On Butterflies of Wisdom today, Best-Selling Author, Win Kelly Charles and Juan Carlos Gill welcomes Michael Sage Hider. Michael obtained a BS degree in Metallurgical Engineering from the University of Cincinnati, an MA degree in Philosophy from the University of Toledo, and a Juris Doctor degree from Santa Clara University. He also pursued studies at Ohio State University, San Jose State University, and Stanford University. As a United States Air Force Officer, he conducted hypervelocity impact studies at Eglin Air Force Base and was involved in underground nuclear tests at the Nevada Test Site. After being honorably discharged from the Air Force, he took employment with Fairchild Semiconductor as a silicon crystal growing engineer. Hider then moved to employment with Lockheed Missiles and Space Co. as an aerospace engineer developing heat-resistant materials for Trident submarine missile reentry bodies. While at Lockheed he coauthored a widely accepted technical paper entitled The Protection of Beryllium in a Salt-Moist Environment. Hider left engineering for a career in law. He was a trial attorney for eleven years in Merced County California, where he then ran for and was elected Superior Court Judge. During his several terms as Presiding Judge, he presided over a Master Calendar that included civil, criminal, probate, and juvenile cases. After seventeen years, he retired from the Merced County Superior Court Bench and moved to Southern California. However, as he is fond of saying, “his body rejected retirement.” He now sits on the Riverside County Superior Court Bench, working three days per week as a Mandatory Settlement Conference Judge. In 2010, the Southwest Riverside County Bar Association selected him as Judicial Officer of the Year. Hider has taught courses in science, philosophy, and/or law at Merced Community College, Chapman College, and the University of San Francisco Master’s Program. He and his wife, Eileen, have four children, two daughters-in-law, a son-in-law, and the nine most wonderful grandchildren anyone could possibly have!
