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.

By Zant Reyez/The Johnstown Breeze

JOHNSTOWN – Barrett Matthew Rabe, you’re about to complete your second year of life. You’ll be reaching the “terrible two’s” on Sept. 20.

Before the days of curiosity that come with that age; before you learn to use the bathroom on your own; before your mother, Jennifer Rabe, takes your first-day-of-school picture; before you fall off your bike after your father, Chris, takes off the training wheels, know this: You’ve already affected lives immensely.

See, you were born with a heart condition called aortic stenosis, which means not enough blood comes from your heart.

Riders shut out in championship game

By Zant Reyez/The Johnstown Breeze

BRIGHTON – It was a pitcher’s duel between Roosevelt’s Austin Trujillo and Prairie View’s Johnny Ramirez in Friday morning’s Northern Colorado Baseball League Championship game at Prairie View High School.

Through three innings, neither team produced much offensively. After a rocky first inning, Trujillo settled in, but Ramirez would be the victor in the end as the Rough Riders lost 8-0 in five innings.

After the game, Coach Alan Gibson found a silver lining in his team's play.

“I was really happy with our approach. We faced him just a couple of days ago and we didn’t look anything like that — we couldn’t touch him,” he said of Ramirez.
