Things I’ll miss about Tom Vaughan

Things I'll miss about Tom Vaughan: 1. His approachability. Tom always made time for whoever walked through the door in spite of what his schedule allowed. 2. His humble demeanor. Tom had a way of imparting his knowledge and experience in a manner that didn't leave one feeling sorry for having asked. 3. His expertise. Tom's experience in research methodology, archival organization, artifact storage and conservation were exemplary. 4. His accessibility. Tom could be seen at any point ... Full Story

This moment in time

Will it be a financial catastrophe with the insurance companies reaping huge profits, Congress members taking jobs as lobbyists in the coming years and the downfall of the US economy while the human suffering continues? Or will it be the long-term opportunity that the American people need? Fair profits for healthcare companies, politcians working for "We the ... Full Story

Letters: Nov. 5, 2009

Our Street Trees One of Berthoud’s greatest assets is its trees; something you probably don’t think about that often, but our public trees are worth over five million dollars. These are just the trees in our parks, cemetery and the public right of way.
