  • A lucky day to be part of Our Evergreen World

    Friday the 13th, an unlucky day for some people, happened to be a lucky day indeed for my friend and fellow birder Warren Roske. Warren saw a northern goshawk on Friday at Evergreen Lake. This is one of the few sightings of a goshawk at the lake. But it was no accident that Warren was birding there, as he, my friend Loie Evans and a few other birding friends try to keep a daily tally of the birds at Evergreen Lake. They post which birds, and how many individuals, they see on a bulletin board on the Lake House side of the boardwalk.

  • The party’s over for state parties

    So it’s come to this. In perhaps the most favorable Republican year since at least 1994, scandal-plagued GOP front-runner Scott McInnis can’t even close the deal on his own party’s nomination, much less the general election. 

  • Cougars closing in on league’s top teams

    BROOMFIELD — No, Evergreen’s boys golf team didn’t win. It’s hard for anybody to come out victorious when you have to play the juggernaut that is Valor Christian match in and match out. But Mike Kuzava is happy, nevertheless.

  • Doubles teams carry Evergreen to early-season sweep

    It may have been only the second match of the season, and second of the day, but sophomore Paul Clancey’s overhead smash to cap a dramatic four-match comeback for Evergreen is one of those highlights that can define a season.

  • Two-way junior lineman Reynolds injures ankle

    Jimmy Reynolds, a junior two-way lineman for Evergreen, was carried off the field Aug. 21 with a right ankle injury during the team’s intrasquad scrimmage at Evergreen High School.

  • Ailing Molholm’s visit lifts his, players spirits

    When the Evergreen Cougars take the field Aug. 27 at Moffat County, Rob Molholm will be on the sidelines. That hasn’t always been considered a sure bet this offseason.

  • Experienced Cougars ready for second year of run-first offense

    Rob Molholm is not a big fan of playing Zero Week, and he’ll tell you that.

  • OktoberPets fund-raiser set for Sept. 10

    If it’s September, it must be time for OktoberPets, the major annual fund-raiser for the Evergreen Animal Protective League, which finds foster homes and provides veterinary care for abandoned animals.

    This year the nonprofit is auctioning a special weekend vacation and private log cabin for two at the 7D Ranch near Yellowstone National Park, 50 miles northwest of Cody, Wyo.

    OktoberPets will be at 5 p.m. Friday, Sept. 10, at the Evergreen Elks Lodge, 27972 Iris Drive.

  • Santaguida pleads not guilty in sister's slaying

    The 19-year-old Evergreen man accused of murder in the death of his 24-year-old sister Elizabeth on Hilltop Drive on April 8 pleaded not guilty to all charges in Jefferson County District Court on Monday.

    The not-guilty plea paves the way for a trial, which is scheduled to begin at 8 a.m. Jan. 21 with jury selection. A pretrial conference was set for 10 a.m. Nov. 15 in District Judge Margie Enquist’s courtroom.

  • Weeds meet their match at Evergreen Lake

    Many mountain residents routinely admire the array of “wild” flowers that grace the landscape, but Evergreen resident Cathy Shelton is quick to point out that some of these beautiful plants are actually noxious weeds.

    That point took root Saturday morning at Evergreen Lake, as 29 volunteers ages 7 to 75 showed up to pull weeds during Evergreen Audubon’s Wake Up and Weed event. Participants packing pruners and a strong work ethic gathered under cloudless skies to battle the botanical invaders.
