  • Cougars running toward postseason

    Rob Molholm wasn’t surprised that the Evergreen Cougars ran the ball so effectively. He wasn’t surprised that his team even defeated previously unbeaten Englewood. But the 45-13 score that resulted in the Cougars’ sixth win of the season, well, that was a little shocking. Almost as much as the Gatorade bath the head coach took in the post game.

  • Evergreen rules cross country meet yet again

    LITTLETON — It’s not like Evergreen needed to strike fear in the competition or build on its own confidence any more than it has already this season, but the Cougars’ cross country team did so anyway at the 4A Jeffco League championships on Oct. 15 at Clement Park.

  • Cougars headed to state

    Just how much does Evergreen head softball coach Scott Haebe believe in Breeze Phillips? He didn’t pitch her in the first game of the 4A Region 5 softball tournament on Oct. 16 at Four Diamonds Complex in Colorado Springs. But there’s a method to his madness.

  • Roundup: Jensen, Lindsay team up to place third at state tennis tourney

    PUEBLO — Steve Jensen and Brad Lindsay did something Oct. 16 that they weren’t able to do a week earlier at the 4A Region 1 tennis tournament — that’s beat Colorado Academy’s No. 4 doubles team.

    The 7-6, 7-6 win at the 4A state championship at Pueblo City Park sewed up third place for the Evergreen duo, the only members of the Cougars to medal at this year’s meet.

  • Grass fire contained to 2 acres in Indian Hills

    A grass fire in Indian Hills on Tuesday is a reminder that even though it’s mid-October, it’s still summertime dry and wildfires remain a danger.

    The 2-acre fire broke out about 4 p.m. near the 5200 block of Parmalee Gulch Road in Indian Hills, according to Indian Hills Fire Chief Don Schoenbein.

    “The cause of the fire is still under investigation,” Schoenbein said. “We believe it was human caused, but we don’t think it was intentionally set.”

  • Casting about for a meaningful message

    A foundry is an alchemical studio where metal is melted and art is created. Long ago, an opportunity presented itself to assist in pourings for sculptor Raphael Martini. My friends and I were eager to participate. The process was hot, heavy and riveting. When an Evergreen neighbor started building a sculpture studio in his backyard, I was intrigued.

  • Hey, EPRD: Let the sunshine in

  • Remember, raccoons are wild animals

    Well, I’ve done it again. Once a klutz, always a klutz. Seems like every few years, lately, I have to go tumbling around, either spraining or breaking something.

    This time it’s a broken right wrist. How these things happen so quickly amazes me, but of course, if you had time to think about it, they wouldn’t happen.
