The idea of a sacred vow to service originated during the time of the Roman empire. Roman soldiers swore these promises, or oaths, to specific generals, leaders, and wars. For the United States however, the meaning of an oath changed on the 29th of September, 1789. This oath, which all members of service in the United States took, was different from the oaths of the Romans. The Oath of Enlistment for members of the armed services of the United States isn’t a question of allegiance to a temporary leader of war, but to the constitution and the country it defines Two years after the Constitution was signed during the first session of the first congress on June 1,1789, the first bill was passed and became law.

Classes will feature a mixture of lecture and hands-on experiences. “It’s a way for citizens to kind of peal back the layers and let them see what the department’s role is,” said Sgt. Stan Kaufmann. There is no cost Offering this course “gives us a connection to the community,” Kaufmann explained. “A lot of these people going through there, they will help us in other avenues, like ‘National Night Out,’” he said. “I’ve been flagged down several times by Academy graduates. They’re more comfortable relaying concerns about what’s going on in the community and kind of be your eyes and ears, and let us know what’s going on.” One benefit to the community is the Branson Citizens Police Academy Alumni Association (BCPAAA), a group of 64 members from the Academy’s classes of 2017, 2018 and 2019.

The BCPAAA has helped the BPD with National Night Out, Shop with a Hero, Law Enforcement Week, awards of New Branson Citizens Police Academy graduation, assisted with Meals for Police Officers, assisted with serving refreshment at new officer and new K-9 badge pinnings, and other activities with help may be needed. bransonglobe.com Cris Bohinc serves as the group’s president. The BCPAAA has a full slate of officers as well that serve the organization. Jerry Buckley, who serves as the group’s print/broadcast media representative, called the training “fantastic. I thought I knew a lot about police operations as our son was a reserve police officer for the city of Spokane WA for three years and we prepared tax returns for a number of officers from sheriff to California Highway Patrol during our working days in California. We thought we heard it all. We didn’t. Nothing is held back in the evening classes conveniently offered after work hours.” Buckley also offered praise for the BCPAAA. “Our members are dedicated citizens joined together to support our Branson Police Department.” Apply for the 2020 Branson Citizens Police Academy at www.bransonmo.gov/628/Special-Programs#CPA or in person at the Police Department.

