Proposal: Let’s bring Broadway to Branson By K.D. Michaels, Staff Writer A new movement, spearheaded by Branson’s Melissa Taillon, is taking the Ozarks by storm. What began as a simple Facebook page with Taiillon asking if others had an interest in Broadway musicals has become a
push to bring Broadway productions to the music Mecca of Branson. Taillon has been a life-long fan of Broadway. Born into a musical family Taillon says she grew up in the industry, visiting various shows with her father, who was a lighting director and assisted with many Branson produc-
tions. Taillon studied theatrical lighting, where she enjoyed working on such college productions as Legally Blonde. Melissa saw her first Broadway show, Wicked, in 2016. Taillon noted that many people are SEE BROADWAY, PAGE 8
Special to Branson Globe BRANSON, Mo – The Branson Board of Aldermen voted unanimously during a special meeting on August 11, 2020, to approve, Julia King, to fill the open Ward 3 Alderman position. Julia King is currently a Project Manager for Healthcare Performance Group. She was appointed using the process in accordance with a state statute in which the Mayor selects one name out of the list of applicants. That person is then voted by the Board of Aldermen, with the Mayor not voting. King fills the Alderman position left by Kevin McConnell. McConnell resigned from the Board of Aldermen August 7, after he moved out of his ward and, according to City code, was no longer able to serve on the board. King will be sworn in at the August 25 regular Board of Aldermen meeting.

pandemic, more and more community-based blood drives are being scheduled,” Pilgrim said. Tuesday’s blood drive saw “100 donors register, with 87 successful donations. Pilgrim said “it was a good drive.” In the light of many cancellations of blood drives throughout the state
in the past few months, a spike in COVID-19 cases has led to an emergency plasma shortage. CBCO and the Red Cross particularly want plasma donations from those who have fully recovered and received a COVID-19 diagnosis. “An important connection between blood and COVID is convalescent plasma (CCP).” Pilgrim said. “People that have had COVID and

LOCAL recovered are now being strongly urged to donate their plasma. The antibodies contained in that plasma have been used successfully to treat the most severe COVID cases when transfused.” The Red Cross said each donation from survivors that have fully recovered from COVID-19 have a “unique ability to help up to three patients recover from the virus.” “Blood usage is in most respects not affected by the pandemic,” Pilgrim said. “It is rare for transfusions to be needed in the case of COVID itself, although I imagine there are exceptions.” Blood, plasma and platelet donations from healthy people are also needed. Darrin Denzer of Branson donates blood whenever he gets a chance. “Of course a donor can only give blood once every 60 days,” he said. “The CBCO gives pins to donors whenever they reach a milestone of a gallon. I have donated somewhere around 5 gallons.” Denver doesn’t get nervous at all,” when he donates, since he knows “exactly what to expect whenever I attend a blood drive.” He would like
to think if he were the person who needed blood to save his life, “there would be a few people compassionate enough to help me.” “I really would encourage anyone to attend a blood drive and try to give blood,” he said. “It really is a positive experience. And when you consider what it might mean to someone or someone’s family of a life you might save, any small discomfort really is nothing compared to saving a life.” Therese Hamlet has been donating blood “on and off” for 25 years. “The CBCO is always very organized and professional,” she said. “I am not sure how many units I have donated. It is probably in the gallons by now. I donate blood because I have always understood the importance of it and it is a bonus that needles don’t bother me. My sisters hates needles so I told her I would try and donate enough for the both of us.” Denver said the CBCO is “very good” about giving Gatorade and snacks to donors. According to the the Red Cross and other organizations that host blood drives, donors are encouraged to eat a healthy meal before donating, and receive snacks after since
some people may feel a little faint afterwards because of loss of volume and the loss of some glucose. “I was very impressed with this blood drive,” Denver said. “It had a very large turn out and ran very smoothly. I was happy to be a part of it.” All donors received a free T-shirt, a coupon for a small shaved ice from SnoBirds Shaved Ice and a coupon for a free sandwich from Chick-fil-A Branson. There were prize drawings for a $250 gift card from Branson Bank and a $100 gift card from Farmers Insurance - Andrew Bryant. “Your donation helps friends, neighbors and loved ones in need,” Pilgrim said. “Thank you, Branson.” Hamlet added that not only is donating is easy. “You never know how important blood is until you have enough,” she said. “Plus, when you donate you lose a pound almost like instant weight loss.” Since there are no scheduled drives in Branson or Taney County in the next month, donors may go to the CBCO Springfield Donor Center at 220 W. Plainview Road or call 417-227-5376.

