You really build family relationships and you’re building relationships between the kids. And, really knowing how your kids are doing with different things. There is obviously a lot more control of what they’re learning. And, you don’t have to worry about different political or social perspectives that may be pushed by someone at school, or about the language of some of the kids, or even bullying and other things that can happen at school.

Thanks to a grant from Skaggs Foundation, the cancer center received a new CT Simulator earlier this year. A CT Simulator is a specialized CT scanner used to determine the exact shape, size and location of a tumor to be treated with radiation. Cancer Center Director Ben Morris said the new equipment is part of CoxHealth’s commitment to providing the latest standard of care to patients.

bransonglobe.com LOCAL • TREATMENTS Continued from page 12 “This new scanner allows us to do what is called four-dimensional scans,” explains Cancer Center Director Ben Morris. “The fourth dimension is motion and that’s the primary reason we wanted this scanner.” Morris explained that the four-dimensional CT scans provide information that is used during the delivery of daily radiation treatments and determines the treatment field that a tumor moves. This information ensures that an entire tumor is treated while further limiting radiation exposure to healthy tissue. “Depending on where a tumor is located, when a patient moves during normal breathing, their tumor moves, especially for those with lung or abdominal cancers,” Morris said. “In the past, when we treated a patient, we had to treat a slightly larger volume of the area so that we knew we were treating the entire tumor. When you do a four-dimensional scan, you see how much the tumor moves and you can treat a smaller margin because you know exactly how that tumor is moving. When we know how much the tumor moves, we can treat less tissue. It’s all about minimizing side effects.” The new CT Scanner is step one of a two-part upgrade that will have big benefits for many patients. This fall, the cancer center will also be receiving a new Linear Accelerator, the machine that provides radiation therapy. The CT Scanner is a necessary component when used with the Linear Accelerator to offer stereotactic body radiation therapy, a treatment technique that allows for the delivery of curated doses of radiation in fewer treatments. “In some cases, stereotactic body radiation therapy could be the difference in a patient receiving five treatments of radiation over the course of a few weeks compared to 35 treatments over seven weeks,” Morris said. “This reduces the number of visits to the cancer center and allows patients to either continue to work or spend more time with family.” Funding for the purchase and installation of the CT Simulator was made possible by a Skaggs Legacy Endowment grant. Since 2013, Skaggs Foundation has awarded more than $5.3 million July 31 - Aug 1, 2020 • 13 in Skaggs Legacy Endowment grants.

(Photo by K.D. Michaels) people, is a lack of socialization. However Hughes and her family have found ways to rectify that concern. Hughes explained, “ I think it’s really important for kids to interact with adults and with others their age. There are lots of homeschool groups, and people they can get together with. Also, we’ve had our kids involved in scouts, in church youth activities, or in different music programs where they do group lessons. You can find all kinds of positive activities for your kids, where they will be able to interact with other kids.” Another local homeschooling mom, Diane B, echoes Hughes’ thoughts on socialization, “There are homeschool co-ops. Some meet once a week, and some once a month. That is a great resource for field trips. A huge part of socialization, for us, is friends and classes at church. Homeschooled children also do sports and music lessons to help with that.” Like Hughes, Diane, who has two school-aged children, has also found both pros and cons to homeschooling. “It is a full-time job. So for those that have to work, it would be tougher to do both,” Diane explained. “A huge benefit to us is time. We don’t feel like we’re missing out on their lives. And, when they learn something new, and you are the one that taught or helped them with that, it’s a great experience. Another benefit is safety. I’m not worrying about a school shooting or any kind of sickness because they are home.” With so many educational options available, there are many opinions on what really is the best option for the coming school year. “It’s my daughter’s senior year,” said Rachel, mother of a teenager, along with younger school-aged children. “She can social distance and wear a mask. My younger two I’m keeping home for at least the first nine weeks. They can’t wear a mask all day. And, they know nothing about personal space!” Another local parent, Mary, the mother of three, added, “I’m homeschooling only if masks are required. I can barely stand to wear my mask to the store, so I’m not bransonglobe.com going to expect them to wear them for eight hours a day while trying to learn.” Letha, a local parent, had a different perspective. “I’m sending my daughter to school, but she has to wear a mask in the hallways and on the bus. My main reasoning is she thrives in school, and I definitely struggled in teaching her.” And, Jessie, a single mom of three, agreed, saying, :”I’m sending my child back to school. I have other kids at home, and simply do not have the time and capability to teach her and give her the correct amount of time, while working.” A mother of high-school students, Crystal Wolfe, had differing thoughts, explaining, “We will send the kids to school only if the school has mandatory masks, temp checks, social distancing and health safety for the kids at all times. Another option we are presently leaning toward is working with eight other families. The children would all attend online school at our home three days a week, so the kids have a healthy social circle to encourage each other. They would enroll in school, and miss three days a week when they take the online classes. Taking online classes still allows them to participate in all sports at the school, as though they were attending full-time. My children do NOT want to do online classes, but they understand our decision in regards to their health.” Despite many differences in opinion regarding their children’s schooling -- and with more and more people leaning towards educating from home -- most parents can definitely agree that education is important, that each family faces different and unique circumstances, and that we are all very concerned for the health and welfare of our children.

