  • An opposing view on ‘global warming’

    By Evergreen resident Peter Link

    Kevin Trenberth and I have known each other for about seven years. We disagree on global warming. We met again at the Foothills World Affairs Council meeting on Nov. 16, and though we shook hands in greeting, I was dismayed by his introduction of politics into his presentation, for which he used comic slides.

  • Celebrate family, biological and otherwise

    Thirty-five years ago, my husband, Phil, and I spent our honeymoon in England, Europe and Greece. Besides a celebration of our marriage, it was a genealogy trip. Phil has been tracing family history for more than 40 years. He loves it! That’s how I know Phil and I are 14th cousins, which explains the twitch that both of our children have … just kidding — about the twitch, I mean.

    Evergreen Fire/Rescue plans to tighten up pension bylaws that govern benefits for volunteer firefighters.

    The bylaws have changed over the years, and the changes aren’t necessarily recorded formally, John Anderson, a member of the Evergreen Fire Protection District board, said at a meeting Dec. 9. Pension board members and Evergreen Fire Chief Mike Weege plan to research minutes of the pension board’s quarterly meetings to figure out exactly when changes were voted on and when they took effect.

  • Hanson fine-tunes skills as EHS splits meet

    BAILEY — It didn’t take Lane Hanson long to notice a skill difference from wrestling up a weight class or two. Just like the Evergreen senior, who wrestled at 113 pounds last year, most everybody that he’s wrestled this season have also been moving up in weight class and improving on his skill set.

    So he took the Cougars’ annual tri-meet with host Platte Canyon and Clear Creek on Dec. 9 as an opportunity to better his own moves in anticipation of facing stiffer competition later this season.

    “We had a loss (to Mullen, 41-36) and that made the girls really want the win tonight,” Evergreen head coach Amy Bahl said.

  • View from Colorado’s ‘park’ areas is worth the drive

    I am still at Elk Run, where I can receive some assistance when needed. When I look out the windows to the north, I can see the open meadows of Elk Meadow Open Space. When I look east or south, I can see the semi-open areas of widely scattered ponderosa pines across the grassy meadows, beyond which the trees grow closer to each other and a forest is formed.
