What’s interesting is that while all of us agree that the pandemic has been politicized, we all seem to point the finger at everyone else for doing the politicization. Conservatives accuse Democrats of over-reacting in an election year. Liberals accuse Republicans of valuing profits over lives. And many journalists are glad to exacerbate the red state vs. blue state COVID-19 comparisons. But COVID-19 doesn’t care about our political divisions. The virus is relentless and refuses to play our partisan games. The latest resurgence has seen spikes in the bluest of blue states: California, and the reddest of red states: Texas. Even more mystifying, both states seem to track similarly, even though California shut down early and Texas shut down late. Even the reopenings and the protests aren’t a great predictor, with some re-opened states seeing a spike and some not so much while some cities where there were mass protests seem to have avoided a surge while some are seeing an alarming number of new coronavirus cases.

We need our institutions to display greater transparency. We need leaders with credibility in a time of cynicism.

And it fans the flame of division when media outlets let bias and sensationalism shape their coverage instead of informing the public and reporting the facts. What we need are leaders willing to speak candidly and take measures, not guided by social media chatter or media pressure, but based on the data in front of them and informed by human dignity. We need hope and realism, faith and science, courage and civility. All of us are tempted to politicize the pandemic, to read the daily stream of news through the lens of our own preconceptions. We desperately want the worst to be true about our ideological opponents because it fills us with a sense of the rightness of our own cause. But this is counterproductive in a flourishing society. Instead, we should each commit to working harder to get all the facts, to avoid knee-jerk conclusions, and to resist passing along incomplete information. If we were honest, we might find that it is not always “those guys” politicizing the pandemic. It might be me. It might be you. @BransonGlobe BransonGlobe @BransonGlobe #Branson Globe

10 • July 12 - 14, 2020 STATE bransonglobe.com Kansas City strips marijuana possession from city code KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Kansas City will no longer punish people for marijuana possession, effectively decriminalizing it throughout much of the city. City council members voted 9-4 on Thursday to strip the crime from the city code, The Kansas City Star reported. The change does not legalize its recreational use or change Missouri law. Users can still be charged for possession by county prosecutors who decide to pursue those cases. Kansas City residents voted overwhelmingly in 2017 to eliminate jail time for possession of fewer than 35 grams of marijuana, limiting penalties to an ordinance violation and $25 fine. In Jackson County, prosecutor Jean Peters Baker had already pledged to stop charging most people for possession. But in parts of Kansas City that lie in Clay, Platte and Cass counties, people could still face state possession charges. Kansas City’s chapter of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws, which led the 2017 campaign, urged prosecutors in Clay, Platte and Cass counties to join Jackson County prosecutors in not charging low-level marijuana offenses. “Statewide reforms on this issue are needed so that we don’t have a patchwork of laws that more harshly impact some over others,” said Jessica Kelly, the group’s spokeswoman in Kansas City. ‘Girlfriend Fun’ puzzle answer key P O P B E A D N E C K L A C E G H O P S C O T C H X S L L O D R E P A P O I B M C Y Y I L S J S I T U T E M T W P L Y U E S A T T E A S T B E K E E B H R C A A A T A P S G O C Y R B P C I C T A A P B Y K T U R E C S A T O H S B D P T V B E K N O E A R N I S T T A Y E L E A E S S E N L I P R D S L U C Y A L K E L E Y C S A B P I Y N S U P R D S T I N B D I P E T E R R A B B I T W Y P P U P D N U O P M Y A I D

