Guest Editorial: It's No Time to Have a Cow

By Cory Gardner State Representative, District 63  There’s hogwash and poppycock. And then there’s the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Most people agree that we should be responsible stewards of the environment. But the EPA’s new idea to tax Bessie the Cow takes home the grand prize for reaching new heights of government absurdity. If you think you’ve seen it all from government, ruminate on this. Our friends in Washington, D.C. are actually considering a new gas tax. A ... Full Story

Police Beat: Dec. 18, 2008

Monday, Dec. 8 A young female customer at the Derby Grill left her purse on the back of her chair while she went to the lady’s room and the purse was missing when she returned. A call by a woman that someone had used her credit card at the Conoco Station led to quick action by Berthoud Police. Two and half hours after the call came in, police had an adult male in custody and transported him to the detention facility. A caller from Keep Circle needed the assistance of the Code Enforcement ... Full Story

Earth & Sky: Winter Solstice

Winter Solstice Sunday, Dec. 21, 2008 As you drove home from work on Friday, it was late autumn in the northern hemisphere. And for folks in the southern hemisphere, it was late spring as the weekend began. Yet, when you return to work tomorrow, the season will have changed. It’ll be winter in the northern hemisphere, and summer in the southern hemisphere. That’s because today is the December solstice. There’s nothing official about beginning and ending the winter or summer season at the ... Full Story

A Trip of a Lifetime

By Laurie Hindman Berthoud Recorder Beaches of white, black or red sand, clear blue waters, reefs of lava rocks crowded with miniature penguins mingling with three foot iguanas, orcas rising from the sea as the sun sets -- sounds like a fantasy or at least a strange dream, but this is life at the Galapagos Islands. My in-laws celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary by taking our family and my husband’s sister’s family on an all expense paid trip to the Galapagos Islands. They had been ... Full Story

Turnovers Too Much for Spartans

By Michael Hicks Berthoud Recorder FORT COLLINS -- Joel Maly did all he could and then some. Jeff Shields provided the offensive counterpart that Berthoud needs to compliment Maly, at least in the first half. But the one thing the Spartans couldn’t find an answer for was their own inability to quit stepping in their own toes. And that was enough to keep Berthoud out of the win column at the Fort Collins/Poudre Tip-Off Invitational. The Spartans went 0-3 in the annual tournament held at Fort ... Full Story

Berthoud Benefits from Forfeits, Pinfalls in Home

By Michael Hicks Berthoud Recorder While the scoreboard showed a decisive victory for Berthoud’s wrestling team, anything further from the truth may have been the real winner. That’s because while visiting Sterling won only three matches -- two by pinfall -- to the six pinfalls the Spartans claimed, it was the number of forfeits that set the tone for Thursday’s home opener. Fresh off its season-opening victory at the Windsor Invitational, Berthoud was looking to make a splash in front of ... Full Story

Yes, For Once I Agree with CHSAA

By Michael Hicks Berthoud Recorder I’ve been openly critical of how the Colorado High School Activities Association decides which classification schools play in for various sports. Most of the time it is determined by enrollment size, but not always. Berthoud High School, for a matter of fact, plays most sports in 4A. But the football team plays in 3A because most Colorado schools play the revenue-making sport, knocking the Spartans down to a competitive classification. Joining the football ... Full Story

Eagles Notebook: No Shortage of Power When Eagles, Sun

By Michael Hicks Berthoud Recorder LOVELAND -- First Arizona, then Colorado, and again and again. For two periods Saturday night the Eagles and SunDogs traded power-play goal after power-play goal. There certainly wasn’t a shortage of offensive production. Leave it to Kevin Ulanski to score an even-strength goal with 12 minutes, 10 seconds remaining in the third in what proved to be the game-winner in a 7-5 victory over Arizona at a sold-out Budweiser Events Center on Saturday night. The ... Full Story
