Letters to the Editor: Nov. 13, 2008

STATE COLLEGE FAIR I graduated from Berthoud High in 2007, and I vividly remember how overwhelming and time consuming searching for a college was. High school students have so much on their plate as they get closer to graduation. Many students are involved in clubs, sports, community service, jobs, school work, and being active with friends and family all while preparing for their future. It would be a great opportunity for students if Berthoud is able to host the In-state College ...

For those who went to war and came back, a part of them will forever remain in that place where those memories were made. On Nov. 11, America pays tribute to the millions of brave men and women who ... Full Story

New Friends

Ralph Trenary Berthoud Recorder   There are some challenges and peculiarities to moving back to your wife’s hometown, especially when her family has been here for over 140 years. I quickly realized that she can trump me hard on recognizing places and people.   For the first six months after we moved into the new house it was a regular experience to go out -- anywhere, anytime -- and she would talk to, or at least point out, three people she recognized.
