We are Back
If you're anything like Mr. Don Grungio, you've missed us. Don writes: "As a dedicated reader of your blogs, I am saddened to see that you haven't posted anything lately! Please, for the sanity of those in your extensive South Dakota fan base, write more blogs!!!!!! Thanks! ".
We're glad Don likes to read our offerings. With Pizza Hut, classes at DWU, and sleeping on the odd occasion, our Publisher has had little time for blogging. Last night was round 2 "Wesleyan Idol", which was fun while it lasted, but it looks like only a miracle from God will make him one of the three selected to go on to Idleness. It could be time to put the fun away and get some work done.
Death in the Family
Jerry Hinkle's 2nd cousin Pam Huber was shot in the head and died last Friday afternoon. Because we are so far removed from Highmore, the details get a little sketchy. The death is being investigated by the DCI. Hopefully answers will come soon.
Mitchell in Deep Freeze
Anyone getting up in Mitchell today woke up to frost. That's exactly what happened to Jerry Hinkle this morning as the temperature was a bone chilling 22 degrees. Jerry didn't pack for winter back in August, so he has been mildly chilly. Today was McGovern Day at DWU, so he went to part of the program as part of his Public Service and Leadership class. Jerry decided to wear his suit coat as an extra layer of clothing. He'll be back at 3:20 pm to hear the Senator Emeritus speak at the conclusion of events.
Are you ONE
ONE is Americans of all beliefs and every walk of life - united as ONE - to help make poverty history. We are a campaign of over 2.4 million people and growing from all 50 states and over 100 of America's most well-known and respected non-profit, advocacy and humanitarian organizations. As ONE, we are raising public awareness about the issues of global poverty, hunger, disease and efforts to fight such problems in the world's poorest countries. As ONE, we are asking our leaders to do more to fight the emergency of global AIDS and extreme poverty. ONE believes that allocating more of the U.S. budget toward providing basic needs like health, education, clean water and food would transform the futures and hopes of an entire generation in the world's poorest countries.ONE is nonpartisan; there's only one side in the fight against global AIDS and extreme poverty. Working on the ground in communities, colleges and churches across the United States, ONE members both educate and ask America's leaders to increase efforts to fight global AIDS and extreme poverty, from the U.S. budget and presidential elections to specific legislation on debt cancellation, increasing effective international assistance, making trade fair, and fighting corruption. Everyone can join the fight. The goal of ending poverty may seem lofty, but it is within our reach if we take action together as one. You can start now by joining the ONE Campaign and pledging your voice to the fight against extreme poverty and global AIDS. To find out more about ONE go to http://www.one.org/
