  • Cougars headed to state softball tourney

    Evergreen softball coach Scott Haebe isn’t sure if he likes the new regional format that teams must get through to qualify for state. Namely, he’s not sure how to feel when a team clobbers a team once, but then loses to that team in the rematch and fails to qualify for state.

    Not that Haebe or the Cougars are complaining.

    Evergreen punched its ticket to the Class 4A state tournament this weekend after surviving Region 7 and a rematch with the 10th-seeded Widefield Gladiators.

  • Cougars blank Warriors, 5-0

    LAKEWOOD – Like the Blues Brothers ravaging Chicago, the Evergreen soccer team got the proverbial band back together Oct. 13 at Lakewood Memorial Field.

    And the Cougars sure seemed to be on a mission from a higher power.

    With no injuries or absences to speak of for the first time this season, the Cougars jumped on the Centaurus Warriors from the onset and rarely let up in an impressive 5-0 Class 4A Jefferson County League victory that saw senior Caleb Downey bag a hat-trick.

  • Park district ponders preliminary 2010 budget

    The total cost is budgeted at $232,100, of which $46,000 is from the district’s capital improvement fund; the rest depends on winning a joint grant from Jefferson County Open Space.

    The 2010 budget will be the main topic of discussion at a regular board meeting Oct. 27 at Wulf Recreation Center. The final version must be approved by mid-December.

    Under the 2010 budget, the district will be able to pay for capital improvements and other one-time expenses totaling $989,000 out of revenue and savings, without increasing user fees, except for field-use fees.

  • Fire district unveils draft of 2010 budget

    The 2010 budget includes $200,000 to help with the transition to a state-of-the-art narrow-band (VHF) radio system and an unspecified amount to pay for a temporary, contract project manager to oversee the work.

    The final version of the 2010 fire district budget will be unveiled at the next regular meeting of the board of directors at 6 p.m. Nov. 10 at fire district headquarters, 1802 Evergreen Parkway. The meeting will start an hour earlier than usual to allow time for questions from the public.

  • Business Beat: Furniture consignment store opens near Bergen Park

    Evergreen once again has a furniture consignment store.

    It’s New to Me opens this week in the Hiwan Barn on Evergreen Parkway. Owners Mary Boland and Kevin Bryan have 2,000 square feet filled with furniture, lighting, art accessories and rugs.

  • ‘Picnic’ gives insight into small towns

    It was once said that, “A small town is one where even a haircut changes the appearance of the whole community.”

    In the case of the Evergreen Players upcoming production of “Picnic,” it isn’t a haircut but the appearance of a stranger that forces a community to question everything it thought was true.

  • Whiff of garbage will bring bruins from miles away

    Snow and below-freezing temperatures tell us that winter is here, even though it’s still supposed to be fall. Shortening days are growing still shorter and will for three more months until the winter solstice is reached and the pendulum swings the other way and they begin to slowly grow longer. My husband, Bill, used to feel the same way, and we used to celebrate Dec. 22 as if it were the first day of spring and then celebrate again in March when it really was the first day of spring and the days began to get longer than the nights.
