  • Deer Creek Challenge is a grueling ride for competitors

    The Deer Creek Challenge doesn’t cut cyclists any slack. In the midst of the second annual “Toughest Century in United States,” participants climbed 12,751-feet in elevation. Even the final stretch to the finish line is uphill.

    “To put on something that is the most on anything, is unusual,” Pat Downing, the ride founder and director, said. “To be able to do this in our own backyard, and have it be the hardest in the country, is great.”

  • Stoneheart exhibit a good sign

In the case of Evergreen citizens and visitors, these astrological symbols can predict the future of your Friday night — a trip to the hottest art auction in town at Stoneheart Gallery on Main Street in Evergreen.

  • Evergreen’s Kouzmanoff traded to Rockies

    Evergreen High School graduate and Oakland Athletics third baseman Kevin Kouzmanoff was traded to the Colorado Rockies on Aug. 23 for a player to be named later or cash considerations, multiple media outlets reported.
    Kouzmanoff, who was drafted in the sixth round of the 2003 amateur draft by the Cleveland Indians, is in his sixth season in the major leagues. The 30-year-old was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento by the A's back in June.

  • Delgado to step into limelight

    Alberto Delgado wants to be a big part of reinventing the football program at Clear Creek High School. It seems as if head coach Brian Inman will give him his chance.

    Inman said the main goal of the Golddiggers’ offense will be to get the ball into Delgado’s hands and let him make things happen in open space, where he should be pretty tough to bring down.

    “He’s going to be our secret weapon, only he might not be a secret after our first game,” Inman said.

  • Position change helps Manning

    Steven Manning has a simple philosophy as to what it will take for him to improve on his junior season.

    “Just not get tired,” the Conifer senior middle linebacker said. 

    If statistics are a measuring stick, he certainly didn’t appear to be too fatigued in 2010. The 5-foot-11, 205-pounder recorded 80 tackles — 48 solo — and five sacks. He also had 16 tackles for loss. 

    Those numbers were quite impressive, but they did little to help a young Conifer team avoid the growing pains that came with a 3-7 season.
