Whether she brightened up your commute or prompted you to slap the clock radio and go back to sleep, Janet Ellis was always there to start the day with the “hup-de-do” known as a morning show on KRZK/KOMC radio. On Friday, July 31, Ellis will hang up her headphones and head in to retirement. According to station manager and long-time on-air partner, Steve Willoughby, Ellis had an immediate impact on the stations and the Branson area. “She knew proper grammar, that really helped a whole bunch. And she could remember names, that was really, really amazing,” Willoughby laughed. “She’s always had a consistent desire to do better for people.” Ellis and Willougby hosted “Steve & Janet in the Morning” for 22 years on KRZK. In 2016, Willoughby stepped away to do other things, and Janet continued the morning show with “Janet & Friends from Ellis Island.” Over the last four years, Ellis has battled - and defeated - breast cancer, helping and inspiring many by sharing her personal story.

bransonglobe.com LOCAL Cucumbers and onions: a fresh taste of summer By Mommy’s a Good Cooker Nothing says summertime more than fresh cucumbers and onions! This delightfully simple salad is in our fridge from the first of June until the last of September. There’s just nothing like a burger on the grill, corn on the cob, and cucumbers and onion for supper. I’m always surprised when people tell me they don’t like cucumbers and onions. I think many just have not had them prepared correctly. If you don’t like them all by themselves as a salad, try putting them on a burger, a brat or other sandwich. So good! Years ago, our neighbor lady gave me her favorite recipe for cucumbers and onions. That recipe quickly became my go-to. Here it is... Mom’s Cukes You need: 5 cucumbers 1 sweet Vidalia onion 1 cup vinegar 1/2 cup sugar 1 tsp. celery seed ground black pepper to taste Peel and thinly slice the cucumbers and the onion into a large glass or plastic container. In a separate bowl, mix the rest of the ingredients until the sugar is dissolved. Pour over the cucumbers and onions and mix. Cover and allow to marinate at least two hours. I like to give mine 24 hours. Serve. How simple is that? Here are a few tips to make your cucumbers and onions even better: • You can use red onion if you prefer, but the red color will disappear in the vinegar. • Get some pretty red color by adding grape tomatoes right before serving. • DO NOT USE OIL! One shortcut I’ve seen is to mix the cucumbers and onions with bottled Italian salad dressing, or a vinagrette. Resist this urge! The oil will make your veggies slimy and gross. • Don’t reuse marinade; make a fresh batch each time you have fresh veggies to use. Next week we’ll continue using up our supply of cucumbers with my aunt & uncle’s famous dill pickle recipe.

The pandemic represents what folklore holds as the Chinese character for crisis: a “dangerous opportunity.” As supply-side econoLETTERS Dear Editor, As President of Cox Medical Center Branson, I’m contacting you to share evidence on the importance of masking with the paper and the public. While there is no science to indicate when it’s too early to mask, our experts say science can tell us when it’s too late. We’re getting close to the point when it’s time to act. At CoxHealth, we experienced a 43% growth in total positive lab results last week and an overall increase of 10% positive rates when comparing July cases with June cases. The increased hospital testing, rapidly growing number of virus cases in Stone and Taney counties, strained regional hospitals, and an increase of people mist Paul Romer first observed, “a crisis is a terrible thing to waste.” The surface tension between maintaining both physical and fiscal health points to a deeper underlying crisis. It offers a path out of both the surface and the deep crisis. What deep crisis? Prof. Daniel Dellaposta observed recently in the American Sociological Review, “The structure of U.S. opinion has shifted in ways suggesting troubling implications for proponents of political and social pluralism.” Only a threat of the complexity and magnitude of the pandemic is powerful enough to bring hereditary enbeing tested at our Mobile Testing Unit (MTU) from 4/day at the beginning of July to 30/day as of last week, are signs for action. Our positive results are increasing because the disease is beginning to grow rapidly in prevalence, not because we are increasing the number of people we are testing. This is leading us to great concerns for our communities’ health and future. Bottom line, the virus is rapidly growing in our area. Our local and regional health departments are reporting surges in cases. Northwest Arkansas is in a surge and Joplin appears to be in the throes of a similar surge. Additionally, nearby hospitals are becoming strained and sending cases they emies, like us, together. One of us is the cofounder of MoveOn.org, the other the co-founder of TheCapitalistLeague.com. I, Ralph, the conservative Republican, recognize my adversary Joan’s authentic compassion in holding that without a coordinated response, including government action, to flatten the curve she would have reasonable grounds to fear waves of infections that could overwhelm our medical personnel and capacity, intensifying both loss of life and economic devastation. This is a counsel of practical compassion. Not tyranny. cannot handle to CoxHealth. Our neighboring communities have increased their case numbers so high it has made national news, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is on the ground. While CoxHealth has physical capacity at this point, and plenty of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), we have limitations on important medications such as Remdesivir. The distribution of this drug is controlled by the state government due to its scarcity; we have enough for ten patients at this point. We also have limited access to convalescent plasma. Many of our most acute patients need treatment by both therapies to have a chance at a positive outcome.

