Elvis Turns 72
Today is the 72nd anniversary of the birth of Elvis Presley. In the past there has been speculation as to whether or not Elvis is really dead. All of us here at the Holabird Advocate are keeping an open mind. There has been little verifiable proof that Elvis is still alive, some have said the same thing concerning Paul McCartney. The musical act known as "Wings" has been held up as proof that Paul really is dead.
At any rate, our Publisher has decided that when he becomes as rich and famous as Elvis, he will buy all of his friends a Cadillac.
Cade Hinkle Takes A Bite
When Cade Hinkle was born 5 years and 1 day ago, he was allergic to milk, eggs, and peanuts. The first two allergies went away on there own. Recently Cade went to a controlled setting to take a bite of peanut butter. No ill effects were reported. In fact, Cade had a rash that went away after taking the peanut butter.
Anyone who knew Cade's uncle, Jerry Hinkle, growing up could tell you that his blood was at least 52% peanut oil. That made Cade's allergy all the more painful. It appears the curse has been lifted. Congratulations Cade! You are a real Hinkle now!

What's In my DVR?
by Jerry Hinkle
I just got done watching one of the funniest movies ever. "Drop Dead Gorgeous" is "Fargo" meets "The Miss America Pageant". The bulk of the action takes place in Mount Rose, Minnesota, (just down the road from Brainerd, don't ya know). The film is actually a mockumentery of a local beauty pageant. With very talented actresses such as Denise Richards, Brittany Murphy, Amy Adams, and Kirsten ($6 Burger) Dunst playing some of the contestants.
Kirstie Alley stretches her acting muscles ever so slightly as ahe plays both the director of the contest and mother of one of the contestants. This is Ms. Dunst's movie, however. Make no mistake about that. In fact I may have to upgrade her to the $9 burger. The movie was THAT good as was her performance.
If this movie is not in your DVR, see if you can rent it at the local Stop 'n Rob. better yet, go to Walmart and buy it at the 10/under section (what a bargain) I give it two thumbs up!