Hollister boutique offers more than just clothing By K.D. Michaels Staff Writer A new boutique has recently opened in Hollister, however, it’s not your average clothing store. “Everything in here is free”, said Linda Anthony, who, along with her daughter, Tonya, helps operate Answers to Prayers Boutique and Outreach. The well-appointed store provides clothing, food and hygiene items to those in need, free of charge. The non-profit outreach is sponsored by Billye Brim Ministries and Prayer Mountain of the Ozarks, and is designed to help the less fortunate in the Hollister and Branson communities. The boutique opened in January in a small shop along Hollister’s Turkey Creek, and moved it it’s current, larger home in June. Since opening, Answers to Prayers has aided approximately 150 to 200 people per month, according to Anthony. “When people come in, they sign in. We like for them to bring their children or other family members in, as well,” Anthony explained. “We offer them two clothing items a month. We also offer them food, and we provide resources. We research what is available for people who need help, and direct them to places like CAM. where they can get additional assistance.” Anthony added that working with this special group of clients has been a humbling experience. “When people come in, some don’t even have a can opener, or a plate. They are going day to day without enough food to eat. And, a lot of the people who come in looking for clothes are just trying to find something to wear so they can get a job. We do anything we can to help people,.” said Anthony. “My daughter and I don’t have lot, but doing this makes us

realize that we’re so much better off than many people.” In addition to the boutique, Answers to Prayers offers a church service, located just down from the store’s First Street location. Also sponsored by Prayer Mountain of the Ozarks, God’s Club meets each Sunday at 2pm, and provides nourishment for the spirit as well as the body, according to Anthony. “We invite people we’ve helped in the store with food or clothing. We try to feed them and then we feed them the Word,” Anthony noted. “Its a place for people who want to go to church, but maybe don’t feel like they belong.” “So many people just feel like no one cares about them,” added Tonya Anthony. “My mom and I want to really reach people. We don’t just give” them clothes and food, but we try to get to the heart, and meet all of their needs.” Answers to Prayers is located at 144 First Street in Hollister. The outreach is always willing to take donations of good, used clothing for both adults and children, as well as new toiletries and non-perishable food items.

By Gary Groman, a.k.a. the Ole Seagull The answer to that question, absent further action by the Branson Board of Aldermen (Board), is, “Yes.” “Hold on, Seagull, are you saying that if the Board takes no further action, that Branson’s mandatory face-covering requirement will fade into the sunrise?” “No, Branson Ordinance No. 2020-0072 says it does!” That’s the ordinance establishing Branson’s face-covering provisions. It went into effect at 12:01 AM on July 31, 2020. It expires automatically at 11:59 PM on September 8, 2020. Incidentally, that’s also the date of the Board’s first September meeting. “Come on, Seagull; you can’t be serious. All the debate, pro and con, before its initial passage and it can just fade into the sunrise without any further public discussion or debate as of 12:01 September 9, 2020?” “It makes not an ounce of difference whether or not the Ole Seagull is serious or not.” Section 3 of the ordinance states, “This ordinance shall be in full force and effect at 12:01 AM on July 31, 2020, after its passage by the Board of Aldermen and approval by the Mayor and remain in effect until 11:59 PM September 8, 2020, at
visions. In fact, the ordinance provides explicitly that absent any action by the Board before 11:59 PM on September 8, 2020, as of 12:01 September 9, 2020, Branson’s mandatory face covering requirements are automatically repealed. The only way that can change is if the Board takes some sort of action before 11:59 PM on September 8 to extend the mandatory face covering requirements. That could happen through either a Special Board meeting, as was done with the passage of Ordinance No. 2020-0072, or by having an item placed on the Agenda for the Board’s September 8 meeting.

