Conflict in Berthoud: Economic Development Stalled by

By Shari Phiel Berthoud Recorder It appears that despite urgings from several Town board members to look towards the future, a subset of members from the Berthoud Economic Resource Team continue to focus on past grievances. Following last week’s submittal of a letter to the Town Board of Trustees calling for the board to forgo renewal of Town Administrator Jim White’s contract, subcommittee members of the economic group have approached local business owners to sign a petition drafted for ...

Letter from the Publisher: Disinformation and Ethics

After reading the letter from the subcommittee of the Berthoud Economic Resource Team (BERT) to the Town Board, I read the referenced Berthoud Weekly Surveyor article. After that reading and then comparing it to the article that appeared in The Berthoud Recorder, I find that I must question the completeness and accuracy of information being provided by the Surveyor to those involved in this conflict as well as those in the community.

Molly Deserved Better

By Ralph Trenary Berthoud Recorder News stories rarely stick in my mind for more than a day, and I can’t remember a Colorado story that lingered for over a week. That was before the unspeakable injustice in Woodland Park on Thursday, March 12, 2009. I might just permanently record that date as an onerous “red letter” day in my calendar. My computerized date book will remind me for eternity. In my judgment that’s the duration of penalty that the perpetrator of this crime deserves. If ... Full Story
