I was of the opinion that if they got hungry enough that they would eat what you set before them. I am singing a different tune now. (more…)

Letters: Sept. 10, 2009

Response to ‘View of Bert’ I would like to voice my support of the Berthoud Recorder and, in particular, its journalistic staff that provides Berthoud its news with objectivity and integrity. It troubles me that a member of our Town Board would question the motives of the Recorder, even so far as to recall the results of a lawsuit that should be dead and buried and has nothing to do with town business. We look to our print media to provide us with information that is both accurate and ... Full Story

Geek Attack: Evolution of Gaming, Part 1

By Kyle Lee Berthoud Recorder Video games are a large part of society at this point. And it's safe to say they really aren't kids’ things anymore. The earliest example of a video game was created in 1947. That makes it 62 years old, and my, has it grown. (more…)

Moffat Football Trips Up Spartans in OT

By Michael Hicks Berthoud Recorder CRAIG — Marcus Mathieson kneeled on the ground in disappointment. His fellow Berthoud teammates followed suit.

Just seven offensive plays earlier, the Spartans had overcome the odds, and their own mistakes, to force overtime. But on Moffat County’s second offensive play in the extra session, running back Pablo Salcido slipped out of the ... Full Story
