Fit & Fun: Activity and Delicious Food in One

By Megan Reece Thomas Berthoud Recorder Here’s a way you can not only get in some extra physical activity in the warm summer sun, but fuel your body to be a well functioning machine. The benefits of shopping at a farmers market have been touted here in the past, but the message is worth repeating. Right now the markets will be brimming with everything from fresh herbs and arugula, to tomatoes, peaches, beets and melons. You can get all of this in the grocery store, but what difference does ...

1642 “ What’s Next?” Adults

By Ralph Trenary Berthoud Recorder Driving on U.S. Highway 287, either to the north or south, presents multiple examples of gettin’ away with it. The basics start with speeders and those who roam around with expired license plates. The latter infraction has recently become a very costly choice. No argument from me; just gotta’ plan ahead, make paying for the plates a priority and git ‘er done. The former raises my concerns for the safety of drivers young and old. Up at the county ...

Guest Editorial

By John Kefalas State Representative (D-52) While the Colorado Legislature is out of session, the battle for health care reform is raging in Washington, D.C. With the House and Senate trying to pass a major reform bill, and with hundreds of insurance, hospital and pharmacy lobbyists filling the halls of Congress, it’s hard to know what the final product will be. Meanwhile, there is a colossal amount of misinformation being thrown at the American people and members of Congress in a ... Full Story

Around Town: Family Time, Fair Time

By Gary Wamsley Berthoud Recorder We spent the weekend in North Platte, Neb. The occasion was my annual family reunion. I considered not going because of all the pre-county fair activity. In the end, it seemed more important to see the family. I lost two cousins in the past year, and you never know if this might be the last time. This was the 53rd reunion, and attendance has been waning the past few years, but family ties are important. I did have the opportunity to tour the old Fox Theater, ... Full Story

Letters: July 30, 2009

Almost Green With the release of An Inconvenient Truth, Al Gore sounded the alarm at a moment many view as a tipping point in the “green” movement. Look around and everywhere you will find new products and services that make bold claims about their carbon footprint and how they will play a role in saving our planet. Yet, if we look just a little closer, a different view quickly emerges. As society embraces hybrid cars, solar cells and wind power one quickly realizes that we are, for the ... Full Story

EarthSky: Shaula and Lesath Near Moon

By Deborah Byrd EarthSky Communications Friday, July 31, 2009 We’re still looking in the direction of the constellation Scorpius. Can you pick out the reddish star Antares at the Heart of the Scorpion? It’s the brightest star near the moon tonight. If you can see Antares and the moon — and if your shy is unobstructed in the direction towards the southern horizon — you should be able to pick out a graceful looping stream of stars. These stars represent the Scorpion’s curved tail. ... Full Story

Police Beat: July 30, 2009

Tuesday, July 21 A family outing at Berthoud Park took a bad turn after it started to rain. Dad gave the girls the key to the vehicle so they could get out of the rain. The 12-year-old needed to roll up the window but in the process of turning the key to power the window she turned it too far and started the truck. The vehicle was in gear and went forward and hit a tree. Fortunately, no one was injured. Juveniles hanging around the Berthoud Commons parking lot after 9 p.m. were give a verbal ... Full Story
