Jackson took the last of those kicks, having his attempt — the third straight by Evergreen — deflected by Battle Mountain goalkeeper Christian Espinoza.
    The result was sixth-seeded Battle Mountain, behind penalty-kick goals from Erick Broines, Roberto Diaz and Gunnar Wilson, posting a 2-1 4A state quarterfinal victory over the host Cougars at Evergreen High School on Nov. 1.

  • Mergansers bring quiet dignity to Evergreen Lake

  • Teen charged with reckless driving in vehicle rollover

    An Evergreen teenager was charged with reckless driving after the vehicle he was driving rolled on Colorado 74 on Sunday night.

    Joseph Nowicki, 17, was driving a 2006 Jeep Wrangler on the southbound frontage road near DeDisse Park when the vehicle went off the right side of the road and out of control, the Colorado State Patrol reported.

    The vehicle spun clockwise on Colorado 74, rolled over and came to rest 200 feet from the road. A 14-year-old male passenger was in the vehicle with Nowicki.

    “The entire band put everything into that performance,” said drum major Norika Zehnder, “and that’s incredible.”

  • Victims of Lower North Fork Fire to take their case to legislature

    Victims of the Lower North Fork Fire still feel that state government has failed them and should stand accountable for starting the March blaze that destroyed 23 homes, killed three people and burned 4,100 acres south of Conifer.

    They resent that the state has required homeowners to join their lawsuits with those of insurance companies when trying to seek restitution for lost property.

    They resent that the state-appointed Lower North Fork Fire Commission has focused on abstract fire management issues rather than investigating the causes of the blaze.

  • School board censures Boggs for on-air comment

    The Jeffco school board voted unanimously to censure board member Laura Boggs after she agreed with a radio host that district Superintendent Cindy Stevenson “should be shot” for having a full-time employee for social media.

    The vote to deliver the second censure in Boggs’ three years on the board was preceded by more than an hour of public comment at the Nov. 1 meeting, with residents and district employees speaking both for and against the censure.