Published or unpublished letters become the property of the newspaper and will not be returned. All letters must include name, address, and verifiable phone number. The unstated thing about such questions is the assumption that you were a spectator of one kind or another when something momentous happened. And for most Americans, that’s how we experience historic events — as spectators. The 9/11 attacks were a huge event for most of us who were alive then. But how many lives did 9/11 directly and meaningfully affect, particularly outside New York and Washington? Not many in the grand scheme of things. (Hassles at airports don’t count.) The same goes for wars. Less than 1 percent of Americans are in the military, and less than 10 percent of the adult population has ever served. Even among those who wear a uniform, only a fraction see sustained combat. Most historic events of the last half-century, even if significant and tragic, are remembered largely as moments on television. Despite the tendency of politicians to say, “If we can put a man on the moon . . . ,” the number of people among that “we” is only in the thousands. The rest of America experienced it vicariously on TV. This isn’t to minimize the importance of those events or the emotional effect they had on society. The Cuban Missile Crisis directly involved a small number of players, but millions or even billions of people felt they had skin in the game. There’s a huge psychological difference between watching and participating, and I don’t think anyone is appreciating the difference. For decades after the Great Depression and World War II, the question wasn’t, “Where were you . . . ?” It was, “What did you do?” or, “What happened to you?” During World War I, not everybody served, but nearly everybody knew someone who did and felt the effects of war mobilization — the censorship, the hysteria, the rationing of food, etc. The consequences of those shared experiences were profound, changing our politics and culture in countless ways. This pandemic is the first event in my life that approaches anything like that. And it’s going to get much more intense before it’s all over. A recent NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll found that 59 percent of Americans don’t know anyone who has contracted COVID-19. A week prior, the same pollsters reported that 70 percent of Americans didn’t know anyone who’d been infected. If even the rosiest predictions are accurate, it won’t be long until every American knows someone who contracted the virus, and perhaps someone who died from it. How much of the political squabbling right now is attributable to the fact that many of the people protesting in relatively unscathed regions are still watching this pandemic unfold as an event on TV and not as a menace in their own lives? It’s understandable that if you don’t know anyone suffering from COVID-19 or helping those suffering from it, you might feel that stay-at-home orders are an overreaction. But that’s probably not going to last, particularly if the experts are right that we’ll see a major resurgence in the fall. Whether the lockdowns are warranted in every corner of the country is a different conversation. I think there are good arguments (and bad ones!) on both sides of those debates. But if everybody eventually knows somebody who has died, or nearly died, in this pandemic, the conversations to come are going to be very different. Already, the economic calamity the pandemic has caused is guaranteed to blow up a lot of the comfortable assumptions that have defined the contours BransonGlobe Your source for local news and entertainment Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances. info@BransonGlobe.com • Phone: (417) 334-9100 • Fax: (417) 334-3767 • 1447 US Hwy. 248, Suite EE, Branson, MO 65616 BransonGlobe.com bransonglobe.com How our shared Coronavirus experience will change us of our politics for the last two decades. Consider immigration, which has roiled our politics for so long. Whatever your position is on the issue, the old equation has new variables. In a country with millions out of work, dismissing some work as “jobs Americans won’t do” may well sound offensive (and untrue) in ways it didn’t before. As agonizingly slow as the process already feels, it’s a sure bet that America and the developed world will emerge from the pandemic far sooner than poorer nations. Inviting immigrants from places where the virus is still thriving — regardless of whether you think it’s right or wrong — will simply have a very different political resonance than it did two months ago. That’s just one obvious example. There are far more unknown unknowns waiting for us in the years ahead, because we’re about to enter an era when every single American can start a conversation by asking “What did you do?” or “What happened to you when...?” (The comments on this page are the opinions of the writer, and not necessarily those of Branson Globe, or its staff.

bransonglobe.com LOCAL • ESSAY Continued from page 1 ify the wording to functionality. Additionally, on October 5, 1962, the original wording “bear true faith and allegiance to the United States of America” changed to “I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States” to show that allegiance was not to the country, but the constitution that validates the existence of the nation. The formation of the oath and its amendments has been undertaken with the utmost gravity and diligence to ensure a firm foundation for the men and women who have and continue to make the sacrifice of service. Break down each segment of the oath and explain what it means to you. The Oath of Enlistment begins with the enlisted stating their name and solemnly swearing to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States.” This beginning is significant because it shows the individuality of service in the statement of name and the promise to protect not a fleeting symbol or leader, but the permanent entity of the Constitution of the United States; without which there would not be a nation to protect. Next, the oath continues to support and defend “against all enemies, foreign and domestic.” This promise of protection is a important because it specifies enemies both external and internal providing allegiance to the whole of the nation and not a faction of its population. The oath continues “that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same” showing that it is an oath undertaken independently to support liberty through actions taken by the individual. Next the oath continues “and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me” demonstrates submission to higher command and a promise to follow orders thereof. Because the oath previously acknowledged the supremacy of the constitution within which grants the highest military power to the president, the oath is justified in this command to accession. It also provides a legal order of responsibility for military organization which members of the military are to respect. The last part “according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice” is a promise to uphold the rules of the military and respect their authority. It is a statement of compliance to keep order within the service and ensure that all actions executed by service members are in accordance with expected conduct standards. The oath concludes with the statement “So help me God” showing the significance of the commitment just made and the consequences of not abiding by the oath. It is a summons to integrity with consequences more extreme than mere physical ramifications. It is also a plea for divine assistance for a task that is too difficult for men alone to undertake, an encouragement of justice and freedom which are June 12-13, 2020 • 5 sacred and righteous ideals. The Oath of Enlistment was created not as a fancy addition to service but a serious commitment to service. Its creation and modification has provided a well worded and just statement that all is deserving of the members of the military who devote their lives to it. The Oath of Enlistment is a steadfast foundation which a legacy of outstanding service has been built upon.

