Holabird Advocate

Providing all the news we see fit to print since 2002!

Monday, July 21, 2003
VOL. II Issue 7N
Sunday morning saw the nearly 101 year old E.E. Hinkle going to church dressed in his birthday T-shirt from last year. Just as Harold feared he would, E.E. got up to make a speech in which he invited everyone at church to come over to the Ponderosa, "To see how the Hinkles live" on Tuesday for his 101st birthday. It was at this point in the church service that Mary Hinkle started to pray.
George and Mavis Kennedy surprised the Hinkles by showing up to the Ponderosa yesterday afternoon. Mavis said she wanted to be put to work, so this morning she baked two cakes and after dinner helped Mary give Joyce a bath at the Ponderosa Pines Old Age Assistance Home.
Kelvin and Donna Kennedy will be coming to the festivities as well. They should arrive sometime tomorrow, hopefully they will be there before all the food is eaten.
The present incarnation of the Holabird Advocate is the third such in the History of Holabird, South Dakota. Our courageous, dynamic Publisher has been studying up on the history of all things related to Holabird since preparing to make it and Hinkletown, Iowa sister cities.
The first Holabird Advocate was created in 1883, 110 years ago, by A.B. Vines. In 1891 the concern was sold to a gentleman who changed the name to the "Hyde County Advocate" and moved to Highmore. It was later revived under the original title by 15 year old George W. Perkins. The second effort didn't last long either.
Now in this century another Holabird Advocate has started. Instead of a business, it's more of a hobby. Instead of a newspaper, it's a Newsblog. It's not known how long this will last, but it's hoped that if we keep growing as is, perhaps this time the name of "Holabird Advocate" will stay around for a little while longer. In the meantime, keep reading.
