  • Skiing: Right knee injury wiped out Van Hoesen’s season

    Kylie Van Hoesen remembers Nov. 26, 2011 as if it were yesterday.
    It was a typical training session at Winter Park when the 17-year-old Evergreen junior went for a 360-degree jump during her moguls run. But she landed kind of funny and twisted her knee, or so she thought. Unfortunately, it was a lot more than that.

  • Skiing: Busy Marshall turning her fortunes around

    To say that Kendall Marshall is quite busy would be an understatement.
    The 16-year-old Conifer junior not only skied her way into the Junior Olympics for the fourth time in freestyle moguls, but she also qualified for U.S. Skiing Championships in Stratton Mountain, Vt., again. And, oh yeah, this is her first year on the NorAm Tour.
    It’s a good thing she’s only taking four classes this year since she’s gone for much of the school year. It doesn’t hurt that she’s skiing much better, too.

  • Democrat joins Clear Creek's District 2 commission race

    A Democrat has entered the race for the District 2 county commissioner seat, joining two Republicans vying for the spot.

    George Clark, a business consultant and retired Air Force brigadier general, is joining Republicans Thomas Hayden and Christopher Trainor in the race for the seat currently held by term-limited Democrat Kevin O’Malley. 

  • Skiing: Bender’s act is a traveling one at U.S. nationals

    Jake Bender seemingly always has a busy schedule. So a trip to the U.S. nationals is no big deal.
    That’s where the 17-year-old Evergreen junior is this week, competing at nationals in alpine skiing, which includes the downhill, slalom, giant slalom and Super G. Bender left for Mammoth Lakes, Calif., on March 2 for the week and half long competition.
    “It’s always been busy for me. I skied high school and club last year as well,” said Bender, who resides in Winter Park during the winter.

  • Nita the goose has met Harry and Sally

    Nita the goose is lonely no more.

    The 7-year-old goose, who lost her mate two months ago has found two new friends, a mated pair named Harry and Sally.

     

    Harry and Sally also are white Chinese geese like Nita, and they came to Nita’s owners, Marie and George McLaughlin of Morrison, through a High Timber Times subscriber.

    “She didn’t want her name used in the paper,” Marie said. The woman had rescued the two geese but she already had chickens, so she didn’t especially want the geese.

  • Evergreen, Conifer skiers own the slopes

    Zac Strande has some regrets. The 16-year-old Evergreen High junior qualified for the Junior Olympics last year, but he didn’t do as well as he had hoped.
    But that was last year. This year, he’s got a few new tricks.
    “I feel like I’m skiing better,” Zac said.

  • Tiered fee structure eyed for Outdoor Labs

    The Jeffco school board is considering a plan to subsidize fees for the beloved sixth-grade Outdoor Lab program that would charge less for schools with more students qualifying for free or reduced-price lunches.

    Though the district has always provided funding for the program, it has not always charged schools according to income levels, Superintendent Cindy Stevenson said.

    The plan would also reduce the amount of funding the school district contributes each year to the program, with the Outdoor Lab Foundation seeking more private donations to offset costs.

  • Evergreen’s matriarch: Louise Stransky Hendryx celebrates the century mark with hundreds of friends

    Friends and family call Evergreen old-timer Louise Stransky Hendryx one of a kind, a strong woman, a lover of animals.

     

    And at 100 years old, Louise is still going strong. Hundreds of well-wishers turned out for her birthday party Sunday at the Church of the Transfiguration.

  • Park district ponders scope of energy-upgrade project

    The Evergreen Park and Recreation District will decide in the next couple of months whether to sign a contract with an energy-conservation firm for building upgrades that could cost the district nearly $850,000 in construction costs, loan interest and consulting fees, among other things.

    The EPRD board heard from McKinstry and Co. and asked questions for more than an hour at a recent board meeting.
