  • Ducks rule at 4th annual derby

     “Drop the ducks!” shouted youngsters eagerly waiting to see more than 5,000 yellow duckies cascade over Evergreen Lake dam on Saturday afternoon.

     

    Minutes before the 1 p.m. launch that signaled one of the most important moments of Evergreen’s fourth annual Dam Ducky Derby, the tall ladder on an Evergreen Fire-Rescue truck began extending high into the air and rotating over the dam.

  • Column: Look here, fall sports season is upon us

    Have you looked around a bit lately? No? Than take a peek. Go by the nearest high school or golf course. Chances are you’ll see a golfer, a football player or a runner cross your path. It is August after all.
    You know what that means? With school on the horizon — hard to believe, I know — high school athletics are here again, too.
    It seems as if the summer just flew by. In a lot of ways, it did. I blinked and seemingly missed it. And though it’s still a wee bit warm out there, for me at least, there’s no better time of the year.

  • Szuch family shines in Evergreen Town Race 5k

    By Tim Donohoo
    For the Courier
    Aug. 4 was a great day in the lives of the Szuch family of Evergreen.
    Caroline Szuch, 40, was the master’s female overall winner in the 5k portion of  the Evergreen Town Race which supports the Alpine Rescue Team.  She crossed the finish line near Evergreen Lake in 19 minutes, 26 seconds.  
    Nearly one minute earlier, 11-year-old Colin Szuch dominated the U-12 male division with a time of 18:19. Alayna Szuch, 9, took the U-12 female division in 19:49.

  • Stingers extend helping hand to 285 Corridor

    It’s been four years since Zac Crawford came on board with the Stingers Soccer Club, and it’s always been a goal of his to grow the program into the surrounding communities outside of Evergreen. He was just waiting for the right person to come along.
    That’s where Mark Friederich comes in.
    Wanting to build soccer up the 285 Corridor, the Conifer High School assistant boys and girls soccer coach answered Crawford’s call to bring a youth program to the community in what Friederich hopes will become a feeder program for the Lobos.

  • Cencich leaves mark with bench press

    Thomas Cencich said he backed off a little bit. After all, the 52-year-old Littleton resident only had a deadlift of 429 pounds. He also took it easy with his squat of 446 pounds. Normally that’s where he would start, but he wanted to make the judges happy.
    “I’m going really easy, really light to get something on the board,” the 1978 Evergreen High School graduate said.
    Well, he was at Disney World after all. There were other things to do.

  • In NYC, politics takes turn for the bizarre

    During the 1983 session of the Colorado General Assembly, state Rep. Arie Taylor of Denver introduced legislation to prohibit a person from holding more than one elected office at the same time. She was unhappy that Bob Crider was simultaneously serving on both the Denver City Council and the Denver Board of Education. The bill easily passed its first committee vote and appeared headed for passage in the House of Representatives when a freshman legislator from northwest Colorado, Dave Wattenberg, got up to speak.

  • Townsend’s solitaires are strange members of thrush family

    I always associate the Townsend’s solitaire, Myadestes townsendi, with working in the garden. For many years, a pair of these little gray birds nested just across the road on my neighbor’s property. The male chose the utility line, which ran along the road, as one of his territorial perches.

  • Pioneering local couple at center of events

    The Church of the Transfiguration and the Hiwan Homestead Museum on Sunday will celebrate one of Evergreen’s first families — Charles and Jo Douglas.

    The couple have historical significance to both the church and the museum: Charles Winfred Douglas contributed significantly to the music and the worship of the Episcopal Church on a local and an international level, and after he and Dr. Josepha Williams were married in 1896, they lived at Camp Neosho, now the Hiwan Homestead Museum.