8 • June 12-13, 2020 LOCAL bransonglobe.com TV pastor Jim Bakker hopes attorney general halts probe Blue Eye, Missouri TV pastor Jim Bakker. (AP) O’FALLON, Mo. (AP) — Missouri-based TV pastor Jim Bakker hopes Arkansas’ attorney general does not obtain personal information of his congregation members as part of an investigation into his false promotion of a product claiming it cured the coronavirus. Bakker’s attorneys said Attorney General Leslie Rutledge’s efforts were an affront to religious freedom and “disturbing,” according to the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette. A civil action was filed late last week on behalf of Bakker and his Morningside Church and Morningside Church Productions, less than three months after the state of Missouri sued Bakker for falsely claiming that a health supplement could cure the coronavirus. Bakker asked a judge to dismiss the state lawsuit in May. His product, ‘Silver Solution,’ is described as a colloidal silver, which is a product often sold on the internet as a dietary supplement. Amanda Priest, an attorney general’s office spokeswoman, said Arkansas consumers were “deceived” by Bakker and may have been harmed “financially and physically” by the pastor’s actions. Jay Nixon, one of Bakker’s attorneys and former governor, said Rutledge’s information-seeking could set a dangerous precedent. “It’s extremely disturbing that this is happening in America and especially in the State of Arkansas,” Nixon stated in a news release. “It’s a very dangerous and sinister overstep when the government demands the names, addresses and personal financial information of church members. It could be your church next.” Another of Bakker’s attorneys, Derek Ankrom, stated that Rutledge’s pursuit of personal information “presents the question of whether a governmental agency may, in the name of ‘consumer protection,’ intrusively supervise, inquire into, censor or punish religiously-motivated speech of a pastor to his congregation.” Priest said the issue is public deception and not religious freedom. She said that though Attorney General Rutledge has a long history of fighting for religious freedom from government overreach, at the same time, she continues to vigorously fight against those who would deceive Arkansans into false cures and fraudulently steal their money.

bransonglobe.com LOCAL Submitted to Branson Globe According to a news release from Lt. Johnathan Tudor, public information officer at Taney County Ambulance District (TCAD), the exclusive ambulance transport provider for Taney County has been awarded both Commission on Accreditation of Ambulance Services and International Academy of Emergency Dispatch Accreditation, putting TCAD among the top ambulance services in the country. In addition, TCAD Paramedics have one of the highest cardiac arrest save rates in the nation. The national average of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest survival rate is 4 percent. Because of TCAD’s aggressive public access defibrillation program, free hands-only CPR classes, progressive county-wide medical protocals and highly trained paramedics, Taney County has a 35 percent cardiac arrest survival rate. With these impressive - and comforting - statistics, it’s worthwhile to get to know a little more about the ambulance service and paramedics serving the citizens of Taney County. Established by a vote of the citizens of Taney County in 1976, the district is a political subdividion of the State of Missouri. Except for sharing the name, TCAD is not associated with Taney County government or any city within Taney County. TCAD Paramedics is governed by a 6 member elected Board of Directors and operates on an annual budget comprised of a nearly 50/50 split between patient billing and sales tax revenue. Board Members are elected to serve two year terms with elections alternating between various voting precincts in Taney County. TCAD’s authority to operate exclusively in Taney County is protected by a county ordinance and Missouri State law helping TCAD to balance world-class ambulance service to both the urban areas and extremely rural areas of Taney County. Without this protection, ambulance service to some parts of the county would be so cost prohibitive that no ambulance company would be able to provide service. Since TCAD is a separate entity from local governments and the hospital, TCAD Paramedics can transport a patient to any area hospital. The transport destination is the decision of the patient, except in critical or life threatening situations where the paramedics will transport to the most appropriate facility. Currently, TCAD offers transport from a scene (accident or medical emergency) to Cox Medical Center Branson, Cox South Hospital Springfield, Mercy Hospital Springfield, Cox North Hospital Springfield and North Arkansas Regional Medical Center in Harrison, Arkansas. TCAD also provides patient transfer services from Cox Medical Center Branson. Patients are routinely transferred to other facilities for services that are not available locally. Because of Medicare rules, TCAD or any other ambulance service cannot transport to Urgent Care centers or doctors offices. In some special circumstances, ambulances can be used for transport to doctors appointments, dialysis or other situations, but these require planning and coordination between the facility, TCAD and the patients insurance company. TCAD bills for patient transport in accordance with Medicare and Medicaid standards. TCAD’s transport rates are set by the Board of Directors and can be found on the website www.TCAD.net/customers/patients. With very few exceptions, TCAD does not require upfront payment for services. TCAD will never require any type of payment or proof of insurance for emergency transport. Anyone who wants to learn more about the ambulance services ofLet Us Entertain You!

