Guests:  Jim Robinson brought his life skills coach Peter Pauwels. John Pifer had Ken Kelly. He might get inducted one of these days. A former member of the LODO club, Lynn Ilg was sitting next to Bucky, see fines paragraph below.

Most of Bob Hogge’s family attended, to watch Bob get the Sertoma of the Year (SOY) award. Bob’s mother Susan and father Mike (a past member of the club), his wife Dee and the person responsible for Bob being a member of our club, Bob’s brother John, who is an inactive member himself. (see SOD below)

Fines:  Fine to table one for having a guest: passed. Doug fined Rick Campbell for standing up and making a fool of him self when he tried to fine Don Smith for some silly reason. Passed.

Announcements: Nick had another stroke but is doing okay.  UPDATE: I talked to his wife today, Saturday, and she said he actually went home last Thursday. The Stroke Reversal medicine he received did a great job of doing what it’s supposed to do. She wasn’t sure if we would see him next week or not.

Mabe was at lunch and looked like he is doing fine except he needs a new razor.

Rick Campbell brought the Scrap Book in for all to see.

Mike Magee asked if someone would take over the duties of selling the King Soopers cards and Bob Hogge stepped up and said he would. (no wonder he was the SOY)

Our new Sgt-at-Arms mentioned that the banner is full and if anyone has any awards in their possession. I think he is going to get a new banner going.

news_l6.gif SERTOMAN OF THE DAY: 


Bob Hogge, born Jun 25, 1956 in Ogden, Utah near the Weber River. He lived in Ogden about 5 years until the family moved to Salt Lake City, then to the Melburn, CA and was in school the same time as Susan Summers and some ball player accused of using drugs. They moved back to Ogden and Bob graduated from Cappuccino, H.S. He then joined the U.S. Army and was assigned to “do tanks”. During his 3-1/2 yrs, he spent a lot of time as a secretary but then as an E-5, was back on tanks. He mentioned his team was known for their great targeting abilities by shooting one of our own tanks. Thank goodness the ammo was only practice rounds.

After the service, Bob attended the U. of Utah to learn Finance and in “84”, he moved to Denver (after his first divorce) and has been in the banking business ever since, the last 17 years at Colorado Business Bank and is a VP. He graduated form Regis University with a Bachelors Degree in Finance and a Post Graduate Degree.

Bob, along with is wife Denise, have a son and a daughter and 2 grandkids. His brother John brought him into the club about 5 years ago but John couldn’t stand it any further and quit the club a couple years ago. (He is always welcome back). Bob likes to golf, hunt fish and go boating. He has been through most chairs with the club and keeps on giving of his time. Thanks Bob for all you do.


Program:   Scott Manley introduced Dr. Bill Bergman, M.D. gives different presentations around the area.

With his growing emphasis on stress management as a key to wellness and health promotion, Dr. Bergman has received provider licensure by HeartMath, LLP and training in a number of emotional freedom and thought-field stress reduction techniques.

Some notes on today’s talk. The #1 drug prescribed by Dr’s is Lipitor. It has been recommended the 2yr olds be screened for Cholesterol and 8yr olds of high risk be given drugs.
Most new ideas in the last 5-10 years is coming out of major universities.
HDL is the good cholesterol and LDL is the bad but it isn’t that bad, it has an important role in the body until it becomes oxidized.
Not all fish oils are created equal, contaminants are not listed so purity is in question.

This is very important. Please watch the video. I urge you all to take the time to look at this 9 minute video on tires and share with others. I'm checking mine.  Do you have out-dated tires on your car?



If you ever testify in court, you might wish you could have been as sharp as this policeman. He was being cross-examined by a defense attorney during a felony trial. The lawyer was trying to undermine the police officer's credibility...  

Q: 'Officer -- did you see my client fleeing the scene?' 
A: 'No sir. But I subsequently observed a person matching the description of the offender, running several blocks away.'

Q: 'Officer -- who provided this description?' 
A: 'The officer who responded to the scene.'

Q: 'A fellow officer provided the description of this so-called offender. Do you trust your fellow officers?' 
A: 'Yes, sir. With my life..'

Q: 'With your life? Let me ask you this then officer. Do you have a room where you change your clothes in preparation for your daily duties?' 
A: 'Yes sir, we do!'

Q: 'And do you have a locker in the room?' 
A: 'Yes sir, I do..' 

Q: 'And do you have a lock on your locker?' 
A: 'Yes sir.'

Q: 'Now why is it, officer, if you trust your fellow officers with your life, you find it necessary to lock your locker in a room you share with these same officers?' 

A: 'You see, sir -- we share the building with the court complex, and sometimes lawyers have been known to walk through that room.'

The courtroom EXPLODED with laughter, and a prompt recess was called. The officer on the stand has been nominated for this year's 'Best Comeback' line -- and we think he'll win

(not researched as true but it's funny anyway)
