  • Participants in holiday 5K run the gamut

    Participants in the annual Freedom Run on July 4th included an assortment of people from all walks of life — from 2 months old to 86, from serious runners to families with strollers. And some brought their dogs, from golden retrievers to Chihuahuas.

    About 930 racers enjoyed the cool morning air as they traversed the Hiwan subdivision to run or walk the 5K from Evergreen Middle School to Nick’s Pro Fitness. It was the 35th annual run to benefit Mount Evans Home Health Care & Hospice.

  • Sad sequel to the song sparrow saga

    (Reprinted from July 2, 2008)

    It is sad to report that the song sparrow nest met with ill fate.

    On Sunday, June 22, Linda called me to say there were three young in the nest. We were all thrilled at the news, although I am still confused about when the eggs were laid. Apparently, they were laid earlier than we had thought. The female diligently fed the young that day, but on Monday, June 3, the young were gone from the nest. Only two unhatched eggs remained.

  • Local sculptor John Scott remembered for his passions

    Local artist John Scott, a renowned sculptor and landscape painter, is known as much for his resilience as his talent, a man whose passion for his art and the outdoors remained intense over a half-century of creativity.  

    Scott, whose studio still stands atop a peak in Kittredge, and who was just a month shy of his 97th birthday, died Tuesday, June 28, of a sudden heart attack.

  • Column: Return lets me know what I’ve been missing

    Hi again. I’m back.

    Nine months ago, I didn’t envision a return to Evergreen Newspapers and Landmark Community Newspapers, Inc. Working in Boulder had given me a more regular work schedule, not as far of a drive from my Arvada home and a sense of being back in the operations of a daily newspaper. It also, however, reminded me of what I was missing.

  • 17U Cougars, Arena split doubleheader

    Jack Hudd’s not fooling himself. He understands that he’s not a strikeout pitcher. When the rising Evergreen senior takes the mound, his objective is simple — induce ground balls and trust his defense.

    He did both of those things in the opener of the 17U Evergreen Cougars’ doubleheader with Arena Baseball on June 22 at Evergreen High School. Hudd scattered six hits while striking out only four, but six EHS runs in the first two innings backed him up in a 9-0 win.

  • A summer of fun

    Lunch boxes and backpacks scattered the field at Buchanan Park, but the kids – ages 6 to 12 — weren’t in class. No, this was summer sports camp, a week-long fun-filled day of activity, where campers play sports in the morning and go on other activities in the afternoon.

    Some will bring toys to play with at times, like Skylander figurines, but, in general, the Evergreen Park & Recreation District camp offers a mixture of skill development coupled with summer fun.

  • Fitness a hot topic for Evergreen Fire

    Editor’s note: The Canyon Courier is following three people hoping to complete the Evergreen Fire/Rescue academy to get their firefighting certification. This is the second in a series of stories about what it takes to become a firefighter.

    Dragsters can go from a standstill to 100 mph in less than a second.

    Firefighters do virtually the same, going from a standstill to adrenalin-pumping, physically demanding, high-stress work to fight a fire.
