bransonglobe.com LOCAL Cedar Creek offers much more than coffee When an individual is By K.D. Michaels, Branson Globe Staff Writer The sign on the face of the older building on Branson’s Animal Safari Road reads Cedar Creek Coffee, but beyond the doors you’ll find so much more. While Cedar Creek Coffee, does roast delicious blends of many specialty coffees, the building is also home to New Hope Development, an employment service geared towards some of our area’s most special citizens. What began as two group homes and eight clients with learning disabilities and other special needs has become one of Branson’s most unique services -- and the fulfillment of a dream for Director Raeanne Zurn, who has been with Cedar Creek Coffee for 14 years. “Our owner is just the kind of employer that wants to help you reach your personal goals,” explained Zurn. “One of my dreams was to have an employment program. so, we bought a building. It was our owner’s idea to do the coffee, and at the time, I didn’t know anything about coffee, so we did a lot of learning.” Zurn and her employer attended trade shows, workshops and classes, and watched a lot of YouTube videos, then bought a roaster and in 2012, they began roasting their own coffee, which they packaged and sold on their website. The dream and vision also included having their own coffee shop, but with only eight clients, they knew that dream would have to wait. Zurn and her crew spent their time perfecting their coffee. “We have a wonderful blend of coffee we use as a house coffee,” Zurn said. “It is a mixture of Colombian, Brazilian and Ethiopian coffee, so it is a delicious blend of coffee that we have been able to create.” The time was also spent finding new clients, and honing their skills. New Hope Development now provides service to 25 individuals. Clients are referred to them through Linkability, who provides Case Management services to those with special needs in Taney and Stone Counties. seeking employment or job training, they are referred to Zurn and New Hope Development. The staff of New Hope Development helps the clients gain independence, integrates them into the community and works with clients on career planning and pre-vocational skills. Zurn explained, “We talk to them about what their goals are, and what kind of job they want. With the tourist industry here, we try to fill some of those housekeeping jobs and other jobs that are hard to fill in our community.” SEE COFFEE, PAGE 14 July 24 - 25, 2020 • 3 Pets of the Week Tri-Lakes Humane Society, Reeds Spring Call (417) 272-8113 or visit www.tri-lakeshumanesoc.org SNOWBALL is a 3 year old male.

bransonglobe.com LOCAL ‘Triple Crown Dill Pickles’, a championship way to use up garden-fresh cucumbers By Mommy’s a Good Cooker Two weeks ago, I shared my great-grandmother’s recipe for sweet pickles, a recipe handed down in my family for about 100 years. Pickles are their very own food group in my family, and must make an appearance at every meal, with the exception of breakfast. My aunt and uncle have carried on the tradition, and the pickles I’m going to share this week are probably my favorite! The sweet pickle recipe, as you remember, took 16 days! Last week’s recipe for Mom’s Cukes - cucumbers and onions - takes just a few minutes, plus marinating time. Our dill pickle recipe this week is refreshingly simple, and yields a delicious result. And that’s where the name “Triple Crown” comes from. The original recipe my aunt and uncle adopted and adapted to their own tastes has won first prize, Best of Show, and the Ball Canning Award at a county fair. Not bad! Triple Crown Dill Pickles You need: 1 small hot red pepper per jar 1 cluster of fresh dill per jar 2 garlic cloves per jar 30 - 36 medium-sized canning cucumbers 3 cups white vinegar 3 cups water 6 Tbsp. sea salt 1 tsp. dill seed 1 tsp. mustard seed Sterilize canning jars and lids according to manufacturer’s instructions. Put 1 hot red pepper, July 24 - 25, 2020 • 5 1 cluster fresh dill and 2 garlic cloves on the bottom of each sterilized jar. Wash cucumbers and pack into sterilized jars. In a saucepan, combine vinegar, water, salt, dill seed, and mustard seed. Bring to a boil and pour over cucumbers, leaving 1/2-inch headroom. Seal with sterilized lids according to manufacturer’s instructions. Process in a boiling water bath for 10 minutes. Once the pickles are canned, they should “rest” about six weeks to come to full flavor. You’ll get about 4 quarts from this recipe. Dill pickles, especially these with lots of garlic and some heat from the red pepper are definitely my favorites. Next week, Lord willing, I will share another recipe using fresh cucumbers I think you’ll really love. This version of Sweet & Sour Chicken comes from P.J. Beisswenger, an instructor at Silver Dollar City’s Culinary & Craft School. I will never make sweet and sour any other way, it’s that good!

