Former Berthoud Resident Always on the Run

But approximately five years ago, the former Berthoud resident took his daily exercising a step further. He decided he wanted to qualify for the Boston Marathon. “At the age of 47, 48, I started picking up ... Full Story

BHS Seniors Cherish Big Opportunity

By Taylor Lee Berthoud Recorder DENVER –– Being on a team that makes it to the state tournament is a pretty invigorating experience. Berthoud’s five senior volleyball players know just what it’s like, and some of them were fortunate to experience it twice. Last year, the team went 0-3 in pool play.

How Berthoud, despite finishing third in the Tri-Valley Conference, was going to play on the road no matter what in the first round? How Berthoud, despite being highly ranked most of the season, might be headed for a first-round trip to Palisade, some four hours away? How Berthoud, because of the way the Colorado High School Activities ... Full Story
