No Shadow for Publisher
As is the February tradition with Jerry Hinkle, our courageous dynamic Publisher, every ground hog day eats a ground hog (sausage, that is the other white meat) and goes outside to look for his shadow. The snow flurries in and around the city would indicate that he isn't going to find it. The folklore would suggest an early spring. The calendar tells us, however, that this is the midpoint of the winter season. Either way, we can fearlessly predict that Jerry will be complaining that it is hot in 6 months time.
Noem Hosts Town Hall
Our Publisher was proud to be one of the reported 55 people in audience as Rep. Kristi Noem hosted a town hall meeting at the Highland Conference Center yesterday morning. Ms. Noem gave a short power point presentation on what she's been up to as well as explaining how she voted on the issues and why. She also fielded questions from the audience on issues ranging from the farm bill, alternative energy, economic development, 2nd amendment rights, and the possibility of impeaching the president.
Jerry got a call from the Hut 15 minutes before the meeting, asking him to come in at noon, so he didn't stay too long afterwards. All of us here at the Holabird Advocate give a big "Thank you" to Rep. Noem and the Mitchell Chamber for coordinating this well organized event! We look forward to the crackerbarrel next week.
Corrections and Apologies
Previously we reported that DWU did not have classes on Thursday during the wind chill warning. It has since come to our attention that, indeed they did hold class that day! All of us here at the Holabird Advocate regret the error and profusely apologize to the University, and you you, the Readers. Tigers are made out of stronger stuff! Yea to them!
Same Dell, Different Drive by Jerry Hinkle
It sure hasn't been a quiet week Kornfield County. The biggest highlight of the week is that I got by Dell back. I kept the secret of the Dell's dysfunction as long as I could. If you want to read about it, here's the deal. The previous owner told me that if I had any trouble with the Dell, it was guaranteed through August. Guess what happened on Sept 3. Well I had no idea what it was, so when I saved up enough, I took it to Hard Drive Central, here in beautiful downtown Mitchell. The lady at the counter said that they'd get back to me in 5-7 business days. This was last Wednesday. I got a call, later on that afternoon explaining that the hard drive was fried (whatever that means) and needed to be replaced. They just happened to have a used hard drive, which they sold to me for $40, and installed it for a little more than that, and with taxes the total would end up being around $232. After they did all they could do, they said I could pick it up on Monday, So I did!They were able to get most of the memory out of the old drive, the only thing they couldn't save was some of the music files and the Outlook Express, which were the previous owner's anyhow, so no big loss there. I listened to one of the files last night. A freaky chick named Ke$ha. Why would anyone bother to brush their teeth with a bottle? Kids today!One advantage the Dell has over my Apple is that it has MS Word, so if I am somewhere that I can't get online, or at night when have trouble sleeping, I can write about whatever I want until I get tired.
