news_l6.gif SERTOMAN OF THE DAY:     

Sertoman of the Day:   Pastor Jim Robinson was born in St. Louis, Missouri, on September 26, 1946. He was raised Lutheran and got into the ministry because his uncle was a pastor. His Mom and dad were both in the Navy, he was Army (blended family)

Jim graduated from seminary in 1972 and started his new profession in MO. He joined the Army 21 June 1977 and served as a chaplain. He served all over the world but it sounded like he spent a lot of time in Germany, including East Germany and he retired in 2005 after 29 years and then he came to Colorado. Jim was the chaplain that blessed the first five bodies off the USS Cole.

Jim was Pastor of Christ Lutheran Church until his near fatal injury, now he is an Associate Pastor and tends after one of the greatest sinners of all time, Doug Harder. Jim was a disaster response guru for his area and helped a lot with the mess in New Orleans, along with Doug. He still has no memory between Oct and Nov 2007.

Jim has one sister, along with two children and two grandchildren with his wife, Vicki whom he married 6 Aug. 1972. Parchen claimed credit for arresting Harder the first time, putting him on the road to Deaconship. Doug Harder brought Jim into the club. Listen to Jim Robinson.mp3

Program:  Randy Smith introduced Amy Attwood and she came today to talk about Hydraulic Fracking.

Hydraulic fracturing is the fracturing of rock by a pressurized liquid. Some hydraulic fractures form naturally—certain veins or dikes are examples. Induced hydraulic fracturing (also hydrofracturing, fracking, and fraccing) is a well-stimulation technique in which a high-pressure fluid (usually water mixed with sand and chemicals) is injected into a wellbore in order to create small fractures (usually less than 1.0 mm wide) in the deep-rock formations in order to allow natural gas, petroleum, and brine to migrate to the well. When the hydraulic pressure is removed from the well, small grains of hydraulic fracturing proppants (either sand or aluminium oxide) hold open the small fractures once the deep rock achieves geologic equilibrium.

The fracking technique is commonly applied to wells for shale gas, tight gas, tight oil, and coal seam gas. Such well-stimulation usually is done once during the productive life of the well, and greatly assists in removing fluids (gas, petroleum), and thus increases the productivity of the well; often, multiple application of induced hydraulic fracturing (and/or other well-stimulation techniques) are used as the field's production declines.
