Blood, tears and cheers

They stomp their feet on the Roosevelt High School gym floor in rhythm as the Riders run the court; fly in the air with the greatest of ease; cheer in times of victory and defeat; and, despite years of misconceptions, they’re athletic and smart.

They are not usually cheered for like other teams.

They are the RHS cheerleaders, and they recently won two competitions.

The student council volunteered at the food bank Nov. 21. After a tour of the facility, they helped package more than 1,700 pounds of diced tomatoes. MES teacher Zach Boettcher, who works with the student council, said students learned about the importance of donating, volunteering and giving back to others. The lesson was a school-wide one, as students at the school also held a food drive which brought in well over 1,000 items which were donated to the food bank. Other student council members who took part Nov. 21 included: Dallas Nix, Paige Strickland, Isabella Jordan, Emmy Golden, Nadia Aleman, CJ Rivera, Kara Salvi, Payton Eaton, Paulina Rangel, Hank Glasser, Caden Lawson and Janelle Kelton.

Lighting the way to further education

By Zant Reyez/The Johnstown Breeze

The simple yet timeless tradition of stringing lights around the Christmas tree may someday light the way for a Roosevelt senior’s future.

The Roosevelt High School League of Latin American Citizens (LULAC) Club is spearheading the Memorial Lights fundraiser, which allows folks to buy Christmas lights in memory of someone.

Money goes toward a scholarship to be given to a senior at the RHS awards night in May.

Can Hickenlooper get his middle-of-the-road magic back?

By Josh Zaffos/High Country News

Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper recently confirmed a fact that one of his interns unearthed — he’s the first governor in American history who was once a professional geologist....

...“Maybe that does allow me to operate in the middle on this issue,” says the governor, “and try to keep everyone at the table.”

Family, familia, ohana, porodica, ïîðîäèöà, ñåìüÿ

dylanBy Dylan Palm-Trujillo/For The Johnstown Breeze

Actor Michael J. Fox provided a good personal quote that touches my heart: “Family is not an important thing. It’s everything.”

This means a lot to me because family is something I cherish and hold dear to my heart. My family consists of my father, who is a Boulder police officer, mother, Heidi Palm, sister, Devyn Palm-Trujillo, and myself.

Family for me is basically like Jesus Christ, because without Him I wouldn’t be who I am today. And that goes the same for my family.

That is why we try to take family vacations with each other during the summer and winter seasons. As my mother puts it, “We try to get away from the reality of work, school, phone calls and enjoy one another.”


Vallejo captures his confidence


By Zant Reyez/The Johnstown Breeze

Lights, camera, action!

The three words everyone associates with what a director says right before the camera starts to roll.

One day, Roosevelt senior Nick Vallejo, 17, could be saying them to actors right before a scene in a major movie.

Vallejo could also be the man with the camera documenting a social issue in the United States or some place around the world.

For right now though, the spotlight shines on him, as he’s the Johnstown/Milliken Rotary Student of the Month for November.



'Tis the season to be cyber-cautious

The Johnstown Breeze

According to, nearly 197 million people in the United States are expected to do their shopping online in 2014, a big chunk of that in the days between Thanksgiving and Christmas.

As the holiday shopping season gets underway this week, the importance of avoiding hackers, phishing scams and phony websites while buying online becomes increasingly important.
