Meet a Westsider:
Bill Schnick

Profession/Occupation... owner, BJD Engraving.

What I like most about the Westside is... the old-style neighborhoods. People look out for each other. Also, lots of trees, not to mention the view of Pikes Peak right out our front door.

If I could change anything about the Westside, it would be... nothing, I love the Westside.

A good movie I’ve seen recently is... “I, Robot” and “The Last Samurai.”

The worst advice I’ve ever gotten was... follow your brain, instead of your heart.

If I could meet someone famous, I’d like to meet... Adam Sandler. He makes me laugh.

The next time I travel, I’m going to... Indiana, for a family reunion.

My favorite childhood memory is... Sunday mornings after family card games. We went to the bakery for dozens of rolls, then my dad made breakfast for everyone – 20 to 30 people.

My favorite summer pastime is... motorcycling, there’s nothing like it.

Something good I’ve read is.. “Shogun: a novel of Japan,” by James Clavell. I love Janpanese history.

My pet peeve is... new cars don’t seem to come with directionals, or nobody thinks they need to use them.

If I won the lottery, I’d... live a good life; everyone I care for would, too! We already do, but it would be nice to do it with money!
