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.

Just Rewards?

A rancher’s herd of grazing sheep On a hill and quite content A predator, it lurks below To kill is his intent.

Roger Kline is at the helm The customers, he’ll aid Assistance with computers, For his work, he will be paid.

Then for his gallant effort, Sir Roger was dismissed I read it in the paper I was extremely ….miffed.

The guard dog, he is quick to act Defend the wooly flock Extinguishing the deadly threat He guards around the clock.

A shoddy thief slips in the store Two laptops in his hands Attempting to depart the store, The floor is where he lands.

Ewes and lambs, they are unscathed Praise, it is out poured The handsome guard dog laps it up He gets his just reward.

Roger, he has saved the day With the culprit, he has clashed In strong computer language, I’d say his hard drive crashed.

You may see just where I’m headed, A substance hit the fan. Here’s one story with a flaw, The other with a plan. I will not shop at Best Buy™. The management, they blew it. When drawing a comparison, The guard dog, they would shoot it.

Now, hold that thought for just a bit To Billings, we are heading Right up to the Best Buy™ store This story’s made for spreading.

The gentleman had saved the day He had retained the loot In more computer language, He did not reboot.

Money Talks

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

REASSESSING YOUR RISK TOLERANCE The potential return from any investment can generally be linked to the amount of risk the investor is willing to assume. Finding that balance between the return you desire and the risk you can handle has never been easy. What makes this problem even trickier is that your financial goals - and thus your risk tolerance - inevitably change throughout your life. Therefore, the investment that was right for your goals of yesterday may not be so appropriate today. It is a good idea to review your investments periodically with risk tolerance in mind. If you heed the advice of your financial advisor, you probably already review your account statements on a regular basis to monitor performance and change any investments whose time has passed. Take some extra time when doing this to screen your investments for inappropriate levels of risk. Most people identify risk management with safety of principal. This is true to an extent - a dollar locked in a safety deposit box for 10 years will most likely be worth a dollar when it is taken out. Of course, that dollar is not likely to have as much purchasing power in 10 years as it does today. In other words, locking your money away exposes it to inflation risk. What you gained in stability, you lost in buying power. Like that dollar in the box, some investments are also exposed to inflation risk. There are many other types of risk as well, which apply to different securities. The following are some of the types of investment risk you should keep in mind. • Market risk - the possibility that an investment may lose its value when traded in the financial markets. • Credit risk - the possibility that the issuer of an investment (a corporate bond, for example) may not live up to its financial obligations and cause you to lose your invested capital or not receive expected interest payments. • Interest rate risk - the risk that, if interest rates rise, the price (value) of an investor’s bond holdings and certain stocks will decline. • Reinvestment risk - the possibility that interest rates will fall as a fixedincome investment matures and cause you to be unable to reinvest matured assets at an attractive rate of return. • Liquidity risk - the risk that you will be unable to liquidate an asset (such as real estate, collectibles or thinly traded stocks) when you want and at the price you want. While the variety of risks is substantial, you should not let risk management intimidate you. People participate in the financial markets because the rewards have often enough outweighed the risks. By carefully assessing all the risks an investment offers and periodically reviewing the holdings in your portfolio with your financial advisor in consideration with your risk tolerance, you should be able to find a level of risk that is appropriate for meeting your investment goals.

LAWYERS

A very successful attorney parked his brand new Lexus in front of his office, ready to show it off to his colleagues. As he was getting out, a truck came along too closely and completely tore off the driver’s door. Fortunately, a cop in a police car was close enough to see the accident and pulled up behind the Lexus with his lights flashing. Before the cop had a chance to ask any questions, the attorney started screaming hysterically about how his Lexus, which he had just purchased the day before, was completely ruined and would never be the same, no matter how any car body shop tried to make it new again. After the lawyer finally wound down from his rant, the cop shook his head in disbelief. “I can’t believe how materialistic you lawyers are,” he said. “You are so focused on your possessions that you neglect the most important things in life.” “How can you say such a thing?” asked the lawyer. The cop replied, “Don’t you even realize that your left arm is missing? It was severed when the truck hit you!” “OH, GOSH!!!” screamed the lawyer, “MY Rolex!” For Sale: 1994 Wilson cattle pot. 51 ft. triple axle, good brakes, very nice condition. No longer hauling cattle so it needs to go. (406)383-4440.

