2008 Larimer County Election Well Done

Scott Doyle, Larimer County Clerk & Recorder   We Americans have just had the largest and one of the most contentious election years this country has ever seen. Larimer County voters used more early voting opportunities than ever before, and a high percentage of the ballots cast were at the courthouse prior to Election Day. Then Election Day came and went without a hitch, and we are now busy catching up and working to certify the election to the state. (more…)

The Future Looks Secure

By Gary Wamsley I am very pleased with the outcome of the Berthoud Community Library District mil levy vote. A lot of you voted and voted overwhelmingly in support the library. It has been a long time coming. The library board was discussing this issue when I first started attending the meetings four years ago. Now, after many studies and hard work by a great many people, the district and its funding is a reality and the library’s future looks secure. Thanks to all those on the board, the ... Full Story

Memories on Veterans Day

By Gov. Bill Ritter Some memories never fade.  They stay with you long after the sun has set, long after your surroundings have changed … long after the world has become a different place. It doesn’t matter how long ago the events of war took place to those who lived through the conflict. For those who went to war and came back, a part of them will forever remain in that place where those memories were made. On Nov. 11, America pays tribute to the millions of brave men and women who ... Full Story

New Friends

Ralph Trenary Berthoud Recorder   There are some challenges and peculiarities to moving back to your wife’s hometown, especially when her family has been here for over 140 years. I quickly realized that she can trump me hard on recognizing places and people.   For the first six months after we moved into the new house it was a regular experience to go out -- anywhere, anytime -- and she would talk to, or at least point out, three people she recognized. Some were her school friends, ... Full Story

Former Berthoud Resident Always on the Run

By Michael Hicks Berthoud Recorder For Kenneth Pope, running used to be just a break in the day. As a college student at the University of Colorado in the late 1970s, he used running as a way to take a break in the day, not to mention to stay in shape. He would jog for 30 or 60 minutes. But approximately five years ago, the former Berthoud resident took his daily exercising a step further. He decided he wanted to qualify for the Boston Marathon. “At the age of 47, 48, I started picking up ... Full Story

Keep Cozy and Save Money

By Laurie Hindman Berthoud Recorder Winter is finally here, furnaces roar to life on these chilly mornings, and, with escalating utility bills in mind, parents all over town are telling shivering, complaining children to “put on a sweater.” As I write, a toasty fire in our (EPA rated, clean-burning) wood stove is blazing cheerily with our fat cat and two dogs spread on the hearth in a furry, contented heap. Before we installed the stove in our drafty, un-insulated, built-in-1883, home ... Full Story

BHS Seniors Cherish Big Opportunity

By Taylor Lee Berthoud Recorder DENVER –– Being on a team that makes it to the state tournament is a pretty invigorating experience. Berthoud’s five senior volleyball players know just what it’s like, and some of them were fortunate to experience it twice. Last year, the team went 0-3 in pool play. But this year, the Spartans went 2-1 and competed in a tiebreaker game against Lewis-Palmer for a chance at the semifinals. Even though they lost that match, for seniors such as Kelley ...
