  • Fire destroys home on Buffalo Park Road

    A home on Buffalo Park Road was destroyed by fire on Sept. 20.

    The cause of the blaze is still under investigation, said Doug Saba, spokesman for Evergreen Fire/Rescue.

     

    Evergreen firefighters saw smoke rising from an area near the home about noon and began responding to the incident before the fire station received a 911 call from a neighbor, Saba said.

    The resident, who was not identified, was not home when the fire started, according to Saba. She later returned while firefighters were working at the scene.

  • Fundamental miscues costly for Conifer in loss to Evergreen

    A broken bat and broken hearts were all that the Conifer Lady Lobos’ softball team left with after being defeated by the Evergreen Lady Cougars, 6-3, on Sept. 22 at Evegreen High School.
    “We didn’t execute,” Conifer head coach Carrie Oletski said. “We had chances where we should have dropped a bunt and we couldn’t drop a bunt. We had runners on second with two outs and we didn’t go on the hit, so we didn’t score. It was all of the things that we have been working on (in practice) that just didn’t come together.”

    The first-ever Evergreen Fall Festival was everything a small-town carnival should be: games, food, music and old-fashioned family fun.

    From the bounce houses to the face painting, the magician teaching kids tricks to the Stingers soccer games, the area around Bergen Valley Elementary School was geared for elementary-school-age children to have a ton of fun.

    Their parents, in the meantime, tagged along or gathered in small groups to talk with neighbors and friends.

  • Stevenson fields questions about proposed tax hike

    Class sizes at the elementary-school level will increase and students in middle school and high school will have fewer electives next year if two measures on the November ballot are defeated, Jeffco Public Schools Superintendent Cindy Stevenson said Sept. 20.

    In elementary schools, Stevenson told parents and staff at a community forum, parents would see larger class sizes, estimating that first-grade classes would average 27 to 29 students. The district also would eliminate the instrumental music program at the elementary-school level to save money.
