This Kid Rocks

JT Ellingson of Johnstown performed a guitar solo as the opening act for Kid Rock and Joan Jett at Cheyenne Frontier Days. He got the opportunity for the solo by winning the grand prize in the My Kid Rocks competition. JT submitted a one-minute video of a solo guitar performance, and his video was selected out of many from Colorado and Wyoming. He beat out four other finalists to earn the gig.

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.
