  • Fire board makes administrative position part-time

    The fire district board voted March 10 to downgrade a vacant, part-time/permanent, administrative assistant position to a part-time, maximum six-month position at an annual pay rate of $25,000.

    The move echoes the board’s decision last year to downgrade the human resources position from full-time to part-time, conditional only for six months, meaning the 30-hour job could be either extended or terminated at the end of the period.

    The action came in a regular meeting of the Evergreen Fire Protection District board on March 10.

  • DA Storey wants to extend term limits for his office

    For Jeffco District Attorney Scott Storey, eight is definitely not enough.

    Term limits mean that Storey must leave office when his second four-year term ends in 2012, but he’s determined to stick around. And so, he will soon propose to the county commissioners that the limits be extended to let him seek another term.

    “As it applies to the DA, and as it applies to those offices that are not necessarily policy-makers but have a specialty attached to them — like the sheriff, for example — I felt like eight years is not enough,” Storey said.

  • Optimism's the word

    Though everyone knows that soccer is played on grass, on a chilly, early spring night in Evergreen, the Lady Lions of Littleton put the Evergreen Cougars’ soccer team on ice.

    After scoring a pair of goals just days earlier against St. Mary’s Academy, the Cougars were held scoreless against the Class 5A Continental League Lions, who managed just one goal of their own to nab the 1-0 victory.

  • Cougars have success against Eagles’ ace but still fall short

    ARVADA — The Evergreen Cougars did some unusual things March 14 against Faith Christian ace Pierce Johnson.

    Travis Coe ripped a single off the right-handed hurler to start the game and the Cougars would load the bases with no outs. Connor Hoagland came up with a RBI single later in the first inning as the Cougars took a 3-0 lead.

  • Cougars smash Warriors

    The Evergreen girls tennis team had a successful 2008 campaign, sending 5 girls - all seniors - to state.

  • Evergreen’s 150th celebrated in photo journey

    You’ll be hearing a lot about birthdays this year in the Evergreen area. On July 4, 1859, the Bergen family finished building their cabin in today’s Bergen Park, among the first settlers to put down roots in the area. In celebration of the 150th anniversary of this “founding” of Evergreen, John Steinle, administrator at the Hiwan Homestead Museum, has teamed with the Center for the Arts Evergreen.

    On Wednesday, March 25, Steinle will present a photo journey through Evergreen’s past via historic photos from the museum’s collection.

  • Blue Spruce closing its doors

    After three years, it’s “gut-wrenching” for Carol Miller to say goodbye to the business that became an extension of herself, Blue Spruce Market.

    “It just feels like a part of me is going away,” Miller said. “I don’t want to tell you that this has been easy. But it boiled down to we didn’t get the foot traffic. I don’t know what else I could have done to get people’s attention. The economy hasn’t helped.”

  • Teacher starts support group for parents of disabled kids

    More than a year ago, when teacher Lisa Arnold first moved to Colorado from Ohio, she felt she was alone.

    Before moving, she regularly attended a support group with other parents who had children with Down syndrome. Arnold and her daughter, Grace, had been part of the group since Grace was a baby almost nine years ago.

    But when the art teacher moved to Evergreen so she could teach art at Carlson and King-Murphy elementary schools, she found nothing to meet that need. So she decided to create a group of her own.
