Being an active member in the military means more than just having a job. It means that you are invariably putting your life on the line. You must be strong, not only physically capable, but also mentally capable. When deciding to join the honoring profession, it is a requisite that you recite the oath that all the veterans have stood for and the beautiful history that falls behind it. In the beginning of the American Revolution, Congress established oaths for the continental Army. Their oaths differed depending on where they enlisted. During the Revolutionary War, the first oath was adopted on June 14, 1775; primarily for the Continental Army. Shortly later, however, the oath was edited to propose the idea that englisting could result in a longer duration of service. In the original, written in 1775, the oath read that the soldier was only active for one year. In the revised version this part was omitted. The first Constitutional oath was approved by Congress in 1789. The WEATHER...page 12 Garrett Wicker. Branson Globe photo) pledge had two similar parts that consisted of swearing yourself in. It applied to all commissioned officers, noncommissioned officers, and privates in the services. The 1789 version of the oath remained in commission for many years. In 1960, an amendment to Title 10 redesigned the vow into what it is today. Break down each segment of the oath and explain what it means to you.

Caitlin Knop and Noah Davis tore out of Bastrop and Smithville, Texas, near Austin to beat Tropical Storm Chrstobal. Seven hours later Monday night the storm caught up with them outside of Branson. They checked into the Hilton and dashed across the street to the Branson Landing for a look-see. Eventually they landed at the Paddlewheel. “We decided to go on a road trip,” said Knop, a schoolteacher. “We’re headed to Clear Lake Iowa. I want to show Noah the farm in my family for 150 years, tomorrow, after the rain quits.” “I’m am out-of-work chef so I have time on my hands, Davis.” I was curious to see how restaurants like the Paddle were dealing the Covid.” Larry Milton, Paddlewheel owner and city Alderman, said he hired two Cleaning Czars” for constant disinfecting.

Enough people are finding out about us so we can barely cover expenses and not break the bank.” It’s the reaction of people when out in public that brings up interesting reactions from people, Tony said. “I coughed in The Branson Café and nearly cleared the place out.” Milton of the Paddlewheel said some tourists seemed a little nervous and the “the majority are optimistic.” For Cindy Demeter, customer service representative and cashier at the Country Mart store, there is one thing that bugs her the most about the Covid bug – her nails, or lack thereof. It’s painful Demeter said. “I’m constantly sanitizing. I keep hitting my hands on the Plexiglas shield bumping my nails. The mask fogs up your glasses. Its draining. But that is all nothing. We do it and think of all those people who loved ones. Were just here to help.”

This segment also exemplifies my loyalty to the government. “...and that I will obey the order of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code Military Justice” clarifies my awareness of authority and my obedience towards them. The final sentence reads, “So help me God”; this is consequential because our entire nation is built on faith in God. In summation, I originally did not know the enlistment oath.

Father’s Day comes, our thoughts naturally turn to our dads and what they mean to us. My dad taught me a lesson that I would like to share with you. We had about 24 cows to milk most of the time on our little farm in Verona, MO. I liked to tag along with my dad on summer evenings when he went down into the pasture to bring them up for milking. On one hot summer evening, I was tagging along behind him watching the little puffs of dust come from under my bare feet on the dry, dusty cow path. Suddenly he stopped, squatted down, and pulled a blade of grass. My dad sat for a while looking at that blade of grass. First he looked on the underneath side of it, and then he rolled it over and looked at the top of it. I could tell that my dad was having deep, serious thoughts. “Patsy,” he said, “jest look at this blade of grass. Look at all the little hairs on it. Look at all the little lines going here and there on it.” About that time, an airplane flew overhead. My dad looked up at the sky and said, “You know, man can make an airplane and fly. Why, someday, who knows, man may even be able to go to the moon and back, but don’t you ever forget that only God can make a blade of grass!” I haven’t forgotten that lesson. Sure enough, man has gone to the moon and back, and man has done much more. Man has even learned to clone animals and humans, but man will never be able to make a blade of grass. Author Pat Lamb (FILE) Some of the best teaching parents can do comes at opportune moments when least expected. Impromptu teaching of values can only come if a parent’s heart is right and the desire to teach is there. Just as we walk every day and never give a thought to the grass we are treading upon, so do we often let day after day go by and never give a thought to the many opportunities for teaching children. The best planned lessons from the most educated of teachers may not be as effective as a lesson given from the heart of a dad. Sure, mom has plenty of input, but there is something extra special when a dad puts his effort into working with his children. A dad should think of the home as his piece of the world. It is his to govern and support. It is something he owns in partnership with mom. Mom is his helper as he rules his “little country”. Whether or not a dad wants this responsibility, it is his, and God will hold him accountable for how he conducts himself with this assignment. In God’s sight, just because a man left a home, his responsibilities have not been erased. Bringing children into the world places the responsibility of rearing them squarely on the dads. Nothing can take that away. This Father’s Day, let us be grateful and express that gratefulness to our dads. There are many fine dads who take their responsibilities very seriously and they deserve to be honored. Oh, that there were more dads who did so!

