New Bear Board Members
This article first appeared in issue 12, and was written by Ed Waggener.
New Bear board members
Because of the stringent requirements to get on the Blue Ribbon Bear Board, only a limited number have made the cut thus far. It is our intention to keep the BRBB a "Lean, Mean, Sighting Machine." New members include:
Paul Turner, let on to the Bear Board because, he said, "I've always wanted to have a little authority."
Shorty Hamilton, friend of Gary Coomer's friend Mike Newton. Campbellsville and therefore eligible.
Mike Newton. Foreign agent, Campbellsville. Soccer arena site, LWC campus.
Sean Milligan: Has actually seen a bear in Adair County.
Linda Affolter, co-owner of Breeding Mall and preservationist.
Jeff Costello, who has seen a red fox in Dr. Webb's Russell Creek bottom.
Cordell Coomer. 700 block of Jamestown Street sector.
Starrett Johnson, Tupman's Pond sector; urban Columbia at large.
Minor England, Bear Dog advisor.
Bill Hlavin, Millersburg, Ohio, bear linguistarian.
Elaine Bennett, Bear Board chanteuse & and songwriter.
Michael Campbell, Bear Board Air Patrol Commander.
Hartsell Hodges, Bear Board lst Tenor.
Hubble* (Code Name for Tv Star). Secret agent has already proved invaluable with some advice. See next page.
Steve Smith, antique bear specialist.
Kenny Davis, Slidell, Louisana, once a famous resident of Adair County. His sector is: Beginning at the Jct. of Cumberland Pky and KY 55 and thence eastward to a certain building in Jamestown, KY, known as the Off-Track Betting Facility.
Allen Moore. Edgewood and Longview sectors. Creator of the Joe Bears.
Angie Hadley - Gradyville lookout.
Hunter Durham - Studied under famed varmintologist Dr. W.K. Neat; had many encounters of the first kind with Yellowstone National Park bears.
Bobby Mann & Ronnie Hopper. First National Bank, Russell Springs, KY. Sector: The Ono community, if there is one (See this issue's Bear Board Report). Very little is known about Bobby Mann and Ronald Hopper, except that they come conditionally recommended by Johnny Vaughn, who vouches that they are both good boys.
Lovie Glen Hughes. Has the Breckinridge Lane sector from Baptist East north to Chenoweth Square.
Russell Hughes. In charge of the Hughes' House to Sulphur Well sector.
Blacky Lynn Nixon (foreign agent)-the identical twin brother of Red Glynn Nixon. At Adair County High School, we could tell them apart when they played basketball for John Burr. Red liked to shoot from 45 feet, whereas Blacky favored lay-ups. Blacky will cover Hillsboro, Indiana; Saw Mill Road, where he has land; the Wabash River Valley sector as well as Rocky Hill Schoolhouse zone. A committee is at working to recruit Mr. Nixon back to his ancestral homeland.
Dr. George Webb. Has Rowetown & Rupp Arena sectors.
Yellowhammer. (Code name for Jimmy Dale Bledsoe). Glens Fork Creek sector. No black bear will give Yellowhammer, Steve York, or Raymond Grant any sass.
Carlos Mann. Totally fearless former Kentucky State Trooper, livestock trader, and Cumberland River historian. Sector includes area circumscribing the Doughboy on Monument Square.
Buck Campbell. Will patrol the Hooterville, Resurrection City, and Chestnut Corner sector, armed only with a bear knife.
Charles Marshall. At large Beard Board diplomat.
Shotgun Smith. Summer Shade, Lone Star Ridge, Subtle (Subtul, please) Mountain to Dividing Ridge Road sector. UK fans should know that Shotgun's business slogan, "If you are waiting on Shotgun, you are backing up," was coined by Metcalfe County Attorney John Paul Blevins. Mr. Smith is often seen passing through Columbia with a load of fine logs.
Charles Vance. Has Grant Line Road to Pekin sector. Southside Restaurant, Market Street, and the Sherman Minton Bridge.
Walter Grider. Retired Teamster. Active Shriner, Republican. Was in the restaurant where Jimmy Hoffa was last seen two hours before Hoffa vanished. Greater Ozark, Keen-Wilson Road to Clyde Hutchison farm sector.
Linda Waggener-Put on as a gratis member because she won't quit criticizing that there are too darn few women on the Bear Board.
A few more members may be reported next issue.
