Rain? Not Much!
The weather Radio went of at 6 am with a storm warning for Potter County, but all they got at the Ponderosa was a sprinkle that didn't even warrant a look at the rain gauge. Larry Nickleson reported 1.85 inches with a little hail, so it could have been worse!
There's a New Dog in Town
How much does a Dog license cost in Alpena? Don't ask us, ask Alan and Shannon Walls! Shannon and the rest report that they have a new member of the family (photos pending). They found out what all of us here at the Holabird Advocate already knew. That Nancy Kutz is a very nice lady! She sold them a sweet little westie/mini schnauzer that they named Pebbles! Their trip to Highmore was time well spent.
After having dug to a depth of 10 meters last year, Scottish scientists found traces of copper wire dating back 100 years and came to the conclusion that their ancestors already had a telephone network more than 100 years ago.
Not to be outdone by the Scots, in the weeks that followed, British Scientists dug to a depth of 20 meters, and shortly after, headlines in the UK newspapers read: "British archaeologists have found traces of 200 year old copper wire and have concluded that their ancestors already had an advanced high-tech communications network 100 earlier than the Scots."
One week later, "The Klub", a Sunburg, Minnesota newspaper reported the following: "After digging as deep as 30 meters in corn fields near Games Lake, Ole Johnson, a self taught archaeologist, reported that he found absolutely nothing. Ole has therefore concluded that 300 years ago Norwegians were already using wireless."
