HOLABIRD HAS VALENTINE'S DAY POWER FAILURE
the evening of February 14th was not too romantic for some folks in Holabird. Electricity was off and on between 6:30-8:00 that evening. Beth Aasby was having a difficult time preparing batter-dip fried shrimp for the evening meal. Harold Hinkle, however, was in is element. Previous military training and preparations for the Y2K mess three years ago reaped their reward. The series of power failures were reportedly ended when Brittany Hinkle wrote a letter to God. It may have been coincedence, but it worked anyway.
DOGPILE SEARCH TURNS UP HOLABIRD ADVOCATE
The Holabird Advocate's Circulation and Market Research Department has discovered that a query in the Dogpile.com search engine turned up the Holabird Advocate's web site. We have tried looking for the site on Yahoo! several times to no avail. On Dogpile we tryed using "jerry hinkle" (our courageous, dynamic Publisher) and "susan geitzenauer" (our "Person of the Year" for 2002) also to no avail. The query that did work was the original one that we first noticed. the query was "troy baloun".
Mr. Baloun has only been mentioned once in our newsblog. Yet he is the only subject that has brought Dogpile or any other search engine any notice of us at all. We, of course, don't know who was looking for Troy Baloun, but we are sure glad they found the Holabird Advocate.
"STONER STEVE" IS BUSTED! DUDE, YOUR GETTING A CELL!
The actor known as "Stoner Steve" in commercials for Dell computers was arrested buying a small bag of marijuana, police said. Benjamin Curtis, a 22-year-old New York University drama student, was arraigned last Monday on a misdemeanor drug possession charge.
Curtis is better known as, "Stoner Steve", a surfer type who proclaims, "Dude, yer gettin' a Dell!" The ad campaign drove up computer sales and spawned T-shirts, caps, and backpacks, along with Web sites and online fan clubs.
