A Time to Reflect, a Time to Plan, and a Time to Execute — Mike Fiore

“There’s nothing else I really want to do other than get up and build boats. If I won the lottery tomorrow, I would still do the exact same thing. Nothing would change. It’ll be that way I’m sure until the day I die. — Mike Fiore, from Speed On The Water digital magazine, July/August 2013

4th Down and Five To Go — Dustin Colquitt

Dustin Colquitt may be the highest paid punter in the NFL, but he is firmly grounded by his faith and his family. “There is one big, nonnegotiable rule in this house,” Dustin says. “Walk with Jesus, and learn to play golf and ping-pong.” The first part of the rule is obvious. And Dustin says golf and ping-pong are big in the Colquitt clan, and both can be played for a lifetime. Dustin, who was born into a dynasty of punters, never really gave punting or football a thought. Instead, he played soccer and basketball. His father, Craig, who played for the Pittsburg Steelers from 1978 to 1984, has two Super Bowl rings. His brother Britton punts for the Denver Broncos. And his cousin, Jimmy Colquitt, holds the career punting title at the University of Tennessee, which the whole family attended.

From The Farm To Atlantic City — Miss Missouri Jessica Hartman

Jessica Hartman has done more in her first 24 years than most people do in a lifetime. And her journey from Colorado to Missouri to the Miss America Contest last September is just part of her persona. The 5-foot, 10-inch blonde was born and raised in Pueblo, Colorado. Her father, Gregg, owns a sod farm and lawn-care business and breeds Gelbvieh cattle. Kris, Jessica’s mother, works for a company that is redeveloping the Army depot in Pueblo. She has one sister, Danielle, who is a senior at Colorado State University-Pueblo, majoring in business.

From the Lake to the Luminous — Mike Hopkins

The first humans who will walk on Mars are walking the Earth today, says the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, NASA. Will one be Mike Hopkins from the Lake? Maybe, but if not his feet stepping onto the planet, Mike is helping provide the path there.
