Staff Reports BRANSON, Mo – The Branson Police Department arrested six people and discovered drugs and money counterfeiting operations while serving a search warrant on multiple rooms at the Metropolitan Motel, located at 300 Schaefer Drive. on Sunday morning August 9. According to a release from the City of Branson, Branson Police acted on information gathered from several sources. The department, along with the Taney Coun-

ty Sheriff’s Department Special Operations Team served the warrant. A large assortment of drugs and firearms were seized along with evidence of a counterfeiting operation. The Secret Service, and Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms are assisting Branson with this investigation. Six people, including a member of the motel management, were arrested on a variety of charges and transported to the Taney County Jail. Branson Police are commu-

nicating with the Taney County Prosecuting Attorney’s office and Missouri Probation and Parole on the charges. A review of the Metropolitan Motel’s business license and inspection records will be conducted in the city’s efforts to hold motel management accountable for providing safe lodging. No further information on the identities of those arrested or the specific charges was available at press time.

By Rance Burger, Christian County Headliner The six members of the Ozark Board of Aldermen will wait until Aug. 17 to decide if face coverings will be required in public places. Mask mandate debate concluded after more than four hours of discussion at the Ozark Community Center on Aug. 10, which marked the first time that Ozark’s elected officials met in person since March. The board had been meeting via Zoom teleconferencing for four than four months in effort to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19, but convened to allow 34 people to speak at a public hearing. Of those 34, there were 23 who spoke against a masking mandate. Ozark resident Michael Autry said that COVID-19 is not dangerous enough to warrant what he perceives to be government overreach. “It’s like .02, .03 percent mortality rate,” Autry said. “The numbers aren’t there. People aren’t piled up like cord wood.” Ward 1 Alderman Nathan Posten, sponsor of a bill that would make face masks a requirement in many public settings in Ozark, opted against asking for a final vote on the bill on Aug. 10. Instead, he will deliberate for a week ahead of what he called “one of the hardest votes I’ve ever had to do.” “The duty of an alderman is to SEE CITY OF OZARK, PAGE 5

Continued from Page 1 Nobles worked for another local entity for the next ten years, until the desire to see his own business grow and expand took over and he stepped out completely on his own. Nobles now owns nine different Branson-based companies

offering a wide variety of services. One of Nobles’ businesses is the Timeshare Legal Service, designed to help people get out of a timeshare. “We don’t buy, sell or rent timeshares. We simply help them get out of a fraudulent agreement that they got into under a deceptive sales pitch,” Nobles ex-

LOCAL plained. “That’s the way we started with our company. Then we moved over to Extreme Customs and Mechanics, on Highway 248. My partner there is Marc Large. We can do everything from lifting and lowering a vehicle to straight mechanics, if you need something as simple as an oil change.”

Nobles also owns and operates RKBJJ gym, with business partner Rick Koenig. Koenig teaches the art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, a martial art focusing on grappling and ground fighting, while Nobles teaches Standing Kickboxing, a modern martial art and combat sport. Located on Pat Nash Drive, the RKBJJ gym offers classes to students of all ages, adults and children alike. Another of Nobles’ businesses is Strength Sertified, a specialized clothing line with a double-S logo, originally designed for veterans, children who suffer from illness or disease, and others who might need a visual reminder of their own strength. Nobles explained, “It’s almost like the Superman logo. We’ll go to the hospitals, present the kids with a plaque that says Strength Sertified. It’s a way of saying ‘You’ve got this, you’re strong.’ All of our attire includes sayings like ‘Stay Strong’ or ‘Be Free’. We do take a portion of our sales from the clothing and donate it to various charities.” SEE ENTREPRENEUR, PAGE 9

