  • Macy integrates technology into lesson plan

    Evergreen English teacher Travis Macy likes putting a little spice in his teaching.

    He wants his teaching to have his flavor, and he feels his job is to make education not just relevant, but real for students. He does that by integrating technology into his high school classroom.

    On Saturday, he was one of two Jeffco high school teachers honored with a My Teacher My Hero award. Macy is the first EHS teacher to receive the award, which has been given by the Jefferson Foundation for 10 years.

  • Milan’s art infused with spirit of the Southwest

    Spend any time in the Southwest, and you will become enamored with the bold colors that surround and envelop you. A trip to New Mexico overflows with bursts of turquoise, the rich hues of a sun-streaked sky, or the audacious adornments of Native American festival garb. Perhaps it was these rainbows of color that inspired Steve and Jenni Sonnen to surround themselves with Southwestern art when they opened the doors of Mirada Fine Art in Indian Hills. Perhaps it was the work of contemporary painter Pablo Milan.

  • Middle school grins and bears a bear

    A young black bear decided to hang out at Evergreen Middle School on Sept. 11, prompting the school to lock its doors and keep students inside all day. Stingers Soccer also canceled after-school practices on the EMS fields.

  • Parmalee to walk down memory lane during 50th birthday party

    Fifty years ago, Indian Hills wasn’t much different than it is today. Sure, there are more businesses, houses and traffic now, but the sense of community is still there.

    Fifty years ago, Parmalee Elementary School opened its doors, and since then the school hasn’t change much either. Two of Parmalee’s alums took a school tour Sept. 13 and reminisced about their time there in anticipation of the school’s 50th birthday party.

  • Don’t forget: There’s a war going on

    Here in America, we like the news. Our national press generously treats us to salacious details of Prince Harry’s escapade in Las Vegas, or the seemingly endless traffic travails of Lindsay Lohan. We’re at no loss for commentary on Britney Spears’ X-Factor judging style, or endless analysis of LeBron James’ fourth-quarter playing style.

  • Bugling elk a staple of area’s unpredictable September

    September is such an unpredictable month. It is a lovely end of summer with warm sunny days and cool nights. It is gray cold days with scattered showers. It often brings the first snow, which usually melts the next day, as well as our first frost. It wants to be summer, but winter is pushing at the door so hard that it will soon be in, whether we like it or not.

  • Golub, Cougars overpower rival Conifer for Jeffco League win

    CONIFER — Skylar Budd’s game was fairly consistent. But as his match with Evergreen’s Matt Golub went along the Cougars’ No. 1 singles player’s confidence grew. Golub started hitting more ground strokes into the corner. He started taking more chances. And he was getting a lot of winners because of that.
    It all added up to a 6-0, 6-1 win for Golub in Evergreen’s eventual 6-1 team victory Sept. 13 at Conifer High School’s tennis courts.

  • Theil leads Evergreen trio to 4A state tournament

    LITTLETON — It would be easy for the Evergreen Cougars’ glass to be half-full considering Sam Theil, Kyle Peterson and Kyle Malazdrewicz qualified for the 4A boys state golf tournament. But there was also a half-empty feel to the team in the aftermath of the 4A Metro Regionals on Sept. 17 at Raccoon Creek Golf Course.
    Evergreen, a year after qualifying a four-man team to state in 2011, was one shot away from doing it again. But for a second straight year, the Cougars had to settle for third place at regionals behind Valor Christian and Mullen.
