And The Winner Is… BY NELLIE NIBNOSE
Our readers have spoken and we at the Courier have listened. As a result, we can all breath easier now that the Courier duck has a name. In case you missed the big reveal at the 6th Annual Left Hand Valley Courier Duck Race, our darling ducky’s new name is (drum roll please)...
Our thanks to long-time Gunbarrel resident Theo Dierks for the quack up of a suggestion. Theo won the $20 gift certificate so generously supplied by Whistlestop Frozen Yogurt.

Laurie Grassmeyer Named To Elite Group
BY KAREN COPPERBERG
Laurie Grassmeyer CDPE, GRI, with RE/MAX Professionals, and one of the Courier’s own, has been honored in the September issue of 5280 magazine as a Five Star Professional Real Estate Agent.
Five Star Professional conducts research throughout the US and Canada to identify professionals who provide quality service to their clients.
5280, along with Crescendo Business Services, surveyed Denver-area residents who purchased a home valued at $100,000 or more, as well as 10,000 magazine subscribers. Surveys were also sent to mortgage and title companies, resulting in the elite group, which represents less than seven percent of licensed agents in the Denver area.
This year, out of 13,700 Metro Denver residents holding a real estate license, only 927 of the top-scoring real estate agents made the list, and Grassmeyer was one of them.

Bank robbery last week; Bear this week! On Thursday Sept. 13, about 60 people gathered around a tree in the Bennett yard, 90 Franklin St., in Niwot (the corner of Franklin and Niwot Road) to watch a 300 pound adult male bear getting comfortable in the crook of a tree approximately 50 feet off the ground. According to wildlife officials, they are just watching the bear for now, and keeping him from getting too frightened. At this point wildlife officials are hoping the bear will come down by himself, which may not happen until evening.
