After 30-plus years, Linda Daly to leave the classroom

By Zant Reyez/The Johnstown Breeze

JOHNSTOWN – At 8:10 a.m. on Thursday, March 13, the sound inside Letford Elementary School is at a moderate level. The Faculty has about 20 minutes before students enter the halls, and the decibel levels surge upward.

From the main office, a few turns left, past posters and artwork crafted by students, and miniature lockers, across from the bathroom and a drinking fountain, is Linda Daly’s second-grade classroom.

Mrs. Daly, as she’s known around the halls and playground of Letford, has been a fixture at the school for 24 years. Her total years of teaching exceed 30. But like recess and lunch, everything must come to an end and Daly will retire at the end of this school year.

She will miss the students.

JOHNSTOWN – A bit shorthanded at a meet that took place after Spring Break got underway, Roosevelt High School still had a number of medal-worthy performances at last Saturday’s Bulldog Invitational at University High School in Greeley.

Sophomore Alyssa Rhoton collected two medals by placing third in the 100-meter hurdles (16.83 seconds) and 300 hurdles (50.92).

Junior Christian Sanchez provided Roosevelt’s best finish, taking second place in the boys’ shot put (36 feet, 8 1/2 inches).

Milliken board approves changes to flood plain map

By Zant Reyez/The Johnstown Breeze

MILLIKEN – At last Wednesday night’s Milliken Board of Trustees meeting, a new flood plain map was approved by a 6-1 vote.

The only Trustee to vote against the item was Jordan Jemiola. Prior to the vote, he said there are parts of the map he felt could be more “comprehensive.”

Mayor Pro Tem Julie Cozad said her reason to vote for the map was weighing the pros and cons of the item and, to her, the pros outweighed the cons. One of the pros Cozad gave was the additional safety for those living in a flood area.

Loveland man dies in accident by WCR 17

By Martin B. Hamilton/The Johnstown Breeze

A 30-year-old man from Loveland died April 8 while working near the bridge on Weld County Road 17 north of Johnstown where it crosses the Big Thompson River.

Weld County Sheriff’s Office Bureau Chief Steve Reams said, Gabriel H. Hernandez, an employee of Gopher Excavation Inc. of Berthoud, was using a gas-powered chop saw to cut through pipe.

The saw “bucked back and struck him in the neck/chest area,” Reams said. “It was a freak thing. He was dead at the scene.”


Ditches all right after last fall’s flood

But another deluge might be on its way

Most irrigation ditch systems in the Johnstown-Milliken area, despite the devastation throughout the area, made it through last fall’s Front Range Flood with minimal damage.

Being proactive helped, said Gary Lebsack, Johnstown’s mayor pro tem and agriculturalist who regularly attends ditch company board meetings.

“There were some companies that had problems. But to my understanding, everything is fixed,” he said.
