  • Time takes a toll on bell tower


    The bell tower that stands sentry over the east end of downtown Evergreen is in need of repair, and the Church of the Transfiguration is hoping to get a grant to do the restoration work.

    The tower, originally dedicated on Easter Sunday 1911, was rededicated by the church’s congregation on April 24 to mark its 100th anniversary.

  • Marshdale students get down to earth

    For students at Marshdale Elementary School, Earth Day was more than just a regular school day. Parents, teachers and PTA members transformed the day into an experiential learning celebration so students could discover ways to become environmental stewards both in and out of the classroom.

  • Suspicious fires preceded Myers Gulch Road blaze

    Two smaller fires had broken out April 21 on the property at 3951 Myers Gulch Road before the two-story wood house virtually burned to the ground on April 22.

    An arson investigation has been initiated in connection with the house fire, Jeffco sheriff's spokesman Mark Techmeyer said Monday. The Sheriff's Office is releasing no further details.

  • Footpath envisioned for missing link in trail

    A group of downtown Evergreen enthusiasts is resurrecting a plan that brings back memories of the ill-fated Dam Bridge on the Evergreen Lake trail.

    The idea is to span the gap near the dam (currently served by stairs) temporarily with a walker-friendly, step-less path that would speed access to and from downtown Evergreen and the lake.

  • Economic development council becomes DEED

    The Evergreen Economic Development Council has adopted the official name of Downtown Evergreen Economic District, or DEED, as part of its effort to become an entity empowered to get things done for the good of downtown Evergreen.

    The Economic Development Council was formed late last year by members of the Evergreen Downtown Business Association.

    DEED is headed by a nine-member board that was elected by the EDBA membership last November.

  • Challenging run of games ends with loss for Cougars

    HIGHLANDS RANCH — It’s not bad enough that the Evergreen Lady Cougars played Golden. It’s not bad enough that they played Wheat Ridge. But to play Valor Christian, too. In a row. All within a week. That’s a tall order for any team. But for an up-and-coming Evergreen squad it’s a measuring stick of where it wants to be not where it is right now.

  • Cougars show a Keen eye for ball

    ARVADA — Obviously, it can’t be proven but considering the way Sam Keen was hitting the ball on April 25 against the Arvada Reds it would be hard to think otherwise that the McDonalds meal he ate for lunch didn’t factor into his play.
    He said it may have.
    “I think so,” Keen slyly said of the No. 4 meal — two cheeseburgers and fries — that may have played a role in his 4-for-4 outing, including a bases-clearing double in the first inning of Evergreen’s dominant 19-1 win.

  • Farmers plant loss on Cougars

    LAKEWOOD — Evan Dreggors, from back of the net, worked his way around the right side then flipped his wrist and scored with relative ease. Just like that Evergreen had the early lead in its boys lacrosse showdown with sixth-ranked Wheat Ridge on April 20.
    Oh, if only the rest of the game had been so easy.

  • Roundup: Evergreen girls tennis gets lone win at No. 4 doubles against Valor Christian

    Rachel Chado and Madison Rogers, Evergreen’s No. 4 doubles team, scored a 6-1, 6-2 win over Valor Christian’s Emilie Benedict and Rachel Manning, but it would be the Lady Cougars’ lone win in a 6-1 loss to the Eagles on April 21 at Evergreen High School.
    Valor Christian scored wins in all three doubles matches and a pair of three-set victories at No. 1 and No. 2 doubles.
