My friend and neighbor, Karel Buckley, called me on Monday evening, April 6, too late to make last week’s column, to tell me she had seen her first pasque flower in bloom on Sunday, April 5, and had heard her first hummingbird on the next day, Monday, April 6. These are the two species that people ask about and look for to establish the arrival of spring.

  • Some testing needed for accountability
  • Janson, Lady Lobos serve up a win at EHS

    From time to time, there is a striking dichotomy among opponents, be it differences in physical strength or size. In the case of the No. 1 singles match between Conifer and Evergreen, it was age and skill-level making the game even more exciting to watch.

The end result was Conifer’s third straight victory over its archrival, this time 10-6, at Lobo Field on April 8.
