SERTOMAN OF THE DAY:
Jim Helmick was born in Toledo Ohio on August 11, 1936, on the banks of the Maumee River. At the age of 19 he enrolled into the University of Toledo and 10 years later received his degree in Electrical Engineering. In the meantime, he got married and fathered 3 children who have produced so far 7 grandchildren. While in night school, he worked at a large hardware store from 54-60, and at Toledo Scale from 60-64. His work caused him to travel a lot, going to Texas, Alabama, Nebraska, Iowa, New Jersey, California and Colorado.
He started working for Johns Mansville in 1965, George Hannes hired him in Ohio. In 1974 he had to choose between staying married or moving to Colorado. Since his wife wished to stay in Toledo with the kids and grand kids, and since it is obvious that Jim is here in Colorado, the choice is clear. Jim later remarried and is now married to Barbara. Jim held various positions with J.M. including director of fiber glass research and director of marketing. After spending sometime in California in the minerals division, Jim left J.M. in 1990 and returned to Colorado in 1998. Rich Carlson brought him into the club in 1998.
Program: Scott Manley introduced Jason Bane and Dylan Steele. Jason is running for Jefferson County Commissioner. Scott plays golf with Jason's dad.
Public service has always been my passion, and I am excited about the opportunity to bring new, responsible leadership to the county I have always called home.
I am a lifelong resident of Jefferson County, and so is my wife, Julie. Our families have been a part of the community here for generations. My grandparents lived in Lakewood for more than 60 years. My mother graduated from Alameda High School. My aunt attended Bear Creek High School when it burned down in 1962; she went to class in temporary buildings while they rebuilt the school. I also graduated from Bear Creek, and now they are once again building a new high school.
I began my career as a journalist, and I wanted to be a reporter because I thought that I could make a difference through the stories I told. I have worked in all news mediums (television, radio, newspaper and magazines), and I have been fortunate to have covered many interesting stories and interviewed many amazing people.
As a reporter for PEOPLE magazine, I interviewed the survivors of the Columbine High School tragedy for a five-year anniversary story and saw how each of them learned to cope with the shootings in their own way. I told the story of Marlo Payne Rice, an exceptional woman who started a school for "twice exceptional" children in Broomfield. I spent the day with a grandmother in Ft. Carson who was raising seven grandchildren while her son and daughter-in-law were stationed in Iraq. She still sends me Christmas cards from her home in Ohio.
