Jerry Hinkle Passes Physical
It took a while, but Jerry Hinkle mustered up enough courage to go in for the old poke, prod, and cough routine. Harold and Mary Hinkle went along so they could attend a few rummage sales. The physical wasn't as bad as Jerry thought it would be. The doctor was competent, and did everything by the book. It was very time consuming, however, but it's over now. Everything checked out OK, which may surprise some people. Of course there was the usual jazz: lose weight, lower the blood pressure, do the hokey poky, and turn yourself around. The Hinkles saw Mary Jo Gran on they way out of the clinic. Mary Jo says that she and her husband, Orv Gran, will be in Iowa during Highmore's 125th Anniversary, and so they will have to miss the celebration this year.
The rummage sales were pretty good, despite the rain. Harold picked up a raincoat, which was a rather timely purchase. Mary gave $2 for a box of 44 pairs of socks. They could have picked up a treadmill for $80, but they had no way to get it home. Jerry didn't buy anything, but did help another guy load up the grill that he bought.
They had dinner at Burger King. Mary treated everyone to the special of the day, a double bacon cheeseburger with fries and a drink. Not bad, considering that Jerry wanted to get a Prime Rib Sandwich at Quiznoz.
The home office will be closed on Monday. That's when Jerry goes to DWU so he can register. He has to be there at 8:30 pm, which means getting up at 5 am. There will be 200 or so entering the University this fall from several states and even from as far away as Tanzania. Getting up at 5 am will be worth it.
Tracy Lennick Gets Down To Basics
It wasn't the most direct route, but Tracy Lennick finally made it to Fort Sill for his Basic Training. He will be there for 6 weeks, doing whatever needs to get done. He's not allowed and contact with family during that time. All of us here at the Holabird Advocate are sure he'll do fine. He is part of a military service legacy, from his uncles, Ingvald Haiwick, Kenneth "Butch" Goerhing and Gene Goehring among others. It won't be easy, but then very few things in this life are supposed to be easy.
Pollmaster General Explores Presidency
This list reminds all of us here at the Holabird Advocate of the remark Gary Hart made a couple decades ago about "Snow White and the 7 Dwarfs". At any rate, we got a choice to make. With only six months to go before the primaries start, the excitement of the Presidential race has sped up and shifted into low. We did a poll six months ago, but theire are more candidates now. Let's see if anyone has changed their mind!
