Barbara Bueker Announces Retirement

Cites Age, Mental Difficulties

Phoenix (BP) - Barbara Bueker Stewart, the delightfully eccentric woman who graced JDA Avenue in the 60s and 70s, has announced her retirement after a successful career as an art teacher in Glendale. Ms. Stewart is best known as the mother of local phenomenon John Bueker, yet she carved out a solid niche for herself as an elementary art teacher at American School. Her principal, Mr. Tom Freehill, had these touching words for Barb's exceptional teaching career: "She's done a fine job for us, I just wish she'd do the damn art shows." Ms. S. points to her advancing chronological condition and job "burn-out" as her rationale in calling it quits. We at the Crusader salute this retiring beacon of public instruction.

Editor:

 

My inquiry is a simple one. How can you possibly justify the continued existence of your "newspaper?" How many people could possibly care anything at all about the goings-on on Joan De Arc Avenue? I suspect that not even the current residents of that decaying hovel care much for the inane and trivial matters that you raise, time and time again. Why don't you find a real life, grow up, and find a more meaningful target for your meager journalistic talents? I know you don't have the gonads to print this letter, so all I can say is give it up, ace.

Sports.......      by J.B.

 

    On this day in 1968, Carl Bueker turned on the TV and sat through a hockey game, two golf tournaments, a tennis match, a basketball game, a sports highlights show, and a Roller Derby playoff match. This feat of TV sports viewing remains a solid Joan De Arc record to this very day.