Senior Center presents live Friday music performances Special to Branson Globe The Branson Community and Senior Center has begun presenting live musical performances scheduled every other week on Fridays at 2 PM. “The Mellow Ds” will be performing Classic Country, Golden-Oldies Rock, Gospel and original music to be streamed live on Facebook via the world-wide web. The premier performance took place on July 24, and the response exceeded expectations. The next show took place on August 7 and

has already surpassed the number of views of the first show! “The Mellow Ds” originated in Nebraska over 20 years ago as a duet, consisting of Larry and Karen Doran, members of America’s OldTime Country Music Hall of Fame. Their harmony has been described as “seamless”, and Larry fronts and plays rhythm guitar for the group. Since moving to Branson, they’ve been joined by Mike McAdoo, a highly respected and sought-after lead guitarist and vocalist. Mike

owns Green Mountain Recording Studio here in Branson, and performs regularly at the Pickin’ Porch inside the Branson Craft Mall. He also performs for the cowboy church at God and Country theater on Sunday mornings. Ray Marlar, a classically trained concert pianist who has performed with the Toronto Symphony and the Boston Pops, retired from the US Air Force after a career performing with the Air Force Symphony, orchestra, band, jazz band, country

band, and rock band! Ray performs as the group’s bass guitar player. Both of these men have traveled extensively and have performed for our troops in other countries around the world. “We are determined to do everything we can to support Branson’s live music traditions, and to create awareness of the wonderful services provided by Branson’s Community and Senior Center at 201 Compton Drive in Branson. We play songs that aren’t heard much on the radio

anymore, but which will generate memories that can take folks to another place and time, if only for a few moments. Our shows are very relaxed and informal, with a lot of humor thrown in because I absolutely love to make folks smile or laugh out loud. In these trying times, we all could use more of that” says Larry Doran. The Branson Community Center is open to the general public, so anyone who enjoys live music is inSEE SENIOR CENTER, PAGE 5

the community, and it’s going to be hard to get my head in a spot where I would not be willing to support masks. It’s going to be hard to look at the people that have begged us to do it and tell them, ‘No. I understand you’re a doctor, but I don’t want to listen to you,’” Posten said. Ozark resident Connie Dodge took issue with how a mask requirement would be enforced. She felt the language in the proposal left it up to businesses to enforce the law, and potentially call police to report violations. “Is that the community you want to live in, where we’re tattling on people because they won’t wear a mask? Dodge asked. “It’s my choice to wear a mask, not yours.” People stood outside the meeting room at The OC with signs pressed to the windows facing the board of aldermen, signs with messages such as “Freedom to choose,” and “Let us breathe, COVID-19 has a 99-percent recovery rate.” Mayor Rick Gardner called for order multiple times as people in the crowd talked over aldermen speaking. People in the audience questioned rules of order. One man, Steve Wright, became angry enough to remove his mask, throw it into the air and exit the meeting. Each public speaker had three minutes to address the board. Luke and Heather Davis, owners of the Vineyard Market, thanked the aldermen for having the conversation, but asked for masks in public to be a choice. They don’t want to enforce a masking rule in their restaurant and wine bar. “I have a real hard time sitting here having a logical conversation with you that you have jurisdiction over my face. You don’t,” Heather Davis said. Eleven people spoke in favor of a mask requirement, which includes a clause that would allow someone found guilty of violating the law to be fined up to $100.

Toward the end of the debate session, Ward 1 Alderman R.J. Flores discussed masking as one of three key COVID-19 spread prevention measures along with hand washing and social distancing. “No one can really answer how well any of those are going to work, definitively, not even our health professionals, and I do think that we’re very divided on that,” Flores said. “One thing we need to consider as a community is what divides us as a community and what’s the best way for us to move forward without further division. For me, that’s one thing I have a hard time with, when I look at my neighbors and tell them, ‘I don’t know how much this is going to help.’” Prior to the 34 speakers from the general public, the Ozark Board of Aldermen heard a presentation from Dr. Robin Trotman, medical director of infection prevention at CoxHealth. Trotman gave an overview of the health care systems in southwest Missouri, and what the caseload of the COVID-19 pandemic means to those hospital systems at the current rates of spread. “This isn’t rhetoric, this isn’t political jargon, this isn’t the flu. I’ve worked here for 15 years. I’ve worked for every flu season including 2009, and this is different,” Trotman said. Trotman said “with 100-percent certainty,” that if the number of cases continued to rise in southwest Missouri, that hospital staffing, supplies of the drug remdesivir and other therapeutics used to treat COVID-19 and personal protective equipment supplies would be depleted. “This is projected resource depletion, meaning zero. We will run out of remdesivir, which is about the only antiviral medicine we have that seems to improve people’s outcomes when they’re on the ventilator. We’re not going to have enough,” Trotman said. “There is some hope in these treatments, so some of the combinations of the treatments that we use,