Not everyone has sufficient resources, nor is the government capable of indefinitely funding an economy many times larger than the resources it can responsibly command. This is a counsel of practical compassion. Not callousness. SEE COVID-19, PAGE 7 Myths are circulating that wearing a mask can make you pass out, or that if you can hold your breath for 10 seconds, you do not have the virus. Neither of these are true. There is no compelling evidence that masking causes harm, yet there is compelling evidence that masking can slow the transmission rate (look at the Springfield Great Clips episode). That’s why we believe the next logical step to combat COVID-19 is to put a city masking ordinance in place as soon as possible. It has become clear in city after city that once this disease gains momentum, the time to mitigate has most often already passed – and occurs after hospiSEE LETTERS, PAGE 7 @BransonGlobe BransonGlobe @BransonGlobe #Branson Globe

bransonglobe.com OPINION • LETTERS Continued from page 6 tals become overwhelmed. We ask that everyone help us disrupt the spread of this disease and protect each other through the simple act of masking. Hopefully, • COVID-19 Continued from page 6 Let’s see each other as allies Our survival appears at stake. Thus, to paraphrase a wise insight of second wave feminism: the political becomes personal. The political class now politically weaponizes everything. Democrats vilify Republicans as taking reckless life-and-death risks by premature openings. Republicans demonize Democrats for inflicting unwarranted and possibly catastrophic damage to our ability to subsist economically. So let’s experiment with seeing one another as allies facing a mutual enemy, the novel coronavirus. Our respectively hated and feared political leaders really are not the primary enemy. (Yes, assuredly we will slug that out Nov.) The primary enemy is the virus. It confronted (and confronts) our leaders, left and right, with huge unknowns. Of course, people are entitled to their political opinions. That said, common humanity calls for us to tone down the contempt. “Kill the ump” style heckling is better suited to baseball than it is to a truly mortal threat. Physical and fiscal health are not antithetical. To get both will require greater trust and trustworthiness in government, in media, in our communities and in what Ben Franklin, during the Constitutional Convention, called “the virtue and spirit of the common people.” And, yes, trust in the good faith in our political opponents. this will buy us time for the advancement of more therapies and even a vaccine to protect our communities. Sincerely, William K. Mahoney President of Cox Medical Center Branson That the left and right disagree is neither novel nor interesting. The interesting thing is that we represent proof-of-concept that both sides can show respect for one another and are willing to work together against a common foe. So, are we going to keep politically weaponizing the pandemic (as we have weaponized practically everything else)? We will remain passionate foes on many issues. The pandemic is fundamentally different. It is a common enemy and a mortal one. There are judgment calls about priorities and what measures to take. That said, neither of us knows anyone who does not believe in the importance of protecting both lives and livelihoods. We must, and can, work together. American independence was predicated on the self-evident truth that foremost among our unalienable rights are both life and liberty. Governments are instituted to protect these rights. We demand both values be fully honored. This is not paradoxical. We’ve gotten out of the habit of working together even where we agree. That is the deeper existential crisis the pandemic brings to light. That said, the pandemic is so epic that it compels cooperation. Knowing that we are on the “same team,” we can pull America out of the wreckage of lives and livelihood the pandemic has wrought. Rediscovering that there are areas in which we can fruitfully cooperate, perhaps our cooperation in the face of the pandemic could transform the future of politics.

