  • Hays selected as interim chamber president

    An Evergreen local, who previously was both the Evergreen Area Chamber of Commerce advertising and membership director, has been named the chamber's interim president.

    Betsy Hays, who also served as development director of the Mountain Area Land Trust, will take over the helm of the chamber while its board of directors searches for a permanent president.

    Lin Browning, who was the chamber’s president for four years, resigned abruptly last week, citing family issues.

  • Charter schools see growth in enrollment

    Jeffco’s charter schools saw significantly greater enrollment growth than district-managed schools in the last year, and advocates say that greater availability of choice, high academic expectations and options for home-schoolers are responsible.

  • Radio-controlled cars hit the ice

    Skaters at Evergreen Lake on Jan. 11 were treated to car races on the ice — radio-controlled cars, that is.

    The small race course was in a corner of the rink, and skaters came by to watch as the cars, 14 inches long by 8 inches wide, moved deftly around hairpin turns and through straightaways. Think video games, only much more real and out of doors.

  • BUSINESS BEAT: T&G Flooring joins Evergreen Design Center

    T&G Flooring has added its expertise to the furnishing businesses in the Evergreen Design Center on Meadow Drive. 

    Chris Keale bought the Denver business in 2007 and decided to bring it to Evergreen in October. It specializes in pre-finished and on-site-finished hardwood flooring.

    Keale said he worked for global technology businesses for years. He bought the flooring business so he could work for himself and so he could leave something behind with lasting beauty.

  • Rabbits, hares not as abundant, thanks to predators

    Reprinted from Jan. 25, 2012

    Winter is always a good time to look for rabbit tracks in the snow. There are two rabbits that can be seen in this area and a third that can be seen farther afield in Colorado.

  • Radio-controlled cars hit the ice

    Skaters at Evergreen Lake on Jan. 11 were treated to car races on the ice — radio-controlled cars, that is.

    The small race course was in a corner of the rink, and skaters came by to watch as the cars, 14 inches long by 8 inches wide, moved deftly around hairpin turns and through straightaways. Think video games, only much more real and out of doors.

    Sunday’s races were part of a 10-event series called the Colorado Rally Championship. The races take place October through April, and the cars race on all sorts of terrain: gravel, mud, snow and now ice.

  • Fund-raiser planned for family of sheriff’s sergeant

    Cougars place 14th at annual Evergreen Invitational
    The Evergreen Cougars placed 14th in their annual Evergreen Invitational on Jan. 17 with 17 points. The event was held at Evergreen High School.

    The Cougars had one sixth-place finisher as Lane Hanson went 3-2 at 120 pounds. He scored a 9-3 decision in the first round over Kyle Smart of Fossil Ridge before falling in the quarterfinals to Juan Rosales of Lincoln by a 9-5 score. 

  • EHS perseveres despite foul troubles

    CONIFER — Evergreen girls basketball coach Amy Bahl has said that for her team to be successful, it needs contributions from all five players on the court at that time. 

    So when leading scorer Sam Kisiel picked up two quick fouls early in the third quarter Jan. 14 at Conifer High School, giving her four for the game, it may have been a good thing for the Lady Cougars. It forced them to play more as a team instead of relying on the 5-foot-11 junior’s scoring presence in the paint.

  • Cougars keep Lobos’ offense in check

    CONIFER — A lot has gone the Conifer Lobos’ way lately. Eric Valerio’s boys basketball team — the same program that ended last year with a win over rival Evergreen — had started a school-best 8-0 and was previously ranked No. 10 in CHSAA’s 4A poll.

     But Jan. 14, the Lobos were hosting Evergreen, a team flying under the radar a bit thus far in the 2014-15 season and one that was excited to show what it could do.

    It did quite well for itself as evident of its 60-52 win at Conifer High School.