“Crap! It’s been a week and the only oily creature for the paparazzi is a stinking garter snake?” My fictitious eco-activist Charlie screamed into his cell phone. “People smash the darn things on the highway without batting an eye. Heck, even Walt Disney can’t make snakes look warm and fuzzy. How about a pelican? Remember Nigel in Finding Nemo? Everyone loves Pelicans. Find one, oil it up and get it in front of the cameras!” “Well sir, we did see some pelicans with brown stains on their wings we assumed was crude oil…but they flew off before we could save them,” came the timid reply from Carl, an imaginary trust funder camped in his Subaru Outback along the Yellowstone River. Had Charlie and Carl been real, this easily could have been their words after the first week of the Great Yellowstone River Oil Spill. A good environmental crisis is money in the bank for leftists and they are milking this Exxon spill for all its worth. Those of us on the right are minor league at media manipulation and we could learn much by watching the pros create public opinion. This story began Friday night, July 1st. The flooding Yellowstone River east of Laurel, apparently ruptured an Exxon 12-inch crude oil pipeline previously buried six feet below the river bed. The pipeline was shut down, but not before spilling 42,000 gallons of crude into the raging torrent of spring run-off. Exactly like storm-chasers in tornado season, Yellowstone County was soon awash with spill-chasers. Wednesday morning, July 6th, the national media flooded the property immediately downstream of the spill—40 acres owned by Montana State Representative Dan Kennedy. Wooded lagoons and back channels scattered across his land showed the black oily sheen of the spill and Representative Kennedy was asked to comment. “Well, Exxon has the experts in dealing with spills like this. They are working and I fully expect them to clean it up and mitigate damages.” Dan stated. Hoping to find a better fit for the hysterical-landowner-with-an-oily-pelican-in-the-background template, the morning news shows clicked off their cameras and Dan’s words were never broadcast. Friday morning the media focused their attention on Montana Governor Schweitzer’s temporary emergency office in the Department of Transportation shop in Billings. In addition to other landowners, the governor’s office asked Bob Castleberry to comment on the impacts he has suffered. Bob is a big man, built more like a logger than a tree-hugger and he has worked the refineries his entire life. Whichever staffer invited Bob to the microphone violated the number one rule when staging a spontaneous press conference: Never let anyone speak their mind, if you don’t first tell them exactly what to say. Bob spoke his mind. “I’ve got three things to say,” Bob boomed. “Number one, no one has suffered more than me. The flood and oil slick hit my house directly and I am going to lose it. Number two, Exxon has been very upfront with me and they are putting us up in a motel and feeding us. They have repeatedly assured us they will make things right. Number three, this whole wreck was caused by state and federal bureaucrats blocking my efforts to maintain the levy which has been on my place for 25 years!” An embarrassing silence swept the room. Suddenly, a man said, “I’ll clap for that,” and he did. The sound of one man clapping in a room stuffed with quietness was deafening. Cameras and recorders were clicked off because Bob’s words didn’t fit the media template any better than Dan’s. As the oil spill headlines flood the airwaves, ask yourself this: “How will the sponsors of the story benefit, if I believe what they are telling me?” Certain things are told for certain reasons. Look at the numbers. With the Yellowstone flowing at 57,000 cubic feet per second, mixing in 42,000 gallons of crude is equal to dumping one gallon of oil in 18,000 gallons of river water. Every 24 hour period, another 4.924 billion gallons of water dilutes the equation further, so finding all 42,000 spilled gallons gets less likely every day. Certainly, there will be impacts but most will not be identified until a drought reveals what’s hidden beneath the murky waters. Time will tell.
