Uneven precipitation causes problems in mountains and plains – Greeley Tribune
100 years ago, for the first week of August 1922, from the pages of the Republican newspaper, the Greeley Tribune:
• At Greeley Traffic Court, a man was watching the hearing and had parked his car by a fire hydrant in front of a traffic building. He was fined $5.
• The heavy rains and lack of rain in some areas have had strange effects on this area. Because so little rain has fallen in the mountains, the Cache la Poudre river has not risen at all. At the same time, very heavy rains in eastern Weld County have caused some dams to collapse.
• A local politician, Charles Wheeler, said he was sure he would win back state office if he could find a way to abolish useless holidays. Like Colorado Day, for example. “The only people who have the day off are government employees.”
• Scrap leather from New England shoe mills is shredded and shipped south or out here west to be used as fertilizer.
• In a speech here at Colorado State Teachers College, Dr. Edward Steiner some overzealous American patriots. dr Born in another country, Steiner said he moved to America and loves the country. “But I’ve lost some respect for the flag because of the young patriots I’ve seen forcing others to kneel and kiss the flag.”
• A Greeley man was arrested by the sheriff for stealing four cars in Greeley one afternoon. He was followed after stealing the fourth car. The other three cars were found parked on the outskirts of town. The suspect’s doctor told the sheriff that the suspect’s actions could be linked to his mental state.
• The heaviest rains of the year fell in northern Weld County Tuesday night. Nunn, Pierce and Purcell had two to three inches of rain that night. A two-foot flood closed the road between Greeley and Cheyenne.
• In another attempted car theft, a man was seen trying to start a car south of Ault. The owner shouted at the thief, sho told him if he got too close he would bang his head against a post. The man was arrested and later told the judge he found no one near the car and thought it was abandoned. “And so it should have been the property of the first person to find it.”
