  • DeGette reaches out to new constituents

    When I first heard that Congresswoman Diana DeGette, D-Denver, would announce her bid to be re-elected to Congress from the 1st Congressional District at the Columbine Library, my first thought was, “I thought that library in Cherry Creek was on Milwaukee, not Columbine.”
    As it turned out, I was right — there is no Denver library on Columbine Street. DeGette, who has represented Denver in Congress since 1997, chose to announce her re-election plans from the newest part of her district, the part in South Jeffco around Columbine and Ken Caryl.

    Rumors are flying over what business might build at the location of the Bergen Park McDonald’s, Evergreen’s first free-standing fast-food restaurant, which closed Dec. 31.

  • Malazdrewicz overcomes Ralston Valley, sets invite record

    ARVADA — Everywhere Lexie Malazdrewicz looked there was a Ralston Valley swimmer. Two to her right, two to her left at Meyers Pool on Jan. 21. It was, as the Mustangs’ Maddie Myers proclaimed prior to the 500-yard freestyle finals, an Evergreen Oreo.
    “We talked about that. (Maddie) was joking around that it was going to be a lot of Ralston Valley people and one Evergreen in the middle. Then I looked at her and it actually was,” Malazdrewicz said.

  • Cougars exorcise Demons

    Erin Dobey scored 16 points, going 6-of-11 from the field, and Hailey Newhall added 14 points and 10 rebounds to lead the Evergreen Lady Cougars past visiting Golden 46-38 on Jan. 20 at Evergreen High School.
    Evergreen (9-6, 4-2 4A Jeffco League) led most of the game, holding the Lady Demons to just three points in the first quarter by keeping them off guard with their full-court press. Their dominance was short-lived, however, and the game wasn’t decided until the fourth quarter when the Lady Cougars were able to pull away.
