  • Let's Talk About...Diets

    Elise Marylander|Apr 19, 2023

    OK. We have all been on a diet. Whether it's to lose weight (me), avoid allergies (yeah, I am looking at you, gluten), improve your health, or just a lifestyle choice, we have all adopted a diet from time to time. Of course, sometimes that diet is hot dogs, pizza and hamburgers (and don't forget the onion dip and Fritos), but most often it is a choice of certain foods to obtain the desired result. In other words, we are what we eat. I believe diets fall into three basic categories: Food choice...

    Vicky Dorvee|Apr 19, 2023

    Was your house at one time in the middle of a cornfield? Some of Niwot's most interesting history happened as recently as the 1980's and 90's when the downtown streets were just dirt. Shopping meant you were headed to the feed store, and Rev. Taylor's was the place to go for breakfast, lunch and dinner. And yes, many of our houses were just starting to be built on what was once had been farmland. Niwot Historical Society president, Kathy Koehler said, "There were very few trees except for the...

    Bruce Warren|Apr 19, 2023

  • Where are they now: Zeb Baker

    Hannah Stewart|Apr 19, 2023

    He may not have finished high school in Niwot, but that doesn't stop Zeb Baker from considering himself a Cougar. While enrolled at Niwot High School from his freshman through junior year in the early 90s, Baker made a mark on the NHS community: he served as freshman and sophomore class president, as well as student body president as a junior. He was the student representative on the newly-formed Niwot High School Education Foundations. On top of that, he managed the boys' basketball and footbal...

    Bruce Warren|Apr 19, 2023

    With four games coming up during the week of April 17, the Niwot High School Cougars will have their hands full after a 6-4 win over Severance High School April 13. Weather and a shortage of umpires have combined to put the Cougars in the position of playing Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, which will test the Niwot pitching staff given the pitch count limits now in effect. The victory over Severance came courtesy of the Kilpatrick brothers. Sophomore Jagger Kilpatrick went six strong...

  • NHS Track takes 1st and 2nd at BOCO meet

    Bruce Warren|Apr 19, 2023

    With 140 students out for track, Niwot High School track coach Maurice Henriques has a hard time keeping track of all of them. But there are so many elite athletes among that group that the Cougars as a team routinely places first or second at large meets. The BOCO Track & Field meet at Longmont April 15 was no exception as the Niwot girls took first and the boys finished second, behind only Class 5A Erie. “On the girls' side, we scored 210 points, and Longmont was second with 78,” Henriques said. As for the boys, Henriques wasn’t disap...

    Isaac Stephens|Apr 19, 2023

    The Niwot High School girls soccer team played two games this past week, playing both the Riverdale Ridge Ravens and the Northridge Grizzlies. Niwot started the week after a 9-0 win against Severance High School, so expectations were high during their game against Riverdale Ridge. The game was close in the first half, which ended with Riverdale Ridge ahead 3-2, with senior Tiffany Yie and Senior Martha McCarthy scoring for Niwot, but the Ravens put the game away with two more goals in the...

  • Student Athlete of the Week Jeremy Gillett

    Jack Carlough|Apr 19, 2023

    Although he has his own personal goals, Jeremy Gillett is typically thinking about his team before anything else. On April 1, for example, the Niwot High School track and field senior shared that he took immense pride in representing his school as he competed on his home track at the NoCo Series #1 meet. Gillett ran in the 1,600-meter and as the race remained crowded up front entering the final stretch, his final push was motivated by a force greater than himself. "In that last 100 (meters), I...
