2 • July 22 - 23, 2020 LOCAL • OLIVER Continued from page 1 ‘friends’ were a main attraction on the Branson Belle for 13 years. Oliver competed, and fared well, on the popular TV show America’s Got Talent, season 7, in 2012. “I was a top four finalist,” Oliver said. “It helped with drawing folks to the shows, and I received an offer for a my show to play a casino in Vegas, but I passed on the offer. It was was not a good move for me at the time.” Before returning to the Branson show scene, Oliver had been ‘touring’ in performing arts centers, dinner theaters and community concert series. “I still enjoy the road,” he said. “My wife and daughter join me for short trips from time to time, and I was blessed to be home between tours and shows so it did work out. The thing is I had control over my schedule. But with Branson, it turned out to be another great blessing. Playing a tourist destination, and especially Branson, is quite a bit different than a theater road date.” Oliver received a call last year from Shepherd of The Hills General Manager Jeff Johnson asking if he might be interested in playing Branson again. “I knew who he was from the Showboat days,” Johnson said. “He had a good reputation and we were able to put something together.” Ventriloquism attracted Oliver when he was a child. “As a kid I was infatuated with those little Wooden headed dummies,” he said. “They can get away with saying things everyone is thinking and they always have a charming way to make it funny.” It also brought the 10-year-old boy through a tough time. He received his first ventriloquist dummy on Christmas morning. Just three days later his father passed away from cancer. “That little Ventriloquist dummy helped me deal with my loss and sadness,” he said. “I also discovered that the little character could make other people happy too.” He began performing his “act” whenever he could. After High School he began printing his act in schools, clubs and cruise ships. As showmen know, there has to be constant changes to an act to keep audiences entertained. Todd came up with an idea that not only got attention. It changed his life. “One day I was looking at my dog and thought, ‘I bet you would have a lot to say if you could talk,’” he said. A few months later, Oliver’s Boston Terrier ‘Irving,’ premiered as ‘America’s real talking dog.’ Throughout the years there have been six ‘Irvings.’ Each one has been family pets and lived out their lives in our home.” After Irving became the famous ‘talking dog,’ Oliver’s success attracted Hollywood agents and he was asked to make appearances on David Letterman’s Ventriloquist Week, The Tonight Show, other national TV shows and some weekly series episodes. Oliver has played theaters across the country, and is glad to be back in Branson. “I’ve been very blessed. TV is great fun, but a ventriloquist makes his living doing shows,” he said. “Making families laugh together is the goal. My best memories are those of me and bransonglobe.com my family all laughing together. I want to make that happen for families across America.” Showtimes are at 11 a.m., 4 p.m. (5 p.m. after July 27) and 7 p.m. Call (417) 334-4191 City of Forsyth passes face mask ordinance By a unanimous vote at Forsyth’s Board of Alderman Meeting Monday night, the city has passed an ordinance requiring face masks be worn in the city to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

bransonglobe.com LOCAL Failed fundraiser brings tiny Stone County village together Submitted to Branson Globe What started out as a fundraiser for a storm siren has turned into a weekly meal program for a small rural community in Stone County. McCord Bend Village Trustee Chairman Mandi Carr explained that the stay-at-home order went into place just days before the village was set to raise funds for a storm siren. Between bad weather and the stay-at-home order, the fundraiser – a cookout on the river during the opening of spoonbill season - was a bust. The failed fundraiser was not the village’s biggest concern however. Village trustees found themselves with a freezer full of hamburgers and hotdogs and a community reeling from the devastating effects of the stay-at-home order, the stayat-home order that resulted from the coronavirus pandemic. “Many people in our community are low-income,” Carr said. “After the stay-at-home order was put into place, most of our residents found themselves unemployed and waiting to receive unemployment benefits.” She said many residents struggled to put food on their tables and provide meals for their children. “The food provided to families with children by the school system made a difference, but still left many gaps unfilled,” Carr explained. “There are many families without school-age children and many individuals who were unable to get to groceries due to health concerns.” The board soon decided to do what they could to help. They tapped into the village’s emergency fund and began providing hot meals to village residents, serving on average 75 meals each week. Village board members have also stepped up, volunteering, donating food and equipment. In addition to the hot meals, board members volunteered to run errands and get groceries for those at-risk. “As residents of our small community and board trustees, we know our neighbors,” Carr said.

