    Deborah Cameron|Jul 5, 2023

"I've been to Rock & Rails, I've seen what a party it is and how much fun it is," Baumgartner said. "The concert series has gotten such a great reputation. Everybody who knows the series gets excited when I tell them we're playing there." This year's concert includes a few notable elements. Audiences will enjoy...

  • What's with the flags around Niwot?

    Scott Barto|Jul 5, 2023

    American flags are a common decoration and symbol to see flying during national holidays that celebrate the United States of America. Most notably, the 4th of July, Memorial Day, Flag Day, and Veterans Day are holidays where the flag is seen frequently. However, American flags have decorated Niwot this year for longer than usual. According to the Niwot Community Association, the "Flag Fairy" recruited some volunteers this year to raise American flags all around Niwot, including Cottonwood...

  • Pancakes, patriotism, and proceeds

    Scott Barto|Jul 5, 2023

    "Why would anybody ever eat anything besides breakfast food?" This excellent question was posed by the fictitious character, Leslie Knope, played by Amy Poehler, from the television show "Parks and Recreation." Quite frankly, it appears a large majority of Niwot agrees. The only thing that makes breakfast foods better is when that food is shared with friends, neighbors, loved ones, and new faces. That, and when a portion of the proceeds go towards helping our community. This year's pancake...

  • Let's Talk About...Middle Initials

    Elise Marylander|Jul 5, 2023

    Ok. Do you use your middle initial? Some people do and some people don't. I can see why you would use it to distinguish yourself from all the other "John Smiths" out there. I can see why you would use it to score an email address that would be otherwise taken. Some people use it out of habit. Others use it to sound important. Some just like the way it sounds. And some people don't have a middle name. But the whole middle initial thing gets complicated. What about hyphenated names? If your name...

  • Story Behind the Name: Little Raven Trail

    Jessica Checkas|Jul 5, 2023

    Little Raven Trail is a small street connecting a wide circling loop of Legend Ridge Trail in the Niwot’s Legend Ridge subdivision. The name “Little Raven” is a reference to a Southern Arapaho Chieftain, who came from the same tribe as Chief Niwot, the namesake of the town of Niwot. The two chieftains’ stories are interconnected. Little Raven (1810-1889) was an Arapaho Chief who lived in the area which would become part of Denver, Colorado, including the area along the South Platte River a...

    Kristin Alger|Jul 5, 2023

    Although storm clouds threatened and a few sprinkles danced their way through the early evening, the weather was no match for the well prepared and excited Rock & Rails crowd on Thursday, June 28, where two bands new to the event were ready to entertain the crowd. The night opened with the Teresa Storch Duo, made up of Storch and her husband Peter Lacis. No strangers to the stage, the Duo have toured internationally, performing at festivals in Scotland and Ireland. Their music focuses on...

  • Bumper to Bumper: Final funding for CO-119 Mobility Project secured

  • Explore Niwot trails for health, wellness and fun

    Urszula Bunting|Jul 5, 2023

    The weather has been amazing, and the outdoor air quality in Boulder County is better than most states in North America. It's time to dust off the bikes, hit the trails, and explore the healing power of nature and physical activity. There are seven community trails in Niwot and one regional trail that run through town. The community trails are from 0.6 to 1.5 miles long, mostly with gravel surfaces. They are relatively short and easy, perfect for quick exercise before or after work or a slower...

  • Great Scott! Niwot's Emerson Scott wins national tramp & tumbling championship

    Jack Carlough|Jul 5, 2023

    Niwot resident Emerson Scott may be the perfect example of how one can accomplish more when enjoyment is prioritized over results. As the saying goes, work becomes play, and for Scott, his "play" resulted in a pair of national titles at the USA Gymnastics National Trampoline and Tumbling Championships in late June. Scott teamed up with Seattle's Toby Scott to win the open 22+ skill/age category synchronized trampoline before earning gold again in the individual trampoline event. The 22-year-old...

  • Student Athlete of the Week Kye Toothaker

    Jack Carlough|Jul 5, 2023

    Following a busy yet fruitful start to his summer, Kye Toothaker's two weeks of down time is now complete as his junior cross country season at Niwot High School looms not far in the future. His time away was certainly well-deserved, though, after he competed in both the CHSAA track and field state championships and the Nike Outdoor Nationals in June. Results-wise, Toothaker helped Niwot win the Class 4A 800-meter relay - along with Rocco Culpepper, Ryder Keeton and Carlos Kipkorir - before...
