Around Town: Can You Hear Me Now?

By Gary Wamsley Berthoud Recorder I decided this week to change my cell phone service. I had been with Sprint for several years and I hated the phone I was using and the coverage did not extend even as far as Greeley and Eaton.

That proved to be a frustrating experience. It is difficult to tell how a ... Full Story

Around Town: It Takes a Village

By Gary Wamsley Berthoud Recorder The county fairs are over and it looks like it was a good year for both fairgoers and for exhibitors. As I went over the lists of the Berthoud people who competed in all the categories the fair had to offer I was struck by two things. First is the sheer number of judging events. The lists provided by the fair staff were enormous. For some reason, although the horse events were first, the results were among the last we received. As I looked over the horse ... Full Story

Historic Barn Series By Jenny Anderson Berthoud Recorder The Little Thompson Valley Zweck-Lemmon farm has a long history of hardship and neglect, ending in a half-century of love. William K.
