Meet a Westsider:
Profession/Occupation... graphic artist/signmaker/printmaker.
What I like most about the Westside is... the Carnegie Library in Old Colorado City.
If I could change anything about the Westside, it would be... deannex it from Colorado Springs. We could then join Manitou or create our own town.
A good movie Iíve seen recently is... ďSecond Hand Lions.Ē We donít get out to the movies very often.
The worst advice Iíve ever gotten was... In the mid Ď70ís, I was told not to waste money investing in real estate in Cripple Creek. I was looking at spending $20,000 for a building on Bennett Avenue.
If I could meet someone famous, Iíd like to meet... Living: Todd Helton of the Colorado Rockies. Dead: Leonardo da Vinci, except I donít speak 1500s Italian. Fictional: Col. Jack OíNeill of the Star Gate Command.
The next time I travel, Iím going to... Manitou Springs. Either that or go back to Montana and Glacier National Park.
My favorite childhood memory is... exploring the Tidal Pools on vacation in Oregon.
My favorite winter pastime is... walking in the snow in the Garden of the Gods.
Something good Iíve read is.. ďThe Once and Future King,Ē by T. H. White.
My pet peeve is... people in too big of a hurry. Speeding down the street or through the parking lots.
If I won the lottery, Iíd... establish a recreation center for Special Olympics athletes.
