Phil Grimm, born backwards in 1934 at Porter, here in Denver. Went to Rosedale, then to Grant Jr. High and, then to Englewood High School. He went to D.U. for a year, was in R.O.T.C., met his wife Marlys at that time. She was a Dental Assistant for Phil’s uncle. They have been married 54 years this year. They have several kids and grandkids.

Phil went into the sign business and was in it for 40 years before retiring in 2001. Parchen was one of 2 members that brought Phil into the club and was the club president in about 2001, after going through most of the chairs.

Program:   Barney O’Grady was program chair this week and introduced Judge Vincent Atencio, who is the municipal judge for the city of Englewood. He is the only judge in the state that is directly elected by the people and it is a feature that is unique to Englewood. In most cities, the judge is appointed by the city council. Judge Atencio was elected in 1997 among several other candidates and has ran unopposed since.

The laws that he can deal with are only those that derive from the city of Englewood. The Englewood courts handle over 20,000 cases a year. He sees traffic offenses, code violations, minor juvenile problems etc etc. Most do not go in front of him, they are settled by the person paying the fines.

The Judge was very focused on the positive aspects of the system and was happy with the functioning of the courts.

The Judge was asked several questions, some I think were asked to find out how to beat the system but he didn’t fall for it. He figured out real fast what type of a group he was talking to.
