Hello Hillsboro: It all adds up for Erwin sale
Placeholder Image

Congratulations to Charlie and Pat Erwin, who have sold their accounting business, Erwin LTD, to TNT Tax & Accounting after keeping track of all those important numbers for many Hillsboro folks.

They have successfully served business owners and individuals for many years while living here on two separate occasions.

Now, here’s the good news for their nervous clients, including us.

Charlie is being retained by TNT and will be working in the same office building, with the same desk, the same phone number, the same solid knowledge, and the same friendly advice.

I always thanked Charlie for keeping us out of jail after sending Uncle Sam his ill-gotten gains every year! I never lost any sleep over it, just as soon as all the data was in Charlie’s hands.

Actually, I don’t think Charlie ever did, either!


You just have to watch out for those old Navy guys. This “true story” proves the point!

The rain was pouring, and there was a big puddle in front of the local pub just outside the McCord Air Force Base gate.

A ragged old naval aviator, wearing his winged ball cap, was standing near the edge with a fishing rod, his line in the puddle.

A curious, young fighter pilot stopped and asked what he was doing.

“Fishing,” the old guy simply replied.

“Poor old fool,” the Air Force officer thought to himself, and he invited the elderly naval aviator into the pub for a drink.

He then felt like he should start some conversation while they were sipping their whiskey, so the pilot asked, “And, how many have you caught?”

“You’re the eighth,” the old Navy vet answered!


Just a reminder that Monday, Dec. 8, is the deadline to turn in orders for a great selection of Hillsboro Tigers clothing, sponsored by the Sophomore Class.

There is plenty of “school spirit” clothing available, including screen printed and embroidered items.
