By Zant Reyez/The Johnstown Breeze

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.

Fifth-graders take football crown

By Zant Reyez/The Johnstown Breeze

MILLIKEN – At their purest form, sports are meant to be fun.

But other headlines in the sports section sometimes cloud the fun.

Last Saturday at Milliken Middle School, there were no major sports networks broadcasting. There weren’t 60,000 people filing into a stadium. There were just kids having fun playing football, with their parents and grandparents cheering like it was the Super Bowl — which it kind of was.

Community court means more meaningful sentences

By Danielle Ross/The Johnstown Breeze

Milliken is at the forefront of court innovation since its establishment of the Milliken Community Court in October 2011. The goal of the court is to handle municipal-level offenses, such as truancy, criminal trespass and curfew violations, among others, turning community problems into community solutions that all families and individuals in Milliken can benefit from.

In the less than three years that Milliken’s community court has been in effect, it has documented more than 750 community service hours. The court is located at the Milliken Meeting House building in downtown Milliken, which also houses the police station and social services office. The court operates the first and third Wednesday of each month, with a youth docket on the second and fourth Tuesday of the month. The vast majority of those involved in the program are youngsters.

Goalie shines in playoff loss

By Lynn Klyde-Silverstein/The Johnstown Breeze

CARBONDALE – Goalie Mike Kellogg broke his nose in last week’s final regular-season game for the Roosevelt boys soccer team.

But that didn’t stop him from shining in the team’s first-ever state playoff game.

The senior made 16 saves, including some beauties. But Roaring Fork was just too good as the Rams beat the Rough Riders 6-0 in the first round of the 3A State Tournament at Carbondale Middle School.

Watch live demonstrations of old-time crafts, browse and shop for crafts and food, and view old and new quilts on display (as well as buy one!) at the 13th Annual Stitches in Time Quilt, Craft, and Old Time Craft Demonstrations Show, Oct. 25 in Johnstown.

The one-day event, which is a fundraiser and educational project of the Johnstown Historical Society, offers a unique blend of activities.

One gymnasium of Roosevelt High School, where the event is held, is filled with all kinds of quilts.  Most of them – from antique to just-finished – are on loan, but some are for sale, and a special raffle quilt pieced and quilted by a local quilting group, The Sew Flakes, will be on display.  Tickets are $2 for one or $10 for six for the raffle quilt.  The drawing will be held at 3 p.m. at the show.