which time the Sections above will be repealed in their entirety.” Those “Sections” amend Chapter 58 of the Branson Municipal Code to add the mandatory face-covering requirements. They are automatically “repealed in their entirety” as of 12:01 AM on September 9, absent further action by the Board before then. “But Seagull, surely there will be some public debate on whether or not Branson’s mandatory face coverings should continue in effect beyond 11:59 PM on September 8?” “Not necessarily!” There is no requirement that the Board take any action to extend the mandatory face covering pro-
Here’s the bottom line. If one is against Branson’s mandatory face covering provisions, they do everything possible to keep the Board from taking any further action before 11:59 on September 8. At 12:01 on September 9, they are no more and “fade into the sunrise.” If one favors Branson’s mandatory face covering provisions, they do everything possible to get the Board to take action extending Branson’s mandatory face covering provisions prior to 11:59 on September 8. If they don’t, as of 12:01 on September 9, they are no more and “fade into the sunrise.”

unable to travel to see a Broadway show. “There is such an accessibility issue when it comes to Broadway shows that makes it difficult for some people to see any of the tours,” said Taillon. “A lot of people just can’t afford to go. The whole issue of accessibility has always been on my mind. I just didn’t know how to address it.” Following the recent release of Hamilton on Disney Plus, Taillon noticed an increased interest in Broadway musicals, not just in adults, but also in children of all ages. “I saw on Facebook, people who normally don’t like Broadway, say ‘Oh, this is Broadway! This is incredible!’ I saw that this musical was really changing people. I thought about all of the open theaters in Branson, and decided to just garner some opinion and see if there was an actual demand for this.” Taillon created a Facebook group and added four friends. The group immediately started expanding, beyond Taillon’s expectations. She then began reaching out to city officials to get their input on bringing Broadway to Branson. One of the first people Melissa heard back from was Mayor Edd Akers, who applauded her enthusiasm and echoed her interest in bringing Broadway shows to our area. In the earliest days of the movement,
bransonglobe.com Melissa also received support from other key community leaders, including Marshall Howden of the Song of Hope movement, and members of the Branson Board of Alderman. Howden was incredibly supportive, according to Taillon, partially because of the common bond they shared over the late Mel Tillis. “Marshall is Mel Tillis’ grandson. My parents met while working for Mel Tillis,” Taillon explained. “My dad was working for Mel as a theatrical lighting designer, and my mom worked as an usher and in the concession stand.” Taillon also received assistance from a very important contact, Mary Ruth Barnett, formerly of Branson, who had moved to New York to work as a Broadway booking agent. “She had so much knowledge and insight, and she laid things out in plain words,” said Taillon, of Barnett’s assistance. “She pointed me in the direction we needed to go.” One direction that Barnett, as well as Howden, pointed Taillon, was to the former Mel Tillis Theater, now known as The Encore Theater. But, before Taillon had the opportunity to call the theatre, she was contacted by theatre representative Shellie Edwards. Edwards, a friend of Taillon’s, knew of her desire to bring Broadway shows to Branson, and had spoken to SEE BROADWAY, PAGE 9

Continued from page 8
the theater managers about the idea. Taillon and Barnett toured the theater, which they both deemed perfect for the proposed Broadway musicals. Taillon is currently awaiting a decision from the property owners regarding her idea, but in the meantime, the movement has plenty of work to do. “The next step is focusing on investors,” Taillon noted. “It can cost between $35,000 and $40,000 per night to host a Broadway show, not including any labor, or any rentas. And that is a non-equity show. An equity show can cost three times that amount. An example of a non-equity show would be Anastasia, Hair Spray, Rent, shows like that. That doesn’t mean they are any less good, they are just a little less expensive to host. For now we want to focus on popular shows with lower price points.” Taillon continued, “I’ve talked with Alderman Bill Skains. He is just a wealth of knowledge, so I am very lucky that he is willing to help find investors. We’re also building a committee and considering turning the movement into a 501C3 non-profit organization. The committee will meet twice a month and discuss where to move forward from here, because it can take some time for us to get investors. But there are things we can do in the meantime.” Some of Taillon’s ideas include hosting a Rocky Horror Picture Show Shadow Show, holding a Hamilton Night in the Park, and other community events. The committee and the movement will also provide support to the Branson Regional Arts Council, as well as area entertainers, and the music and show industry in Branson. Another focal point for Taillon is encouraging our locals to get out and enjoy the shows Branson currently has to offer. “Our shows, now more than ever, are in deep trouble,” said Taillon.”Our locals love our town, they love our shows in theory, but some never go out and support any. Most shows give great local rates, so if we could just get
more people to come out and see these shows, I think it would be an amazing show of community support..” Taillon said some in the entertainment community have voiced concern that the proposed Broadway shows could potentially put other shows out of business. Taillon, however, is certain that bringing Broadway shows to Branson won’t be a competition for other shows, but will instead create an economic gain for everyone. “We’re going to bring in two shows a year until we get our footing, and they will be here from three to seven days,” Taillon explained.. “One will be during the regular season, and the other in the off -season to boost tourism and hopefully give other theatres and businesses even more of a reason to stay open during that time. It may not happen the first or even the second season, but once people see a trend, we’re hoping they will decide to stay open, too.” Taillon continued, “Someone hears that, say, Anastasia is coming to town, so they buy a ticket. Then they need a hotel. And, they’re driving down the strip and they see Broadway’s Greatest Hits at the Kings Castle Theater. They’re here for Broadway, so they’ll buy a ticket. Then they notice Broadway to Buble, another Broadway show, so they buy a ticket for that, too. Of course, while they are here, they’ll also want to do other things, like gocarts or miniature golf.” Taillon gave a timeline for bringing the first Broadway show to Branson. “Optimistically, we’re looking at 2023 for the first production, but realistically no later than .2025.” Taillon added, “Everything is really coming together, so there is a chance that we could be bringing in a show at the end of 2021 or the beginning of 2022.” In the meantime, Taillon and her committee will continue gathering support and finances for the project, as well as working on new ways to support our entertainment community and introduce even more people to Broadway.

