Elevate Kids Director Cathy Brown explained, “It’s a Sensory Room. We have a magnetic chalkboard, a huge Light Brite, games for children of all ages, Thera-putty, just so many fun things. It doesn’t matter what age, the kids just love this room!” The sensory room also offers a trampoline, bouncing balls, a spinner board, and even a giant air wave machine which was built by an Elevate Branson board member. “The kids have to really work together on the air wave machine,” Brown noted. “They just think it’s so much fun.

Some kids can stay in here for hours. For some, they come in for just a few minutes, and they are calmed down, relaxed, and ready to get back to the topic at hand.” Currently, the Sensory Room is available to children of Elevate Branson clients who may be on campus for other programs or services, such as the Gateway Branson Church service or bransonglobe.com Elevate Branson offers new sensory room the Jobs for Life Program. The room can also be used by families for supervised visits through the Division of Family Services. “Right now, parents can come in and use our room with their kids. They just need to monitor their children,” noted Brown. However, there are other plans on the horizon. “Our goal is to have the Sensory Room open on certain days, along with our Elevate Cafe. As our cafe and coffee room is open more days and hours, we want to open the Sensory Room more,” said Brown. “Parents can come in, and hang out in our cafe, have a coffee, and just relax and have a break while I’m hanging with their kids in the Sensory Room.” The new Sensory Room is just the latest of the many services of Elevate Branson, located on Branson’s Gretna Road.

bransonglobe.com LOCAL Investment Banking: Preparing your company for sale, part 1 By Bob Hodgson, Investment Banker You may be considering selling your Branson business now or sometime in the future. The most important thing you can do to ensure a successful and profitable sale is to take steps to properly position your business for the sale. There are hundreds of reasons why a company is difficult or even impossible to sell. The main cause is a total lack of planning. The process of preparing a business for sale is called “presale positioning” because that is exactly what you are doing. You are positioning the company, its personnel, you and your family for the eventual sale. sell All too often, owners want to their business “yesterday”. However, they have done nothing to position themselves or the company for the sale. A recent company failed to sell because there was less than one year left on the lease. The building’s owner would not renew or enter into another lease because he had other plans in mind. The prospective buyer would have incurred several hundred thousand dollars to move the operation which made the sale unattractive. Another recent example is an owner who made every decision himself. He did not want to remain with the company even one day after the sale. A new owner would be lost for months without assistance from a key employee or secondary manager. Pre-sale planning: The goal of pre-sale positioning is to deal Bob Hodgson. (FILE) with any negative aspects that might hinder or prevent a sale. It also enables the owner to show the business in its best light. A negative situation for one company may be a positive situation for another. If you are the owner and/or founder and have worked in the business every day, the decision to sell becomes very emotional. What are your goals? Why do you want to sell? For some, this may be easy, while for others it may reflect such things as family pressure or business problems. What do you plan to do after the sale? Would you like to retire, travel, buy another business or remain after the sale? In next week’s article we will describe the major issues an owner must undertake when positioning a business for sale.

6 • July 26 - 28, 2020 OPINION bransonglobe.com Seven ideas to reduce political polarization and save America Rachel Kleinfeld and Aaron Sobel Opinion contributors, usatoday. com Few countries face polarization as deep as America’s. Democrats and Republicans used to disagree on policy issues — that’s the normal, useful tension that drives democracy. Today, each side fears the other will destroy the nation if they achieve power. Partisanship becomes equated with patriotism, and destroying the other side becomes the ultimate goal. This is how democracies fall apart. How can we heal our country’s toxic polarization? Here are seven research-backed ideas for pundits, politicians, reporters and regular citizens to bring down the temperature. 1. Call out your own party. Humans are social creatures — we want to belong, and are highly attuned to popularity. We look to those with status to tell us what it takes to be part of the in-crowd. That means if politicians, pundits and ideological leaders stand vocally against polarizing and hateful language and actions (as Virginia’s Republican leadership did by declaring they wanted no “white supremacist garbage” at their gun rally), it can change partisans’ perceptions, by making such behavior appear unacceptable to that group.

