Trying to Understand

By Scott Crossen Berthoud Recorder The latest terrorist events in Mumbai, India, cause me to consider why an event of this magnitude occurred. What precipitated the mindless killing and injuring of so many innocent people? What made the terrorists believe that what they were doing was right despite their actions being in opposition to their religious text? What makes people believe their actions are defensible and that everyone else is wrong? The question and answer can be applied both globally ... Full Story

Weathering Heights

By Gary Wamsley Berthoud Recorder It’s nearly time to start learning how to say and write 2009. With Christmas and New Year’s Day fast approaching, 2008 will be gone in a flash, but there is still much to do in the current year. The crews are trying to finish Mountain Avenue so we can have our parade this weekend. While the street is adequate, the places for spectators to stand on sidewalks still needed a great deal of work this week. The medium range weather forecast indicates good ... Full Story

Letters to the Editor: Dec. 4, 2008

Lundberg Missing Facts on Global Warming Kevin Lundberg's  "Lundberg Report" in last week's Berthoud Recorder demonstrates his desire to continue the George W. Bush practice of basing his positions on blind ideology, rather than on fact. He cited "Christopher Monckton of Brenchley's article published by the American Physical Society" as evidence of growing scientific rejection of global warming and human impact. He neglected to add the APS comment that accompanied the article: "No ... Full Story

Nite Nite for Nightwinds

By Shari Phiel Berthoud Recorder It was with great sadness that, late last week, I learned a Berthoud institution in the business community was closing its doors. Ann Materasso announced she would be closing the Nightwinds retail tack shop after 27 years in business. “The current economy and the growth of the online internet business has forced us to reevaluate our business model,” said Materasso. Although she will be closing the store’s brick-and-mortar location, Materasso won’t be ... Full Story

Defense Will be a Strength for Coach Randy Earls'

By Michael Hicks Berthoud Recorder Make no bones about it, when one scouts the Berthoud girls’ basketball team, at least early on during the 2008-09 season, two things will be pretty clear. One, the team should be as tenacious on defense as anybody else out there. And two, the Spartans will need to look elsewhere for some offense with five of its top seven scorers from a year ago gone. That’s just the facts that Randy Earls’ squad faces. “I think we’ll play as good of defense as any ... Full Story

Spartans Boys Basketball Sets Sight on Brighter Future

By Michael Hicks Berthoud Recorder Coming off a 1-22 season a year ago, it’s easy to see that confidence wasn’t a strong suit for the Berthoud boys’ basketball team. But 2008-09 brings a new season and a brighter outlook for the Spartans. Besides, they can only go up from here, right. “We have a better attitude this year. We’re all coming up with our heads high. We’re taking last year and brushing that off and coming out this season fresh,” said senior point guard Ryan Barron. ... Full Story

View from the Sidelines: Middle School Runners Earn

By Michael Hicks Berthoud Recorder Kiah Leonard and Ally Klaes earned their right to run at this weekend’s AAU Youth Cross Country National Championships in Decatur, Ala. Unfortunately, due to financial reasons, they won’t be there. But that doesn’t take away from what they accomplished. At the District 10 meet at Brighton Sports Complex last month, Kiah finished fifth and Ally seventh in the midget girls’ division.

BMX Report : Turkey in Tulsa

By P.J. Dipentino For the past eight years I have had turkey in Tulsa. Every Thanksgiving weekend the best BMX riders from all over the world travel to Tulsa, Okla. for the ABA BMX Grand Nationals. My 20-year-old son Patrick, a Pro-cruiser racer started this tradition when he was a mere 10 yrs old. I followed the next year and we haven’t missed one since. Patrick “Pyro” Dipentino even won the event at the age of 12, joining a very elite group of Coloradoans to complete this task. For the ... Full Story
