Come Hahn Inn Becomes
Temporary Home Office
There hasn't been a lot of activity at the Holabird Advocate because the Ponderosa computer is under siege. We have had no access to either e-mail or the internet since September 13. The computer is currently being looked at by Jeremy Van Tassel.
Today, we have set up a new home office at the Come Hahn Inn in Highmore. If anyone in the Hyde County area has a computer that they are not using for an hour or two, perhaps they will give us a call at the Ponderosa sometime.

Memo to Popeye: Eat Beef
by Jerry Hinkle
Holabird Advocate Publisher
Hey, Popeye! I know you're strong to the finish when you eat your spinich and all, but get hip. Beef is where it's at now. Yes I know one can get e coli from beef, but only if you don't cook it properly. Raw spinich is hard to cook properly! So the next time Wimpy says he'll gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today, buy another hamburger for yourself.