10 • June 12-13, 2020 STATE Submitted to Branson Globe A national leader in helping black and Latino young men thrive in college is moving its office to Missouri State University. The Student African American Brotherhood (SAAB) and Missouri State recently signed a 2-year agreement to house the operation in the Park Central Office Building in downtown Springfield. The university will provide the space and utilities to SAAB at no cost. “As SAAB embarks upon its 30th anniversary in October, we remain committed to building on our model to assist the educational advancement of young men of color,” SAAB CEO Dr. Tyrone Bledsoe said. “We relish the chance to join the good people in Springfield, especially MSU and the Community Foundation of the Ozarks (CFO), to take important and necessary steps to increase diversity, equity and inclusion in the city, surrounding region and beyond. “The spirit of the leadership in the city of Springfield is impressive and contagious.” The CFO and the Missouri Scholarship and Loan Foundation provided funding for SAAB’s relocation from Toledo, Ohio. “We’ve had the has a national network of more than 250 chapters on middle school, high school, college and university campuses in 39 states. It turns a key barrier to minority male achievement – lack of a strong support system – into a major strength. Its cause is threefold: privilege of supporting Dr. Bledsoe and his organization for several years,” said Brian Fogle, president and chief executive officer of CFO. “We see the difference the Brother to Brother program has made in the success of under-represented students in Springfield and across the country. “This also benefits our state. SAAB can focus on expanding additional programs in other higher education institutions in Missouri.” President Clif Smart, Dr. Tyrone Bledsoe, Brian Fogle and SAAB consultant Steve Greeley visit in Springfield.

Enable young men of color to be recognized for their talent, drive and contributions to society. “Our university and the city have enthusiastically embraced SAAB and our local chapter, ‘Bridge Springfield: Brother to Brother (B2B),’ which was established in 2014,” said H.

