Mrs. Berthoud Thoughts for '09

By Ashlyn Bishop At the end of each year, it can be hard to resist the pull to set resolutions for the year to come. We reassess our priorities; finally take a look at the goals we made, yet ignored, or dream of the tiny, tangible steps we can take to become better or healthier people. I know it’s true because I am guilty of this process and this year is no different, except maybe I’ll accomplish them!

A Cup of Coffee and a Familiar Face

By Shari Phiel Berthoud Recorder There’s a familiar adage that says “the more things change, the more they stay the same.” That couldn’t be more true at the Jo-to-Go coffee shop on Highway 56 – new owners Tiffany and Peter Thorstensen have been here before, literally.

A few years later they approached then owner Mark Chaffee, who also owns and ... Full Story
