  • Finches, sparrows abound as autumn approaches

    After a hard rain during the night, the morning of Aug. 30 was damp, misty, humid, partly cloudy, partly sunny, foggy, hazy and warm, with a slight breeze that would sway the tall grasses and flowers occasionally just enough to send a raindrop rolling off.

    There was a definite feeling of autumn in the air that Sunday morning and an unusual number of birds in the yard and at the feeders. I was only getting quick flashes of them from the window, so I finally went out on the carport where I could see over a larger area and follow them from place to place.

  • 2009’s Angel has special significance

    For centuries, angels have played a significant role in religious iconography, as well as becoming an accepted symbol in pop culture. Angels have been messengers, protectors and guardians, or simply cute cherub-like characters with wings and halos. Thanks to Evergreen Fine Art Gallery, the angel holds a treasured role in gift giving throughout the world.

  • Coming home, for real

    The excitement is building at Evergreen High School as the highly anticipated homecoming week approaches.

    In addition to the usual activities, this year’s homecoming is extra special because the varsity football game will be at the school for the first time in 35 years, thanks to portable bleachers. And, even more exciting, the game is against the Conifer Lobos.

  • Tour of studios puts artists’ techniques on display

    An artist’s space can tell so much. Do they work at home, or do they share a space with another artist? That toppling wooden chair that you love in an artist’s latest oil painting? Does it sit welcomingly in the corner of her studio — bathed in sunlight that streams in from the north? These are all questions that will be answered this weekend at the eighth annual Open Door Studios Tour in Evergreen.

  • Bernstein feels right at home in ‘Carousel’

    Rick Bernstein has made a name for himself in Denver’s theater world as the founder and executive director of Miners Alley Playhouse in Golden. On Sept. 18, Bernstein brings his directing talent a little closer to home in his directorial debut with the Evergreen Chorale’s production of “Carousel.”

    “I’ll tell you, working at Center/Stage sure has saved on gas money,” laughs Bernstein. Bernstein and his wife, Paige Larson, also active in theater at Miners Alley and throughout Colorado, are Evergreen residents.

  • Tough loss for Cougars

    LAKEWOOD — Evergreen coach Rob Molholm is a Farmer at heart.

    So when Molholm stood in the shadow of the scoreboard at Trailblazer Stadium on Friday that showed his Cougars losing 14-10 to Elizabeth, he thought back to his gridiron roots. And for a guy from Wheat Ridge, a program with shelf full of state titles and a tough-guy reputation, moral victories don’t get you very far.

    “We got a lot of things to work on, but one thing we don’t have to work on is heart,” Molholm said.

  • Evergreen smashes Conifer

    In between the comedy and yelling, Zach Fuller and Nate Chart played some entertaining tennis Sept. 10.

    In a No. 1 singles match that headlined the Conifer and Evergreen Class 4A Jefferson County League dual match, Fuller and Chart - two friends who are very familiar with each other’s games - went at each other for every point.

    “I was playing for the moment because I’m good friends with Nate,” Fuller said.

    Chart captured the moment, however, as the top Evergreen player won 6-3, 6-4. Behind Charter, the Cougars rolled to a 5-2 team victory.

  • Tigers top timid Cougars

    LAKEWOOD — On one side of the net Oct. 10 stood the Lakewood Tigers, a Class 5A team that put itself on the map last season by winning the Jefferson County League and advancing to the state tournament.

    In the stands, near the disclaimer “Welcome to the Jungle,” was a sizeable Tigers’ student section that bounced, cheered and taunted.

    Watching all of this in wide-eyed wonder were the Evergreen Cougars.
