Spring sports heading into final weeks

By Zant Reyez/The Johnstown Breeze

Even though the weather outside was frightful, postponing baseball and soccer games for the majority of last week, the skies were friendly for the most part on Saturday for the Randall Hess Invitational track & field meet at Roosevelt High School.

Eight teams joined the Rough Riders early Saturday morning for the meet. Loveland and Mountain View High School dominated the majority of the events, leading to the Mountain View girls taking first and the boys taking second. The Loveland boys took first, with their girls taking second.

The RHS boys took fourth, and the girls took third.

When life hits rough patches, more times than not, we seek out the one person who will hear our words and give us comforting ones in return.

For those who call Ben Schleiger a friend, more times than not he’s the one they go to during the hard times – and the good.

“It feels good to help them feel better,” Schleiger said about listening to his friends out.

Little libraries offer big reads By Jacob Scott/The Johnstown Breeze

There is a trend popping up all over the United States, and believe it or not, the trend is reading. More specifically, the reading is not on laptops or websites or on tablets, but in old-fashioned paper books … books found in little boxes that are more commonly known as little libraries.

These little libraries are nothing complicated. They look like bird houses but are filled with books, and those books are free to anyone who walks by and is interested in reading them.

But the little libraries are not only for taking; they are also for giving. Simply put ,you can take a book, and you can leave a book.

And that is just the case for some of the little libraries found in the Johnstown-Milliken area.

MILLIKEN – Milliken Police are investigating reports of B.B. gun damage to cars and businesses in town and are asking the public for help.

Thursday afternoon, the Weld County Sheriff's Office was reporting that a Johnstown man said his window was possibly shot out as he was traveling near Interstate 76.