Avoid bad jokes. You might never dream of condoning partisan murder, but you might still share a really funny meme that makes the point. Watch it: jokes have a particularly strong effect on normalizing prejudice — far more than an overtly prejudiced argument. Particularly dangerous are jokes that employ violent rhetoric or dehumanize by comparing people to animals or insects. A slew of research shows that dehumanizing language removes inhibitions to perpetrating violence, SEE OPINION, PAGE 7 (The comments on these pages are the opinions of the writer, and not necessarily those of Branson Globe, or its staff.

bransonglobe.com OPINION • OPINION Continued from page 6 especially when the language cultivates pre-existing grievances and the speaker is respected by his or her group. 3. Make social media kinder. You may not be able to alter someone’s deeper beliefs, but there are three ways regular people on social media can get others to remove hateful messages, reduce the spread of hateful memes, and curb prejudiced or polarizing speech. First, reminding users that online speech has real-world, offline consequences (both to the writer, since employers can see posts, as well as to the person or group targeted) can lead users to recant a post. Second, making a personal or empathetic connection with the speaker can have the same effect. Finally, humorous words or images that make fun of the original idea can also defuse the spread of hateful speech. 4. Downplay the fringes and highlight the median. Americans are more polarized emotionally than ideologically — we actually disagree on policy far less than people think. Stunningly, a majority of Americans agree on the broad strokes of abortion, immigration and gun legislation. Because partisans tend to have distorted views of who composes the other party and how many people believe stereotypical views attributed to that party, providing real information that overturns these beliefs can reduce polarization. 5. Emphasize disagreement within parties. Reminding people that partisans have a range of opinions can dial back polarization. Immigration policy can be framed as left versus right, or as a complex issue that pits some right-wing business owners against others, some left-wing unions against more progressive activists, established immigrants against newer arrivals, and so on. The Difficult Conversations Lab at Columbia University found that when people read nuanced articles on policy issues that underscored this kind of intra-party disagreement, their conversations with people from the other party were of higher quality. 6. Help others imagine empathy. Helping people to imagine a disliked group in an empathetic way can reduce malicious beliefs about that group. Thus, stories that encourage people to take the perspective of or empathize with the other party can reduce people’s prejudice. Research in Europe and America on immigration found that even stories that simply linked immigrants to cultural issues, such as cooking, rather than border-crossing, decreased negative attitudes, while stories that linked immigrants to crime were polarizing. 7. Avoid repeating misinformation, even to debunk it. Repetition leads our brains to think things are true, regardless of the accuracy of the information being repeated. This tendency is even stronger when people want to believe a piece of false information, because our brains seek out information we want to hear. So, if people read that “Obama is not a Muslim,” many will remember “Obama is Muslim, maybe?” The best way to avoid deepening misinformation is to simply state alternative information: “Obama is Christian.” Many hoped the coronavirus pandemic would unite us. Instead, deep divisions over race and the role of government are intensifying and could even lead to political violence. The polarization we face today isn’t just about believing the other side is wrong. Partisans now see opposition party members as malevolent, immoral forces. Can America fix itself? The stakes are high. As a start, let’s give these seven ideas a try. July 26 - 28, 2020 • 7

Established by the General Assembly through this year’s budget process, $20 million in CARES Act funds will be directed to meat & poultry establishments who employ fewer than 200 people. Approved projects will aim to increase food supply resilience by increasing livestock & poultry processing capacity and promote worker safety as a result of the COVID-19 public health emergency. “As a farmer, I understand firsthand the challenging circumstances the COVID-19 pandemic has created within our agriculture community,” said Governor Parson. “Agriculture is the state’s number one economic driver, so I’m thankful for Senator Justin Brown’s leadership as a fellow cattleman and public servant to make sure these additional needs will be addressed.” The reimbursement grant will be administered using a tiered system, offering up to $200,000 for each state and federally inspected establishment that also conducts slaughter. State and federally inspected establishments that further process meat & poultry products, but do not conduct slaughter, qualify for up to $100,000 in grant funds. Custom exempt establishments may receive up to $20,000.

