Ofﬁce Newsletter for MOC & MPC Employees in Findlay, Ohio • December 14, 2007 Vol. 54 No. 12 Eventually, Asa attended April Coble’s waterskiing school in North Carolina and also joined the Glass City Waterski Riding the Wake Club out of Toledo a couple of years ago. Connecting with a group of people who shared his passion also introduced him to participating in both competitions and waterski shows and also teaching others to ski, which he says he loves. As a result, he and a friend have also founded their own waterskiing club, renting a highway pond they have nicknamed Lake Swerve, where Asa can be found on many evenings and weekends. Although Asa has tried other forms of waterskiing, such as knee boarding, he says he enjoys slalom the most. “I guess it’s the challenge of it,” he says. “It’s just a very enjoyable feeling to get through the course.” In order to qualify for the national competition, Asa says you have to compete in several state tournaments and end up in ﬁrst or second place in terms of total points. Last year, he ended in second place in Indiana and represented Team Asa Bour (IT Integrator, Reﬁnery Applications) laughingly Indiana at nationals. This year, he says more competitions describes his favorite hobby as playing tug of war with a located in Ohio will hopefully allow him to vie for a spot on 3,500-pound boat. In October, Asa placed eighth in the Team Ohio. Men’s Slalom 1st Class at the INT U.S. waterskiing championships held in Zachary, Louisiana. In the slalom competition, the boat runs a straight line through a course of staggered buoys, with both an open- ing gate and an ending gate. The skier’s objective is to get around each buoy and also through the gates on both ends. With the boat reaching a maximum of 34 mph in Slalom 1st Just qualifying for nationals was an experience he says Class and the skier reaching speeds over 45 mph to make he’ll never forget. “It was a thrill for me just to be there, but the turns, it only takes about 17 seconds to complete the especially to be able to rub elbows with all the profession- course.

A skier is allowed to bring his own handle and his own Growing up in Tifﬁn, Ohio, Asa says he began waterskiing slalom ski, but the boat, the boat driver and the rope are when he was around ﬁve years old on the Sandusky River, provided at the national competition.

Of course, you also don’t learn if you never crash.” It’s December in Ohio, of course, so waterskiing isn’t on most people’s minds. For Asa, it’s time to cross train, which he does through both a workout regimen and other sports when it comes to the various software and how and when such as snow skiing. However, when the water tempera- students should learn to use them.

Generally, the waterskiing both the theory and today’s leading software at the same season in Ohio kicks off in April and runs into October. time. These programs are very complex, and students really can’t learn them entirely on their own. It’s important, “I certainly hope to make nationals again next year,” he because when they get out into the job market they are adds. “Waterskiing is a great sport for all ages. I saw expected to be able to use them.” people at nationals in their 70s and also little kids as young as four. As we like to say, ‘Ski you later.’” Tom says another fringe beneﬁt of the teaching assignment is that it keeps him up-to-date on the burgeoning changes in his own industry. “I’m always learning myself,” he admits. “One night when I was preparing a lesson, I learned some- thing about working in PhotoShop that I had never known. So it really has been a good experience both professionally as well as personally. I also feel good that we are helping support the community.

Tools For Reaching Higher Financial Goals In 2008! Financial experts use a technique called “Laddering” to manage Certiﬁcate of Deposit (CD) portfolios. The tech- nique derives from having CDs that range from the low end (12 months) to the high end (60 months). By investing your funds evenly over each of these categories, you always have 1/5th of your investment coming due each year. TERM INVESTMENT APY 12 Months $500 4.40%* 24 Months $500 4.45%* 36 Months $500 4.50%* 48 Months $500 4.55%* 60 Months $500 4.60%* Total Investment $2,500 AVERAGE APR 4.50% *Rates as of November 1, 2007 Here’s where that ladder analogy comes in – each year is like a “rung” on a ladder. For example, when the 12-month CD matures, you reinvest it in a 60-month CD. And as the other CDs mature you reinvest them in a 60 month CD as well.
