  • Robins have made their way back to the area

    (Reprinted from April 28, 2010)

    As I was coming home from a late trip to the library and grocery store, it was almost dark as I came up the hill when an American robin flew across the road right in front of me. I braked and he landed in a ponderosa pine in the yard, the same tree that a pair of robins has nested in for the past several years.

    This made me feel it was my old friend. Of course, this is impossible to prove unless the bird had been banded, but it is more than likely, for robins are known to nest in the same area year after year.

  • Near no-hitter for Kapande

    DENVER — Image if the slider was working for Evergreen senior pitcher Dane Kapande on April 23 at D’Evelyn Junior/Senior High School.

    Kapande could have very well thrown a no-hitter in the Class 4A Jeffco League game against D’Evelyn. Instead, the Cougars’ ace had to settle for a 5-0 victory throwing 6 and 2/3 innings, giving up two hits while striking out 14 batters.

  • Rising from the abyss

    By Chelsy Woods Klein — For the Courier

    EVERGREEN — Much like waxing and waning moons, Evergreen’s boys swim team has a long and somewhat muddled past, only allowing onlookers to see how brightly it shines when it’s in a particular phase.

  • Public divided on rec center expansion

    The results of a public opinion survey commissioned by the Evergreen park district do not bode well for the prospects of either a new gym or more pool lanes at Buchanan Rec Center in the near future. The district board is expected to vote on whether to put the question on the ballot at its next regular board meeting April 26.

  • King-Murphy parents outraged when board doesn't renew teacher's contract

    King-Murphy Elementary parents threatened to pull their children from the school after the Clear Creek school board voted 4-1 Tuesday night not to renew the contract of beloved sixth-grade teacher Beth Cavanaugh for the 2016-17 school year.

    About 40 parents and teachers spent more than 60 minutes pleading with the board to keep Cavanaugh at the school. More than 20 people spoke, including three students, all emphasizing that Cavanaugh is a great teacher who sparks excitement for learning.

  • Weather precipitates creativity among young writers

    It was ironic that several students at the Young Writers Conference last Thursday titled their books “The Crazy Weather.”

    The plots weren’t about a huge snowstorm like the one that hit the mountain area over the weekend. Instead, they were about taco and rotten-banana rain, rainbow sand and fog, and marshmallow and book precipitation. Second-graders at Bergen Meadow told a facilitator that crazy weather had been a writing prompt in school.
