Campus View: Pass the Passion

By Sarah Kay Hurst Berthoud Recorder As the first semester drew to a close, I found it hard to imagine leaving the tiny, bohemian dorm room we have come to call home. Within two weeks of starting college, I couldn’t be sure I had not lived there my entire life. I fell in love with my fascinating courses, with the ongoing festivity of activities after class, from French dancing to inspiring lectures, and with all the incredible new people I studied and laughed with over the course of four ...

Remembering Our Loved Ones

By Gary Wamsley Berthoud Recorder I had made myself some notes on some lighthearted topics for this week, but it is very hard to concentrate on those things after hearing the sad news about Justin Bauer. While it is always disturbing to hear about these kinds of tragedies, it is more poignant when it strikes so close to home and you know the soldier or the family.

Two Years Later: Ex-Berthoud Wrestlers Carron,

By Michael Hicks Berthoud Recorder Every time Tyler Carron drives down County Road 17, his mind flashes back to the night of Jan. 15, 2007, when he and fellow Berthoud High School wrestler Nikko Landeros were hit by another car as they tried to change the tire on the Isuzu Trooper they were riding in. At around 11:30 p.m. that evening their lives changed forever. They lost their legs after being pinned up against their vehicle by a fellow student following a school dance. Now, two years later, ...

With the win, Berthoud improved to 4-3 overall and 3-1 in the 4A Northern Conference. Berthoud held an 11-point lead until Frederick’s Emily Monarch finally got the Warriors on the board.

Berthoud Wrestlers Work Fast in Return from Break

By Michael Hicks Berthoud Recorder After Thursday’s wrestling match with Silver Creek, Berthoud head coach Scott Pickert talked about his Spartans being too hyped up, showing better conditioning and needing to work at a better pace and not being “super excited.” But considering Berthoud was wrestling for the first time in three weeks and was set for three straight days of competition, it’s pretty easy to understand why the Spartans were eager to get back on the mat. It was also easy to ... Full Story
