  • County tractor removed from Little Gaynor Lake

    Hannah Stewart|Mar 23, 2022

    Earlier this month, a piece of Boulder County earth moving equipment fell into Little Gaynor Lake, south of Oxford Road between 95th Street and Highway 287. Mike Foster, agricultural resources manager with the county, said that the county had installed equipment called "solar bees" in the lake to help reduce odor complaints; they do this by churning the lake water. Due to decreased water levels, these bees were no longer floating and instead stuck in the mud; as such, they needed to be removed....

  • Letter to the Editor

    Mar 23, 2022

    It is with profound sadness and an incredibly heavy heart that I share with you the news that Cinder has crossed the rainbow bridge. Cinder was not my dog but was adopted on Jan. 16 and lost by his adopters when he bolted from their car without a leash. Our team of search and rescue volunteers had shared numerous posts all across social media and I had wanted to make sure those who had been following, those who had kept a watch out for him, those who expressed their deep concern for his...

    Kristen Arendt|Mar 23, 2022

  • Time to wake up the garden, or is it?

    Deryn Davidson, Colorado State University Extension Boulder County|Mar 23, 2022

    Our clocks have sprung forward, longer days are upon us and warmer weather is on the horizon. Of course, we should be prepared to get blasted with more cold days and hopefully some snow, but we are well on our way to the spring gardening season. What does this look like for you and your outdoor spaces? Are you itching to get out and start clearing and cleaning up your garden beds in preparation for things to green up? If so, I can relate, but I'm here to say, don't do it! It's important to know...

  • Niwot girls soccer holds off Skyline

    Jocelyn Rowley|Mar 23, 2022

    High school soccer in March is not known for its great weather or its top-notch play, and Niwot's home debut on March 16 against Skyline was a case in point-at least in the first half. Fortunately for those in the Cougars half of the stands, the home team was able to overcome the sluggish start, and eventually came away with a hard-fought 1-0 victory. Afterwards, third year head coach Jenna Machado explained that the youthful team has yet to find its identity, but the new dynamics are starting...
