I the two UMP DIRTcarfeatures at Eldora this seaso he’sfiished first ad secod.Swidell started secod to pole-sitter Paul McMaha ad stormed tothe lead to click off the first lap. Hestretched his lead to a domiatig 1.8secods over Joey Saldaa with 12 lapscomplete. But Saldaa started reeligi Swidell over the ext two laps,trimmig that early two-secod deficitto 0.6 secods o lap 14. Swidellever reliquished the lead but worryetered his mid o lap 24 whe JasoSides shredded a tire ad agai o lap28 whe Kraig Kiser’s tire wet flat.At the Kigs Royal i 2011,Swidell was chargig out of tur 4to the sure victory whe he shreddeda tire ad limped past the lie to fiishsecod. O Friday ight, Swidell’sight was slowed whe he cut a tirewith seve laps left to fiish sixth.“I really hated to see those becausethe tires do get pretty warm here.Havig those two yellows back-to-backwe thought we might lose some (tire)pressure,” said Swidell, who holds a11-poit lead over Doy Schatz for theWoO poits lead. “I was thikig aboutthe Kigs Royal ad about ot makigit that last corer.

This Mother’s Day, Think of Lifetime Financial Moves to Help Kids

John M. Yoder, Financial Advisor 
If you’re a mother, you’ll probably get some nice cards and flowers on Mother’s Day. But of course, your greatest gifts are your children themselves. And since you want to see them happy and financially secure,perhaps you can use this Mother’s Day as an opportunity to consider ways to help your children at variousstages of their lives.So, let’s take a look at steps you can take:
When Your Children Are Young
* Teach them to be savers — Encourage young children to put away part of their allowance, or any moneythey receive for household jobs, in a savings account. Offer to match their contributions dollar for dollar.* Help them become investors — Consider giving your children a few shares of stock in companies withwhich they are familiar. By following the movements of their stocks with them, you can explain how the marketswork and how increasing share ownership is one key to helping build wealth.* Contribute to a college savings plan — One of the best things you can do to boost your children’schances of success in life is to help them go to college. You’ve got several good college-savings vehiclesavailable, such as a 529 plans, Coverdell Education Savings Accounts and custodial accounts. Your financialadvisor can help you choose the vehicle that suits your needs and objectives.
When Your Children Enter the Working World
* Encourage IRA contributions — An Individual Retirement Account (IRA) is a great retirement savingsvehicle. As long as your children have earned income, they can contribute to an IRA, so you may want to helpthem “max out” on their contributions each year. While you can’t directly contribute to a child’s IRA, you canwrite a check to your child and encourage him or her to use it for funding an IRA.* Make long-term care arrangements — If you needed long-term care, such as an extended nursinghome stay, and you had inadequate financial preparations, the burden could fall on your children. Now is thetime to consult with your financial advisor to begin preparing for possible long-term care costs.
When Your Children Reach Middle Age
* Communicate your financial situation and estate plans — Don’t leave adult children in the dark as toyour financial information. Share everything you can about how much you own, where you keep your assetsand how you plan to eventually distribute them. By clearly communicating your situation and wishes now, youcan avoid major problems later.* Create a durable power of attorney — By creating a durable power of attorney, you can appoint another person, such as an adult child, to conduct your business and financial affairs if you become physically or mentally incapacitated. Such a move can help reduce stress your children may be feeling, while allowing themto make moves that can help preserve your finances.

It reallbecomes scar whe ou getbehid these people ad this guwas o exceptio. He crossed theceter- lie several times ad Icould’t help but thik about thosepeople that have recetl lost theirlives from head o crashes fromcrossig the ceter-lie.I was glad to see him tur at theext light hopig he would at leastget off that phoe. Somethig isgoig to have to be doe beforesomeoe crashes head o ito abusload of school childre.It sure is amazig what a littlerai will do for the farmers; thecor that was i the groud isreall shootig up ad lookiggood. I thik most of the farmerswill be gettig the remaider of the crops i the fields soo. Thereare a lot of “ifs” associated withfarmig ad rai is certail otthe least of their worries. I guessthat is as good a reaso as a thatwould make a ma chage hismid about goig ito farmig.There are too ma variablesi farmig ad that is oe of thema reaso ot to start farmig.But ou kow what I am sure gladthere are those out there producigall the good food that we eat eachda.
