Robert Kolker Discusses 'Hidden Valley Road'
"Us about the Galvin family. Let's start with the parents. Don and Mimi there. The subject of this book Don really lived through the greatest moments of the twentieth century. He was a World War Two veteran and the two of them put down roots in Colorado after the war and raised a family and had twelve children. The twelve children's span the baby boom the. I was born in nineteen forty five and the last in nineteen sixty five and they were known in Colorado Springs. Colorado is sort of a model family. Everybody knew the Galvin's with their twelve children and the oldest was a football star and dated the general's daughter at the Air Force Academy and all of the boys were Jock simplisafe on every hockey game. They played they were sort of legends at the time but nobody really knew that privately. The family was suffering that that in the end six of the twelve children were diagnosed schizophrenia. And it was at a time in America where there was a lot of shame and stigma around mental illness. Even more than there is now where the parents were often blamed and so it was a secret for as long as they keep it a secret and that just lead to more damage and the youngest children in the family really suffered the most from living in that house full of secrets before we get into their stories. It's interesting that you say everyone knew the Galvin's in Colorado Springs. My cousin actually grew up in an air force family in Colorado Springs and had never heard of them and so it might be that. She's she's younger. She's in her forties now. But I'm curious how you came across this family and their story because you're not from Colorado Springs. Yeah their heyday was in the early years of the academy. Right after the academy opened in the mid fifties that was when the family really started to rise up so they were best known in the late fifties. I know about them because the youngest two children the only girls were friends of a friend of mine. And for years. These two sisters Margaret and Lindsey had been talking with one another about the best way to let the world know about their family but they realized they couldn't do it alone. There was a lot about their family. They didn't even know. I mean a lot of these brothers were fifteen or twenty years older than they were and then of course a lot of the medical records. They didn't have access to and a lot of the stories that their parents told they couldn't necessarily verify on their own. A lot of legends going around and in fact they some of the worst things that happened to the family had been kept from them kept secret from them because they were too young when it happened and so finally they decided to turn to an independent journalists to to cover the family independently to take the story wherever it would lead and they were confident in doing this because they felt that the there was scientific value medical value in focusing on this family and they knew that researchers had been talking to them for decades and they wanted to know what those researchers learned as. Well okay all families. Don't get along perfectly. And I imagine a family with twelve children. Probably even more so where they unanimous in their willingness to collaborate with you to answer your questions be interviewed well aside from being completely gobsmacked by the story and and really could not believe all. This happened to one family. I was pretty convinced in the beginning that there couldn't be a book about this because of medical privacy laws that all all it would take was one sibling standing up and saying what you WANNA book about this family no way and then suddenly it would get very impossible so I worked very Slowly and really took it very easy and over several months I would get on the phone. Maybe once a week with different family members saying so you know your sisters are interested in having a book about your family. How does that make you feel and sort of got took the temperature of the entire family and to my amazement everyone was interested in. Everyone was ready including Mimi. The family matriarch who had been so determined to keep everything secret for so long. She was in her nineties. Ready to talk about it too. She died in two thousand seventeen after you interviewed her. And I want to talk about that interview a little bit because as you mentioned earlier at that time schizophrenia was often blamed on mothers. Yes and and so. She was thrilled to be talking about it from a genetic perspective. You know. We're in the Arab genetics. Now so it it made her feel good to be able to say yes. Well now. We know that it couldn't have been bad parenting that it was genetics and so two that part she was happy but she was really part of her survival instinct and part of what made her so functional for so long was that she could really move past a lot of the unpleasantness in her life. So getting here to talk about unpleasant subjects was not easy and of course. I didn't WanNa get a ninety one or ninety two year old to to do anything. I didn't want to traumatize someone who was clearly in such frail health. So what proceeded was me sitting there at the kitchen table with her and her two daughters were at the table too and every time she would try to deflects the conversation. One of her daughter's would go. Oh Mom and and try to kind of cajole her gently back to talk about the unpleasant stuff and eventually she she was able to really open up about some very difficult things and I was really grateful to get that kind of clarity from her. Twelve children is difficult enough. I mean twelve children. Ten of them were boys even if they did not suffer from mental illness even during the baby boom. That's a lot of kids. Why did they have twelve children? I spent a lot of time sort of looking into that question for dom father. He was Catholic and he was looking for a distinguished life and he wanted to to stand out in some way and it made him feel good to be a pattern familias and so it pleased him to have so many children. And then Mimi who was like a lot of women in her generation a little frustrated that she couldn't intellectually really achieve dreams. She really gave up her college education and gave up and he sort of independent life to be a mother and she gave up a life of culture and sophistication moving out to the boonies which is Colorado was in the fifties to her as a sophisticated New Yorker and so she liked the being having a certain amount of notoriety and fame and accomplishment of having such a large family but more than that I think she was binging on family in a way because of a lot of the losses she had had in her life. She had lost her father when she was younger and a scandal he sort of became divorced from the family and she never really had a relationship with him. She now was in a marriage where the husband was increasingly absent. He was a career military guy who really created a life of the mind and was not an active parent like a lot of fathers in that time period and so really having so many children gave her a lot of company and I came to appreciate that aspect of it. So six of these kids. Six of the were ultimately diagnosed with schizophrenia. Which as I understand it typically emerges in adolescence or young adulthood it. Correct me if I'm wrong but we're there earlier signed. How did they