    Being a firefighter in your own neighborhood has its rewards, and yet it can be emotionally draining — as it was during the Lower North Fork Fire.
    Wendy Zechman, a volunteer firefighter with Elk Creek since 2009, cut her spring-break trip short to help fight the flames.

    Evergreen junior Jackson Sayler ran a personal-best time of 4 minutes, 23.55 seconds to capture first place at the South Pasadena Tiger Invitational in Pasadena, Calif., on April 6.

  • When all winds become ill winds

    Kristen Moeller used to love the sound of the wind.

    But since she and her husband, David Cottrell, lost their home in the Lower North Fork Fire two weeks ago, the wind doesn’t sound the same.

    “It used to sound so musical,” she said. “Now it sounds harsh.”

    Moeller and Cottrell’s home off Kuehster Road and Rocky Top Trail was one of 27 houses turned to ash by the fast-moving fire that burned about 4,100 acres south of Conifer.

  • Red-hot Cougars thump Chargers

    LAKEWOOD — One look at the Evergreen boys’ lacrosse team’s 8-0 record and it’s easy to see that they are having a red-hot season. So when they defeated the Chatfield Chargers 12-5 on April 4 at Trailblazer Stadium, the only thing that was shocking was that it was the first time the Cougars had beat the Chargers.

  • EHS finds rhythm to blank Conifer

    On the back of Katherine Hardy’s racket the word rythm is written. It is her motto to keep every tennis match going.

  • Home Depot pitches in

    Never underestimate the power of the community to come to your aid.

    The Evergreen Home Depot heard about Kristen Moeller and David Cottrell’s plight and offered to donate the supplies necessary to sift through the rubble of their home that was burned in the Lower North Fork Fire.

    The $800 worth of supplies was a small token of what Home Depot could do, said store manager Steve Powers. In addition, five store employees spent last Saturday helping the couple and their friends do the work.
