Prairie Deacon Media Declares "War"
Jerry Hinkle, CEO of Prairie Deacon Media announces that he will be starting up another blog titled "War on Cancer". It will be a web site dedicated to those who have literally fought cancer. The idea was thought up as a way to recognize those who survived, and those who dies fighting. It may not be as glamorous as a "War on Terror", but it's a way to increase awareness of this terrible disease in all it's deadly forms. If there is anyone out there who has fought cancer, or has cancer in the family, and wants to be a part of this new venture, they are welcome. We hope to spread the word about fundraisers like Relay For Life, or Steps For Hope. We may even be able to spread the word about benefit dinners for those who need financial help in their own battle with the big C. most importantly, we hope to share the stories of hope and struggle.
Jerry was inspired to do this because of all the good that came about through his involvement with the Hunter Mees family. He wonders how many other families there are that need the kind of support that Hunter got.
John Zilverberg Catches On
At least one other major Blogger has read "My Opinion by John Zilverberg". Doug Wiken from "Dakota Today" had this to say: http://dakotatoday.typepad.com/dakotatoday/2007/01/another_sd_blog.html
What Mr Wiken may not know is that John is the brother of the famed Cartoonist, Jim Zilverberg, that he refereed to. John himself knows a thing or two about the struggles of an immigrant family as his dad Jake Zilverberg, an artist in his own right, came to this country from Holland. All of us here at the Holabird Advocate are sure that Jake didn't have it as easy as the illegal alien of today, and he came here lawfully, learned English, and didn't have his hand out. Jake earned his part of the American Dream the hard way. Remember that when you read John's latest article: http://johnzilverberg.blogspot.com/2007/01/illegal-immigrants.html
Too Soon to Vote for President

Well, the results are in, and it looks like very few people are in a voting mood. Of the Readers who took part in our Presidential election survey, 47% wanted to give their answer a year from now. A mere 7% want to make Hillary Clinton the first Madame President. A slightly more impressive 20% want to make Barrack Obama the first known African American President. The rest are thinking (if you can call it that) "Hinkle for President". Of course we don't know which Hinkle they're thinking of.
I have a theory that may or may not be proven until 2008. I have always thought that since Black males got the vote before women, that a Black man will be elected President before a woman will. It's such a pity to know that I have to wait a whole year to find out. My Grandma Agnes is a woman, and she'd vote for Tiger Woods anytime.
