COWBOY POETRY BY H. FRED LIESE Fred Liese makes his home at the edge of Black Coulee near Turner, Montana. Raised on the Big Flat, he finds plenty of “inspiration” in the people and things around him every day, and Fred’s brand of entertainment has earned him a large following throughout the US and Canada.

She Nearly Wept She straightened out the tangled sheets. She stared off into space. Incapable to function, Her heart begins to race.

Within a fleeting moment, There was strong reliance Quickly it unraveled It’s a cold and dark defiance.

Communication, it had stalled. That was the final try. Exhausting all her efforts, There was no reply.

Frustration must be nullified. No need for preparation. Now void of any sign, It’s time for separation.

For years, they’d been together. Letters, they did share. Now with disconnect, There’s silence and despair.

Here’s the grand finale. There’s nothing to erase. This day has come too soon. Now boldly, she will face.

No notice posted in advance. No writing on the wall. Clearly there’s no evidence, There was no final call.

Then the sun began to shine. It replaced the darkened winter. Then quickly she resolved, ….”I’ll buy a new printer.”

An endless wealth of multi color Now void of all the hue Now alone, all stark and blank, What is she to do?

Money Talks

By guest contributor Greg Dugdale of Raymond James Financial Services, Inc. Havre, Montana

Your Personal asset allocation

Too many individual investors blur the distinction between “saving” and “investing.” “Saving” is setting money aside in a secure location for a certain need or desire. “Investing” entails putting money to work towards achieving a financial goal with the possibility of generating return. As an investor, it is of utmost importance to be able to answer certain fundamental questions: Will your current investment portfolio be able to meet both short- and long-term investment objectives? Is your current portfolio correctly geared to your individual level of tolerance for risk? One sound way to answer these questions is by utilizing asset allocation -- a disciplined, objective investment game plan that will help you meet your financial goals. Many financial professionals believe the asset allocation decision is the most important step in the investment process. To be most effective, a personal asset allocation model should be tailored to your particular goals and needs. A simple asset allocation model for an individual investor generally requires a portfolio of assets divided into three categories -- stocks, bonds and cash. Each is assigned a fixed percentage. Based on this strategy, a conservative portfolio would generally contain more bonds and cash than stocks. A more aggressive portfolio might contain a higher percentage of stocks. Since diversification of assets is generally recognized as a way to potentially reduce and manage risk in a portfolio, the mix of assets in your allocation model should reflect your preferred level of risk. Considerations such as current spending requirements, tax implications and inflation-adjusted return may also be addressed through the asset allocation process. Asset allocation is flexible and revolves around personal needs. However, professional financial advisors have generally found that investors at various age levels tend to be best served by adopting allocation models that address the needs of their “life-cycle phase”. In most cases, the longer your investment time horizon, the more aggressive your investment strategy might be. For example, investors in their 30s and 40s tend to have several needs and concerns in common (e.g., children, new home, college education, retirement planning). To address these concerns, an asset allocation plan that emphasizes stocks is often recommended because they historically have provided superior returns over time. Even though past performance may not be indicative of future results. At the other end of the spectrum are investors who are close to or who have entered into retirement. Their goal might include providing enough income to maintain a lifestyle, or growth of their capital to ensure that they do not outlive their assets. For these investors an above-average holding in bonds may be recommended. Obviously, these are guidelines. When implementing as asset allocation strategy, the various percentages allocated to stocks, bonds and cash should be assessed on a personal basis and reassessed annually. Be sure to check with your financial advisor regularly on your asset allocation strategy. Asset allocation and diversification do not guarantee a profit or protect against a loss.

