To the Editor, thank you Senator Lundberg

To the Editor, thank you Senator Lundberg

I would like to thank Senator Kevin Lundberg for helping me with a problem I had with the Colorado Dept. of Revenue which had incorrectly processed my income tax return. I filed my return expecting a small refund, but then received a letter from the DOR stating I owed over $1,700 in taxes plus an assessed penalty. After my tax preparer wrote DOR listing the many errors they had made, I waited over two months for the matter to be corrected. After contacting Senator Lundberg for help with this ... Full Story

High School Forensics Coach responds

Dear Editor: Thank you for running a story on the Berthoud Forensics (Speech and Debate) Team Qualifying for the National Tournament in Kansas City, MO. The hard work and talent that (recently graduated seniors) Ann Smith and Nicolas Alexander have demonstrated over the last two years have earned them national recognition, and your support for their success is greatly appreciated. There are many reasons why I became a teacher and a forensics coach: I think high school is a particularly ... Full Story

Limiting Berthoud Volunteer Membership?

Limiting Berthoud Volunteer Membership?

There are some opinions blowing around Berthoud these days that claim the town needs a voted ordinance that would require a volunteer to have a primary residence within town limits for a year in order to serve on any advisory board or commission, period. I’m worried about this for several reasons. While some statutory requirements exist for commissions such as Planning and Zoning, there are none for other commissions. There’s a good reason for that: Each commission is very different, ... Full Story

Thank you from the After Prom Committee

Dear Editor, The Berthoud High School After Prom Event Committee would like to give a special thank you to all the volunteers for making this year’s APE another successful evening.

Third Street a city dump?

What can be done about the mess Jones has on Third Street? It looks like a city dump. Why can't he put a fence up? It is getting worse. Guess we all can just use our yards for a junk pile. Lee Esterbrook tax payer in Berthoud

From Alex’s Cub Scout Leader

Greg Carter add these notes as a comment to Alex Sabado's obituary. I thought it appropriate to give his remarks a place on the main page. Nearly every seat in the beautiful sanctuary at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church was filled on Saturday morning. Family, friend, classmates, scouts in uniform, BMX riders and more turned out to say goodbye to Alex. Here is a remembrance by Greg Carter: “If you can fill the unforgiving minute with sixty seconds worth of distance run ... Full Story

To The Editor: Justin Smith

The choice is obvious! Looking at the candidates for Sheriff, Justin Smith has my vote. Not only has he demonstrated his commitment to the community as a deputy over the last 20 years, he has gained the support and respect of his peers in the public safety community. In talking with Justin, here are some of the things that I found out. Justin has been a guest panelist for Leadership Ft. Collins, preparing future leaders for our community. Justin is routinely an invited panelist for the State ... Full Story