12 • July 12 - 14, 2020 STATE bransonglobe.com Missourians can be legally denied birth-control coverage By Mary Schuermann Kuhlman, Courtesy of Public News Service JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. - Missourians can now be legally denied birth-control coverage in their employer’s health insurance, after a new U.S. Supreme Court ruling. The seven-to-two decision sides with the Trump administration, by upholding an exemption to the Affordable Care Act requirement that health insurers cover birth control without copays. The decision means employers and universities can refuse to offer contraceptive health care in insurance policies by citing religious or moral objections. Supporters say it’s a win for religious freedom, but Mallory Schwarz - executive director of NARAL Pro-Choice Missouri - contends it’s discriminatory. “This decision jeopardizes health-care access for hundreds of thousands of Missourians who already face systemic obstacles to accessing a range of reproductive health care,” says Schwarz. “This especially impacts people of color, communities of low-income, and LGBTQ folks.” The court ruled that the Trump administration has the authority to require the exemptions, and sent the case back to the lower courts. Schwarz sees the ruling as a blow to reproductive freedom for American women, and notes that access to full reproductive health care is also on the line in Missouri. “Republican politicians in our state have spent decades enacting barrier after barrier between Missourians and affordable, accessible reproductive health care,” says Schwarz. “From birth control and family planning services, to medically unnecessary restrictions on abortion access and limiting criteria for Medicaid coverage.” There are estimates that the rule change could cause at least 70,000 women to lose insurance coverage for their birth control within a year.

bransonglobe.com STATE July 10 - 11, 2020 • 13 Pandemic renews concerns about pet population By Mary Schuermann Kuhlman Public News Service - MO JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. - Animal welfare groups say the pandemic is exacerbating the overpopulation crisis for cats and dogs. According to Lisa Lange, senior vice president of communications with “People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals,” more than six million cats and dogs enter shelters in the U.S. each year. And with COVID-19 safety protocols in place, she explains shelters are unable to let people come in for pet adoptions, or host off-site adoption events. “And yet there’s still a flow of animals coming in, made worse by people being out of a job,” said Lange. “So, we’re getting reports from around the country that people are giving up their animals because they can’t afford to keep them anymore.” A survey conducted before the pandemic estimated that 44% of Missouri pet owners struggle to afford their pets. Lange says prevention is the best solution, and her group encourages spaying and neutering for cats and dogs. According to PETA, one female dog and her puppies can result in the births of 67,000 dogs in just six years. Instead of purchasing a pet from a breeder, Lange urges Missourians to always adopt from animal shelters. Right now, many are holding appointment-based adoptions. She notes a silver lining to the pandemic has been the uptick in people becoming pet foster parents, which takes pressure off the shelter system. “Really, in the best of all possible worlds, shelters should have a small number of animals,” said Lange. “But we shouldn’t be seeing animals breeding anymore. We have far too many homeless animals, all of whom are deserving of good homes. But we need to bring that number down. “ She adds that low-cost and free spay-and-neuter programs, often available through humane societies or veterinarians, are key to the overpopulation crisis. And she says people should encourage their local governments to subsidize these programs. Here in the Tri-Lakes, animal shelters have also seen many pets relinquished or abandoned when their owners can no longer care for them. Two such animals were featured in Friday’s edition of the Branson Globe. Contact the TriLakes Humane Society in Reeds Spring at (417) 272-8113.

