Mama bears and bullies

By Michelle Beran

My kids have always referred to me as a Mama Bear and I wear that proudly! Mama bears are fierce ... fierce in protecting, fierce in expectations, fierce with stiff justice as consequences of poor decisions. I support anti-bullying programs but believe that there is another piece to this. It is unfortunate but all of us will deal with a bully at some point — on the job, on a committee, even at church. Learning the skills to deal with bullying behavior may be one of the best life skills we can teach.

Protecting your possessions

By Jamie Rathbun

If you were asked to make a list of your possessions — clothing, household furnishings and appliances, gardening and automotive equipment, jewelry, etc. — could you do it? It’s not easy to do this from memory. But if your house, apartment, or business was destroyed by fire or damaged by a tornado, you would need to complete such a list to be compensated by your insurance company.

No one thinks that it will happen to them, but the wildfires of recent weeks prove that you can never be too prepared. Home or business loss can happen anytime.
