Jim Britton made his first official appearance as the SOD (that will teach him to come back from vacation). Jim was born in Englewood but shortly after, the family moved to East Denver where he attended grade and junior high. They then moved west and he graduated from Miller High.

Jim doesn’t profess to be a “jock” but he did letter in the 440 relay. Out of high school, Jim became a Laborer and while working on the Coliseum, he had a bad fall resulting in him being classified as 4F so he was unable to join the military. That really bothered him because his brother was in the Navy on the Battle Ship U.S.S. New Jersey. After healing, he became a dry wall finisher, then he started his own company and after 52 years of ownership, he sold the business and bought a place in Phoenix close to Ed Bezjak. In the winter, Jim is the President of the Lyons Club at Sun Village.

Jim will celebrate 60 years of marriage with Barbara whom he met in high school. They have one adopted son and a beautiful daughter-in-law. They have a son and 2 grandsons.

Jim was President of the International drywall Association, going through all the chairs. They represented 15 countries. He belonged to Pine Hurst Sertoma going through several chairs, then he met Norm Schillo who brought Jim over to us for a free lunch and since we have more fun, Jim joined our club. Glad to have you Jim.

Program:   Rick Jacobus introduced Bill Cherf, author of the book “Bow Tie" and member of the Denver DTC Sertoma Club. W.J. Cherf was born in Chicago in 1952. He graduated from Indiana University – Bloomington with a degree in Anthropology and then continued his education at Loyola University of Chicago with degrees in Egyptian Archaeology and Ancient History. He has traveled extensively throughout the Eastern Mediterranean and has been a member of academic archaeological projects in Israel and Greece.

While his professional academic publications primarily focus upon the late Roman frontier of Central Greece, his articles have appeared in Egyptological publications as well. Cherf is the author/editor of two books, numerous academic articles and book reviews. He lives in Denver, Colorado with his wife Sue, Foxbat 1, and Foxbat 2. He is currently the Secretary of the Egyptian Study Society of Denver, Colorado. They enjoy golf, road racing, and cheering for the Chicago Bears. This is his first science fiction ebook production.

Not until ther evidence was uncovered in the 1870s would we have ever known. With the discovery of Tut's tomb in the 1920s more hints beckoned at hand. As with so many things in life, clues often go unnoticed until science, accident, and intrigue collide.

That collision was initiated with some DNA samples from a group of royal mummies. Meanwhile an international team noticed, while x-raying the same mummy collection, some unexpected physiological details.

The chromosomal and radiological data proved to be disquieting and when taken together argued for the introduction of a genetic anomaly into the human genome. The source was extraterrestrial.

Bow Tie chronicles how an international scientific effort resolved the situation by using a most unusual means for prosecuting a most unscrupulous task - time travel and murder.

this is the first manuscript published by the Richards' Trust in accordance with the posthumous wishes of the Egyptologist Joseph William Richards, Ph.D.

Soap Box Derby Littleton homeowner letters
Hi Everyone,It is that time again to pass out the letters to the homeowners around the race track, letting them know about the race and the streets being closed. We will be meeting at Euclid Middle School (where the race is at) on Sunday, May 22, 2011 at 2:00 pm to pass out the letters. I need as many volunteers as I can get. The letters are sorted by address with a map attached showing where the street is. You don't have to talk to anyone, we just need to drop them off at each address, using the screen door or the front door frame. The more volunteers that we have, the less time that it will take. I am asking everyone to come and volunteer to pass out letters on several streets. Please let me know if you will be able to help out.
