Historic Daniels School now officially historic

The Johnstown Breeze

MILLIKEN – In ceremonies Aug. 28, the Daniels school house along Colorado Highway 60 was dedicated as being listed on the National Registry of Historic Places.

The Registry is the official federal list of districts, sites, buildings, structures and objects significant in American history and worthy of preservation.

“The Daniels school house has made a contribution to the community of Milliken, to Weld County and to the state of Colorado,” a press release about last week’s event stated. “Being on the list is a governmental acknowledgment of its importance.”

Riders soar to win Friday night against Eagles

By Zant Reyez/The Johnstown Breeze

It’s been a while since the lights at Peterson Field fell gracefully upon my perfectly cut green body, tattooed with white yardage markings and a black “R” on my heart.

Nine months to be specific, since the Roosevelt Rough Riders football team dug their cleats into my skin and found their way into my dirt-laced blood. The last time I saw the Riders, my tattoos were invisible because of November snow resting on me, and the arctic temperature chilling my very soul.

For those about to rock

By Zant Reyez/The Johnstown Breeze

With the crowd gazing up at the stage as their individual cheers collide to form one gigantic roar, as the stage lights engulf and silhouette those with guitars in their grips, drumsticks spinning through fingers…

For 41-year-old Johnstown resident Adam Montano, the rush from the crowd as he performs music is a dream that’s been envisioned in his mind since he was in elementary school.

From a dream to a rock ‘n’ roll reality, Montano is now the rhythm guitar player in the band Heatseeker, named after AC/DC’s 1988 song from the album “Blow up Your Video.”

Library director begins new chapter

By Kristi Plumb/The Johnstown Breeze

“It’s about the people.”

For 40 years, this has been Pat Betz’s ultimate counsel as a librarian. As news spreads of her retirement, surprise and disbelief are seen on the faces of her patrons and co-workers.

“Pat IS the Johnstown Library. She has been its very fiber and existence for roughly 40 years,” said librarian Anna Geisenhoff.

Friend and former co-worker Barb Sloan adds, “It will not be the same without her cheerful smile and welcome greeting as I enter the building.”

No decision on proposed Pioneer Ridge pipeline

By Matt Lubich/The Johnstown Breeze

JOHNSTOWN -- The Pioneer Ridge homeowner's association board of directors decided Wednesday night to table a decision and gather more resident input regarding whether they will sell open space just west of homes there for a proposed oil transportation pipeline.

Pioneer Ridge HOA president Jon Naiman announced the decision at the outset of the board meeting, where more than 100 residents in the 725-home subdivision packed a room at Pioneer Ridge Elementary School.

"We've come to the conclusion that the board isn't reaching everyone we need to about this and we as a board need to rethink how to approach this," he said.


Rough Rider Review: Riders take on Wizards Friday night at home

By Zant Reyez/The Johnstown Breeze

The Roosevelt High School football team is coming off a dominating 50-12 season opening win over Thompson Valley High School last Friday.

At 7 p.m. Friday night at Peterson Field, RHS (1-0) will host seventh ranked 4A team, Windsor. The Riders find themselves ranked sixth in the same Colorado High School Athletics Association poll.

Friday will be the Wizards’ first game of the season.

Film don’t lie

Last Friday the Riders rushed for over 400 yards as a team, which is not only a credit to the running backs, but to the offensive line.


Bridge work requires closure of Hwy. 257

The Johnstown Breeze

MILLIKEN – Permanent flood repairs on the bridge over the Big Thompson River on State Highway 257, just south of the Mad Russian Golf Course, will mean the full closure of that stretch for a little less than a month starting Sept. 14, according to a press release from the Colorado Department of Transportation.

When the floods of September 2013 hit, the approaches to this bridge were washed out, making the road impassable. Those approaches were put back during the emergency repairs. The work planned starting Sept. 14 will rebuild those approaches and abutments back so that future high water will not wash the bridge out again.
