said. Sheriff: Man loses arm-wrestling match with son, pulls gun FLORENCE, Ky. (AP) — An arm-wrestling contest between a father and son turned violent and bransonglobe.com led to an 8-hour standoff with Kentucky deputies, authorities said. Curtis Zimmerman, 55, was charged Monday with wanton endangerment, news outlets reported. Deputies were sent to Zimmerman’s home around 1 a.m. Monday. Boone County Sheriff’s Office Lt. Philip Ridgell said Zimmerman was intoxicated when he challenged his son to an arm-wrestling competition. When Zimmerman lost multiple times, he became “agitated” and got into a physical fight with his son, Ridgell said. Zimmerman grabbed a gun and fired two shots into the ceiling while his son was going upstairs, Ridgell said. No one was injured. Police did not identify the son or give his age. When authorities arrived, two family members were outside but Zimmerman refused to leave the home, leading to an 8-hour standoff. Zimmerman surrendered around 8:30 a.m. It’s unclear whether Zimmerman had an attorney who would comment on his behalf. EXP. 7/31/20