bransonglobe.com STATE Missouri Secretary of State’s Office Jefferson City, Mo. — While Wisconsin’s presidential primary election fell into chaos because election officials reduced the number of polling places from 180 to just five in the state’s largest city, Missouri’s local election authorities are ensuring sufficient polling places are open and will provide a safe voter experience for voters and poll workers alike. “I’m grateful that Missouri’s local election authorities have so genuinely considered how to best prepare for the August 4 primary, and how logistically to keep in-person voting safe and smooth,” Missouri Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft said. “It is up to each county clerk or election board to make those decisions, and I appreciate the forethought and problem-solving strategies they are employing to put voters and poll workers at ease. Voting in person on August 4 will be safe and secure. Thank you, also, to the veteran and first-time poll workers who understand the importance of voting on Election Day, and who are making it possible for Missouri voters to vote safely and securely on August 4.” Of Missouri’s 116 local election jurisdictions, 21 are increasing the number of polling places in August as compared to August 2016. Some polling places are being consolidated into larger venues, creating an efficient flow of voters and more room to allow for safe physical distancing. In May, Ashcroft drove more than 5,000 miles and visited all 116 election jurisdictions. He delivered 17,000 face masks, 17,000 face shields, 500 gallons of sanitizer, 40,000 floor strips for physical distancing and 16,000 posters that encouraged six feet of distance between voters.

It is also a long-distance roamer constantly in search of food. While black bears are usually very secretive and avoid encounters with people, a growing number of bears in the state is resulting in more encounters with and more interest in the big bruins.

bransonglobe.com STATE • BEARS Continued from page 12 bears. So far in 2020, we’ve already received nearly 250 bear reports with multiple reports coming from areas around Lake of the Ozarks and along I-44.” An adult male black bear that attracted public attention earlier this year is an example of how far bears can travel and how many people are interested in them. The bear is suspected to have traveled from Wisconsin, through Illinois, and into Missouri in early July. It swam the Mississippi River from Illinois and entered the Show-Me State near Elsberry before making its way into St. Charles County near Wentzville. There, it found itself stuck between major highways just north of I-70 and near I-40/61 with a gathering of hundreds of people watching it nearby. MDC staff found and immobilized the bear, placed tags in its ears, transported it to a nearby area of suitable bear habitat outside the very busy urban corridor, and released it unharmed. While MDC has not actively tracked the location of this bear, photos submitted by the public suggest that the bear has moved south through the Missouri Ozarks. While this bear’s movements are not normal for an adult bear, Conlee noted that bears, especially young dispersing males, can travel long distances – including into places they may not be welcome. Bears spend most of their time searching for food and are especially attracted to easy meals – including those provided by people. MDC encourages people to remove or properly store bear attractants from their property, such as bird feeders, trash, barbeque grills, pet food, and food waste. MDC emphasizes that people should never approach or feed a bear. Intentionally feeding bears can be dangerous because it makes the bears comfortable around people. It can also lead bears to cause significant damage to property while searching for a meal. “When bears lose their fear of humans, they could approach people in search of food or may defend the food sources or territory they associate with food provided by people, which can make them dangerous,” Conlee said. “When this happens, the bear cannot be relocated and has to be destroyed. A fed bear is a dead bear.” MDC offers the following tips to avoid attracting black bears to possible food sources: • Store garbage, recyclables, and compost inside a secure building or in a bear-proof container until trash pickup day. • Keep grills and smokers clean and store them inside. • Don’t leave pet food outside. Feed pets a portion at each meal and remove the empty containers. • Refrain from using birdfeeders in bear country from April through November. If in use, hang them at least 10 feet high and 4 feet away from any structure. Keep in mind that even if a bear cannot get to the birdseed, the scent could still attract it to the area. • Use electric fencing to keep bears away from beehives, chicken coops, vegetable gardens, orchards, and other Your Branson Area Weather Source Loving The Ozarks SUN 96 Partly to Mostly Sunny 72 Partly Cloudy Chance for Afternoon Storms 73 Chance for Showers & Thunderstorms 71 MON Branson Area 5 Day Outlook TUE potential food sources. • Keep campsites clean and store all food, toiletries and trash in a secure vehicle or strung high between two trees. Do not keep food or toiletries in a tent, and do not burn or bury garbage or food waste. While black bears are generally shy and non-aggressive, MDC emphasizes that people need to leave bears alone and make sure the bear has an escape route if encountered. “Be aware of your surroundings,” Conlee said. “If there is evidence of a bear in the area, such as tracks or scat, avoid the area.

