2 • May 31 - June 2, 2020 LOCAL bransonglobe.com School of the Ozarks graduate Jack Carswell, accepted to West Point Submitted to Branson Globe POINT LOOKOUT, MO. — School of the Ozarks 2019 graduate, Jack Carswell, has been accepted to study at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, in West Point, New York. Upon graduation from School of the Ozarks last year, Carswell accepted the West Point Association of Graduates Scholarship to study at Marion Military Institute (MMI) in Marion, Alabama. MMI is the nation’s oldest military junior college. Carswell earned academic recognition during his year at MMI, being named to the Dean’s List. Rigor and training paid off, as his application to West Point was accepted. The process of application was rigorous and involved an evaluation of academic achievements, extracurricular activities, leadership skills, physical aptitude, character, motivation, and personal interviews. School of the Ozarks 2019 graduate, Jack Carswell, has been accepted to study at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, in West Point, New York. Carswell, pictured here in uniform, is with his father, Dr. Justin Carswell. (Submitted to Branson Globe) “Going to school at Marion was a challenge,” Carswell said. “I had always operated as a high achieving student in high school; however, never before had I felt the pressure to work harder or succeed more than I had at the prep school. “I was notified in February of 2020 that I had been accepted to West Point. I could not have been happier! I was overwhelmed with joy and deeply satisfied with my success. At the same time, I know that this opportunity only invites more difficult times in the next four years. I’m completely sober and cognizant of the fact that I’ll be pushed and prodded to grow through a varied array of stressful situations.” Carswell plans to major in either law and legal studies or international affairs. “Either will help prepare me for life in the military,” Carswell said. “I hope to join the artillery and later become a fire-support officer. Ultimately, I want to lead soldiers in the greatest Army in the world as a commissioned officer.” Brad Dolloff, dean of School of the Ozarks, watched Carswell’s development through his four years as a student at S of O. Academically, Carswell earned a high GPA and was a seven-semester member of the Beta Club, a national honor society recognizing academic success. He was a member or leader of several student clubs and organizations, including Young Americans for Freedom and student government. “Jack Carswell is a young man with an outstanding work ethic, high integrity, compassion, and focused ambition,” Dolloff said. “Those virtues which were instilled in him by his family have been sharpened and polished at School of the Ozarks. He is the same young man of Christian virtue in public as he is in private. Jack exemplifies the portrait of an S of O graduate, being first an individual of Christ-like character who also reflects the school’s goals academically, vocationally, and, obviously, as a patriot willing to serve one’s country.” Carswell’s father, Dr. Justin Carswell, serves as vice president for Christian ministries and dean of the chapel at College of the Ozarks. “Our whole family is excited for Jack and proud of his accomplishments, the best of which is being a great brother to his younger brothers and older sister,” Carswell said. “I am thankful for his time at School of the Ozarks, where he had opportunities to grow in his faith and be involved in so many wonderful experiences through athletics, academics, and travel. It helped broaden his perspective and pushed him to excel and reach for West Point.”

bransonglobe.com LOCAL By “Mommy’s a Good Cooker” There are certain tastes and smells that remind us of home and talke us back to childhood. For me, that trip back is a pleasant one; one with family, food and a wonderful sort of indulgence reserved for special occasions with those we love. For me, one of the warmest, sweetest memories is my paternal grandmother’s chocolate cake. Grandma Iris was born in Saschatchewan and emigrated to the United States at about the age of 5. She graduated from the fifth grade, and at that point, in the mid1920s, she went to work as a domestic. That it was a different time is utterly and ridiculously obvious. But Grandma Iris learned much, especially about cooking. In 1930, at age 16, Grandma Iris married. My daddy was born four years later. Grandma Iris didn’t have sophisticated ways, but she knew how to show love to her family. One of the best ways - at least in my opinion - was with this chocolate cake. She named it Never Fail Chocolate Cake. Since working out the recipe - she measured nothing - I can stand by this recipe as “never fail.” Best of all, it stirs up in one bowl. Enjoy! Grandma Iris’ Never Chocolate Cake You need: 2 cups of flour 2 cups sugar 1/2 cup baking cocoa Fail 2 tsp. baking soda 1 tsp. baking powder 1/2 tsp. salt 2 eggs, beaten 1/4 tsp. almond extract OR 1 tsp. vanilla extract 1 cup canola oil 1 cup buttermilk 1 cup hot water Frosting of choice Mix dry ingredients together. Add eggs, oil and buttermilk and mix well. Finally, add hot water and combine. Pour into a greased 9x12 baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes. Cool completely and frost if desired.