Train Up a Child: Start children back to school on the right foot

By Pat Lamb Getting off to a bad start in anything is not a good thing, but it is especially important that children get a good start at the beginning of each school year. The start of the year sets the pattern of behavior for the remainder of the school year and possibility for years to come. Having a set pattern removes uncertainty and much confusion as children practice firm rules in the home. As those rules become habits, parents are more at ease and there is less worry on the part of both the parents and the children. Before school starts in the fall, parents need to sit down with children and pray with them that

couraged to do the best they can do with the abilities God has given them. II Timothy 2:15 is a good verse to use to impress children to do their best in school. If a child can understand that it is God who is to be pleased more than self, teachers, or parents, studying becomes more important. This gives purpose and the proper attitude toward learning. The prayer instills a sense of seriousness about the importance of behavior and effort. Children need routine. They need the understanding that their behavior is acceptable, and they need to know that their parents are concerned with their well-being. A good routine for children each school night might include the following: • Homework is done at a certain time and place; then, it is laid out in a special spot so the child will not have to hunt for it the next morning. • Anything that is to be taken to school with the homework is placed along with the homework in a designated spot to prevent the scurrying around that often occurs in many homes as children frantically try to get ready to go to school. • Clothes to be worn the next day are laid out and ready to be put on. • Any chores in the home that

the child is to do the next day are explained so that the child is not surprised with added activities that may interrupt his/her plans. • The alarm clock is set. When these things are taken care of, one of the parent’s checks in on the child at bedtime to be available to hear questions or comments from the child before hearing the prayers of the younger children. Older children may want to say prayers in private. When the listed items are done, the child can go to bed at ease knowing all is ready for the next day. That child knows that the right thing has been done and will have a sense of accomplishment. Both the children and the parents will rest better knowing that all is organized. When children wake up in the morning and their clothes are ready for them, they don’t have the turmoil in their minds to start the day wondering what to wear. They don’t have to worry about their homework because they know where it is. After a good breakfast, one or both parents can give each child a big hug and kiss before he/ she walks out the door along with a word of advice such as, “Learn all you can learn!” or “No matter what happens today, I will still love you tonight!” With a final, “I love you!” the child is on the way to a good day at school.

MoDOT is hiring service-oriented individuals to join maintenance team Special to Branson Globe JEFFERSON CITY--The Missouri Department of Transportation is currently hiring individuals who are interested in a career to keep Missouri moving during the winter season and beyond. Right now, there are several fulltime maintenance and emergency maintenance equipment operator positions open across the state. Hourly salaries range from $14.10 to $16.90 per hour, depending on level of experience and area of operation. “If you’re looking for a job with excellent benefits where you can make a difference in the lives of your fellow Missourians, we’re looking for you,” said Natalie Roark, MoDOT’s maintenance director. “These positions are critical to Missouri travelers once the snow starts to fall and throughout the year to maintain our highway system.”

Full-time maintenance employees receive full training and a long list of other benefits including retirement, paid leave, medical, vision and dental insurance; and a culturally diverse workplace that is dedicated to safety and personal development. Applicants need to be at least 18 years old and successfully complete a criminal background check (a misdemeanor or felony conviction is not an automatic bar to employment). Maintenance employment with MoDOT can continue into the spring and beyond. Opportunities for year-round employment include mowing, striping and other maintenance functions to keep Missouri roads safe for all who travel on them. “There’s no better time to apply than right now,” Roark said.

