Rose Johnson – Pueblo Indicator – December 19, 1914 – Woman Kills Neighbor – Mrs. Rose Johnson Shot by Mrs. Susie Pearcy – Kiowa Women's Husbands Ride Home Together After Tragedy Over Kitchen Stove in Adjoining Homes – Pueblo, Colo. – Side by side on the Kiowa county prairies near Towner, forty miles from Eads, the county seat, and close to the Kansas line, the husbands and families of Mrs. Susie Pearcy and Mrs. Rose Johnson settled on government tracts years ago. They built their houses on adjoining corners and their friendship grew in the loneliness of their surroundings. Recently the two women quarreled over a stove Mrs. Johnson had sold to Mrs. Pearcy and Mrs. Pearcy pulled a revolver from the folds of her dress and killed her neighbor. Mrs. Pearcy is in the Pueblo county jail, charged with murder. She was brought here by Sheriff J. W. Blair of Kiowa county and Deputy District Attorney Charles B. Hughes filed a first-degree murder information against her, Kiowa county being in this judicial district. The shooting was witnessed by Mrs. Johnson's father and four children. Word was got to Eads and a coroner's jury held Mrs. Pearcy for the slaying. Sheriff Blair reached the Pearcy home and arrested the woman. Mrs. Pearcy claims that she acted in self-defense. She says Mrs. Johnson attacked her with a knife before she pulled the pistol. The quarrel began when Mrs. Pearcy declared the stove Mrs. Johnson sold her was not up to standard. She threw the stove over into the Johnson yard. Mrs. Johnson threw it back. After it had passed between them several times the shooting occurred. The husbands of the two women, meanwhile, were working side by side in the same gang. They are employed as bridge carpenters on the Santa Fe. When word came of the shooting they drove to their homes in the same buggy.

He recently retired from 20 years with the City of Pueblo Traffic and Communications Department. But by far, Buddy is best remembered for his extensive involvement in television and radio from 1954 to 1962. For eight years, he hosted a daily children's afternoon and television show, "The Buddy Johnson Show — Adventure's Club," on which over 100,000 local children appeared. He had a weekly evening live country music studio program, "The Barndance, Colorado Hayride," both on Pueblo's KCSJ-TV, now KOAA-TV. Also on television he hosted movies for two years on the late night "Western Star Theater." During the same period on KCSJ radio, he had a daily noon country music program and a weekly evening music show. He was involved in the creation of many annual local events from the Kid's Day Parade (which he hosted for many years), the Beulah Yule Log and the State Fair Breakfast. Buddy hosted and interviewed the many Western TV and motion picture stars who came to Pueblo during these years. At the same time, he owned and operated Gayway Park in Beulah (which he rebuilt around 1960), where for five years he presented weekly Sunday afternoon music shows, "The Beulah Jamboree." This variety show featured an extensive array of major country stars and first presented numerous Western performers who have since achieved wide national fame, such as Jim Ed Brown. For more than 40 years his Western-swing band, "The Colorado Rangers," with whom countless musicians have performed, was an annual fixture at regional parades, rodeos, and events all over Colorado and northern New Mexico. Recently, Buddy was secretary-treasurer of Tamarack Productions of Pueblo and appeared in the production of "Damon Runyon's Pueblo" as the sheriff. In appreciation for all his work in the entertainment industry in Colorado over many decades, he was inducted into the Colorado Country Music Hall of Fame, when he received the notable Pioneer's Award for his many contributions.
