Tim really spearheaded the sign project and Carrie has been active on the LID which has really been doing a lot lately in the community. Tim is a go-to person whenever you have a problem.

For Courier Duck, There’s No Place Like Home
BY NELLIE NIBNOSE
After traveling 1940 miles from Florida to Colorado, the Courier Duck has made it back. While still in seclusion until the Sixth Annual Left Hand Valley Courier Duck Race, the duck is thrilled to be back in our fair burg.
On top of that, it’s thrilling to know that so many people have cared enough to send in names. Kudos for all the great suggestions.
The winning entry will be announced at the Duck Race at Nostalgia Day on Saturday, Sept. 8.
The race will be held, as usual, on Dry Creek at Centerbridge Road. Everyone is holding their breath that the creek doesn’t live up to its name. I’m thinking of organizing a rain dance a few days before the race.

The new regulations apply to the Niwot Rural Community District, which encompasses the commercial area along Second Avenue, and Franklin and Murray streets.

BY MARY WOLBACH LOPERT
Rep. Dickie Lee Hullinghorst (D-Gunbarrel) has been named to the Center For Women Policy Studies’ National Honor Roll of State Legislators.
Hullinghorst said, “I consider it a great honor to be named to their honor roll. I’ve worked on women’s rights and reproductive rights since the early 70s. I’m proud of where we’ve gone and we have a lot more work to do. I’ll be working on women’s issues and … reproductive rights in the state legislature when I have the opportunity to do so.”
According to a press release, the center, located in Washington D.C., honors legislators who pledge their “mutual commitment to the goal of equality and empowerment for American women” and agree “to work together to overcome discrimination based on sex, race, class, age, immigration status, sexual orientation, religion and disability.”
Hullinghorst is the minority whip in the Colorado State House of Representatives and is completing her third term.
