Super score

Tannor Shuffler (#23) blocks while Nick Wall reaches for the end zone for a touchdown in the second quarter of the Pop Warner Super Bowl game Dec. 12 in Florida. Shuffler and Wall, eighth-graders at Milliken Middle School, and Trent Beall, an eight-grader at Resurrection Christian School, all of Johnstown, are part of the Loveland Titans. The Titans faced the Port St. Lucie (Florida) Pirates in the championship game. Wall scored two touchdowns, carrying three defenders for more than 10 yards into the end zone for the go-ahead score late in the fourth quarter, but the Pirates would score again, however, to wrest away a 20-16 victory for the 2014 D-II Jr. Midget Championship.

Rotary project warms hearts and kids

The Johnstown Breeze

It was on a cold January day when Michael Wailes of Johnstown had a heart-warming idea.

He was at Letford Elementary School last January to pick up his daughter, Ella, from her afternoon kindergarten class.

“I remember the wind was really blowing hard that day and it was cold,” Wailes said. “When the bell rang and kids started coming outside to line up for the buses; so many of them were standing there with no coat, just shivering.” Wailes mentioned it to his wife, Nicole, and she said she had seen the same thing many times during the daily ritual of collecting their daughter.

Depression era photo project has Weld ag roots

The little Hispanic girl stares at the photographer in the black and white photo. She stands with her back to an adobe brick wall, her dress neat, her dark eyes filled with suspicion.

“The mother said, ‘I keep her dressed nice every day because she is the only girl I’ve got.’ Great Western Sugar Company’s beet sugar workers’ colony at Hudson, Colorado,” photographer Jack Allison wrote in September of 1938 in the original cutline when he took the photograph.

More than five dozen photographs of rural agricultural life in Weld County during the late 1930s and early 1940s are now easily accessible as part of a project recently completed by Yale University.

Yaking’ gets RHS phones put away

By Zant Reyez/The Johnstown Breeze

JOHNSTOWN – Words can be like a warm summer day. They can bring us delight and a placid feeling.

Other times words can be like a thief in the night and rob us of security, trust and self-worth.

For some students at Roosevelt High School, words they left on the social media app called Yik Yak last week have led the RHS administration to strictly enforce the school’s policy of no cell phone use or visibility during school hours.

The Roosevelt High School football team collected nine all-Northern Conference selections last week — the most a team has collected in program history.

The entire offensive line: seniors Nathon Putallaz, Jared Hatch, Chico Hernandez, along with juniors Alonso Archuletta and Andrew Kammerzell, were selected.

On the defensive side, junior linebacker Christian Majszak and seniors Adrian Pastrana, Jesus Castillo and Christian Sanchez rounded out the nine Riders.


Marijuana in Milliken on November's ballot

By Zant Reyez/The Johnstown Breeze

MILLIKEN – Another extension of a temporary moratorium on medical marijuana related facilities in town came before the Town Board at its Dec. 10 meeting.

But instead of the moratorium again simply being passed, trustees also voted to put the broader issue of allowing marijuana sales and manufacturing in general in town on next November’s ballot.

Trustee Jordan Jemiola said another moratorium was kind of “kicking the can,” and he wanted a decision made on the issue.

The issues that will be on the ballot are use, distribution, manufacturing and taxes. Taxing will be its own separate item on the ballot.


More drilling coming to Johnstown

By Danielle Ross/The Johnstown Breeze

JOHNSTOWN -- The community will soon be home to a rather large Synergy Resources Corporation horizontal drilling operation.

At Monday’s Johnstown Town Council meeting, Synergy received approval for a use by special review permit, and will be allowed to begin the operation in 2015.

The well site will contain eight new horizontal oil and natural gas wells three-quarters of a mile south of Weld County Road 46 and a quarter mile east of Telep Avenue, a few hundred feet from an existing well site.

Synergy’s permit was approved with the addition of certain conditions to prevent visual and noise obstructions in Johnstown.
