Visitors offer prayers, flowers after Branson duck boat tragedy
Lake during a storm Thursday.
Holloman said Ride the Ducks is one of their favorite things to do when visiting Branson. They are staying in a nearby hotel and were standing on the balcony last night, looking at the tourist attraction, when they heard the news.
"Tears just started flowing," Holloman said. "I didn't know any of the victims. It's just tragic."
Holloman and Sanders said they have never felt scared on Ride the Ducks and recall being told by operators that they could put on a life jacket if they wanted.
"We never felt unsafe on the Ducks. It's always laughter. It's always fun," he said.

Mourners leave flowers for duck boat victims as officials probe for answers
BRANSON, Mo. - It began with a single flower placed on each car left overnight on the parking lot at Ride the Ducks Branson, the company that owned the amphibious tourist boat that took its final fateful ride on storm-tossed Table Rock Lake.
The high winds and 5-foot waves, seemingly emerging from a quiet summer evening, capsized the boat Thursday evening, killing 17 people, ranging in age from 1 to 70 and including nine relatives visiting from Indiana.
By late Friday night, the hoods of two remaining cars were overfilled with flowers, with space left only on the tops of the vehicles and on the ground around them for folks to add to the collection.
Surrounding a vehicle shared by two of the victims, hundreds gathered to pay their respects and mourn those lost Thursday night. Fourteen people survived.
The majority of the those paying their respects during the quiet vigil didn't know the victims, but said Branson, a popular tourist destination, is a family, and coming together is what the town is all about.
Leading the candlelit vigil was Zach Klein - a field technician for the Taney County Sewer District - who didn't personally know the people he came there to honor. But when he was given the opportunity to speak, he didn't turn it down.
He talked for five minutes to the crowd of people wiping away tears or holding their loved ones close.
"Right now, we're in a time to mourn," Klein said. "We don't know when we're going to go meet our heavenly father. Be there for the people who need you when they need you."
The end of his speech brought prayers and song: "Amazing Grace" and "God Bless America."

He just had this really big smile on his face [as he]walked away from the door,” shop owner Cristina Swanson said. “That’s why we’re still here.”Swanson’s late mother, Amparo Wong, founded the business in 1980 in Atascocita.

One of the keynote speakers for the Water Summer is astronaut Mary Ellen Weber, who will explain NASA’s interest in and techniques for discovering evidence of water on other planets.“We want them to be wowed, but we want them to leave the show thinking or learning something they might not have known before, and they can do some things in their own home, their own garden, to protect the drinking water,” said Lemheney.Visitors to the Philadelphia Flower Show this year will be able to make a pendant from a tiny living water garden containing a living moss ball, a form of green algae.

Miss Floribunda: When nice plants get a bad reputation
The most notorious was Dr. Henry George Lanson, who was hanged in 1882 when discovered to have used aconite to poison his wife’s rich brother in order to finance his morphine habit.Dr. Worterbuch informs me that the word “weed” refers to the old English “weod,”which originally meant only “grass.” In the 17th century it referred to tobacco, and perhaps from that practice on to marijuana. He doesn’t know exactly when the word took on the meaning of an unwelcome plant. Certainly neither the butterfly-attracting milkweed nor the beautiful magenta-flowered ironweed are considered weeds in the pejorative sense. Other languages, such as Spanish and French, refer to what we call weeds simply as “bad grass.” For more gardening lore, please come to the next meeting of the Hyattsville Horticultural Society on Saturday, Oct. 21 from 10 a.m. to noon at the home of Joe Buriel and Dave Roeder on 3909 Longfellow Street. There will be a plant exchange after the meeting.Share this:RelatedL... (Hyattsville Life & Times)