bransonglobe.com LOCAL Missouri State University Communications Office SPRINGFIELD — External grants and contracts worth $29.7 million in fiscal year (FY) 2020 made hundreds of research, education and service projects possible at Missouri State University. Faculty and staff submitted 348 proposals to address the needs of communities, schools and businesses in southwest Missouri and beyond. Federal agencies remain the top funder, followed by state and nonprofit sponsors. Rachel McGinnis, director of research administration at Missouri State, said the impressive external funding numbers can only be attributed to engaged faculty and staff, and their dedication to exploring and applying for numerous research, service and education opportunities. “Many people work on several proposals and receive denials, but never give up. They continue submitting until they’re awarded funding to complete the projects that interest them and give our students outstanding opportunities,” added. The FY2020 awards cover a variety of projects, such as studying plants and animals, creating training programs, offering consultation expertise, and advancing entrepreneurial capacity. Some highlights include: • Missouri Department Health and Senior Services: To provide audiological consultation services to the department’s Newborn Hearing Screening Program. • National Science Foundation: To research the genetic and molecular basis of communicaMcGinnis tion between the rootstock and the scion in grapevine. • U.S. Environmental Protection Agency: To develop a watershed management plan for Lake Taneycomo through a partnership with the Ozarks Water Watch.

MDC is committed to providing hunting opportunities on managed waterfowl hunting areas throughout the waterfowl season. To allow for flexibility to respond to the state of the pandemic, there will be no pre-season reservations for the 2020-2021 waterfowl season. There will also be no teal season or youth season morning drawings. Procedures for individual conservation areas will be posted on the MDC website closer to season.

The weekly application period opens every Tuesday at 8 a.m. and closes the following Monday at 3 p.m. Throughout the season, hunters will be asked to follow precautionary guidelines to assure the safety of everyone at the site during the morning draw. There will be a sliding scale of procedural levels (see below) that could range from no staff-hunter contact at all to close to business as usual. At the start of the season, every conservation area will be assigned to a certain procedural level due to the status of COVID-19 in the county. The decisions will be made in consultation with the appropriate county health department. Throughout the season, an area could move to a more restrictive procedural level depending on the county health department or other COVID-19 related factors. Some details of the procedural levels are as follows: Red Level (very high COVID-19 risk) • No staff-hunter contact. • No facility use. • 100% allocation for Missouri residents only through in-season reservation draw. • Hunt positions will be pre-assigned. • No poor line or vacancy filling.

bransonglobe.com CURIOUSITIES Lost toy dog returns home with help of Cincinnati airport (AP) The Cincinnati-area airport took a child’s beloved stuffed animal for an impromptu tour, reaching many on social media, before uniting the toy Dalmatian with its family in Florida. Staff at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport were sending the toy back to Florida on Friday. The airport’s Facebook posts about the missing plaything reached 1 million people, airport spokesperson Mindy Kershner said. Airport employees found the toy left behind in the terminal, Kershner told The Associated Press, and snapped photos of the lost traveler outfitted in a mask at the airport’s restaurants, on the runway and with a K9 team. Doug and Phyllis Ronco, of Madeira Beach, Florida, said they were driving to the St. Pete-Clearwater International Airport to retrieve their son’s stuffed animal Friday morning. The family’s flight out of the southern Ohio airport had left early in the morning the day the toy was lost, Doug Ronco said. “I think our son was half a sleep when he left Masch-Masch (the dog’s nickname) at the terminal,” Ronco said. “Under normal circumstances, he would never forget him.” The family was traveling to visit relatives and friends in Ohio and Indiana with their three children, one of whom keeps the stuffed dog as his companion, Ronco said. A judge gave Ronco’s son, Jaydence, the stuffed Dalmatian on the day he was adopted by the couple. “So it’s very special to him,” he said. Ronco said the airport contacted him by email to let the family know the dog was left behind. He thinks they were the only family with children on the flight, and acknowledged the story had taken on a life of its own on social media. “The times we are in, some people sees the humor in something lighthearted, and others say, ‘Is this all you can do, talk about this stupid stuffed animal?’” he said, laughing. The family is bringing Oreo cookies to the airport to thank those who helped arrange the journey of their son’s special toy back home. July 31 - Aug 1, 2020 • 21
