Announcements:
 
     -Jim reminded everyone that Willis Horak is collecting raffle ticket money and
      raffle prizes.  So far Hugh Smith is again leading with ticket sales.  Emmet will
      send out the prize list from last year to help in ticket sales.
 
     -Larry Rumans confirmed that we are on for the garage sale/bazaar at Sunrise
      Drive Elementary School parking lot on February 16th.  He is asking for
      volunteers to help out.  There will be advertising on line, on the radio and road
      signs at nearby intersections.  Call Larry if you need anything picked up and if
      you can, email what you think your donated item is worth to help in pricing
      items.
 
     -Doug Woodard reported that the refrigerator and freezer we are donating to
      Imago Dei School are being delivered today, Feb. 6th, at 9:00 am.  He will be
      there to receive them.
 
     -Mike Kloehn enjoyed his trip to Alamos, Sonora for the opening of the clinic.
      He attended a training session and visited a village along with other Rotarians
      who also went on the trip.  He hopes to give a more extensive presentation at
      a later date.
 
    -Kris Kreutz announced that he is leaving Casas Adobes Rotary.  He has also
      retired from his job on January 3rd.  He will still be a Rotary supporter, having
      been a Rotarian for about 30 years.  He plans to spend time with his aging
      mother, his grandchildren and do some traveling.  The club will miss you Kris!
 
     -Jeff Shields gave Chapter 2 of his bio:  Attending the University of Iowa, he
      intended to study pharmacy but soon realized he couldn’t when he took
     organic chemistry.  He moved to religious studies with the intention of
     becoming a Presbyterian minister.  That idea didn’t work out when he was told
     he was too much of a “capitalist pig”.  Finally he settled on becoming a stock
     broker with the intention of using his spiritual bent to truly helping people with
     their finances.  He became a Catholic when he married his wife and lived in
     Alabama.  So the moral of his story is that he is ecumenical in religion and also
     politics because of his two grandfathers.  One was a Democrat and the other a
     Republican.  He remembers once at a holiday dinner he told them to stop
     arguing and that they have more in common than they have differences.
Program
Program for 02_06_2019
 
George Darling introduced Bob Feinman, a consultant for Mexican businesses that do business with Americans.  Bob grew up speaking Spanish in New York City and then came to the U of A.  He worked as a disc jockey as a student before spending  40 years in Spanish language broadcasting.  In 2011 he started his own consulting business.  He is also vice president of the Nogales Senora Chamber of Commerce.
Bob said the main issue Americans have traveling to Mexico is fear.  He compared violence in the U.S. with violence in Mexico.  In the U.S. it is random and innocent people are harmed.  Mainly in Mexico the bad guys shoot other bad guys or law enforcement so the fear in unwarranted.  A visa to enter Mexico is free but he recommends auto insurance which can be purchased on line.  And with the exchange rate at 20 pesos to the $1.00, it’s a good deal.  The bottom line is to just use common sense when traveling.