bransonglobe.com STATE Man charged with running over Springfield police officer SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) — A man who allegedly ran over a Springfield police officer before he was shot by another officer told police at the scene “You guys knew you had this coming,” according to court documents. Jon Routh, 28, who was homeless, was charged Wednesday with assaulting a special victim and armed criminal action. Prosecutors alleged Routh ran over Officer Mark Priebe on Tuesday in the parking lot of the Springfield police department. Priebe had come out of the headquarters after Routh urinated on the office’s front door, according to court records. When Priebe tried to flag down Routh to talk to him, Routh accelerated his SUV toward the officer, hitting him and dragging him until he hit a barrier outside the departMissouri woman prompts redefinition of ‘racism’ ST. LOUIS, Mo. (AP) – Merriam-Webster is revising its definition of racism after a Missouri woman’s emails claimed it fell short of including the systemic oppression of certain groups of people. Kennedy Mitchum, who lives in the St. Louis suburb Florissant, said people would argue with her about the definition of racism and she realized the problem was in the Merriam-Webster’s dictionary, KMOV-TV reported. “It’s not just disliking someone because of their race,” Mitchum wrote in a Facebook post. “This current fight we are in is evidence of that, lives are at stake because of the systems of oppression that go hand-in-hand with racism.” The revision comes against the backdrop of protests around the country against police brutality after the death of George Floyd, a black man who died after a Minneapolis police officer pinned his neck to the ground. The Merriam-Webster online dictionary first defines racism as “a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race.” Mitchum, who recently graduated with a degree in law, politics and society, said that definition was too simple. “So, a couple weeks ago, I said this is the last argument I’m going to have about this. I know what racism is, I’ve experienced it time and time and time again in a lot of different ways, so enough is enough. So, I emailed them about how I felt about it. Saying this needs to change,” she said. Peter Sokolowski, editor at large at Merriam-Webster, said in an emailed statement to The Associated Press that the dictionary’s second definition is “divided to express, first, explicit institutional bias against people because of their race, and, second, a broader implicit bias that can also result in an asymmetrical power structure.” “This second definition covers the sense that Ms. Mitchum was seeking, and we will make its wording even more clear in our next release,” he said. “This is the kind of continuous revision that is part of the work of keeping the dictionary up to date, based on rigorous criteria and research we employ in order to describe the language as it is actually used.” ment. Another officer shot Routh after he refused to get out of the vehicle. Priebe sustained rib fractures and a spinal cord injury, police said Wednesday. He had surgery late Tuesday evening to stabilize his spine. Routh was treated for his gunshot wound and then taken to Greene County Jail. He does not yet have an attorney. Routh reportedly told police he was being harassed by people sent by law enforcement. He said he didn’t intend to hurt anyone and blacked out when Priebe came out of the station. Investigators confiscated Routh’s cell phone. They say just two hours before the incident, he texted two people, “apparently I can’t get a job unless I loose Lillith ... I’m going to run a cop over I think.” June 12-13, 2020 • 11

(AP) — The co-owners of a family-owned Missouri newspaper resigned from their positions in protest Wednesday after the publication of a racist syndicated cartoon that depicted a black man stealing a purse from a white woman while hailing funding cuts to police. The cartoon published in the Washington Missourian shows a white woman asking for someone to call 911, but the masked black man says, “Good luck with that, lady ... we defunded the police.” The cartoon was published amid protests across the nation against police brutality and the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. Some protesters are pushing to “ defund the police”, a wide-ranging catch-all term for shifting law enforcement resources, over the death of Floyd and other black Americans killed by law enforcement. Washington Missourian owners and sisters Susan Miller and Jeanne Miller Wood said in an apology that the newspaper’s publisher — their father — made the decision to run the cartoon and didn’t let them know in advance. “As co-owners we believe it was racist and in no circumstance should have been published,” they wrote of the cartoon. “We apologize to our readers and our staff for the obvious pain and offense it caused. For the record, we abhor the sentiment and denounce ANY form of racism.” Publisher Bill Miller Sr. subsequently wrote in a column that the cartoon was meant to convey opposition to defunding police but was “racially insensitive.” “It was poor judgement on my part and for that I sincerely apologize,” he wrote. The co-owners said they resigned in protest because they don’t have editorial control to prevent something like this happening again. “Many families have been having these painbransonglobe.com Missouri paper owners resign in protest over racist cartoon ful discussions in the privacy of their homes,” they wrote. “We unfortunately have to have this debate in a more public way.” The cartoon was distributed by Creators, which in a statement said: “Black Lives Matter. Black voices matter. We condemn racism in all forms.” The company has pulled the cartoon and says it’s not aware of it being published anywhere else. “As a media distributor, Creators neither controls nor censors the content we receive from our writers and artists,” the company’s statement said. “However, in this instance, this editorial cartoon should not have been sent and we have pulled the cartoon from all distribution platforms.” Cartoonist Tom Stiglich, who made the cartoon, told St. Louis television station KSDK-TV that the nation needs “more law and order right now, not less.” “The rioting and looting was extremely disheartening,” he told the station. “That cartoon was based solely on violent crime numbers here in the US. To ignore that would be doing a disservice to the reader.”

