  • Nuchols sets sights on new horizons

     

    After five years at the helm of the Evergreen Chamber of Commerce, Melanie Nuchols is stepping down to see where artistic inspiration takes her and see what it feels like to sit on the deck and read a book, among other things.

    “I just always felt my core mission was to be helping people,” Nuchols said. “I love the chamber. I love my job. I just want to have some time.”

    Nuchols has a background in fitness and used to own a workout studio.

  • Going with the grain

    Not everyone can see beauty in a stack of weather-beaten, sun-bleached wood. But in the hands of Tommy Banaszek and Jeanne Sullivan, salvaged wood turns over a new leaf and is transformed into handmade furniture.
    KnoT New WooD, located in Kittredge at 26030 Highway 74, is the brainchild of Banaszek and Sullivan, who created the business to showcase wood repurposed into elegant, rustic or highly polished custom designs.
    “People come in here and want to touch all the different woods,” said Sullivan.

  • Fleeing robbery suspects lead to lockdown at 5 Jeffco schools

    Two armed-robbery suspects remained at large Thursday following a multi-jurisdiction pursuit through Golden that led to a handful of Jeffco schools being placed on lockdown. One suspect was arrested in a Colorado Mills King Soopers, apparently as he was exiting a bathroom.
    The five schools on lockdown were Bell Middle School, Pleasantview Elementary, Golden High School, Connections Learning Center and Free Horizon Montessori. The lockdown was lifted about 2:30 p.m., said school district spokeswoman Lynn Setzer.

  • Cougars’ chance for victory slips away

    AURORA — Ethan Lederer had the ball and then he didn’t. Unfortunately for Evergreen that one miscue less than a minute into the second overtime proved to be the difference.
    Howie Samuel’s rocket shot from 30 yards out ricocheted off Lederer’s hands and trickled into the back of net, sending host Smoky Hill to a 2-1 double overtime victory over Evergreen on Sept. 25 at Legacy Stadium.

  • A view from Sylvia’s window

    As most of my friends know, I took a tumble in early August and broke my right wrist, so I have been confined to a nursing home ever since I got out of the hospital. That’s only because I can’t manage very well by myself with only one arm. However, it’s doing well and I’ll soon be out of a cast and then I can do a great deal more, I hope, even though it will still be stiff and sore.

  • The unintended effects of ‘reform’

    If you think you’re seeing more negative campaign ads this year, it’s not just you. 2010 is shaping up to be an all-time high — or low — for negative campaigning. It’s gotten so bad, a recent Denver Post headline read, “It’s a miracle! Some positive campaign ads!” I still haven’t seen those yet.

  • Teens invited to The Gathering at The Place

    Nine Evergreen-area churches will host an event for youths that is being called The Gathering, and it will be the first major event at the new community center in Evergreen called The Place.

    The Gathering will be from 7 to 9 p.m. Monday, Oct. 4, at The Place, 27888 Meadow Drive, across from Da Kind Soup.

    Josh Doneff, youth pastor at Bergen Park Church and a coordinator of The Gathering, is expecting at least 100 middle- and high-school-age kids to attend the ecumenical event that is part concert, part worship and part social time for teens.

  • Cougars outmatched in every which way

    LAKEWOOD — If the Evergreen Cougars, off to a 3-1 start in 2010, ever wanted to know where they stood then the 3A Metro South conference opener with Elizabeth would be a good measuring stick. The Sept. 23 game at Trailblazer Stadium, if nothing else, would let Evergreen know if its early-season success had any weight to it. 

    The numbers alone may have told the story. The Cougars had, as follows:

    — 26 total yards.

    — One first down.

    — Four turnovers, all in the second quarter.
