Exciting Youth Opportunities

By Gary Wamsley Berthoud Recorder This is an exciting time for Berthoud. If you read P.J. DiPentino’s article last week about the chance of having a Boys and Girls Club in Berthoud, you will know what I am talking about. This opportunity is an outgrowth of our BMX track operation. P.J. originally approached the area Boys and Girls Clubs to participate in a BMX program at our track. At first hesitant, the local, and even national clubs have embraced the BMX concept and will even have a small ... Full Story

Standing in the Sunshine

By Shari Phiel Berthoud Recorder "Everybody knows that corruption thrives in secret places, and avoids public places, and we believe it a fair presumption that secrecy means impropriety." Pres. Woodrow Wilson Over the course of the next week, Berthoud Recorder staff will participate in the 2009 Sunshine Week Survey of state and local government information online.

Campus View: Pass the Passion

By Sarah Kay Hurst Berthoud Recorder Life is too short to get very much sleep. The semester is underway and life on campus is as exciting as ever! I am back in our little, bohemian dorm room, back to losing books in the immense pile of pillows and papers and music books, back to having intense discussions and remising about funny memories at lunch with friends, back to late night study sessions battling against Spanish grammar and laughing at our mistakes, which become more wildly hysterical ...

Eagles Notebook: Hogg Keys Win Vs. Scorpions

By Michael Hicks Berthoud Recorder LOVELAND — Adam Hogg rarely scores one goal much less a goal in two back-to-back games. But that’s what he did Friday night in a 6-2 Colorado Eagles’ win over New Mexico at the Budweiser Events Center. Hogg’s first-period goal jumpstarted a three-goal flurry for the Eagles, who also got goals from Greg Pankewicz and Scott Polaski. But it was Hogg who got the ball rolling. “It’s nice having a team where you’re not relying on three guys to ... Full Story

Rough Riders Too Much for Lady Spartans

By Taylor Lee Berthoud Recorder The Berthoud girls’ basketball team faced a tough opponent Saturday night at home. It clearly showed, too, because the Spartans had to put up a fight from beginning to the end against Roosevelt’s tough defense and nearly unstoppable offense during the Jan. 31 games. In the end, Roosevelt defeated Berthoud, 57-37. Going into halftime, the Rough Riders led 28-19. As the third quarter began Berthoud still struggled as Roosevelt’s Sendy Valles and Katie ...

Spartans Lose Focus at Sterling

By Michael Hicks Berthoud Recorder STERLING — When the Berthoud boys’ basketball season began in December, Head Coach Pete Scheck had a goal in mind that his Spartans could finish in the top half of the standings in the 4A Northern Conference. Those were lofty expectations coming from a team that won just one game the year before. But with seven victories already and a winnable stretch remaining, that goal is a realistic possibility. Now, the next logical step is climbing into the ... Full Story

Sadlo All Systems Go at Fort Morgan

By Michael Hicks Berthoud Recorder FORT MORGAN — Graeden Sadlo wasn’t 100 percent, but with the regional wrestling tournament coming up Valentine’s Day weekend, the senior 125-pounder needed the mat time. He might not be physically ready thanks to the bursitis in his right knee — a situation he’s dealt with since the 4A state tournament last February — but he was still good enough Thursday night, Jan. 29, to help Berthoud score a 41-30 victory over the host Mustangs. “I wanted ...

There's a Reason Why it's Called the Super

By Michael Hicks Berthoud Recorder We’ll sit in front of the television, we’ll invite over friends and family, and we’ll throw back a few drinks all in the process. It’s Super Sunday when you and yours get together and for three-plus hours to watch a bunch of multimillion dollar commercials. Oh, yeah, I almost forgot. In between all those commercials there’s actually a football game — this year Super Bowl XLIII and a halftime performance by Bruce Springsteen. Unlike any other ... Full Story
