From trash pick-up to crowd and noise abatement, residents raised issues related to parks in their area during the meeting at the Kittredge Civic Center.

    “We’re not going to be able to regulate the number of people who come here. These really are public spaces,” Scott Robson, EPRD executive director, said in response to a concern about crowds at O’Fallon and other neighborhood parks.

  • Victory slips out of Evergreen’s grasp

    Cancel the MIA alert for Evergreen’s offense.

    First-year boys lacrosse coach Toby Gerard wasn’t in panic mode prior to the home April 5 non-league matchup with Air Academy. But there was genuine concern as the Cougars had scored just 14 goals in the previous four games, including a 17-0 shutout by Wheat Ridge three days earlier. Half of those goals came against Clear Creek, a second-year varsity program, in the lone win during that stretch.

  • Summer birds making their way back to the foothills

    Once more, while spring hesitated in the doorway, winter pushed her aside and came back in.

    Cold and snowy would best describe most of last week’s weather, but it could have been much worse. Since the temperature hovered around freezing, at least some of the snow fell as rain. Today, the sun is back and between the snow drifts, brown squiggly earth makes fancy patterns on the mountains.

  • Evergreen educator publishes book on defining personal boundaries

    Evergreen resident and educational consultant Lorna Idol has written a book on defining boundaries in relationships that is based on her personal experiences.

    “Do you ever feel like other people are imposing on you? That other people are effectively bossing you around? That you don’t know what to say or do to defend yourself, until after an incident is over?” Idol asks in the overview of her recently published work, “Discovering Boundaries.”
