Niwot Cleanup Day A Huge Success
BY MARY WOLBACH LOPERT
If numbers don’t lie, then Niwot Cleanup Day and all the volunteers who helped run it racked up some impressive figures. According to Kathy Koehler, 12 and one-half dumpsters were filled with yard waste, trash, metal and recyclables; five bins of electronics were collected, and three industrial bags of block Styrofoam were dropped off. The swap meet area was also a huge success.
A big thank you goes to the following:
Niwot Community Association Volunteers: Cindy Butler, Pat Murphy, Terry Larsen, Hossein Toolee, Judy Seaborn, Emily Limback, Diane Zimmermann, Bob Zimmermann, Kathy Koehler, Dave Limbach, Heidi Storz, Dick Piland, Ericka Thayer, Ben Thayer, Leigh Charley, Chester Shans, Gloria Knudtson, Jim Eastman.
Niwot High School Volunteers: Jessie Slepicka, Braiden Wells, Elaine Grafelman, Roberto Ramirez, Victoria Sutton, Hannah Rieder, Isabel Victorio, Karla Salinas, Sam Spell, and Emily Pritchard.

To the NHS Class of 2013
BY MILENA HALEK
MOTHER OF HARRISON LANG
It happens in the blink of an eye; one day they are starting kindergarten and the next they are graduating from high school. Many of this year’s 2013 graduating seniors started out in Niwot Elementary and have formed friendships that will last them a lifetime.
Of course, much has changed during their first 12 school years. As kindergarteners they survived the turn of the century, 2000. Remember how exciting it was to get your first cell phone? And now we live with
iPhones, iTunes, and iPads.
That said, many things have remained constant. I’m sure they will look back and remember these years very fondly. They have come from a wonderful close-knit community that will always support them and be proud of them. We are so fortunate to live in this type of community.
Congratulations graduating seniors of 2013. We are so proud of you and your accomplishments. We wish you the best in your future endeavors as you enter a new and very exciting world.

Silver Creek High School

“Guys and Dolls” Star
Odds are the SCHS Theatre Company’s Rachel Cooper has a brighter future than the character she brilliantly played in the company’s recent production of “Guys and Dolls.”
Cooper portrayed Adelaide, the night club singer/dancer whose 14-year engagement to gambler Nathan Detroit is the cause of her constant state of anxiety and illness. Cooper stole the show with her ability to successfully use a convincing Brooklyn accent while singing challenging songs like “Adelaide’s Lament” and “Marry the Man Today” in her powerful voice, while maintaining Adelaide’s simple-minded, naïve character.

Niwot High School
BY RANDI WILLEMSEN
Each year the Niwot High School Boosters host After Prom to keep students safe, off the streets, and away from troublesome temptations. This year was no exception with almost 400 students in attendance and more than 40 volunteer parents working the event.
The NHS gym and commons area was transformed into a sweet shop and featured a candy buffet, casino tables and several options for kids to release some built-up energy. The students participated in jousting competitions and other activities, with many opportunities to win prizes.
