Only Four More Qualify To Carry Coveted Blue Cards

This article first appeared in issue 16, and was written by Ed Waggener.

JIM BARBEE-Boulder, Colorado, and late of this place, is the first Blue Ribbon Bear Board member assigned to the entire Rocky Mountain and Coors sectors.

RUBY T. BARBEE-Columbia, is an at large member of the BBRB, with a special distinction: Mrs. Barbee is licensed by the board to scout Black, Adair, and Polar Bears.

JOSEPH WESLEY FLOWERS-commissioned a Blue Ribbon Bear Board member in special ceremonies conducted by Johnny Vaughn. His sector is the vast whole of Columbia Rural Route 3.

DENA BURTON-Inducted into the Blue Ribbon Bear Board personally by BRBB Dean Gary Coomer, and assigned to the Webb's Crossroads, Torch Ridge sectors of Russell County; the Dunnville sector of Casey, and the Millerfield and Putman County sectors in Adair.

A note: The BRBB now has a clandestine operative smack dab in the center of Washington, D.C. Americans should sleep a little bit sounder knowing this.

This item first appeared in Issue 16 of the print edition of Columbia! Magazine.
