  • Evergreen couple featured on segment of 'Log Cabin Living'

    An Evergreen couple and their log home were featured in a "House Hunters — Log Cabin Living" segment that aired Saturday on HGTV.

    Justin and Ashley moved to Evergreen from New Jersey in June, and decided they wanted to buy a cabin to live in, Ashley said. She asked that the couple’s last name and some work details not be made public to respect their privacy.

  • Kempe, Dozier retain seats on IREA board

    Both foothills-area directors of the Intermountain Rural Electric Association retained their seats on the nonprofit power co-op’s board in this month’s election.

    Pine Junction resident Duke Dozier, whose district stretches from Kenosha Pass to Aspen Park and includes some parts of Castle Rock, outpolled his opponent by less than 350 votes. 

  • Pasque flowers, hummingbirds indicate spring has arrived

    Spring in here! No matter how much more snow may still fall, spring is here. My friend and neighbor, Karel Buckley, called me on Monday evening, April 6, too late to make last week’s column, to tell me she had seen her first pasque flower in bloom on Sunday, April 5, and had heard her first hummingbird on the next day, Monday, April 6. These are the two species that people ask about and look for to establish the arrival of spring.

  • Some testing needed for accountability
  • Janson, Lady Lobos serve up a win at EHS

    From time to time, there is a striking dichotomy among opponents, be it differences in physical strength or size. In the case of the No. 1 singles match between Conifer and Evergreen, it was age and skill-level making the game even more exciting to watch.

    Usually, the No. 1 singles position for a varsity tennis team goes to a senior who has played for four years, assuming greater maturity and prowess after playing that long. But Conifer freshman Hailey Janson has turned that notion on its head.

  • Lobos’ early attack stymies Cougars

    CONIFER — From the moment Stone Henderson blew past the Evergreen defense for the game’s first goal to his last, the Conifer Lobos unleashed a smooth, transition attack that has been its bread and butter in 2015. The end result was Conifer’s third straight victory over its archrival, this time 10-6, at Lobo Field on April 8.

  • Peterson’s lone goal enough for EHS

    At first glance, Evergreen’s 1-0 girls soccer win over Conifer on April 9 was a bit disappointing for the Lady Cougars. 

    The second-ranked team in 4A probably should’ve won by more at Evergreen High School considering how much pressure it put on the Lady Lobos’ net. But the end result was still the same — a win.

  • Guys and dolls at RMAE set to perform on the big stage

    The world of 1920s gangsters will come alive this weekend as middle-schoolers from Rocky Mountain Academy of Evergreen perform the iconic “Guys and Dolls.”

    The spring musical — this year in the shortened “Junior” version — has been a tradition at the school for more than a decade, though performing this show is a bit more daunting than some others, according to music teacher and co-director Gretchen Moritz.

  • 'Father Unknown' documentary profiles Evergreen resident

    A mysterious documentary about an Evergreen father and his son is gaining notoriety on the film-festival circuit.

    “Father Unknown” is a story about David Quint of Denver and his father, Urban Quint of Evergreen. It will kick off the LifeTree International Film Festival in Loveland this week after premiering at the Starz Denver Film Festival in November. The movie is slated to be shown at 7 p.m. Thursday at the Rialto Theater, 228 E. 4th St. in Loveland.

  • BUSINESS BEAT: High Country Pizza is all about the pie

    It’s a good thing the owners of the new pizzeria in Kittredge really like pizza.

    They say they eat pizza all the time, mostly at their Colorado High Country Pizza restaurant, but sometimes when co-owner Steve Abbott goes home after a long day of throwing pizza dough, slathering on sauce, sprinkling the cheese and adding the toppings, he orders out pizza.

    Now that’s pizza dedication.
