Putallaz fifth, Riders 21st at state meet

By Zant Reyez/The Johnstown Breeze

Seven Roosevelt wrestlers made the trip to Denver for the 2015 Colorado State Wrestling Championships at the Pepsi Center.

RHS finished 21st in the tournament. Senior Nathon Putallaz was the lone Rider to place. He ended his RHS wrestling career on Saturday finishing fifth in the 265-pound weight class after pinning Windsor’s Tyler Shubert.

Freshman Bo Slaymaker (106) started everything off for RHS Thursday night with a pin over Felix Cano of Glenwood Springs.

Slaymaker, Putallaz and senior Dustin Hayden (145) were the only Riders to win their opening-night matches.

Drawing with Drew

Mason Vider is a senior at Roosevelt High School. An assignment in his speech class was to “job shadow” someone in a career he has an interest in. Mason, who has cerebral palsy, wants to be a cartoonist. He called us at The Breeze. We don’t have a staff cartoonist, but boy do we know one of the best. Tuesday, nationally known award-winning sports cartoonist Drew Litton, whose work appeared in The Rocky Mountain News for nearly three decades and which now appears in the Chicago Tribune, the Boulder Daily Camera and on KUSA 9News and ESPN.com, drove up from Denver and spent the afternoon with Mason at the high school. They talked about art and cartoons, how Drew got his start, looked at Mason’s work and then created a cartoon together. At the end of the afternoon Mason remarked that he had gotten “to meet a real cartoonist.” Litton reached out, shook his hand, and said “so did I.” Photo by Matt Lubich

Brothers lead wrestlers to state tourney

by Zant Reyez/The Johnstown Breeze

WINDSOR –  The atmosphere was nothing short of electric inside of Windsor High School Saturday for the final day of the 4A District Three Regional Wrestling Tournament.

From 11 a.m. to just after 8 p.m., wrestlers from 12 teams took to the mats in hopes of being in the top-four at the end of the night to move on to the Pepsi Center for the Colorado High School State Wrestling Tournament, which started today.

For Bo Slaymaker, Blake Slaymaker, Derek Golden, Harley Bending, Dustin Hayden, Logan Newcomb and Nathon Putallaz, the atmosphere, the sweat left on the mat, the drive to be standing  on the podium, the cheers from the Rider faithful, will be felt again throughout the three-day state tournament.

Ground broken on new church in Thompson River Ranch

The Johnstown Breeze

This past Sunday, church members and people from the community gathered together to partake in a short ceremony commemorating the groundbreaking for the Abundant Life Tabernacle church facility that is being built at 5450 River Ranch Parkway in the Thompson River Ranch subdivision.

At the Feb. 8 event, Pastor Dieter Skowron shared his vision for the church of “loving God and loving people.”

Twenty years ago, the Skowron family started a church in Johnstown off Country Acres Drive, and the church has since grown enough to prompt the building of this new 500-seat facility.

Trustee's potential conflict of interest discussed at meeting

By Zant Reyez/The Johnstown Breeze

MILLIKEN – At the Jan. 28 board meeting, by a 6-1 vote, Milliken trustees decided to go with the company ProCode for the town's building department services. The lone vote no was from Trustee Linda Beck.

Almost a month later, the item was back before the board at Wednesday night’s meeting, because of a question of potential conflict of interest stemming from Trustee Ken Kidd and ProCode President Jonathan Gesick’s previous relationship.

The Johnstown Breeze

MILLIKEN – Permanent flood repairs on the bridge over the Big Thompson River on State Highway 257, just south of the Mad Russian Golf Course, will mean the full closure of that stretch for a little less than a month starting March 16.

Plans for the project were announced Wednesday by the Colorado Department of Transportation.


JT Council considers community center options

By Danielle Ross/The Johnstown Breeze

JOHNSTOWN – “How are we going to build this thing?” Mayor Mark Romanowski said to the Town Council Monday night at a work session dedicated to discussing a potential community center. “What funding mechanism, and how large, and what are we trying to accomplish?

“I’m going to leave it open for discussion to get some ideas from you guys,” Romanowski said to his fellow councilmembers. “Where do we go from here?”

The initial meeting yielded no decisions. The only thing the council did agree upon was the need to reach out to a third party for consultation, rather than attempting to tackle the project alone.
