Have You Made Your Pledge Today?
by Jerry Hinkle
I love these South Dakota pledge break times. Not as much as I used to, since they have the begging as part of the program now. Believe it or not, I usually don't get someone as pretty as Rina Bellew ask me anything of me. And the rates are reasonable. $35/year for an entire family. Benefits? How about Red Green, British Comedy, Rina Bellew's voiceover work on the occasional "Dakota Life" story, and Mr. Rogers for the kids.
If you give more than $35, you can get some nifty premium gifts as well. I'm not talking coffee cups and tote bags, but high quality CD and DVD products. The very best of drama, music and comedy. There is one thing that I want to know. How much does one have to pledge to get an autographed picture of Rina Bellew?
So what are you waiting for? Pledge already! Log on to South Dakota Public Broadcasting and give up your $35 right here: https://secure.publicbroadcasting.net/sdpb/pledge.pledgemain

After the Pledgin'
Williams and Ree are done begging. They were up to $20,000 when they went off the air. The show was not their best work, but it was still excellent. Not a lot of singing, but lots of their trademark funny stuff. The boys even shook down some of South Dakota's wealthiest for a little bit of dough. Jim Wegner, George Kessler, and Douglas Wiken, just to name a few. It is our understanding that they even got the Hinkle family to part with $45. That's not an easy thing to do either.
Rina Ballew wasn't there, but a magically delicious young lady named Carol (last name unknown, but our Publisher would love to let her use his) filled in most beautifully.
