  • Fire district board fills vacancy with local physician

    Evergreen physician Valeri Leswing is the newest member of the Evergreen Fire Protection District board. She was selected unanimously by the board at Tuesday evening's meeting to replace former member Charles Dykeman, who recently moved from the area.

  • Gun control’s unintended consequences

    As a student living on Chicago’s south side in the early 1990s, I understood that the beginning of spring brought not only warmer days, but the sound of gunfire at night. Sometimes it would be the single shot from a handgun, and occasionally it would be the “pop-pop-pop” of a semi-automatic weapon.

  • Mourning doves make an early appearance at feeder

    On Friday, March 8, all the weathermen were forecasting another severe snow. By Saturday evening, they had been proven to be right with another foot of snow on the patio picnic table. On Friday, I was having lunch where I could watch the birds at the feeder. It was a busy sight with all of the winter moochers trying to fill up before the snow came. There was nothing new or especially interesting to be seen, but when I moved closer to the window to see if there was anything on the ground under the feeders, there was a sudden explosion of flight as two mourning doves took off.

  • 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.