14 • July 12 - 14, 2020 STATE bransonglobe.com MDC says watch cavities in trees to spot wildlife By Bill Graham, Missouri Dept. of Conservation Kansas City, Mo. – A freshly chipped, round hole in the tree limb’s outer bark led to a newly excavated cavity, revealing a woodpecker’s handiwork. The woodpecker chipped inside the dead locust tree limb this spring and created a cavity, possibly for a nest site. But a thunderstorm snapped the limb from the tree. The limb broke apart at the hollow spot when it hit the ground, a loss to the woodpecker but a lucky new hideaway for a ground-dwelling creature. Nature sometimes tears down what it builds, but nothing is ever wasted, including a hole in a tree. The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) suggests that observing cavities in trees alive or dead, standing or fallen, is a good way for people to spot watchable wildlife using a hole as home. Creatures use hollows created by fungi, woodpeckers, and squirrels as nesting and hiding spots. “I’m sure if the locust limb had not fallen a woodpecker or squirrel would have used the cavity,” said Krista Noel, MDC natural history biologist. Missouri has more than 20 species of birds that use tree cavities as nesting or roosting sites. They have neighbors. Squirrels, raccoons, bats, bees, and other creatures also use hollows in trees as a place to hide or live. Tree cavities can be small or big enough for a bear. Fungi can enter a tree through a damaged spot and consume heartwood without killing the tree. Nutrients that keep the hollow tree’s branches and leaves alive moves up and down in the outer rings of the tree trunk, not in the center. Big trees that appear solid throughout when standing often turn out to be hollow. A black bear may make a large, hollow oak blown down by a summer storm its winter den site. Woodpeckers are pioneers at creating small hollows in limbs or chipping into a tree trunk. They may peck away at dead wood looking for insects to eat and keep going. Squirrels, a member of the rodentia order of wildlife, may use their strong teeth to gnaw larger the hole a woodpecker started. Other birds or small mammals finding a cavity unoccupied may move in for a season, to nest in spring or ride out the winter cold. The hollowed locust limb that fell to the ground can be used, too. Perhaps a lizard or skink needs a hiding spot? “Even on the ground, whether in the woods or a fencerow, a wood cavity still serves as shelter for smaller animals,” Noel said. “I can see a mouse using it for shelter on the ground or perhaps a toad. A snake might use it to escape the heat of the day temporarily, and of course insects would use it.” A dead limb or tree trunk that poses a possible hazard to people and property should be removed. But if a dead tree, or at least the trunk, can be safely left standing in the woods or yards, they serve watchable wildlife, such as bluebirds. For more information about how den trees and snags serve wildlife, visit https://short.mdc.mo.gov/Z8h. A woodpecker carved holes in this locust limb, one big enough for a nest cavity. When a thunderstorm dropped it to the ground, the cavities became available for ground-dwelling animals to use as shelter. Photo by Bill Graham, Missouri Department of Conservation

bransonglobe.com STATE JEFFERSON CITY – Though not as dramatic as the name would imply, pavement “blowups” are the summer’s version of potholes, created by a combination of moisture, weakening pavement and temperatures consistently reaching 90 degrees or more across the state. The Missouri Department of Transportation urges motorists to stay aware of road surfaces during these hot summer days. Pavement blow-ups are fractures that occur when a roadway surface expands at a crack or joint where moisture has seeped in. That crack weakens the pavement and the heat causes the pavement to buckle and warp, creating holes in the surface. Despite the term, the pavement does not actually explode. “Since it is difficult to know where or when a pavement blow-up will happen, our maintenance staff continually monitors road conditions on state routes,” said MoDOT State Maintenance Director Natalie Roark. “When you encounter a blow-up in the road, slow down and report the location to MoDOT as soon as possible so our maintenance crews can make repairs. Remember, never make a cellphone call from behind the wheel. Buckle Up Phone Down.” Be alert to MoDOT crews making emergency roadway repairs. Slow down and move over for maintenance workers and other emergency personnel. It’s the law. Motorists can call MoDOT’s toll-free customer service center to report pavement blow-ups at 1-888-ASK-MODOT (2756636). Plan your summer trip at MO on the GO, MoDOT’s suite of mobile information tools that shares the latest news on work zones, road conditions and traffic incidents. You can access it online at modot.org/mo-go. July 12 - 14, 2020 • 15 Pavement blow-ups could become more prevalent during summer months Hot temperatures can cause bumpy roads.

