  • Officials: EHS didn’t use ineligible player in Skyview victory

    Officials from the Colorado High School Activities Association, Evergreen High School and Jeffco Public Schools found that EHS didn’t use an ineligible player during its 10-9 varsity football victory over Skyview on Oct. 6. CHSAA received material — phone call correspondence and letters – last month from Skyview officials about the possible infraction by Evergreen High School.

    Bert Borgmann, an assistant commissioner for CHSAA, which oversees high school athletics in Colorado, said via e-mail that the issue is a matter between the schools.

  • Lobos fizzle out at the finish line

    CONIFER — For a half, the Conifer Lobos — at least on the scoreboard — showed they could hang with Skyview on Friday night at Lobo Field.

    It didn’t hurt that Conifer stopped Wolverines quarterback Michael Vigil short of the goal line as time expired in the first half.

    The second half, however, was a different story.

    Skyview took the opening drive 59 yards in just over three minutes for the first of three Deyvon Butler second-half touchdowns, and the Wolverines rolled to a 20-0 shutout of Conifer.

  • A treasure comes to town

    Pueblo-based artist Philip J. Spanier knows no bounds. As a Picasso-esque painter, surrealist, relief artist, sculptor and published author, Spanier’s work is now at Epic Estate Treasures in downtown Evergreen.

    Among this self-taught artist’s creations is his second sculpture of Liberace. The first was presented and sold to Liberace when Spanier met him in person. He also met Paul McCartney and “wowed” him with his sculpture of the Beatles.

    Where do we even start?
    For people in Northern California right now who’ve been sifting through the ashes of their lives that’s what they’ve got to be asking: Where do we start? How do we begin to rebuild? When will we ever again feel normal? And our question here in the high country of Colorado is will we ever have to ask something similar ourselves?

  • “Thoroughly Modern Millie” brings theatre alive

    Conifer’s Venue Theatre opens Friday with the favored musical “Thoroughly Modern Millie.” The 1967 film of the same name was an immediate success and eventually made it to Broadway in 2002, winning six Tony Awards, including best musical. The story, which takes place in the 1920s, was quite the learning experience for the all high school student cast. Many of the props had never been seen before, such as the typewriter and flapper-style period costuming.

  • Dikken completes stellar freshman season at state

    COLORADO SPRINGS — At the beginning of this school year, with Platte Canyon’s cross country team extremely thin in number of runners, it didn’t look as though the Huskies would send anyone to state. But, after a strong individual season, they were able to send some talent in superstar freshman, Emma Dikken.

    “It was good,” she said. “I’m glad I know how it’s going to be because it was hard, and I didn’t know how many people would be here.”

  • Conifer boys cross country ends season at state

    COLORADO SPRINGS — Conifer cross country has been strong all season long, and it all came to an end at the Norris Penrose Center on Saturday in a metaphorical fashion, as juniors Sean Sands and Will Toppin crossed the finish line as a team, just 0.1 seconds apart.

  • After state, Cougars’ XC looks forward to next year

    COLORADO SPRINGS — All throughout this season, it seemed as though the Evergreen cross country team had been building its way up to state. The Cougars started off the year a bit slow, then slowly but surely, worked its way up to regional dominance.

    After qualifying their full boys and girls teams for the state competition at regionals, the Cougars fared well at the end-all meet on Saturday at the Norris Penrose Center as the girls’ team took 14th out of 20 squads, and the boys took 19th.
