Courier is The Style of Today
The Courier Style is the third letter style we've shown. Already it's our least favorite. Happy Saint Patrick's Day anyhow!
Ponderosa Saves Electricity
We have discovered that even though there has only bee one week of Daylight Saving Time, the Ponderosa has saved 600 Kilowatts from this February 15 to March 15 over the same period last year. If they save next month, our Publisher may have to go along with the Government, as much as that pains him.
Mainstreet Cafe Shows Promise
Our Publisher went to the Mainstreet Cafe open house this afternoon. He reports that it looks a very respectable place. The kind of family restaurant that Highmore, indeed the whole of Hyde County could be proud of.
Our Publisher was not alone either, he saw and talked to many others who were there as well. Among them were Elmer Johnson, Tracy Lennick, Teresa and Reed Wescott, and Brett Garrigan. Brett was in Town because his uncle Loren Garrigan died. He thought it fitting for an old Irishman to die on Saint Patrick's Day! All of us here at the Holabird Advocate are inclined to believe that.
The Prayer of Saint Patrick
I arise today Through a mighty strength, the invocation of the Trinity, Through a belief in the Threeness, Through confession of the Oneness Of the Creator of creation.
I arise today Through the strength of Christ's birth and His baptism, Through the strength of His crucifixion and His burial, Through the strength of His resurrection and His ascension, Through the strength of His descent for the judgment of doom.
I arise today Through the strength of the love of cherubim, In obedience of angels, In service of archangels, In the hope of resurrection to meet with reward, In the prayers of patriarchs, In preachings of the apostles, In faiths of confessors, In innocence of virgins, In deeds of righteous men.
I arise today through the strength of Heaven, the rays of the sun, the radiance of the moon, the splendor of fire, the speed of lightening, the swiftness of the wind, the depth of the sea, the stability of the earth the firmness of rock.
An Irish Toast to Friendship

"There are good ships, and there are wood ships, The ships that sail the sea. But the best ships are friendships and may they always be!"
