Lady Rider golfer in top 10 again

By Martin B. Hamilton/The Johnstown Breeze

MILLIKEN – She had her own fans following her Monday at The Mad Russian Golf Course.

Not that girls’ golf gets a lot of attention at Roosevelt High School, but junior Mariah Prado-Sellers should be noticed for her play this season in the Tri-Valley League.

She shot a career-best 94 Monday, and notched her third top-10 result this season, in helping the Lady Riders to a 319 team total and a fourth-place finish.

Juniors Diana Stevens and Taylor Roth respectively shot 106 and 117 while senior Natalie Enriquez carded 119. 

STEM classes sprout skills

Roosevelt students develop tools for life

JOHNSTOWN – Before addressing his class, Roosevelt High School teacher Jeremy Yarrow kills a compressor humming slightly in the background.

Just over a dozen students sit at varied workstations. Some are building robots, while others construct elaborate “fischertechnik” (flexible construction) models; all the while they’re making connections.

Down the hall, just past Dedication Way, RHS teacher Daniel Joiner works with his students in the other half of Roosevelt’s Science Technology Engineering and Math, or STEM program.

Local Portraits: Meet John and Janet Liniger

By Lois Brown/For The Johnstown Breeze

If you ask John and Janet Liniger how Johnstown has changed the most over the years, they’ll both answer, “The population.” Looking southward from their home of 51 years, they can see the rows of houses that make up Carlson Farms and Corbett Glen Subdivisions instead of the wide-open fields that used to be there.  

They are both quick to emphasize that they enjoy the many friendships they’ve made with newcomers to the community, and think that the population boom has been positive for Johnstown. What they regret is the loss of “ruralness” to the area.  

“I left for work one day and both roads were dirt, and when I came home that night, County Roads 17 and 50 were paved,” Janet said.  “And I cried!”

Fast-thinking youth responds to child’s peril

Johnstown girl, 12, sees 4-year-old fall from second-story window

By Martin B. Hamilton/The Johnstown Breeze

JOHNSTOWN – Thanks to the quick thinking of a 12-year-old girl, a little girl received immediate attention after falling from a second-story window on Easter morning.

Reported to the Johnstown Police Department at 8:39 a.m. Sunday, the incident happened in the 3000 block of Cedarwood Lane in the Thompson River Ranch subdivision.

In a news tip by her mother to The Johnstown Breeze, Aimee Lee, 12, had just let her dogs outside, “and she came in screaming that the girl next door fell out the window and hit the concrete,” Becky Lee said. “I looked out the window, and (the 4-year-old) was curled up in a ball on the concrete slab.”


Council hears from residents

By Wesley Reyna/The Johnstown Breeze

JOHNSTOWN -- Council heard from members of “The Community That Cares” during Monday’s meeting.

Anita Comer and Clair Hull spoke regarding wildlife and the annual BBQ Day celebration, both of which are topics of great importance to Johnstown.

An area of land that runs along the Big Thompson River and along Larimer County Road 3 that is home to an array of wildlife is also the site of potential residential development.

Council received a handout and heard from Comer on behalf of local residents regarding concerns that development could damage the local habitat of multiple creatures.
