Hyde County has it's Week
The Highmore Herald reports that the South Dakota Cultural Heritage Center will be is holding "Hyde County Week" from July 8-14. Their Museum in Pierre has many items from the Hyde County area. They even have archives of old newspapers on microfilm, including Holabird's own "Hyde County News" (What? No Holabird Advocate? Looks like we picked the wrong newspaper to revive!) Anyone with the great good fortune to find an old dead tree edition of the Holabird Advocate should call the archives at (605) 224-3804. The Museum is open on Monday-Saturday from 9 am-6:30 pm and on Sundays from 1-4:30pm. The archives are only open on weekdays. Admission is free to ages 17 and under, $3 to ages 60 and over, and 44 to everyone else who is not a Society Member. Look at their website at http://www.sdhistory.org/ !
Anyone wishing to celebrate Hyde County Week, and has extra room is encouraged to contact our Publisher, who would be more than happy to buy gas or pay the admission ticket price! If you contact him during Hyde County Week, you might even get your name printed in our little Newsblog. His address is firstname.lastname@example.org
E.E. Hinkle Gets Greetings
The South Dakota Century Club has sent a birthday card to the late E.E. Hinkle. Had he been alive to read the card, he'd be turning 105. As it is, the only one celebrating his birthday will be his grandson, Jerry Hinkle. E.E. breathed his last on June 9, 2006, dying young at the old age of 103. Because his 105th birthday is on a Sunday this year, we are debating whether to pay our respects on the actual day, the day before, or not to do it at all.
All off for Europe!
Harold And Mary Hinkle motored toward Fridley, Minnesota on their first leg of the journey to Europe. Harold called from 90 miles west of the Twin Cities to let the home office know they got that far. He even let Mary drive part of the way. (WHAT! Yeah, that's right! Imagine how shocked she was!).
Jerry has a list of chores about 2 miles long. He doesn't know how he's going to keep it all straight, but he has to because he's the only one that can do it. Still, Jerry has to wonder why someone who leaves all this work behind thinks they have time to go to Europe for a month. Jerry will get the job done, with God's help. It's not the work he has trouble with, it's remembering to do the work. Just like 4th grade!
