  • Evergreen puts on a hitting clinic

    The Evergreen Cougars put on a hitting clinic May 4 against rival Conifer. And every time the Lobos answered, Evergreen answered right back.
    The home-standing Cougars scored four runs or more in four consecutive innings, capping the game with a Joe Danni game-ending RBI single in the fifth inning for a 17-7 win. And it’s wasn’t just one individual — it was a collective effort for the Cougars, as all nine guys contributed in some form or another.

  • EHS knocks on the door, but can’t push it in

    DENVER — It was a recurring theme for the Evergreen Lady Cougars.

But it didn’t quite happen.

  • Bounce doesn’t go EHS’ way

    LAKEWOOD — No, Evergreen didn’t win the 4A Jeffco League girls soccer championship on May 3 at Lakewood Memorial Field. That honor was bestowed on preseason favorite Green Mountain, thanks to a Jenn Brunsdon rebounded goal in the 68th minute for a 1-0 victory.
    But while Evergreen was denied a league title, it may have gained something even more important — the confidence to play the state’s best with the 4A playoffs on the horizon.

  • Sound decisions on memorial, recall

    It’s been a pretty good couple of weeks for decisions by and about Evergreen’s primary governmental entities.

  • Hummingbird feeders need meticulous care

    Once more we have snow in May. This is a bit disturbing because we have just had some fine spring weather in April, and this seems like we are going backward. We don’t really want to see winter return, but it is not unusual. All of the ice was off Evergreen Lake by April 30.

    A teachable moment

  • Life lesson is all it’s cracked up to be

    Bergen Meadow kindergartners learned about biology and life on a farm by watching eggs hatch into tiny chicks for the past few weeks.

    The first chick pecked its way out of its egg on April 29, and the children were enthralled with the sight of new life.

    Hatching eggs is an annual event at Bergen Meadow, and older students get excited as they relive the time when the eggs hatched in their kindergarten classrooms.

    Peggy Miller, the school’s principal, even donned a chicken hat that morning to signal the event.

  • Boggs tries to block filming at school board meeting
