Around Town: It Takes a Village

By Gary Wamsley Berthoud Recorder The county fairs are over and it looks like it was a good year for both fairgoers and for exhibitors.

The Geek Attack: Where's the Love for Colorado?

By Kyle Lee Berthoud Recorder How many times have you looked at your favorite band’s tour dates to find, lo and behold, Colorado is completely ignored? I’ve seen this happen with everything from concerts to comic conventions. Even something as silly as a tour of all the NFL training camps by ESPN reporter Chris Mortensen manages to pass us by. And that’s not to say that our precious Broncos are boring; we’ve had more excitement and drama than a rerun of “Dallas”. So why do we get ... Full Story

The Thompson R2-J School Board voted Aug. 5 for the construction of new tennis courts — six in all — to be placed adjacent to the recently added-on auxiliary gym and classrooms. It’s too early to tell how long the project will take, according to Berthoud High Athletic Director Mark Avery, but girls tennis coach Dave Mathiesen said Friday ... Full Story