The Mayo Clinic, CDC, WHO, Cox Medical Center, and the Taney County Health Department are among those recommending “the consistent and correct use of face coverings as an important tool for minimizing the spread of COVID-19.” What little the Ole Seagull knows he knows well but, unfortunately, that is vastly surpassed by what he doesn’t LETTERS Being retired medical professionals we have an intense interest in how our government handles medical issues that affect us. Research is in our bloodstream and with internet it is so much easier than most of our past experiences. As employers in the medical field employees working environment was of utmost importance for a happy pleasant workplace. OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) is a long standing government agency who is responsible for every employee in the USA. Employers are required to instruct employees that they have the right to file a complaint with federal government regarding any problems in their workplace and the first substantiated offense is followed with a $75,000 fine. As an employer you must post a large notice to employees from OSHA that gives 800 telephone number for employees to file against them! We were fortunate to never have a problem we couldn’t solve. This may not be so in today’s business environment in that OSHA has regulation that requires testing of employees breathing and selecting the type of mask needed for the environment the employee will be working in. I have worked as an OR nurse. Operating suites have special airflow control and extra oxygen that flows into these systems. This kind of planning comes into play when new facilities or remodeling of OR suites occur. All the result of protecting employees. My question: What is your liability as an individual or as a board of Branson city government for putting forth a mask ordinance requiring all persons to wear masks in all public areas (both indoors and outdoors) in businesses in Branson? Are you as a board prepared to pay a fine and legal fees for any business who is challenged by an employee in the city of Branson?? By the way Nixa’s governing body voted 6-0 for a no mask mandate in its city this week.

In the case of COVID-19, he relies on medical and health professionals. However, let’s say the medical evidence is all wrong; face coverings don’t prevent the spread of COVID-19. Who is hurt by wearing one? On the other hand, if the evidence that face coverings help prevent the spread of COVID-19 is right, how many can be harmed by not wearing one. 2.

A tool that, perhaps more than any other, gives people and our economy a chance to function closer to normal amid the COVID-19 pandemic. 3. It will impact on Branson’s economy because tourists won’t come. For what it matters, an Ole Seagull believes that argument was more viable in the spring and early summer. Not only in terms of the younger people and families coming to Branson but the fact that the benefits of mandatory masking were not as universally accepted as they are now. This is no longer the case. Major health and medical organizations universally recommend the use of face coverings. More and more major retailers, states, cities, tourist destinations and attractions, are adopting mandatory face coverings. All of which is serves to reduce the likely hood of someone not coming to Branson because of mandatory face covering. Perhaps the better argument, from a purely economic perspective, should be, “Will tourists not come, if Branson has no provision for mandatory face coverings? Who knows, but either way, Branson could lose potential tourists. The question is, in today’s environment, which will cause the loss of the least! More Street Talk: What is your opinion on Branson’s proposed mask mandate? COLTON SCHMITT -- I don’t like the mask mandate, there’s not enough conclusive evidence that it helps more than it hurts. The CDC keeps going back and forth on the issue, which leads me to believe they don’t have any real idea whether or not it works as well as they’d like to say it does. Most importantly to me though, if you can’t prove to me, with indisputable evidence that it works, you have absolutely zero claim on my liberties. I’m not against masks, for some people, they may be more beneficial, but the general public, no. There’s not enough proof that it helps, and there’s plenty of evidence that it’s causing health issues for people. The mainstream media is trying to hide it, but it’s there. Have a news tip?

All the seats and tables face the stage and everyone can see without any obstruction. It’s tiered seating, and that helps too. I love the room because it’s fairly intimate which is great for the effect my puppets, the dog and other animals have on the audience.” Oliver, Irving and some of his ‘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 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.

Oliver has played theaters across the country, and is glad to be back in Branson. “I’ve been very blessed.

By the time Sterett was admitted in the hospital, her mother was already on a ventilator there. “I can’t tell you how awful that was,” she says. “I was sick myself and was trying to make hard decisions over phone calls and FaceTime. Nothing prepares you for that.” Sterett was discharged after one day in the hospital. At the time, Ellen was still on life support. “She didn’t make it. I will always have guilt over that.

