  • Protecting local nonprofits should be a priority

    By Greg Dobbs

    How would you like it if you lived in New Jersey — home of the Meadowlands, home of this year’s (sad, sad, sad) Super Bowl — only to find out that much of the publicity, not to mention much of the revenue from the big game, has been co-opted by the state of New York?

  • A bad ending; positive steps needed

    You had to know it wouldn’t end well. And it didn’t!

  • Snowy owls seen more often in northern states this year

    This winter has brought unusually large incursions of snowy owls into the northern states. These big white beautiful owls nest on the arctic tundra, well above timberline, and regularly winter across southern Canada.

    Elmgreen’s 17 points, seven rebounds paces the Lady Cougars
    GOLDEN
    — Emily Elmgreen had a team-high 17 points and seven rebounds, while Hannah Orr added 11 points as Evergreen won for the seventh time in eight games 50-37 over host Golden on Feb. 13.
    Seven players scored for the Lady Cougars (14-7 overall, 9-3 4A Jeffco League), including seven points from Samantha Kisiel and six from Lauren Troeger.
    Golden, which only trailed 36-33 entering the fourth quarter, dropped to 10-11, 6-6 in league play.

  • Cougars’ best bet denied state bid

    BROOMFIELD — It was a confidence boost that Lane Hanson was hoping to build on. His victory over Valor Christian’s Coby Welch a week earlier at the Pre-Regional Rumble was a first for the 113-pound Evergreen junior. It would take a second, this time in the 4A Region 1 consolation semifinals, for Hanson to make it to the state tournament. Unfortunately, it wasn’t to be.

  • Cougars make noise at state

    The Evergreen Cougars might have had a young ski team in 2014, but don’t let that fool you: They’re still pretty good on the slopes. They proved that Feb. 13-14 at the CHSAA state championships at Eldora Mountain Resort in Nederland.

  • Column: EHS swimmers savoring the moment

    FORT COLLINS — It’s been a couple of years in the making, but the Evergreen Lady Cougars finally got over the last hurdle. A team that’s been knocking on the door of a 4A girls swimming state championship since the 2012 meet finally blew the hinges off in 2014.
    In 2012, Evergreen was second, albeit a distant runner-up to repeat champion Thompson Valley. In 2013, the Lady Cougars finished third after a disqualification in the meet-opening 200-yard medley relay denied them of the top honor. In 2014, there was no denying.

  • Lady Cougars win state swimming title

    FORT COLLINS — Head coach Jeanne Godaire didn’t want her team to look too far ahead. But once the Evergreen Lady Cougars qualified for 18 spots in the finals of the 4A state girls swimming championships, it was their title to lose.

    This year, they wouldn’t lose it.

  • Mountain area native competed in Sochi

    Olympic cross-country skier Noah Hoffman has fond memories of playing behind the Hiwan Homestead Museum and at Bergen Meadow Elementary School as a youngster.

    Hoffman, 24, who lived in Indian Hills and then in Evergreen until he was 7, is a member of the U.S. Nordic ski team and is competing in three events in Sochi, Russia. So far, he has placed 35th in the cross-country men’s skiathlon and 31st in the cross-country men’s classic.