There is dignity in hard work. There is an inner joy that can be obtained no other way than simply straining to do a job well and then knowing the satisfaction of having done just that. The work ethic is missing in many places in our country. We desperately need to teach our children not only the pleasure found in doing hard work, but the responsibility that each of us has to contribute to the betterment of the situations in which we find ourselves. How to accomplish this task is a real challenge, but it can be done. We must start when children are very young-- even as early as toddler age-- teaching the value of hard work. When a toddler picks up a toy and puts it away, that toddler needs to be praised. As mommy and daddy help the mommy and daddy work and at this age, they want to help. Little children like to help hold the vacuum cleaner with parents and even try to sweep the floor. Parents need to capitalize on this interest and let children help as much as possible. As children leave the toddler stage, chores need to be assigned and children need to be made to understand that they have a role to play in keeping the household running smoothly. At all ages, Pat Lamb. (FILE) young child pick up all toys and put them away, the parents can talk about how nice it is to have a clean room and how good it feels to see how pretty everything looks when toys are put away in the right places. Even a young toddler notices how hard children need to have responsibilities and be held to those responsibilities. To yell at children and force them to do things beyond their ability will simply make them hate to work. Keeping chores assigned commensurate with their ability and expressing satisfaction at jobs well done, will go a long way toward helping them experience pleasure in work. Too much praise for normal expectations of a child is not good. There are some things in life we need to do whether we receive praise or not. Too much praise may cause a child to think that they don’t have to do something unless they receive a reward. Also, in my opinion money should not be given to do regular chores. Children have a responsibility to do their part without pay. It is good to give an allowance simply to teach a child to plan and make purchases wisely for needs and wants, but not for doing things that they BransonGlobe Your source for local news and entertainment Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances. info@BransonGlobe.com • Phone: (417) 334-9100 • Fax: (417) 334-3767 • 1447 US Hwy. 248, Suite EE, Branson, MO 65616 BransonGlobe.com bransonglobe.com Train Up a Child: Teaching children to do their share of work should do as their responsibility in the home. I know a personnel manager of a company who told me that he loved to recruit from College of the Ozarks because those kids had a work ethic that was better than students at other places where he recruited. In the past, this part of the country has been known for its work ethic. If our children are to not only succeed, but perhaps even survive in the future, they are going to have to know how to work. It is a good idea to talk to children before they go back to school this fall and tell them how important it is for them to work hard at their school work and learn all they can to prepare themselves for their future. Ideally, a child will learn to “pitch in” and help any time help is needed anywhere when s/he is able. To let children go for years just having fun with no responsibilities, and then when they are grown expect them to suddenly change and be responsible, simply doesn’t make sense. Children must be required to work and be responsible in order to learn responsibility. It isn’t automatic!

He’s excited to return to his roots to practice family medicine at CoxHealth’s new primary care clinic in Harrison, Ark., which opens Aug.10. Dr. Branscum grew up in north central Arkansas in Marshall, a small town nestled in the Ozark Mountains in Searcy County. “My family raised beef cattle and ran a sawmill, so I would spend my summers split between the farm and the mill,” he says. “If I wasn’t working, I was playing sports with my four brothers. Like many people who grow up in this area, I definitely learned the value of hard work at an early age.” After graduating from Marshall High, he earned a scholarship to play football at Baker University in Baldwin City, Kan., where he spent two seasons. Dr. Branscum finished his degree at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville, and then attended medical school at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences in Little Rock. “I knew I wanted to be a family physician from the moment I decided to go to medical school so that I could come back to the area where I grew up,” he says. “Family medicine is such a diverse specialty and trains you to help patients of all ages in a variety of settings.

