news_l6.gif SERTOMAN OF THE DAY: 

Mike Magee was born 1939 in Houston but grew up in Chicago starting at about age 2. He can remember looking out his window and seeing the Troop Trains. He went to school in the Chicago area, then came out to C.U. in 1957, got a degree in marketing, then went back to Chicago and sold shoes for 9 years with the Florshiem Shoe Co. He liked Denver so well he came back and tried selling shoes here. He got tired of the flying and driving back and forth with the shoe business so he got into real estate back in 1972, then later with his wife, Barb.

Mike and Barb have been happily married 19 years total. They have a daughter 45 and a son 45. Barb had 2 daughters before they met and now, there is a combined total of 6 grandkids. Mike retired about 11 years ago so they bought a sail boat and sailed around the Gulf and Atlantic for several years, enjoying it very much. They ended up selling the boat and returning to Colorado.

Mike has no military, something about having kids at the right time.

Mike is a past president of 1993/94 and has a Gold coat, with the help of Sam and a couple other members. Mabe brought him into the club.


Program:  John Vierthaler did the honors today, introducing Karen MaGee. He put an end to all rumors by saying they are "boy friend-girl friend". (good job, John) Karen was raised in Tennessee and has a BS in Nursing from TN. She was an RN for 8 years, then worked for a pharmaceutical company for 25 years. She is here today to talk to us about alcoholism. ( who told her we needed to hear this?)

Alcoholism is a disease that takes hold of the brain. Like diabetes, hypertension and depression, alcoholism is a clinically recognized disease. Willpower can't cure diabetes or high blood pressure, so why think that willpower along can cure alcoholism?

The brain is intimately involved in the pleasurable and rewarding effects of alcohol and the inability to control one's drinking. The Cortex Region (the part in front) is responsible for conscious decision-making. The Limbic Region (in the lower region of the brain) is involved in pleasure and reinforcement. Combining medications and counseling addresses these two regions to give you the best chance for success. Ask you doctor about medical treatment options as well as counseling strategies for alcoholism.

Take the CAGE assessment:
Have you ever felt you ought to Cut down on your drinking?
Have people Annoyed you by criticizing your drinking?
Have you ever felt bad or Guilty about your drinking?
Have you ever had a drink first thing in the morning to steady your nerves or to get rid of a hangover (Eye Opener)?

If you answer yes to two or more of these questions, you may have a problem with alcohol. Talk to your healthcare team about these results and available treatment options.

Do you know what the relationship is between your two eyes?
They blink together, they move together, they cry together, they see things together and they sleep together, BUT THEY NEVER SEE EACH OTHER... that's what friendship is.




AT&T fired President John Walter after nine months, saying he lacked intellectual leadership.
He received a $26 million severance package. Perhaps it's not Walter who's lacking intelligence.

Police in Oakland, CA spent two hours attempting to subdue a gunman who had barricaded himself inside his home.
After firing ten tear gas canisters, officers discovered that the man was standing beside them in the police line, shouting, 'Please come out and give yourself up.'

An Illinois man, pretending to have a gun, kidnapped a motorist and forced him to drive to two different automated teller machines, wherein the kidnapper proceeded to withdraw money from his own bank accounts.

A man walked into a Topeka, Kansas Kwik Stop and asked for all the money in the cash drawer.
Apparently, the take was too small, so he tied up the store clerk and worked the counter himself for three hours until police showed up and grabbed him.

Police in Los Angeles had good luck with a robbery suspect who just couldn't control himself during a lineup. When detectives asked each man in the lineup to repeat the words:
'Give me all your money or I'll shoot', the man shouted, 'that's not what I said!'

A man spoke frantically into the phone: 'My wife is pregnant and her contractions are only two minutes apart'. 'Is this her first child?' the doctor asked. 'No!' the man shouted, 'This is her husband!'

In Modesto, CA, Steven Richard King was arrested for trying to hold up a Bank of America branch without a weapon.  King used a thumb and a finger to simulate a gun. Unfortunately, he failed to keep his hand in his pocket.

Last summer, down on Lake Isabella, located in the high desert, an hour east of Bakersfield, CA, some folks, new to boating, were having a problem. No matter how hard they tried, they couldn't get their brand new 22 foot boat, going.
It was very sluggish in almost every maneuver, no matter how much power they applied.
After about an hour of trying to make it go, they putted into a nearby marina, thinking someone there may be able to tell them what was wrong.
A thorough topside check revealed everything in perfect working condition
The engine ran fine, the out-drive went up and down, and the propeller was the correct size and pitch.
So, one of the marina guys jumped in the water to check underneath..
He came up choking on water, he was laughing so hard.
Under the boat, still strapped securely in place, was the trailer!

We all know last week was Sturgis Week.
Will the people in this picture please identify yourself?
