  • Ball bounces Evergreen’s way

    LITTLETON — It’s not like Evergreen didn’t have it chances earlier. It did. But it took a free kick and subsequent Kylee Russell goal to finally put an end to Littleton’s winnning streak against it.
    Russell’s goal in the 62nd minute proved to be the game’s only score as the Lady Cougars toppled host Littleton 1-0 in its season opener at Littleton Public Schools Stadium on March 10. Evergreen snapped the Lady Lions’ three-game winning streak in the series.

  • Board votes 2-1 for final resolution to approve church expansion

    The county commissioners on Tuesday ignored an attempt to disqualify two of the three board members from voting and approved, 2-1, a final resolution to allow Activation Ministries to expand its church on South Lookout Mountain Road.

    Paradise Hills and Cody Park Neighborhood homeowners' associations filed a motion with the Jeffco attorney's office Monday asking to disqualify two commissioners, John Odom and Don Rosier.

    The two had voted in favor of the expansion at a meeting Feb. 28. Commissioner Faye Griffin was the only no vote.

  • Artist dreams of rebuilding lost cabin

  • A sign of community pride

    After 13½ years exposed to the elements, the familiar Evergreen welcome sign at the S curve south of El Rancho on Highway 74 has been returned to the shop for beautification.

     

    "It looks all right from the road if you are going 50 mph, but when you get up close, you can see it's full of cracks and the paint has mostly worn off," said Ed Bischoff, co-owner of Zuni Sign Company of Evergreen. Bischoff is restoring the sign for free as a donation to the community.

  • Artist dreams of rebuilding lost cabin

    On Nov. 7 an explosive house fire destroyed artist John Scott's mountaintop cabin in minutes and severely burned his face and hands.

    The resilient 92-year-old has recovered from the physical injuries but is still emotionally devastated by the loss of the cabin, which he built himself and lived in on and off for 50 years.

    When he talks about it now, his eyes fill with tears as he remembers the retreat and how much he misses it.
