Meet a Westsider:
Pam Shinkle (Bloom)

      Profession/Occupation...Iím co-owner (with my husband Bill) of Uncle Samís Pancake House in Manitou.

      What I like most about the Westside is... seeing friends that Iíve known for years.


      If I could change anything about the Westside, it would be...to put red left-turn signals at 21st, 26th and 31st streets and Hwy 24. Too many bad wrecks at those intersections.

      A good movie I've seen recently is... I just watched ďMy Big Fat Greek WeddingĒ again. Itís a great movie! It reminds me of my family. We all have a little crazy side to us!

      I'd like to discover... world peace!

      If I could meet someone famous, I'd like to meet... a young Brad Pitt could be fun!

       The next time I travel, I'm going to... the Bahamas in November for my husbandís "50"!

      My favorite childhood memory is... my family playing music and singing in the kitchen while we fixed dinner.

      My favorite fall pastime is... My favorite season is fall. Itís so beautiful here. I wouldnít mind skipping winter! I like to hang out with my grandsons and do things with them and take them places.

      Something good I've read is..."50 Shades of Grey,Ē by E.L. James. Canít wait for the movie.

      My pet peeve is... rude, impatient people.

      If I didn't have to work for a year, I'dÖ travel. Spend more time with my grandsons..
