Jerry Hinkle-Idol No More
As he suspected, Holabird Advocate Publisher, Jerry Hinkle, was not in the final 5 contestants of Wesleyan Idol. He was invited back as a guest star to sing during intermission while everyone is going to the can or getting a drink.
And Jerry won't be idle either. In fact, all of us here at the Holabird advocate predict a busier schedule for him. He has recently decided to pursue a double minor, adding History, but retaining Public Service and Leadership. This was not a decision that he entered into lightly. When Jerry got the offer to minor in History, he considered dropping PSL altogether, but Dr. Simmons of the PSL department thinks that Jerry can do it. This move won't be official until Jerry meets with his advisor next Monday at 3pm.
Prayer Service For Pam Huber
by Mary Hinkle
An overflowing crowd attended Pam Huber's prayer service on Tuesday,Nov. 6. Eulogies were presented from Vicki Day, Kathy Kerr, Julie Gutzmer, and Mary Ann Morford. They all described her as a loving parent, compassionate friend, patient, intelligent, willing to serve wherever needed, shy, dependable, helpful and efficient public servant.
She will be missed by all her friends, coworkers and everyone who knew her. She was so unassuming in all she did. She never did things for the glory. She was content to let others be in the spot light. Another overflowing crowd attended her funeral. They had the streets around the Church and surrounding neighborhood blocked off for places to park all the cars. The street in front of the church was parked 4deep and it continued on the other streets. Pastor Peterson gave a great sermon and the funeral was very worshipful although very sad. Now that Ken Huber has been arrested, may there be some closure and all the rumors will be put to rest.
Postcard from Sonoma State
by Don Grungio
I personally, am not from South Dakota and neither are my friends, but one day I was conducting a report on South Dakota for my American History class and I stumbled across your blog. Ever since then, I've been hooked, and I even turned my friends on to the wild and wacky world of Mr. Jerry Hinkle, the Great One. I hope to read more of your tales of craziness very soon! I am not a blogger. I am not nearly cool enough to do so. I am a freshman college student at Sonoma State majoring in Journalism. I can't wait to see the next blog, dude! On behalf of the Hinkleton community, take care!
P.S.- How did that Wesleyan Idol thing go?? I hope you won!
P.S.S.- My girlfriend thinks you are a TOTAL lady's man! What is your secret, oh Great One?!
