Publisher Signs Life Away
No, Holabird Advocate Publisher, Jerry Hinkle has not sold his soul to South Dakota Public TV. He has signed Student Loan Papers with Wells Fargo. If it goes through, they'll be on his back for quite a spell, we reckon. Every cell in his body resisted this step. All of his better judgement told him not to do it. but there was no other way for him to go to DWU. Going into debt is something that fills Jerry with dread. It was a real leap of faith for him to do that. And with a few keystrokes of a computer, plus a signature on the form, it is done.
As long as we're at it, All of us here at the Holabird Advocate hope that those who are able to will give SDPTV a pledge of financial support. That said, we hope you won't have to go into debt to do it. They have some good shows in the present Pledge Drive. The Hinkle family enjoyed the Johnny Cash Show. We must admit that they recorded it, and zapped through the pledge breaks.
Mary Hinkle Gets the Point (Power Point that is)
With UMW Guest Days coming up, Mary Hinkle has spent a good amount of the last few days getting her presentation ready. She will be giving a Power Point slide show of her trip to Europe. Mary has 130 slides in the show so far. Guest Day is Saturday morning at 9 am. Our Publisher has seen a preview of some of her material, and gives it the thumbs up. Now, the show is primarily for ladies, but if any gentlemen are so inclined to show up, they will not be turned away, as long as they behave as gentlemen. That said, Jerry Hinkle will not be in attendance. It's doubtful Harold Hinkle will show up as well.
4-H Youth Shine at Achievement Days
Hyde County did themselves proud at their annual Achievement Days last Friday and Saturday. Among those from Holabird who did well, was Brittany Hinkle. She got more purple ribbons than we could keep track of. She auctioned off her prize chicken for $80. Mary Hinkle bought it, and then let Brit keep it. She was the Grand Champion in the Rabbit Showmanship division. She did well in the fashion review, but we are still waiting for the results of how she did at the dog show. Perhaps her best achievement was being selected as the 4-H Princess for the year. The Prince is one of Bob Ellsworth's grandsons. Bob credits Brit's grandfather, Harold Hinkle, with saving his life once. we don't know if that's true or not, but Bob always waves at Harold whenever he sees him. It is believed that Brit is also in contention for the "All Around 4-Her" Award as well. Her uncle, Jerry Hinkle, was a Junior in High School before he got that one. Of course, he wasn't even trying to get the award when he got it(big surprise, eh!).
Brit was not the only person to do great. Gary Haiwick's granddaughter, Lakeisha Rodman, was selected 4-H Queen. All of Gary's grandchildren did well. especially with their sheep. You could tell they spent a lot of time with them this summer. Jessica Bawdon had the Grand Champion Dairy Goat, so we know where to go for goat milk and maybe even goat cheese in case Harold and Mary need a fix, as they got quite fond of it while in Norway.
Great stuff all around!
