  • Cougars’ pressure too much for Warriors

    Hailey Newhall had a double-double to lead the Evergreen Lady Cougars to a 65-32 rout of Montbello in both teams’ season opener on Dec. 3 at Evergreen High School.
    The Lady Cougars avenged last year’s 50-49 loss at Montbello by applying full-court pressure in the first half that resulted in a 40-16 halftime lead. Evergreen was set to open the season two nights earlier vs. George Washington, but that game was rescheduled for Dec. 6 due to weather. Results weren’t available at presstime.

  • It’s official: Conifer, Evergreen to join Boulder in District 2

    Jeffco mountain communities, including Conifer and Evergreen, are about to become part of Congressional District 2, which is represented by Congressman Jared Polis, a Democrat from Boulder. The mountain towns formerly were in District 6, which has had Republican Mike Coffman as its elected representative since 2008.

    The switch became final on Monday, Dec. 5, when the Colorado Supreme Court issued a ruling affirming the Nov. 10 decision of the Denver District Court on a redistricting map largely designed by Democrats in September.

  • Holiday Walk goes car-less

    The 20th annual Holiday Walk in Evergreen strolled into a whole new dimension at 6 p.m. last Friday when sheriff’s deputies closed Main Street for three glorious hours of pedestrian-only festivities, causing parents to breathe a sigh of relief and non-parents to linger a little longer and walk around more.

  • Bergen signal light becomes permanent four-way stop

    County transportation officials have decided to remove the red-light-green-light traffic signal at Bergen Parkway and Sugarbush Drive permanently in favor of four-way stop signs with red flashing lights overhead, saying the traffic volume no longer justifies a light.

    Some local residents are concerned about the impact on pedestrians, especially senior citizens who live in the Rocky Mountain Village complex.

  • Newsletter item urging term-limit repeal questioned

  • Cougar riding in the fast Lane

    For Andre Lane, playing basketball is something that he loves to do. It’s his passion.
    Sure the Evergreen junior is a three-sport star, playing tennis in the fall and running track in the spring, but basketball is his true calling. And he knows it.
    “This is definitely my favorite sport by far,” the modest 6-foot small forward said.
    That’s obvious by Lane’s play on the floor. As a sophomore last season, Lane displayed that passion with his play, and he certainly has his supporters.
