Publisher Starts as an A Student
We've been told that things sound upbeat on our little Newsblog. There is some reason to be. On Jerry Hinkle's first big paper for Classics of Christian Thought, he scored a 28 out of a possible 30. In his first test over the Vicktor Frankl Unit, Jerry scored a 37 out of a possible 40. Jerry isn't letting this early success go to his head. Things are getting tougher but the day. His job with Pizza Hut has left him with less time to study. Still, he remembers the friend that Leonard knew, and that helps Jerry out a lot. One other thing that helped Jerry was a little knowledge of Leo Buscgalia. Jerry is thinking about doing his term paper on Buscgalia, if he could find at least 4 books about him. Any Readers out there who can find one might like to help him out. If you have one of his books, hold on to it for a spell.
Major Change of Minor at Hand
A few days ago, Professor Sean Flynn asked Jerry Hinkle to change his Minor from Public Service and Leadership to History. Jerry is considering such an undertaking, but wants top see how he did on the History test he took earlier today before making up his mind.
Salsa Salsa Set For Oct 11
The MCC has set their annual Salsa Salsa event for Thursday, October 11 at noon in the Village as part of Hispanic Heritage Month. As previously reported, three degrees salsa sauce will be available, as will salsa dancing lessons and demonstrations. All of us here at the Holabird Advocate are hoping that the MCC has a good turnout.
Hispanic Heritage Month begins in every year on September 15, the anniversary of independence for five Latin American countries—Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua. In addition, Mexico declared its independence on September 16, and Chile on September 18. The term Hispanic, as defined by the U.S. Census Bureau, refers to Spanish-speaking people in the United States of any race. On the 2000 Census form, people of Spanish/Hispanic/Latino origin could identify themselves as Mexican, Puerto Rican, Cuban, or "other Spanish/Hispanic/Latino." More than 35 million people identified themselves as such on the 2000 Census.
North of 40: Time is relative
by Red Green
Last week, I was at a 25th wedding anniversary for an average normal couple, if there is such a thing. He's a schoolteacher, she's a sales clerk. These are two careers where you don't take business trips. That means that at the end of every day, you both go home. You have to respect that. This is a marriage with no time off. Compare that to the scenario where the man and the woman are both senior executives in a large corporation. They travel all the time. In 25 years of marriage, they're really only together about four years. We need to differentiate between these types of marriages. It's not how many years you're married, it's how many days and, more importantly nights, you've spent together. Now obviously we don't want to discount the accomplishment of a 25-year marriage, regardless of the reduced years of active service, but I think you have the right to calibrate your gift based on the degree of difficulty. The traveling business couple should get flowers and a card, the stay-at-home working couple deserves something better. I suggest a gift of separate holidays for each of them or a large bottle of an expensive beverage with a significant alcohol content.
