news_l6.gif SERTOMAN OF THE DAY: 

Carl Duncan complimented the club for such a large turnout for his SOD presentation.

The birth of Carl Duncan in 1930, like Fred Downs, ushered in the Great Depression. Duncan's parents were school teachers who maintained employment during this era in small rural schools. They met and were married in Burlington. Carl was born in 1930 in Alamosa and 2 weeks later, the family moved to Cortez and was there first 6 years of his life. The family moved to the coal mining community of Oak Creek in 1936 where the main form of entertainment was tackle football with or without pads.

In 1940 they relocated to Avondale, a gentle farm community 15 miles east of Pueblo on the Arkansas River where the main form of entertainment was softball. Carl mentioned that per capital, Avondale is the murder capital of the U.S. with 2 murders and a population of 350. In playing softball, Duncan's first painful learning experience was to catch a fly ball with the hands rather than in the chest like a football. Duncan obtained a BA degree from the Univ. of Colorado and was drafted during the Korean War into the 101st Air Borne, was a Company Clerk and was sent to Germany because he could speak the language.

Carl recovered from the warped mentality instilled by the liberals at CU and obtained an MBA degree form DU and became a CPA, using the GI bill. In 1962 he settled in Denver and was unleashed as a CPA on an unsuspecting public. Carl was brought into the club by Steve Bolyard.

One procedure is Manipulation Under Anesthesia for Pain (MUA). This procedure is a non-invasive procedure increasingly offered for acute and chronic conditions, including: neck pain, back pain, joint pain, muscle spasm, shortened muscles, fibrous adhesions and long term pain syndromes. It is generally considered safe and is utilized to treat pain arising from the cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine as well as the sacroiliac and pelvic regions.

Prior to treatment, protocols of diagnostic testing should document the nature of the diagnosis, support the need for treatment and eliminate questions of psychosocial factors that can influence pain responses. In addition to X-ray, MRI scan or CT scan, a musculoskeletal sonogram or nerve conduction velocity test may be ordered. 303 694-9759

Just think of the money we could save the taxpayers.  ;)

Dear Mr.President,

Patriotic retirement:

There are about 40 million people over 50 in the work force. Pay them $1 million apiece severance, with the following stipulations:
1) They leave their jobs immediately...... Forty million job openings - Unemployment fixed

2) They buy NEW AMERICAN cars............. Forty million cars ordered - Auto Industry fixed.

3) They either...................... buy a house or pay off their mortgage - Housing Crisis fixed.

It would only cost $40,000,000,000,000.00   Heck, we are almost there now.


At five minutes and six seconds after 4 AM on the 8th of July this year, the time and date will be 04:05:06 07/08/09. This will never happen again.