He stressed that one of the primary ways the disease spreads is through respiratory droplets from those with COVID-19. He said, “As I am talking to somebody without a mask on those respiratory droplets travel in the range of about six (6) to eight (8) feet.

bransonglobe.com LOCAL Submitted to Branson Globe BRANSON, Mo – The City of Branson Utilities Department has agreed to participate in a statewide program to sample the City’s wastewater for COVID-19 indicators that could help monitor trends and provide an early warning of new COVID-19 outbreaks. This program is grant-funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and run by the Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS) and the Missouri Department of Natural • COFFEE Continued from page 14 spending time with the customers. Zurn explained, “The guys love to socialize. So, if you want to play cards, or a board game, they’ll do it. They’ll sit down and play or just hang out. They just love talking to the customers, and getting to know people in the community. And that is one of our main purposes, to integrate them with the community and to let people get to know them. They really are amazing!” Zurn’’s clients feel that New Hope Development is amazing, as well, and are quick to share what the program has done for them. One client, Brian, was 18 when he began living in one of the original group homes, and began working for Cedar Creek in 2012. Brian is proud that the New Hope program has taught him responsibility and independence. He stated that he enjoyed baking Kolaches, and loves to teach. In fact, he teaches many classes to his fellow clients, including Life Skills, Independence, Food Safety, and most recently math to help them in running the cash register at the new coffee shop. Another client, Dylan, is a talented entertainer, who enjoys acting, and participates in the Branson Regional Arts Council’s many productions. Dylan is also working on his own variety show, to open soon in Branson. He credits New Hope DeResources (MDNR) as well as the University of Missouri – Columbia. Raw wastewater samples are collected by communities across the state, including Branson, and then are submitted via courier to the University of Missouri. There, a team of scientists conducts a molecular analysis that looks for genetic markers of the virus. “Not only is participating in this program cost-effective since the samples will be taken in conjunction with our normal sampling velopment with helping him learn proper behavior. Dylan also works at the new Cedar Creek Coffee and Creations. “I work at the Kolache station sometimes. I work serving drinks, and sometimes I work as a cashier,” Dylan explained. “The cashier is my favorite position, because i’m very good at counting back change.” The opening of Cedar Creek Coffee and Creations is truly a dream come true for Raeanne Zurn, her staff, and her clients. But, like with most businesses in our area, Covid-19 has presented some problems. The business did a soft opening on June 25, and is currently open three days a week, Thursday and Fridays from 8:00 am until 1:30 pm, and Saturday from 9:00 to 1:00. They are located at 310 Gretna Road, on the campus of Elevate Branson. “Our goal is to be open Monday through Saturday, but we really need the community to come in, to step up and give us their business, so we can stay open” urged Zurn. “The Kolaches are amazing, we can sell them individually, by the dozen, or in party trays, and we’re working on trying to get some curbside service going if you’re not comfortable going inside. It really is a great, quiet spot for a coffee date, or a little Bible study, or just to hang out and visit. We really encourage everyone to come by and see us!” process but it will also provide important data to state officials that has the potential to protect the health and well-being of our community,” said Branson Utilities Director, Mike Ray. While wastewater is not a significant transmission pathway for the virus, sewage surveillance is a proactive effort to inform the public and mitigate any virus spread. Sewage testing has identified the presence of the Coronavirus in areas where no cases have been reported. July 24 - 25, 2020 • 15 City of Branson agrees to test wastewater for coronavirus This gives those communities an early warning and potentially provides earlier notice for implementing prevention measures. The City of Branson plans to conduct this monitoring for at least a year.

Courtesy Missouri Dept. of Conservation) July 29 program focuses on rain gardens By Francis Skalicky, Courtesy of MDC CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. – Ever since humans began tending small patches of cultivated ground, the words “rain” and “garden” have gone together. Today, these two words have merged to describe an innovative and eco-friendly landscaping device. People can get learn more about rain gardens in the Missouri Department of Conservation’s (MDC) free virtual program “Rain Garden Tour.” This online program will be 10-10:30 a.m. on July 29 and is being put on by the staff of MDC’s Cape Girardeau Conservation Nature Center. This program is designed for people ages 12 and up. People can register for this program at: https://mdc-event-web. s3licensing.com/Event/EventDetails/173710 In essence, a rain garden is a shallow depression that captures rain water and holds it until it is absorbed into the ground, evaporates, or is taken up by plants. They are great landscaping devices for dealing with storm water run-off or for a soggy spot in the yard. With the appropriate soil, proper plants, and good design; water is absorbed quickly. A well-functioning rain garden is a small bio-retention cell that “cleans” storm water and reduces its volume (through rapid absorption) once it enters the garden. Rain gardens also provide important habitat for pollinating insects, birds, and other wildlife. Though this program is free, registration is required to participate using the link above. Registrants must provide an e-mail, so a program link can be sent to them. This program will include a chat-based question-and-answer period where participants can interact with the presenters.