16 • July 12 - 14, 2020 SPORTS CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — NASCAR will move its August road course race from Watkins Glen in upstate New York because of state health restrictions, and the event will shift instead to the road course at Daytona International Speedway. The move means the Cup Series will make its debut on Daytona’s road course, which is used by the IMSA sports car series and incorporates part of the famed 2.5-mile oval. The race on Aug. 16 was necessary to move from Watkins Glen because NASCAR cannot meet New York’s quarantine requirements for out-ofstate visitors. “This is an unprecedented time in the history of our nation and Watkins Glen International,” racetrack President Michael Printup said. “The dynamic situation we are all confronting is impacting our daily lives and activities in unimaginable ways.” NASCAR will return to Daytona two weeks later as scheduled for the regular season finale on the oval. The Aug. 29 event is unchanged from the original 2020 schedule that has been patched back together following a 10-week shutdown because of the coronavirus pandemic. NASCAR said Wednesday it will determine if fans are allowed at Cup races on a market-by-market basis, in accordance with local and state guidelines. NASCAR is expected to run its Nov. 8 season finale as scheduled, barring changes to health protocols during the 10-week playoff series. The revisions announced Wednesday cover six Cup races at three tracks. Michigan International Speedway will host a doubleheader before NASCAR’s debut on the Daytona road course. After that race, Dover International Speedway will host a doubleheader, and the playoff field will be finalized the next week at Daytona.

(AP Photo/Julie Jacobson, File) NASCAR was not scheduled to compete on the road course at Daytona until next February in the exhibition Busch Clash to kick off the season. But many of the ideas for next year’s schedule have been forced into the present as NASCAR attempts to complete its 38-race schedule. bransonglobe.com NASCAR moving Watkins Glen race to Daytona road course The All-Star race next Wednesday night at Bristol Motor Speedway will be the fourth midweek race since NASCAR resumed on May 17 and just the second time in event history the race won’t be held at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Track officials shifted the race to Tennessee, where up to 30,000 fans will be able to attend, because North Carolina is not allowing large gatherings. Pocono already hosted Cup races on consecutive days, so Michigan and Dover make for three doubleheader weekends this season. The Cup Series also had its first doubleheader with IndyCar last weekend at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. NASCAR has adopted one-day shows without practice or qualifying, and the starting lineups have been set by random draws or inversions based on the last race’s finishing order. Many of the elements NASCAR was forced into trying in 2020 could be seen on next year’s schedule. NASCAR will race Sunday at Kentucky Speedway. It will be the 13th Cup race since NASCAR resumed racing eight weeks ago.

The conference cited medical advice in making its decision and added ominously that the plan would be applied only “if the conference is able to participate in fall sports.” Big Ten Commissioner Kevin Warren said it was “much easier if we’re just working with our Big Ten institutions” in terms of things like scheduling and traveling. “We may not have sports in the fall,” Warren told the Big Ten Network. “So we just wanted to make sure that this was the next logical step to always rely on our medical experts to keep our student-athletes at the center of all of our decisions and make sure that they are as healthy as they possibly can be from a mental, a physical, an emotional health and wellness standpoint.” There has been deep unease that the pandemic will deal a blow to fall sports after wiping out hundreds of games, including March Madness, this past spring. More than a dozen schools have reported positive tests for the virus among athletes in the past month but the bad news picked up this week as the Ivy League canceled all fall sports and Stanford announced it was cutting 11 varsity sports. The Big Ten decision is the biggest yet because Bowl Subdivision football games — more than 40 of them, all moneymakers in different ways — were simply erased. And the move didn’t wash away fears the entire fall season could be in jeopardy. “I am really concerned, that is the question of the day,” Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith said on a conference call after the announcement. “I was cautiously optimistic. bransonglobe.com Big Ten scraps nonconference football games due to pandemic I’m not even there now.” “By limiting competition to other Big Ten institutions, the conference will have the greatest flexibility to adjust its own operations throughout the season and make quick decisions in real-time based on the most current evolving medical advice and the fluid nature of the pandemic,” the Big Ten said. The other big conferences, the SEC, ACC, Big 12 and Pac-12, have all indicated they intend to play fall sports.

