  • School board votes to censure Boggs

    Jeffco school board member Laura Boggs was censured by the board Dec. 16, the first time such an action has been taken in district history.
    The censure, on a unanimous vote, came after board members characterized Boggs’ behavior as erratic, disrespectful and inconsistent. District Superintendent Cindy Stevenson accused Boggs of “attacking the school district that she was elected to protect” during a conversation between the two.

  • Indian Hills boundary won't change

    Indian Hills students will continue to go to Conifer for middle school and high school, the Jeffco school board decided last Thursday, basing its decision primarily on the cost of bus transportation.

  • School board won’t change Indian Hills boundary

    The debate over whether to send Indian Hills students to Conifer or Evergreen schools is over after the Jeffco school board voted 4-1 on Thursday not to change the existing boundary.
    This means students from Indian Hills will go to Conifer for middle school and high school, and they will be provided bus transportation. Students will still be able to attend Evergreen for middle school and high school, but they will need to provide their own transportation.

  • Sisters to bring ‘Light’ to Ice House Cafe

    Sometimes the best music comes about with no planning, no forethought, no sheet music …just the passion of the musicians and a moment in time when a partnership is forged that produces magic. Such is the case with the collaboration between two sisters, Maree McRae and Linda Hickman. Both longtime, award-winning musicians in their own right, the women came together in Colorado to produce an acoustic Christmas album of piano, flute and guitar. The sisters will debut their album, “Lights,” at the Ice House Cafe in Evergreen on Friday, Dec. 17, at 7 p.m.

  • Evergreen’s late rally falls short

    Bryn Haebe did her part, hitting three big 3-pointers in the fourth quarter. Jordan Florschuetz and Hailey Newhall did theirs as well, scoring in double figures yet again.

  • Fortik, Mayer pace Evergreen swimmers

    LAKEWOOD — Evergreen High School’s head girls swimming coach Jeanne Godaire is expecting, both literally and metaphorically, so when the Lady Cougars met the Golden Demons last Friday at the Green Mountain Recreation Center, the pressure was on.
