  • Generosity flows in wake of flooding

    Sometimes good can come out of tragedy.

    When Cactus Jack’s Saloon bore the brunt of the flood caused by the overflowing Bear Creek on Friday, owner Gary Mitchell Jr. knew he wouldn’t be reopening soon.

    So rather than waste the 1,500 pounds of food in the saloon, he donated it to Evergreen Christian Outreach.

  • Evergreen resident seeks school board seat

    Evergreen resident John Newkirk, a graduate of Jeffco Public Schools, is running for the school board in District 2.

    Newkirk is pitted against Jeff Lamontagne for the seat, which represents the spacious, western part of Jefferson County. Incumbent Laura Boggs is not running for re-election.

    “I’m a product of Jeffco schools,” Newkirk said. “I want every student to have access to the great education that I received in Jeffco.”

    The election is Nov. 5.

  • Cleanup moving along at Cactus Jack’s

    There’s a whirlwind of activity at Cactus Jack’s Saloon as the owners and employees work to rebuild the landmark business at the corner of Highway 74/73 in downtown Evergreen.

    The remnants of the deck that was demolished by the flooding caused by a week of incessant rains will be lifted out by a crane this week.

    The old floor has been removed, and an electrician and plumber were expected early this week to make sure everything is working before inspections can take place.

  • Photographer's wanderlust led him to Colorado's beauty

    Joe Danni ran 10 times for 92 yards and Tanner Cassin added 56 yards on 14 carries.

  • Lady Cougars searching for right mix in time for league play

    By Craig Harper
    For the Courier
    HIGHLANDS RANCH — One of first-year Evergreen volleyball coach Andrea Wood’s main objectives in the first two weeks of matches is to find the most effective rotations in time for the start of 4A Jeffco League play.
    She’d be well-advised to recall who was on the court in the third set of the Lady Cougars’ Sept. 12 test at Valor Christian. After falling behind 2-0 and looking lost and hapless in the second set, the Lady Cougars played one of their best sets of the season, winning it 25-17.

  • Host Cougars force Lobos into mistakes

    Dennis Von Kuczkowski says that his English isn’t all that. He’s a German exchange student, after all. But don’t be fooled. The Evergreen High junior speaks pretty good English, and his tennis game is quite good in its own right.
    Von Kuczkowski, who mixes a steady baseline game with attacking the net, broke serve five times en route to a 6-0, 6-2 victory over Conifer’s Sam Kassman on Sept. 16 at Hiwan Golf Club. That was one of five wins for the host Cougars in a 5-1 victory over Conifer.

  • Bergen students honor heroes at 9/11 commemoration

    It was raining last Wednesday, and rain was flowing in the form of tears from the adults who gathered with students for Bergen Meadow Elementary School’s annual Hero Day to commemorate Sept. 11, 2001.

    While the students listened with interest to the presentation about local heroes — the men and women who work in law enforcement and as firefighters and paramedics — the adults were fighting back tears during the commemoration of 9/11.

    “This is a tear jerker,” Evergreen Fire/Rescue paramedic Bob Walter said after the ceremony.
