news_l6.gif SERTOMAN OF THE DAY: 

Howie Kelsall who I believe is the only remaining charter member of Arapahoe Sertoma Club. He is an actual Colorado native, having been born in Boulder. He attended CU and started as a music major. He decided that Med school made more sense, and entered in 1942. He had enough money for one semester, but then worked out a deal with the US Army. They paid for him to finish school and he then served in the Army for two years in Vienna and Germany. He drove up to Wyoming for a job and when he got out of his car, his hat was blown off. He ran after it in the snow about ½ mile and did get the hat but decided Wyoming was no place to live so he returned to Colorado.

He met Helen, his wife, during an autopsy (and you thought your story was unusual!) She was working at Children’s Hospital as a Surgical Nurse. They had four children who all did fairly well. His daughter is a PHD, one son is president of E College, and the other two sons are MD’s. Howie was a local pediatrician for 52 years. Howie said his wife has been pretty ill and that is why he hasn’t been here as much as he would like. He is really one of our great members. Thanks for sharing, Howie.

Program:   Rick Jacobus introduced our program, Steve Ward. Steve is running for the 6 th Congressional District. He is a Republican. As a Colonel of Marines with 27-years of military experience, Steve Ward has served all over the world and been involved in many aspects of the current wars we are fighting. His military service extends from Afghanistan and Iraq, to the Pentagon for the Quadrennial Defense Review, to Taiwan for tsunami relief, and at home serving at Northern Command where plans are developed for the defense of our homeland. No one else in this race offers this depth of experience in defense and national security issues.

At home in Colorado, Steve has served in city, county and state governments. His focus has always been on limiting government, but also ensuring that government is effective in the areas we expect it to be. As Mayor, Steve led the successful effort to build an entirely new water system for the city, improving the roads, and making them safer with sidewalks, lighting, and community policing. At the same time, taxes were lowered substantially. He eliminated the municipal sales and use tax on cars, use taxes on building materials, and lowered property taxes substantially.

As Arapahoe County Commissioner, the focus was on transportation - better streets, and a jail big enough to keep criminals off them.

Walking Eagle

'Walking Eagle' Senator BARACK OBAMA was invited to address a major gathering of the American Indian Nation two weeks ago in upstate New York.

HE spoke for almost an hour on HIS future plans for increasing every Native American's present standard of living, should HE one day become the President.

HE referred to his career as a Senator, how he had signed 'YES' for every Indian issue that came to his desk for approval. Although the Senator was vague on the details of his plan, he seemed most enthusiastic about his future ideas for helping his 'red sisters and brothers'.

At the conclusion of his speech, the Tribes presented the Senator with a plaque inscribed with his new Indian name - Walking Eagle.

The proud Senator then departed in his motorcade, waving to the crowds.

A news reporter later inquired to the group of chiefs of how they came to select the new name had given to the Senator. They explained that Walking Eagle is the name given to a bird so full of s**t it can no longer fly.