8 • May 31 - June 2, 2020 STATE By Jill Pritchard Courtesy of MDC JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) is proposing changes to the Wildlife Code of Missouri regarding coyote hunting and feral hog control. MDC is considering the changes in response to citizen requests to the Regulations Committee to use night vision, infrared, thermal imagery equipment or artificial light to hunt coyotes and from landowners to allow their authorized representatives to use night vision, infrared or thermal imagery equipment without prior approval from a conservation agent to address damage caused by feral hogs. The proposed regulations would allow landowners who own property of any size and their authorized representatives to possess, control, and use night vision, infrared, and thermal imagery equipment to kill feral hogs on the landowner’s property while in possession of any implement where wildlife could be killed or taken. Landowners and their representative would be authorized to kill or take feral hogs using these methods without prior approval from a conservation agent throughout the year. Additionally, the proposal allows properly licensed hunters to use artificial light, night vision, infrared, or thermal imagery equipment in conjunction with other legal hunting methods to pursue and take coyotes from Feb. 1 through March 31. “MDC proposed this specific time frame to allow these methods for predator hunting based on several factors,” explained MDC Deputy Director of Resource Management Mike Hubbard. “It’s a time when most bucks have shed their antlers, which minimizes the threat of poaching. It also occurs after Jan. 31 when other furbearer seasons have closed, such as badger, bobcat, and fox.” MDC notes that property owners and their representatives can still use night vision, infrared, thermal imaging equipment, or artificial light to kill coyotes or other wildlife causing property damage at any time of the year with written authorization from a conservation agent. The Missouri Conservation Commission gave initial approval bransonglobe.com MDC considers regulation changes for coyote hunting and invasive species control to the proposed regulation changes during its May 28 meeting. As part of the rulemaking process, MDC is asking for public comment July 2 – 31 at https://short. mdc.mo.gov/Z49. The Commission will then consider input received and make a final decision to approve, amend, or withdraw the changes during its Sept. 4 meeting. If approved, the anticipated effective date of the changes would be Nov. 30. For more information on nuisance and problem species, visit the MDC website at https://short. mdc.mo.gov/Z5L.

bransonglobe.com STATE The bizarre day in history when one Missouri city went from Spanish to French to American Special to Branson Globe While the majority of us have experienced our own set of 24 hours that were memorably odd in the Show-Me State, there’s one particular day in history that was considerably more unusual than the rest. Taking you all the way back to the 1800s is Three Flags Day. After the Louisiana Purchase deal was made between the French and the United States, our country doubled in size. Originally the United States had only intended on buying New Orleans from the French, but the large piece of land would eventually be offered up to our country for a price that we couldn’t refuse. The massive deal was one that would take the Spanish by surprise, seeing as they had just recently ceded the land to the French. Because the French had only so recently acquired the land, the majority of it was still run by the Spanish. While the Louisiana Purchase would go into effect on April 30th, 1803, the official Americanizing ceremony wouldn’t take place until that winter. After the deal went through, it took months for all of the needed arrangements to be made. Over the course of the summer and fall, money changed hands and Congress signed the needed papers to put everything into place. An original Americanizing ceremony was held in the territory’s capital of New Orleans, but because it was during the winter in the 1800s those living north of New Orleans didn’t hear about the change until significantly after it had taken place. It would later be decided that in March of 1804, a second ceremony would be held in St. Louis. Unfortunately, the next issue at hand would be that the Spanish had yet to actually give up the territory of St. Louis! It was quickly realized that in order to turn over the territory’s new American identity, that two treaties would need to be put into effect, one at a time. First, the land would be transferred from the Spanish to the French, with the French then transferring the land to the United States afterwards. On March 8, 1804 the Spanish Governor of St. Louis posted a notice on the city’s church door informing everyone in the area of the major switch in power that was about to take place. After the announcement was made, the next day on March 9 the Spanish flag came down in St. Louis and the French flag went up to fly high. Because so many of the residents living in the area had French roots, excitement enthused as the flag waved in the air. The French flag was originally due to stay up for six hours, but because of all the excitement they allowed it to fly until noon the following day. On March 10, the French flag came down with the new American Flag rising up in town. Sadly, the American flag didn’t cause as much of a friendly frenzy as the French one did. Now you know the story of why we refer to March 10 as Three Flags Day! May 31 - June 2, 2020 • 9 Missouri was part of the Louisiana Purchase. (Special to Branson Globe)