bransonglobe.com STATE COLOMBIA, Mo. (AP) — A suburban St. Louis police officer was fired Wednesday after a video posted online appears to show him hitting a man with a police SUV, kicking and punching the man then arresting him. Florissant Police Chief Timothy Fagan announced the immediate dismissal of Detective Joshua Smith at a news conference. No charges have been filed against Smith, a nine-year veteran of the force. An attorney representing Smith said what happened was an accident. The department doesn’t have a police union. “I have been an advocate against police abuse and misconduct my entire career,” Scott Rosenblum told The Associated Press. “I believe what this detective did was simply an accident,” Rosenblum said. He made a point of referring to the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis as “clearly murder.” St. Louis County police say the arrest happened around 11:30 p.m. on June 2 in Dellwood, Missouri. The events were captured by a resident’s doorbell camera and posted online by media outlet Real STL news. The video shows the SUV driving fast at the man, striking him as he runs past a home. The uniformed officer gets out of the car and, as the man falls onto his back, the officer kicks at him then jumps on top of him, punching him then cuffing him. All the while, the man being chased is shouting “OK” and eventually “help.” Fagan said the man was treated at the hospital for an ankle injury. Fagan said he and others with him face charges for possession of drug paraphernalia and resisting arrest. Florissant Police Sgt. Craig DeHart said Smith is white, but that he wasn’t authorized to discuss the ongoing investigation, including the race of the arrested man. Nurse fired from troubled VA home gets $72,000 settlement ST. LOUIS (AP) — A nurse who was fired from a troubled veterans home in St. Louis for raising concerns about a colleague who was later convicted in a triple murder has won a $72,000 settlement from the state. The settlement goes to Margaret Coulter, who had been a registered nurse supervisor at the St. Louis Veterans Home in north St. Louis County when she was fired in 2017 after informing police that Jerome Leon Buress Jr. worked at the home, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported. Coulter’s lawsuit against the Missouri Veterans Commission recounts that she told a Ferguson police officer that Buress, who was wanted in the killings, worked at the home. She then told the home’s administrator about Buress, saying she was worried about the safety of veterans and their families. Buress was arrested within a day. Five days later, the lawsuit said, Coulter was fired and was told by the administrator that it was “because she spoke to the police regarding Buress,” her lawsuit said. Buress is serving a life sentence for fatally shooting 24-year-old Jessica Garth and 27-year-old Derrick Irving in front of their daughters. He then fatally shot 37-year-old Julian Hayes as Hayes tried to escape, then shot 7-year-old Deniya Irving in the head. She survived but suffered brain damage. “I want to assure the citizens of Florissant and communities all around the country that that I have heard your concerns and demands for justice in this June 12-13, 2020 • 13 Missouri officer fired after video shows him striking man case,” Fagan said. Attorney Jerryl T. Christmas is representing the man struck by Smith and spoke at the protest, The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported. He used a baseball analogy. “He got fired, so we’re on first base. But we haven’t scored,” Christmas said, calling for Smith’s arrest.

14 • June 12-13, 2020 NATIONAL NEW YORK (AP) — On a late Friday afternoon, there is joy and fraternity found on a blocked-off street in Manhattan’s Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood. Neighbors chat, dogs get acquainted and above all, there’s laughter. After three months of sheltering-in-place, this scene of normalcy is still not commonplace as New York City tests the waters of socializing, within the prescribed limits.

