Concerned About Library Coffee I stopped by the library today and noticed a couple of perhaps eight-or nine-year-old girls helping themselves to the free coffee. One of the young girls said to the other "I just love coffee.” I remarked to the clerk at the desk that children were helping themselves to the coffee. She replied there was nothing they could do about it. First of all coffee is expensive and the taxpayers should not be furnishing coffee, especially to children. Taxpayer money ... Full Story

The Zweck-Lemmon Barn: A Labor of Love

Historic Barn Series By Jenny Anderson Berthoud Recorder The Little Thompson Valley Zweck-Lemmon farm has a long history of hardship and neglect, ending in a half-century of love. William K. Staggs purchased 160 acres in the Little Thompson Valley from the federal government in February 1870. This was the first of several parcels purchased by George Zweck, who farmed and raised livestock on the farm. He likely built the granary remaining on the property. Dreams of Gold George Zweck came ... Full Story

The Geek Attack: Where's the Love for Colorado?

By Kyle Lee Berthoud Recorder How many times have you looked at your favorite band’s tour dates to find, lo and behold, Colorado is completely ignored? I’ve seen this happen with everything from concerts to comic conventions. Even something as silly as a tour of all the NFL training camps by ESPN reporter Chris Mortensen manages to pass us by. And that’s not to say that our precious Broncos are boring; we’ve had more excitement and drama than a rerun of “Dallas”. So why do we get ... Full Story

Flu-Stricken Bell Gives All in Quest for Repeat Title

By P.J. DiPentino Berthoud Recorder At times, reaching a goal is more about the obstacles you have to overcome than achieving a specific end result. This was certainly the case recently for Berthoud’s Wyatt Bell. The Bell family traveled to Australia last month, where Wyatt participated in the 2009 BMX World Championships with Team USA. Wyatt, 6, is the defending world champion and had been training hard for three months, even going as far as to build a replica of the upcoming world ... Full Story

Family Gives Its All to Success of BMX

Role Players: P.J. and Lexi DiPentino By Michael Hicks Berthoud Recorder The kids were lined up three deep, 50 kids in all, waiting their turn. P.J. DiPentino, the owner and operator of the Berthoud BMX, was on hand at the Loveland Boys and Girls Club, where he helped design and build the first BMX track at the facility. The kids were eagerly waiting to ride one of the broken-down bikes that he and Adam Wasson had rebuilt and cleaned up — each bike coming with a helmet. Then one-by-one ... Full Story

New Tennis Courts a Go After School Board Approval

By Michael Hicks Berthoud Recorder Girls tennis season is still six months away, but Berthoud just scored its first, and maybe biggest, victory yet. The Thompson R2-J School Board voted Aug. 5 for the construction of new tennis courts — six in all — to be placed adjacent to the recently added-on auxiliary gym and classrooms. It’s too early to tell how long the project will take, according to Berthoud High Athletic Director Mark Avery, but girls tennis coach Dave Mathiesen said Friday ... Full Story

View from the Sidelines: Schumacher Short on Words,

By Michael Hicks Berthoud Recorder Josh Schumacher, if nothing else, is modest. He’s a kid of few words. You’re not likely to find him tooting his own horn. So I’ll do it for him … toot, toot. He won’t boast or brag about his performance. That’s not his nature. If you ask him how well he did his answer is a simple one. “I did OK,” Josh said. But what is OK for Josh? How about taking first place in the state at the Rockies Skills Challenge, sponsored by the Colorado Parks and ... Full Story
