He also was fined for advertising and paid his $1. Table one fined for guests, although it was mentioned that Randy suggested the guests sit at that table….passed.

news_l6.gif SERTOMAN OF THE DAY: 

Tim Pollak, with a PhD on the wall, brought us up to date on his life story. Tim was born Sep. 6, 1945 on the south side of Chicago. Probably while still in the hospital, their apartment caught on fire and the family moved to the Rogers Park area of Chicago. When in first grade, they moved to Evanston and he went through all grades there. The high school was so large, he went to “East Hall” high school in Evanston.


At 15, he was active in youth groups, debating life. They decided there was no universal purpose to human life. Because of that, he decided to go into clinical psychology. He attended Antioch College and their “cooperative plan of education (classes for one quarter then work in the field for a quarter). He worked in Phoenix, AZ; Boston, MA; Skokie, IL and San Jose, CA to name a few.

Tim was a “consciences objector” at the time of the Viet Nam war and worked in several hospitals instead of fighting. He was accepted to DU in Social Work but wondered why he never heard from the U. of TN. After a phone call and an interview, he was accepted. He graduated with a PhD in Clinical Psych. from the Univ. in 1979.

Tim married the first time in 1981, divorced in 1982, met Ruth in 1983 and married her in 1984. (He didn’t mention what happened in 1985 but it had to be good). Tim and Ruth have their own counseling service called ReLeaf Counseling (303 972-0714). He was introduced to the club in 1989 by Barney O’Grady with Dean Hiss’s help. Tim was club President in 2003/04 and has been very active in the club over the years and was our Sertoman of the Year in 2006.

Tim had a handout titled “DON’T WHY? ON YOURSELF”. The question WHY? Is a bad question to ask yourself or anyone else! You can read it by clicking here: WHY?.pdf

Dr. Tim has also been doing work on helping people who have Phobias and says it only takes a few minutes with outstanding results. He works out of his house so give him a call.   (303) 972-0714