bransonglobe.com STATE Comparisons drawn between Floyd’s death and Missouri case O’FALLON, Mo. (AP) — The Missouri NAACP and black lawmakers on Friday urged a new investigation into the death of an African American jail inmate who died in 2017 in a similar circumstance to George Floyd — with a white law enforcement officer’s knee on his neck. Tory Sanders, 28, died at the Mississippi County Jail in rural Charleston, Missouri, about 150 miles south of St. Louis. He had several encounters with officers while jailed and a mental health counselor determined he was suffering from paranoia. Sheriff Cory Hutcheson and eight others then entered the cell to subdue him. A wrongful death lawsuit said Hutcheson jammed his knee against Sanders’ neck and kept it there for up to three minutes, even as a police officer urged him to stop. Sanders fell into unconsciousness and died. Missouri’s attorney general at the time, Josh Hawley, investigated but declined to file charges after medical experts concluded that Sanders died of “excited delirium,” not from the knee to the neck or other efforts to control him. During a news conference Friday, Missouri NAACP President Nimrod Chapel Jr. urged Mississippi County Prosecuting Attorney Darren Cann to file murder charges against Hutcheson and other officers. But Cann, in a phone interview, said he turned the case over to the attorney general’s office in 2017 because of a conflict of interest — one of his employees is related to Hutcheson. That conflict still exists, so it would be up to the attorney general’s office to reopen the case, Cann said. Eric Schmitt took over as attorney general after Hawley, a Republican, was elected to the U.S. Senate in 2018. Schmitt’s spokesman, Chris Nuele, said in a statement that the attorney general “is committed to thoroughly reviewing all existing and any new evidence to determine whether to reopen the matter. Additionally, we hope to sit down with the NAACP and other interested parties to discuss further.” Hawley’s spokeswoman, Kelli Ford, said in a statement that when he was attorney general, Hawley “went to court to have the sheriff removed from office, stripped of his badge, charged with state and federal crimes, and sent to prison. Senator Hawley supports any further prosecutorial action the evidence will support.” Hutcheson does not have a listed phone number and a phone message left with his attorney was not immediately returned.

The video has sparked protests against police brutality and discrimination around the world. Democratic state Sen. Karla May of St. Louis said Missourians can’t ignore such a similar case “in our own back yard.” “In light of what’s happening today in the protests, people who are part of this system of injustice need to be prosecuted in this case,” May said. The state NAACP issued a MIssouri “travel advisory” in July 2017 over concerns about whether travelers’ civil rights would be respected. The resolution cited legislative action such as passage of a bill weakening the state’s anti-discrimination law, as well as Sanders’ death and racist incidents. Sanders, of Nashville, Tennessee, ran out of gas on May 4, 2017, in southern Missouri, then hitchhiked and ended up in Charleston. A day later, Sanders went to the police and told officers there was a warrant out for his arrest in Nashville related to an altercation with the mother of his children. The wrongful death lawsuit said Sanders also told officers: “I need to see a mental health doctor to save my life and my kids’ life.” He was taken to the jail, where a mental health counselor concluded Sanders was suffering from paranoia as a result of substance abuse, and that he should be hospitalized for observation. But he remained in his cell. That night, Hutcheson led a team of officers and jailers, wearing helmets and vests and holding a large shield, into Sanders’ cell, according to the lawsuit. Sanders was tackled, pepper sprayed, hit with a stun gun and punched while “pleading for help and struggling to stay alive,” the lawsuit stated. According to the lawsuit, Hutcheson pressed his left knee on top of Sanders’ neck. A Charleston police officer told Hutcheson at least three times to remove the pressure. “No, I’m good,” the sheriff responded. “No lifesaving measures were taken” after Sanders stopped breathing, the suit stated. Emergency medical personnel arrived and took him to a hospital, where he died a short time later. Though not charged in Sanders’ death, Hutcheson now 36, was sentenced last year to six months in federal prison for unrelated crimes: wire fraud and identity theft. He resigned after pleading guilty and can no longer work as a law enforcement officer. Federal prosecutors said Hutcheson used a fraudulent process to track the whereabouts of more than 200 cellphone users, including a judge and a former sheriff. He never explained his motive. Hutcheson was elected in 2016. The former deputy ran on a pledge to attack the drug culture that permeated his county. Hutcheson arrested 88 drug dealers in his first 90 days as sheriff, his attorney said at Hutcheson’s sentencing. But Hutcheson himself was arrested in April 2017, just three months into his term. In addition to the cellphone tracking allegations, he was accused of roughing up a 77-year-old beauty salon owner in a dispute over Hutcheson’s sisterin-law’s paycheck. The woman suffered a heart attack during the encounter but recovered. The state charges were dropped as part of the federal plea agreement. Let Us Entertain You! See the World’s Most Entertaining...

