Big New Year for the Holabird Advocate
The Holabird Advocate got off to a good start in 2007. According to the Holabird Advocate Circulation Department, our little Newsblog had 71 hits on the first day of the new year. These hits came from not only Hyde County, but from far off exotic places like Mobridge, Gillette, Pasco, and even across the pond into Great Britain. It's nice to see that so many people wanted to start the new year off right with us. Hopefully they'll all be back again.
Shorty Zilverberg is Famous
Our Circulation Department has also discovered that someone at the school in Oakes North Dakota is looking for Shorty Zilverberg of South Dakota. It was the Holabird Advocate that showed then just where to look. It could be that someone up there has a job for him, but all of us here at the Holabird Advocate think that the South Dakota rustlers keep Shorty busy enough.
Western Wranglers on the Road Again
Since hearing of the recent reorganization of the Western Wranglers 4-H club, quite a few folks have been asking about there stretch of adopted highway. Among those inquiring are Nick Nemec, Robert Hanson, and even the Department of Transportation. Darrel and Kristi Hinkle, leaders of the newly reorganized club, will tackle this issue as soon as the find out there this road is. Darrel's brother, Jerry Hinkle, thought the "Adopt a Highway" program was eliminated by Bill Janklow when gays, lesbians, and the KKK wanted to adopt any old road they could. Jerry was wrong! Imagine that! Well, it happens!

Since discovering I am not alone in the Hyde County blogging world, I am thinking about stepping up my consulting efforts. I may be taking on a junior partner for a possible spin off blog at a later date. A former Holabird resident whose opinions are hard to ignore. I will not divulge the name until the deal is closed, in case Mr. Harter signs him up first.
I'm also looking for women who drank TaB Cola back in the 70s. I would like to send them a set of questions for a "Ten Questions With..." segment. Names will be changed to protect the identity of the interviewee and her family.
Is Yclept a word?
An Excerpt From Richard Harter's World
by Richard Harter
There are some oddities. For example, Dr. Lester Grinspoon's Marijuana uses site has an essay by "prairie dog" about how to best view the local scenery. I cannot endorse his suggestions, but I will commend to my readers his description of the local scenery.
I may be the only Highmore resident practicing personal journalism on the web. However Hyde county does have a blogger of note, yclept Jerry Hinkle, who publishes The Holabird Advocate. A former Highmore resident, Rita Mosquita, nee Rita Sporrer, publishes Rita's Ramblings. If I've overlooked anybody please let me know.
And of course, if you are thinking of buying or selling real estate in Hyde county the very person to contact is our very own Lady of the Large Black Dog whose website is at http://www.realtordrinehart.com/.