bransonglobe.com NATIONAL May 31 - June 2, 2020 • 11 Protests over George Floyd’s death spread across the nation (AP) Developments across the United States in connection with the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody: DENVER — Denver Mayor Michael Hancock called for calm and unity Friday after the first of several planned city protests over George Floyd’s death turned violent, declaring, “Let not the story be about the riots and protests. Let’s keep the focus on the life that was lost.” “I can tell you not to go out and demonstrate but the reality is it’s going to happen,” Hancock said at a news briefing, stressing he shared outrage over what he’s called the “senseless and tragic murder” of Floyd in Minneapolis. Hancock and Police Chief Paul Pazen blamed what they called a minority of agitators among peaceful protesters for inciting violence throughout downtown on Thursday. That violence included throwing rocks at police officers, setting small fires, and breaking windows and damaging cars at the state Capitol and at businesses. More protests were planned for Friday and Saturday. Pazen said three officers were injured and that 13 people were arrested for burglary, criminal mischief and assault. WINDERMERE, Fla. — A group of about 10 protesters gathered Friday near a Florida town home that belongs to a white Minneapolis police officer who knelt on George Floyd’s neck. The protesters arrived after social media postings listed the address of Derek Chauvin in the community of Windermere outside Orlando. They carried signs that said, “He said I can’t breathe. Justice for George,” and “We see you, we hear you ... we love you! #Justice for George.” The handcuffed black man pleaded for air as Chauvin, the white police officer, knelt on his neck during an arrest recorded on video by bystanders. The Orange County Sheriff’s Office tweeted from its official account that Chauvin is not at the residence and is not expected there. The office says it’s confirmed he has no plans to be in the area. ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Albuquerque police used a helicopter and tear gas as they retreated from a crowd of people after a confrontation that followed a protest of the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody. Police said officers responded to several shots being fired from a vehicle following a demonstration that had lasted hours. Four individuals were taken into custody, and several protesters became confrontational, police spokesman Gilbert Gallegos said. During the confrontation, protesters waved signs and yelled at officers clad in riot gear. Gallegos said Friday the tear gas was used to allow officers to leave the area and avoid further confrontation. There were no reports of injuries from the gunshots, and it wasn’t clear whether that incident was related to the protest. Gallegos also said there were no injuries resulting from the confrontation with protesters. FONTANA, Calif. — Nine people were arrested after rocks were thrown at businesses, vehicles and officers during a Southern California protest stemming from the death of a black man in Minneapolis police custody. The violence erupted Thursday night in Fontana as about 100 people moved up and down a thoroughfare and blocked traffic.

After a few weeks, when it became clear there would be no in-person therapies for the foreseeable future, we decided to try a few speech therapy sessions. Pablo already has many developmental strikes against him, so we decided that, until things got back to normal, anything would be better than nothing.