Missouri Dept. of Conservation JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – Missouri welcomes numerous flying visitors throughout the year, but the state recently made history after a seabird was spotted in the Ozarks. Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) staff have confirmed a Brown Booby has shown up along the Current River in Ripley County. The bird was first spotted by Debbie Prance-Orosz this past Saturday while she and her family were out enjoying the river. Not knowing what the bird was, she snapped a photo and posted it to her Facebook page. “We first got word of it after it was posted to Facebook this past weekend wondering what it was,” said MDC Forester and avid birder Steve Paes. “We didn’t know where it was, other than somewhere on the Current River. After asking around, I got a tip on its
location. On Monday, I set out on the river with Cindy Bridges with the Missouri Birding Society and we eventually found it perched on a dead tree.” Brown Boobies are large, long-winged seabirds that are often seen from southern Florida south on the Caribbean and Pacific coasts of Central America to northern South America. According to MDC State Ornithologist Sarah Kendrick, this is the first recorded sighting of a Brown Booby in Missouri. “It’s just an anomaly,” Kendrick said. “To spot this tropical seabird in the Ozarks is as awesome as it is bizarre!” Kendrick speculated that the recent storms in the Gulf Coast could have blown the bird off course or caused it to get lost, leading to its pitstop in Missouri.

Missouri receives maximum funding for shared work program Missouri Dept. of Labor and Industrial Relations Jefferson City, MO –– The U.S. Department of Labor (USDOL)
yesterday announced that the Missouri Department of Labor and Industrial Relations (DOLIR) is the recipient of two grants, totaling
over $1.8 million to improve and promote its short-time compensation (STC) program called the Missouri Shared Work Unemployment
Compensation program. Missouri is the first state to apply for and receive the maximum amount available under the grant program. In supporting Missouri’s Show Me Strong Recovery efforts, the Shared Work program can be particularly beneficial in returning employees to work during an uncertain time by giving employers the flexibility to scale up or scale down the workforce based on changing business needs. The program allows an employer to bring temporarily laid-off employees back to the job by dividing the available work among a group of employees. Shared Work employees receive a portion of their unemployment benefits while working reduced hours and retaining employer benefits. “Missouri’s Shared Work program benefits both large and small employers and their employees. It’s a win for employers, a win for workers, and a win for local Missouri economies. This grant will help both Missouri businesses and workers, particularly as we continue our recovery efforts,” Missouri Governor Mike Parson stated.
U.S. Secretary of Labor Eugene Scalia yesterday said, “The Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act provided funding for States to implement and expand their Short-Time Compensation programs and I am pleased Missouri is stepping forward to take advantage of these funds.” While roughly half of the states have an STC program, Missouri was one of the original states to have established its program more than 30 years ago. The CARES Act provides up to $100 million in grants for states to implement or improve an STC program and for the promotion to and enrollment of employers. The maximum amount available to each state is set in statute. Missouri proposes to use the grant funds to ensure businesses in the state are aware of the Shared Work program and its advantages, to enroll more businesses, and to continue to streamline the reporting processes for employers and workers. For more information on the Missouri Shared Work program, visit sharedwork.mo.gov.