(AP Photo/Mark Lennihan) Steve Grillo lives on the street and is a walking advertisement touting his West Side community. “Everybody’s a good person,” he says. After his longtime role as an intern on the Howard Stern Show, Grillo co-owned a pizzeria there in 2009 and “that’s when I fell in love with the neighborhood.” There was no hanging out with friends on the streets most of March and April but by the end of May, “the neighbors,” as Grillo calls them, turned out to support the owners of corner bars and restaurants. “It’s ‘Cheers’ but in Hell’s Kitchen,” he says referencing the popular 1980s sitcom. There were takeout food orders and drinks were mixed at the door. And a crowd gathered, which brought the police, who said they couldn’t be there. Following that, police placed a barricade, on occasion, to block traffic traffic and allow for street mingling. An impromptu block party formed with bransonglobe.com Street gatherings bring joy in Hell’s Kitchen in pandemic the police in attendance to monitor. Since the end of May, barricade or no barricade, the neighbors come out and line the side street sidewalks. Saturday, Grillo hosted a wedding reception underneath a canopy outside his apartment after the ceremony was held on his building’s roof. The newlyweds were neighbors, of course, and had planned to be married at West Point on the D-Day anniversary but that was scrubbed due to the pandemic. He says this outdoor camaraderie wasn’t part of the neighborhood vibe before the coronavirus hit New York City so hard and the killing of George Floyd convulsed the country. “Good people find good people. The pandemic has made us bond even more.” Answers to ‘Fun for All’ puzzle

bransonglobe.com NATIONAL BOSTON (AP) — She wore a mask and sat across the nursing home patio from her elderly mother, but Marcie Abramson’s emotions were on full display as the two connected in person for the first time in nearly three months. Like many states, Massachusetts in mid-March limited visits to nursing homes and other long-term care facilities to protect those most vulnerable to the coronavirus, which has exacted a heavy toll among older Americans. More than 60% of the state’s nearly 7,500 COVID-19 deaths have involved nursing home residents. Nationally, over 35,500 people have died from coronavirus outbreaks at nursing homes and longterm care facilities, about a third of the national toll, according to a running tally by The Associated Press. But in Massachusetts, in-person visits resumed Wednesday with masks, social distancing — and plenty of tears and laughter. “You wanna give me a kiss?” Abramson called out to her 89-yearold mother, Cynthia Abramson, at the Hebrew Rehabilitation Center in Boston in the pair’s first encounter since the pandemic began. Kisses were strictly off-limits, so the pair exchanged an “air hug.” “Oh, Ma! I love you so much! I really, really missed you,” the daughter gushed, choking back tears. ”The day finally came. The day is here. I get to visit you.” Under strict Massachusetts guidelines aimed at avoiding a spike in coronavirus cases, visits must be scheduled and take place in designated outdoor areas, with the exception of end-of-life situations. Nursing home residents are allowed only two visitors at a time, and everyone must wear a mask and stay at least 6 feet (2 meters) apart. Residents with confirmed or possible cases of the disease cannot have visitors, although those who have recovered can. Abramson and her husband, Jeffrey Hunt, had their temperature taken and were screened for symptoms — additional steps that all visitors must take. Facilities also are taking care to disinfect chairs and NOW OFFERING LEASE TO OWN OPTIONS 55+ Gated Master-Planned Community Located on Branson Hills Parkway in Branson, MO • Maintenance Free Living • Clubhouse • Discounted Membership at Branson Hills Golf Club • Amazing Location • Beautiful Valley Views other objects that visitors have used or touched. “I have to say that I was nervous to see my mom today,” she said. “I was really, really nervous. I didn’t sleep because she had been thinking that today may never come, that no one would ever be able to visit again and that’s where she would end up. ... The emotional and mental toll on people has been extremely difficult.” Hunt said his mother-in-law developed some major health challenges just as the pandemic began. June 12-13, 2020 • 15 Amid tears and laughter, visits resume in nursing homes “So her ability to just process information and understand what’s happening to her, what’s going on around her, was significantly compromised. And that just made the whole quarantine situation exponentially more difficult for her,” he said.

