Dreaming of Trains

By Ralph Trenary Berthoud Recorder Back in the good old days I watched “The Wild, Wild West” every Saturday morning on TV. Then there was the 1973 RTD plan that promised monorail Personal Rapid Transit by 1983. Teenagers can believe in miracles and this looked like a great future. I still have the orange book with the great pictures. It just doesn’t seem fair that James West had a railcar that rivaled the Bat Cave and I’m still risking my life and sanity driving on I-25. For over 10 ... Full Story

Holiday Tidings

By Gary Wamsley Merry Christmas and Happy Chanukah to all. It has been an exciting week of activity in and around Berthoud. First have been the wonderful holiday programs, which continue on Christmas Eve at our local churches. It is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy the company of friends and neighbors in a joyful atmosphere and set the mood for celebrating a day with family. The delivery of gifts from our Christmas in Berthoud was a heartwarming activity. Town Hall was filled with gifts and ... Full Story

Surviving the Holiday

By Shari Phiel Berthoud Recorder Christmas around my house is usually fairly quiet. I generally travel to either a family member’s home or spend the holidays here with my mom. For the first time though, they’re coming here.  And by they I mean several members of my immediately family (and one 3 pound dog) will be traveling from Florida and North Carolina to stay in my rather small house that doesn’t have nearly enough room for all of them. For years I’ve seen reports and read ... Full Story

Consider Pilates in 2009

By Megan Reece Berthoud Recorder She called it the “teaser,” but if I could have named this Pilates move myself, it would have been the “trembler.” As Pilates instructor Stacy Hepp offered form corrections and compliments, I felt my abdominal muscles and legs shaking terribly. At last, sweet relief, Hepp released the class participants and finally let us stretch out completely on the floor. Hepp teaches serial Pilates sessions through United Country and Gateway Natural Medicine. Ruth ... Full Story

Basketball Growing Pains

Greeley West ends Berthoud’s Two-game Winning Streak By Taylor Lee Berthoud Recorder As Saturday night came to an end, so did the realization of the Berthoud boys’ basketball team’s first conference loss. The Greeley West Spartans beat Berthoud, 61-54, in the Spartans’ home opener right before the holiday break started. The loss dropped Berthoud to 3-1 in the Northern Conference and 3-4 overall. “Our field-goal percentage needed work, and that’s what killed us really,” Berthoud ... Full Story

Lady Spartans Come Up Short at Poudre Tournament

By Michael Hicks Berthoud Recorder FORT COLLINS -- Considering how things started, the Berthoud Lady Spartans may have been fortunate to even be in the game. But by game’s end, all head coach Randy Earl could ponder was how his team lost Saturday’s fifth-place consolation game at the Poudre Holiday Invitational. Danielle Wikre’s jumper came after the final buzzer. That’s how close Berthoud came to victory. Instead, Fountain-Fort Carson escaped with a 46-45 win at Poudre High School, ... Full Story

Spartans Matmen Dig into Reserves to Turn Back Windsor

By Michael Hicks Berthoud Recorder WINDSOR -- Jesse Lyman has been in this position before, wrestling on the varsity team. Corey Ellis, on the other hand, had not. But on Thursday night at Windsor High School, for various reasons, both were called upon to help Berthoud in its final match before the holiday break. And as things would have it, both took the proverbial bull by the horns and helped the Spartans remain undefeated in dual-meet matches with a 41-28 win over the host Wizards. Although, ...

Eagles Notebook: Eagles, First-Place Blazers Not

By Michael Hicks Berthoud Recorder LOVELAND -- The way things started Dec. 17 at the Budweiser Events Center it’s pretty safe to say that the Colorado Eagles and the Oklahoma City Blazers won’t be exchanging holiday pleasantries this week. Or, maybe they will. It could’ve all been for show. The game was televised on Altitude. But not even two minutes into the Eagles’ final home game before Christmas, the teams engaged in three fights, and that was just the start in a game that featured ... Full Story
