  • Ensuring the availability of the Evergreen Lake trail

    One of the best things to do in Evergreen is to walk around Evergreen Lake. It’s a relatively easy hike with spectacular views, lots of activity as other people take advantage of a plethora of recreational activities that are available on and around the water, and access to a wide variety of wildlife, including many different bird species. Unfortunately, part of the trail was closed for more than a year and a half because of instability before it finally reopened in November.

  • Dividends or investment?
  • Reward offered in Maggie Long murder investigation

        The Park County Sheriff’s Office — in conjunction with the Colorado Bureau of Investigation, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) — is offering a $15,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and prosecution of anyone involved in the murder of Platte Canyon High School student Maggie Long.

  • Cougar, Lobo teams fare well in midseason relays

    LAKEWOOD — The Evergreen girls swimming team is doing its best to show that even in a season of transition, the Cougars remain ultra-competitive.

    Head coach Jeanne Godaire is calling it quits after 12 years leading the program, sharing duties for 2017-18 with co-head coach Liz Hudd.

    It would seem like they have their work cut out to keep Evergreen among the state’s elite in 4A before a drop to 3A next season, but the Cougars are off to a great start, finishing first at their most recent meet.

  • Get ’er done
  • Hibernate, migrate or circulate?

    Wildlife has evolved astonishing tactics to cope with extreme weather. Like retired New Jersey snowbirds descending to West Palm Beach in the fall, hummingbirds spurn winter, turning their iridescent feathered backs on Colorado and heading south to friendlier habitat.
    Bears vanish into dens to hibernate, slowing their metabolism enough to survive the winter without eating or drinking.

  • Cougars take down Jaguars in close game

    EVERGREEN — The Evergreen boys’ basketball team knows how to start off league play right.

    Following a win against Standley Lake and a 61-55 victory over visiting D’Evelyn on Saturday afternoon, the Cougars now sit at 2-0 in league play (9-2 overall) and show no signs of slowing down. The Jaguars, however, have struggled in Jeffco play with two tough losses to start out the new year (4-6).

  • All around, in every way

    At every school, there’s always that student-athlete who perfectly exemplifies the idea of the “student-athlete,” someone who excels at being both in school and in competition. For Conifer, senior Mark Studer checks all the boxes.

    For much of his high school career, Studer has been a stud the court and on the field for the Lobos, as he serves as a guard for the basketball team and as a defensive midfielder in lacrosse. In school, he’s taken more than 15 AP and honors classes during his of high school career and pushes himself when he can.

  • Confident Cougars stay unbeaten in duals

    It’s said that confidence breeds success. The Evergreen High School wrestling program is beaming with that confidence nowadays.

    That hasn’t always been the case in recent years, but with an influx of wrestlers and a trust in themselves, the Cougars are witnessing that success on the mat in 2018. That was evident in the Cougars’ fourth dual victory of the season 51-27 over visiting Denver South on Jan. 3 at Evergreen High School.

    Three years ago, EHS barely had enough wrestlers to keep the program afloat.
