September's Board Meeting
John Cowel bragged on his
daughter, I think he said, with a successful new
business, "Bed Bugs".
Anderson, who has returned to the fold (welcome
back, Greg!) had, as he put it, his usual brag:
HIS daughter, Sophie, has been named "The
best Rugby player, male or female, in the NATION!"
She plays for Penn State.
Danielson bragged that he completed one of his
bucket list items by going to
Speedway compliments of Tom Kula . . . seems
he "got three runs in, " hitting 98 mph in the 1/4
Cord reported/bragged that our Brainiac Bowl team
came in "neither first nor last", but they DID
Nathan tells us that we will be meeting and going
to the Harvest Festival Corn Maze on the 17th.
Wait. that was TODAY. Ah, well, he
also has a "nice, sit-down Christmas dinner"
planned (see below)..
Burns bragged that he is the Flag Captain for the
North College Flag route. Unfortunately,
he says he has no members. So, he sent
around a sign-up sheet. He also told us of
saga of the flag-mounting brackets for the light
poles on the north side. Thanks to Timmy
we have a CRAP-TON of heavy-duty flag-mounting
brackets capable of withstanding typhoon winds, I
would guess . . . . seems they need some
modification, however, to actually FIT to the
poles. News at 10.
Ken Borrett only had one thing to say: "Team
Magic" (ya' got me!)
Bill Brown told us a story of poor Olie Torkelson
. . . seems he was gunned down after admitting,
asked, that he was "Olie, been loggin'".
(I'm sure he'll return sometime in the future,
Rob Allergeiligen is going to VIETNAM for 6 weeks!
What a difference 40 years makes!
Dan Kaup had TWO
brags, one for our own Larry Abrahamson.
Seems he was elected President of the
Colorado District Attorney's Council! He
will serve as President-elect until 9/11, when he
over the duties of President. Congrats,
Dan's second (FIVE DOLLAR) brag was for his
son, Brett. Apparently he was engaged
weekend, to Megan Anderson, of the Minnesota
Ron Young had a $5 brag for
Randy Willard for his successful dealing with a
Dunnigan bragged that, last weekend, at the FCHS
Homecoming, his son was elected Homecoming King of
the Sophomore class!
Treasurer, Bob Kopplin, asked us all to PLEASE pay
our quarterly dues ASAP. Something about
money to pay for a room to meet in and food.
Bob told us he will be traveling back and forth
few weeks . . . . when Timmy Miller happened to
mention that Bob had been "travelin' a lot since
been Treasurer", and Mr. Ross pointed out that
there's "a need for money". Hmmmmmm!!
then had a $20 brag. In a meeting with his
oncologist Friday morning, seems he got the good
that everything has been going as planned, and, if
it continues, he'll be OFF his drug regimen by
Bush told us that last Sunday, when biking in Lory
State Park, he "ran into three bobcats".
(Isn't that the lowest rank of the Cub Scouts
K pointed out that since CSU won on Saturday, we
will be able to prove we're "only the 3rd worst
team in the conference, leaving UNLV and New
Mexico to fight it out for worst".
Next home game is New Mexico on 10/30 at 4 p.m.
this time, our guest, Vicki Lutz, had a $5 brag:
She found out last week that both her kids had

Larimer County Boys and Girls Club for our $2,500

Collins! OOhs and Ahhhs echoed
birthday check for $90 from Dave Williams for The
Foundation was presented. (he apparently

Vick Lutz, Executive Director of
Crossroads Safehouse spoke with us on
Friday, the 15th. She has been with
Crossroads since 2004 when she took over the
reins of the then struggling agency.
Since then, she has managed to increase the
donations from private donors over 100
percent, from $600,000 in 2004 to $1.3
million in 2008.
Her latest effort is a capital campaign to
build an innovative "green" Safehouse to
serve as a national model for other domestic
violence programs. She told us that
they are just $41,637 short of raising the
6.1M needed to build. She also
mentioned that if YOU were thinking of
starting a capital campaign at the beginning
of a recession, you should RETHINK!
A former prosecutor with the
District Attorney's Office and former
Adjunct Professor at the
School of Law, Ms.
Lutz "has created and conducted
gender violence training programs for
prosecutors, civil and criminal defense
attorneys, judges, law enforcement
personnel, advocates and other members of
the community-response network since 1994".
As the Executive Director of the
Pace Women's Justice
Center, in NY, for twelve
she provided the guidance and
vision for the Center to grow from 1
members to a staff of over twenty.
For her efforts in Fort Collins, she was
named the 2009 Northern Colorado Woman of
Influence in Nonprofit Organizations.
If you missed her speak, you missed a
fascinating, dynamic woman with a purpose .
. . . That of making a difference in this
paraprosdokian (from Greek "παρα-", meaning
"beyond" and "προσδοκία",
meaning "expectation") is a figure of speech
in which the latter part of a
sentence or phrase is surprising or unexpected
in a way that causes the
reader or listener to reframe or reinterpret
the first part.
It is frequently used for humorous or dramatic
effect, sometimes producing an anticlimax.
Some paraprosdokians not only change the
meaning of an early phrase, but also play on
the double meaning, creating a syllepsis.

work that way. So I stole

weeks of captivity, they can
train people to stand on the very edge of the
pool and throw them fish.
Ø Whenever I fill out an application, in the
part that says "If an
emergency, notify:" I put "DOCTOR".
Ø Why does someone believe you when you say
