    Elise Marylander|May 17, 2023

    OK. Have you ever taken a trip with your adult siblings? I mean no spouses, no children. Just you guys? I recently took a trip to Lake Powell with five siblings and five other old friends, and two teenagers. Can we just talk about the logistics of that for a minute? Logistics for family events, whether reunions, birthdays, weddings or just a vacation can be daunting. But let's just focus on 12 people from various parts of the nation converging on a barren southwestern portion of our country...

  • Niwot High's Music Department world tour

    Scott Barto|May 17, 2023

    The Music Department at Niwot High School is going on a world tour - sort of. In June, the NHS choir is headed to New York and Carnegie Hall, and the orchestra is going to Finland and the Baltics. The marching band is planning to go to Walt Disney World next year. For many years, the Music Department at Niwot annually alternated which "sub-department" (choir, band, orchestra) would get to travel during the summer. In the few years preceding the pandemic, it had become common for each...

  • Summer forecast: More art at the former feed store

    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. "At this time, the climate isn't good to start building any kind of development for that lot, so we decided to do a minimal fix up and get the Niwot Cultural Arts Association (NCAA) involved and create something that would encourage people to come downtown," said John Fischer, who co-owns the building with his wife Xan.

  • Student Athlete of the Week Jed Kilpatrick

    Jack Carlough|May 17, 2023

    The Cougars likely aren't fighting for a state regionals berth without Jed Kilpatrick having arguably the best season of his Niwot High School baseball career. Through May 12, the senior shortstop owns career-highs in batting average (.472), on-base percentage (.548) and fielding percentage (.932) while leading Niwot to 12 wins, the program's most since 2014. Kilpatrick believes that Niwot's emergence is due in large part to an improved culture built by a still fairly young group of Cougars....

    Isaac Stephens|May 17, 2023

    The Niwot High School girls soccer season is over, and with a record of 6-8-1, they met expectations. Niwot had a long season, playing 15 games, winning their opener and their finale, but fell just short of making the playoffs. Niwot's season opener was against Centaurus, with the Cougars winning 2-1 in a second overtime shootout, beginning the season with a hot start. The rest of the week did not go Niwot's way, as they fell to Palmer Ridge, a sign of their eventual slide. The next two weeks...
