Valentine's and Bubble Bath

By Gary Wamsley Berthoud Recorder Valentine’s Day and President’s days are both coming up. The Berthoud Community Library will be open both days I think. When I was a youth we had Lincoln’s birthday and Washington’s birthday as holidays but the economics of holidays apparently forced the change in observance. Actually the federal holiday is still officially Washington’s Birthday, which has been publicly celebrated since he was in office, long before Lincoln was born. Several ... Full Story

Letter to the Editor: Feb. 12, 2009

Supporting Berthoud I am writing this because I’m concerned about the town of Berthoud. In the past few weeks, we’ve lost two more businesses (that I know of) with the Wayside Inn and the Video Library both shutting their doors. I’ve been disappointed that neither of our “local” papers have had any stories about these business closures (maybe I’ll be proven wrong this week).

CSU-Pueblo Offers Best of Both Worlds for Brad Dick

Berthoud Lineman Signs to Play Football at D-II School By Michael Hicks Berthoud Recorder Ever since he was in the sixth grade Brad Dick has known what he’s wanted to do with his life.

But the son of Deanne and Mike Dick also is a football player, and a pretty good one at that. So finding a school that would offer ... Full Story

Rams Paint the Bud a Sea of Green

By Michael Hicks Berthoud Recorder LOVELAND — Make no bones about it, Loveland is a Colorado State town. That was evident Thursday night at the Budweiser Events Center in the first of two Rocky Mountain Faceoff games featuring the Rams and the University of Colorado. The sea of green was evident. OK, mind you, Loveland is less than 10 miles from Fort Collins and the seats at the Bud are green anyway, but the folks sitting in them were definitely pro-Rams. The green T-shirts, green ...

Spartans Benefit From Extra Mat Time as Postseason

By Michael Hicks Berthoud Recorder EATON — First Widefield, then Eaton. The season-ending dual meets for Berthoud’s wrestling team were designed to kick-start the Spartans as they enter this weekend’s Region 1 tournament at Fossil Ridge High School. And, for the most part, they served their purposes. Then there’s heavyweight Jared Wikre. Wikre missed out on the Widefield Gladiator Duals due to personal commitments. Then he was the recipient of four forfeit victories in five matches ... Full Story