A nimAl AcAdemics

A mini guide to animal health

- by Dr. Roger Baxter

THE DUCK IS DEAD

A woman brought a very limp duck into a veterinary surgeon. As she laid her pet on the table, the vet pulled out his stethoscope and listened to the bird’s chest. After a moment or two, the vet shook his head sadly and said, “I’m sorry. Your duck, Cuddles, has passed away.” The distressed woman wailed, “Are you sure?” “Yes, I am sure. The duck is dead,” replied the vet. “How can you be so sure?” she protested. “I mean you haven’t done any testing on him or anything. He might just be in a coma or something.” The vet rolled his eyes, turned around and left the room. He returned a few minutes later with a black Labrador Retriever. As the duck’s owner looked on in amazement, the dog stood on his hind legs, put his front paws on the examination table and sniffed the duck from top to bottom. He then looked up at the vet with sad eyes and shook his head.

The vet patted the dog on the head and took it out of the room. A few minutes later he returned with a cat. The cat jumped on the table and also delicately sniffed the bird from head to foot. The cat sat back on its haunches, shook its head, meowed softly and strolled out of the room. The vet looked at the woman and said,“I’m sorry, but as I said, this is most definitely, 100% certifiably, a dead duck. The vet turned to his computer terminal, hit a few keys and produced a bill, which he handed to the woman. The duck’s owner, still in shock, took the bill. “$250?” she cried. “$250 just to tell me my duck is dead?” The vet shrugged, “I’m sorry. If you had just taken my word for it, the bill would have been $20, but with the Lab Report and the Cat Scan, it’s now $250.”

BLESSED MONTANA

On the sixth day, God turned to the Archangel Gabriel and said, “Today, I am going to create a land called Montana. It will be a land of outstanding natural beauty; a land of beautiful lakes, each one full of fish. It shall have tall majestic pines, peacefully flowing rivers, landscapes full of buffalo, tall grass and eagles; beautiful blue skies, forests full of bear, elk and moose, rich farmland and fair people.” God continued, “I shall make the land rich in resources so as to make the inhabitants prosper and they shall be known as a most friendly people, people who practice being nice every day.” “But Lord,” asked Gabriel. “Don’t you think you are being too generous to these Montana people?” “Not really,” replied God. “Just wait and see the winters I am going to give them.”

FROM THE MARKETING TOOLBOX: Do More With Less

by Tricia Kimmel

Studies show that in spite of Wall Street’s claim that this recession is soon to be just a painful memory, John Q. Public isn’t as convinced. NielsenWire, in an article dated April 2, 2010 states that “the downward trend of consumers shopping less hit a new low in February 2010, reporting a 4% year-over-year decline in monthly alloutlet shopping trips. And while per trip shopping basket rings began to pick up during and after the holidays, February remained static with a 1% increase compared to last year.” So, with less overall store traffic, when you do get a customer through your door, how can you keep them there? Consider these three points, in this order: 1. Keep ‘em happy. 2. Make ‘em happy. (Yes, I know this seems backward, but it’s easier to keep a customer than to get a new one.) 3. Stand out from the crowd. Keep ‘em happy: You want your current customers to be satisfied when they walk out the door. Keep them coming back with incentives or rewards programs that encourage shopping frequency. Don’t skimp on customer service, and also do some research about your customers. What generation do they belong to, and GO ONLINE TODAY what makes them want to shop with and subscribe to our you? Focus on that to make their business FREE marketing e-newsletter at www.Kimmel-Kreations.com. experience with you better. What kind of Get useful tips like the ones in value do they perceive when doing business “Marketing Toolbox” plus more great ideas every week! with you? Make ‘em happy: Entice some new faces through your door with promotional offers, freebies, etc. Then be sure you can “deliver the goods”, so to speak. Be authentic in your marketing so your new customers know what to expect, then give that to them. Stand out from the crowd: We’ve written several articles on how to create your own niche in the market, but you need to clarify what exactly it is that makes you different from your competition. No two businesses are exactly alike - they have different employees, different hours, a different storefront; the list goes on. When your customers are in your store, you want them to experience the difference, literally. And when they do, you can bet they’ll tell someone. Work this to your advantage. The three things listed here could be considered the keys to success in any economy. Marketing is a big piece of the pie, but when your marketing works to bring in the customers, be sure you’re prepared for the next part of the process - a happy customer. Are you unsure of how to market your business? Do you run out of time to market because you’re too busy running your business?
