  • Raptor rapture

    Turbo the Barbary falcon can fly at a speed of 100 mph, trainer Joyce Remp said while showing the raptor to young Keet Holdridge and his father, Jeff, at Evergreen Fine Art on Saturday.

     

    Turbo was among a host of falcons that garnered lots of attention during the Nature’s Educators event. From a large golden eagle to a tiny screech owl, birds took the stage, giving occasional squawks and flapping their wings.

    Artists were also taking in avian views as they painted images of the regal birds on canvas and paper. 

  • EMS eighth-grader's freedom essay wins Sertoma Club contest

    Hannah Gurrieri, an eighth-grader at Evergreen Middle School, understands a little bit about freedom.

    Hannah, 14, wrote an essay about what freedom means to her and how having freedom means protecting the freedoms of others. Her essay was selected as the school’s Freedom Week essay winner by the Platte Canyon Sertoma Club.

  • Hardy species hang around mountain area in winter

    Snowy February has fairly well lived up to its name. We have not had deep snow here, but frequent light snow and cold weather have kept the ground carpeted in white. Of course, more lies ahead for us for spring snows are usually deeper although less frequent.

     

    March snows are usually deep, wet and heavy. Even April, our second snowiest month, brings this same kind of snow with nice spring days in between. Spring can’t come too soon for me for I have cabin fever and just can’t wait to get outside.

  • EHS’ Kay focused on state from start

    DENVER — Jake Kay, if nothing else, has tunnel vision. The Evergreen senior has been focused since the 2012-13 season began on getting back to the 4A state wrestling championships. Nothing else would be satisfying.
    Guess what, that’s where he’s headed.

  • Cougars escape Golden, but just barely

    GOLDEN — Chase Kelly never knew otherwise if he was to hold the ball out for a potential last-second shot or not. All he saw was an opportunity and he took it.
    “I don’t know. I didn’t hear coach say one shot or anything,” Kelly said. “I was wide open. I felt like it was the best shot we would get on the possession. I took it and it ended up good.”

  • Slow start dooms Lady Cougars

    GOLDEN — Be it the 16 rebounds in the first half — 12 on the defensive glass — or Golden’s 14-3 run late in the second quarter there’s little question that the Lady Demons came out ready to play.
    Even though the team is on restrictions via CHSAA for superseding varsity and junior varsity playing time, as  reported by the Denver Post, Golden played early in its 47-40 home victory over Evergreen on Feb.14 like a team on a mission.
