    • You remember a time when horses and buggies outnumbered cars.
    • You remember when Evergreen was largely a tourist town, with very few people staying during the winter.
    • You lived through the Depression, when growing your own vegetables and finding ways to earn a few pennies were very important.

  • Evergreen’s 4x400 relay team caps Jeffco victory

    LAKEWOOD — Maybe for some it wouldn’t have been as enjoyable, but for Gwen Marter running a leg of Evergreen’s 4x400 relay March 15 at Jeffco Stadium was the most fun she had all day.
    Winning will do that for you.
    “It had been an average day, (but) running like that is so awesome,” Marter said after teaming with freshman Camille Morales, fellow junior Shannon Gudal and senior Maura O’Brien to run Evergreen to a meet-winning time of 4 minutes, 48.60 seconds at the 4A Jeffco League meet.

  • Evergreen catches breaks to top Bear Creek

    It would be safe to say that the bounces definitely went Evergreen’s way in this one.
    A header from Kylee Russell to teammate Ellie Petrik allowed the Evergreen forward to push ahead for the game-winning goal in the 73rd minute of a 2-1 win over Bear Creek on March 17 at Evergreen High School. It was her second goal of the game.
    “It was all thanks to my teammate Kylee Russell. She headed it perfectly over and I got on it perfectly and ended up scoring off the rebound,” Petrik said.

  • Evergreen’s patience pays off

    Patience is a virtue, and the Evergreen Cougars proved that in their season opener.
    Four walks, two hit batsmen, two sacrifices and an error, coupled with two hits, was the offense for EHS in the first two innings as it scored five runs en route to an 11-1 rout of Platte Canyon in its season opener March 17 at Evergreen High School. The game was called in the bottom of the sixth due to the 10-run mercy rule.

  • Free service handles disposal of no-longer-needed drugs

    Finding a place to properly dispose of unused medications no longer has to be a such a hassle, thanks to a free disposal drop box recently installed in the pharmacy department at the King Soopers in Bergen Park.

    The drop-box service is being funded by Evergreen Rotary as part of the statewide Colorado Medication Take Back Project, which so far has 12 locations, including nine on the Front Range and two in Summit County.

  • Tin Star owner pleads guilty to sexual-contact charge

    An Evergreen man received a deferred judgment after pleading guilty in Jefferson County District Court to the charge of unlawful sexual contact without consent, a misdemeanor.

    The charges were filed after a teenager reported alleged inappropriate sexual behavior to a counseling agency and the agency reported the charges to the police.

    The name of the teenager does not occur in the court records.

  • Keith Parker a candidate for EPRD board
