    Deborah Cameron|Mar 13, 2024

    Work on the historic Frank Bader Home at 210 Franklin Street in Niwot has resumed, following a stop work order imposed by Boulder County designed to ensure that proper permitting by the site's owner, Nassar Development, was in place for the site at the corner of Second Avenue and Franklin Street. Work cessation took place when residents noticed that the scope of work appeared to exceed the limits allowed by the permitting. Denise Grimm, Principal Planner, Historic Preservation for Boulder...

  • Niwot Historical Spotlight: Residential Old Town Niwot

    Deborah Cameron|Mar 6, 2024

    The Left Hand Valley Courier is spotlighting various local neighborhoods, their history, issues and general nature. This week, the Courier is spotlighting the Old Town residential neighborhood. Thanks to its proximity to the railroad depot, Second Avenue is one of the oldest areas of commerce in town. As the earliest Niwotians created businesses on both the eastern and western side of the railroad tracks, now the Diagonal Highway, they chose to live in or around where they worked. Eventually,...

    Deborah Cameron|Feb 14, 2024

    Second Avenue has one of the oldest concentrations of independent small businesses in Niwot but it's also known as a place with a long history of female entrepreneurship. That history continues to the current day. "When we started there were a lot of women-owned businesses in town, and there still are," said Jan Kahl who owns Niwot Jewelry & Gifts with her son, Jason Scarbrough. Angie Miltersen, who owns Few of a Kind Vintage + Mercantile, sought out Niwot as a place to run her first business...

    Deborah Cameron|Feb 7, 2024

    Although Pawxatawney Phil has determined spring is right around the corner, based on last weekend's storm, winter seems determined to hang around.

  • Niwot Town Talk: 2024's First Snowstorm

    Deborah Cameron|Feb 7, 2024

    Last weekend, Niwot and the entire Front Range was blanketed by more than 4 inches of heavy, wet snow. The large flakes quickly accumulated, making driving a slush-filled challenge for anyone who ventured outside, especially later in the afternoon. Anyone staying inside was able to see a frosted, snow-globe effect to anything beyond the panes of their window. We went to Old Town and Cottonwood Square to talk to community members about their snowy experience. The snow didn't deter visitors....

  • Women-owned businesses in Cottonwood Square

    Deborah Cameron|Jan 24, 2024

    As one of two main hubs of small businesses in Niwot, Cottonwood Square brings together a variety of retail stores. Businesses range from restaurants to clothing stores, and from florists to fitness studios. A surprisingly high number of these enterprises are run, either in whole or in part, by women. Many owners have several things in common. They enjoy the Niwot community and the support it gives local businesses. They also share a "give back" or "pay-it-forward" attitude. "I feel like Niwot i...

  • Colterra project paused to reconsider space planning, development needs

    Deborah Cameron|Jan 10, 2024

    Redevelopment, particularly on historic properties, can be unpredictable. It's challenging to know exactly how a project will proceed until an excavator begins to dig into the ground. It's become apparent that this is the case with the project at the former Colterra restaurant and Bader House at 210 Franklin Street in Niwot. The building which housed the Colterra restaurant began life as a barn, and has been demolished due to damage from a fire several years ago, leaving the historic Bader...

  • Niwot florist provides flowers for the TV show "Married at First Sight"

    Deborah Cameron|Dec 13, 2023

    Deborah Cameron|Nov 29, 2023

    At the November team banquet for the Niwot High School girls softball team, head coach Bobby Matthews reiterated what he had said earlier in the year: softball can be a rough sport, and the best players don't always come out on top.

The softball team placed third in the Longs Peak League and was ranked 32nd in the state. However, their play...

  • October's First Friday Art Walk full of quality and variety

    Deborah Cameron|Oct 11, 2023

    The sun is setting earlier now and this past First Friday Art Walk seemed to be a little more subdued than usual. It may have been the drop in temperatures, but in the early evening, midway through the event, art lovers seemed to be heading indoors rather than lingering on sidewalks. Regardless, the quality of the work remains high, with plenty of variety for participants to view as they take part in the event. The hub of the evening’s art shows was at Osmosis Art and Architecture, on 2nd Avenue. Linda Hufferd greeted patrons as they e...

  • Cougar softball ends regular season with another win

    Deborah Cameron|Oct 11, 2023

    Last Tuesday, in front of a crowd of parents, students and other onlookers, the Niwot High School girls softball team played the final game of the regular season, coming away with a dramatic win. The Cougars run-ruled the Roosevelt High School Rough Riders by a score of 11-1, a victory that was all the more satisfying because it was against a team that they endured a heartbreaking, 1-0 loss against earlier in the season.

    Deborah Cameron|Sep 20, 2023

    The Niwot High School girls softball team bounced back with two blowout wins, not letting a single defeat in last weekend's tournament throw them off course.

  • First time Rock & Rails performer Los Cheesies will bring new energy June 29

    Deborah Cameron|Jun 28, 2023

    One of the most enjoyable things about Rock & Rails is the mix of bands that play each week. It's possible that the only thing each week has in common is that whoever is playing on stage, they are going to be danceable. And Los Cheesies might be one of the most unconventional bands to step onto the bandstand stage at Whistle Stop Park. Their mix of fusion reggae, ska, Latin, '80's, rap and psychedelic rock stylings is blended with wacky humor that could winkingly be called "Yankovian" (as in Wei...

    Deborah Cameron|May 17, 2023

    Over the next few months, the former feed store on 2nd Avenue will continue its reimagined purpose as a home for art and culture in Niwot.

  • Left Hand Laurel - Jeff Wolcott

    Deborah Cameron|May 3, 2023

    The Niwot community is home to artists of all sorts. The area's painters, writers, dancers, musicians, potters, sculptors and others enrich Niwot and do what they can to give back to the town. Niwot resident and woodworker Jeff Wolcott exemplifies this inclination. He not only appreciates living here, but he answered the call when he was asked to be part of the effort to restore Spear Lodge Man, and the other iconic Native American tree carvings that are located on Niwot Road near the...