And as for how long it’ll enjoy its Missouri vacation? That’s up in the air. “There’s no telling how long it’ll be here,” Paes commented. “It could be a few weeks, or it could be gone tomorrow! But for serious birders, it’s such a treat. They’re crossing a tropical bird off their list that they got to see in Missouri. It’s absolutely a kick.” To learn more about birdwatching, visit the MDC website at https://short.mdc.mo.gov/Zhp or join the Missouri Birding Society at https://mobirds.org/.

“It can be difficult for birds to escape severe weather, and some can be blown hundreds of miles off course, but this is extreme,” she explained. It’s unclear how the Brown Booby likes the Missouri landscape, but those who have seen it all agree on one thing: the seabird is “totally oblivious” to people. “The bird is just unfazed,” said Paes. “The few times I’ve seen it, it’s been perched on a dead tree and doesn’t seem to mind being close to people. It looks healthy and very active, too. It doesn’t seem to have trouble feeding and catching fish.”

Facebook beefs up anti-misinfo efforts ahead of US election OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Beginning Thursday, U.S. Facebook users who post about voting may start seeing an addendum to their messages -- labels directing readers to authoritative information about the upcoming presidential election. It’s the social network’s latest step to to combat election-related misinformation on its platform as the Nov. 3 election nears — one in which many voters may be submitting ballots by mail for the first time. Facebook began adding similar links to posts about in-person and mail-in balloting by federal politicians, including President Donald Trump, in July. These labels will link to a new voter information hub similar to one about COVID-19 that Facebook says has been seen by billions of
users around the world. The labels will read, “Visit the Voting Information Center for election resources and official updates.” Despite such efforts, Facebook continues to face widespread criticism around how it handles misinformation around elections and other matters. The company has generally refused to fact-check ads by politicians, for instance, and a two-year audit of its civil rights practices faulted the company for leaving U.S. elections “exposed to interference by the President and others who seek to use misinformation to sow confusion and suppress voting.” The effectiveness of such labels will depend on how well Facebook’s artificial intelligence system identifies the posts that really need
them, said Ethan Zuckerman, director of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Center for Civic Media. If every post containing the word “vote” or “voting” gets an informational link, he said, “people will start ignoring those links.” Facebook expects the voter hub to reach at least 160 million people in the U.S., said Emily Dalton Smith, who serves as head of social impact at the company. The primary focus is registering people to vote, she said, but the information people see will evolve throughout the election season. “This is a unique election and a unique election season,” she said. “Certainly we have never gone through an election during a global pandemic.”

Other tech companies, Twitter and Google, which owns YouTube, have undertaken similar efforts around the November election. Twitter said it is working on expanding its policies to address “new and unique challenges” related to this year’s elections, including misinformation around mail-in voting. Looking ahead to November, Facebook said it is “actively speaking with election officials about the potential of misinformation around election results as an emerging threat.”
The company did not give details on the potential threats, but said that a prolonged ballot process where results are not immediately clear “has the potential to be exploited in order to sow distrust in the election outcome.” “One way we plan to fight this is by using the Voting Information Center and the US Elections digest in Facebook News to make sure people have easy access to the latest, authoritative information and news on and after Election Night,” Naomi Gleit, vice president of product management and social impact, wrote in a blog post.

