  • Ellie’s legacy: Pay it forward, or pay it back

    Out of life¹s worst moments can come life¹s best lessons.

    I’ve seen that at every natural disaster I’ve ever covered, where someone who just lost virtually every personal possession short of the shirt off his back still can manage to voice some variation of, “At least my family is safe, and that’s really all that matters.”

    Well, I just saw that spirit in spades at the restaurant across from Evergreen Lake called Willow Creek. The couple who own it, Kristopher and Curtis Lincoln, lost their daughter more than a decade ago.

  • New book peers into the private lives of birds

    I recently read a review of a new book that stirred my desire to actually read the book, so I called the Jefferson County library to inquire if it was available. The book is titled “The Thing With Feathers” by Noah Strycker, but it was the subtitle, “The Surprising Lives of Birds and What They Reveal About Being Human” that really piqued my interest. They did indeed have it and so within a few days and a bookmobile visit later, I had it in my hands.

    FOOTBALL
    Evergreen tunes up for Mountain Bowl, roughs up TJ
    Tanner Cassin and Dylan Reifeis each rushed for two touchdowns as Evergreen ripped Thomas Jefferson 55-14 on Oct. 2 at Evergreen High School.

    The Cougars finished with 379 yards of total offense, including 239 on the ground. Cassin rushed 15 times for a team-high 90 yards. James Hardy caught a 41-yard TD pass from Reifeis. Cassin also returned an interception 17 yards for a score.

  • Littleton plays in bursts, topples Evergreen in straight sets

    LITTLETON — The Littleton Lady Lions’ girls volleyball team defeated visiting Evergreen in three straight sets 25-20; 25-23; 25-23 at Littleton High School on Oct. 2.

    It was a game of inches throughout each of the three games — one team would lead by two or three points, then make a mistake and hand over the ball, allowing the other team to even up the score. Neither team could manage a solid lead.

  • Lack of experience haunts EHS at 4A state

    Chances are there weren’t too many teams, if any, at the 4A boys golf state championships that were as inexperienced as the Evergreen Cougars. Yet, there EHS was Sept. 29-30 at Walking Stick Golf Course in Pueblo. Unfortunately, that inexperience — with three sophomores and a freshman — came into play.

    Evergreen tied for eighth place in the 13-team field with Discovery Canyon with a 64-over-par 496 total, one shot back of Durango.

  • Raeder adjusts, qualifies for state

    DENVER — Henry Raeder, as Evergreen co-head coach Bob Greenman asked of his players back when the Cougars played D’Evelyn in the season opener, took mental notes on how to play the Jaguars’ Spencer McKay. 

    At regionals, instead of going for the hard shot, he went for more consistency and tried to hit the ball to McKay’s weaker side. The move worked like a charm.

  • Young cast discovers magic where ‘Anything Goes’

    Classic musicals stand the test of time because they have simple story lines, laugh-inducing scripts, and music that sticks with audiences long after the curtain falls. “Anything Goes” is a celebration of the great American musical and one of its greatest composers, Cole Porter. The latest production of this time-honored show, presented by StageDoor Theatre’s high school company, offers a fresh take on this 80-year-old theatrical gem.

  • Entertainment center to open in November

    As workers polish floors and apply paint, owner Dave Wilson talks about his entertainment center, The Wild Game, which is scheduled to open next month in Bergen Park.

    The first portion of the 24,500-square-foot center slated to open in early November is the Rendezvous Tap and Kitchen restaurant, Wilson said.

    While the extensive center is nearing completion, its managers are in the process of hiring about 80 employees to work there.

  • Montessori eighth-graders learn to make a difference

    You can make a difference in the world, even if you’re “only” 13.

    That’s the lesson that 21 eighth-graders at Montessori School of Evergreen have learned as they created community service projects that went above and beyond the typical project for people their age.
