  • Sayler, Skold run to Jeffco League titles

    LITTLETON — Jackson Sayler didn’t want to be the guy who just sat on the lead and then outkick everybody else at the end. He wanted to run his own race.
    Well, Evergreen teammate Sam Sahli made sure that Sayler wasn’t too far in front at the 4A Jeffco League championships Oct. 12 at Clement Park. Yet, Sayler still, as he said, ran his race and won the league title for the second time in three seasons.

  • Barn dance packs 'em in

    On a mild starlit night, the historic Alderfer Barn on Buffalo Park Road was filled with more than 400 people who came to socialize, listen to music and perhaps dance a little — if they could find space. 

     

    The 100-year-old barn that has been used for storage of park district equipment in recent times was transformed into a happening place for Evergreen residents last Friday night.

    The Oct. 12 event planned by caretakers John Erlandson and Pandora Reagan was a huge success, Reagan said.

  • Rebuilding Cougars have room to grow

    LAKEWOOD —Barely bigger than an elementary school student, Evergreen freshman gymnast Callie Cohen stood tall on the beam and flew through the air on the uneven bars when the Lady Cougars faced Standley Lake on Oct. 3 in their dual meet at Bear Creek High School.
    With her 15th birthday just days after the meet, Cohen knew that she had a lot to prove — both for herself and for her team.

  • Peterson ties for 16th at 4A state

    Evergreen junior Kyle Peterson tied with four others for 16th with a 10-over-par 154 at the two-day 4A boys golf state championship at The Links at Cobble Creek in Montrose on Oct. 1-2.
    “Kyle P. was just a bit off at state. His putter or the greens or the combination of both is where he slipped a little,” Evergreen head coach Mike Kuzava said. “But he’s got one year left, and I know he’ll do what it takes to get back into the top-10 next time around. He is the heart of our team.”

  • Local artist finds inspiration in maritime lore

    Artists draw their inspiration from a variety of places. Some travel to exotic locations in search of inspiring images. Others choose to stay much closer to home, seeking inspiration in the trees and wildlife of our Colorado town. Brandy Llewellyn, an Evergreen resident and artist, straddles two worlds in her search for artistic inspiration. Brandy and her husband spend winters in Colorado and summers in Sanibel Island, Fla. Having spent many years in U.S. coastal areas as a child, Llewellyn turned her fascination with the sea into a full-fledged love of coastal and maritime art.

  • Keeping the furry faith

    The faithful and their pets gathered outside Chow Down on Sunday for the third annual Blessing of the Beasties, an event that is becoming a community tradition.

    About a dozen dogs and one cat, along with their families, were given individual blessings by Father Patrick Dorn, pastor of Evergreen’s Church of the Apostles. He explained to the group the history of the animal blessings, which are done near Oct. 4, the feast day of St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals.
