  • Tenney, Holley to represent EHS at state

    ARVADA — The last time Madison Tenney played at Indian Tree Golf Club she posted her highest score of the 2014 season. She topped that score four days later at The Club of Rolling Hills. But in the week prior to the 4A Metro West Regional on May 8 she prepared herself for what Indian Tree had to offer. Whatever she did it worked.
    The Evergreen senior carded a 5-over 79 to finish third, earning her third straight trip to the 4A girls golf state tournament.

  • Legislative session ends; election run-up to come

    The 69th General Assembly completed its work last week and adjourned. There was considerably less acrimony than in the previous two years, and a variety of important issues made their way successfully through the process. During closing remarks Wednesday night just before the Senate adjourned, Minority Leader Bill Cadman of Colorado Springs went out of his way to praise Senate President Morgan Carroll for the way the Senate handled its work in 2014 in a more bipartisan fashion than had been the case in previous years.

  • Bellatti’s homer propels Cougars

    Evergreen  shortstop Josh Bellatti is insistent that nothing was going through his mind when he was standing at the plate with a one ball and two strike count in the bottom of the seventh inning against Lewis-Palmer. A trip to All-Star Park for the 4A state baseball tournament was on the line and Bellatti delivered in a big way.

  • Pac Rugby dominant, recaptures state title

    GLENDALE — AJ Eleniewski stared at the scoreboard, seeing the results of toughness, good defense and hard hits. It also reflected a team that wanted badly to win.
    What he saw at Infinity Park on May 10 was a 31-3 PAC RFC victory over the Jr. Gents of Aspen in a Division II rugby state championship game that was every bit as one-sided on the scoreboard as it was on the pitch.

  • Doyle kicks off campaign in House District 25

    Evergreen resident Janet Doyle, a member of the park district board, is entering the state political arena as the Democratic candidate in House District 25. 

    “I am a moderate, pragmatic person, and I have been disappointed by the extremism in the state legislature. I think that interferes with forward progress,” Doyle said in an interview Saturday.

  • Rosenberg, Walton, Lehman to continue serving on Indian Hills fire board

    After their re-election to the board of the Indian Hills Fire Protection District on May 6, Marc Rosenberg, Ron Walton and Kelley Lehman will continue serving with members Paul Pettit and Scott Kellar.

  • The wit and wisdom of Richard Lamm

    When former governor Richard Lamm speaks, people laugh at his quick-witted humor. They also listen to what Lamm has to say about health care, education and the national debt.

    “We are leaving our children such a staggering debt. If the government were to be audited, we’d be put in jail,” Lamm said during his presentation to the Rotary Club of Evergreen on May 9 at Evergreen Country Day School.

  • Linn, Ellis ready to take seats on EPRD board

    Evergreen residents Peg Linn and John Ellis say they are looking forward to serving on the board of the Evergreen Park and Recreation District after their success in the May 6 election. They will join EPRD board member Peter Lindquist, who was re-elected, and members Janet Doyle and Andrew Adamowski at the May 27 meeting.

    Board members Kit Darrow and Mark Footer are leaving office.

    Ellis, Linn and Lindquist all say they are hoping to encourage greater community involvement with the park district. 

  • Upper Bear homeowners seek faster Internet

    About 100 homeowners in the Upper Bear Creek neighborhood plan to lobby CenturyLink for Internet upgrades, now that money from a state telephone fund can be used to pay for broadband infrastructure.

    About $50 million is reimbursed to Colorado phone carriers annually from a statewide High Cost Fund. The money is collected through a 2.6 percent surcharge on land-line and cell-phone bills to pay for telephone infrastructure, mostly in rural areas. State legislators recently passed a bill that will make the money available for broadband infrastructure upgrades as well.

  • Dawn chorus at Evergreen Lake brings new bird sightings

    Time flies. Already it is Friday, May 9, as I write, and spring, which has come and gone several times this past week, is now promising another 15 to 16 inches of snow on Sunday. Every day, the grass grows greener outside my window.

    I am at the moment at the Life Care Center of Evergreen, since I slipped at home and hurt my back. My hope is that a few days of physical therapy will set things right so that I can go home. I really need someone to live in with me. So far, I haven’t found anyone, so it may be awhile.