Rites of fall: Losing college football stings across America (AP) Michigan’s Big House will be sitting empty when the leaves start to change this fall. Southern Cal’s famed white horse, Traveler, won’t be galloping trium-
phantly after a Trojans touchdown. No one at Ole Miss knows for sure if partying fans will be belting out a well-lubricated “Hotty Toddy” in The Grove.
From Ann Arbor to Los Angeles to Oxford, that most American of pursuits — college football — has either given up hope of getting in a traditional season or is flinging
what amounts to a Hail Mary pass in a desperate attempt to hang on in the age of Covid-19. Even if some schools manage to take the field in the next month or so, it will be a different looking game. Chances are, Saturdays will never be quite the same again. “Our lives are changing forever right before our eyes,” Arizona offensive lineman Donovan Laie said. While every aspect of society has been jarred by a worldwide pandemic that has claimed more than 160,000 American lives, the potential loss of college football feels like another collective punch to the national psyche. For all the ills of big-time college athletics, it might the closest thing to a national religion. “Since the virus hit, we’ve all lost a sense of our normal lives,” said Charles Reagan Wilson, professor emeritus at the Center for the Study of Southern Culture at the University of Mississippi — better known to college football fans as Ole Miss. “College football could be the balm for our spirit because it’s such a part of our familiar autumn
life,” he added. “I think to not have it would up the ante on that sense of abnormality we’re all living through.” That reality has already arrived for fans in two of the country’s most prominent conferences. On Tuesday, the Big Ten and the Pac-12 both called off their attempts to play this fall, saying they might try to play in the spring if the virus subsides. The remaining Power Five conferences — the Southeastern, Atlantic Coast and Big 12 — are pressing on with their attempts to kick off the season next month, though all are quick to acknowledge that the virus could force the to cancel. Ohio State fan Jason Streeter finds it difficult to grasp the concept of a fall without football. “Devastation,” said Streeter, sounding as though a tornado had just swept through town. “It’s just a way of life in Columbus, honestly. It really is. You look forward to those fall Saturdays on the banks of the Olentangy.” He talked longingly of traditions that are unique to his school, such SEE FOOTBALL, PAGE 17

as the band’s famed script spelling of “Ohio” during its halftime shows in the center of a nearly 103,000seat stadium known as “The Horseshoe” — capped ff by a lone member high-stepping across the field to “Dot The I.” “It’s a part of life here, it really is,” Streeter said. Further down the college football food chain, smaller leagues have pulled the plug on their seasons as well. The sting is especially painful at historically Black colleges and universities such as North Carolina A&T, where one of the highlights of football season — really, the entire year — is a week-long homecoming celebration that draws tens of thousands to Greensboro. “It’s been an insular community for so long, by necessity,” said Earl Hilton, the athletic director at North Carolina A&T. “These are places of retreat, places of sanctuary, places of protection. There’s a feeling that we are in a safe place where we can celebrate and enjoy and appreciate each other in ways that are genuine and authentic.” Not this year. There’s no football, no homecoming, no chance to watch the school’s famed band perform one of its dazzling halftime shows. “The leaves change, it gets a little cooler, and it’s just what you do on a Saturday afternoon,” mused Hilton, sadness clear in his voice. “I’m at a loss for words to describe what it’s going to be like.” For a country already in the midst of a devastating economic downturn, the loss of college football will have a crushing impact on bars, restaurants and other businesses that rely on football fans. That is especially true of college towns like Oxford, Mississippi and Clemson, South Carolina and State College, Pennsylvania. “I was talking to a restaurant owner here in Oxford who said 50 percent of his yearly profit comes from college football season,” said
Wilson, the Ole Miss professor. “Even if people are able to come back next year, it won’t be the same. Some of the restaurants they loved won’t be here. Some of the clothing stores, some of the bars, they won’t be here.” Oxford has a a tax base of about 25,000 residents, and the population grows closer to 60,000 when classes are in session. But on a big football weekend, the town can be swamped by nearly 200,000 people. Those people spend money, lots of money. About a third of Oxford’s operating budget comes from sales taxes. “We count on those six to seven weekends a year,” Mayor Robyn Tannehill said. “There are businesses in this town that can weather a slow winter or spring because because they know football’s coming.” The SEC has already cut back on its normal 12-game schedule, hoping the league can complete that a 10-game slate of conference games. Even the games that are played will surely be in stadiums that are empty or let in only a fraction of their normal capacity. The universities will likely crack down on popular tailgating spots such as The Grove.
“The Grove, the weather, the tailgating, the feel of a big Saturday morning game day,” Tannehill said. “I can’t imagine Oxford without it.” Even in a larger city such as Columbus, the loss of a Buckeyes season is a huge blow to a sports bar such as the
Varsity Club, which opened in 1959 about two blocks from Ohio Stadium. On a football Saturday, the place is overrun with crowds that spill out the door before the game, during the game and long into the night. “Those are eight massive days a
year for us,” said R.J. Oberle, a manager at the Varsity Club. “We really thrive on those events.” If it wasn’t apparent before, it surely is now. Life is not returning to normal anytime soon. Not without college football.
Gates leading into Memorial Stadium are padlocked, in Lincoln, Neb., Wednesday, Aug. 12, 2020. The Big Ten won’t play football this fall because of concerns about COVID-19, becoming the first of college sports’ power conferences to yield to the pandemic. The move was announced Tuesday.
