“Flubber,” a putty-like toy selling in Independence stores, is reportedly causing a rash among children. C.C. Jones, manager of the Woolworth store, says they have received no complaints and the material is selling well. Dr. Guy Carter, who has served as superintendent of the Independence School District the past year, has been awarded a new three-year contract. Dr. Carter was elected following the resignation of Dr. L.O. Plucker, who is now superintendent of Kansas City schools. Buddy Childers, who retired to a farm on Lee’s Summit Road in 1950 after operating a prescription business with his brother, Petey, in the First National Bank Building, is back in the same business. The new Drive-In Prescription Shop is at Winner Road and Harvard. A U.S. flag which once flew over the Capitol in Washington, D.C., will have a prominent part in the dedication of the new aluminum flagpole at the northeast corner of the courthouse here. Rep. William J. Randall is presenting the flag to the county for the dedication. Miss Maria Castillo realized her dream to be a hair stylist when she received her diploma from Don Cohoon, manager of the Independence School of Hairdressing. Miss Castillo will be at the Hair Pin Beauty Salon, owned by Mrs. Dorothy Haas. Mrs. Haas and Mrs. Mary Armstrong have been Maria’s sponsor since she arrived in the States from Honduras Thanksgiving Day, 1961.
