4-H and Larimer County Fair Time

By Gerri Roberts Berthoud Recorder It is that time of year again, almost the end of summer. For many 4-H’ers it is also time to scramble and pull together all of our projects and complete our record books for the Larimer County Fair. The final days before the interviews and judging always seem to be busiest and sometimes even stressful.  Although I have worked very hard this past weekend, I am always so happy and proud to see how my project came together. I look at my completed ... Full Story

Meanwhile, there is a colossal amount of misinformation being thrown at the American people and members of Congress in a ... Full Story

Around Town: Family Time, Fair Time

By Gary Wamsley Berthoud Recorder We spent the weekend in North Platte, Neb. The occasion was my annual family reunion. I considered not going because of all the pre-county fair activity. In the end, it seemed more important to see the family. I lost two cousins in the past year, and you never know if this might be the last time.