Create a mix of things they need and be ready to welcome wildlife into your outdoor space. Three Basics All wildlife requires three elements to survive: food, water and shelter. But a toad’s needs for each differ from those of a blue jay or a butterfly or a rabbit. You can attract the greatest variety and number of wildlife by providing a variety of sources of food, water and shelter. Diverse habitat supports diverse wildlife. Planting an assortment of trees, shrubs, flowers and grasses will provide alternatives for food and shelter. You can meet wildlife’s critical water needs by maintaining a bird bath or by constructing a small pool. Add feeders and nest boxes to provide more food and shelter. Create an edge by planting trees and shrubs around open areas. An edge is where vegetation borders an open area. Edges attract more wildlife than an area solely of cover or open land. Go Native Get creative when you’re starting a new landscape and check out native Missouri wildflowers, trees, and grasses. Not only do native plant species thrive in Missouri weather, the plants are beautiful and support wildlife. Hummingbirds, songbirds, butterflies, lizards and even toads will become interesting neighbors in your yard. Gardens are amazing spaces, transforming the outside of your home into a special place to relax and play. Wildflowers give artistry to landscapes. Inspiring forms, textures and colors, each adding splendor to your garden. To support nature near your home, try planting asters and sunflowers. These plants support the most wildlife. Asters are food for a large number of butterfly and moth species. Even violets, wild geraniums and black-eyed susans are favorites among insect pollinators.

14 • June 10-11, 2020 SPORTS (AP) Conor McGregor has announced his retirement for the third time in four years. McGregor abruptly made his latest dubious declaration Sunday morning on his Twitter account, where the former two-division UFC champion also announced his retirement in 2016 and 2019. “Hey guys I’ve decided to retire from fighting,” McGregor wrote in a caption below a photo of him and his mother. “Thank you all for the amazing memories! What a ride it’s been!” The 31-year-old Irish superstar revitalized his combat sports career in January with an impressive firstround stoppage of Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone at UFC 246. McGregor (22-4) hadn’t won a fight in a mixed martial arts cage or a boxing ring since 2016, but he remained the UFC’s brightest star and biggest financial draw. UFC President Dana White has already said McGregor is next in line for a title shot at the winner of lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov’s bout with Justin Gaethje this summer. White was still willing to take McGregor’s retirement announcement at face value — at least publicly — when he learned about it at his news conference following UFC 250 in Las Vegas. “If Conor McGregor feels he wants to retire, you know my feelings about retirement,” White said. “You should absolutely do it. And I love Conor. ... There’s a handful of people that have made this really fun for me, and he’s one of them.” Retirements are a time-honored bransonglobe.com Conor McGregor makes 3rd retirement announcement in 4 years device for gathering attention and increased bargaining power in combat sports. From Muhammad Ali and Floyd Mayweather to Tito Ortiz and Chuck Liddell, countless champions of boxing and MMA have gone back on their solemn announcements whenever need or ego brought them back to the sport. McGregor made his first Twitter retirement announcement in April 2016. Three years later, McGregor retired again in March 2019 in what White believed was a gambit to entice the UFC to offer him an ownership stake in the company. McGregor began talking about new fights shortly afterward, and he eventually returned to face Cerrone in early 2020. The loquacious McGregor has long proven that his pronouncements can’t be taken as gospel truth. Earlier this year, McGregor “accepted” future fights against former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva and long-retired boxing superstar Oscar De La Hoya with little reason to think they will ever happen.
