Harvest of Blessing
The Larry Kerr crew (which included Darrel Hinkle) harvested winter wheat At the Bar JZ Ranch on Friday. Peg Zilverberg squeezed off a couple shots of the men working. Of the crop, Peg said, "What an unexpected blessing as we had planted the wheat to put up for hay". Darrel told his oldest brother how many bushels per acre the filed ran. However, that information is not being included in this article. In Holabird, that kind of information is the equivalent of bragging about how rich one is. None of the Zilverbergs would do anything as vulgar as that. Let's just call it "Good" and leave it at that.
The reason the Kerr operation got this gig is quite a tale. Don Zilverberg came to the Ponderosa to borrow the Wilson portable corral. Larry and the rest were getting ready to finish Darrel's wheat while Don was there. The blessings just keep on coming!
Rescue Squad Saves The Day
Our Good friends at KCCR tewll us that some of the Pierre Rescue Squad members were busy on Saturday when they helped retrieve a male swimmer who swam across the Missouri River from the Pierre shore to LaFramboise Island, but couldn't get back.
Assistant Pierre Fire Chief Doug Hinkle says the squad was called when onlookers noticed that the man, later found to be heavily intoxicated, seemed to be unresponsive while lying on the island shore. Squad members, along with an EMT, jet skied over to the island and brought the man back.
Hinkle says the man, who was not injured, became combative. He ultimately was taken into protective custody by police.
Agnes Hahn Gets a Tune up
Agnes Hahn had not been feeling well for the last couple of days. Sunday afternoon s he called the ambulance to take her to the hospital. She is fine now, but was having some trouble breathing and had fluid building up. She was admitted to the hospital in Pierre so they could re-adjust her medicine to remove her fluid and keep her heart working properly. She was worried that her three oldest daughters and her orphan girl from Texas, who should be in Norway about now,may want to cut their vacation short. They'd better not if they know what's good for them. Our Publisher called her this afternoon and she said that she might get out tomorrow morning.
Louise Hjordt called the home office to find out where Agnes has been keeping herself. Louise had a vacation of her own staying with Irv and Patsy Morford for a week. She'd been trying since Saturday to get hold of Agnes. Louise said she'll be glad when Agnes gets home. Indeed we all will!
Mary Hinkle might well have been in charge of everything had she been here. Bonnie Nickleson and Leanne Hoffman did a great job filling in for Mary in her absence. Mary might be surprised that she was so easily replaced, but all of us here at the Holabird Advocate should take note that it took two women to do the job.
