    By Craig Harper

    Evergreen’s top returning hitter Sarah Kay didn’t have her typical big offensive game in the Aug. 22 season opener. But the fourth-year starting catcher impacted the game early in a big way with her arm and instincts behind the plate.

    Kay kept Boulder, playing its fifth game in eight days, off the scoreboard in the top of the first inning by picking off its first two batters at third base.

  • EHS slow to find rhythm in opener

    Luke Camp said he wasn’t nervous, but the level of play will take some getting used to. It took a while for the Evergreen senior, who played at No. 2 singles last year, to find a comfort zone at No. 1 singles in the Cougars’ season opener Aug. 21 against D’Evelyn. By the time he found it, however, it was too little too late, at least this time around.

    Camp had his serve broken four times and he committed 11 double faults in a 6-2, 6-4 loss to Tom Hudson in Evergreen’s 7-0 rain-delayed loss to the Jaguars at the Wulf Recreation Center tennis courts.

  • Parents, students admire renovations at King-Murphy

    The fourth-grade classrooms at King-Murphy Elementary School have that fresh-paint, new-carpet smell.

    “I can’t tell you how many times I’ve told the students to look at the carpet,” said fourth-grade teacher Samantha Gorenstein, knowing the carpets won’t be clean for long as students settle into the daily — and sometimes messy — routine of the new school year.

  • Youths give it a tri

    Buchanan Rec Center on Sunday morning was inundated with kids swimming, running and biking in a triathlon that was meant to simply be fun.

    Nearly 130 children ages 5 to 13 swam laps in the pool, ran around one of the Bergen ponds, and biked through Bergen Park. No one timed the event, though lots of parents cheered, waved flags, rang cowbells and took pictures.

  • Park district board discusses priorities for 2015 budget

    Balancing expenses with revenues in the 2015 budget for the Evergreen Park and Recreation District emerged as a top priority for EPRD board members during a work session Aug. 20.

    “We have to have a balanced budget,” board member Janet Doyle said during discussion with other board members and administrative staff. “We don’t (want to) have expenses rising above revenues.”

  • Working in Evergreen

    The workforce in Evergreen is made up of people who prepare food, repair worn shoes, develop social media skills for businesses and individuals, and manage nonprofit organizations that benefit the local and global community.

  • Trails master plan for Evergreen continues on path to completion

    Evergreen residents who came to a second meeting on a trails master plan Aug. 20 saw updated maps with proposed paths designed to make the community accessible for pedestrian travel.

    “We're looking at the feasibility of paths,” said Chris Vogelsang of OV Consulting, the design firm selected for the trails plan project.

    Obtaining easements for the trails, especially through areas where there is private land, will determine their viability, he pointed out.

  • Fine Arts Festival features award-winning creations

    From bejeweled buffaloes to impressionistic paintings and handcrafted wooden spoons, an astounding array of artistic creations was on display at the Evergreen Fine Arts Festival last weekend.

    By midmorning Saturday, the grounds of the Hiwan Homestead Museum were filled with festival-goers looking at various arts and crafts that included handmade clothing and jewelry.

  • Change in the air at Wilmot

    Matt Cormier believes that a new principal should change only one thing during his first year.

    So Cormier, who is now at the helm of Wilmot Elementary School, is changing three things.

    At the top of his list is bolstering communication among faculty, parents and the community, including getting acquainted with students and parents, re-instituting birthday cards for students from the principal, and trying to organize such events as a Wilmot night at a Rockies game.

  • Depth is a concern for Clear Creek girls, boys in 2014

    The tears literally flowed from Jeff Miller when the Clear Creek cross country coach learned that Katie Sullivan was relocating to Summit. It wasn’t just because she was expected to be the Lady Golddiggers’ third best returning runner, but because she is a great kid in general.

    But Sullivan isn’t back and neither is Grace Diekman, a 2014 graduate who was the team’s No. 3 runner in 2013, leaving some uncertainty in Clear Creek’s pecking order with the cross country season around the corner.
