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. As I went over the lists of the Berthoud people who competed in all the categories the fair had to offer I was struck by two things. First is the sheer number of judging events.

Letters: Aug. 13, 2009

Concerned About Library Coffee I stopped by the library today and noticed a couple of perhaps eight-or nine-year-old girls helping themselves to the free coffee. One of the young girls said to the other "I just love coffee.” I remarked to the clerk at the desk that children were helping themselves to the coffee. She replied there was nothing they could do about it. First of all coffee is expensive and the taxpayers should not be furnishing coffee, especially to children. Taxpayer money ... Full Story

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
