Berthoud Bash tops last year

Berthoud Bash tops last year

The Second Annual Berthoud Bash drew 270 people, a 15 percent increase over last year. The committees are still counting the money, but it looks like proceeds will top $70,000. That will certainly help the members of the Berthoud Schools Fund advance their goal of creating 21st century classrooms in the Kindergarten through 8th grade and bringing document cameras and a progress toward student laptop computers in the high school. Last year’s event raised over $50,000 and the fund was able ... Full Story

Why I Voted Yes — Betsy Markey

Why I Voted Yes — Betsy Markey

That was the approach I brought to Congress a year and a half ago – weigh costs with results, and make decisions based on the facts – not ... Full Story

Not only did Justin regularly stop in to make sure things were going okay and respond effectively any time we needed assistance, he’d even stop by after the end of his shift to share a cup of coffee and keep me company as I ...
