VOL. V Issue 11B
Holabird Company to Appear on KSFY
The Highmore Herald has reported that Scott Holler of the Holler Construction company will be featured on the ABC Television show, "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition", which will air Sunday November 5 at 7 pm Holabird Time. All of us here at the Holabird Advocate may watch this silly show if someone could answer one simple question. (Who the $#&% is Scott Holler?) No not that one, this one. Would Scott Holler like to join the Holabird Chamber of Commerce so we can get to know him better. (Oh, you mean who the $$$$ is Scott Holler!). Welcome to Holabird, Scott. We thought we knew everybody here, since Holabird's population is only 38. Looks like we goofed, doesn't it?
Scott volunteered to be a part of the "Extreme Makeover" project. The least we can do is volunteer to watch the show and support one of our own. We'll even let him into the Chamber of Commerce for free.
Happy Anniversary Hunter
It was almost a year ago, on November 4 that Hunter Mees was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma. Since then, he has fought the disease and is currently in remission. He will be having another check up soon and in and effort to spread a positive vibe, Holabird Advocate Publisher, Jerry Hinkle is declaring November 4, "Face of Hope Day" for Hunter and the rest of our Readers.
We encourage any and all people who are able to send photos of Hunter Mees to our G-mail address: email@example.com and we will put in as many as possible along with a special message from Shannon Walls and maybe a word or two from Jerry himself. This may be an occasion when we can break our old Circulation record of 94 hits.

I met Ruth Wood back in the Summer of 1998 during my tour of duty as an agent for the Census Bureau. When I told her of my intention to run for District 23 House of Representatives in 2000. She talked me out of that noble endeavor by saying, "Politics is not a noble profession. Stay out of it kid!". I took her advice. I have not had an iota or remorse or regret about that decision since. A short 8 years later, the shoe has changed foot. Ruth is running I am not. Truth be told I was shocked that in the Pollmaster General I got 9 votes and everyone else got 3. Fact is, were I to run, I believe all I'd get was 9 votes in the whole entire district. I'm going to stand by my pledge to not tell you who to vote for. But I will tell you who not to vote for in this election. That would be ME!!!!! Here's a second chance to do the job right.