Strength Sertified clothing is available online or at the RKBJJ gym. Nobles has another company with ties to the gym -- Empire X Security and Bail Bonds, which provides security for any type of business or event. The company employs some of the RKBJJ members, including former police officers and those who previously served in the military, as security guards when needed. Nobles also owns The Fireplace, Pool, Spa and Solar. It’s a company that is seeing an increase in business right now, ironically due to COVID-19. “I bought the Fireplace business last October,” said Nobles. “It was just The Fireplace Company, but we’ve expanded it. The pool side of the business is doing great. Since everyone is turning to doing outdoor living, that’s really huge for us right now. Another big company is The Solar System, which is our sales and marketing side of the solar business. We work with many of the developers in town, and it’s really doing good.” One of Noble’s latest ventures is TommyHawks, where he partners with Rick and Kristal Porter. Located on Branson’s 76 Country Boulevard, TommyHawks is a fun new sports bar and axe-throwing attraction for both tourists and locals. “We just opened,” said Nobles of the new venue. “We are across the street from Andy’s Frozen Custard. We serve beer and wine, and it’s a great place for people to relax and have fun.” In the parking lot of TommyHawks is another new business, a shaved ice truck known as SnoBirds, which is enjoying a great summer business. Soon to be added is another food truck, known as ChickenHawks. Nobles explained the concept behind ChickenHawks, slated to

open this week. “We serve everything on a stick. We have nine items on our menu. Chicken and potatoes served on a stick, and street corn on a stick.” Tim Nobles shared some of the benefits, as well as the drawbacks, of being his own boss “You have a lot of headaches owning your own business versus when you work for somebody. Working for another company, you have that pay every single week, and you know what you’re getting,” said Nobles. “ When you work for yourself, you can make yourself more money the more you work. That’s what I strived to do when I started opening more companies. When something comes along, like Covid, you take a hit. The bills continue to come in, but we just kind of stayed with the grind and we got everything re-opened. It’s slowly but surely picking up.” Another benefit to owning a number of businesses, according to Nobles, is the privilege of employing many people. “Most of my employees have been with me for a long time,” Nobles stated of his business. “I don’t have a high turn-over rate, and it seems that when I do lose someone, it’s because they’re starting their own business, and I’m happy for them. I love to employ people and watch them grow and succeed.” One such employee is Lisa Stephenson, who was recently promoted to a position as Nobles’ Personal Assistant, a role she accepted when Nobles’ former assistant became the General Manager of the Fireplace company. Serving as the assistant to the owner of many companies might be daunting for some, but not for Stephenson. “I really enjoy working for someone who is so enthusiastic about what they are doing,”.said Stephenson, adding, “He’s also an excellent family man, and he raised his family here.” Nobles, a graduate of Reeds Spring High School, and wife Re-

LOCAL becca reside in the Branson area. Nobles is the father of six children. Nobles explained the driving force behind his success in business. “You have to do something that you’re passionate about. I’ve always tried to do that, as well as find a business that fills

Aug 12 - 13, 2020 • 9

a need in the community. Also, I have always wanted to be able to support my kids, and show them the value of hard work, and the value of a dollar.” At least one of Nobles’ children may be following in her father’s footsteps.

“My 14 year old daughter, Madison, works at the snow cone stand.” said Nobles, proudly. “She is learning the value of money, as well as learning how a business works. So, I’m getting her started early!”

