TIME Makes "You" the Person of the Year
In what has to be one of the lamest moves in TIME Magazine history, if not the lamest is making "You" their Person of the Year. In this case "You" are all the people who either provide Internet content or look at it through the computer screen. Of course that would include all of us here at the Holabird Advocate. Todd Epp has tied with Steve Sibson for this honor too! What a shock for both of them to realize they are equals in this one respect.
Cade Hinkle Expected to Make
pre-Christmas Ponderosa Visit
Doug Hinkle and Noel Pothast have to go to Rapid City on business this Thursday. They asked Harold and Mary Hinkle to take Cade Hinkle into their home on Wednesday and bring him back on Saturday, when Doug and the family will celebrate the birth of both Noel and our Lord with an all you can eat prime rib buffet (you gotta say it with beef, ya know). It only took them 3-4 seconds to agree to the request. For Cade, this means pancakes for breakfast every morning, checking cows, and occasionally biting his uncle, Jerry Hinkle. To prevent that, Jerry is hoping to make Christmas cookies for Cade to bite instead. The Hinkle family has a wide assortment of cookie cutters. Of course, cutting the cookies (and sometimes eating the dough) is the best part of baking.
Singing Reviews Are In
To be honest, all of us here at the Holabird Advocate are shocked, but not everyone who attended Christmas at the Courthouse thought that our courageous, dynamic Publisher, Jerry Hinkle did a bad job of singing. Quite a few said, "that wasn't as bad as I thought it would be!" Others said, "You did fine for someone with no talent". David Zilverberg said, "It could have been worse". Both Ethel Rittel and Joyce Boller want Jerry to sing in church. And Marilyn Hanson said that Jerry should join the community choir. One wonders what they would have said had he not had the sore throat and all the rest.
