Bob is currently the Production Manager for KHEN community radio and volunteers numerous hours to assist with production of shows like "Behind the Kitchen Door." He has also helped to get “Pursuing Personal Peace” off the ground, and generates many creative public service announcements and station identification messages. Bob’s family has been part of Salida for many years, going back to his grandfather "Bob" and his great grandfather. They would bring his mother, and other family members, to the upper Arkansas River Valley for vacation from their home in Ponca City, Oklahoma. Bob has made his home here for over the past 10 years. He participates in the singing group “You’ve Got Male” and serves on the board for the Salida Museum.

As a Colorado native Lisa fills every minute of her time with family, friends, volunteering, cooking, baking, canning, working and playing, squeezing time on the river and snow in-between our many beautiful seasons here in the valley with her small farm with four chickens, two ducks, two cats, new puppy and organic garden.