Survey reveals shifts in health behaviors during pandemic

A recent survey indicates that about 21 percent of those interviewed have improved their eating habits since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. (Special to Branson Globe)

By Mary Schuermann Kuhlman Courtesy of Public News Service JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. - An annual survey is uncovering the pandemic’s impact on health behaviors and attitudes. According to the 2020 UnitedHealthcare Wellness Checkup Survey, about two-thirds of people said walking is their preferred exercise activity, and it’s the most popular among Baby Boomers and Generation X. On the topic of nutrition, Rebecca Madsen - chief consumer officer with UnitedHealthcare - said the survey found some people’s eating habits have shifted. “Thirty percent of respondents said their diet is worse now than before COVID and 21% said that it’s improved,” said Madsen. “So, I think with more people being home and the propensity to want to snack - or frankly, to take better care of your health these results are all over the map.” As researchers race to develop a COVID-19 vaccine, about one-inthree respondents said they are now more likely to get an annual flu shot this fall. Madsen said when it comes to workplace norms, there also are differing opinions - with half of the respon-

dents saying they’ll be comfortable returning to work when the time comes. “Thirty-four percent of people said that they would stop shaking hands at work, no matter what the circumstance, to reduce the risk of viral transmission,” said Madsen. “Some said that they would use an alternative type of physical greeting.” The survey was done to provide insights for wellness programs offered by employers, which Madsen said reduce absenteeism and healthcare costs as they foster “whole-person health.” She noted more than 77% of respondents who have access to a wellness programs at work say it’s had a positive impact on their health. “About half of people said the programs motivated them to pay attention to their health,” said Madsen. “So, we’ve seen some really positive trends. And as people work either remotely or they return to the office, the employer is a great option for finding different types of programs to maintain your health.” She added that more than twothirds of companies have said they plan to expand their wellness programs in the next few years.

Navy commissions littoral combat ship USS St. Louis Courtesy of the US Department of Defense The U.S. Navy commissioned Independence-variant littoral

combat ship USS St. Louis (LCS 19), on August 8. Due to public health safety concerns and restrictions of large public gatherings

related to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the Navy commissioned St. Louis at a private event.

“Nearly 200 years after the first ship to bear the name was launched, today we commission the seventh USS St. Louis,” said Secretary of the Navy Kenneth J. Braithwaite. “Much like that sloop of war did in 1828, LCS-19 and her crew will protect the U.S. and our interests near and abroad. Whether conducting counter-narcotic operations in the Caribbean or working to enhance interoperability with

partners and allies at sea, USS St. Louis will provide maneuverability, stability and lethality in today’s era of Great Power Competition.” Rear Adm. Brad Cooper II, commander, Naval Surface Force Atlantic, welcomed the ship that brings capabilities to counter diesel submarine, mines and fast surface craft threats to the world’s premier surface force.

“St. Louis brings speed and agility to the fleet,” said Cooper. “Congratulations to St. Louis’ captain and crew for all of your hard work to reach this milestone. You join a proud Surface Force that controls the seas and provides the nation with naval combat power when and where needed.” Barbara Broadhurst Taylor, the ship’s sponsor, offered congratulations to everyone who played a role in delivering USS St. Louis to service. “To witness the skill and commitment of the officers and crew of USS ST LOUIS as they brought our magnificent ship to life has been one of the greatest honors of my life. All of us in the great city of St. Louis are proud to be part of our ship’s historic legacy and extend our appreciation and lasting friendship to the crew and their families,” Taylor said. “Your patriotism and dedication to preserving peace and freedom inspires us. May God bless our ship and all who sail her.” Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Energy, Installations, and Environment Charles Williams

expressed gratitude to the ships sponsor for their commitment to the Navy. “I want to express the Navy’s deep appreciation to the Taylor family,” he said. “Much of what they do is anonymous but believe me when I say they are the preeminent philanthropic family of the St. Louis community and a donor to Navy causes.” St. Louis’ commanding officer, Cmdr. Kevin Hagan, reported the ship ready. “I’m incredibly proud of the work the crew of St. Louis put in to get this ship ready to sail. I am absolutely honored to lead this crew through all of the trials required of a brand new ship in the fleet,” said Hagan. “Their perseverance and dedication will set the foundation for our crew and for all future crews that will call USS St. Louis their home.” St. Louis is the 22nd LCS to be delivered to the Navy, and the 10th of the Freedom-variant to join the fleet and is the seventh ship to bear the name. The first St. Louis, a sloop of war, was launched in 1828. It spent the majority of its service patrolling the coasts of the Americas to secure interests and trade. In addition, it served as the flagship for the West Indies Squadron working to suppress piracy in the Caribbe-