The legislation, sponsored by State Sen. Tony Luetkemeyer, R-Parkville, also protects homeowners from runaway property tax assessments. “At a time when Missouri residents are struggling to recover from economic hardships, it’s important that they keep every dollar possible,” Sen. Luetkemeyer said. “This legislation addresses several areas of taxation to allow Missourians to keep more of their hard-earned money.” Senator Luetkemeyer’s legislation to exclude the $1,200 coronavirus stimulus checks from state income tax calculations was added to a bill he sponsored to reform property assessments in Missouri. The bill signed by the governor also establishes a new timeline for property assessment notices to ensure taxpayers have time to appeal increases. The bill also requires county assessors to conduct a physical inspection of real estate prior to increasing a property’s assessment more than 15%, and shifts the burden of establishing higher property values to assessors. These measures were introduced by Senator Luetkemeyer to combat assessment abuses during the 2019 assessment cycle. Senator Tony Luetkemeyer looks on as Gov. Mike Parson signs Senate Bill 676.

bransonglobe.com STATE Courtesy senate.mo.gov On Tuesday, July 14, Missouri Governor Mike Parson signed House Bill 1963 into law. This legislation dealt with various transportation related-bills, including Senate Bill 590, proposed by Republican State Senator Eric Burliso,n which lifts the requirement that everyone operating a motorcycle or motortricycle must wear a helmet. The bill signed by the governor also has an age requirement of 26 years to ride without a helmet and the rider has to meet certain health insurance standards. In 2019, a similar proposal was approved by the General Assembly as a part of a larger legislative package, but was ultimately vetoed by the governor. According to communication from Burlison’s office, the senator “was thrilled” to see helmet legislation signed into law. “This is an issue I have been working on for several years, and I am humbled and proud to see it finally become a reality for so many of the motorcycle riders in our state,” Burlison said. “In my opinion, wearing a helmet should be a personal choice. I have heard from countless experienced motorcycle riders that they prefer not to wear a helmet, and they believe it should be up to the rider as to whether or not they wear a helmet.” Over the past several years, Burlison believe Missouri’s helmet requirement may have had a “negative effect on our state’s bottom line. Several of our neighboring states do not require individuals to wear a helmet, and since Missouri did, I believe it may have caused bikers to avoid driving through Missouri entirely. By lifting this requirement, like our neighboring states, I believe we are putting our state on an equal playing field with its neighbors when it comes to attracting motorcycle riders to the ShowMe State.” Your Branson Area Weather Source Loving The Ozarks KEEP CALM AND WASH YOUR HANDS WED 94 Partly Cloudy Slight Chance For Showers 30% 72 Branson Area 5 Day Outlook THU FRI While Burlison is pleased to see this policy change and anticipates a positive effect on tourism, he ultimately believes lifting the helmet requirement is about protecting personal liberties. “As an elected official, I will always be committed to protecting the freedoms enjoyed by every Missourian.

Grant amounts are initially limited to $50,000, and organizations applying must incur or have incurred costs due to COVID-19 between March 1, 2020 and November 15, 2020. Applications will consider industry, timely use of funds, and availability of funds. DED will begin accepting applications for this grant on July 15, 2020. The department is focused on assisting the hardest hit industries including retail trade, accommodation, food service, and health care, in addition to family-owned farms. However, this grant is not limited to these industries. For more information about this program and more, visit showmestrong.mo.gov. Have a news tip? Send it to us at info@ branson globe.com

