Pheasant Season Minutes Away
At High Noon in the Holabird Area, it will be a showdown of man against bird to see who has the upper hand. Of course, pheasants don't shoot back, but they fly like the dickens when the shots ring out. If the dogs can stay away from skunks this year, it should be a pretty good season. We'll look forward to hearing reports from all the hunting parties out there.
One report from Harold Hinkle that has nothing to do with pheasants is that Otto Butzman died 3 days ago. Funeral arrangements are pending. We offer his family, especially his wife of 65 years, Esther, our very best.
Publisher goes From Idol to Idle
Holabird Advocate Publisher, Jerry Hinkle, decided to try out for the Wesleyan Idol competition last Thursday night. When auditions started, there were not a lot of contestants, but it built up little by little. Jerry's friend, Melody from Texas, was helping out at the auditions. Jerry got a big surprise, because a few of his fellow students from Public Service and Leadership were there as well. This group includes Katy Duffy from Platte, who we've mentioned before. Jerry let her think that she talked him into trying out. He was going to sing "Don't Know Much About History" since he and Ms. Duffy had a History test the next morning. Instead he sang "Love Me Tender" and "denigrated it to his "best friend in the whole wide room". What Jerry forgot is that it's a very long slow song, and his nerves caught up to him. Instead of sounding like Elvis, he sounded more like Bing Crosby. The song was well received, Ms. Duffy was more than impressed. So impressed, that she let him bump hands with her. Jerry isn't looking for a callback from the "Idol" people, but all of us here at the Holabird Advocate think that he should take Ms. Duffy along. She'll be there whether he invites her or not, that's just how she rolls.
Jerry Hinkle had a 37 out of 40 on his first Philosophy of life test. His test of Thursday was 39 out of a possible 40. With Socrates and Johnathon Livingston Seagull out of the way, the next book is "Broca's Brain" by Carl Sagan. Jerry has read pages 51-71 of the assignment so far, and is impressed with how he debunks all of the "evidence" of paranormal phenomena. Of course, if Sagan rips into Jesus, Jerry will have to get Old testament on his___!
