  • House wrens working their way into the foothills

    (Reprinted from May 30, 2012)

    The little brown house wren has been part of my life for as long as I can remember. They always nested in a box in our yard on the farm where I grew up, and they were common nesting birds in most every yard in the village.

  • Cougars’ 4x800 relay fourth at state meet

    LAKEWOOD — Despite breaking the school record in the boys 4x800 relay for the second time in as many weeks, Evergreen’s top relay team wasn’t all smiles leaving the track May 19 at Jeffco Stadium.

     “We were a little bummed out,” said Evergreen junior Brandon Swenson, who ran the third leg of the relay. “This is the one we wanted.”

  • Election-year session long on wrangling

    The 17th session of the Colorado General Assembly adjourned last week after a session that was long on partisan wrangling and relatively short on meaningful public policy achievements. As could have been expected in an election-year session when Democrats controlled the House by a 34-31 margin and Republicans had an 18-17 edge in the Senate, most bills that pursued a partisan agenda did not pass.

  • Gutsy effort comes up short in state playoffs

    HIGHLANDS RANCH — To beat a great team twice is always a tall task, let alone on the road both times.

    However, Evergreen’s girls soccer team did everything in its power to pull off that mission May 14 at Valor Stadium in Highlands Ranch. The Cougars defeated Valor 3-2 on the Eagles’ home turf April 28 to propel Evergreen during an impressive home stretch of the regular season that included a tie against Class 4A Jeffco League champion Wheat Ridge.

  • RPI needs tweaking

    Life just isn’t fair sometimes. The same can be said about sports.

    Evergreen’s baseball team finished with a 12-6 record, a second-place finish in the Class 4A Jeffco League with a 7-2 mark. Still, somehow, the Cougars didn’t make the 32-team district field for the postseason.

    Six teams with sub-.500 records did make the 4A postseason field. Say what? How could this happen?

  • Gauvain a lean machine in the pool

    ARVADA — At 6-foot-2 and maybe 140 pounds, Joshua Gauvain looks like he’d be more at home shooting a basketball than diving into a swimming pool.
