Summer Job Scene: Serving Up Summer at A&W

By Taylor Lee Berthoud Recorder For teens in Berthoud, working in the food industry is a common option for a summer job, and A&W is just one of the places that employs many high school students.     Kristen Raney, 18, has been working there for almost three years and has finally earned her rank as a manager. She plans on attending the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley in the fall. Raney says the best thing about work is the people, because when you work with them ... Full Story

Youth 411: Hit the Pool

By P.J. DiPentino Berthoud Recorder I grew up in Shannon, Ill., a small town 100 miles west of Chicago. The summer weather can be brutal, with 100-degree temperatures and 90 percent humidity. The town I lived in only had 850 people in it and there were not a lot of things to do. Our community did not have a public swimming pool and we often had to find other ways to keep cool in the heat.

Taylor Made: What Makes the Logan County Fair So

By Taylor Lee Berthoud Recorder For as long as I can remember, my family and I have gone down to Sterling every year to the Logan County Fair. Some people might wonder why we would go that far when there are two county fairs within 20 miles. Well, I believe that there is something different about the Logan County Fair, and that’s not to say other fairs don’t offer something of their own. It runs at about the same time as the Boulder and Larimer county fairs. This year it’s July 31 ... Full Story

The Healthy Gourmand: Summertime … and the

By Sandy Barnes Berthoud Recorder On warm summer evenings, it’s nice to have meals prepared ahead of time that can either be eaten cold, or briefly reheated. Here are two recipes for main dishes with interesting flavors, which would also make good picnic foods. A fresh vegetable salad completes the meal, while adding a crunchy texture and important nutrients. (more…)

Editorial: All Voices Considered

By Jamie Folsom, Managing Editor Berthoud Recorder As a true reflection of the community, this paper has changed over the years. New families, new businesses and new ideas have come to Berthoud, and at times, it’s a challenge to have our pages include the new along with the existing voices in the community. But we feel a great duty in our role as history keepers and that means listening and watching for those changes. To bring news that’s balanced, fair and non-partisan, we have to go ... Full Story

1642 — What's Next? Traditions, or Just

By Ralph Trenary Berthoud Recorder Musicals have always been a significant part of my family life. As a small guy I learned all of the boys’ songs from “Oliver.” Then, after my voice changed I moved on to learn songs that were beyond my stage presence or character to be able to perform. They were just great tunes or had meaningful lyrics. In these tumultuous times “Fiddler on the Roof” is worth considering in light of the controversy over “change.”  For several decades now ...

Around Town: On the Fence

By Gary Wamsley Berthoud Recorder We had a busy Fourth of July morning. There is nothing like having company coming to energize you into trying to make the place look presentable and doing all that repair work that you’ve been putting off. The repair work in question was the replacement of two cedar posts in our split rail fence. Even cedar doesn’t last forever. I think the posts in question were placed about 25 years ago. I have learned a lot about fencing since then and wanted to fill ... Full Story

Auto Registration Fees Unreasonable

By Sen. Kevin Lundberg State Senate District 15 Senate bill 108 is a quarter of a billion dollar (per year) car tax. Some are calling it Bill Ritter's Car Tax, for it was a bill that the governor urged the legislature to pass. Never in my legislative experience have I seen such a strong reaction from the people of Colorado after a law has begun to take effect. For the last several weeks hardly a day goes by without at least one constituent calling me to complain about SB-108. The bill is ... Full Story
