  • Prematurely born twins ready to ride

    They say that good things come to those that wait, but that’s never been the style for 12-year-old twins Max and Nate Footer.

  • O’Neil, Fowler represent at all-state

    FORT COLLINS ­— Patrick O’Neil manned the center defense, like he did during the regular season for the Evergreen Cougars. It’s just this time he was doing so with a group of All-State teammates as part of the 2015-16 Colorado High School Soccer Coaches Association All-State game July 13 at French Field.

  • Malazdrewicz working her way back

    When Lexie Malazdrewicz graduated from Evergreen High School in 2013, she left as one of the most decorated swimmers in the state of Colorado.

    • A nine-time 4A state champion, including back-to-back 200- and 500-yard freestyle titles.

    • A 4A state record-setter in the 50- and 100-yard freestyle in her final season.

    • A 2012 U.S. Olympic Trials semifinalist in the 200-meter backstroke.

  • Hang on to that Fourth of July feeling

    I hope you enjoyed the Fourth of July. I guess I’m really getting old, because although the music at Buchanan Park was good, I missed the National Repertory Orchestra playing patriotic music. I did get my John Philip Sousa fix later watching the celebrations from Washington and Boston. If you are like I am, you still get a strong feeling of patriotism and pride in our nation on special days like Memorial Day and the Fourth of July.

  • New legislation will change the face of mountain area EMS

    Emergency medical service in Colorado will look a lot different by the end of next year — specifically, people who call 911, you may not end up at the hospital or an urgent-care facility. In fact, first responders might provide care directly themselves, depending on the nature of the call. 

  • The facts about our water mammal neighbors

    (Reprinted from July 16, 2008)

    A friend volunteering at the Evergreen Nature Center last week asked me about an odd water mammal called a nutria. It seems that a volunteer on the boardwalk has pointed out a muskrat to a group of visitors, and this person came into the center and informed the volunteer on duty that “those animals out there are not muskrats; I grew up in Louisiana, and they are nutria. I have seen enough nutria that I know what they look like.”

  • 15U Cougars win Letofsky tournament

    Josh Brown allowed one run over five innings, while Dylan Patterson and Garrett Born had three hits each as Evergreen’s 15U squad beat Legacy 10-2 to win the Mert Letofksy summer tournament over the Fourth of July weekend.

    This is second time in three years that Evergreen’s 15U team has won the tournament. The Cougars scored wins over Chatfield (7-2), Columbine (7-3) and Arena Baseball (8-0) en route to the finals.

  • Triple Bypass offers challenges for ride veterans, newcomers

    When Tom Rieber rode in his first Triple Bypass two years ago, he did so because he hadn’t done it before. Then a resident of Denver — he’s since moved to Salt Lake City — Rieber was looking to try a different course after riding a number of century rides.

    It was a little more convenient in 2014, but that didn’t stop Rieber from coming back in 2016 to ride July 9 from Bergen Park to Aspen.

  • Maine senior Palken wins 15K

    Greg Palken approached the Evergreen Mountain 15K as his one big race of the summer. The 21-year-old rising senior, in Colorado visiting family, plans to try out for the University of Maine cross country team this fall.

    He thought the race would be a nice one to train with. Boy was it ever. Palken won the July 9 event in 1 hour, 8 minutes and 22 seconds.

  • Bender finding his spot in net

    Jake Bender thinks it’s kind of funny how he ended up playing lacrosse — goalie at that. The 2013 Evergreen High School graduate was actually quite the skier. 

    When he was named the 2013 Canyon Courier Male Athlete of the Year, Bender won the state title in the slalom that season, a year after winning the giant slalom. He also helped the Cougars to an alpine state championship.
