Our Rocky Mountain High continues… We traveled north to Lafayette, Colorado. There I met with Paul Spotts who is president of Catholic Young Adult Sports. In the Diocese of Denver, the organization is putting together a series of leagues (kickball, softball, flag football…) to get youth who, say, might not be talented enough for high school sports, involved with organized sports nevertheless. Spotts told me the main priority is building community among the youth, while providing an “entry way to Catholicism” for some. “It’s soft sell evangilazation,” he added… At the Lafayette McDonald’s, I stumped with some of the patrons. One man was Jeramy Hughes, who is a “senior scientist” with Cold Quanta in nearby Boulder, Colorado. He told me they expriment with lasers on atoms. I asked him what particular application(s). He said because the science is so new, they are still trying to figure all that out. “We’re a solution looking for a problem,” he smiled… I then went to the Lafayette Library where I put up a campaign flyer on the Community Bulletin Board there. This library’s entire roof is an array of solar panels and there is an intermediate sized wind turbine out front as well. Lafayette sits about 5,500 feet above sea level and gets a significant amount of wind. Note: Bumper sticker sighting in Lafayette, Colorado: Sea level is for Sissies!
