bransonglobe.com LOCAL June 3-4, 2020 • 3 Consumers get online tool to shop for meats By Mary Schuermann Kuhlman, Courtesy of Public News Service JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. - There’s a new tool to help both Missouri consumers and farmers affected by recent meat shortages. The Missouri Farm Bureau has launched a new database of farmers who sell their meat products directly to consumers. Over the past several weeks, many shoppers have been shocked to discover shortages of meats available for sale at their local grocers. However Kelly Smith, senior director of marketing commodities with the Missouri Farm Bureau, explains there’s no shortage of livestock. “There’s plenty of livestock, both beef, pork, lamb and poultry,” says Smith. “The bottleneck is at the commercial processing facilities. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, there are issues with having enough workers available to process the animals.” The directory is arranged by county, listing more than 500 farmers. It also includes processors that offer services, both to livestock producers and consumers. Find it online at mofb.org. Smith says the new directory seems to be very popular so far. “Within the first hour that we did a social media post and the website was live with this information, we got over 550 shares and about 2,200 looks at the website with that,” says Smith. “And it’s just been increasing since.” Smith said the directory is likely to expand to include other locally-produced foods. “We’re going to keep this as an ongoing project, just because of the issues that have been brought forward with national, regional and local supply chains,” says Smith. “Not only for meat, but other food products. We’ll probably have an opportunity to expand as we move forward.” Submitted to Branson Globe Kidney stones are common, but can disrupt a patient’s life when they keep coming back. That’s why Cox Medical Center Branson’s urology team is taking a new, comprehensive approach to help medically manage them. The Metabolic Stone Clinic From left, Cox Branson’s urology team includes Steve Berkstresser, PA, and urologist Dr. Jerry Givens. (Submitted to Branson Globe) aims to find the root cause of recurring stones by analyzing a patient’s medical history and their diet – a component often overlooked when putting together a treatment plan. “A person’s nutrition is a huge part of the puzzle,” explains urolever Missouri consumers and farmers have a new database of farmers who sell their meat products directly to consumers launched by The Missouri Farm Bureau. (Special to Branson Globe) New clinic tackles troubles with recurring kidney stones intake, ogist Dr. Jerry Givens. “Everything from protein salt use, calcium and fluid intake can affect stone development.” Givens says individuals with a history of multiple stones can get a physician’s referral to the clinic, which will perform full assessments on patients the first Wednesday of each month. Appointments take about 30 minutes and include a formal nutritional assessment and an indepth look at medical history. Patients will supply a 24-hour urine test, which Givens said is key to showing which factors in the person’s diet might be causing stones. “Our goal is to prevent stones in the first place so patients don’t have to keep having surgery,” Givens says. “We’ll pull together all our resources and come up with a treatment plan over the course of a few visits. There aren’t a lot of urology groups taking this comprehensive approach, so we’re really excited to be part of a plan that will give our patients answers and a better quality of life.” The Metabolic Stone Clinic is located in the Outpatient Center at Cox Branson.

8 • June 3-4, 2020 STATE Courtesy of Missouri Secretary of State Office Jefferson City, Mo. – Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft reminded Missourians this week that their municipal elections, originally slated for April 7, will be on June 2 as a result of Gov. Michael Parson’s March 13 executive order. Local election authorities have been hard at work readying their offices and polling locations to help ensure the health and safety of voters and poll workers. Over a two-week period in May, Ashcroft visited every one of Missouri’s 116 county clerks and election boards to deliver supplies for poll workers. He traveled more than 5,000 miles while delivering nearly 17,000 face masks, 500 gallons of sanitizer, 16,000 posters and more than 40,000 bright yellow floor strips to encourage physical distancing. Additionally, since April 27, Ashcroft’s office has distributed more than $4.5 million to local election authorities to assist with preparations for upcoming 2020 elections. bransonglobe.com Ashcroft reminds voters of municipal election, applauds preparation “I have been so impressed – but not at all surprised – with Missouri’s local election authorities,” Ashcroft said. “Missouri voters should be proud of the way their election officials have responded, and how they are implementing safeguards to keep voters and poll workers safe when they vote on June 2. Because of their hard work, it will be safe to vote. We have all worked together to protect your right to vote securely and help ensure your health and safety. Springfield releases resolution over protests and police brutality SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — The city of Springfield released a resolution on June 1 expressing how they feel over what happened to George Floyd. City manager, Jason Gage, says the City Council’s resolution is basically a message to our community on behalf of the city on how we should expect to be treated. The resolution specifically says this is in response to what happened to George Floyd. It says what happened to Floyd was an “intentional act of violence and represents a blatant disregard for the dignity and sanctity of human life.” “We share the same chalk, same concerns, same frustrations, same anger as what the community is feeling and what people across the country are feeling,” said Jason Gage, city manager of Springfield, “what happened in Minnesota was inexcusable, fully inexcusable, there’s no way to explain that in a positive light, it should never have happened.” “However, we cannot allow protesters to continue to block major roadways, putting themselves and others at risk and disrupting business and the day-to-day activities of the citizens of Springfield,” said Mayor Ken McClure. Several “Black Lives Matter” supporters say protesting out in public may not be the best idea right now. “It’s ideal if we can stay safe in protest,” said Andre Swai, a Black Lives Matter supporter, “but the reality is even those who go to these protests peacefully, are being met with force.” They said the best way to protest is to stay home to keep everyone safe from the COVID-19 pandemic. But you can still have your voice heard online. “I’m doing everything that I can with petitions, donations, things like that right now,” said Isaac Keller, another supporter of Black Lives Matter. “You can be a part of the Black Lives Matter movement without being black, without protesting, and overall you can literally be anywhere,” said Swai. “Fighting injustice in the 21st century is easy as pie. It literally just takes a retweet, a donation to a link, or for you to sign a simple petition.” Normally in Springfield, groups over 50 can protest on public streets if they file for a permit. However, the city is not issuing them right now due to COVID-19.

