Publisher Remembers When
KGFX Made Him Move It
Today's edition of "My Daily News" from the Dakota Radio Group brought on an involuntary memory of childhood for our Publisher. His Grandmother, Agnes Hahn had a poster like the photo to your left. Interestingly enough, it hung in the downstairs restroom. She also had a poster in the billiard room from KGFX declaring "Grab a chunk of country" That had a scantily clad, but shapely lady and a skinny grizzled old man. The man was grabbing a chunk of the lady's rear end, or at least trying to. Do you suppose Agnes still has those posters somewhere? "Antiques Roadkill" might come to Pierre someday, and that would be an interesting show.
Hinkles Receive Word of Death
Lillian Gronewald called the Ponderosa to inform the Hinkle family of the death of Nora Meyers at age 92. Nora's husband, Ralph Meyers, still going at 94, is E.E. Hinkle's cousin on each of their mother's sides. Ralph had said that Nora was failing when he was informed of E.E.'s passing. All of us here at the Holabird Advocate offer our condolences to Nora's family at this time.

I just got done proofreading an article for the South Dakota Magazine's Dakotiana section in the September-October 2006 issue of that excellent institution. It is the article that the magazine's Publisher, Bernie Hunhoff wrote about me and our little Newsblog. I was tempted to publish it here as written, but decided that it will be something we can all look forward to reading.
The home office will be closed tomorrow. Plans are to do whatever we feel like, but going to Yankton is out. Maybe as far as Fort Pierre, but that's it. If there is a way to celebrate Independence, I will find it. I was invited to the Nemec picnic and parade. As far as that goes, I might just stay home and watch fireworks on the tube. That's the wonderful thing about this country. There are all kinds of freedoms, as long as we don't burn down the County
I wish more families celebrated the day like the Nemec family does. Flying the flag, singing the songs of Freedom, and marching to "Stars and Stripes Forever". That just isn't done anymore. And as corny as it may sound, I thank God that it's done here in Holabird! I hope it catches on in America again!
