  • Cougar boys plagued by ball-handling woes

    EVERGREEN — In its second game of the season, the Evergreen boys basketball team couldn’t get the job done on Friday night after a sluggish start on offense against visiting Silver Creek as it fell, 58-45.

    Maybe it was the former sports editor in me coming out, but as I sat in the comfort of my home Saturday afternoon, I kept an eye on Twitter to see what was happening in the 5A state football semifinals between Columbine and Eaglecrest. The winner will be heading to Sports Authority Field at Mile High next weekend to play for a state title.

  • Highway overpasses successful at curbing wildlife/vehicle collisions

    The sun was warm as we gathered on Vail Pass last July. Paige Singer, a biologist for Rocky Mountain Wild, and Lisi Lohre, Citizen Science intern for the Denver Zoo, handed out hardhats and bright orange vests to the three volunteers before we piled into an SUV. We drove to a spot between Copper Mountain and Vail Pass, and parked on the shoulder along westbound Interstate 70, near where a number of motion-triggered cameras had been placed in the spring.

  • Cougar girls poised for another stellar season

    It may be hard to improve on its 4A state championship from last year — the first in school history — but that won’t stop the Evergreen girls’ basketball team from likely dominating its competition on the hardwood this season.

    It certainly doesn’t hurt that they only lost one senior following the 2016 season.
