Yes, For Once I Agree with CHSAA

By Michael Hicks Berthoud Recorder I’ve been openly critical of how the Colorado High School Activities Association decides which classification schools play in for various sports. Most of the time it is determined by enrollment size, but not always. Berthoud High School, for a matter of fact, plays most sports in 4A.

Actually Enjoying Your Holiday Season

By Megan Reece Berthoud Recorder Christmas is a stressful time for some people. With shopping, cooking, visiting and wrapping presents, time that is already short is stretched even thinner. You know that constant stress is anything but healthful. Long-term, low level stress has been attributed to high blood pressure, a higher risk of contracting colds and the flu, headaches and intestinal – ahem – issues. Constant stress will not help you with your workouts or with healthful eating ... Full Story

"Death From the Skies" Good Astronomy Fun

By Jamie Folsom Berthoud Recorder “Death From the Skies! These are the Ways the World Will End” By Philip Plait, PhD Viking Press, 2008 326 pages If the title and cover of this book seem like a cheesy Cold War era, space monster movie, that’s because it kind of is – quirky, funny, strange and entertaining. It’s also deadly serious stuff. “Death From the Skies” is hard science meant to address hard questions and fears people have. How long until our Sun dies? ... Full Story

However, aside from some shallow discussions about the nature of fine art, that’s where the focus on art ends.