bransonglobe.com STATE July 24 - 25, 2020 • 19 St. Louis angler catches state record longear sunfish By Jill Pritchard Courtesy of Dept. of Conservation JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) congratulates Robert Audrain III of St. Louis for catching a new state record longear sunfish. Audrain was fishing from a private pond in Franklin County July 3 when he caught the 4-ounce fish. “I was fishing off my father-inlaw’s dock at a private lake a little south of Eureka,” Audrain said. “I was with my 12-year-old son and we knew there was some goodsized sunfish in the lake. I was using my handline and it was the first line I threw in when we caught the fish.” The sunfish was weighed on a certified scale at MDC’s St. Louis Regional Office. It’s the 8th state-record fish recorded for 2020. “It’s funny because most of my friends thought it was a joke,” laughed Audrain. “Because of the fish’s size, they really didn’t think that it was a record.” The previous record was a 3-ounce fish caught in 1993 in Lick Log Creek. “The previous record was recognized before the requirement to meet or exceed the Master Angler Award minimum was instituted,” explained MDC Fisheries Programs Specialist Andrew Branson. “Even though this new record is below the Master Angler Award minimum of 8-ounces, it still beats the existing record.” As for his new record, Audrain said he plans to mount the sunfish. “My buddy’s father is a taxidermist, and I think I’m going to have him mount it,” he said. “But I think my son and I are going to try for another record. We’re pretty sure there’s a bigger fish in that lake. I think it’d be cool for him to beat my record!” Missouri state-record fish are recognized in two categories: pole-and-line and alternative methods. Alternative methods include: trotlines, throwlines, limblines, banklines, juglines, spearfishing, snagging, snaring, gigging, grabbing, archery, and atlatl. Robert Audrain III of St. Louis is the latest record-holder after catching a 4-ounce longear sunfish July 3 off a private lake in Franklin County.

20 • July 24 - 25, 2020 STATE Courtesy of MO Dept. Economic Development JEFFERSON CITY: The Missouri labor market’s recovery continued in June 2020, following the major job losses earlier in the year from COVID-19 shutdowns. Employment, seasonally adjusted, increased by 71,600 jobs over the month, and over-the year job losses, though still substantial, were less than in April and May. The state’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate decreased more than two full percentage points from May 2020 to June 2020, while May’s rate was unchanged from preliminary estimates. Missouri’s smoothed seasonally adjusted unemployment rate went down by 2.2 percentage points in June 2020, decreasing to 7.9 percent from a revised May 2020 rate of 10.1 percent. The national unemployment rate was 11.1 percent in June 2020. Missouri’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate has now been either below or equal to the national rate for 64 consecutive months. Employment, seasonally adjusted, increased by 71,600 jobs over the month to total 2,689,200. Combining May and June, Missouri recovered approximately one-third of the jobs lost in March and April. The estimated number of unemployed Missourians was 237,649 in June 2020, down by 65,998 from May’s 303,647. The state’s not-seasonally-adjusted rate was also 7.9 percent in June 2020, down by 1.9 percentage points from the May 2020 not-seasonally-adjusted rate of 9.8 percent. The corresponding national rate was 11.2 percent. bransonglobe.com Missouri Department of Economic Development releases June jobs report Missouri’s seasonally adjusted rate had reached a record low of 3.0 percent starting in July 2018, before edging up a tenth of a point in November 2018 and again in February 2018. The rate had remained at 3.2 percent through May 2019 before decreasing by a tenth of a point in June 2019. It then began a slow increase, reaching 3.4 percent in October 2019, where it remained for the remainder of 2019. The rate was steady at 3.5 percent in January and February 2020 before the COVID-19 spike began in March 2020. A year ago, the state’s seasonally adjusted rate was 3.1 percent, and the not-adjusted rate was 3.4 percent. Missouri’s seasonally adjusted nonfarm payroll employment was 2,689,200 in June 2020, up by 71,600 from the revised May figure. However, the May 2020 total was revised downward by 21,800 from the preliminary estimate, producing a revised increase of 50,900 jobs from April 2020 to May 2020 and a revised decrease of 282,400 jobs from May 2019 to May 2020.
