Nathalia Souza Spring recently started working at Colterra Food and Wine in Niwot, and the restaurant has joined the push to bring more people into the area. 

Spring specializes in sales and event marketing, and her goal is to increase business at not just Colterra, but Niwot as a whole.   

“Colterra is the main reason why I decided to work with [Heap] because I see so much potential,” Spring said. “In a small community, everyone is connected and I saw opportunity for growth. And when the tide rises, it lifts everybody.”

Transitioning from high school to college doesn’t just happen when students graduate, but instead starts  when juniors prepare to take college entrance exams. 

Since 2001 the ACT has been the required exam for Colorado students to take to submit to colleges, but the Colorado Department of Education had other things in mind. Shortly before the end of 2015, the selection committee for the Department of Education decided to go with The College Board, makers of the SAT, instead of the  ACT.

Many pets tend to stay indoors with their owners. Although some dogs are mainly outdoor pets, not many other pets are left outside on a regular basis—especially not cats. 

Cats tend to be indoor pets that can take care of themselves for the most part; they’re a pretty low maintenance pet for those who work everyday or go on vacation a lot. There are also many feral cats—a domestic cat that has been born and raised without humans, or hasn’t had contact with humans in a long time—roaming the streets.

The Left Hand Valley Courier has been recognizing local volunteers for 19 years by nominating them for Left Hand Laurels. Niwot and Gunbarrel are full of community members who give their time to help their communities flourish in many different ways.

Because Niwot is unincorporated it runs on people who volunteer their time, either to local organizations such as the Niwot Community Association (NCA), Local Improvement District (LID), Niwot Cultural Arts Association (NCAA), Niwot Historical Society (NHistS) and Niwot Business Association (NBA), or to community events and parades, and various town projects.

This week of Niwot High School basketball was a tough one for the boys, starting with a close loss against the Cougars’ biggest rival and the best team in the league, Longmont. 

Although they weren’t able to get a win against the Trojans, the Cougars were still able to hold them to under 50 points and had an opportunity late to close out the game. The final score was 48-38 but it was much closer than the ten-point deficit indicated.