10 • July 22 - 23, 2020 STATE bransonglobe.com Dire times could worsen for Missouri families on the brink By Mary Schuermann Kuhlman, Courtesy of Public News Service JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. -- As the U.S. Senate returns to work this week, there are urgent calls for legislators to act quickly to ensure all Missouri families can meet their basic needs during and after the COVID crisis. In the next two weeks, a moratorium on evictions will expire along with federal emergency unemployment benefits. Jeanette Mott Oxford, director of policy and organizing with Empower Missouri, said that could be a double whammy for the 4-in-10 Missouri households that have someone who has lost a job in recent months. “A lot of people are having real difficulty buying all the food that they need making sure that all their rent is paid,” Mott Oxford said. “It’s a time of great instability and uncertainty; there’s just so much to worry about right now.” The U.S. House passed the HEROES Act in May, a $3 trillion aid package that includes a broad range of supports including extended unemployment benefits, hazard pay, housing assistance and funding for cities and states. However, some have strongly criticized the bill’s price tag and its provisions expanding unemployment. The HEROES Act passed on a party line vote. The executive director of the Coalition on Human Needs - a national non-profit group - Deborah Weinstein, said it will help address the unprecedented challenges families are facing. “We have not experienced anything like this for 100 years: we’ve got a stubborn disease that is keeping our economy from functioning the way it should,” Weinstein said. “We cannot let our families suffer in this way. The consequences to children are so grave.” State and local governments are facing plummeting revenues due to the crisis, and with rising COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations in Missouri, Weinstein contended it’s crucial for federal leaders to pass a relief package to help the most vulnerable. Senate Republicans are in favor of a relief bill that would provide direct stimulus payments to Americans and relief for businesses. Deborah Weinstein, executive director of the Coalition on Human Needs said it will help address the unprecedented challenges families are facing. (Special to Branson Globe)

(Shutterstock) Courtesy of MO Department of Economic Development The Missouri Department of Economic Development (DED) announced this week the launch of the PPE Production Grant Program, which is designed to increase production of personal protective equipment (PPE) needed to help contain the spread of COVID-19. The new program uses $20 million in CARES Act funds to help companies produce PPE in Missouri as part of the state’s Show Me Strong Recovery Plan. Since March, many Missouri companies have already shifted to making PPE to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. When existing businesses retool to produce PPE, it is an opportunity for Missouri to keep production local and more accessible to businesses, hospitals and healthcare providers in the state, but manufacturers often face high costs related to new machinery or hiring additional employees. The PPE Production Grant Program will help companies by awarding grant funds to reimburse companies for these costs. Eligible uses for awarded funds under the PPE Production Grant Program include purchasing equipment and retooling, upgrading, or expanding facilities to increase PPE production.

(AP) — San Francisco Giants manager Gabe Kapler plans to use his position to speak out against racial injustice and provide a voice for those who aren’t heard. Kapler and several of his players knelt during the national anthem before their 6-2 exhibition victory against the Oakland Athletics. Kapler shared his plans when he addressed the team earlier Monday, and he said everyone would be supported by the Giants no matter what they decided to do. “I wanted them to know that I wasn’t pleased with the way our country has handled police brutality and I told them I wanted to amplify their voices and I wanted to amplify the voice of the Black community and marginalized communities as well,” Kapler said. “So I told them that I wanted to use my platform to demonstrate my dissatisfaction with the way we’ve handled racism in our country. I wanted to demonstrate my dissatisfaction with our clear systemic racism in our country and I wanted them to know that they got to make their own decisions and we would respect and support those decisions. I wanted them to feel safe in speaking up.” Right fielder Jaylin Davis, who is African American, and first base coach Antoan Richardson also took a knee as shortstop Brandon Crawford stood between them with a hand on each of their shoulders. Davis held his SEE PLAYERS, PAGE 17

Much discussion went into each person’s choice, and Kapler said some of the Giants reached out to other organizations. Kapler said the Giants would continue to have such important discussions together as a team and “make them a part of the fabric of our clubhouse.” “We’ve had a lot of conversations about the anthem over the course of the last 72 hours and when I say we, I mean our coaching staff and our players,” Kapler said. “We connected with small groups of players, we connected with players individually and had meaningful conversations about this topic.” It was on the same field where former A’s catcher Bruce Maxwell in 2017 became the first major leaguer to kneel for the anthem. In San Diego, Angels reliever Keynan Middleton kneeled and raised his right fist during the national anthem before the team’s 1-0 victory over the Padres. Angels manager Joe Maddon said Middleton told him in advance he wanted to kneel, and the team was “totally supportive” of the decision. “I’m very proud that he stood up for his beliefs tonight. I really am,” Maddon said. “It’s not easy to do that, a young man like himself, being the only one out here doing that.” Kapler, beginning his first season managing the Giants after two disappointing years guiding the Phillies, didn’t say for certain how often he would kneel except that “we’re going to have 60 chances in the regular season to make the same decision that we made today, to either stand or kneel or do something different. Right now it’s another opportunity tomorrow night.” Kapler has been outspoken about social injustice and racial issues and athletes’ roles in helping spur positive change. “They felt strong about the issue so they knelt,” A’s pitcher Mike Fiers said. Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick started taking a knee during the national anthem in 2016 to protest racial inequality and police mistreatment of minorities. He was roundly criticized for years, but public sentiment has changed since George Floyd’s death in May. Floyd, a Black man, died after a white Minneapolis police officer pressed his knee into Floyd’s neck while Floyd was San Francisco Giants’ Antoan Richardson (00) and Jaylin Davis kneel during the national anthem prior to an exhibition baseball game against the Oakland Athletics.

