  • Cougars honor seniors, rip Lobos

    By Matthew Van Deventer
    For the Courier

    It was an emotional win for Evergreen’s softball team Sept. 20 against Conifer, as the team’s seniors were honored only months away from graduating.

    The field was dressed in blue and gold streamers with “2015” proudly displayed on the fence in painted styrofoam cups. To the right were posters with the graduates’ pictures and profiles. To the right of the dugout were the graduating jersey numbers: 23, 42, 22, and 18.

  • Slow start doesn’t derail Cougars in shutout of rival Lobos

    CONIFER — The intent of the Evergreen boys soccer team was evident: score as many goals as early as possible. After all, in the Cougars’ first four victories this season, one was in double overtime, another after scoring two late second-half tallies and two more by a goal each.

  • Cougars use pass, defense vs. Rams

    Green Mountain never really stopped Evergreen’s bread-and-butter running game, said head coach Rob Molholm, but it was his team’s miscues that led the Cougars to a more passing attack early in its homecoming game Sept. 19 at Evergreen High School. Whatever the case, it worked.

    Dylan Reifeis was 11-of-21 passing for 169 yards and two touchdowns, and the Cougars defense, as dominant as it has been all year, shut down 4A Green Mountain for a 23-3 victory.

  • EHS pulls through, qualifies for state

    LITTLETON — Mike Kuzava wasn’t going to name names, but years ago an opposing Jeffco boys golf coach commented to him that Evergreen kids tend to fold under pressure. That has always stuck in his craw. This year’s, Evergreen’s boys golf team would refute that statement.

  • Q&A for Senate District 16 GOP candidate Tim Neville

    What are your qualifications for serving as a state senator from this district?
    Having served successfully in the State Senate before, I know firsthand how to restore balance in the legislature to create jobs and get the government off our backs. As a small businessman, I know how to help workers prosper by allowing citizens to keep more of their money.

  • Former FBI agent weaves life experiences into suspense novel

    Don’t let the title fool you. “Strangers, Lovers and the Winds of Time” by Evergreen author Dale Lovin is far from a romance novel.

    Lovin’s second published work is a gritty, compelling portrait of white supremacists and their devastated victims. Written as a suspense novel interwoven with factual accounts of high-profile incidents, the book contains tales of past and present evil in American society.

  • On the safe side

    Evergreen’s Safety Day on Saturday was a firefighter-wannabe’s dream.

     

    Every kid — no matter what the age — could ride in a fire truck, use a fire hose to spray a target, take a ride in a fire truck’s cherry picker high above the Evergreen Fire/Rescue Administration Building and meet real Evergreen firefighters.

    Two-year-old Tristan Roberts, dressed in his own red and yellow firefighter’s uniform, was excited to be at the annual event. He was wide-eyed at everything firefighter around him.

  • Evergreen residents help shape updated plan for their community
