P.J. DiPentino Special to the Berthoud Recorder Have you ever seen the movie with Kevin Costner where he builds a baseball field, and people come from all over to play on it?

Recently I had the opportunity to become involved with a great group of people who operate the Boys and Girls Club of Larimer County. The ... Full Story

Lundberg Report: A Tribute in the Colorado House

Tuesday, Jan. 20, was a significant day. Not just because a president was inaugurated, but for the community of Berthoud and much of Northern Colorado it was the day we gave honor to a soldier who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Justin L. Bauer was laid to rest at Greenlawn Cemetery, east of Berthoud. Last week I led the House of Representatives in a moment of silent tribute for Staff Sgt. Justin Bauer.

Kale, Yes! Two Tasty Recipes for the Nutrition-Packed

By Sandy Barnes Berthoud Recorder When I was a kid, my West Virginia mom would cook up a huge batch of kale, simmering it all day long with salt pork in a kettle of water. At suppertime, she would serve the very well-cooked kale with vinegar (to kill the taste), a big dish of black eyed peas and a plate of corn bread. Now in this age of food enlightenment, we know that vegetables cooked to death in large quantities of water with lots of salt and fat back aren’t all that nutritious. To retain ... Full Story

Bully for You: Bad Behaviors in School

By Shari Phiel Berthoud Recorder Students have been bullying and harassing their classmates since students first walked through the school room doors. Not that long ago, it would have been not only acceptable but even common practice, for parents, teachers and even school officials to dismiss incidents of bullying or harassment as typical childhood behavior, as kids being kids. Targets of bullying were often told they just needed to “toughen up” or to stand up for themselves. Add to this ... Full Story

Skyline Thwarts Lady Spartans' Late Run

By Michael Hicks Berthoud Recorder LONGMONT — Randy Earl knew what he wanted to say about what appeared to be a foul on Berthoud starter Danielle Wikre with 5.8 seconds left in regulation and his Spartans down one, but he couldn’t. “You know, in the NBA, that will get me fined because if I told the truth …” Earl said. What the girls’ basketball coach couldn’t say about Friday’s 44-41 loss at Skyline, Wikre could say. Well, almost. “Yeah, because I tripped over her, but ... Full Story