The littoral combat ship is a fast, agile and networked surface combatant, and the primary mission for the LCS includes countering diesel submarine threats, littoral mine threats and surface threats to assure maritime access for joint forces. The underlying strength of the LCS lies in its innovative design approach,

applying modularity for operational flexibility. Fundamental to this approach is the capability to rapidly install interchangeable mission packages (MPs) onto the sea-frame to fulfill a specific mission and then be uninstalled, maintained and upgraded at the Mission Package Support Facility (MPSF) for future use aboard any LCS sea-frame.

Some coffee with your coffee? Dunkin’ launching cereal line CANTON, Mass. (AP) — As if 2020 wasn’t weird enough, Dunkin’ is getting into the cereal game. The Massachusetts-based coffee

and donuts empire is releasing two new breakfast cereals based on two of its most popular coffee drinks: Caramel Macchiato and Mocha

Latte. The team-up with Post Consumer Brands, the makers of Honey Bunches of Oats, Shredded Wheat,

Raisin Bran and other familiar cereals, is expected to hit grocery shelves later this month. The companies say Dunkin’ coffee concentrate is added to the cereal, which consists of little crunchy spheres mixed with flavored marshmallow bits. A serving has about as much caffeine as a tenth of an 8-ounce cup of coffee. Reaction on social media has ranged from enthusiastic anticipation to horrified yet intrigued. Skeptics -- and there are many -see another sign of the apocalypse while others see redemption for an otherwise dreadful year. “I love to pretend like I’m not a die hard New Englander but if I don’t get to try the Dunkin’ donut cereal, I will absolutely lose my mind,” said one Twitter user. Still others see a marketing opportunity missed.

A 10-year-old girl who recently taste-tested the cereals for The Boston Globe suggested: “They should make a doughnut flavored cereal.” To be sure, the doughnut chain did try just that. It launched a cereal line based on their popular glazed and chocolate donuts in the 1980s that didn’t exactly take off. But the company’s interest in trying to break into the market again is understandable: nearly 65% of American adults drink coffee every day and nearly 90% of U.S. households consume cereal, according to Dunkin’. The cereal effort comes as Dunkin’s brick-and-mortar shops, like others nationwide, have taken a hit during the coronavirus pandemic. The company recently announced plans to close roughly 800 U.S. stores this year, or about 8% of its U.S. locations, as a result.

Reds’ youngest fan? Sonogram among ‘spectators’ at games

CINCINNATI, Ohio (AP) — This surprise baby reveal was a home run. When Aaron Nemo was asked to help his brother and sister-inlaw announce they were expecting their first child, he wanted to hit it out of the park. So he decided to cut out their sonogram picture and submit baby Nemo to be a fan cutout at the Cincinnati Reds’ spectator-less Great American Ballpark, WXIX-TV reports. “I wish I could say my heart was in an amazing place from the beginning, and I was just there to do something very sweet, but I kind of wanted to do something weird,” Aaron Nemo, who lives in Brooklyn, New York, told the station. Adam Nemo, who lives in Florida with his wife, says he didn’t expect his brother to announce the pregnancy in the seats of a ballpark. But his father is a Reds fan, and he was wearing a Reds T-shirt when his wife got an ultrasound. “When we thought about an-

nouncing, I was like, ’Let’s give it to Aaron, let’s let him come up with something,’” his wife, Kayleigh, said. Both brothers say watching games has now turned into “finding Nemo” as they scan the stands for the cutout. “Every time there’s a foul ball down the right-field or left-field line, I pause it and am like, ’Is that, is that the baby?” Aaron said. “We do the same,” Adam agreed. “We haven’t seen it yet on TV — you start looking closer during the games, but have not seen it yet. Don’t know where it is yet.” Reds officials say family members should be able to see the baby’s cutout on the third baseline. Reds officials earlier announced that fans could purchase cutouts for $75 to be placed in the ballpark during the 2020 regular season. WXIX-TV reports that there are now a total of 3,200 cutouts ordered and nearly 2,000 installed.

