  • 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.

  • Evergreen CAN! in need of donations

    Evergreen CAN! — an effort to collect 5,000 cans to benefit Evergreen Christian Outreach’s food bank — needs help in the form of lots of donations.

    Annie Hunter, one of the canned-food drive organizers, hopes that area residents and businesses will get in the spirit, and can donations will pour into participating locations. She wants to get the donations by April 22 so she can build a can sculpture at her Baskin Robbins shop in downtown Evergreen. The sculpture will be on display for a week before the cans are sent to EChO.

  • Evergreen has strong showing at Eagle Valley

     GYPSUM — Both the boys and girls track teams had successful outings on Saturday at the Eagle Valley Invitational. Led by Kristina Schreiber, Rachel Harris and Bailee Jones, the Lady Cougars earned a third-place finish as a team.

    In the 100-meter dash, Schreiber finished in the top-spot with a time of 13.39, .7 seconds quicker than the nearest opponent. Brittney McLeod placed 47th at 15.85 while Kristan Stackpool finished 59th.

  • Lobos tame Tigers for third win

    CONIFER — Conifer senior Chase Phelps was nearly perfect on Saturday. Phelps took seven shots on goal, connecting on six of them while adding two assists as the Lobos defeated Summit 16-1 at Conifer High School.

    A combined eight Lobos found the back of the net in the win, while six finished with assists. Conifer jumped out to an early 6-0 lead after the first period and stretched it to 12-0 by halftime.

  • Offense lifts Conifer past Fort Morgan

    CONIFER — Jackson Hale finished with just one hit, but boy was it a big one. The sophomore crushed a double into the gap, bringing home a pair of Lobos as Conifer rolled past Fort Morgan 11-5 on Friday at Conifer High School.

    Hale finished with a team-high three RBIs.

    Sophomores Sam Nease, Cody Brown and Avery Fulford combined to tally five RBIs, along with six hits.

  • Questionable calls haunt Evergreen

    LAKEWOOD — Evergreen head coach Steve Jones isn’t one to make excuses. The veteran skipper knows a thing or two about baseball and understands when his team fails to capitalize on scoring chances. 

    On Saturday, the Cougars had several chances to manufacture runs, but couldn’t overcome a tough pitching performance by Ponderosa’s Sam Beecher in a 5-2 loss at All-Star Park.

  • Fire ban lifted in Jeffco

    The Jefferson County Sheriff's Office has lifted the temporary fire-restriction order for Jefferson County.

    Weather conditions have reduced the danger of wildfire, however the Sheriff's Office encourages residents to remain vigilant and use caution when starting and extinguishing campfires, disposing of lit cigarettes, and using open flames.

    "Warm and windy days can quickly lower the fuel moisture content of trees and grasses, making them susceptible to ignition," a release from the Sheriff's Office stated.

  • Evergreen’s Bark Park founder removes son’s plaques

    Judi Quackenboss visited the Elk Meadow Dog Off-leash Area on Thursday to perform the emotional task of removing two plaques placed there in her son’s honor before Jeffco Open Space closes the popular Evergreen dog park for good on Tuesday.
    “He was a dog lover, an animal lover really; he was just so good with them,” Quackenboss told a group of reporters. “It’s a tough day, but I feel John with me.”
