By Vicky Gits

Three men in their 40s who were ice fishing at Evergreen Lake fell through thin ice into the water about 3 p.m. Friday, Jan. 28, about 100 feet from the shore near Evergreen Parkway and Upper Bear Creek Road.

The temperature was close to 60 degrees, and there were large puddles of standing water on the surface of the lake, which was closed to ice skating for the day.

Extension cords blamed in house fire

By Vicky Gits

A chain of old extension cords running from a house to a barn was blamed for starting a fire that burned the side yard and spread from the ground into the attic of a two-story house on Jan. 28. The line was used to keep horses' water from freezing.

Evergreen Fire/Rescue responded to 22756 Meadow View Road about 11:30 a.m., according to Fire Chief Garry DeJong. The fire was extinguished in about 20 minutes. Water had to be transported to the site in trucks.

Outdated information clouds Transparent Jeffco website

By Emile Hallez

Jefferson County’s Transparent Jeffco website, a list of county expenditures aimed at informing the public about government spending, was up to six months out of date until the Courier informed the county of the lack of current information.
Early this week, the most current procurement card expenditures, which include items ranging from Colorado Bureau of Investigation background checks to movie rentals for the jail’s inmates, were listed as July 6, 2010, from when the information was updated in late October.

Roll sisters: Mountain/foothills roller derby league begins recruitment drive in Evergreen

By Stephen Knapp

Three hard-hitting recruiters rolled into this old mountain town last week, prospecting for ladies 21 and older who think they have the right stuff to be “Derby Girls.”

“We’re starting a roller derby league for the mountain towns,” explained Brenda “Switchkitty” Barringer, a tall, slender and not especially menacing Central City resident wearing a gentle smile and a soft-pink T-shirt. “It’s called Old Mountain Town Roller Derby, and this is our first recruiting meeting.”

By Emile Hallez

The commissioners, who recently received a 1,354-signature petition favoring the new district, on Tuesday rejected the county’s participation in the venture.

Commissioners delay repayment for loan linked to campaign contributors

By Emile Hallez

Jefferson County on Tuesday granted a decade-long grace period on a loan of more than $6.4 million to an undeveloped metropolitan district for construction of the C-470 and Alameda interchange.

Green Tree Metropolitan District, which is governed by at least one developer who has contributed substantially to Jeffco Republican campaigns, borrowed the money in 2007 from the county to help construct the $17 million interchange.
