Letter from the Publisher: Disinformation and Ethics

After reading the letter from the subcommittee of the Berthoud Economic Resource Team (BERT) to the Town Board, I read the referenced Berthoud Weekly Surveyor article.

I certainly recognize the tactics. During my 30 years of ... Full Story

Molly Deserved Better

By Ralph Trenary Berthoud Recorder News stories rarely stick in my mind for more than a day, and I can’t remember a Colorado story that lingered for over a week. That was before the unspeakable injustice in Woodland Park on Thursday, March 12, 2009. I might just permanently record that date as an onerous “red letter” day in my calendar.

The Haworth's Hub: Century-Old Barn Has Served as

By Jenny Anderson Berthoud Recorder The Haworth Family     The first Haworths living near Berthoud were William John and his son Franklin.
