  • Local kettle donations help during Colorado fires

    Soon after getting word of the disastrous fire in Colorado Springs, members of the Evergreen Salvation Army Extension Unit voted to send a $5,000 check to the Intermountain Headquarters to assist in providing relief services throughout Colorado.
    The donation represents about 12 percent of what was raised in the annual Red Kettle drive last November and December when area volunteers rang bells in front of King Soopers, Safeway and Walmart.

  • Erholtz’s Cougars splits pair

    American author Sam Keen, not the former Evergreen High student-athlete with the same name, once said, “deep summer is when laziness finds respectability.” Thank goodness he never played baseball for Evergreen head baseball coach Matt Erholtz because that mentality wouldn’t fly.
    Erholtz coached the Cougars to a 12-2 victory over Columbine’s Batter’s Box in Game 1 of a doubleheader on July 7. Evergreen dropped Game 2 by a 13-3 score.

  • Course good fit for Evergreen’s Kish

    Brooke Kish had already put in her daily run when she jumped into her car and drove the Freedom Run 5k course July 3. It was much easier that way, the 36-year-old Evergreen resident said.
    It also served as a good crash course for what to expect the next day in her first time running the 31st annual event. Turns out it suited her just fine as evident of her winning time of 18 minutes even, placing first in the female portion of the race. She was eighth overall. Kish tied the event record for females, set by Noreen Shea in 1999.

  • Creating art from stone

    Evergreen native and stone sculptor Vincent Emmer stands by a weathered mass of stone at Buchanan Park that is part of the Arts for the Mountain Community Sculpture Walk. 

     

    The free-form sculpture titled “Standing Tall” is Emmer’s discovery and creation — and his gift to the park. 

    Emmer says he likes to showcase the beauty of the native stone, which was donated to him by Jim O’Dowd of Fresh Aire Enterprises in Arvada.
