  • Open space, closed government

    After crafting a deal to acquire 19 acres in the Rooney Valley last December, Jeffco officials portrayed the purchase as a routine Open Space buy and kept secret the transaction’s role in settling a lawsuit by a group of developers, a Courier investigation shows.

    A lawsuit currently pending against the county charges that the machinations contributed to Jeffco’s top administrator, Jim Moore, being fired after he voiced objections to the lack of transparency.

  • Get outside and help eradicate weeds at Evergreen Lake

    I don’t know where the month of May went, but it just disappeared with the spring snow.

    Now we are well into the month of June and the annual Community Weed Day is this coming Saturday, June 11.

    This is a very special day, open to the public and one of the few things that is still free. Community Weed Day is held on Saturday from 8 to 11 a.m. in the park on the Lake House lawn. It is co-sponsored by Evergreen Audubon, the local Mount Evans chapter of the Sierra Club, the Evergreen Garden Club, and the Evergreen Park and Recreation District.

  • Could a coalition government work?

    The new government in Great Britain is wasting no time getting down to business. Shortly after taking power, the Conservative-Liberal Democrat coalition announced spending cuts totaling about $8.2 billion. According to The Economist, “this is a small first step on a long journey.”

  • A daring rescue after dark

    The Alpine Rescue Team of Evergreen is one of five Colorado search and rescue teams that won a Valor Award from a national association, for saving the life of a man with a broken leg near the top of 14,201-foot Crestone Needle, one of the most dangerous peaks in Colorado.

    The peak is 56 miles southwest of Pueblo, or about a five-hour drive from Evergreen.

    “People die on it every year. It’s very steep,” said Paul “Woody” Woodward, who was on the rescue mission July 27-28, 2009, along with eight other members of the Alpine Rescue Team.

  • A hail of a storm

    The hail that ripped into Evergreen last Friday was pea-sized and slushy, for the most part. But in some areas the precipitation was pebble-sized and icy, generating dozens of calls to insurance agents about dented cars, chipped window frames, battered decks, broken skylights and pockmarked siding.

    The damage in Evergreen was moderate, considering the amount of hail that came down. The extent of the roof damage is hard to evaluate until the adjusters get a chance to inspect the aftermath, insurance agents said.

    Health provider Kaiser Permanente of Colorado says it will open its new medical office in Evergreen in an office complex that houses U.S. Bank and Nick’s Pro Fitness at 2942 Evergreen Parkway.

  • Kind souls team up to fix immigrant’s broken body

    In his native Myanmar, So Reh had two serious strikes against him.

    The first was the current regime’s iron-fisted attempts to coerce social harmony within its troubled borders. As a practicing Christian, the married father of four was effectively disqualified from all but the lowest-paying jobs, forcing him to choose between abandoning his pacifist beliefs for military service, or letting his family go hungry.