bransonglobe.com SPORTS CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Jimmie Johnson is just as confused as everyone else about his plight with the coronavirus. A positive test caused the seven-time NASCAR champion to miss the first race of his career, and it was followed three days later by a negative test. He never suffered any symptoms and was tested only after his wife, bothered by seasonal allergies, received a positive test. Was it a false positive? Were he and wife, Chani, carrying the virus for some time before their tests? He has no answers. “There’s a lot of speculation there,” Johnson said Friday, a full week after testing positive. “I’m the most frustrated person out there, especially living in a world of facts that we do. To not have the facts drives me bananas.” Johnson sat out last Sunday’s race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, which snapped his streak of 663 consecutive starts, longest among active drivers. But he tested negative Monday and Tuesday and was cleared by NASCAR to race again this weekend at Kentucky Speedway. That first negative test sent his constantly changing emotions to a different level. “My first response was just anger. I started cussing and used every cuss word that I knew of and I think invented a few new ones,” Johnson said Friday. “It was just so weird — the anger — because I’ve been asymptomatic. Anger hits. And then speculation in my mind. And then it’s, ‘Wait a second, there is nothing good that can come of this. No one knows. I don’t know. It’s just time to move on. ’ “Then I got very excited and starting looking at the facts that I’ve only missed one race,” he added. “I feel like I am more on the optimistic side of things and out of the dark head space that I was in and moving in the right direction.” Both and he and his wife isolated from their two young daughters as he waited to be tested again. He said Chani Johnson feels fine and, aside from some allergies, is asymptomatic. He is certain he is fit to race, and tested himself in the Colorado mountains this week. “I feel great. I’ve been at altitude this entire time,” Johnson said. “I rode up to 10,500 feet on a bicycle and felt perfectly fine.” Johnson is scheduled to retire from full-time NASCAR racing at the end of this season and had never missed a race in his 19-year Cup career before sitting out the Brickyard 400. The 44-year-old was required to have two negative COVID-19 tests in a 24-hour span and be cleared by a doctor to return to racing. NASCAR approved him to return to the No. 48 Chevrolet on Wednesday. He is 15th in the Cup standings, just inside the playoff cutoff mark, and he received a waiver for the championship race should he qualify. He’s eager to get back to work after a trying week with his family. “Just emotional and a journey that you go through worrying about your safety, your family’s safety, watching a race with somebody else in your race car and the emotion that goes with that,” Johnson said. “Coming to grips with the reality of all that has been challenging, but I’ve always subscribed to growing through these tough moments, and I feel like I’m a smarter, stronger person today experiencing all this.” NASCAR President Steve Phelps last weekend said the series believes its procedures are working, and the sanctioning body has not revealed any July 12 - 14, 2020 • 19 Jimmie Johnson confused, frustrated after virus scare testing results. Two teams have confirmed positive tests among unidentified employees, but Johnson is the only known driver to seek a test. He declined to give his opinion on NASCAR’s protocols. “I don’t know how to add clarity or advice in what changes need to take place,” he said. “I unfortunately feel that there’s a lot to still be learned in the professional and medical field on this and I, like everyone else, are eagerly awaiting on that instruction and that knowledge, a vaccine, better testing, better screening. “There’s just more questions than answers for a lot of us. I certainly don’t have the answers for everybody.” Jimmie Johnson celebrates in Victory Lane after winning the NASCAR Clash auto race at Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Fla.

It’s the highest one-day jump since May 26 when state data showed an increase of 795 new positive cases. The number of deaths rose Friday by three to 742. While some of the increase in new cases may be a result of increased testing, the data also shows the state’s percentage of positive cases has risen to 9.3%, the highest level since late May.

