Meek gets kicks from football, soccer

By Zant Reyez/The Johnstown Breeze

JOHNSTOWN – On Friday nights during the fall, as the stars give way to the lights of Peterson Field, a player in a number 14 Roosevelt football jersey stands on the sidelines.

When the Rough Riders score a touchdown, and the team and fans celebrate in unison, number 14 jogs onto the field with her blonde braids flowing from the back of her helmet.

Before senior Jessica Meek kicks the pigskin through the white bars of the goal posts for the extra point, she jumps.

“I kinda do it just as a warm-up type thing to get my muscles kinda warm again,” the 17-year-old said.

A web of wishes...and a really big spider ... decorate the yard at 416 Charlotte St. in Johnstown. Remember to keep your eyes peeled for spooks and trick-or-treaters Friday night. Don’t forget to buy candy, and while you are making your things-to-do list, Daylight Saving Time ends Sunday. Remember to “fall back” one hour and replace your smoke detector batteries.

JOHNSTOWN – On May 8, Cole Cunningham had just gotten off early from his job in Mead, when his mother called to ask him to stop at Hays Market for hamburger meat.

The 22-year-old Cunningham was driving down Weld County Road 15 around 5 p.m. when he saw a scene that “looked a little bit different.”

He said he saw his friend Tim Frank stumbling around on the side of the road while talking on a cell phone.

Tim, along with his brother Dan Frank, and their cousin Paul Frank, had all been electrocuted in a farming accident.

By Zant Reyez/The Johnstown Breeze

MILLIKEN – Milliken Trustees and staff have narrowed the field for two open positions with the town.

Over the weekend, staff and trustees interviewed candidates for the town administrator position and the town planner position.

Officials are in negotiations with a candidate for the administrator position, and an offer letter has been sent to the top candidate for the town planner job.

Acting town manager Cheryl Powell said a decision on both jobs should be made in the next few days.


Rolling Hills raid was part of bigger drug investigation

By Matt Lubich/The Johnstown Breeze

JOHNSTOWN – A Friday night real-life episode right out of “Cops” in a quiet Rolling Hills Ranch subdivision neighborhood several weeks back was part of a half-year-long investigation into methamphetamine sales and distribution in Northern Colorado, authorities are now saying.

A Johnstown man was among those arrested.

Neighbors said SWAT teams, with their guns drawn, served a warrant at about 7:30 p.m. Oct. 10 on a home in the 1900 block of Greenbriar Court. At the time, investigators released little information, saying only that the individual they were looking for was not at home but had been taken into custody elsewhere.
