  • Evergreen blanked by Pomona

    ARVADA — Whiff.

    That pretty much sums up Evergreen’s 1-0 cross-classification defeat April 10 to the Pomona Panthers. The Cougars shot and shot and shot the ball but put just four tries – all of them pretty easy – on frame at the North Area Athletic Complex.

    “We just couldn’t finish,” junior co-captain Anya Kaufmann said.

    “Sometimes you can’t hit the broad side of a barn,” coach Whitney Walker said.

  • Haebe takes fourth at Runners Roost

    DENVER — The small and inexperienced did not fare well in the 3,200-meter run at the annual Runners Roost Invitational at Mullen High School. And they were easy to spot.

    Those unfortunate runners were either not leaning forward or just not strong enough to compensate when they made the turn to the south on the track and ran smack into the wall of wind April 11.

  • Continuing to build

    The Evergreen girls lacrosse team now knows how David must have felt when he got his first glimpse of Goliath.

    In its April 11 game against the Columbine Rebels, the Cougars were prepared for a fight with their slings (crosses) and stones (balls) at the ready. But for the Cougars (1-8, 0-4 Jeffco League) there would be no victory, proverbial or otherwise, against the colossal Rebels (10-0, 6-0 Jeffco League) who scored six goals in the first five minutes of the game, then cruised to an easy 19-0 win.

  • Hearing postponed for Evergreen couple

    A judge postponed a status conference for Evergreen residents Ken Berry and Anne Wakeford Berry on Monday after it was revealed that Anne Berry did not qualify for public-defender representation because she is not indigent.

    Bridget Klauber of the state public defender’s office in Golden said Anne Berry is contesting the decision.

    District Judge M.J. Menendez ordered a hearing on Anne Berry’s application for a public defender on April 15 at 1:30 p.m. at the Jefferson County courthouse.

  • Developer implements Plan B for Cragmont Village water

    Developer Ron Lewis is applying for permits to build an approved water treatment plant and storage facility using water diverted from Cub Creek.

    The private utility company will serve up to 100 future homes in the existing Village at Cragmont subdivision.

    The Water Court last year approved the plan to divert water from Cub Creek on grounds the pipeline will not result in material injury of the vested water rights of others.

    “We take it out of the stream and put it into the hill. It creates more groundwater availability,” Lewis said.

  • Getting Fido dog tired: Kittredge business provides a day at the park for your pooch

    Is the dog in your house telling you he’s ready to go on a three-hour hike in the mountains, but you don’t have the time or an outdoorsy nature?

    Before he chews up the couch and coffee table, you could send him to Dog Care Providers of Kittredge, a small business devoted to exercising the tar out of your rambunctious canine.

    One of the two owners is an experienced dog groomer and trainer who can pamper your pet and teach him some manners, too.

  • A virtual education: Jeffco schools to offer online degree for high school students

  • It’s spring: time for ‘100 for $100’

    It’s that time of year again. The gavel drops. Art lines the walls of the Center for the Arts Evergreen, waiting to be snatched up by the highest bidder — or in the case of “100 for $100,” the luckiest bidder. 100 for $100 is the most anticipated art auction in the Evergreen area, and you don’t have to be rolling in the green to take home an amazing piece of art.

  • Capitol cry: ‘Show us the money!’

    As we enter the final stretch of this year’s session of the Colorado General Assembly (it must be concluded by May 6), we could be watching a sequel of “Jerry Maguire.” The operative phrase for the last month of the session is likely to be, “Show me the money!”