Comet streaking past Earth, providing spectacular show Comet Neowise soars in the horizon of the early morning sky in this view from the near the grand view lookout at the Colorado National Monument west of Grand Junction, Colo., Thursday, July 9, 2020. (Conrad Earnest via AP) CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) — A newly discovered comet is streaking past Earth, providing a stunning nighttime show after buzzing the sun and expanding its tail. Comet Neowise swept within Mercury’s orbit a week ago. Its close proximity to the sun caused dust and gas to burn off its surface and create an even bigger debris tail. Now the comet is headed our way, with closest approach in two weeks. NASA’s Neowise infrared space telescope discovered the comet in March. Scientists involved in the mission said the comet is about 3 miles (5 kilometers) across. Its nucleus is covered with sooty material dating back to the origin of our solar system 4.6 billion years ago. The comet will be visible around the world until mid-August, when it heads back toward the outer solar system. While it’s visible with the naked eye in dark skies with little or no light pollution, binoculars are needed to see the long tail, according to NASA. Astronauts aboard the International Space Station have already caught a glimpse. NASA’s Bob Behnken shared a spectacular photo of the comet on social media late Thursday, showing central Asia in the background and the space station in the foreground. “Stars, cities, spaceships, and a comet!” he tweeted from orbit.

bransonglobe.com NATIONAL NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Dixie Chicks are no more. Breaking their ties to the South, The Chicks are stepping into a new chapter in their storied career with their first new music in 14 years. The Texas trio of Emily Strayer, Martie Maguire and Natalie Maines have been teasing new music for a year, and “Gaslighter” finally drops on July 17 when the nation is embroiled in divisive politics, cancel culture and reckoning with inequality. The timing is right for their voices to be heard again. “It just seemed like a good reflection on our times,” said Maines. “In 20 years, we’ll look back at that album cover and title and remember exactly what was going on in the country right then.” “Gaslighter” is a slang term, inspired by a 1944 Ingrid Bergman film, to describe a psychological abuser who manipulates the truth to make a person feel crazy. In recent years, it’s been used to describe powerful men like Harvey Weinstein or Donald Trump. “I think most everybody has a gaslighter in their lives somewhere,” said Strayer. “But, yeah, it was so weird how it echoes our current administration.” As the best-selling female group in RIAA history, The Chicks appealed to generation of country fans that saw themselves in the band’s stories, whether it was “Wide Open Spaces” or “Cowboy Take Me Away.” After three independent albums, their first major label record in 1998 sold 13 million copies in the U.S. alone. With Maguire on fiddle and Strayer on banjo, they were all steeped in bluegrass and classic country, but relished in fun country-pop on crossover songs like “Goodbye Earl.” They were country music’s next big thing until suddenly the door was slammed on them. In 2003, as then-President George Bush was preparing to invade Iraq, the trio were playing a show in London when Maines announced they were ashamed that the president was from Texas. The fallout became country music lore, a warning to stay away from political talk, especially of the liberal kind. They were booed on awards shows, radio stations pulled their music off the air and fans destroyed their CDs. Maguire only recently showed her daughters the 2006 documentary called “Shut Up and Sing” that showed how the backlash affected them behind the scenes. “I was putting off showing them because I have one that’s 11 and I just thought she was a little young,” Maguire said. “I thought she might be upset by just the death threat stuff.” Instead, her daughters, living in a social media generation when everyone is afforded an opinion, were confused by the reaction to Maines’ tame comments compared to the vitriolic criticism lobbed by politicians and pundits every day. “And it was just funny hearing 16- and 11-year-olds going, ‘Why? What? Wait. She said that? And people got so mad?’” said Maguire. The trio are all now parents of teenagers when youth activists are taking the lead on gun control, climate change and racial inequality. Their song “March March,” which was released the same day they announced they were dropping the word Dixie from their name, was inspired by student-led demonstrations over gun control in 2018. On “Juliana Calm Down,” their daughters and nieces are namechecked in a song that encourages young women to keep their heads held high when struggling through life’s obstacles. Maines is speaking to her two teenage boys on “Young Man,” a song for divorced parents who feel like they’ve let down their kids. Still fans have been quick try to associate very specific lyrics from “Gaslighter” to Maines’ contentious divorce to actor Adrian Pasdar. Between the three women, they’ve had five divorces, so they said people shouldn’t read too literally into the words. “I think people had it in their minds that this album is about one thing and one thing only, and it’s not,” said Maines. “People are jumping to conclusions.” But it’s unlikely the fans who turned their back on The Chicks 17 years ago are going to feel any differJuly 12 - 14, 2020 • 21 With new name and album, The Chicks’ voices ring loud again ent about the band’s return. “We have to say things when the time is right to say them, and we’ve been quiet for 10 years, so get ready,” Strayer said with a laugh.

