  • A view from Sylvia’s window

    As most of my friends know, I took a tumble in early August and broke my right wrist, so I have been confined to a nursing home ever since I got out of the hospital. That’s only because I can’t manage very well by myself with only one arm. However, it’s doing well and I’ll soon be out of a cast and then I can do a great deal more, I hope, even though it will still be stiff and sore.

  • Cougars’ chance for victory slips away

     AURORA — Ethan Lederer had the ball and then he didn’t. Unfortunately for Evergreen that one miscue less than a minute into the second overtime proved to be the difference.

    Howie Samuel’s rocket shot from 30 yards out ricocheted off Lederer’s hands and trickled into the back of net, sending host Smoky Hill to a 2-1 double overtime victory over Evergreen on Sept. 25 at Legacy Stadium.

  • The unintended effects of ‘reform’

    If you think you’re seeing more negative campaign ads this year, it’s not just you. 2010 is shaping up to be an all-time high — or low — for negative campaigning. It’s gotten so bad, a recent Denver Post headline read, “It’s a miracle! Some positive campaign ads!” I still haven’t seen those yet.

  • Teens invited to The Gathering at The Place

    Nine Evergreen-area churches will host an event for youths that is being called The Gathering, and it will be the first major event at the new community center in Evergreen called The Place.

    The Gathering will be from 7 to 9 p.m. Monday, Oct. 4, at The Place, 27888 Meadow Drive, across from Da Kind Soup.

    Josh Doneff, youth pastor at Bergen Park Church and a coordinator of The Gathering, is expecting at least 100 middle- and high-school-age kids to attend the ecumenical event that is part concert, part worship and part social time for teens.

  • Cougars outmatched in every which way

    LAKEWOOD — If the Evergreen Cougars, off to a 3-1 start in 2010, ever wanted to know where they stood then the 3A Metro South conference opener with Elizabeth would be a good measuring stick. The Sept. 23 game at Trailblazer Stadium, if nothing else, would let Evergreen know if its early-season success had any weight to it. 

    The numbers alone may have told the story. The Cougars had, as follows:

    — 26 total yards.

    — One first down.

    — Four turnovers, all in the second quarter.

  • Realtor, 70, thriving as globe-hopping triathlete

    Patti Townsend decided on a whim eight years ago, at age 62, that it would be fun to train and compete in a triathlon with a couple of her girlfriends.
    “We just thought it would be fun if we could do that,” Townsend said. “It was a flukey thing. We all decided we’d start training.”
    The first outing was the Danskin Women’s Triathlon in 2003.

  • Cougars fade late, settle for 2nd place

    BROOMFIELD — Bryn Haebe knows that finishing her races is a work in progress. She has to do better, and, unfortunately for her, that was proven to be the case on Sept. 24 at the Broomfield Invitational.

  • Roundup: Evergreen boys tennis team rolls

    LAKEWOOD — Evergreen dropped just four games total en route to its largest margin of victory this season, 7-0, at Alameda on Sept. 24.

    The match was rescheduled from earlier in the week due to a lockdown at Alameda High School.

    Evergreen’s No. 2 singles player Stephen Hardy, No. 3 singles player Bryan Repko, top doubles team of Peter Hassinger and Steve Jensen and No. 3 doubles team of Cameron Sadler and Garrett Smith all scored 6-0, 6-0 victories.
