Last year, the team went 0-3 in pool play, putting a damper on a highly successful season. But Berthoud wasn’t about to let that happen a second year in a row.

Playoff Seeding Road is Weird, Winding

By Michael Hicks Berthoud Recorder Remember a couple of weeks ago when I wrote about how the seeding would be determined in the 3A state football playoffs? 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?

Mountain Lions at Home in Colorado

By Deborah Huth Price Berthoud Recorder An old poster titled “Daydreams” features a housecat dreaming of all the big cats in the wild—possibly its ancestors from centuries ago. The average housecat, while in many ways sharing characteristics of its larger relatives, is a pet and has adapted to human attention and household living. Mountain lions face a different type of adaptation. As one of the top predators in the country, they are definitely not pets. With the increased number of ... Full Story