16 • June 12-13, 2020 SPORTS bransonglobe.com With a swing and silence, PGA Tour gets back to business FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — With one swing met with silence, the PGA Tour got back to business Thursday at Colonial. Ryan Palmer was selected to hit the opening tee shot at the Charles Schwab Challenge as a Colonial member who raised money for COVID-19 pandemic relief through his “Pros For A Purpose” campaign. So quiet was the golf course without any spectators allowed that the starter introducing Palmer on the first tee could barely be heard from 40 feet away because of the hum of a nearby generator. PGA Tour Commissioner Jay Monahan watched from the starter’s booth — a rarity for him to be on the first tee of any opening round — and gave Palmer, Brian Harman and Bill Haas a thumbsup as they walked off the tee. Players were back to wearing pants. Caddies wore bibs with two names — the player and a health care worker. Every shot counted. That was the only semblance of normalcy. The starter on the 10th tee, wearing a mask, introduced a player and there was no noise until his club made contact. The last PGA Tour event was March 12 at The Players Championship for the opening round. Fans were allowed that day, though it was a small crowd given the day of the week. The tour first announced there’d be no fans the rest of the week, and by the end of the day canceled the tournament and eventually 10 more. There were 90 days between official shots.

(AP Photo/David J. Phillip) personnel were tested for the coronavirus upon arrival — 487 tests, all negative — and everyone has their temperature checked before getting into the parking lot each day, along with filling out a health questionnaire. Players had the option of a designated hotel — some chose private housing, while Russell Knox drove his tour bus from Florida — and were encouraged to avoid contact outside the course. That was not monitored, as the players are independent contractors. Players also were told they should handle their own clubs, and caddies should wipe down flagsticks after handling them. That, too, was largely ignored in practice rounds. Rory McIlroy asked TV viewers for patience because “it’s easy to fall back into old habits.” Monahan, asked Thursday morning what would constitute a successful tournament, said, “Getting to next week.” He said in a news conference Wednesday that the tour has passed big hurdles to get back to play. “But now we get inside the field of play,” he said. “Now you think about all the things that we’re asking our players and caddies and everybody that’s here in this small bubble to do, we need to execute on that.” Dustin Johnson tees off at the 11th hole during the first round of the Charles Schwab Challenge golf tournament at the Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth, Texas.

18 • June 12-13, 2020 CURIOUSITIES Alligator rumored to have been Hitler’s dies in Moscow MOSCOW (AP) — An alligator that many people believe once belonged to Adolf Hitler has died in the Moscow Zoo. The zoo said the alligator, named Saturn, was about 84 years old when he died on Friday. According to the zoo, Saturn was born in the United States and later sent to the Berlin Zoo, from which he escaped when the zoo was bombed in 1943. His whereabouts were unknown until 1946, when British soldiers found him and gave him to the Soviet Union, the zoo said. “Almost immediately, the myth was born that he was allegedly in the collection of Hitler and not in the Berlin Zoo,” the zoo said in a statement. But, it noted, “animals are not involved in war and politics and it is absurd to blame them for human sins.” Boy, 6, cracks open robbery case by reeling in sunken safe JOHNS ISLAND, S.C. (AP) — A 6-year-old boy helped crack open a nearly decade-old robbery case when he reeled in a locked safe from the bottom of a South Carolina lake. Knox Brewer of Johns Island took up “magnet fishing” and began hunting for metal objects underwater as a way to pass time during the coronavirus pandemic, his family members told WCIVTV this week. The boy was out with his family at Whitney Lake this month when the magnet attached to his line stuck to something heavy in the mud below, the news outlet reported. With the help of a bystander, Knox pulled in and pried open bransonglobe.com what turned out to be a waterlogged lockbox containing debris-covered jewelry and credit cards, as well as a checkbook, according to a video of the discovery. “I knew the right thing to do was go ahead and call the local authorities, get them involved and try to solve this mystery,” the child’s father, Jonathan Brewer, told the outlet. Authorities determined the sunken safe belonged to a woman who lived across the street from the lake. She said it had been stolen from her home eight years ago, the outlet reported. While most of the expensive items had been taken, the find still turned out to be a valuable catch, according to the Brewers. They said they were able to reunite her with charms from an old bracelet. “The first thing that she did was just kneel down, hug Knox and thanked him and thanked him for bringing that closure to her,” Jonathan Brewer said.
