By Jamie Leither, Coach Monday and Tuesday, June 21 and 22, the Kimball football pro- gram had the coaching staff of Ridgewater Community College come and share some of their drills with our players. There were 48 players from grades 7-12 who attended this camp. The players received a lot of personal instruc- tion from the staff. Many new play- ers to the program took advantage of this opportunity to get to know their teammates and learn what positions they might like to try in the fall. The varsity players took this time to get themselves ready for the trip that the team was taking to Duluth for a team camp to scrimmage four other teams. The young men are working hard in the weight room, passing scrimmages, and other camps to make themselves bet- ter for the upcoming season.

Hew 'Mymoney' website can help you with your money By Steven Thayer, District Manager There's good news for Ameri- cans who want help getting a han- dle on their finances.

The new site has enhanced interactive features and provides more resources to Americans seeking information that can help with their personal financial deci- sions. The new <> website creates an online point of access to financial informa- tion from the 21 federal agencies, departments, and bureaus, includ- ing Social Security, that comprise the Financial Literacy and Educa- tion Commission. Visitors to the site can find information about how to plan, financially, for a host of life events, such as the birth or adoption of a child, home own- ership, or retirement. Users also can find information targeted to their personal or professional situ- ation. For instance, the site offers resources for teachers, military service members, women, parents, youth, and employers. The site also provides money management tools including a financial savings calculator, worksheets for estab- lishing a household budget, and a college preparation checklist. The site also is available in Spanish. The effort to make the website as helpful and useful to Americans will be ongoing, with improve- ments expected to continue.