This partly because children get distracted and want the attention of parents. And for parents, there is an advantage: a 30- to 45-minute respite from parenting’s rigors. But there are two big disadvantages. First, parents have to get kids to therapy. This is rarely talked about but one of the biggest challenges of raising special needs children (never mind that most insurance companies only cover a fraction of the therapies needed and the gaps have to be covered out-of-pocket). A few years ago, at one point my wife and I were taking Pablo to five therapies a week. It was exhausting, and we realized it wasn’t fair to Pablo’s older brothers, who have a right to their own extracurricular activities.

The Resocialization of Collegiate Sports: Action Plan Considerations was announced as schools across the country prepare for the return of football players as early as June 8. The NCAA’s Division I Council voted last week to l ift a moratorium on athletic activities starting Monday. That cleared the way for voluntary workouts and training to begin at team facilities. Schools have already started putting plans in place to test athletes, coaches and staff for coronavirus and implement social distancing. The NCAA says its plan is offered as guidance, consistent with federal and local public health guidelines. Shortly before the NCAA released its guidelines, the University of North Carolina posted on social media its plan to bring athletes back to campus. The college football season is scheduled to start around Labor Day weekend, with a few games being played the Saturday before the holiday weekend. There is to be a full slate of games from Sept. 3-7.

But even if we weren’t, we want to keep exploring online therapies. They’ve been working so well. As I reflect on Pablo’s progress and our evolution in thinking, I realize something: For all the misery that coronavirus has caused, it’s probably also creating disruptions like ours in many people’s lives — disruptions that reveal something positive we never expected.

14 • May 31 - June 2, 2020 SPORTS bransonglobe.com AP sources: No consensus yet on NBA return-to-play plan By Tim Reynolds (AP) The NBA Board of Governors met again without a consensus opinion emerging on how many teams should be back on the floor for the planned late-July resumption of the pandemic-interrupted season, three people familiar with details of the call said Friday. The people, speaking on condition of anonymity to The Associated Press because no details of the call were publicly released, said Commissioner Adam Silver is still collecting information on multiple options ranging from 16 to 30 teams returning to action when the season begins again at the ESPN Wide World of Sports complex near Orlando, Florida. Information is still be collected on options to bring the NBA season back. (AP file photo) One person said the idea of bringing back 20 teams — possibly a few more, but not all 30 — continues to resonate as the most likely scenario, as of now. Another plan discussed Friday, the person said, would bring any team within six games of a playoff spot back for the resumption of the season, a scenario where bassed on the current standings 13 teams from the Western Conference and nine from the Eastern Conference would return. Silver, who has been closely working with the National Basketball Players Association, has not revealed when or how a formal decision will ultimately be made. But given the league’s known hope to be back on the court by the end of July, Silver’s decision would likely have to come very soon. Not all team practice facilities have reopened for voluntary workouts, meaning there could be some players who haven’t done any on-court work since the league suspended the season on March 11 in response to the coronavirus pandemic. The New York Knicks and Washington Wizards opened their facilities Friday for the first time since the shutdown started, and the Boston Celtics said they will do the same on Monday. The only teams left at this point without a known reopening plan for their practice facilities are Detroit, San Antonio and Golden State. Teams that are open can have a maximum of four players in a facility simultaneously at this point, with none of them allowed to work out together or even play 1-on-1. The belief has been that the league will ramp up what’s allowed within the voluntary workouts before setting a date for a training camp that would precede the resumption of the season. Countless questions remain unanswered after the Board of Governors call, including the playoff format, if additional regular season games — roughly 21% of the league’s schedule remained when the season was stopped — would be played and if so, how that schedule would work. KEEP CALM AND WASH YOUR HANDS Details of what the league’s testing plan would be are also somewhat unclear, though it’s almost certain that any program would involve all players and staff being checked very regularly and possibly even daily once the season resumes. Another very big issue is money. The NBA has the right, per the Collective Bargaining Agreement, to exercise a clause and recoup roughly 1.08% of each player’s salary for every regular-season game that is canceled for unforeseen circumstances such as a pandemic. The NBPA has not responded to requests for comment on how the financial implications of lost games would affect players. But If some teams are not brought back when the season resumes and more regular season games are played, then it would seem possible for some players could lose a much larger percentage of their salary than others would.