22 • July 12 - 14, 2020 CURIOUSITIES Doggy deliveries help Colombians shop during pandemic MEDELLIN, Colombia (AP) — Eight-year-old Eros trots through the streets of this hilly city several times a day with a straw basket in his jaws, taking vegetables, fruit and packaged foods to customers of the El Porvenir mini-market. The chocolate Labrador retriever is paid with treats and massages of his furry head. Eros carries a basket of bread from the El Porvenir mini-market as he makes a delivery on his own in Medellin, Colombia. The eight-yearold chocolate Labrador remembers the names of customers who have previously rewarded him with treats, and with some practice, he has learned to go to their houses on his own. “He helps us to maintain social distancing,” said Eros’ owner Maria Natividad Botero, amid the COVID-19 pandemic. (AP Photo/Luis Benavides) “He helps us to maintain social distancing” says Eros’ owner Maria Natividad Botero. “And people love it when we send the dog.” Eros wasn’tt always a star. He was accepted into the family begrudgingly by Botero after repeated requests by her son to adopt a dog. But Botero and the rest of the family quickly fell in love with the pup. And when they opened a mini market four years ago in the hilltop neighborhood of Tulipanes, he started to accompany Botero and her kids to make deliveries. Eros doesn’t know how to read addresses. But he remembers the names of customers who have previously rewarded him with treats. And with some practice, he has learned to go to their houses on his own. “He knows the names of five or six of our customers” Botero said. “So I send the merchandise with a receipt in the basket, and my customers pay me through a bank transfer.” As COVID-19 cases in Colombia have climbed to more than 3,000 new infections each day, city governments are imposing social distancing measures, and limiting the number of days per week that people can go shopping. That’s turned delivery workers into an increasingly important part of the economy. Eros might not know that he’s become an essential worker. But he is happy to help his owners and collect his daily pay. “He’s quite a glutton” Botero said. “He won’t leave your house until you give him a treat.” Firm to offer balloon rides from Alaska to the edge of space ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — A company wants to use an advanced balloon to fly customers from Earth’s surface in Alaska to the highest reaches of the planet’s atmosphere. Florida-based startup firm Space Perspective plans to use the Pacific Spaceport Complex in Kodiak to serve as one of the launch sites for the vehicle, called the Spaceship Neptune, The Anchorage Daily News reported Sunday. The balloon rides will be manned by a flight crew taking eight pasbransonglobe.com sengers in a pressurized capsule suspended beneath a hydrogen balloon the size of a football stadium. Passengers could pay an estimated $125,000 for a six-hour journey. Mark Lester, CEO of Alaska Aerospace Corp., said the high-altitude rides will be available from Kodiak in a few years and will support Alaska tourism. “You will have people from around the world who want to come to Alaska and see the northern lights from the edge of space,” Lester said. Passengers will begin with a twohour ascent to about 19 miles above Earth. They will then be able to post on social media about the experience or send data. “Neptune then makes a twohour descent under the balloon and splashes down, where a ship retrieves the passengers,” along with the capsule and balloon, Alaska Aerospace said. Capsule recovery would occur in the waters around Kodiak Island and the Aleutian Island chain, depending upon the seasonal wind patterns. The balloon design is derived from technology NASA has used for decades to fly large research telescopes, Space Perspective said. EXP. 7/31/20
