Bearlodge Writers On Monday, October 11, several members of Bearlodge Writers, a Sundance-based writers support and critique group, entertained Jennifer Johnson for lunch at the Aro Restaurant in Sundance. Johnson is the first of two winners of the 2004 Devils Tower National Monument Writing Residency Program to arrive at the Tower for a week of uninterrupted writing. Johnson, a graduate student in the Master of Fine Arts Creative Writing program at the University of Minnesota, learned about the competition from a fellow student who was one of one of last year's winners. By another coincidence, the second 2004 winner also studies at the University of Minnesota and is enrolled in the same creative writing program. The United States National Park Service sponsors residency programs in a variety of artistic areas at various national parks and monuments. The Devils Tower program offers writers one week of modest housing at the monument and a travel stipend of $100, provided by the Devils Tower Natural History Association. The goal is to allow the writer an inspiring and secluded working environment. More infor- marion can be obtained from Christine Czazasty, Chief of Interpretation, Devils Tower National Monu- ment, P. O. Box 10, Devils Tower, WY 82714 or at www.nps.gov/deto/writersprogram.htm. Bearlodge Writers welcomes members from throughout Crook and Campbell Counties and also from Spearfish, Sturgis and Rapid City, SD. The group has for several years juried writing submissions from throughout the United States for the Devils Tower residency program, naming two winners and two alternates each year. The group meets at noon the first Tuesday of each month, and at 6:30 p.m. the third Tuesday, at the Crook County Library in Sundance. Common Sense By Daun Martin, Family Resource Management Educator The Credit When Credit is Due weekend workshop has been scheduled for Saturday, 2E Sunday, February 27, 2005. It will be held either in Sundance or Moorcroft. Location is to be later. Discussions with Sundance State Bank, Hulett National Bank, and Pinnacle Bank about underwriting most of the cost of this valuable class have been very promising. A number of scholarships will be offered to individuals toward the $50 enrollment fee. Call University of Cooperative Extension in Crook County (283-I 192) to find out more about the class or to enroll. The Buck Stops Here In the first chapter of Credit When Credit is Due, the author Paul Strassels states "you have acknowledge ... it is your responsibility, and yours alone, to see to it that you pay all of your bills, time, in full, with checks that don~ bounce." That is a huge directive because LIFE HAPPENS. When were a child-parents, teachers, preachers, and friends were often willing to accept your excuses you were young and inexperienced. Now that you are an adult you have found that after the f'n-st cation for a missed or late payment, creditors, landlords, and utility companies just aren't and may proceed with the consequences promised when you entered into an agreement with them. One of the financial management activities that Cooperative Extension provides for youth in the is "The Allowance Game" where children are given an allowance of 20 M & M's which they can spend any of the categories on the game board. Of course it is recommended that they pay themselves (savings). After the first round of budgeting the kids then draw a ~ or WOW card because as they told =Life Happens." (Some examples of a Pow card are "Your bike tire sprung a lead-pay $5 or "You didn't follow the rules in class and have to stay after school and miss your first hour $7.) Adults need to be prepared to have the Pows of life happen to them and have money set aside for blown radiator, the unexpected operation, or the loss of overtime pay. Banks or landlords, utility nies and other creditors may feel bad when they have to take action against you, but they need to be so they can keep their businesses going successfully. What can one do if s/he is hit by a number of POW8 and the reserve fund is used up? First, call creditor to alert him/her that there is a problem. away if you i maore it. Have a plan before you call about what you can do until you are able to yourself current. When there =there isn~ enough money for the month" one has to do one of two I. Decrease spending 2. Increase income Most people that come to Cooperative Extension Services for help with family financial have cut spending to the bare bones. In looking at the figures it's hard to see where else spending be cut and sriU keep the family safe and healthy. Option #2 then becomes the course of action. It is to feel defeated when one is doing everything s/he can to keep expenses down. when one feels whelmed by money matters, it may be nearly impossible to brainstorm creatively about additional centers." Ask yourself what you are passionate about. Rip off a big piece of butcher paper and in the middle write "ways to bring in more money" and circle that-to the side write things you enjoy doing and Put it in a place in your home that you and your family pass often. At the top put your initials and take down day. Invite your family and friends to add their brainstorms. To paraphrase a recent speaker a UWYO Cooperative Extension meeting "the power of we is far greater than the power of me." Let who know you well help you figure out how to put yourself and your family on a stronger financial You will gain peace of mind when you have done something to ensure that you are meeting commitments. The financial buck really does stop with you.
