Used Gold Mine Sold
When the prospect of converting the old Homestake Gold Mine into a Science Lab was first proposed, our Publisher laughed at the idea. When we published the Governor's photo we on our Front Page, we asked "Would you buy a Used Gold Mine from this Man?" Well, they bought it! So it looks like the Governor got the last laugh on us? Few of us here at the Holabird Advocate understand what will be going on once the lab is converted. However, Barney Nemec says it will work, and that's good enough for us.
Change in Battle for Larry Jensen
We reported yesterday that Larry Jensen was to have his arm removed in his battle against skin cancer. That didn't happen, because the doctors found out that the cancer has spread to his chest. The cancer is growing very rapidly, and is inoperable. It is estimated that in a matter of weeks, the cancer will claim his life. All of us here at the Holabird Advocate hold Larry and his family up in our prayers. We pray that God deals with this cancer in the way that brings him the most glory.
Many of us are wondering why a good strong stout hearted man like Larry Jensen is having to suffer this while another man who actually killed a person gets to die a humane death that will take a matter of minutes to complete. We don't understand it, but that is how it is. Regardless we pray for both men tonight. May the Father in Heaven give comfort to them both.Library Destroyed

GEORGE W. BUSH PRESIDENTIAL LIBRARY DESTROYED BY FLOOD
Crawford, Texas (AP)--A tragic flood this morning destroyed the personal library of President George W. Bush. The flood began in the presidential bathroom where both of the books were kept. Both of the books have been lost. A presidential spokesperson said the president was devastated, as he had almost finished coloring the second one. The White House tried to call FEMA, but there was no answer.
North of 40:Think again
by Red Green
One of the ways of keeping an alert mind well into your declining years is to keep your brain active as often as possible. Play bridge or do crossword puzzles or try to explain to your wife why you bought that boat.
The worst thing you can do is to let your mind go idle. Here are some danger signs to watch for that indicate you may have stopped thinking:
There's a promotion coming up at work and you're sure you're going to get it.
You notice women looking at you seductively.
You have an upcoming parent-teacher meeting and expect it to go well.
You bought a used Lada on eBay.
You believe you can comb your hair in such a way that nobody can see your bald spot.
You buy clothes that are too small because you're going to lose weight.
You expect the government to do something.
Latest from Pollmaster General
So far, 44% of those surveyed think that they are smarter that W. Another 33% admit that Bush is smarter than they are (but would they say it publicly). The rest say that the President is just as smart as they are.
Now on to the next question. With temperatures rising along with the fire danger. We'd like to know if you Readers think we should start in praying for rain again. Or is it too soon to think about that? Log on and vote now!
