Honorable New Bear Board Members
This article first appeared in issue 13, and was written by Ed Waggener.
Many are called, but few are chosen.
A choice few new members of the Blue Ribbon Bear Board have met the stringent requirements of membership.
Among the new chosen are the following:
Josh Murrell, Biloxi, MS. At large, fire stations all over the United States.
Macy Murrell, Columbia, KY, Toria Road sector.
Jane Aaron, Bear Board dietitian.
Peckerwood, Breeding. Peckerwood is the code name for a self-proclaimed bruintologist, who maintains that some of the "bears" are reported to protect "wildflower" plots. He maintains that "wildflower" is code for Adair County's reputed No. 1 agricultural crop.
Raymond Grant, U.S.A. at large. As the ace driver for Rogers Trucking, Grant spots bears in every mainland state. Grant also has a beef with bears. When he wrestled a bear, it got him down and sat on him. Recently, he compared notes with Steve York, who is the only Bear Board member to have vanquished two wrestling bears and have a third chicken out on him. The bearfighters believe the bear which sat on Grant was Ginger. "Ginger was bad about that," York says.
Russell Baker. A retired RTC trucker, was with Grant recently in North Carolina where they saw an Alaskan Grizzly on display.
D. Brockman Vaughn, Bear Board anitquarian.
Charles Barnes. Beartrapper.
Margaret Arnold. Petty's Fork sector.
Pastor Randy Parnell. Eagle's Nest bear spotter.
The Hon. Russell Walker. Being a true grandson of Edith Cundiff Walker and the late Pete Walker and the son of Hughes Walker and Dr. Anna Adams is sufficient grounds to make The Hon. Russell Walker Bear Board Member in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, which together with Fordyce Arkansas, and Stoll Field, is Bear Country, of a kind.
Bill Spicer. Bear Board armorer. Report verifier.
Dr. Jann Aaron. Sligo to Smithfield to Turner's Station sector.
Sarah A. Bromley. Most of the Nutmeg State. (Bears love spices).
Dr. Ben Arnold. Bear Board Egyptologist.
