Christmas Costs Are Rising
If you want your True Love to sing about you, It'll cost you a pretty fair amount of Bank this year. If you bought all the gifts mentioned in the song "12 Days of Christmas", you'll put up $18,920.59 (your actual cost may very). All of us at the Holabird Advocate just want to know one thing. Where does one shop for a leaping lord?
Everything else is as we could have guessed. No surprise that dancing ladies are more expensive that milk maids. And can you believe the price of pear trees these days. They are almost as expensive as 2 tanks of gasoline.
Of course the best Christmas gift ever given was the original. A baby boy who would be our brother. A boy who grew to manhood, and gave us eternal life, eternal love, and eternal light. That is, of course, if Jesus is your "True Love". Compared to the Christ Child, all the gifts listed in the "12 Days" song are just socks and underwear!
Holabird Girls to Shine At Snow Queen
The Highmore Snow Queen pageant will feature a couple Holabird gals. Erin Nemec is among the hopefuls for Miss Highmore. Shelby Hinkle is going to be one of the many "Little Queens" in the pageant. There are reports that Shelby has the best outfit money can buy. Erin's outfit has not been disclosed just yet, but we expect she'll not be dressed as Dorothy Gale from "The Wizard Of Oz" Hopefully someone will snap off a photo of the both of them together and send it into the home office.
Hinkle Brothers Is Back
After a time of reorganizing, the Hinkle Brothers Mutual Fund website is back online. If you want to know what's going on in Wall Street and why, log on. The address is the same www.hinkbros.blogspot.com
Making New Friends, Keeping The Old
Doug Hinkle and the Professor at SDWC have talked Holabird Advocate Publisher, Jerry Hinkle, into signing up for the KCCR Newsletter. We'll still keep Dakota Radio Group's "My First News". No need in giving one a monopoly over the other.
Speaking of old friends, Dusty Johnson was selected to be the chairman of the PUC. Congratulations, Commissioner Johnson! Keep up the good work! All of us here at the Holabird Advocate can hardly wait to vote for you in the next election.
Winter in Lake Googlezon
Submitted by Joan Hansen
It was snowing heavily and blowing to the point that visibility was almost zero when Lena got off work. She made her way to her car and wondered how she was going to make it home. She sat in her car while it warmed up and thought about her situation. She remembered Ole's advice that if she got caught in a blizzard, she should wait for a snow plow to come by and follow it. That way she would not get stuck in a snow drift. This made Lena feel much better and sure enough in a little while, a snow plow went by, and she started to follow it. As she followed the snow plow, she was feeling very smug as they continued, and she was not having any problem with the blizzard conditions. After quite sometime had passed, she was somewhat surprised when the snow plow stopped and the driver got out and came back to her car and signaled her to roll down her window. The snow plow driver wanted to know if she was all right, as she had been following him for a long time. She said that she was fine and told him of Ole's advice to follow a snow plow when caught in a blizzard. The driver replied that it was OK with him, and she could continue if she wanted...But he was done with the Wal-Mart parking lot and was going over to Kmart next.
