By Laurie Hindman Berthoud Recorder Sixth-grade math teacher Dave Hunn stands before a large illuminated white board. With a tap of a stylus, about the size of a small pen, a virtual ruler appears. With that stylus, Hunn can move or rotate the ruler, measuring a geometric object that magically appears with another tap. The eyes of the students are riveted to the board and the typically restless group of adolescents appears fully engaged in the lesson. (more…)

Outdoors Near Your Backdoor: Get Outside and Take a

By Deborah Huth Price Berthoud Recorder Once, while on a bicycle ride with my husband, I asked him which way to move the lever to go to a lower speed. Instead, he gave me a complete explanation of how the gear mechanism works. This was not surprising, coming from an engineer, but I just wanted to take a ride. Sometimes I feel that way about bicycle riding in general. I am a little more than intimidated by the hard core bikers, leaning over the handlebars in their spandex pants and bicycle ... Full Story

Price of Admission: ‘Whip It’ is Comedy on Wheels

By Dani White Berthoud Recorder The upbeat, offbeat chick comedy “Whip It” rolls merrily into theaters nationwide on Friday, Oct. 2. In all honesty there were three major reasons I decided to see the film. Reason one: it’s about roller derby. Reason two: idle curiosity concerning the meaning of the title. Reason three: the film is Drew Barrymore’s directorial debut. The upshot was happily rewarding: “Whip It” is fun, quirky, hilarious, serious and sincere with a brilliant cast of ... Full Story

Common Sense Beats Magic Pills

Someone is always looking for that magic pill. As a nutritionist and a personal trainer, I am often asked, "What do I need to eat to lose weight." That's a question with a long answer, if you want the right answer. Unfortunately, a lot of people try to capitalize on the short, wrong answer. They buy pills and potions to try to reduce cellulite, lose weight or "block" carbohydrate absorption. (more…)

By Shari Phiel Berthoud Recorder As some of our readers may already know, this is my last column and last week with the Berthoud Recorder. I am moving to the northern coast of Oregon later this week. I will definitely miss all of the wonderful people I have met over the nearly 14 years I’ve lived in Colorado, and it’s been a genuine pleasure to cover all of the events, news and interesting happenings in Berthoud for the past 18 months, too.

On Bonfires and the Singular Safire

By Gary Wamsley Berthoud Recorder With a little help, the parade of scarecrows crossed Mountain Avenue to the farmers market last Thursday. Twenty-two scarecrows attended this year’s event. Kudos to the Berthoud Library for their assistance in hosting the scarecrow making activity. If not for their participation, I suspect the scarecrow population would have been smaller. The judges did not announce a selection of winners, so I assume everyone was a winner. It certainly looked that way to ... Full Story
