  • Let’s hear it for law enforcement

    We all breathed a sigh of relief when the Westminster Police Department announced it had Jessica Ridgeway’s suspected killer in custody. But in the days following his capture, we are learning the extent to which this result was made possible by great police work.

  • First snow sheds tears in a flakey farewell to summer

    The first snow is always so beautiful that I am forced to admire it even though I’m not a winter person.

    Campaign speech not protected

  • ‘Mattress’ a farcical, not-so-sleepy tale

    We all love a fractured fairy tale — perhaps even more than the original. There is something satisfying about turning the original story filled with morals and happily-ever-afters into a spoof with hilarious missteps. Such is the case in StageDoor Theatre’s high school production of “Once Upon a Mattress.” Running through Nov. 10, this show, based loosely upon Hans Christian Andersen’s tale, is sure to win your hearts.

  • Ice House Café gets new owners

    The Ice House Cafe in downtown Evergreen has been sold and will be renamed the Muddy Buck.

    While it’s an unusual name, new owners Diane and Alan Florschuetz think it has a “mountain-y” feel. “Muddy” comes from a word for really dark coffee, and “Buck” comes from the wildlife that Diane is enamored with.

    “I researched and researched,” Diane said, “and Muddy Buck just seemed to fit.”

  • Keys on the Green closes

    Keys on the Green restaurant and golf shop at the Evergreen Golf Course has closed effective Nov. 1.

    RLR Inc., which has had the concessionaire contract to operate both businesses since 2001, terminated its contract with Denver Parks and Recreation effective Nov. 7. Denver Parks operates the golf course. RLR ended its contract six months early.

    On Tuesday, Ron Reif of RLR Inc. was cleaning out the golf shop. The restaurant was expected to continue serving food through Wednesday. There were no signs on the building indicating that the restaurant was closing.

    The Evergreen Lady Cougars landed the No. 31 seed in the 36-team 4A regionals and will play in the three-team Region 6 bracket at Thompson Valley High School on Nov. 3.

  • Cougars playing self into playoff consideration

    LAKEWOOD — It was an early-season arm injury suffered by Evergreen quarterback John Cassell that  resulted in junior Jack Curtis stepping into that role and moving Cassell outside to wide receiver. But the move certainly has paid dividends the past two weeks.
    The tandem hooked up twice Oct. 26 at Trailblazer Stadium for first-half scores of 18 and 37 yards as Evergreen posted its second straight victory and second shutout of the season 45-0 over host Alameda.

  • Sayler, Skold left hoping for more

    COLORADO SPRINGS — On the one hand finishing 14th at the 4A state cross country championships isn’t too shabby. But when you’re Jackson Sayler, Evergreen’s top male runner who won both the 4A Jeffco League and a regional title in 2012, it wasn’t exactly what you were hoping for, either.
    “I’m definitely not satisfied, but I definitely could’ve done a lot worst. It was just an average race,”  Sayler said.

  • Golden shot sends EHS to Elite 8

    LAKEWOOD — It’s a play that the Evergreen Cougars work on all the time. Ethan Jackson dribbles the ball down one sideline before crossing it over to the back post. This time, Danny Golden happened to be on the receiving end. Now all the Evergreen junior needed to do was put the ball into the back of the net.
    Easy enough, right?
