news_l6.gif SERTOMAN OF THE DAY: 

Tommy (Tooth) Fry entertained us with the history of Miles City, Montana where he was born. For those not familiar with the founding of Miles City, here is a brief history: Miles City Montana got its start when Colonel (later General) Nelson A. Miles was ordered to build a cantonment where the Tongue River flowed into the Yellowstone. The Colonel and his men were sent in response to the Battle of the Little Big Horn, to protect settlers and freight wagons as they passed through the fertile Yellowstone valley. The cantonment was constructed in the fall of 1876 and by spring, a town had sprung up two miles away to provide rest and recreation for the soldiers. (read more at: )

Tom was born in 1933, 76 years ago. A product of the sturdy Custer County High School graduating in 1951 , Tommy moved on to Carleton College graduating in 1954, then to Columbia Dental School earning his Dental tools in 1958, followed by two years in the Army (1958-1960) defending the Great Northwest where not a single dental stool was destroyed. Kay agreed to marry Tom in ‘58, four days after Tom graduated from Columbia Dental School. Over the years, they have gained 3 kids and 2 grandkids. They will have been married 51 years this June, 2009.

Tommy says he came to Denver in 1960 and practiced dentistry on Federal ‘til the flood, then at the corner of Broadway and Arapahoe beginning in 1970. Though he practiced, he apparently didn’t get the hang of it and retired in ‘96. Tom was brought into the club by Bob Gallagher in 1965/66 and the club has benefited immensely. Tommy forgot to tell us of his encounter with a train on the western slope. Tommy won and the train has never been the same since.


Program:   Scott introduced Dr. David Kelsall, son of our long time member, Dr. Howie Kelsall.
David C. Kelsall, MD, is Medical Director of the CNI Center for Hearing and the CNI Rocky Mountain Cochlear Implant Center (RMCIC) at the Colorado Neurological Institute (CNI).

Dr. Kelsall gave a presentation about Colorado Neurological Institute (CNI) Center for Hearing. The Mission of the Colorado Neurological Institute (CNI) is to enhance the delivery of personalized, comprehensive and state-of-the-art care to patients with neurological conditions through coordinated patient care, education, research and outreach activities. CNI is the largest, most comprehensive neuroscience center in the Rocky Mountain region. Integrated, multi-disciplinary teams of neuroscientists provide comprehensive care for adults with neurological disorders and adults and children with hearing loss and ear disease. There are over 28 million Americans that have some degree of hearing loss.

By 2030, it is estimated to reach 78 million. Noise-induced hearing loss is the most common hidden disability today, 10 million in the U.S. The amount of environmental noise has doubled each decade for the past 20 years. 5.2 million children in the U.S. between 6 and 19 have some degree of noise induced hearing loss.
iPod users watch out, >90 million iPods are on the market, with an output of 115-120db. 7 minutes at this level causes permanent irreversible damage. They have such high quality sound that even at high levels, the audio still sounds good, compared to older equipment like the Sony Walkman and others. And, the iBuds do not block background noise so you tend to turn the volume up louder.

Dr. Kelsall and his colleges travel to many different countries to treat all kinds of disorders of the ear. Hearing loss, dizziness, tinnitus, facial nerve disorders, tumors, chronic infections, cholesteatomas and cochlear implants. CNI raises monies and the manufactures of the cochlear implants donate a few implants each year.
This has only been a small part of what Dr. Kelsall and CNI do. For more information, goto   or call (303) 788-4010 Also, see Dr. Kelsall’s practice at Rocky Mountain ear Center, PC    (303) 783-9220

Some of you may be wondering what Judge Roy Moore has been doing since he was removed from the bench for refusing to remove the Ten Commandments from his courtroom wall.

The following is a poem written by Judge Roy Moore from Alabama . Judge Moore was sued by the ACLU for displaying the Ten commandments in his courtroom foyer. He has been stripped of his judgeship and now they are trying to strip his right to practice law in Alabama ! The judge's poem sums it up quite well.

America the beautiful,
Or so you used to be.
Land of the Pilgrims' pride;
I'm glad they'll never see.

Babies piled in dumpsters,
Abortion on demand,
Oh, sweet land of liberty;
Your house is on the sand.

Our children wander aimlessly
Poisoned by cocaine
Choosing to indulge their lusts,
When God has said abstain

From sea to shining sea,
Our Nation turns away
From the teaching of God's love
And a need to always pray

We've kept God in our
how callous we have grown.
When earth is but His footstool,
And Heaven is His throne.

We've voted in a government
that's rotting at the core,
Appointing Godless Judges ;
Who throw reason out the door,

Too soft to place a killer
In a well deserved tomb,
But brave enough to kill a baby
Before he leaves the womb.

You think that God's not
that our land's a moral slum?
How much longer will He wait
Before His judgment comes?

How are we to face our God,
From Whom we cannot hide?
What then is left for us to do,
But stem this evil tide?

If we who are His children,
Will humbly turn and pray;
Seek His holy face
And mend our evil way:

Then God will hear from Heaven;
And forgive us of our sins,
He'll heal our sickly land
And those who live within.

But, America the Beautiful,
If you don't - then you will see,
A sad but Holy God
Withdraw His hand from Thee..

~~Judge Roy Moore~~

This says it all. May we all forward this message and offer our prayers for Judge Moore to be blessed and for America to wake up and realize what we need to do to keep OUR� America the Beautiful..

Pass this on and let's lift Judge Moore up in Prayer. He has stood firm and needs our support.
