VOLLEYBALL OH-SO-CLOSE: Spartans Show Grit in Bitter

By Taylor Lee and Michael Hicks Berthoud Recorder DENVER –– As the Berthoud volleyball team headed to the 4A state tournament last weekend at the Denver Coliseum, many wondered if the same result that befell the Spartans last year would happen again. Last year, the team went 0-3 in pool play, putting a damper on a highly successful season. But Berthoud wasn’t about to let that happen a second year in a row. The Spartans went 2-1 during pool play this go-around, winning their first two ... Full Story

By Michael Hicks Berthoud Recorder Remember a couple of weeks ago when I wrote about how the seeding would be determined in the 3A state football playoffs?

How Berthoud, because of the way the Colorado High School Activities ... Full Story

Mountain Lions at Home in Colorado

By Deborah Huth Price Berthoud Recorder An old poster titled “Daydreams” features a housecat dreaming of all the big cats in the wild—possibly its ancestors from centuries ago. The average housecat, while in many ways sharing characteristics of its larger relatives, is a pet and has adapted to human attention and household living. Mountain lions face a different type of adaptation. As one of the top predators in the country, they are definitely not pets. With the increased number of ... Full Story

The Vote by the Numbers

In past years, local newspapers such as the Berthoud Recorder have been able to report the numbers of voters and how the community voted on particular issues and candidates. Precinct voting made sure ballots cast in Berthoud were Berthoud votes. But things are not that simple this year. Thad Pawlikowski, data analyst with Larimer County Clerk and Recorder Elections Office explained that of the three voting methods - Election Day in-person at vote centers, mail-in, and early voting – each ...

Early Voter or Right on Time?

By Megan Reece Berthoud Recorder Nov. 4 was Election Day. Some readers may need this reminder because, with the high number of voters using early voting and mail-in ballots, many did not have to visit their polling places this year. From the look of the Wayside Inn at lunchtime on Tuesday though, it appeared that many Berthoud residents still came out to vote the old-fashioned way, in a curtained booth with pen and paper. "I find it a little bit patriotic," said Paul Jones. The experience of ... Full Story
