  • Meteorologist, professor say use of fossil fuels is creating a warmer atmosphere

    A percentage of people don’t believe that excess carbon dioxide produced by oil and gas usage is affecting the Earth’s atmosphere, Nelson said during his presentation on Monday night at The Place in Evergreen.

    Critics of climate change say it’s a myth, he remarked. But Nelson said there is overwhelming evidence to the contrary.

  • Underdog Lobos don’t wilt under pressure

    CONIFER — Conifer boys lacrosse head coach Tyler Knauer has been waiting a long time to taking a win from Evergreen. He doesn’t have to wait any longer.
    A Conifer team that had lost seven straight and never beaten Evergreen came out with nothing to lose April 12 at Lobo Field. Behind the scoring of Connor Rankin and Blake Bannon, who combined for seven goals, Conifer posted a 12-7 win over rival Evergreen. It was as sweet a victory as a team could have, considering the Lobos are just 2-8 this season.
