  • Cougars go down fighting

    LAKEWOOD — The raw emotion that Rob Molholm showed at midfield was as real as real can be. The Evergreen Cougars football coach truly does hold a special place in his heart for his team. So when the Cougars’ season came to an abrupt halt on Nov. 12 at Trailblazer Stadium following a 35-27 3A state football playoff tournament-opening loss to Palisade it was a bitter pill to swallow.

  • Mission incredible

    After looking for the missing hiker in the deep woods for some 32 hours, the searchers had to admit that chances of finding the 74-year-old father and retired insurance executive alive appeared to be approaching zero.

     

    About 60 people were on the ground looking. It was 5:30 p.m. and about to get dark in an hour, meaning the search was getting desperate. Not a single reliable trace of the 5-foot-7, 195-pound outdoorsman had been identified.

  • Red-brick path honors those who serve

    Members of American Legion Post 2001 of Evergreen celebrated Veterans Day on Saturday, Nov. 12, by dedicating the walkway of brick pavers engraved with the names of those who have served the country's armed forces.

    About 75 people turned out to witness completion of the final phase of a building process that began when legion members decided to build the Veterans and Service Members Commemorative Walk in 2007 in Buchanan Park.

  • Commissioners approve short-term rentals on split vote

     

    Despite evidence of strong grassroots opposition from neighbors and homeowner associations, two of three Jeffco commissioners voted to allow short-term rentals, institute a permit process and impose a comprehensive list of restrictions as a way of buffering the impact on neighborhoods.

  • Evergreen, Conifer land in Dem-leaning district

    Under the congressional redistricting map approved by a Denver district judge, Evergreen and Conifer would land in District 2, represented by Congressman Jared Polis, a liberal Democrat from Boulder.

    The mountain communities currently are part of District 6, which elected Republican Mike Coffman as its representative to Congress in 2008 and again in 2010.

    The proposed map, which would be in effect for the 2012 elections, was viewed as something of a blow to Republican aspirations.

  • Replacement chief not a high priority for fire department

     

    Evergreen Fire/Rescue is not in the market for a new fire chief, although the former chief, Garry DeJong, has been gone since September and a managers' committee recommended a new fire chief be hired.

    At a work session Nov. 8 the consensus of the board of directors was that the existing structure, with no fire chief, was working well, and they weren't interested in launching a search for a new chief until further notice. They did not say whether or not they would ever hire a new chief.

  • Evergreen denied 4A boys soccer state championship

    COMMERCE CITY -- Skyler Erickson punched home the game's lone goal in the 63rd minute and fifth-seeded Mullen avenged a season-opening loss with a 1-0 victory over Evergreen on Nov. 9 in the 4A boys soccer state championship game at Dick's Sporting Goods Park.


    Zach Sunderhuse assisted on Erickson's goal for Mullen (13-5-2).
    Second-seeded Evergreen (17-3) had its 10-game winning streak snapped. The Cougars were looking to win the school's second state championship and first since 1989.

  • Biglen resigns from Elk Creek board

    Tim Biglen, the embattled president of the Elk Creek Fire Protection District board, has resigned rather than face a recall election.
    Biglen sent a one-sentence e-mail to the other four board members on Tuesday night, saying simply that he resigned from the board, according to Mike Rogers, the board’s vice president.
    Biglen had until Tuesday to resign. If he had not resigned, a date for a recall election would have been set. His resignation saves the fire district several thousand dollars in election costs.
    Biglen could not be reached for comment.
