  • Homecoming - 50 years for Niwot High School

    Bruce Warren|Sep 14, 2022

    It took 50 years, but Niwot High School finally played and won a truly "home" football game. And a steady mist throughout the evening didn't seem to put a damper on the attendance, or the team's overall performance. The 50th anniversary of the opening of Niwot High School brought out former students, players and faculty from across the years as the school celebrated with a 15-6 victory over Skyview in the first varsity football game ever played at the school on Sept. 9. The school, which opened...

    Transportation Eric Bergeson, vice-chair of the Niwot Local Improvement District (LID) Advisory Committee, said what was on everyone's mind during a presentation by Kathleen Bracke of the Boulder County Planning and Permitting Department: "Nothing makes it easier to access Niwot."

  • New lecture series begins from Niwot Historical Society

    Hannah Stewart|Sep 14, 2022

    Railroads are like the veins going to and from the heart of the country. In years past, they were numerous, a near constant; today, they almost seem like something from the past. Similarly, as there are increasingly more talks about sustainable energy, conversations about the use of coal seem to be on the decline. Local historian Larry Dorsey is coming to Niwot’s Left Hand Grange on Sunday, Sept. 18 at 1:30 p.m. to discuss the rich history of the area, especially as it relates to coal mining and railroads. His upcoming lecture, entitled “Black...

  • Story Behind the Name: Canar Field

    Kathy Trauner and Leigh Suskin|Sep 14, 2022

    If you're raising some young baseball players, or just have a love of the game, you probably know Canar Field at the Niwot Youth Sports complex known as Hangge Fields at Monarch Park. It's the largest of the six fields, often used for "senior" players between 13 and 15 years old. Jason Canar of Longmont remembers when Canar Field was christened back in 1986, and the field still holds great meaning for him. "I'm incredibly proud, just to have it have that name," he said. Canar Field wasn't named...

  • Improving air quality in your home

    Katrina Stroud|Sep 14, 2022

    Lately, wildfires burning in Montana, Idaho, Washington, Oregon and California, have made it nearly impossible to see the Rocky Mountains from the Niwot-Gunbarrel area, and the air quality is noticeably hazy. Luckily, there are some ways in which you can improve the air quality in your home: • The most obvious solution is to decorate your rooms with houseplants. NASA has revealed that houseplants can remove up to 87% of air toxins within 24 hours. Other research has shown that indoor plants improve concentration and productivity, reduce stress...

  • Cougars win 15-6 in first-ever home football game

    Isaac Stephens|Sep 14, 2022

    The Niwot Cougars came up big this weekend in a historic game, winning their homecoming game and the first ever-home game in the school's 50-year history. Niwot alumni from as far back as 1972 showed up to the game, still repping their school spirit almost 50 years after they graduated. While the community banded together, the Cougars put on a show that didn't disappoint. Niwot started with the ball against Skyview High School in Thornton (2-1 , and almost put a scoring drive together, but it...

  • Student-Athlete of the Week: Gabe Martinez

    Jack Carlough|Sep 14, 2022

    Multi-talented is perhaps the best way to describe Gabe Martinez. In addition to becoming an Eagle Scout in February, the Longmont Christian School senior has taken on both baseball and tennis during his prep career. Because LCS doesn't support a boys tennis team, Martinez joined the Niwot High program during his freshman year. Cougar head coach Aimee Hites has utilized Martinez, a doubles player, in a swing role this season, which has him practicing with varsity but playing most of his matches...

  • Niwot boys tennis falls to Cheyenne Mountain in mid-season test

    Jack Carlough|Sep 14, 2022

    In about one month's time, the Niwot boys tennis team will be squaring off against Colorado's top talent in the state championships. Head coach Aimee Hites' Cougars got a taste of that level of play on Sept. 8 when defending Class 4A co-champions Cheyenne Mountain visited campus. Disappointment soon arose, though, as Niwot, which placed third in state last year, mustered little success in a 5-2 loss to the Red-Tailed Hawks. Senior Luke Weber won the No. 1 singles match (6-1, 6-2) and junior LiCh...

    Jessica Walker|Sep 14, 2022

    A cheer tunnel of young Niwot Youth Sports athletes assembled on the new Niwot High School football field last Friday to welcome their favorite NHS football players onto the field for the first time ever. Many stayed on a soggy and cold night to watch Niwot High's football team win their first homecoming game played at the school. Two days later, on a bright and sunny morning, it was their turn to play. The Niwot Youth Sports flag football athletes made their debut at home at Niwot High School...

  • NHS softball team has busy homecoming week

    Deborah Cameron|Sep 14, 2022

    As if NHS homecoming week events weren’t exciting enough, Niwot’s softball team played in a tournament at Barnes Softball Complex in Loveland. The schedule stretched through four games from Friday to Saturday, with Friday’s play leaving the girls rushing to participate in the Homecoming Week parade and then get to Friday night’s first home football game. Saturday’s games were canceled due to rain and poor field conditions, which was a mix of disappointment and relief for players who no longer had to rush after the games to change into form...