first find out about the first child to be diagnosed? They suspect something was wrong. Well five of the six of them really followed that pattern. They were all twenty twenty one twenty two in late adolescence. When they had their first really visible psychotic breaks. There was one peter who was earlier he was fourteen he. There was real trauma right before that happened. He watched his father suffers stroke but the they were warning signs for for some of them for Donald. The oldest son he really was a very troubled teenager despite being out early so successful and so popular and he would do things like smashed dishes while washing the dishes out of rage or be overly almost gratuitously abusive to his younger brothers when he was left to take care of them. There are certain ways that he should have demonstrated that he wasn't connecting with the world in a traditional way in that it's almost like there is a barrier between him and others and that was very visible even in his teenage years. But it only devolved into psychosis. Once he was in college he would do things like run into a bonfire during a PEP rally or be cruel to animals. Th they were difficult moments that suddenly were wakeup calls to him. That something was really wrong and he started going to see therapists and his parents started shopping for a medical opinion. That could keep him in college and keep the family away from scandal.
Roger Stone's lawyers request new trial
"At this point and I think don Stenberg can certainly answer question better than me but I can't see her vacating the conviction because she seems to have a personal animus towards Roger I could see an appellate court maybe vacation the conviction and giving giving Roger a new trial yet so they go back to court do they have to go back to this judge you can they take it up to the about what what so my understanding of the next step is judge Jackson will rule on whether or not they'll be a new trial yeah then assuming she says no then Rogers attorneys can go to the appellate the appellate court and the appellate division can make a day when you're the fact you think that the president will wait that long we'll be just pardon Rajasthan I think he will wait actually I I didn't think I said so yesterday that I didn't think al was right when he predicted apartment has a sometimes you have space sports scores now we do we value to it you too where it got there we value to it no I was putting together a story from my bottom of the hour news cast that you might want to listen to the there may not on fake news I can make it I mean I don't want to make it up how's that I'd like to have the facts goads okay so the president didn't pardon my was wrong I took a guess the room number of people yesterday there was saying the president would pardon Roger store right after but if he's not in a way out yeah laid out and let's be fair and that's what we would like to make reelected that's what presidents should do yeah you know what's killing me why why are they trying in in in in DC what has that they should take these federal trials and put them in well you know don was at thirty Jan don Stenberg coming up at thirty general Nebraska put in Nebraska and Iowa put it anywhere but in DC New York or California worried it's very slow I mean if if get New Yorker California's where the supposed crimes were committed that's where the trial it should be but it's too yeah you know Jim should be held but these were these were incredibly unique circumstances here yeah yeah and and and the crime the cortical crime it's not like it was you know it's at don right there in DC was just more like international stages I mean it's it's a joke the she the judge I don't know why I bother writing a letter and I I I I really do a letter for me memory is a little funny you have the letter you want to write is not what they they it was it was not what his lawyers wanted to include right you want to comment mostly on the investigation and I included that my letter and they had me edit that out yeah really so I I I and we supposed to say so good it was of the good way right right right which I did but they had me cut out all the stuff about who am I said my letter is you know that to sentence Roger to prison time and they this is what they ended up coming out to the judge didn't see this but what was sensing Roger prison time it's send such a poor message to every prosecutor in the country because all it says is well if you're gonna send someone to prison for these process crimes all it says it to the prosecutor is find anyone that you want to put in prison and investigate them long enough and eventually they'll do something illegal right and I talked about the supposed victim in this case Randy Quetico and his obsession with Roger stone as long as I've known Randy which is at least ten years and I said this also sends a poor message to every mentally ill and her an alcoholic or drug addict out there who's obsessed with a high profile person because all it says is eventually you can get a prosecutor to take your bizarre claims seriously and they didn't want me to put that in there because ready also wrote a letter asking for prison time but I don't know why I bother because the judge basically said when she went through all the nice things that I and others said about Roger she said she wasn't taking that any of that into account so why not tell us that before we spent on ready every man what's going on I'm telling you seven fifteen with Joe Piscopo on the radio talking about that Roger stone case we will be full of following that I wanted to make sure I I mention this because to have Donald Trump the president of the United States speak at the at this a graduation ceremony for a program that helps former inmates reenter society and what was that called the name of it was called the it was a re entry what was in his London so they don't give them credit with the president praised bipartisan congressional passage of the criminal justice reform bill twenty eighteen he argued that the productive Lobo abiding former inmates will not be left behind and he had that such a crowd if you listen to that I I listen to them on the way and he was it was great it was fun he said you can't trust juries anyway not Benny went on it as a whole I read about Roger stone and it was great in my mind though at my age what I was thinking what I want to talk to the president about he's going to speak when speak last night was it was it not a Vegas he would not with eve I think Vegas is today it's Vegas today I was in the intifada the Colorado springs Colorado that was March I'm saying we got I don't think it point out that although I looked at Las Vegas is in Nevada but the other day so I'm I'm I'm I'm listening to this on the radio something in the president's in Vegas anything did prisoners who have been out who have done their time and they want to get back into society and say wow this is a Republican man this is bipartisan man this is big news about you not hear about today I'm probably the only ones chatting about you know but they did take that box carried it live and I'm listening to it it was great that's what I'm thinking because I'm old but I'm thinking like he's cutting who speak it for like ten thousand people and more in Colorado springs and he was very funny yes I've watched some because well I think his

