    FORT COLLINS ­— Patrick O’Neil manned the center defense, like he did during the regular season for the Evergreen Cougars.

  • 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.

  • Bucksnort Saloon goes up for sale

    The legendary Bucksnort Saloon near Pine Grove is up for sale for the first time in nearly 20 years, and an unexpected career change is the reason why.

    According to longtime owner Galina Bye, the decision to put the saloon and its properties on the market came after she recently found success as a fine artist.

  • 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. 

  • Arts Alive! kicks off this weekend with Summerfest

    Arts Alive!, Evergreen’s annual celebration of its diverse arts community and offerings, kicks off this weekend with the Summerfest arts and crafts festival and culminates two weeks later with the venerable Evergreen Jazz Festival.

  • ‘The gentlest soul ever’

    The Andy Smith Sr. Memorial Golf Tournament is as much about a grandfather’s love as it is about raising money for the Evergreen Park and Recreation District’s special populations program.

    Mountain Foothills Rotary, which sponsors the tournament, named it in honor of Smith Sr. in 2007. Smith, who died that year, owned Evergreen Oil Co., and he was a major sponsor because he had a special place in his heart for children with special needs, especially his grandson, Andrew Tyler Smith, known as Tyler.

  • 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.
