Dudley Field. Whether it was his disappointment in the outcome or disgust in how the game turned out doesn’t really matter. The scoreboard said all he needed to know: Windsor 35, Berthoud 13.

1642: What’s Next? Back to School, Already?

By Ralph Trenary Berthoud Recorder The reaction of some of my friends and neighbors to the start of the new school year has been surprising. Then, I have to remember that my own high school experience was more than a little out-of-the-ordinary. When I started junior high in the fall of 1974, my high school area was bursting at the seams, with near-certainty of continued increases in the number of students, and dismal prospects to get school bonds passed for expansion or construction. ...