bransonglobe.com STATE Courtesy Missouri Dept. of Economic Development JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – Today Governor Parson announced nearly $50 million to support broadband expansion across Missouri, including support directed at telehealth and education. The Governor also signed house bill 1768, which expands the state’s existing Missouri Broadband Grant Program until 2027. Funding for the new programs comes in large part from the Coronavirus Relief Fund and is aimed at improving resiliency and aiding in the COVID-19 response. “Providing Missourians essential services during this time is one of our top priorities,” Governor Mike Parson said. “Ensuring citizens have appropriate access to telehealth and education and that they are able to telework is critical. These are not optional services, and we want to do our best to increase connectivity across the state.” Currently, an estimated 300,000 Missouri households, 195,000 K-12 students, and 54,000 businesses and farms lack access to high speed internet. The expansion includes several new initiatives. Emergency Broadband Investment: This initiative allocates $20 million to establish a reimbursement program for broadband providers. It will assist providers with construction costs for new broadband expansion to households with students or vulnerable populations. By November of 2020, this program plans to make more than 10,000 new connections in unserved and underserved areas of the state. Telehealth: $5.25 million will support connectivity for telehealth services for vulnerable populations. In partnership with Missouri Telehealth Network, located with the University of Missouri – Columbia’s School of Medicine, more than 12,500 hotspots will be secured for use by the Federally Qualified Health Centers and the Community Mental Health Centers. Libraries: The Office of the State Librarian within the Secretary of State’s office will deploy $2.5 million to implement and administer a grant program for Missouri’s libraries to access resources for hotspots and Wi-Fi enabled devices to support telehealth and students of higher education. K-12 Distance Learning: The Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education will allocate $10 million of the Coronavirus Relief Fund to Local Education Agencies (LEAs) to seek reimbursement for eligible costs to increase student connectivity. Higher Education Distance Learning: The Department of Higher Education and Workforce Development will allocate $10 million of the Coronavirus Relief Fund to public institutions to upgrade the campus broadband networks, offer students access to Wi-Fi enabled devices or hotspots, and enhance learning management systems. Broadband Technical Assistance Request: The Missouri Association of Councils of Government (MACOG) and DED have partnered together to apply for nearly $615,000 in grant support from the Economic Development Administration (EDA) to support a pilot project for Broadband Modeling and Engineering Feasibility Plans for up to 24 counties or 8 regional clusters. “Improving Missouri’s digital infrastructure is essential to the resiliency of our economy in this pandemic and beyond,” Department of Economic Development Director Rob Dixon said. “By providing these essential resources, we are better able to work toward economic recovery, and help Missourians prosper.” “Our public colleges and universities have been working hard to help all students gain access to remote learning. We are grateful there is funding to address these issues. We know going forward this will continue to be important to reduce barriers for our students as they July 17 - 18, 2020 • 15 Nearly $50 million in funds to aid in broadband expansion, COVID-19 response persevere in their studies,” said Zora Mulligan, Commissioner of Higher Education.

16 • July 17 - 18, 2020 SPORTS KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City Chiefs and Pro Bowl defensive tackle Chris Jones agreed to a four-year contract that could be worth up to $85 million on Tuesday, the latest in a lavish spending spree by the Super Bowl champions as they continue to lock up their core pieces as training camp approaches. The deal for Jones, which comes on the heels of a record-setting 10-year extension for quarterback Patrick Mahomes, includes $60 million in guarantees, a person familiar with the terms told The Associated Press. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the Chiefs had not announced the extension. The two sides had been working on an extension since last year. But they were never very close, even when Jones showed his displeasure by skipping the entirety of the offseason program — including the mandatory summer minicamp. Kansas City Chiefs’ Chris Jones. (AP Photo/Matt Ludtke, File) Jones returned in time for training camp, though, and his unique ability to rush the passer from the interior of the defensive line was instrumental in helping Kansas City beat the San Francisco 49ers to win its first Super Bowl in 50 years. Jones said afterward that he wanted to help the Chiefs establish a dynasty, but the euphoria of that victory in Miami soon wore off. Contract negotiations continued to stall and the Chiefs had to buy time by placing the franchise tag on Jones, and establishing a deadline of Wednesday for working out a deal. And once the contract with Mahomes was done, the Chiefs had a better idea of their salary cap situation and that allowed negotiations with Jones’ representatives to pick up. “Listen, I think (general manager) Brett Veach has done a nice job of getting and retaining our players,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid said recently, “and that’s not an easy thing to do with the way the salary cap is set up in today’s world.” The length of Jones’ contract works out for the Chiefs in that it expires before the big-money years begin for Mahomes, whose baseball-like contract could surpass $500 million total over the 12 years that he is under contract. Jones certainly has earned his own impressive financial haul during his first four seasons in the league. The second-round pick in the 2016 draft started 11 games and had two sacks as a rookie, then bumped that total to 6 1/2 sacks in Year 2. But it was the 15 1/2 sacks that he piled up while helping the Chiefs to the AFC title game in 2018 that really raised eyebrows, and put the Chiefs in the position of trying to hammer out a longterm contract for him. Jones had another nine sacks bransonglobe.com AP source: Chiefs, Jones agree to 4-year, $85M extension last year despite missing three games with injuries, putting himself in an elite tier of interior pass rushers that includes Rams standout Aaron Donald and the Eagles’ Fletcher Cox. Jones hinted several weeks ago about holding out all season if the sides were unable to agree to a long-term deal. But his posts on social media over the past week had grown increasingly optimistic, and tweets over the weekend that said “I love you KC” and “vibes are unmatched” were taken by some as a sign that an extension was close. “Got my boi locked up!” Mahomes tweeted Tuesday, when news of the deal broke. Mahomes then alluded to the fact few thought it would get done given the Chiefs’ tight financial situation when he tweeted, “And yall thought we couldn’t...”

