  • EHS’ Tenney, Holley soak in experience

    This year’s 4A state girls golf tournament on May 19 and 20 could be viewed as a changing of the guard for the Evergreen Lady Cougars. Senior Madison Tenney left one final impression before moving on to college, while freshman Natalie Holley is just getting her feet wet.
    Tenney carded a 35-over-par 179 to tie for 27th place, while Holley tied for 51st with a 50-over 194 at the Country Club of Colorado Springs.

  • AHEAD OF THE CURVE

    Nick Kapande has a wish. He wants to see more pitching prospects developed in Colorado so that they can make it to the pros. That, as much as anything else, is why the owner of Nick’s Pro Fitness brought Randy Sullivan’s ARMory Power Pitching Academy boot camp to Evergreen on May 24-25 for a camp about injury prevention and increasing velocity.
    “It’s about throwing correctly so that you can throw harder,” Kapande said.

  • Montessori kids take on a hot issue

    Residents with fireplace ashes to throw away need to know the proper way to dispose of them.

    A seven-minute video made by first- through third-grade students at the Montessori School of Evergreen offers some tips.

    Put ashes in metal buckets — not plastic buckets or paper bags — and cover them with water, according to information in the video. Don’t dump ashes on the ground outside if there’s any chance they could smolder and start a fire, the video instructs. 

  • Spring thaw could help in search for missing hikers

    As the days get warmer, search-and-rescue teams are hoping enough snow will melt on Mount Evans to find out what happened to two missing hikers from Minnesota.

    Searchers have now spent an estimated 5,000 hours looking for father and son Damian McManus 52, and Evan McManus, 19, of St. Louis Park, Minn., said Bill Barwick, an Alpine Rescue Team spokesman. The two were reported missing April 6 after they did not return from a spring-break trip to Colorado. Their SUV was found parked at Echo Lake Campground.

  • Homeowners struggling to keep fire insurance

    An Evergreen homeowner in the Hiwan Hills neighborhood recently spent $3,500 to have 18 trees cut down around his home to keep his State Farm fire insurance policy.

    Other homeowners have not been so lucky. One said his insurance company canceled his fire insurance policy recently. He declined to give the address of his rural Clear Creek County home. A Floyd Hill resident said recently that the price of his fire insurance policy doubled overnight.

  • Barks and Belts fund-raiser planned June 1

    Isaac Mohr is looking forward to the Barks and Belts fund-raiser on June 1.

  • Another outdoor market coming to Bergen Village

    Bergen Village will have two outdoor markets this summer: the annual farmers market on Tuesdays and a new Hummingbird Evergreen Market on Sundays.

    Both will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The farmers market opens June 3 and will continue through Aug. 26. The hummingbird market opens June 8 and will run through Aug. 24.

    This is the 15th year for the farmers market, which is operated by Colorado Outdoor Markets, and it promises to have more food this year.

    Never mind that Isaac’s mom, Jackie Mohr, is the executive director of Drive Smart. Animals and EAPL are near and dear to Isaac’s heart.

  • Discipline suited him well

    Even assistant principals get called to the office occasionally.

    On May 19, Jim Jackson, Evergreen High School’s assistant principal in charge of discipline, was called to a mock office in a skit during the senior farewell assembly. The school not only said goodbye to its seniors but to Jackson, who is retiring at the end of this month.

    “You treat kids with respect and dignity,” assistant principal Tony Barnett said to applause from students.