18 • July 26 - 28, 2020 NATIONAL ST. LOUIS (AP) — The first Summer Olympics held in the U.S. looked unlike anything that had happened previously in Europe. Or that would happen again anywhere else. The Games originally were awarded to Chicago for 1904, but organizers of the World’s Fair in St. Louis put up such a fuss about a second international event held simultaneously that they threatened to have their own athletic events. It took the founder of the modern Olympic movement, Pierre de Coubertin, to forge peace by moving the Olympics south. Not that he did so with much glee. Writing later of the bizarre extravaganza that took place that summer, de Coubertin said: “I had a sort of presentiment that the Olympiad would match the mediocrity of the town.” Mediocre? Maybe. Memorable? Absolutely. Fred Lorz looked to have won the marathon — until it was discovered that he rode part way in a car. Organizers ran “Anthropology Days,” when members of indigenous tribes from around the world on hand for the Louisiana Purchase Exposition were plucked from the fair and told to compete with no warning. Boxing and freestyle wrestling debuted, sports that have clung to the Summer Olympics until the present day, along with long-since-forgotten croquet and tugof-war events. Vestiges of the 1904 Games still stand today. Glen Echo Country Club, the first golf course west of the Mississippi River, was completed in 1901 and remains a private club. Forest Park, where the lake was used for swimming, diving and water polo, remains a popular place for running, cycling and other recreational activities. Francis Field just to the east of the park is used by the Division III football, soccer and track and field teams of Washington University in St. Louis. “The first Olympic Games in the New World would produce a probransonglobe.com St. Louis Olympics was really World’s Fair with some sports found and permanent result,” author and historian Carl Posy wrote years later, “shaping every Olympic Games to come.” The St. Louis Games were the first at which gold medals were awarded to winners, and they remain the only medals made entirely of gold. That proved lucrative for a trio of Americans — gymnast George Eyser, swimmer Charles Daniels and aptly named track star James Lightbody — that each won three gold medals. U.S. athletes won 78 of 96 gold medals and 239 of 280 medals overall. There are several reasons for the dominance. The outbreak of the Russo-Japanese War and the challenge in getting to St. Louis prevented many of the best European athletes from competing. Fifteen nations and a few unattached individuals represented in the “Gateway to the West.” There were nearly 100 events during the months-long Summer Games, but archery was the only one in which women were officially allowed to compete. Lida Howell bested five other archers during the twoday competition. Woman also stepped into the boxing ring, though the bouts were considered display events. It was the last time women boxed at the Olympics until the 2012 Summer Games in London. The marathon may be the single SEE OYMPICS, PAGE 19 This image provided by the Library of Congress, shows the athletics field at the 1904 Olympic games in St. Louis.

