news_l6.gif SERTOMAN OF THE DAY: 

It was a dark and stormy night (or day) on November 18, 1934, at Porters Hospital, when Phil Grimm decided to come into the world, backwards. The Dr’s at that time weren’t real sure how to deal with this kind of birth so they needed some help. Phil attended Lincoln Elementary, Grant Jr. High and graduating Englewood Sr. High in 1952. He then took Pre-Dental at DU for one year and participated in ROTC and dated a WAC. At about this time, he met Marlys (who had Cheerleader legs), a Dental Assistant for Phil’s Uncle and in the late 50’s, they were married. They have been married about 56 years, have 3 kids and 4 grand kids. He was brought into the club by Bill Anderson and Bill Parchen about 1991. In 2002/2003, Phil was the club President after going through most of the chairs.


Phil started his working career doing summer jobs like building a house, shoveling up to 20 tons of manure a day and buffing cars. In 1957 he went into the sign business and retired from it in 2000. Now he plays tennis, golf and cards to stay busy.


Program:   John Vierthaler introduced Alexandra Davis, Assistant Director – Water for the Department of Natural Resources. She came to explain some of the issues with the state’s water resource. She was born in NY, NY and at age seven, her parents moved the family to Aspen. She has an Under Graduate degree from CA. and attended CU Law School.

Water is a limited commodity in Colorado. 20% of the state’s water is on the Front Range but 80% of the population lives there. 85% of the water goes to agriculture with the rest to industry, energy and humans. One of the problems with the people getting to use the water is the water is owned by holders of Senior water rites and it’s “use it or lose it”. The state owns all the water.

The Colorado Water Conservation Board (CWCB) was created in 1937 for the purpose of aiding in the protection and development of the waters of the state. The agency is responsible for water project planning and finance, stream and lake protection, flood hazard identification and mitigation, weather modification, river restoration, water conservation and drought planning, water information, and water supply protection. CWCB's Mission Statement: To Conserve, Develop, Protect and Manage Colorado's Water for Present and Future Generations.

Did You Know Reducing Water Can Lead to BIG Savings?
• Watering your landscape in the early morning or late evening can save up to 40% of water.
• Washing clothes in a high efficiency washer can save 6,000 gallons per household annually.
• Xeriscaping uses 42% less water than traditional landscaping.
Check out even more savings!

Someone had to remind me, so I'm reminding you too. Don't is all true...

Perks of reaching 50 or being over 60 and heading toward 70!

01. Kidnappers are not very interested in you.

02. In a hostage situation, you are likely to be released first.

03. No one expects you to run--anywhere.

04. People call at 9 PM and ask, did I wake you?

05. People no longer view you as a hypochondriac.

06. There is nothing left to learn the hard way.

07. Things you buy now won't wear out.

08. You can eat supper at 4 PM.

09. You can live without sex but not your glasses.

10. You get into heated arguments about pension plans.

11. You no longer think of speed limits as a challenge.

12. You quit trying to hold your stomach in no matter who walks into the room.

13. You sing along with elevator music.

14. Your eyes won't get much worse.

15. Your investment in health insurance is finally beginning to pay off.

16. Your joints are more accurate met meorologists than the National Weather Service.

17. Your secrets are safe with your friends because they can't remember them either.

18.. Your supply of brain cells is finally down to manageable size.

19. You can't remember who sent you this list.

And you notice these are all in Big Print for your convenience.

NOTE: Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.