18 • July 22 - 23, 2020 SPORTS (AP) The NFL has offered to scrap all preseason games, a person familiar with the decision told The Associated Press. The players’ association had sought no preseason games and the league had reduced the exhibition schedule to two games. But on Monday evening, the NFL said it would eliminate those preseason contests and also would offer players 18 days for acclimation, up from seven days. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the offer had not been made public. Another part of the offer is to provide a means for players concerned about participating in training camp and/or games to opt out and receive a stipend. The union has not yet accepted the offers. Should it do so, both sides would have taken a major step toward starting the season on time. Earlier Monday, the league said players will be tested daily for the coronavirus for at least the first two weeks of training camp, per the league’s new testing protocols. The NFL and the players’ union reached an agreement as rookies for Houston and Kansas City were set to report to camp. Rookies for other teams begin arriving Tuesday. bransonglobe.com AP Source: NFL offers players to scrap all preseason games Players and all Tier 1, Tier 2, Tier 2M or Tier 3 individuals must test negative two times separated by 72 hours using a nasal swab before initially entering the building to begin physical exams or any form of team activity. The tiers designate which employees can go where inside the team facilities. After two weeks of daily testing, if the positivity rate of those tests falls below 5% among players and Tier 1 and Tier 2 individuals, as described previously in NFL protocols, testing would go to every other day. If the positivity rate doesn’t fall below that threshold, daily testing would continue until it drops. “There’s no finish line with health and safety and I think SEE NFL, PAGE 19 NFL chief medical officer talks to reporters. (AP Photo/David J. Phillip, File)

bransonglobe.com SPORTS • NFL Continued from page 18 these protocols are very much living and breathing documents, which means they will change as we gain new knowledge about this virus, as we gain new knowledge about transmission, as we gain new knowledge about testing and there are new tests and new techniques that come online,” said Dr. Allen Sills, the NFL chief medical officer. “We very much anticipate that these protocols will change.” The NFL has sought input from other leagues that have already returned to action, including leagues outside the country. It’s not known how many positive tests would result in shutting down the football season. “There are complicated issues which involve a lot of factors,” Sills said. “But suffice it to say we very much look at it from a medical and public health standpoint, and we want to make sure that first and foremost we’re creating the safest possible environment for our players, for our coaches and our staff, but that we’re also operating within the safest environment for each one of our clubs’ locations, which means ongoing and regular communication with the public health authorities in those areas.” The league and the NFLPA already finalized protocols regarding team travel, media, and treatment response, and updated the facilities protocol to specifically address training camp based on recommendations from a joint committee of doctors, trainers and strength coaches formed by the league and players’ union. “Our union has been pushing for the strongest testing, tracing and treatment protocols to keep our players safe. The testing protocols we agreed to are one critical factor that will help us return to work safely, and gives us the best chance to play and finish the season,” the union said in a statement Monday. On Friday, the league sent players and teams an “Education Protocol” for camp which requires clubs to distribute joint educational materials and to conduct educational sessions for players, staff and family members. “Everything that we’re doing is centered around the concept of risk mitigation,” Sills said. “We know that we can’t eliminate risk, but we’re trying to mitigate it as much as possible for everyone. We know that this is going to be a shared responsibility.” Sills stressed the importance of responsible behavior away from team facilities. Unlike the NBA and NHL, the NFL can’t put its clubs in a bubble environment, so players and team personnel will have outside risk. “What’s good for players and what makes players and their families safer also makes coaches, staff and teams safer and, quite frankly, it makes our communities safer,” Sills said. The NFL’s testing will run through a national laboratory company. The league spoke with the CDC, the White House coronavirus task force, a number of public health officials, infectious disease experts; and national laboratory medicine leaders to make sure its testing protocol would not have a negative impact on the country’s testing supply or the healthcare system. “We’ve received unanimous response across the board that it July 22 - 23, 2020 • 19 would not have a negative impact,” Sills said. “That’s a very important point to us, we take that responsibility very seriously. We’ve also discussed that at length with our testing vendor to make sure we are not having a negative impact on any of their business.”

