                                           It was lovely to see and hear Tessa Stephenson, daughter of
                                           Jim, share her experiences at BHS with Rotaract. She was
                                           excited about the number of students who are participating
                                           this year – over 30 up from 5 last year. She told us that the
                                           club was putting together a life-sized Candyland game in the
                                           halls of BHS for the delight of the elementary kids, as a way to
                                           raise money. The shelter network kids will get in for free. She
                                           appealed for volunteers to chaperone on the night of
                                           December 19th at BHS.
                                     Michael Kimball paid his bet for the Stanford game
                                     debacle while at the same time praising his education
                                     at the school. He warned Jay to wait until next year
                                     for his comeuppance.

Guest Speaker: Mike Horwitz introduced former Special Agent,
Robert Rodriguez as our speaker today. Mr. Rodriguez is Chairman
And Founder of the Security Innovation Network, a 501 (c3) not for
profit focused on the advancement of innovation through collaboration.
Previously he spent over 22 years as a Special Agent with the United
States Secret Service. During this time he held a number of leadership
roles with Executive Protection, ProtectiveIntelligence and Criminal
Investigations. He served for 11 years at the White House on the
Presidential Protective Detail for Ronald W. Reagan, George H. Bush,
William J. Clinton, and George W. Bush. He also spearheaded the
development of the Secret Service’s first public-private Partnership
initiative in the Bay Area.
He was at the forefront of the Dept. of Homeland Security’s effort to establish partnerships with
key government; public, private and international stakeholders relative to the IT security of their
critical infrastructures. Since 2005 he has been coordinating the public private partnership
outreach for the DHA SRI International Cyber Security Research and Development Center. He told
us that he enjoys speaking at Rotary meetings because he so believes in what Rotary stands for.
We are his third Rotary speaking engagement. He warned us that our government not create
laws that stifle innovation in Cyber Security. He was excited about the current administration’s
appointment of a Cyber Czar in the near future.
 Finally, he mentioned Billy Mitchell a change agent in the 1920’s who
 forecast the wider benefits of investing in “air” power. He also
 predicted Pearl Harbor and the war with Japan. He told us to replace
 the word ‘air’ with the work ‘Cyber’ and know that we are in a new world
 – where Cyber Security is essential to our very existence in this – our
 world without boundaries. It was a very interesting presentation.

Thanksgiving Invocation: Our meeting would not be complete without the annual Thanksgiving
Invocation from those 3 special men of the cloth – Pastor Paul Watermulder, Rabbi, Jay Miller and
Father Michael. We all felt very blessed to listen to their words of thanks.

            Rabbi Miller            Rev. Watermulder              Fr. Mahoney
