Meek gets kicks from football, soccer

By Zant Reyez/The Johnstown Breeze

JOHNSTOWN – On Friday nights during the fall, as the stars give way to the lights of Peterson Field, a player in a number 14 Roosevelt football jersey stands on the sidelines.

When the Rough Riders score a touchdown, and the team and fans celebrate in unison, number 14 jogs onto the field with her blonde braids flowing from the back of her helmet.

Before senior Jessica Meek kicks the pigskin through the white bars of the goal posts for the extra point, she jumps.

“I kinda do it just as a warm-up type thing to get my muscles kinda warm again,” the 17-year-old said.

A web of wishes...and a really big spider ... decorate the yard at 416 Charlotte St. in Johnstown. Remember to keep your eyes peeled for spooks and trick-or-treaters Friday night. Don’t forget to buy candy, and while you are making your things-to-do list, Daylight Saving Time ends Sunday. Remember to “fall back” one hour and replace your smoke detector batteries.

JOHNSTOWN – Sometimes the final score doesn’t matter.

JOHNSTOWN – On May 8, Cole Cunningham had just gotten off early from his job in Mead, when his mother called to ask him to stop at Hays Market for hamburger meat.

The 22-year-old Cunningham was driving down Weld County Road 15 around 5 p.m. when he saw a scene that “looked a little bit different.”

He said he saw his friend Tim Frank stumbling around on the side of the road while talking on a cell phone.

Tim, along with his brother Dan Frank, and their cousin Paul Frank, had all been electrocuted in a farming accident.

By Zant Reyez/The Johnstown Breeze

JOHNSTOWN – With less than two minutes off the clock in the first quarter, Roosevelt was up 7-0 over Berthoud at Peterson Field on senior night. Sophomore quarterback Cameron Hurtado scored on a 7-yard run, and RHS looked to have an easy road to claim its third straight conference title.

But looks can be deceiving under the Halloween moon.
