One last Ride for quintet

By Zant Reyez/The Johnstown Breeze

JOHNSTOWN – Sometimes the final score doesn’t matter.

On Tuesday afternoon at Nelson Farms Ball Fields, seniors Ashley Ortiz, Taylor Roth, Makayla Deeter, Sammie Downs and Mariah Lopez trotted out onto their home dirt for the very last time in Roosevelt Rough Rider softball uniforms.

Milliken Mural Made

Members of the RHS Interact Club worked with sixth graders from the Milliken Youth Community Leaders program and other volunteers to paint this mural on the side of The Cracked Egg along Broad Street last weekend. Interact Club members work with student in the MYCL program as mentors. “We felt this project would be great to get the kids involved and become a part of the community,” said Jasmine Ontiveros, vice-president of the Interact Club. The Breeze has shared a video of the work being done on our Facebook page. Photo provided by Leslie Schleiger

Tavizon has a head for the game

By Jacob Scott/The Johnstown Breeze

Leaders are hard to find, and selfless leaders are even harder to find. But the Roosevelt High School soccer team has found exactly that.

Senior Astwin Tavizon is the ideal leader that any team would kill to have. He is a talented scorer, a great passer and an overall humble kid.

Last year, as a junior,  Tavizon was named MVP of the Tri-Valley Conference and became the first Rough Rider to play in the All-State soccer game.

Tavizon, it seems, was destined to play soccer. He moved to the United States from Mexico when he was 4, and he began his soccer career when he moved to the States.

'God sent me to your garage to get stuff'

Man finds intruder in garage, brief chase, suspects still sought

By Zant Reyez/The Johnstown Breeze

MILLIKEN – Perhaps call it The Case of Delinquent Divine Direction.

Around 6 p.m. Monday night, a male homeowner in the 600 block of South Holly Court in the Frank Farms subdivision reported a robbery to the Milliken Police Department.

MPD Chief Benito Garcia said the owner saw a silhouette from his window walking toward his garage, and once he walked in, he saw a man in the garage.

According to Garcia, after the man asked the suspect what he was doing, the suspect said “God sent me to your garage to get stuff.”

JOHNSTOWN – Sometimes we need a little assistance when it comes to letting our passions flourish.

For Geoffrey Sauer, a 2008 Roosevelt High School graduate, that assistance came to him earlier this month through a grant through The Arts Alive! Fund.

He was awarded $3,000 and was one of seven Weld County artists to receive the honor.

“It was wonderful,” Sauer said, describing his thoughts when he learned he got the grant.


‘And the Youth Shall See Visions’

By Lynn Klyde-Silverstein/The Johnstown Breeze

Hundreds of high school students walked out of classes last week to protest what they considered inappropriate actions by members of the Jefferson County School Board.

Board member Julie Williams, who was elected last year, proposed a committee to approve curriculum for the county’s advanced placement history classes. Here’s what she wants to see in those classes:

“Materials should promote citizenship, patriotism, essentials and benefits of the free enterprise system, respect for authority and respect for individual rights. Materials should not encourage or condone civil disorder, social strife or disregard of the law. Instructional materials should present positive aspects of the United States and its heritage.”
