    On March 22, the Cougars picked up its second win of the season with a 20-2 victory over Rangeview.

    “I thought the girls played good,” said Evergreen head coach Kevin Krum. “It is early in the season so we still have quite a bit to work on.”

    The Lobos, No. 5 in last week’s CHSAANow.com Class 4A boys lacrosse poll, showed off their offensive skill March 24 at Trailblazer Stadium scoring a season-high 16 goals in the non-league victory over 5A’s Ralston Valley.

    The Elk Meadow dog park has multiple safety and environmental challenges that need to be addressed immediately, an Open Space news release stated.

  • Helping the healthcare system get well

    I hate to say it, but all the discussion about repealing and replacing Obamacare is like rearranging the chairs on the deck of the Titanic. Insurance premiums are just following the costs generated by the way healthcare is practiced in this country. So whether we replace the act or leave it as is until we change the way medicine is practiced in America the costs will be high.

  • Experience spring with Evergreen Players’ ‘The Enchanted April’

    Evergreen Players taps into its own spring on Friday with the 1922 classic “The Enchanted April.”

Destined to be a favorite, screenwriter Peter Barnes reproduced it in 1992, again adapting it to film. It was an Academy Award nominee that year.
