  • Evergreen turns it up in the 2nd half

    If there was ever a tale of two halves, it was the Evergreen Lady Cougars’ 4A state tournament opener on Friday night.

    The first half wasn’t exactly anything to remember offensively, outside of a 9-0 run to close the first quarter. Evergreen led at the intermission 19-7, thanks largely to a defense that held the visiting Lady Stallions without a basket for 8 minutes and 23 seconds.

  • I-70 reopens from Morrison to Genesee; dog park meeting postponed

    Snowy conditions made commutes on I-70 near Lookout Mountain treacherous on Thursday afternoon, causing several accidents and closing the highway. While lanes in both directions had been closed earlier between Golden and Genesee for accident cleanup and road treatment, all lanes had reopened as of 6:15 p.m.

    CDOT reported earlier Thursday afternoon that two separate crashes on westbound I-70 at the Chief Hosa exit briefly closed one lane of the highway. Shortly afterward, all westbound lanes were closed from Golden to Genesee because of winds and snow.

  • EFPD again delays decision on adding solar panels to stations

    The Evergreen Fire Protection District has again delayed a decision on whether to add solar panels to several of its fire stations to reduce energy costs — favoring instead further exploration of other energy-saving measures.

    At a meeting Feb. 14, board members cited a desire to implement “low-hanging fruit” such as LED lighting, light sensors and other energy efficiencies to defray the short-term and long-term cost of installing photovoltaic panels at several of the district’s fire stations.
