Kathleen Dowling spends her days working at a Chicago nonprofit agency dedicated to lifting men and women out of poverty through job training. It's a job she loves, and it pays well, especially for the nonprofit sector. Last year, she made $53,205, but the 48-year-old single woman spends many nights worrying about her financial future. In a letter requesting a Money Makeover, Dowling said she feels panic every time she thinks about turning 50. "I sense that there are only a few steps between where I am currently and sheer poverty," Dowling wrote to Your Money editors.

OVERSPENDING, like overeating, seems inevitable at holiday time. We plan, we set limits. Then we trample all over them when the pressure is on to deliver a child's must-have toy or a luxury that tells our parents we made it after all. It's difficult to truly figure out how much is too much because it's so easy to put it on credit. Those "little" monthly payments can seem trivial compared with the joy a kid gets from a cool gift, but they come back to haunt you in the form of huge interest costs throughout the year.

FLORENCE RIEFLE BAHR captured some striking images in her day. The Baltimore-born artist drew courtroom sketches of the Catonsville Nine, H. Rap Brown and former Gov. Marvin Mandel, and she painted beautiful watercolor scenes of Baltimore rowhouses from generations ago. At 88, she had ceased working every day, says a daughter, but she still turned out paintings and sketches from her wooden house on Old Lawyers Hill in Elkridge.It should have come as no surprise that Mrs. Bahr, who died in a fire Monday, was still going nearly seven decades after graduating with honors from the Maryland Institute, College of Art, 63 years after her first Baltimore Museum of Art exhibit.

Two daughters sorted through their mother's paintings and sketchbooks -- their brown, brittle pages blackened with soot, their titles smeared by water -- only yards from a smoldering Elkridge home.The daughters were trying to salvage a life's work of art.Their mother, Florence Riefle Bahr, 88, whose sketches, watercolors and prints chronicled some of history's most dramatic moments as well as her own joys and sorrows, died yesterday morning when her split-level home was consumed by a two-alarm fire.

Once there were two men, living in bordering states. One was a horse farmer, the other an assistant professor who used to be a railroad worker.The men were strangers, yet their imaginations seemed to run on parallel tracks. In the early 1990s, each began to write a story that had been tugging at him for some time. The stories were Civil War stories, more or less, set in their home states, North Carolina and Tennessee.The two men finished their books and found publishers. The novels appeared, one right after the other, in the spring of this year.