bransonglobe.com STATE MDC updates definition of handguns used for deer hunting By Joe Jerek Courtesy of MDC JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – The Missouri Conservation Commission approved an updated definition of a pistol/handgun from the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) for the Wildlife Code of Missouri at its May 28 meeting in Jefferson City. The change provides a formal definition of handguns used for hunting during the alternative-methods portion of the fall deer-hunting season. Originally called the “muzzleloader portion” of the fall firearms deer season, the portion was renamed “alternative methods” in 2012 and MDC added several hunting methods to provide greater opportunities for hunters. Under the Wildlife Code, methods allowed to take deer during the alternative-methods portion include muzzleloaders and archery methods, crossbows, atlatl, handguns and air powered firearms .40 caliber or larger. Long guns, such as rifles and shotguns that fire modern ammunition, are not allowed methods during the alternative methods portion, but are allowed during the other portions of the firearms deer-hunting season. “With gun manufacturers creating new versions of and adaptions to firearms such as AR-style handguns and shortened versions of AR-15-style rifles, we needed to establish a clear definition of what a handgun is for hunting during the alternative-methods portion of the deer-hunting season,” said MDC Protection Chief Randy Doman. “We’ve had situations where hunters were confused about what defined a handgun and asked for clarification.” Doman added that the proposed change does NOT prohibit the use of an AR-15 pistol. “The updated regulation clarifies what a handgun is for deer hunting during the alternative-methods portion,” Doman said. “We want hunters to be able to confidently identify what handgun configurations, with or without the addition of braces or other accessories, are legal to use during this portion of the deer hunting season. The essential distinguishing characteristic of a handgun is its ability to be operated with one hand, although a second hand can be used as a brace. Any firearm with a total length of over 26 inches is considered a rifle.” The Commission considered and adjusted the definition based on public input received during a formal comment period in April. The updated MDC definition of a handgun is, “Any firearm originally designed, made, and intended to fire a projectile (bullet) from one (1) or more barrels when held in one (1) hand, and having a short stock designed to be gripped by one (1) hand at an angle to and extending below the line of the bore(s), with a barrel less than sixteen inches (16”) in length, measured from the face of the bolt or standing breech (excluding any muzzle device not permanently attached to the barrel), and an overall length less than twenty-six inches (26”) as measured between the muzzle of the barrel and the rearmost portion of the firearm (excluding any pistol brace, muzzle device, or other firearm accessory not permanently attached to the firearm). The use of a pistol brace is specifically authorized, and a second hand may be used for support when firing.” “There are several meanings of ‘handgun’ in common usage, which is confusing for hunters and Department staff,” Doman said. “Our updated definition incorporates relevant portions of the definitions from the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms and statutory firearms definitions to establish one, consistent definition for hunting during the alternative methods portion of the firearms deer season.” Doman added that the updated definition of “handgun” does not impact the right to own or possess firearms and is not intended to prohibit the use of AR-platform handguns that meet the barrel and overall length requirements. It also does not prohibit the use of pistol braces. The definition is intended to clearly define a legal hunting method during the alternative-methods portion of the firearms deer hunting season.” June 3-4, 2020 • 9

He will handle costs for the funeral on June 9 in Floyd’s hometown of Houston, as well as other expenses. Floyd, a black man, died May 25 after a white Minneapolis police officer pressed his knee into Floyd’s neck while Floyd was handcuffed and saying that he couldn’t breathe. His death sparked protests in Minneapolis and around the country, some of which became violent. TMZ originally reported Mayweather’s offer, and said he will also pay for services in Minnesota and North Carolina. “He’ll probably get mad at me for saying that, but yes, he is definitely paying for the funeral,” Ellerbe told ESPN.com on Monday.