20 • July 22 - 23, 2020 NATIONAL (AP) There were plenty of acorns this spring, and now the chipmunks are driving people nuts. Their frenetic activities can be entertaining. But this summer in New England the varmints are making a nuisance of themselves, darting to and fro, digging holes in gardens, and tunneling under lawns. Plentiful acorns last fall meant there was still plenty of food on the ground when the chipmunks emerged from winter and got busy breeding this spring, said Shevenell Webb, a small mammal biologist with the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife. The result is a bumper crop of the critters. “They’re cute. They’re fun to watch in the forest as they duck in and out of the holes and play peekaboo,” Webb said. When their cheeks aren’t bulging with nuts, chipmunks make a distinctive “chip” sound, she said. But they’re also destructive. They can destroy lawns and garbransonglobe.com Chipmunks, fattened up on acorns, are driving people nuts dens with their burrowing, and can even get into homes, Webb said. “We can’t grow a tulip without wildlife program diversity them digging it up,” Steven Parren, There has been a spike in New England’s chipmunk population during the summer of 2020. (Ken Williams/The Concord Monitor via AP, File) manager for the Vermont Department of Fish and Wildlife, said of the chipmunks in his yard. “They don’t even pause.” There were so many acorns in one of the areas that he monitors that the rodents that rely on them couldn’t stash them all away for the winter. Plenty remained on the ground this spring. In addition to chipmunks, he said, he’s seeing more squirrels, rabbits and a variety of different kinds of mice. People needn’t get too alarmed over an overpopulation. Small mammal populations tend to explode, then crash and burn. Such is life near the bottom of the food chain, where food supply ebbs and flows and chipmunks are easy prey for owls, hawks, snakes, foxes and raccoons. Even if their lives aren’t cut short, individual chipmunks tend to live only for three years, Webb said.

bransonglobe.com NATIONAL Its $11M makeover complete, the Mayflower II is sailing home July 22 - 23, 2020 • 21 After undergoing more than three years of major renovations in Connecticut and months of delays due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the replica of the Mayflower is ready to return home. (Sean D. Elliot/ The Day via AP) (AP) Cue the cameras: The Mayflower II is ready for its closeup and its journey home. The replica of the original Mayflower ship that brought the Pilgrims to Plymouth, Massachusetts, in 1620 is preparing to embark from Connecticut after three years’ and $11.2 million worth of renovations — and several months of delays caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The beloved vessel is scheduled to be towed from the preservation shipyard at the Mystic Seaport Museum to New London, Connecticut, on Monday for two weeks of sea trials before heading up the coast. The 64-year-old historic reproduction is scheduled arrive back at the harbor just down the road from the Plimoth Plantation living history museum on or around Aug. 10. The original plan had called for a celebratory departure in late April with several stops at southern New England ports before a May arrival. That was to include being led into Boston Harbor under sail with the USS Constitution for a maritime festival to mark the 400th anniversary of the original Mayflower voyage. But those plans were scrapped because of the pandemic. The ship is now planning to make two overnight stops, without fanfare or crowds. The public can follow the trip online. The Mayflower II has been a major tourist attraction and educational tool since it arrived in Plymouth as a gift from England in 1957. Stabilization efforts began in 2014, with the ship spending part of the year in Mystic. Continuous restoration work began at the seaport museum in 2016, with shipwrights from the seaport museum and artisans from Plimoth Plantation engaged in the work. The ship’s keel was saved, but nearly 75% of the vessel is new, Sheehan said. Since being rechristened in 2019, craftsmen have been doing painting, rigging, finishing work and installing new features such as a stateof-the-art fire suppression system on board. For the remainder of this year, the ship will be docked at Pilgrim Memorial State Park, Sheehan said. “To the extent that it’s possible to mark her arrival with any sort of event, then we will do so,” she said. “Even under the most mundane of circumstances, Mayflower tends to attract a crowd, so even if a crowd gathers organically, we’ll communicate that they need to follow the state’s safety guidelines regarding physical distancing and mask wearing.”
