  • Cougars impressive in 'huge win'

    The Evergreen Cougars are out to prove that they are going to be a force in the Jeffco 4A League this year.

    They took one step closer to proving that on Jan. 8 as they drubbed the visiting Conifer Lobos 70-51 to move to 2-0 in league play and 7-3 overall.

  • Lobos' defense clamps down on Lady Cougars

    Conifer girls basketball head coach Jon Marston knows that you need to play good defense to win at any level and he has preached that to his team.

    The Lobos certainly showed they were listening on Jan. 8 as they improved to 11-0 on the season by beating bitter rival Evergreen 54-43 on the Cougars’ home court.

    “That’s our main focus, defense, especially man-to-man,” Marston said. “I told the girls before the game, it comes down to defense. Who plays the best defense is whose going to win the game, and that’s any game.”

  • Ice Melt Contest banner found

    The banner for the Ice Melt Barrel Contest at Evergreen Lake was found behind the NAPA Auto Parts store on Highway 74 in downtown Evergreen. It had disappeared from the front of Evergreen National Bank around Dec. 12.

    “I saw the article in the Canyon Courier saying it was missing, and it made me look twice,” Davis said. “I have no idea how long it’s been there.”

  • Boundary change for Parmalee Elementary debated

    A small group of parents at Parmalee Elementary School in Indian Hills is proposing that all of the children go to Evergreen for middle and high school instead of some of them going to Conifer, an idea that is facing mixed reaction from other parents.

    The proposed boundary change would not affect students who attend Parmalee Elementary School, just the middle and high schools. The Indian Hills parents want their children to go to Evergreen Middle and High School rather than West Jefferson Middle School and Conifer High School.

  • Kidnapping suspect seeks reduction in $500,000 bond

    When contacted by phone on Monday, Jan. 11, Bernhardt declined to comment on the matter.

    “We are very early in the litigation process, and anything we choose to say will be said in court,” Bernhardt said.
