Bad Words

By Ralph Trenary Berthoud Recorder It’s a cliché that bumper stickers are a reflection of our society. Well, I was following one that was particularly deplorable the other day. Maybe you’ve also seen this piece of plastic in the back window of our neighbor’s pick-up topper, “The Only Good Politician is a Dead Politician.” Something unsettling has been taking hold in how Americans make decisions in our communities and nation. Even though the alternatives are troubling and ... Full Story

Are Newspapers More than Just News?

By Shari Phiel Berthoud Recorder Like many people, there are generally two times each year when I like to be more introspective, reflecting upon past accomplishments, disappointments and future plans and dreams – my birthday and the start of a new year. With the start of 2009, I thought not only about my own past and future, but the Berthoud Recorder’s as well. Last year brought with it several controversial stories along with other items, such as letters to the editor, special columns ... Full Story

Fitting Right in at Metro State

By Michael Hicks Berthoud Recorder The success Jasmine Cervantes enjoyed while playing basketball at Berthoud High School certainly wouldn’t suggest otherwise. However, even the 5-foot-6 point guard is surprised by how well she has adjusted to the college game. Maybe she shouldn’t be. In her first season playing at Metro State, Cervantes is among the team leaders in five statistical categories while having started 10 of her first 12 games. She ranks first on the team in assists (52), ... Full Story

Stars Hit the Bud: League-Leading Eagles Host CHL

The then-Eagles head coach knew, without a shadow of a doubt, that Northern Colorado would support the game even when others in the CHL pondered when, if ever, the overwhelming support that has inundated the Eagles since their inception would start to wane. It hasn’t, and for good reason. With every sellout game ... Full Story

By Michael Hicks Berthoud Recorder Last week, the news came down that for the first time since 1995 the Denver Broncos were without a coach. Just days after the team blew a three-game lead and lost the AFC West to the San Diego Chargers -- the first time they had ever lost a three-game division lead with three games to go -- Mike Shanahan was fired.
