  • EHS slow to find rhythm in opener

    Luke Camp said he wasn’t nervous, but the level of play will take some getting used to. It took a while for the Evergreen senior, who played at No. 2 singles last year, to find a comfort zone at No. 1 singles in the Cougars’ season opener Aug. 21 against D’Evelyn. By the time he found it, however, it was too little too late, at least this time around.

    Camp had his serve broken four times and he committed 11 double faults in a 6-2, 6-4 loss to Tom Hudson in Evergreen’s 7-0 rain-delayed loss to the Jaguars at the Wulf Recreation Center tennis courts.

  • Depth is a concern for Clear Creek girls, boys in 2014

    The tears literally flowed from Jeff Miller when the Clear Creek cross country coach learned that Katie Sullivan was relocating to Summit. It wasn’t just because she was expected to be the Lady Golddiggers’ third best returning runner, but because she is a great kid in general.

    But Sullivan isn’t back and neither is Grace Diekman, a 2014 graduate who was the team’s No. 3 runner in 2013, leaving some uncertainty in Clear Creek’s pecking order with the cross country season around the corner.

    For the Courier

    DENVER — Motivation matters in a sport’s offseason, as golfers Lenny Urbas of Evergreen and Scott Robb of Littleton can attest.

    Neither player was satisfied with his 2013 high school season and both put in the time and effort to improve for 2014. Based on the opening 4A Jeffco tournament on Aug. 13 at Foothills Golf Course, it was a fait accompli.

  • Still singing after all these years

    Relaxing in the afternoon sun at a coffee shop, Evergreen resident Ralph Nichols reflects on his life as a singer and studio musician. 

    After graduating from the University of Southern California with a degree in music education and voice, Nichols began working in recording studios and singing with the Robert Mitchell Boys Choir in Hollywood. 

    “We did Disney movies. … We were like the Hollywood version of the Vienna Boys Choir,” Nichols said.

  • Planners to review proposed changes to Jeffco oil and gas regulations

    The Jeffco Planning and Zoning Commission is scheduled to review proposed changes to the county’s oil and gas regulations at its Aug. 27 meeting.

    The proposed changes would add planned-development and special-use zoning to Section 35 of the county resolution, which sets standards for the drilling and production of oil and gas.

    The amended resolution also would align current setback requirements for oil and gas operations with those of the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission.
