CREELEY (Colo.) TRIBL'XE Wed., MtyZS. 1977 -The weather Not what It seems Although it appears Greeley firemen art trying to combat an out-of-control house fire, it is actually a training session for firemen. The house, located at 625 4th St., was slated for destruction by Urban Renewal, and firemen said they would gradually burn down the structure while training during the next few days. (Tribune Photo by Mike Peters) Arraignments of out-of-state men continued in rooster fighting case Arraignments of 17 out-of- state men on a charge of killing animals in contest gambling were continued to 1:30" p. m.June 29 by Judge Andrew Borg in County Court Tuesday. The 17 were arrested May 1 when sheriff's officers, assisted by Ault and Pierce police, raided a north-Weld county farm building and found what they believed was the largest cock fight ever held in this part of Colorado. Nearly 100 persons were inside the building. The 17 out-of-state defendants are Charles Dale Williams, James Johnson, Fred L. Miller, Buster Childers, Budadshi Israngul, Donald C. Childers and Larry Wilcox, all of Cheyenne; James Cayton and John P. Gardner, both Wheatland, Wyo.; Merl 0. Parkinson reported 'happy 7 with Wackenhut position Former Greeley Police Chief John Parkinson said Tuesday he's very happy with his new job as area manager of Wackenhut Corp. -- the third largest private investigative agency in the U.S. Parkinson .went to work for Wackenhut in March of this year after resigning as Greeley chief of police. He left Greeley's department. early this year, shortly after several of his staff officers sent a letter of no confidence to the city manager. "I really enjoy working for a p r i v a t e o r g a n i z a t i o n , " Parkinson said. "It's much like running a police department, only I'm working for a private organization." Parkinson heads 150 investigators-in Colorado, Utah and Nebraska. His firm has contracts in Northern Colorado with the Platteville Nuclear Generating Plant and last week signed a security contract with the new steam generating plant in Brush. The company specializes in investigative work, and the guard service is a sideline. Leinweber, Douglas, Wyo.; Jay Dean I.einweber, Minatare, Neb.; Brian E. Bode and Robert Bode, both Lyman, Neb.; Timothy R. O'Neill, Sumner, Neb.; Dwight C. Medina, Scottsbluff, Neb.; Dallas Chartier, Benkelman, Neb.; and Chauncey Dewey, Brewster, Kan. Michael A. Lazar, deputy district attorney, said Wednesday morning it is anticipated more charges will be filed in connection .with the event. However, he said the cock fight was still under investigation with the focus being on who actually organized the affair, who furnished the birds and who actively engaged in gambling on the cock fights. "We're trying to be more selective and determine who the persons were who were actually participating in the event and were not just spectators," he said. In addition to the 17 out-of- state men arrested at the scene, 62 Colorado residents were identified and photographed, then released pending the possible filing of charges against them. Sheriff's officers reported the cock fight was being held in a building owned by the I. R. Booth Cattle Co. at the intersection of Weld roads 96 and 41. They said they found 14 dead roosters, 175 live roosters in individual cages, betting slips, leg bands, scales and a number of other items believed used in cock fight gambling.
