Meet a Westsider:
Richard Lambert

Profession/Occupation... Owner of Lambert & Sons Construction, Inc.; former owner of Hitch Rack Stables and Pikes Peak Stables at Penrose Stadium.

What I like most about the Westside is... most of the people are residents with longevity. They have older values and it is similar to living in a small town.

If I could change anything about the Westside, it would be... to become a town of its own like it was years ago. Stop expanding.

A good movie I’ve seen recently is... “Open Range.”

The worst advice I’ve ever gotten was... buy stocks.

If I could meet someone famous, I’d like to meet... Sam Elliott.

The next time I travel, I’m going to... Spain.

My favorite childhood memory is... working with horses, oxen and tractors.

My favorite winter pastime is... skiing.

Something good I’ve read is.. “Making of a Nation,” by Life Magazine; and “Centennial,” by James Michener.

My pet peeve is... Colorado Springs Utilities TV commercials with no competition and their high-dollar executives. No one is worth that.

If I won the lottery, I’d... buy new machinery and take a world cruise.