Generations that we get to serve, them so we've enjoyed. Having, some of those families the, summer are, groups are very very loyal as Well I I, always referred to the you know the beautiful main tower almost a hundred years old and. We've had our wild cloud dancing in one of our ballrooms for over eighty years so there's not a lot of hotels nowadays that and especially domestically that can really have the, bragging rights of being, able to, serve generations, of families and also generations of groups which we, enjoy both you know and it's I think business has been wonderful for all resorts but ours has been particularly exciting because if you're honored enough, to be at a price Properly as long as I have you get. To see people come, back, that, really remember. And you know coming with their grandparents and coming with their parents and.

To come to the Broadmoor and celebrate whether it's you know to enjoy the children's carnivals that we put on or the rubber Ducky races or just the fact that they're able, to come as a, family and, make it, a tradition each year I think it's really very, very very special so our guests have been friends that we've been welcoming home each each And every summer and this year so exciting and with the US Senior Open I was really pleased and proud to get messages, from literally, all over the world people that were watching the Broadmoor Colorado Springs on TV and how beautiful it looked and in the memories that they were sharing either via Email or text or.

Place calls the Broadmoor hotel in Colorado Springs now you're talking about Labor Day not too far. Away During that part of the year already we typically do sell out, but we are not, completely sold out yet, so, we still have availability. Whether it's to come and enjoy the package and.

Enjoy very much res- restaurants and talking about lesson in just a moment how long is it going to stay open and we always.

Cabanas and the affinity edge looking. Over the mountains and we like to close somewhere in October first or, second week so it really is weather dependent if we, continue to have nice weather into the first. Week of October we may extend a? Little bit into the second week but it's usually right. About that activity Mark what is the end of the summer carnival On the north? Lawn was that all about and that is that is connected right with our Labor Day festivities so that's a that's another luring in.
