  • Fixture at EHS retires in a Flash

    Lee Mayranen came by his nickname, “Flash,” pretty easily.

    Mayranen, the facility manager at Evergreen High School, was dubbed Flash by a teacher years ago because of how quickly he walks around the building and how he takes care of things, well, in a flash.

    He’s retiring from Jeffco Public Schools in June. He spent 34 years with the district, 17 of them at EHS. Flash was honored May 13 for his years of service to the school at the seniors’ end-of-the-year assembly. He was named an honorary member of the 2010 graduating class.

  • Evergreen track team shattering records on way to state

     

          Bryn Haebe didn’t know why. Maybe it really was the running gods that told Rob Wright to alter what up to this point had been a pretty successful season for Evergreen High School’s girls 4x800 relay team.

  • Longmont’s 7-run 8th knocks out Evergreen

     

    HIGHLANDS RANCH — Tom Aramovich always smiles when he’s on the mound. No matter if the bases are loaded and the odds are stacked against his team Aramovich, the senior pitcher from Evergreen High School, seems to keep smiling.

  • Looking forward to International Migratory Bird Day

    This coming Saturday, May 8, is International Migratory Bird Day, which will be celebrated locally at the Evergreen Nature Center from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

    International Migratory Bird Day is a celebration of one of the most spectacular events in the world, the annual migration of birds. The day officially takes place on the second Saturday in May every year in most of the United States. However, it is celebrated at different times in different places due to the variation in migration.

  • Making a case for full disclosure

    Sometimes the story isn’t as big a deal as the story about the story. How much different would United States history look if, the day after the Watergate break-in, President Nixon had said, “Campaigns make people do crazy things,” instead of getting involved in the cover-up that led to his resignation?

    While there is little doubt there is nothing in Scott McInnis’ tax returns or John Hickenlooper’s charitable contributions that rise to the level of Watergate, the principle is the same. The longer questions persist, the bigger the story gets.
