  • Defending state champs pull away from EHS late

    Air Academy showed why it’s the defending 4A state girls soccer champion, but only after overcoming a second-half scare from Evergreen on March 7 in Colorado Springs.
    Brooke Braden led Air Academy, which is ranked No. 3 in the season-opening Denver Post media poll, with two goals and an assist in a 4-1 victory over the visiting Lady Cougars. It was the season-opener for both teams. Caren Nelson and Katie Rainsberger also scored for the Lady Kadets (1-0).

  • Evergreen’s depth comes in handy

    LAKEWOOD — It’s a mindset that Camille Morales isn’t normally accustomed to. Sprint running is not the Evergreen sophomore’s thing like distance running is, but you wouldn’t have been able to tell such. She ran the anchor leg of Evergreen’s sprint medley relay March 8 like she belonged.

  • On a mission for a vision

    It takes great skill for a teacher to get students excited about a typically mundane topic.

    Evergreen Middle School’s principal has managed to get the entire school — students, faculty, staff and parents — excited about writing the school’s mission and vision statements.

    While most would consider writing such statements a tedious task, principal Kristopher Schuh began by getting students during their lunch break to write phrases describing the school and what they wanted the school to become.

  • Emergency agencies pay tribute to local paramedic

    Clear Creek paramedic Scott Amdur was given a send-off by 10 Colorado emergency-response agencies on Friday, as emergency vehicles lined the route from Congregation Beth Evergreen to Evergreen Memorial Park.

    Amdur, 51, an Evergreen resident who also had served as a member of the Alpine Rescue Team, lost his battle with brain cancer March 5.

    Amdur’s emergency medical expertise and devoted service impacted many lives in the mountain community and beyond, earning him many accolades from grateful patients, professionals and statewide organizations.

  • BUSINESS BEAT: CCT changes location, adds permanent stage

    Colorado Children’s Theatre has moved, setting up its theatrical shop in Evergreen North next to Yarn West.

    Mom-and-daughter theater arts teaching team Karen Tobey and Kerri Monnerat are thrilled with their move into the space at 3731 Evergreen Parkway, leaving their location on Meadow Drive.

  • Reagan reflects on rewards of involvement with Habitat for Humanity

    Evergreen resident Pandora Reagan has spent the past five years supporting Blue Spruce Habitat for Humanity with her marketing and fund-raising skills.

     

    Although she is leaving the Evergreen organization this week, Reagan will continue working with Habitat for Humanity in Denver, where she will help coordinate the Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter Work Project event in October. 

    “I’m lucky to get to work my passion,” she said.

  • DEED seeking GOCO grants for trails planning

    A walk along Highway 74 leading to downtown Evergreen is a venture fraught with potential hazards, as vehicles zoom past wary pedestrians.

    Evergreen High students face similar challenges if they decide to hoof it from the school to the Evergreen Library.

    The Downtown Evergreen Economic District is hoping to make the area more accessible to pedestrians with connecting trails. But first, a plan needs to be created. To begin the process, DEED has applied for a Great Outdoors Colorado planning grant, which the Jefferson County Board of Commissioners has endorsed.

  • Recall candidate Kesten served with New York fire department

    As a candidate in the recall election of four Evergreen Fire Protection District board members, Evergreen resident Jodi Kesten brings more than six years experience as a volunteer firefighter and EMT with a New York fire department.

     

    Along with her firefighter training, Kesten is certified for rescue operations, including the use of jaws-of-life, having received emergency medical education at a New York hospital.
