Meet a Westsider:
Profession/Occupation... owner of Rocky Mountain Fireplace Spa and Grill and president of the Fraternal Order of Eagles # 143.
What I like most about the Westside is... the small community feeling. Iím a Colorado native, born in Black Forest. I moved to the Westside about 10 years ago. I like the quiet neighborhood we live in.
If I could change anything about the Westside, it would be... to have another kind of tree other than elm. I think the elms are taking over. They grow like weeds.
A good movie Iíve seen recently is... ďThe Passion of the Christ.Ē Itís actually the only movie Iíve seen recently. It was a thought- provoking movie, and I think it created a lot of interest.
The worst advice Iíve ever gotten was... the best and worst advice Iíve ever gotten was to start my own business.
If I could meet someone famous, Iíd like to meet... George W. Bush. Right now he is in our highest recognized position in the country. Whether you love him or hate him, heís in our most influential position.
The next time I travel, Iím going to... Cancun. We spent three days there on our honeymoon and Iíd like to go back to do all the things I didnít have time for.
My favorite childhood memory is... going to the lake with my family.
My favorite summer pastime is... racing. I love to watch any kind of racing. My family has had a history of racing. Iíve raced mini-stock cars in the past and will certainly do more in the future. Itís a fun hobby.
Something good Iíve read is.. the Bible. I donít have much time to read so when I do, this is usually what I pick up.
My pet peeve is... traffic. It seems there are more cars on the road every day.
If I won the lottery, Iíd... be debt-free and be able to travel and spend more time with my family.
