  • Let's Talk About...Snacks

    Elise Marylander|Jun 14, 2023

    Ok. Do you remember when you were a kid and you would leave the house in the morning and be gone all day with nothing but your bike? No hat, no sunscreen, no water bottle, no cell phone, no Google maps, no tracking device, and most importantly, no SNACKS! Each of those deserves some discussion but let's just focus on snacks. When did we suddenly need to eat every hour or so? There is snack time at school, snacks at every practice and game, snacks in the car, snacks at the lake, snacks when you...

  • CW & Twenty Hands High returns to Rock & Rails for their sophomore year

    Deborah Cameron|Jun 14, 2023

    This week, CW & Twenty Hands High are returning to the Rock & Rails stage for their second year, bringing their country, Southern rock, outlaw, red dirt sound with them. Local musician Taylor Shae will open for them. I talked to the band's founder and frontman, CW Wooten, just after the band finished a performance at Beasts and Brews, a taphouse and butcher shop in Colorado Springs. Our conversation started not by talking about music or his latest show, but about the food that was there. Wooten...

  • Slepicka Tractor Show a hit in Niwot

    Deborah Cameron|Jun 14, 2023

    This past weekend, the Slepicka Tractor Show was held just off 79th Street in Niwot near the Monarch Road intersection. Attendees enjoyed beautiful weather for the show, as they browsed among decades' worth of restored tractors, engines and other farm equipment displayed on the front of the farm of long time Niwotonians, Jerry and Marsha Slepicka, who have owned the property since 1994. Co-sponsored by the Niwot Community Association, the show gave a peek into a past way of life in the area with...

    Kathy Koehler|Jun 14, 2023

    Three classmates who attended the Niwot School, which included grades 1-8, located where the Diagonal Highway now runs, met at the Left Hand Grange No.9 in Niwot on May 31. The gathering was coordinated by the Niwot Historical Society with photos and images collected to be added to the Niwot historical records. John Montoya, who lives in Wheat Ridge, planned a stop in Niwot during a road trip to visit the Niwot Cemetery and the area where he grew up, and was excited to arrange a visit with two...

  • Lenny lands in Niwot

    Kristin Alger|Jun 14, 2023

    When Lafayette, Colo., nurse Kara Plese traveled to St. Lucia for vacation in April, she assumed she'd come back with a few souvenirs. But she certainly never expected the one she actually brought home. On a walk near the resort where she was staying, Plese and her friends came across a small dog who looked scared and emaciated. "He was so skinny," she said. "He ran past us and almost got hit by a car. He was so mangy – I felt really bad for him." Plese wasn't sure she would see the dog again b...

  • Open Studios returns to former feed store

    Bruce Warren|Jun 14, 2023

    Open Studios, a non-profit artist's organization based in Boulder, has returned to Niwot after a successful run last holiday season when the organization put on a display of art by local artists which was for sale during the month of December. Since then, property owner John Fischer has refurbished the interior and exterior of the property. The Niwot Cultural Arts Association worked with Fischer to make the former Niwot Rental & Feed property available to artists, and Open Studios is the first...

  • Rock & Rails in full swing

    Kristin Alger|Jun 14, 2023

    Dark skies and the threat of rain didn't deter a large crowd from enjoying the second Rock & Rails concert of the season on Thursday, June 8. The music kicked off at 5:00 p.m. with Dean Himes, a local country artist. Himes wowed the crowd with a combination of his original songs and well-loved covers. Himes is no stranger to Niwot having played at the Niwot Tavern, First Friday Art Walks and Rock & Rails in the past. Himes was inducted into the Colorado Country Music Hall of Fame in 2022. Headli...

  • June book review: "Fogg in the Cockpit"

    Hannah Stewart|Jun 14, 2023

    I joke with my friends that World War Two stories "find me." Somehow, if I'm in a bookshop looking for a new read, there's a good chance that at least one of the books I'm drawn to takes place during this period of world history-but usually, I find myself reading fiction. That's why "Fogg in the Cockpit" was such an exciting recommendation from Inkberry Books. Richard and Janet Fogg's WWII story is a real one: that of Richard's father, Howard Fogg. Howard Fogg was a fighter pilot, railroad...

  • Student Athlete of the Week Lex Bullen

    Jack Carlough|Jun 14, 2023

    Lex Bullen doesn't much like talking about herself. The 2023 Niwot High School grad instead prefers giving credit to the countless number of individuals who've helped her reach impressive heights as a runner. After moving from Stargate Charter School in Thornton to Niwot High prior to her sophomore year, Bullen helped the Cougars to three straight girls state titles in both track and cross country. Yet, she remains most fulfilled knowing that she benefited from a program that treated her as...

  • Niwot alums Ryan Gonzales, Tyson Christensen at the heart of Nuggets' NBA Finals run

    Jack Carlough|Jun 14, 2023

    Although it has required some long hours, Niwot High alums Ryan Gonzales and Tyson Christensen are enjoying every minute of the Denver Nuggets' first NBA Finals trip in franchise history. No, neither Gonzales nor Christensen is suiting up for head coach Michael Malone, but both have been instrumental to the Nuggets' home-court success this postseason. Gonzales, a 2002 Niwot grad, works for Kroenke Sports & Entertainment, which owns the Nuggets, as a Senior Director and Producer of Broadcast...
