Congratulations to Past President Susan Klear for guiding another successful year for Campbell Rotary, with record membership growth!
Welcome new Club President Marvin Bamburg, who returns for a second term as president for the 2012-13 Rotary Year! Marv’s year began with our first meeting on July 3, at which he presented some details about Club operation under his direction.

Traditionally, the outgoing president recognizes various members for outstanding service to the club by
giving a certificate or some type of gift. When I reflected on this year, I thought that this was a real team effort by the whole club — how can I pick whom to recognize? Continue reading Jerry’s Presidential Farewell
It’s not actually her picture, but Dr. Sue Klear’s “Brain Music Therapy” appears on the cover of this week’s Metro newspaper:
I’M RELAXING in a chair upstairs inside Suite 11 of the historic Kiely House in Santa Clara, a Queen Anne Victorian dating back to the 19th century. Dr. Sue Klear, a licensed psychologist specializing in neurofeedback, has just attached seven sensors to my head and face with an odorless skin-prepping gel to prepare me for the initial stages of Brain Music Therapy, an experimental treatment for insomnia, anxiety, depression and stress.
The treatment records an individual’s brain waves using an Electroencephalogram (EEG), analyzes them and then converts them into two piano tracksâ€”one “relaxing file” and one “activating file.” These are eventually burned onto a CD for the patient to play while going to sleep and after waking up, the idea being that the musical sounds form a correlation to your specific brain waves in order to help eliminate imbalanced brain activity. So, theoretically, you end up sleeping much better and function more productively during the day.
Read the full story about Brain Music Therapy on Metro’s website.
If you’ve got the paper edition in your hand, the story starts on Page 26, and Sue’s picture appears a few pages later. She’s also pictured online attaching sensors to the reporter’s head … undoubtedly brainwashing him to portray Rotary in a positive light …
Wait a minute … does the article mention Rotary?
We may not be seeing a lot of Jim Burgard for a while …
Jim has been kind of busy recently … serving on and being appointed to civil and public boards for the State of California. Word has come from Sacramento that Jim is now serving on the California Board for Professional Engineers and Land Surveyors and the California Department of Consumer Affairs Board of Pharmacy.
His appointment to the Professional Engineers board is so recent that his name has yet to appear on the official list of board members. As for the Board of Pharmacy, his name is prominently included, but his biography inexplicably fails to mention Rotary.
