news_l6.gif SERTOMAN OF THE DAY: 

Dave Miley was the SOD today. He reminded us he was born on the day FDR was inaugurated for the 3 rd time, Jan 20th, 1941, in Indianapolis, Ind., next to the White River, in the Methodist Hospital (the same hospital the race car drivers go to if they have an accident). He grew up near a racetrack and in the winter, the kids would sled down the banked turns of the track.

Dave’s dad came to Denver in 1944 to work at the Remington Arms plant but that only lasted 6 months do to the end of the War. In 1951, the family lived on Elati St. Dave and Bob Schlageter terrorized the neighborhood. At 13, Dave’s dad told “Shorty” he could start crawling around in attics installing insulation. He could do 7 houses a day at $3/house. Dave attended several grade schools but graduated from Engolewood High in 1959. Dave played football in H.S. with Harder’s brother, Dave and somehow, Dave and Dave switched girl friends.

Dave graduated from CSU with a major in Business Admin. And ROTC. In 1964, he joined the U.S. Air Force, went to flight school in Williams, AZ and served with the 352nd in Vietnam. After 6-1/2 years, he left the service in 1971 and since the airlines were laying pilots off, Dave got his Real Estate license and now does mostly commercial stuff. Dave earned the Bronze Star.

Dave has 2 kids and 3 grandkids. Joined South Suburban club in ‘72’, and then switched to Arapahoe. He was the President in ‘78’ and Governor in ‘95’. He has held all positions except secretary. He was also the Sertoman of the Year in 1991. Dave is a military history buff and he likes golf and auto racing, especially midgets. In Jan, he goes to OK to watch indoor racing.


Program:   Scott Manley introduced Paul King, on Iowa boy and CU Graduate. Paul liked climbing mountains and went to Argentina in 1999 to climb, then for some academic studies. He fell in love with the people and the culture. After several years, he was trying to figure out what his mission in life was and after seeing the poor children all the time, and how they lacked skills and other opportunities compared to the more well to do kids, he decided to start a non profit vocational trade school that would train the kids to do rather simple but much need skills such as driving trucks, all kinds of construction work and anything else that was in need. That is how “Juntos Argentina got started.

Juntos Argentina seeks to provide opportunities to disadvantaged Argentinean youth so that they can improve their lives and have a better future, therefore benefiting their families, communities and country.

Juntos Argentina endeavors to arrange job skills courses to be taught to lower class youth, beginning in the Argentinean city of Mendoza. Juntos is the Spanish word for “together” and the expectation is that the organization will collaborate with families, communities, schools, government, businesses, and other organizations in order to provide opportunities to the youths. Following success with Juntos in Mendoza, this model can be duplicated throughout Argentina as well as other Latin American countries.

Upcoming programs:

September 25th - David Cook-"Mom always liked you best"
October 2nd - Open
October 9th - Robert Kraft
November 11th - Frank on Hydrogen

The love story of Ralph and Edna...

Just because someone doesn't love you the way you want them to, doesn't mean they don't love you with all they have.

Ralph and Edna were both patients in a mental hospital.

One day while they were walking past the hospital swimming pool.

Ralph suddenly jumped into the deep end.

He sank to the bottom of the pool and stayed there.

Edna promptly jumped in to save him.

She swam to the bottom and pulled him out.

When the Head Nurse Director became aware of

Edna's heroic act she immediately ordered her to be discharged from the hospital, as she now considered her to be mentally stable.

When she went to tell Edna the news she said, 'Edna, I have good news and bad news.

The good news is you're being discharged, since you were able to rationally respond to a crisis by jumping in and saving the life of the person you love.

I have concluded that your act displays sound mindedness.

The bad news is, Ralph hung himself in the bathroom with his bathrobe belt right after you saved him.

I am so sorry, but he's dead.'

Edna replied, 'He didn't hang himself. I put him there to dry. How soon can I go home?'


An interesting way to help select your candidate.
