It’s that time of the year again – Stampede Week – when some of us embrace the chance to show off our towns and enjoy some good ol’ rodeo action, a thrilling horse race with some incredibly brave riders, impressive dancers in colorful regalia at the powwow, carnival rides that push us to our limits and entertainment galore … and then some of us grumble at the mass influx of thousands of people into our small community and hole up until the event blows over.

When my friend Marsha was ready for advanced training, she chose bookkeeping and finished a year of the training.
