When the pictures of Trans Asia Flight 235's plunge from the sky into a river first surfaced on Feb. 4, Forrest Carr, author, A Journal of the Crazy Year, got goosebumps. A very similar scene plays out in his novel written last year, and it's not the first incident to become a major news story he seems to have predicted in his novel.
RMA Publicity has arranged several national radio interviews for Carr for the week of Feb. 8-14. On Feb. 10 he was interviewed on radio stations WTIS-AM (Tampa) and KSJE-AM (Albuquerque). The Tampa interview aired live. The one in Albuquerque was taped to air at a later date: Feb. 18.
On Feb. 12, an interview is scheduled on KXYL-AM (Brownwood, TX). In addition, a book review is pending in the Arizona Daily Star.
Carr spent 15 years as a television news director before going on sabbatical in 2013 to try his hand at writing. A Journal of the Crazy Year is his second novel. His first was the crime/newsroom novel Messages.

Robert Helgeson from the Minnesota Office of Higher Education was on the Jordana Green Show on WCCO Radio in Minneapolis on Feb. 3rd. Helgeson discussed financial aid issues, such as how to fill out the FAFSA form, and the agency's education programs aimed at the underprivileged.
He also talked about the Minnesota College Savings Plan, which his office administers. Learn more about the Minnesota College Savings Plan at www.mnsaves.org.
(St. Paul) - When it comes to saving for college, a lot of people keep putting it off. The most common excuses: “I don’t make enough to save money... I have too much debt to put money into savings... and I’ll catch up later when my salary is higher.”
According to Robert Stern, Program Manager for the Minnesota College Savings Plan, it’s time to stop making excuses and act! “When your children are young, time is on your side. The sooner you start saving the better,” he said.
To help get the word out about the benefits offered by Minnesota’s official 529 plan, Stern and Chris McLeod, a tuition financing consultant with TIAA-CREF, the company that manages the plan, will lead workshops on Rasmussen College campuses in February and March.
The first event will be held on Wed., Feb. 25, 2015, from Noon - 1 p.m. at Rasmussen College’s Blaine campus, which is located at 3629 95th Avenue Northeast in Blaine. The second event will be held on Mon., March 2, 2015, from 4 p.m. - 5 p.m. at Rasmussen College’s Eagan campus, which is located at 3500 Federal Drive. Signs will point attendees to the exact event locations when they arrive on the campuses.
At both events, McLeod will share a Powerpoint presentation, explaining the benefits of saving for college with a 529 account and also answer any questions people may have. “Accounts can be opened with as little as $25, and there is no limit to the number of accounts a child can have in his or her name,” he said. “And perhaps the biggest benefit the plan offers is that when the time comes to pay for higher education, all the earnings in the account can be withdrawn tax free, as long as it is a qualified expense.”
In addition to the presentation, the Minnesota College Savings Plan will have a table at both events, where free information and enrollment packets will be available. The Minnesota College Savings Plan is managed by TIAA- CREF Tuition Financing, Inc. (TFI). TFI is part of the TIAA-CREF group of companies, with over $6 billion in combined assets under management.