18 • July 17 - 18, 2020 SPORTS bransonglobe.com Inside the bubble, NBA players have plenty of options LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) — Every team in the NBA bubble has played golf. Most have had at least a few players go fishing. Some have taken boats out. Bowling is available for a few hours most nights. The barbers arrive for the first time later this week. And the walking trail is pretty much always occupied by coaches or players. On occasion at Walt Disney World, basketball even gets played. This is the NBA’s home away from home for the foreseeable future — and efforts are being made to make the time here fun. The so-called bubble in Central Florida is where 22 teams have settled for about a week now, where they all will remain for another month and where teams that make the playoffs will be for considerably longer. “We’re trying to just live our life,” Los Angeles Clippers coach Doc Rivers said. “Have our best Disney life.” This summer away from home isn’t ideal, for obvious reasons. Players and coaches are away from their families, many teams are missing players or other personnel because of the coronavirus, and there are daily reminders that even this well-isolated world was created during a pandemic. Medical personnel — wearing gowns, masks, gloves and plastic visors — are arriving to place a swab in everyone’s mouth and two more in their nasal passages for the next COVID-19 test. But the league is trying to make the days at Disney go a little faster, with activities available almost around the clock. And players are making the best of things; Denver even turned an off day into time for a full-team pool workout this week. “I don’t think you can ever build enough ‘we,’ enough togetherness,” Nuggets coach Michael Malone said. Golf has been the free-time hit so far; a new private driving range just for NBA player use is scheduled to open Saturday, just to keep up with their demand. A few players — including some who don’t even play golf regularly, like Miami’s Goran Dragic — figured they might as well try to learn the game. “It’ll be good for me mentally to have something else to think SEE BUBBLE, PAGE 19

