  • Get ready for winter birds now that first snowfall has arrived

    The first snow has fallen. Unfortunately, it came three weeks early this year. However, the fall color is still brilliant in some places, and we still have nice weather next week, according to the weatherman.
    I feel that it is early, since the first wet, soggy snow usually arrives on Halloween as if it were a mean trick, leaving all the new kids freezing in their thin costumes. You can always tell the newcomers from anyone who has lived here a few years because they learn to buy Halloween costumes large enough to go over their winter parkas.

  • Peterson plays his game, places 7th at state

    Keeping score wasn’t Kyle Peterson’s intent. Instead, the Evergreen sophomore golfer used his practice round on Oct. 2 at Windsor’s Pelican Lakes Golf Course — home for this year’s 4A state boys golf championship — to spray shots around the course, hitting different shots and into different places.
    That strategy worked pretty well.

  • Evergreen players denied state bid

    DENVER — The last time Evergreen’s boys tennis team ran into Alexander Dawson — last month during a regular-season match at Evergreen Sports Center — it was hardly competitive. Dawson rolled to seven straight-set victories.
    This time when they met again at the 4A Region 1 tournament Oct. 5-6 at Colorado Academy there was a whole lot more on the line, and the matches, for the most part, resembled that.

  • D’Evelyn rallies, surprises Evergreen

    The Evergreen Lady Cougars got off to a hot start, but they couldn’t hold off Ellie Brandon and the rest of the D’Evelyn volleyball squad, falling in five games on Oct. 5 at EHS.
    D’Evelyn won 22-25, 14-25, 25-12, 25-21, 15-9.
    In a back-and-forth first game, the Lady Cougars (10-4 overall, 5-1 4A Jeffco) edged out the visiting Lady Jaguars. And Evergreen seemed to be hitting its stride in Game 2 behind the strong setting of senior Allison Aafedt. But its momentum ended there and the rest of the match was all D’Evelyn.

  • Demolition begins on Lake Park rehab project

    After a couple of years in the concept stage, demolition work has begun on the Evergreen Lake Park renovation project.

    Groundbreaking was expected to start the by the end of the week of Oct. 10, and a completion date is anticipated before Christmas.

    The entire project is now expected to cost about $230,000, not including the resurfacing of the asphalt parking lot, which has been broken out as a separate project that will possibly include the city of Denver as a partner.

  • Gerou to represent three new counties in revamped HD 25

    Being the elected state representative from House District 25 has meant understanding the people of Jefferson County since the '70s. Now it means courting the people of Park, Gilpin and Clear Creek counties as well — a total population of about 78,000 constituents.

    On Sept. 19 the Colorado Reapportionment Commission approved a legislative-district map that puts four counties in HD 25 instead of one. If the map is allowed to stand by the state Supreme Court, Evergreen will be part of a multi-county district for the first time in years.

  • Neighbors weigh in on rezoning bid for Albertsons building

     

    Neighbors at a community meeting Oct. 6 questioned the prospect of allowing outdoor storage at the empty Albertsons supermarket building but were sympathetic to the need to lift the 20,000-square-foot size restriction on future tenants.

    There are no users under contract, and the building has been vacant for three years since the supermarket closed.

    About 25 people attended the gathering Oct. 6 in the lobby of the empty Stagecoach Boulevard store. There were about 10 too many people for the number of folding chairs set up in the drafty space.

  • 4A state golf: Peterson, Cougars place seventh

    WINDSOR -- Evergreen sophomore Kyle Peterson shot a 1-over 145 two-day score to tie for seventh at the 4A boys state golf championship on Oct. 3-4 at Pelican Lakes Golf Club.
    Peterson carded a 2-under 70 over the first 18 holes, including five birdies, before settling for a 75 on Day 2.
    He finished 17 strokes back of Valor Christian's Wyndham Clark, who won his second state title with back-to-back rounds of 64 on the Par-72, 6,566-yard course.
