Ponderosa Has Quiet Independence Day

No parade, picnics or fireworks for the Hinkle family this July 4th. Noel Pothast took Doug and Cade Hinkle to the Black Hills to see the Mount Rushmore Fireworks, and take in a little hard sales pitch for one of the condos out there. Darrel Hinkle is making hay while the sun shines. Nobody asked and Darrel never told what the Kristi and the kids were up to. Harold and Mary Hinkle are getting some last minute packing done before they start out for Europe tomorrow. The plane leaves in the Twin Cities area on Friday night. Our Publisher is working on this holiday. It's gets harder every year to find something in a patriotic vein to do for this day. This years South Dakota Songbook will have to do.

Ken and Jo Hansen are having a big old time in Clear Lake. Word is that Bill and Hillary Clinton are in the parade over there. All of us here at the Holabird Advocate hope that nobody throws their under britches at the President to get his attention. If they do, we wonder if they will be boxers or briefs. The Clinton's do have one idea that Jerry Hinkle can support. If one can't spend the 4th of July in South Dakota, Iowa is the best place to go. In fact, truth be told, his best Independence Day was spent in Iowa.

A Warning from Pakistan

This morning, from a cave somewhere in Pakistan, Taliban Minister of Migration, Mohamed Omar, warned the United States and Canada that if military action against Iraq continues, Taliban authorities will cut off America 's and Canada 's supply of convenience store managers. And if this action does not yield sufficient results, cab drivers will be next, followed by Dell and Sprint customer service reps. It's getting ugly I'm making a difference. Make every IM count for the cause of your choice.


North of 40: It's tough at the top

by Red Green

Recently, I played golf with an excellent golfer. This guy was much better than the usual duffers I hang around with. He was much more focused, more intense, more unhappy. I've noticed this behavior pattern in other accomplished people. The master craftsman, the diva, the respected artist. It seems that the better you are at something, the less you enjoy it. I'm sure the opposite is also true, which is why so many men love sex.

South Dakota Songbook

We dedicate these words to every Gold Star Mother out there!

More Than a Name on a Wall

by the Statler Brothers

I saw her from a distance

As she walked up to the wall

in her hand she held some flowers

as her tears began to fall

and she took out pen and paper

as to trace her memories

and she looked up to heaven

and the words she said were these...

She said Lord my boy was special, and he meant so much to me

and Oh I'd love to see him

just one more time you see

All I have are the memories

and the moments to recall

So Lord could you tell him,

He's more than a name on a wall..

She said he really missed the family

and being home on Christmas day

and he died for God and Country

in a place so far away

I remember just a little boy

playing war since he was three

But Lord this time I know, He's not coming home to me

And she said Lord my boy was special, and he meant so much to me

and Oh I'd love to see him

But I know it just can't be

So I thank you for my memories

and the moments to recall

But Lord could you tell him,

He's more than a name on a wall..

Lord could you tell him,

He's more than a name on a wall..

Would you notify the police if you saw a Mexican citizen sneaking into the United States?
