  • Five-star Kaufmann leads Cougars to rout

    LAKEWOOD — Anya Kaufmann had never scored more than four goals in a game before.

    Well, she took care of that in the first half in Evergreen’s game against Englewood on April 9. The only question was if she would she get her fifth.

    It wasn’t looking like she would, but with less than 10 minutes remaining in the second half, Kaufmann fired a shot past the Englewood goalie to tally that fifth goal and set a new personal record as she helped lead the Cougars past the Pirates in an 8-0 laugher at Lakewood Memorial Field.

  • Young Cougars drill Raptors

    The Evergreen Cougars girls lacrosse team hasn’t played a close game all season. They’ve either blown out their opponent, or been blown out by them.

    For the Cougars, it was their second win of the season as the snapped a two game losing streak that spanned almost an entire month. Their first win of 2010 came over Valor Christian on March 11.

    A group of Evergreen environmental enthusiasts has started a nonprofit organization — Evergreen’s Alliance for Sustainability + You, or “E.A.S.+Y” for short — to encourage more people to recycle and “to leave no trace.”

    “Our purpose isn’t to create recycling stations or pick up material but have people realize how easy it would be if you just pay attention to it,” said Tupper Briggs of Re/Max Alliance Evergreen, president of the board of E.A.S.+Y and a recent convert to the recycling lifestyle.

  • Business Beat: Chamber chief sees signs of life in local economy

    For Evergreen businesses, the economic downturn over the past couple of years has had a silver lining.

    “I’m really noticing that our businesses are starting to work together more to promote themselves and promote the community,” said Melanie Nuchols, president of the Evergreen Area Chamber of Commerce. “Our businesses are working together, and our nonprofits are working together and joining forces.”

    While Evergreen businesses and organizations worked together before the recession, the cooperation has increased substantially, she said.

  • Sandhill crane migration is a sight to behold

    Actually it was not bitter cold or the storm could have been much worse than it actually was. This is the week that I always call crane week for almost every year my husband Bill and I used to go to Nebraska at this time to see the sandhill crane migration.

    I had planned to go again this year and be a co-leader with Kathanne Lynch for an Evergreen Audubon trip, but apparently few Auduboners realized what a very special trip this is, and no one signed up to go. Or maybe they were just afraid of spring blizzards on the plains. My loss, I’m sorry to say.