bransonglobe.com SPORTS • BUBBLE Continued from page 18 about during the downtime,” said Dragic, whose wife and children returned home to the family’s native Slovenia on Wednesday. “So, I had my golf clubs sent here, just to try something new.” And, of course, there’s the food. Panned by some players upon arrival, the fare in quarantine wasn’t quite the level that NBA types are used to seeing but has generally gotten decent reviews since. Those still in quarantine at Disney get three meals dropped off outside their door each day, with an array of items to choose from in those bags. Teams have meal rooms set up with menus that were developed in cooperation with their own staffs and dietitians. And when all else fails, there are delivery options and room service offering everything from bisques to steaks to flourless chocolate cakes. “If you’re talking about it being a five-star restaurant, no, but if you talk about it being good food that you can eat and enjoy, I think it is,” New Orleans coach Alvin Gentry said. “We’re not eating off of fine china, but we’re also eating off of biodegradable containers which I think is very smart to do. Obviously, we’re not eating with silverware because that poses a threat as far as spreading the virus also.” The NBA even developed an app for the Disney life. Every team was assigned a liaison to help book outings and handle needs, and the app includes everything from how to get food delivered to how to book extra practice time. There’s a page within the app that allows players to report violations of health protocols, such as someone not wearing a mask, as well as links to mental health resources and even details on how players can register to vote if they haven’t already. In short, there are many ways to keep busy in the bubble. “I brought my bike — it’s yet to leave the room, but the thought is nice, hopefully someday I get on it,” Rivers said. “We’ve got a lot to do. It’s still not normal, but that’s fine with us. Again, we’re going to live the best Disney life that we can.” NOTES: Brooklyn’s newly signed Jamal Crawford, who will be the oldest player in the restart at 40 — a bit ahead of fellow 40-yearold Udonis Haslem of Miami — practiced with the Nets for the first time Wednesday. ... Indiana’s Victor Oladipo, who previously said he wouldn’t play in the restart, revealed Wednesday that his mind may be changing. “Coming down here and getting some practices in, getting my feet under me, going out there playing with the guys, there’s a possibility that I could play,” Oladipo said. ... The NBA slightly amended some protocols to address concerns some teams have about false positive tests for the coronavirus, adding review of an antibody test as part of the returnto-play path. The league made that announcement in a memo obtained by The Associated Press and other outlets. ... San Antonio announced July 17 - 18, 2020 • 19 that Trey Lyles had an emergency appendectomy Wednesday and will miss the remainder of the season. ... Sacramento’s De’Aaron Fox will miss 7-10 days with a sprained left ankle. He got hurt in practice Wednesday. Pelicans guard Jrue Holiday expects basketball to be the easy part of living in the NBA’s “bubble” when 22 teams gather in Central Florida to resume their suspended seasons later this month.

20 • July 17 - 18, 2020 NATIONAL TULSA, Okla. (AP) — An Oklahoma district attorney’s office dismissed two murder charges against a man whose two children died in a hot vehicle after prosecutors determined the children’s tribal history. The Tulsa County District Attorney’s Office dropped charges filed Friday against Dustin Lee Dennis, 31. He was facing two second-degree felony murder charges after the June deaths of his children, Ryan and Tegan, the Tulsa World reported. Last week, the Supreme Court ruled that a large chunk of eastern Oklahoma remains an American Indian reservation, meaning that Oklahoma prosecutors lack the authority to pursue criminal cases against American Indian defendants in parts of Oklahoma, including most of Tulsa. “To have put the effort in that law enforcement did in this investigation because of what we originally had to go through, it’s gotta be devastating for the victim — I feel bad for her,” said District Attorney Steve Kunzweiler, referencing Tegan and Ryan’s mother, a Cherokee Nation citizen who on Monday presented information about the children’s status to authorities. Court records do not identify Dennis as a tribal citizen, but federal prosecutors determined in 2010 that the government still has jurisdiction to pursue cases under the existing General Crimes Act if a tribal citizen is a victim of a crime on tribal land but the alleged perpebransonglobe.com Oklahoma drops murder charges in vehicle child deaths trator is not enrolled in one. Dennis had been released from jail on a personal recognizance bond, which Kunzweiler said last month was partly because surveillance footage showed that the children entered Dennis’ truck by themselves. A document filed against Dennis on Friday alleged that he committed child neglect by “sleeping for hours during the day when he was the sole caretaker,” which resulted in their deaths. Dennis reported that he and the children drove to the store before returning home, where he slept for four or five hours. Police said he told them he did not see the children when he woke up, but he found their bodies on his truck’s floorboard and brought them in his house. The site of the reported homicide is within the boundaries of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation. Kunzweiler said his office has contacted the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Tulsa to encourage them to review Dennis’ case.

