  • Evergreen shut out by Chatfield 1-0

    LITTLETON — If you can find a way to win the game, then the statistics usually aren’t as important. As was the case for the Lady Chargers as they defeated Evergreen 1-0 despite taking just two shots on goal in the win.

    Evergreen had several chances but couldn’t find the back of the net in any of their seven shots on goal.

  • Fortune favors the bald

    All kinds of hair was on the floor, shaved from the heads of brunette, blonde, black-, gray- and white-haired men and women.

    Whether the people had long or short, coarse or fine, curly or straight hair -- those differences were no longer noticeable, as everyone who stood up from the barbers’ chairs was now bald.

    While they had lost a bit of personality and a layer of cranial insulation, they stood in solidarity with the boys and girls who have been diagnosed with cancer.
