For a vacation close to home, the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad is less than a day’s drive and offers some of the most spectacular views, many of which can only be seen while riding the train. The restored track, engines and cars run daily mid-May through mid-October between Antonito, Colo. and Chama, N. M., crossing the Colorado-New Mexico border 11 ... Full Story

1642 — What's Next? Gettin' Away With

By Ralph Trenary Berthoud Recorder Back in May I had a column titled “Where’s the Honesty and Integrity?” In recent weeks I’ve recognized a similar issue that I call “gettin’ away with it.” This is the stuff that’s just hard for me to sit back and watch. When I see it, and if the kids are around it becomes a “ … this is unacceptable …” learning opportunity. Sometimes it’s even cause to call 911. (more…)

Around Town: Reel Life Memories

By Gary Wamsley Berthoud Recorder I stopped by the library on Monday evening and noticed quite a few people sitting in the meeting room in the dark. I stuck my head in the door and saw that they were enjoying the Monday night movie time. Just one of the many library activities offered during the year. That got me thinking about the “old” days when even small towns had their own movie theater. In the early 1940s the theater in Grant, Neb., population 1,000, was less than a block from our ...

Bats and Bugs Return to Berthoud Firehouse

By Jamie Folsom Berthoud Recorder Berthoud Fire personnel discovered bat bugs in Fire Station 1 on July 7 and evacuated operations and administrative offices to temporary facilities in their parking lot. Despite the fact that bats had recently been removed from the building’s attic, the presence of the parasitic bat bugs (genus Cimex) means the bats have returned in greater numbers. In fall 2008, the BFPD took advantage of a re-roofing project to cover some openings the bats used to access ... Full Story

Around Town: Making Hay

By Gary Wamsley Berthoud Recorder I didn’t get any suggestions on how to repair my lawn mower’s plastic gas tank so I went on the Internet for information on sealants. I found a review of a product that claimed it was not affected by gasoline and I purchased a tube of it. I also used some of my 600 mile-per-hour tape left over from my flying days. The tape is pretty amazing stuff that should stay in place until a permanent repair can be made. I should be able to install the tank this ... Full Story
