  • Let's Talk About...Your Automotive History

    Elise S. Marylander|Jul 26, 2023

    Ok. How many cars have you owned in your life? If you are young, maybe one or two (or maybe zero). If you are older, undoubtedly several. Your car history is like an archeological dig into your life. Let me explain. Some people carefully choose what they drive, others just need transportation, and still others don't really have a choice. And is your identity somehow wrapped up in the car you drive? In Southern California, the answer is a clear "yes." Here in Colorado, well, you decide. After an...

  • Preschool through Eighth Grade Education: Where childhood thrives and confidence takes root

    Special to the Courier Boulder Country Day School|Jul 26, 2023

    At Boulder Country Day, a commitment to helping each student discover their unique excellence underlies our entire approach — beginning with our firm belief in the benefits of a preschool-through-eighth grade community. While a student body ranging from age 2 ½ to age 14 is certainly a diverse group, we have observed first-hand, year after year, the positive impact of an educational environment that promotes growth and maturity, while also encouraging children to remain connected to the wonder of childhood for as long as possible. Balancing in...

  • Rebecca Folsom headlines Rock & Rails

    Kristin Alger|Jul 26, 2023

    Colorado's unusually wet summer weather caught up with Rock & Rails July 20, cutting short the performance by Rebecca Folsom and her band. The dark clouds and threat of rain held off until just after 7 p.m., when lightning strikes within two miles of the venue, accompanied by a downpour, interrupted the performance. Folsom and the band tried to wait out the storm as concert-goers huddled around the depot building and crowded under umbrellas, but when high winds came up and the rain did not...

  • Book review: "Stay Sweet"

    Hannah Stewart|Jul 26, 2023

    I haven't spent much time in the South-sure, I've been to Disney World and I had what felt like an eternity-long layover in Georgia-but after reading Chris Chandler's book "Stay Sweet: Tales of Quirky Southern Love," I almost feel as though I've lived there. The beauty of this book is its raw honesty. It's part-memoir, part-historical text, and part-personal musings on life, family, and love. Through a series of vignettes, Chandler shares moments throughout her life, many concerning her maternal...

  • Summer construction at Niwot High School

    Jessica Checkas|Jul 26, 2023

    Over the summer, Niwot High School has been temporarily closed while the school’s plumbing system is updated. The school was closed the Tuesday after Memorial Day and will reopen on July 31 after nine weeks of construction. “The school has grown a lot since it opened in 1972,” said Niwot High principal Eric Rauschkolb. “Some of the plumbing was original and we were starting to have some problems with the pipes backing up.” Due to the age of the building and the growth of the school, there was an odd mix of older pipes and newer systems w...

  • Niwot High School football prospects looking good

    The Niwot High School football season is officially gearing up as the players have played their last 7-on-7 games. The games took place this summer against both Weld Central High School and Silver Creek High School (twice). Their first two games were successful as they took home "wins" and gained experience. While their final game last Wednesday was a close "loss," it was still a great learning moment for the team, according to the coaching staff. The 7-on-7 games are non contact, with no...

  • Student Athlete of the Week Mats Lehan

    Jack Carlough|Jul 26, 2023

Plus, Lehan attended prospect camps at both the University of San Diego and Colorado School of Mines with the goal of getting noticed by college coaches. "They were a lot of fun," Lehan said of his experience at the prospects camps....