Apt Bible passage at Catholic Mass coincides with earthquake CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — The Scripture quite literally came to life for several Catholic churches in North Carolina as a rare earthquake rattled portions

of the state over the weekend. According to a news release from the Diocese of Charlotte, Father Richard Sutter of St. Gabriel’s Catholic Church said the

lector in the Sunday service had just reached the 19th chapter of 1 Kings, a Bible passage referring to the prophet Elijah, which said, “After the wind there was

an earthquake — but the LORD was not in the earthquake.” It was then that parishioners felt the 5.1 magnitude earthquake centered near Sparta, the most powerful to hit the state in more than 100 years. Monitors said the 5.1-magnitude temblor struck at 8:07 a.m., following a much smaller quake several hours earlier. There were no reports of serious injuries, but some minor structural damage was reported in Sparta, as well as cracks in roads. Images on social media also showed items knocked off of grocery store shelves. The Charlotte Observer reported that while he didn’t feel it himself, Sutter said parishioners came up to him as soon as the service ended. He said the moment can be a lesson for the times. “When there’s fear from an earthquake, when there’s fear from a storm, when there’s fear from a pandemic and uncertainty ... you have to let the Lord

speak to us the truth,” he said. “Let’s keep our eyes on Jesus Christ and not the waves (or even earthquakes) we cannot control,” he said. Father Cory Catron, pastor of the Catholic mission in Sparta, said his church suffered no apparent damage from the quake. “Made for good homily material, though,” the news release said. In his homily, Catron joked about being worried the next thing would be fire. He called the events a reminder of God’s presence, adding “we must not be distracted by the noise and problems of the world around us, but listen for His voice in the stillness.” As the 11:15 a.m. Mass in Sparta was ending and Catron offered a final blessing, there was a 1.8 magnitude aftershock. He said, “The ceiling creaked for like three seconds, and everybody kind of looked up and immediately we knew what it was.”

Israeli jeweler makes $1.5m gold coronavirus mask MOTZA, Israel (AP) — An Israeli jewelry company is working on what it says will be the world’s most expensive coronavirus mask, a gold, diamond-encrusted face covering with a price tag of $1.5 million. The 18-karat white gold mask will be decorated with 3,600 white and black diamonds and fitted with top-rated N99 filters at the request of the buyer, said designer Isaac Levy. Levy, owner of the Yvel company, said the buyer had two other demands: that it be completed by the end of the year, and that it would be the priciest in the world. That last condition, he said, “was the easiest to fulfill.” He declined to identify the buyer, but said he was a Chinese businessman living in the United States. The glitzed-up face mask may lend some pizzazz to the protective gear now mandatory in public spaces in many countries. But at 270 grams (over half a pound)

— nearly 100 times that of a typical surgical mask — it is not likely to be a practical accessory to wear. In an interview at his factory near Jerusalem, Levy showed off several pieces of the mask, covered in diamonds. One gold plate had a hole for the filter. “Money maybe doesn’t buy everything, but if it can buy a very expensive COVID-19 mask and the guy wants to wear it and walk around and get the attention, he should be happy with that,” Levy said. Such an ostentatious mask might also rub some the wrong way at a time when millions of people around the world are out of work or suffering economically. Levy said that while he would not wear it himself, he was thankful for the opportunity. “I am happy that this mask gave us enough work for our employees to be able to provide their jobs in very challenging times like these times right now,” he said.

Parts and a model of a mask is displayed in the Israeli jewelry company Yvel in Motza near Jerusalem, Sunday, Aug. 9, 2020.
