  • No matter how you spell it, it’s still a bluebird

    I don’t know how to write this article about bluebirds, blue birds, Blue birds or Blue Birds found in this area. All four spellings plus a hyphenated form are found in various bird books. I, myself, prefer the single word of bluebird.

    Friends returning last week from Santa Fe told me they had seen bluebirds eating juniper just south of the state line in New Mexico. My friends thought the birds were on their way back for the summer. They well may have been.

  • Haas returns, seals EHS win at foul line

    Injuries, be it the broken back he suffered in October or the torn intestines last month, have hampered Evergreen point guard Nathan Haas. The only thing the senior could do was shoot free throws. Well, he’s pretty good at that as Conifer has found out multiple times this season.