bransonglobe.com NATIONAL Spacecraft snaps closest pictures of sun, ‘little campfires’ abound CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) — A European and NASA spacecraft has snapped the closest pictures ever taken of the sun, revealing countless little “campfires” flaring everywhere. Scientists on Thursday released the first images taken by Solar Orbiter, launched from Cape Canaveral in February. The orbiter was about 48 million miles from the sun — about halfway between Earth and the sun — when it took the stunning high-resolution pictures last month. NASA’s Parker Solar Probe is flying much closer to the sun than Solar Orbiter — too close for cameras to safely photograph the sun. Its lone camera faces away from the sun to observe the solar wind. That’s why Solar Orbiter’s new pictures showing vibrant swirls of yellow and dark smoky gray — the first images from so close and at such small scale — are so precious. The team had to create a new vocabulary to name these tiny flare-ups, said European Space Agency project scientist Daniel Muller. Muller described the observed multitude of “campfires” shooting into the corona, or sun’s crown-like outer atmosphere, as quite possibly “the tiny cousins of the solar flares that we already know.” Millions if not billions July 17 - 18, 2020 • 21 of times smaller, these tiny flares may be heating the corona, he said, long known to be hundreds of times hotter than the actual solar surface for unknown reasons. The Royal Observatory of Belgium’s David Berghmans, principal scientist of the instrument that captured the images, said he was blown away. He said his first response was: “This is not possible. It cannot be that good.” “It was really much better than we expected, but what we dared to hope for,” Berghmans said. These so-called campfires, Berghmans noted, are “literally everywhere we look.” Not yet well understood, they could be mini explosions, or nanoflares. More measurements are planned. The $1.5 billion spacecraft will tilt its orbit as the mission goes on, providing unprecedented views of the sun’s poles. This vantage point will allow it to capture the first pictures of the solar poles. Solar Orbiter will get even closer to the sun in two years. The pandemic has forced Solar Orbiter’s scientists to work from home for months. Only a few engineers are allowed at any one time inside the control center in Darmstadt, Germany. This image, provided by the European Space Agency (ESA) on Thursday, July 16, 2020, shows the Sun. (Solar Orbiter/EUI Team (ESA & NASA); CSL, IAS, MPS, PMOD/WRC, ROB, UCL/MSSL/ via AP)

22 • July 17 - 18, 2020 Deceased cat gets voter registration application in mail ATLANTA (AP) — In a presidential election year, there’s always a push to get people registered to vote. For one Atlanta family, that push got a little interesting. Ron Tims said he checked his mail Wednesday and found a voter registration application addressed to Cody Tims — his cat, who died 12 years ago. “A great cat, indoor and outdoor, loved his family, loved his neighborhood. He was 18 and a half when he passed away,” Carol Tims told WAGA-TV. The Tims were surprised, and a bit amused when they saw what Cody received in the mail. “There’s a huge push but if they’re trying to register cats, I’m not sure who else they’re trying to register. I’m not sure if they’re trying to register dogs, mice, snakes,” Carol Tims said. The Secretary of State’s Office said the application did not come from its office and that third-party groups often use mailing lists to get names and addresses. “Third-party groups all over the country are targeting Georgia to help register qualified individuals,” the Secretary of State’s Office said in a statement. “This group makes you wonder what these out-of-town CURIOUSITIES activists bransonglobe.com are really doing. Make no mistake about it, this office is dedicated to investigating all types of fraud.” The Secretary of State’s Office said it’s quite sure that even if Cody were still alive and showed up at the polls, he wouldn’t be allowed to vote since he does not have a license or state ID. If you’re wondering how Cody would have voted if he could go to the polls. His owner said he was a DemoCAT. Vintage Super Mario Bros. video game sells for $114,000 DALLAS (AP) — An unopened copy of a vintage Super Mario Bros. video game has been sold for $114,000 in an auction that underscored the enduring popularity of entertainment created decades ago. A bidder who wished to remain anonymous snapped up an early version of the pioneering Super Mario Bros. game released in 1985 for Nintendo’s NES console during an auction conducted Friday by Dallas-based Heritage Auctions. The $114,000 price eclipsed Heritage Auctions’ previous record amount for a video game, which was a $100,150 bid made early last year for an unopened copy of the same game. The Super Mario Bros. copy that sold for a new record was part of a collection of video games from the 1980s and 1990s that sold to various buyers for nearly $700,000, which was well above Heritage Auction’s initial target of about $500,000. Other titles auctioned off included “Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out!” a 1987 video game based on the former former heavyweight boxing champion, that sold for $50,400. Police: Delaware shop owner threw pizza at attempted robber GREENWOOD, Del.
