  • EMS student named 'Av for a Day'

    So what’s it take to get named “Av for a Day?” Ask any one of his teachers, and they’ll tell you that following Evergreen Middle School student Konnor Propst’s lead would be a pretty good start.

  • Fire district board to try out new meeting spaces

    To make its meetings more accessible to the public, the Evergreen Fire Protection District will hold regular monthly board meetings on a trial basis in the auditorium or training room on the first floor instead of the much smaller second-floor boardroom at the fire district headquarters on Bergen Parkway.

    Fire Chief Garry DeJong proposed the change at a special meeting of the board on Jan. 12, saying it would make it easier for the board members to see the public face-to-face.

  • Rec district ends 2007 with a surplus

    Since the Jan. 15 Evergreen Park and Recreation District public board meeting was incoming executive director John Skeel’s first, it’s just as well that it was fairly routine.

    A brief rundown of 2007’s budget picture topped the evening’s agenda, along with a look at financial prospects for the coming year, and both topics contained more good news than bad.

  • Phipps phenomenal on home floor

  • Cougars hang tough in loss to Lancers

    Rather than the washed out rap music, the Evergreen boys basketball team should have warmed up Tuesday night to the theme from Mission: Impossible.

  • Red-tailed hawks are 'Rhapsody in Blue'

    Ames Rau called us last Sunday to say that he had been down at Bear Creek Lake Park, where he had witnessed a red-tailed hawk refurbishing its nest. It may seem odd that any birds are preparing to nest when we are experiencing well below freezing temperatures and several inches of snow cover the ground, but it is a common practice for the large resident hawks and owls to do so.

  • Fire district revenue up 12 percent for 2008

    The Evergreen Fire Protection District will receive a modest boost in operating funds for 2008, thanks to an increase in the assessed value of property in the Evergreen area.

    The district budget projects total revenue of $4.2 million in 2008, an increase of 12 percent from $3.7 million budgeted in 2007, reflecting the increase in property valuations from the parts of both Jefferson and Clear Creek counties within the fire district.

  • Wrestlers show heart in loss to Mustangs

    ARVADA — There was obvious pride in Steve Hitchens’ voice and eyes Thursday night.

    Part of that might be the fact the Evergreen coach found out he’s going to be a father soon.

  • Blackstock leads Cougars past Trojans

    Charlie Blackstock played the role of Florence Henderson last Wednesday night.
