  • Multi-vehicle crash closes I-70 in Golden

    An accident involving at least three vehicles closed Interstate 70 on Wednesday afternoon near West Sixth Avenue.

    The State Patrol said five people were taken to the hospital.

    The accident was reported at 2:40 p.m. and initially closed two eastbound lanes of the highway, but the State Patrol said all lanes were closed at 4:10 p.m. for the crash investigation. 

    Traffic on I-70 was backed up for miles in both directions.

  • Tradition reigns again as Weiner dominates annual holiday 5K

    There are traditions that are just second nature when it comes to the Fourth of July: cookouts, parades, fireworks, and even Joey Chestnut seemingly always winning the Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog eating contest. 

    Add another one: Bob Weiner winning the Mount Evans Freedom Run 5K.

  • Former Cougar Haebe leads the way

    When Bryn Haebe looks back at her collegiate running career, both in cross country and track, it was a pretty good experience. Maybe it wasn’t as good as she would’ve hoped and she didn’t run as fast as maybe she would’ve liked, but it was still enjoyable.

  • Sad sequel to the song sparrow saga

    (Reprinted from July 2, 2008)

    It is sad to report that the song sparrow nest met with ill fate.

    On Sunday, June 22, Linda called me to say there were three young in the nest. We were all thrilled at the news, although I am still confused about when the eggs were laid. Apparently, they were laid earlier than we had thought. The female diligently fed the young that day, but on Monday, June 3, the young were gone from the nest. Only two unhatched eggs remained.

  • Column: Return lets me know what I’ve been missing

    Hi again. I’m back.

    Nine months ago, I didn’t envision a return to Evergreen Newspapers and Landmark Community Newspapers, Inc. Working in Boulder had given me a more regular work schedule, not as far of a drive from my Arvada home and a sense of being back in the operations of a daily newspaper. It also, however, reminded me of what I was missing.

  • 17U Cougars, Arena split doubleheader

    Jack Hudd’s not fooling himself. He understands that he’s not a strikeout pitcher. When the rising Evergreen senior takes the mound, his objective is simple — induce ground balls and trust his defense.

    He did both of those things in the opener of the 17U Evergreen Cougars’ doubleheader with Arena Baseball on June 22 at Evergreen High School. Hudd scattered six hits while striking out only four, but six EHS runs in the first two innings backed him up in a 9-0 win.

  • A summer of fun

    Lunch boxes and backpacks scattered the field at Buchanan Park, but the kids – ages 6 to 12 — weren’t in class. No, this was summer sports camp, a week-long fun-filled day of activity, where campers play sports in the morning and go on other activities in the afternoon.

    Some will bring toys to play with at times, like Skylander figurines, but, in general, the Evergreen Park & Recreation District camp offers a mixture of skill development coupled with summer fun.

  • Clematis vines add interest, beauty

    (Reprinted from June 17, 2009)

    Several readers have asked recently for an article on clematis vines, since one of them is on the noxious weed list and others are not. Many people seem to be having trouble telling them apart.

    There have been five species in the genus clematis found on the eastern slope until recently, one white, one yellow and one blue.

    They have now been renamed, and although the plants are still the same, they are now in four different genera and six species.
