news_l6.gif SERTOMAN OF THE DAY:     

Sertoman of the Day:    Bob Stein said we have all read or heard his bio so he gave a little history of the club and when he was the President and Gold Coat recipient. Bob is a Denver native, is the oldest of five kids and has been up here since 1974, giving his life history. Bob is married to Diane with over 50 years under his belt, has one daughter, one son-in-law and one grandchild (keeps it simple that way). Gary Castle got him into Sertoma. Bob has been
past President (85-86) – Gold Coat, and past District Governor in 1989. Back then, there was only one District with 17 clubs which kept him busy trying to visit all of them on a timely manner.

Bob decided to enlisted in the Navy in 1960 instead of finishing college and took training to be a Fire Control Officer (they don’t put out fires, they compute all kinds of things before firing the big guns). About half way through that he got into submarine school. The first part of the training was to learn about every system on the boat. He was able to get duty in Pearl Harbor. He was assigned to the third nuclear sub ever built, the USS Seadragon SSN- 584. He then got to go back to school to learn the fire control systems on a new sub in Long Beach. Bob figured out that the more schools he went to, the less time he would be on a ship. He was the junior member of the crew so he was almost an E-5 but still got stuck with mess duty (this was around 1961).

This was during the cold war so their duty was to keep an eye on the Russians. The only limit on their duty at sea was how much food they could stuff on board. So he got to go to the North Pole, test weapons, chase Russians, learn to dive, and all other sorts of fun stuff, not to forget that he went around the world about 22 times. He didn’t want to leave Hawaii but he eventually did and came back home and started doing new systems for a new sub. He was then stationed in Spain and got to patrol the Mediterranean. He eventually took the test to go to E-8 and passed, but declined the commission and got out of the service. After the service, Bob started several banks in the area and started a Car Wash with another Sertoman. We just learned the Bob has sold the Car Wash, no wonder there weren’t any quarters on the table Listen to Bob Stein.mp3

Program:   Randy Smith introduced Scott Perry, a returning program, and his talk this week is on Super bowl History. Scott Perry, local author of “NFL Since 1970: The Ultimate Visual and Historical Standings Reference”.

Perry has written this definitive standings reference book that tallies how all National Football League teams have done since the 1970 AFL/NFL merger. His book also includes a brief history of each team.

Former New Yorker that has been here most my life. I consider the Columbine area my home town having been here since 1981. My wife Linda is from Springfield, MO and we have a 2 year old daughter. I publish a NFL/Bronco history book that is my effort to see the Broncos become the team with the highest winning percentage of all regular season games played since the merger in 1970. It’s a visual guide to every season with playoffs and a cumulative standings. I was lucky enough to be the fan of the week on the John Fox Show last year. I made my first contribution to in 2006 with a story on Jeff Winter. He is an excellent race car driver that has his own shop in Arvada and accomplished a feat in his Datsun 510 a short time before I wrote about him. I love cars and racing so if you have any ideas for a story in yourhub or would like to learn more about my crazy stats book please email me… His web site is temporarily down but it is:     Listen to Scott Perry.mp3
