  • Short-handed Cougars no match

    LAKEWOOD — After a disappointing 2010 season in which Chatfield went just 5-10, the Lady Chargers are looking like a force to be reckoned with in 2011.

  • Aafedt jumps in winner’s lane

    LAKEWOOD — You’ll have to forgive Allison Aafedt. It’s the Evergreen junior’s first year of running track.

    Oh, how good the sweet fresh air feels. I am sitting in the yard at the Life Care Center, and I can’t begin to describe what a pleasure it is to get outside.
    Yesterday was Friday, March 18, and a small band of mule deer wandered through the yard. The band included one male, two females and one young.
    He was no longer spotted but was very small. I wondered if it would make it through the winter.

  • A forgotten war drags on in Iraq

    Eight years later, it was an altered scene at Evergreen’s downtown traffic light, where 15 people gathered to remember the ongoing war in Iraq. Although we were standing on the same bridge, we felt distant from those driving by. Now most of them are on their cell phones. The mood as indicated by friendly waves, while mostly apathetic, continues to tally overwhelmingly in favor of ending this long and fruitless war. There were the usual one or two head shakes.
