  • Local jeweler makes hopeful necklace

    Abigail Scott|May 6, 2020

    Jeanette McPherson first started making jewelry out of necessity instead of desire. From 1998 – 2000, McPherson owned Mount'n Memories, an antique shop in downtown Niwot, and described her initial foray into jewelry making, "Much of the (antique) jewelry required restringing or repairing. I became adept at jewelry design out of necessity, plus my desire to turn someone else's trash into another's treasure." Now, McPherson owns Little Wing Jewelry and uses her self-taught skills in silversmith t...

  • Vapor Distillery makes and donates sanitizer to community

    Abigail Scott|Apr 22, 2020

  • Local nonprofits get creative to stay afloat

    Abigail Scott|Apr 22, 2020

    Our local nonprofits do tremendous work in supporting the Boulder County community. However, amidst the COVID-19 pandemic and market drop, they have taken a hit.

  • Upside down and rightside up living during COVID-19

    Abigail Scott|Apr 15, 2020

    I always figured if I made it through a Colorado winter living in my built-out Dodge ProMaster cargo van, then everything else that came my way would be a piece of cake. However, I never considered a pandemic, no one really did. I couldn't have fathomed how quickly my life would change, and I'd have to get used to a new norm, all over again. I rely on the public sphere for a lot of the stuff I need to make my day to day life work - recreation centers, coffee shops, parks, campgrounds, etc. As a...

  • Niwot's places of worship suspend services

    Abigail Scott|Mar 25, 2020

    In small towns, churches are much more than simply places of worship to gather on Sunday mornings. They provide a space for neighbors to socialize, for newcomers to meet people, and for those without company to have some, if even just for a few hours. With the closing of most public and private businesses and gatherings limited to no more than 10 individuals, churches in Niwot and Gunbarrel are forced to figure out other ways of bringing the community together. Pastor Janet Kettering of...

  • 24th annual Soup, Soup and More community dinner

    Abigail Scott|Mar 4, 2020

    In the midst of a busy life, it's tempting to overlook the need for good conversation and a home-cooked meal. We spend time speeding through the work and school week just to make it to the weekend. We savor quick moments shared with family and friends, but downtime never really lasts long before the next errand, chore, or to-do list item calls our names. In this modern society, we grow isolated in our comforts, choosing to pass time connecting through screens instead of face to face. We forget t...

    Abigail Scott|Oct 30, 2019

    Our town is home to many noteworthy eateries offering mouthwatering dishes and a place to catch up with family, friends and neighbors.

The father-son team that set out to create a community gathering space did so with a few things in mind. They wanted their establishment to be no-frills where beer was more of a facilitator for fantastic memories, instead of the main event. The logo features toys, because the dynamic duo behind each brew believes that we are all still kids at heart. While Finkel & Garf is b...

  • Sprouting wings leads to growing unexpected roots

    Abigail Scott|Oct 23, 2019

    Last year, my partner and I moved to Niwot for the dual purposes of not wanting to live in Boulder while wanting a place that somewhat resembles Taos, the place we just moved from. We found this quiet little haven and knew it would work for what we needed – a soft place to land while we plotted our next adventure. In May, I set my sights on the next horizon. Inspired by the Van Life trend that has spread like wildfire amongst my millennial generation, I purchased a large, bulky, white cargo v...

  • Family Village Co-op reopens its doors

    Abigail Scott|Sep 11, 2019

Founder of Family Village of Longmont, Melanie Piazza, believed there was a disconnect occurring, in part d...
