  • Closed dog park a victim of its success

    It never seemed like the rules were that important to a lot of people who used the Evergreen Bark Park. Dog waste was routinely left and not picked up.  Some people put the waste into plastic bags and then left the bags on the ground. When the parking lots were full, people routinely parked along the street, often right next to no parking signs. Other people didn’t use leashes when they took their dogs from their cars to the designated off-leash areas.

    For 16-year old Cora Stebner, playing volleyball is all she’s ever wanted to do. From the minute the Platte Canyon junior first played as a kid in California, she’s been hooked — playing on school teams, playing with local and state volleyball clubs, participating in summer leagues and ultimately landing spots on Platte Canyon’s varsity roster and on the 3A Frontier League all-conference team in 2015.

    At 5-feet, 5-inches tall with a crush of red hair, Stebner is a force on the court.

  • Donations requested to help EFR coordinator with cancer

    A fund-raiser has been launched to assist one of Evergreen Fire/Rescue’s longest-running staffers after he was recently diagnosed with cancer.

    Dave Montesi, a 20-year veteran of EFR and the department’s new EMS coordinator, was recently diagnosed with metastatic melanoma, otherwise known as Stage IV skin cancer. According to a statement from the department, which is speaking on behalf of Montesi, the cancer has spread to Montesi’s lymph nodes and will require at least one surgery and intense immunotherapy that isn’t covered by insurance.

    According to Chief Human Resources Officer Amy Weber, most of the candidates that have applied for the job have asked the district not to publicly disclose their names and professional backgrounds and the district wants to respect that.
