Heat Gets Cattle Hot!
Hundreds of head of South Dakota cattle have been lost because of heat and humidity. The news of thius has spead out all over the country and intothe ears of Don Hinkle of Bonita California. He called his nephew, Jerry Hinkle, at the Pondeosa last night to see how things were, and was reassured that those cattle are in fine shape. It's the confined livestock that really feel the heat. They only have two orphaned calves that are confined, and they are both doing great and have plenty of water. State Veterinarian, Sam Holland, recommends that those who have livestock confined to feedlots spray them with water in the morning when it's cool. He also says that cattle may need to drink as much as three times what they normally do. All of us here at the Holabird Advocate can't agree more, which is unusual for us. The heat has gone down, but the humidity is still there.
Don also told Jerry that they have heard that Tudy Brown is in the hospital with what may be colin cancer. We certainly all pray that she will be delivered from any such fate.
Get well quick Tudy!Goehring European Vacation

We were met by Signe and Svein at the train and they walked us to the hotel and had dinner with us. They were so excited to meet us. Judy and Jim arrived the day before. Yesterday we took 3 cars and travelled through tunnels and ferries through the mountains and by God's grace we happened upon a farm in the Fjetland area and he directed us to Thomas Fjetland who lives on the farm where Knute's father was born. Thomas is a genealogist and was so excited to meet us and showed us pictures and even gave us a family picture. He had a old house in which he has a private museum with a trunk that once belonged to Knute's father. It was a good thing that Signe and Svein were with us as he spoke only Norwegian. It was an unbelievable experience! Of course, we took lots of pictures...as we have everywhere else. (Ken has taken 600 pictures so far!) We drove around the fjord and found Høyvik and inquired around but we didn't find the exact place where Berta lived but there are a lot of Høyvicks living in that bay. We went to Jelsa where Mom's dad was baptised and walked around the cemetery and then came back to Stavanger. We left at 8:00 am and arrived back home at 10:00 pm. It was a long day but a wonderful day! This morning we are doing laundry and then will walk around Stavager and then we are invited to Signe and Svein's home for dinner. Just a side note: When we were on the bus tour...we fondly were called the "9" as it seemed we all went and did the same things in a group! Everyday here we have worn jackets for most of the day. It warms up in the pm but it rained a little yesterday and was overcast.....but we are so glad it's not over 100! At least we can put on or take off our jackets.Memo To Lindsay Lohan: Check Your Pockets!"

Ms. Lohan, I don't know you. Heck, I've never even met you. I've only seen one of your movies. It was, ironicly enough, "Herbie Fully Loaded". I must say you really sold it. I believed that you were really a speed demon race car driver. Now I see that you were not acting. I don't want to sound too harsh here. I know you've had a hard couple of years here. A lot of this you are bringing on yourself, however. When I heard that the police found cocaine in your pants, my first thought was, "I wonder if she was wearing those pants at the time". With a South Dakota girl, that kind of thought would never occur to me. It's just that in every picture I've seen of you, there were never any pants. Mostly bikinis and skimpy dresses. Imagine my surprise when I found out that not only were you wearing pants, but they were somebody Else's. Yeah, right! Ms. Lohan, I was born in the morning, but it wasn't this morning. We can't even blame this on your parents, since you just turned 21. The saddest part of this is that you have been given a rare gift. A gift that may be squandered if you spend 8 years in stir. How many young ladies can actually boast that they made a Volkswagen fall in love with them? Not many I assure you! So get help before it's too late. I wish I could help you, but unlike Dr. Phil, I know I can't. You'd better check your pockets, Ms. Lohan, and check your watch as well. I think it's time for you to come to Jesus!
