  • Johnson resigns from school board

    Robin Johnson resigned from the Jeffco school board on Monday night, said Helen Neal, chief of staff for the board.

    The resignation is a result of Johnson moving out of the county. Johnson represented District 1, which covers the north part of Jefferson County.

    “I didn’t hear anything about it until Monday night … when Johnson sent a letter to each board member,” Neal said.

  • Heavy rains damage downtown Evergreen businesses

    Pati Kroll, manager of Evergreen Clothing, was carrying clothing Tuesday from the store to E Town Outlet because of damage the building sustained from Monday evening’s heavy rains. Kroll said she was worried about the rain-soaked ceiling collapsing and damaging goods in the store.

    The driving rain had poured through the back stone wall of the store and wiped out electrical connections to the computer, cash register and phone system, Kroll said.

  • First-time runners use competition as a tune-up

    IDAHO SPRINGS — Matthew Kempton had heard a lot about the Georgetown to Idaho Springs Half Marathon, but the 28-year-old Denver resident had never run it — until Saturday.
    “It seemed like a good idea. I’ve heard good things about the race,” Kempton said. “I’ve wanted to come up and do it. It seemed like a good year to come up and do it.”

  • Senior Peterson prepared for 2013 season

    Kyle Peterson is committed to his trade. The Evergreen senior golfer played in so many tournaments this summer that there were, in his words, too many to count.
    Yet it should come as no surprise that he was in contention in quite a few of those tournaments, even winning a Rocky Mountain Junior golf tournament in Broomfield in May with a two-day total of 1-over-par 145. It is those experiences that Peterson hopes to benefit from when Evergreen High opens the 2013 season Aug. 14 at Hyland Hills Golf Course in Westminster.

  • Evergreen area principals take a field trip

    The mountain area principals went back to school last Thursday — and not just to one school, but to 11.

    The principals, a few Jeffco administrators and the two Outdoor Lab School principals boarded what they named “the magic school bus” and took an all-day 80-mile tour of seven elementary, two middle and two high schools. They started at Parmalee Elementary, went to the Conifer schools and then to Evergreen, ending at Evergreen Middle School.

  • Racing toward the school year

    Two schools, an “Amazing Race” game and one goal: getting teachers and staff prepared for the 2013-14 school year.

    Playing a game might not sound like the typical way to get educators ready for teaching, but for Evergreen High School and Evergreen Middle School, it’s a fitting start to the new year. Who says staff development can’t be fun?

  • Skin treatments available at Aesthetic Lounge

    The Aesthetic Lounge in Evergreen is all about skin.
    Colorado is a place where sun and wind can wreak havoc on skin, and The Aesthetic Lounge can help minimize the damage and make people look more youthful.
    Owner Leigh Ann Jordan said everything done at the shop is medical grade, and in addition to the typical injectables and facial treatments, it also does what she calls odd things such as laser treatments for foot fungus.

  • The HEAT is on

    Firefighters and emergency workers usually are the first thanked after devastating wildfires or crises, but countless other people and groups often go unnoticed.
    That’s just fine with Scott Halladay and his volunteer Jeffco HEAT rescue team.
    Jeffco HEAT, which stands for Horse Evacuation Assistance Team, has been helping rescue large animals — everything from horses to llamas, and one time, even an ostrich — during Colorado emergencies for more than a decade.

  • Local artist’s work on display in Loveland

    Evergreen artist Harold Linke was selected to place a piece in the Benson Sculpture Garden in Loveland. This is an honor bestowed on only a handful of artists, and Harold’s piece was installed on July 13 at the park. The piece he was asked to install is a life-size edition of “Girly Curl.”
