Billion Gives Bloggers Respect
The Holabird Advocate Circulation Department reports that the Media Page at Dr. Jack Billion's website have set up a link to yesterday's edition. They changed the headline in the link, but then so would we if we had been in their place. To see what we mean, reread the article.
We noticed that other blogs were listed right along side the so-called legitimate press. We can only imagine what the other bloggers think about having their media outlets placed alongside the Rapid City Journal, KSFY and Keloland. As for us, we are grateful to the Billion camp for giving us bloggers a break. Our courageous, dynamic Publisher has a feeling that Todd Epp is primarily responsible for this, and give him the lions share of the credit.
See if you can find the Holabird Advocate! Here's the link to that page: http://billionforgovernor.com/site/component/option,com_weblinks/catid,29/Itemid,140/
Vandals Set Fire to Lake Chapelle
A fire was reported near Lake Chapelle in Hyde County and was allegedly started when a group of 18 and 19-year-olds got together for an illegal underage party and lit a campfire. Cory Flor, GF&P Conservation Officer for Hyde and Hand Counties, says that both counties are currently under a burn ban. Fire officials say that the underage group left the location before the department arrived to put out the fire-and about five acres of grass and some trees were scorched. Flor says everyone should be careful with fires, especially during the dry conditions that are currently found in many areas. Flor says small fires can become big ones in a short time and can easily get out of hand. No charges have yet to be filed in the Chapelle Lake fire and underage party, but Flor says authorities continue to investigate the incidents.
A Military Prayer Request
Submitted by Joan Hansen
Our troops need our prayers for strength, endurance, and safety. If it be God's will, give these men and women the strength they need to prevail. According to the weather reports, it is 122 degrees in Iraq right now - and the low will be 111! Of all the gifts you could give a US Soldier, Sailor, Airman, Marine & others deployed in harm's way, Prayer is the very best one!!!!!
Pray this prayer for our soldiers:
"Lord, hold our troops in your loving hands. Protect them as they protect us. Bless them and their families for the selfless acts they perform for us in our time of need. I ask this in the name of Jesus, our Lord and Savior. Amen."

I really started something a few days back. I had said that there was a chance that the Holabird Advocate may have to be disbanded, should I get accepted into DWU in the future. Let me remind you all that if it happens, this won't be anytime soon. If I am able to blog once there, I will. When that happens, I will have to change the name. I feel that the Holabird Advocate should be managed locally. I've kicked around possible names like "Mitchell Nightly Democracy" or even "UBS News". Let me repeat. This won't happen anytime soon, and may not happen at all. There are a few details to be ironed out.
One detail is that my mother thinks I need to see if any of my previous college credits will transfer. Now whether or not it's a good idea, I'll have to do it. One thing that I have learned at Hinkle University is that one should always listen to one's mother, especially when she yells one's full name out loud.
I've also got to get into DWU. One suggestion not from my mother is to see if Senator McGovern will write a letter of recommendation for me. Since it was he that recommended DWU to me, that may be worth a shot. Trouble is, I don't know his address, or phone number. Interesting, since we live in a state where the Governor's number and address is in the phone book right next to his name.
I have been to the DWU website, and I must say that I'm impressed with the place. They have a Political Science Department, a Theatre Department, and a class about John Wesley's philosophy. What is not to like about this school? Well, the price is steep, but that is the least of it now. If I must go here, I'll find a way to pay for it. Anybody out there need a spare kidney?
