Everything Closed But Pizza Hut
Because today is Native American Day, the Public Library and DWU are closed today. Pizza Hut will be open until midnight. Jerry Hinkle will be working there from 2-7 pm or whenever. Hopefully he'll have time to catch up reading on St. Augustine for his homework.
Publisher Gets Wet
There has been reports that Mitchell had as much as two inches of rain last night and early this morning. Hopefully Hyde County did as well. It was cloudy all day on Sunday. Jerry Hinkle went to Sioux Falls on his own for the very first time yesterday. He made a few wrong turns, got to church late, but had a good talk with Rev. Tim Fountain.
Postcard From Home
by Mary Hinkle
Things here are getting back to normal. We worked calves down at Darrel's yesterday. Ron helped us. We vaccinated then and banned the bull calves. Today they are setting up here so we can do these here one of these days. Emil Eckstein passed away on Thursday. His funeral is on Tuesday at 10:30. I took grandma to the Dr on Wednesday. Everything is fine. Tony and Faye Goehring had a baby boy. They named him Alexander Charles. He was born September 12 (If I remember correctly). Lynell and Sam Wurtz had a boy on October 2 (I believe) They named him Seth William. He only weighed 5 lb. That's about all the news here. We are continuing to pray for you. It sounds like you are very busy. Love, Mom