bransonglobe.com NATIONAL • OLYMPICS Continued from page 18 most memorable event from the 1904 Games. The race took place in 90-degree heat on dusty roads with only a single water break, and 18 of the 32 athletes withdrew from exhaustion. Lorz made headlines when he dropped out of the race, rode several miles in a car, then returned to the course and crossed the finish line first — only to be disqualified as he was about to accept the gold medal. Cuban runner Felix Carbajal was done in by stomach cramps after stopping beside the road to gorge on apples. South African runner Len Tau was chased off course by a pack of wild dogs. One runner had a stomach hemorrhage and nearly died. The winner was Thomas Hicks, whose assistants fed him eggs, shots of brandy and doses of the toxic stimulant strychnine to keep him going. He was hallucinating as he crossed the finish line in 3 hours, 28 minutes, 53 seconds. It was controversial then and downright racist today, but an enduring part of the 1904 Games was what organizers called “Anthropology Days.” They recruited aboriginal Japanese, Native Americans, Igorot people from the Philippines and others from what they called “uncivilized tribes” who attended the World’s Fair to try such events as archery and track. Not surprisingly, the unprepared July 26 - 28, 2020 • 19 athletes fared poorly, and many Americans and Europeans smugly concluded they must be superior. But it was de Coubertin who called the production “an outrageous charade” and presciently said, “It will lose its appeal when black men, red men and yellow men learn to run, jump and throw, and leave the white men behind.” This image provided by the Library of Congress, shows competitors in the marathon at the 1904 Olympic games in St. Louis.

20 • July 26 - 28, 2020 CURIOUSITIES US Marshals: ‘Fugitive of week’ found asleep on porch LACONIA, N.H. (AP) — A “fugitive of the week” sought by the U.S. Marshals Service was found sleeping on a porch in New Hampshire, authorities said Wednesday. John Cathcart, 55, was sought on multiple arrest warrants issued from Belknap County, Deputy U.S. Marshal Jeffrey White said in a news release. The warrants included failing to appear on a charge of being a felon in possession of a firearm and failing to appear on three outstanding narcotics charges. Cathcart was in a featured Wednesday segment in local media and distributed to law enforcement officers statewide. Authorities said interviews led them to a porch in Laconia, where they found Cathcart. He was arrested without incident. It wasn’t immediately known if he had a lawyer who could speak on his behalf. Kansas dog makes 50-mile trek to her old home in Missouri LAWSON, Mo. (AP) — A dog named Cleo who disappeared from her home in Kansas earlier this month turned up a few days later at her old home in Missouri, bransonglobe.com about 50 miles away. Colton Michael told television station KMBC that the 4-year-old Labrador retriever-border collie mix showed up on the front porch of his family’s home in Lawson, which is about 30 miles (48 kilometers) northeast of Kansas City. At first, she wouldn’t let anyone get near her, said Michael, who has lived in the home for nearly two years. “She finds her way home, and SEE CURIOUSITIES, PAGE 21 Cleo the Dog. (KMBC-TV via AP)

Eventually, he was able to gain Cleo’s trust and to get her checked for a microchip, which showed that she belonged to the former owners of his house. Cleo’s owners, who had moved to Olathe, Kansas, about 50 miles (southwest of Lawson, couldn’t believe it when Michael called and said the dog had turned up at their old home. They had posted on Facebook a week earlier about the missing dog. Neither family knows how Cleo made the trip, which would have required her to cross at least one river. Friends share Powerball jackpot win, keeping 1992 promise MENOMONIE, Wis. (AP) — A western Wisconsin man will share his millions in lottery winnings with a longtime friend because of a promise they made to each other nearly three decades ago. Friends Tom Cook and Joseph Feeney shook hands in 1992 and promised that if either one of them ever won the Powerball jackpot, they would split the money. That promise came to fruition last month when Cook bought the winning ticket for a $22 million jackpot at Synergy Coop in Menomonie. When Cook called to give his friend the good news, Feeney couldn’t quite believe it. “He called me, and I said, ‘are you jerking my bobber?’” said Feeney, an avid fisherman. Cook retired after hitting the jackpot while Feeney was already retired. Neither has any extravagant plans for the winnings but are looking forward to enjoying more family time. “We can pursue what we feel comfortable with. I can’t think of a better way to retire,” Cook said. The pair said they’re looking forward to some traveling. The men chose the cash option of about $16.7 million, leaving each with nearly $5.7 million after taxes are paid. The odds of winning the Powerball jackpot are 1 in about 292 million.
