When I asked Prim Ivan for the opportunity to sit down with him and make some attempt to chronicle his nearly 29 years as the leading force at Hollydot, he eagerly agreed. He looked at me and asked if he would have an opportunity to talk about some of the things that were on his mind.

My writing appetite salivated. Prim has served under multiple District Managers of the Colorado City Metropolitan District. He has seen golf course restaurant managers come and go. He has been involved with 100ís of local people and 100ís more from Pueblo and beyond. He has worked with lots of CCMD employees. What did he want to talk about? Candor sells papers.

Prim talked about how much he was blessed to have had the job he has had for almost 29 years. He talked about the numerous people who he considers friends. He talked about all the volunteers who brought their time and talent to the golf course.

He talked about the wonderful job the Garciaís are doing with the restaurant and how excited he was about the 25% increase in club members over the prior year. He talked about the huge number of young people he has hired during the summer and the joy of watching them move on to successful careers of their own. He talked about how he loved to teach golf.

He talked about the support of his wife, Robin, during all the years of seven-day work weeks, low pay, and how his family had to pay a price and his delight that finally he would be able to make some of that up. You can always tell when a man loves his wife by the sparkle in his eye when he gets a chance to talk about her.
