Mourners leave flowers for duck boat victims as officials probe for answers
More: Here are the 17 victims of the Branson duck boat tragedy

She says the captain of the boat told passengers, "Don't worry about grabbing the life jackets – you won't need them." By the time it was clear that life jackets were needed, she says, "it was too late."
The extended Coleman family likely wouldn't have been on the ill-fated trip but for a ticket mix-up. Tracy Beck, of Kansas City, Missouri, said she recalled the family members waiting in line. After they stopped for a picture, a ticket taker realized they should have boarded at a different location and reassigned them, the Associated Press reports.
While a severe thunderstorm had hit around the time of the boat's capsizing, causing the 5-foot waves on Table Rock Lake, much of what specifically caused the boat to sink – while other vessels withstood the harsh conditions – is unclear. Teams found the boat sitting upright on its wheels in 80-feet of water.
A second duck boat on the lake in southwest Missouri, about 225 miles southwest of St. Louis, made it safely to shore.
The U.S. military in World War II originally used duck boats to transport troops and supplies, and they were later modified for use as sightseeing vehicles.
Officials at the National Transportation Safety Board, which is investigating the accident, said it could be a year or longer before all the answers are found.
NTSD board member Early Weener said investigators would release a preliminary report within a month that could provide some information about wha... May 24, 2018

Down To Earth: Spectacular Colors And Winter Flowers Make Witch Hazel A Garden Delight
Hamamelis vernalis is a native species that is quite hardy (zone 4) and can be found along streams from Missouri to Louisiana. Finally, the species Hamamelis virginiana, another native, can grow quite large—to 18 to 20 feet. It’s also found throughout much of the eastern US.Most of these plants grow to 5 to 6 feet in the average landscape, although they have the potential to get larger, depending on the cultivar chosen. Their broadly upright habit makes them ideal for use in most gardens and they work well even in a small space. They respond well to pruning and can be kept to 4 to 5 feet easily. They also add spectacular fall color, as do many plants in their family (Hamamelidaceae). Leaf colors in the fall can range from yellow to orange, gold and bright red. Fall color alone makes these plants worthy of use. They have spectacular foliage during the summer months as well, with rounded, slightly wavy leaf margins and a nice, clear green color.If you’re looking for a good resource for this genus, try Michael Dirr’s “Manual of Woody Landscape Plants.” He has a great chart listing all the relevant cultivars of each species. Arnold Arboretum in Boston has a wonderful collection and they should be in flower now, if you can make the trip.There are 33 cultivars listed in Michael Dirr’s manual. In searching through nursery catalogues, typically you’ll be hard-pressed to find more than two to three listed. However, during a quick online search of Broken Arrow Nursery in Hamden, Connecticut, I found they list 38 cultivars and many are quite spectacular. I may have to make a trip this spring!...Apr 6, 2018
