There are a number of reasons why seniors can be vulnerable to gambling problems. For starters, sen— iors are often catered to by casinos with free bus transportation, free drinks, discounted meals, special re- wards and other prizes as a way to entice them. In addition, many seniors use gambling as a way to distract or es- cape feelings of loneliness, depres- sion or even a chronic health con- dition.

And some may have cogni- tive impairment that interferes with their ability to make s01md decisions. Adding to the problem is that many seniors may not understand addiction, making them less likely to identify a gambling problem. Or they may be confused or embar- rassed that they can’t control their urges to gamble and reluctant to seek help because they think that at their age, they should know better. And even if they recognize that they have a problem, they may not know that help is available or where to get it. You should also know that while there are many gambling options for people to get hooked on today, casino slot machines are far and away the most popular among sen- iors. Slot machines are much more addictive then the old machines of yesteryear with spinning lemons, cherries and melons. Many of to- day’s slot machines offer intense sen- sory stimulation. with large video screens, music and vibrating, er- gonomic chairs. Get Help How can you know if your dad has a gambling problem?

County com ittee Election ballots due Dec. 2 PARK RIVER, N.D. — Voting is now open for the USDA’s Farm Service Agency’s (FSA) Walsh County Committee. It is important that every eligi- ble producer participate in these elections because FSA county committees are a link between the agricultural community and the USDA. The 2019 election in Walsh County will be conducted for Local Administrative Area (LAA)—1. LAA-l consists of the following townships: Kinloss, Sil- vesta, Tiber, Dewey, Adams, Ves— ta, Shepherd, Latona, Sauter, and Perth Townships. County committee members are a critical component of F SA operations. Committees should be comprised of members who re- flect the diversity of producers in- volved in production agriculture in Walsh County. This means that producers representing under- served groups or communities should be on the committee to speak on behalf of their con- stituency. Underserved producers are be- ginning, women and other mi- nority farmers and ranchers and landowners and/or operators who have limited resources. Other mi- nority groups including Native American and Alaska Natives; persons under the poverty level, and persons that have disabilities are also considered underserved. County committee election bal- lots will be mailed to eligible vot- ers on Nov. 4, 2019. The last day to return completed ballots to the Walsh County USDA service cen— ter is Dec. 2, 2019.

The program will be open to everyone and encourages people to think of individuals, organiza~ tions, or communities that they see as most in need when submitting a wish. Choice Bank received over 250 wishes last year and granted a to— tal of 17 ranging from a school li- brary that needed more books to a brand-new electric scooter to give a woman with muscular dystrophy the freedom of movement. Wish- es were accepted through physical wells placed at Choice Bank 10- cations or online for a three-month period. “It was amazing to see an idea that started on a phone call take off with the momentum it did,” said Gaige Dunn, Credit Banker and founding member of the Wishing Well Committee. “Seeing all the wishes unfold and how they im- pacted the lives of the recipients was Inspirlng. This year, Choice Bank’s Wish- ing Well Program will be accept- ing and granting wishes year- round starting November 20. Phys- ical wells will be placed at Choice Bank locations in Belfield, Dick— inson, Ellendale, Grafton, LaM- oure, Medina, Steele, and Wal- halla. Wishes can also be submit- ted at www.bankwithchoice. com/wishing-well. “After such a successful first year, it was important to us to chal— lenge ourselves and take it a step further by expanding the program to reach even more people,” said Tara McFadden, SVP and Chief Compliance Officer. “By contin- uing the Wishing Well Program, we hope to provide a vehicle for members of the community to voice what is important to them and show that our #PeopleFirst commitment means that we’re here for not only our customers, but also the communities we call home.” Choice Bank is a people First fi- nancial services organization that remains locally owned and built around long-term customer rela- tionships, well-rounded products and services, and authentic com- munity banking.
