New Milliken officer fulfills lifelong dream

By Zant Reyez/The Johnstown Breeze

MILLIKEN – Think back to your kindergarten days and try to remember what the answer was when asked what you wanted to be when you grew up.

For many people, our hopes and dreams about what we’re going to do change over the years.

Not so for Ryan King.

“I’ve always known what I wanted to do,” King said.

Wizards put spell on RHS

By Zant Reyez/The Johnstown Breeze

Maybe before the members of the Windsor Wizards girls' basketball team left their school before heading to Johnstown, they concocted a potion or spell that enabled them to run the basketball court a little faster and shoot the ball just a tad better.

Whether it was a spell, a potion or some other kind of wizardry, Windsor flew up and down the Roosevelt basketball court Tuesday night and jetted back home with a 57-21 win.

RHS (5-9, 0-5 in the Tri-Valley) was stonewalled in the first quarter and only scored three points, while the Wizards put up 14.

New clinic, same level of care

By Zant Reyez/The Johnstown Breeze

JOHNSTOWN – Since 2007, if folks in Johnstown or Milliken were feeling a little under the weather or just needed a check-up, there was a good chance Drs. J. Matthew and Cara Brown were the ones they’d see at Banner Health Clinic.    

Now the couple will be packing up and crossing Johnstown Center Drive to set up at a new clinic, Family Physicians of Johnstown, located in Johnstown Center.

The clinic is a part of Family Physicians of Greeley, and the Browns are excited about their new opportunity.

Community center to house TRPR, Barker Clubhouse

By Lynn Klyde-Silverstein/The Johnstown Breeze

This time next year, Milliken will be home to a new community center for use by the Thompson Rivers Parks and Recreation District and the Boys and Girls Clubs of Weld County.  

The center will include two game-size basketball/volleyball courts, as well as office space for the TRPR. The Boys and Girls Club will have its own office space, a computer lab and lounge.

The project, slated for Centennial Lake, was first envisioned as a field house, but it has grown into more of a community center, TRPR Executive Director Clint Dudley said.



The Executive Committee of Frontier Academy in Greeley is pushing for a new security policy that would arm staff members at each of the school’s two campuses. What do you think of the idea?

Erie outshoots Roosevelt

By Zant Reyez/The Johnstown Breeze

Every Rough Rider has its quarter. So does every Tiger.

On Tuesday night, the Tigers of Erie just had a few more quarters than the Riders of Johnstown, as they left the Roosevelt High School gym with an 82-64 win.


Riders wrestlers hang with the best

By Zant Reyez/The Johnstown Breeze

With less than a month left until the Colorado high school wrestling state championships at the Pepsi Center, many wrestlers got a dress rehearsal over the weekend of things to come.

On Friday and Saturday, the Roosevelt wrestling team was one of 33 teams competing in the Top of the Rockies tournament at Centaurus High School in Lafayette.

RHS finished 27th with a score of 40.00.


A view of Johnstown through the eyes of a new resident

By Orval "JB" Emery/For The Johnstown Breeze

After viewing a house I really liked in another town, my realtor told me of another he wanted me to see. I was a bit concerned. The market is moving like greased lightning, and if we spent the hour or so to view one more house I might lose this one. 

We drove in from the east on State Highway 60. The old brick buildings, sidewalks, just the feel of the town reminded me of many small towns in my home state of Kansas. As we rolled past Parish Avenue, I saw the small hometown Hays Market. On the north side of the road I saw a few of the older houses that add a beautiful flavor to any town. On through the rest of the town and past the 7-11, we came to Colorado Blvd. We drove a little further to a beautiful white church and turned left into what became my new neighborhood. It had just fallen out of contract. A little earnest money and the rest is history.
