calls out instructions to other firefighters as they back-
burn forest fuel to protect structures while fighting the
First Creek Fire, Tuesday near Chelan, Wash. Wildfires are
putting such a strain on the nation’s firefighting resourc-

international help to beat back scores of blazes burning
uncontrolled throughout the dry West.

“Helping People Live Well”
1. If you choose to gamble, do so
for entertainment purposes- If your
gambling is no longer an enjoyable
activity then ask yourself why you are still
“playing”?
2.  Treat the money you lose as the cost of
your entertainment- Treat any winnings as a
bonus.
3.  Set a dollar limit and stick to it- Decide
before you go not only what you can “afford”
to lose, but how much you want to spend. Do
not change your mind after losing.
4.  Set a time limit and stick to it- Decide how
much of your time you want to allow for
gambling. Leave when you reach the time
limit whether you are winning or losing.
