Guest Editorial: The Wayside: An Insider's Look

By PJ DiPentino Special to the Berthoud Recorder In the current state of economic woes, business closures are not uncommon. For me the closing of the Wayside Inn really hit home. I started my relationship with Chef Jeremy and Deb when they first opened the doors. My wife Lexi was on the original team, and I joined the crew about 18 months ago as a prep cook. The excitement of being a part of the Wayside staff and training with Chef was an eye-opening yet gratifying opportunity. I rarely came to ... Full Story

Time to Wake Up and Smell the Change

By Shari Phiel Berthoud Recorder    Taken a drive down Mountain Avenue lately? Berthoud’s tree-lined streets dotted with family-friendly restaurants, unique and interesting shops, and mom-and-pop businesses vital to the survival of any small community, have been replaced by empty store fronts, for sale signs and “space available” notices posted in windows and on sidewalks. I don’t remember seeing this many empty businesses before, but perhaps I just couldn’t see them ... Full Story

Dreaming of Watermelons

By Gary Wamsley Berthoud Recorder Among our Christmas gifts was an electric mattress pad. These heating devices seemed to have replaced the electric blanket as a way of warming the bed when the thermostat is turned down at night and preheating the cold sheets. I thought it frivolous at first, but have come to like it. There were times in my sleeping cycle when I would feel cold, but no longer. I have been sleeping more soundly and later in the morning. There is an exception to this. It has ... Full Story

Campus View: Discovering Joy in the Little Things

By Sarah Kay Hurst Berthoud Recorder I’ve always admired people who can laugh at everyday moments, who make time to appreciate the quirks of daily life. I really enjoyed the interesting lectures and stimulating discussions that arose in my classes this week. But, when I sat down to write about my experiences, I realized I had, perhaps, gotten a little too caught up in all my work. Sometimes I rush through everyday moments in order to catch up on “what’s important,” and don’t stop ... Full Story

Letters to the Editor: Feb. 19, 2009

Resident Poet Speaks to Reader I look forward each week to see what memories and reveries Virginia Mayo summons up with her poems. She provides a gentle quiet moment in the day with her poetry. My mother enjoys my reading them to her and the discussion which entails. We especially enjoyed her "Happy Birthday" poem, which came out the day before my mother's 99th birthday. It felt like it was intended for her as well as Virginia herself. I copied it on my computer (with Virginia's approval) and ... Full Story
