It’s All in the Numbers If nothing else, Colby Schultz has to like what he sees every time the Berthoud track and field coach shows up at practice. It doesn’t have to be what his athletes are doing. It’s just the sheer number of them there. With a team of more than 60 student-athletes out this year — more than double last year’s total of 31 — the Spartans, if for no other reason, have to be considered a surprise team in the 4A Northern Conference this year. “Last year, we had ...

Times Flies for Spartans Sports

By Michael Hicks Berthoud Recorder I was out hanging at a park in downtown Denver on Saturday afternoon with my sons and as we walked back to the car it dawned on me. The next day was March 1. Let me repeat that, March 1. By gosh, where has the school year gone? It seemed like just yesterday we were just talking about Jordan Major, Bryce Munoz and company vying for a repeat as 3A state football champions. We were talking about Mil Santos’ girls’ volleyball team making another run at a 4A ... Full Story

Earth & Sky: Whimsy in the Sky: Moon and Venus

By Deborah Byrd Here’s the most delicate and winsome scene you’ll see in the sky all this month – maybe all this year. It’s the brightest planet Venus – now only a few days past being at its very brightest for this evening apparition – near the waxing crescent moon in the evening sky. Of course, Venus and the moon aren’t really near each other in space. I’ve heard this sort of celestial scene described as being no more meaningful than if, for example, you were walking down a ...
