  • Cordilleran flycatchers have little luck with nesting spots

    (Reprinted from July 28, 2010)

    Although spring migration has long been over, we had a bit of excitement in the yard this week.

    The house wrens have long been nesting in a swallow box on the supporting post of the front porch. In fact, they are feeding young. Although it is supposed to be a swallow box, the swallows have never had a chance to use it because the wrens arrive earlier and have already taken it over. They usually have eggs in the box by the time the violet-green swallows arrive. That was the case this year.

    It pays to know the competition in any endeavor. When Brian Folts noticed that Dan McIntosh and Gabriel Zumbado were not entered in the fifth annual Evergreen Sprint Triathlon, he liked his chances.

    A Golden resident and familiar face at the event, Folts was the runner-up to McIntosh last year and Zumbado in 2014. He also finished fourth when McIntosh won and Zumbaldo took third in 2013.

    Brock Burke’s professional pitching career is slow-going, but that’s on purpose.

    The 2014 Evergreen High School graduate has yet to pitch a full season in the minor leagues, but that’s because for the third straight year he’s in a short-season league. This year, Burke’s pitching for the Rays’ Class A short-season Hudson Valley Renegades in the New York-Penn League.

  • Morrow fitting in with the Pack

    Lindsay Morrow walked out onto the pool deck and the experience took her breath away. Now the 2015 Evergreen High School graduate and two-time Canyon Courier female athlete of the year has made that walk hundreds of times before. But this time it was different. This time it was in Omaha, Neb., home of the U.S. Olympic swimming trials.

  • Children need to be aware of poisonous plants

    (Reprinted from July 22, 2009)

    If you have not taken a drive to see the wildflowers this year, now is the time to do it, for they will soon fade. Shrine Pass is always a delightful trip for wildflowers, and many can be seen without a great deal of walking. Arapaho Pass (west of Boulder) is also excellent but takes a bit longer and involves a bit more hiking.

  • Summerfest draws array of local, national artists

    Acrylics and dyes. Metal and wood. Glass and clay. Gold, silver and bronze. Dazzling neons and muted tones. The gentle tones of wind chimes. The soft texture of cloth. Bright and dazzling photographs of nature.

    The Center for the Art’s 37th annual Summerfest once again turned Buchanan Park into an eclectic display of artistry, from clothing and jewelry to paintings and woodcarvings. Plus, with food, drinks, music and other entertainment, the entire field was alive with an assortment of activities for visitors to enjoy.

    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.

    • 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.
