KGFX Plans Hometown Tour
Our friends at the Dakota Radio Group have informed us that they will be starting up a series called "The KGFX Hometown Tours" They will start in Pierre and work their way around the "Big Country". All of us here at the Holabird Advocate hope that when they get to Holabird somebody will be here to meet them. Trouble is, they'll only give us an hour. Can anyone truly enjoy the wonder, the beauty and the splendor that is Holabird in 60 measly minutes. That's only 360 seconds. Well, it is radio, so maybe it can be done.
Car Show a Daddy-Daughter Affair
This years Old Settlers Day Car Show had at least two female contestants who inherited a car from their father. we are expecting photos and hopefully a little background from both Lynette Goehring and Vikki Day about their dads, as well as the cars. And for all those who think cars AR just a guy thing, Lynette's Model T won "Best of Show". As they used to say on the Wheaties box, "Watch out big boys!"
Election For New World Wonders
With UNESCO's support, a contest was launched to elect the new seven wonders of the world. There are 20 candidates and the monument of the Christ Redeemer is one of them. You can vote for 7 wonders. You can vote for the Statue of Liberty, a symbol of the spirit of America. You can vote for the Stonehenge, a marvel of mechanical engineering. But vote also for the Christ Redeemer. It stands for all we wish for our planet to have: love, brotherhood, equality, respect for nature, commitment, affection, and peace, You can vote by using this link to register. http://www.new7wonders.com/index.php?id=409&L=0
The New 7 Wonders of the World will be announced during the Official Declaration ceremony in Lisbon, Portugal on Saturday, July 7, 2007.
Additions and Corrections
A few things were inadvertently left out of our Old Settlers Day coverage. First, we violated our 11 commandment: "Thou shalt remember thy Readers for with out them thou wouldst be writing to thyself" We forgot to mention that Sue Grable, who lives in an undisclosed location in New Mexico was full of praise for our little Newsblog. Jerry Hinkle, courageous dynamic Publisher of the Holabird Advocate is finding out more and more why Bernie Hunhoff carries a notebook with him. Perhaps a dose or two of that honey and apple cider vinegar mixture would help our Jerry's memory.
Also not working for Jerry is his powers of persuasion. He couldn't talk his cousin Kevin Hansen into coming down to Highmore to be on his Pig/Mud wrestling team. Brittany Hinkle talked Jerry into sponsoring her team in Pig/Mud wrestling, but her mother wasn't having it. Oh well, there's always next year.
