  • Evergreen graduate Peterson soaks in St. Andrews

    Kyle Peterson didn’t play the Old Course at St. Andrews — host of a record 28 Open Championships, also known as the British Open here in the United States — but it was still St. Andrews.
    “It was honestly a learning experience. Completely different golf,” Peterson said. “I’m really glad that I got exposed to it at such a young age and got to learn a different way to play golf.”

  • Funds still needed for EHS press box

    What do high school football and an English classroom have in common? If it’s Evergreen High School, as it currently stands, the classroom is where assistant coaches on the opposing team communicate with the coaches on the field. It’s not an ideal situation, but maybe that’s about to change.

  • Three people shot after concert at Red Rocks

  • GOP primary in assessor race offers clear choice

    The GOP primary in the Jeffco assessor race offers a clear choice: the county's deputy assessor, who has 18 years of experience in the office; and a tax consultant who has represented property owners in valuation disputes.

  • Cowboys, cowgirls circle the wagons at the Evergreen Rodeo

    Cowboys and cowgirls alike ventured to the 49th annual Evergreen Rodeo on
    Father’s Day weekend. Competitors — both local and from as far away as Honolulu, Hawaii — tried their hand to tame the bulls, ride the horses and wrestle down the steers for two days at the El Pinal Rodeo Arena, now the Esco Construction Arena.

    EFR said no homes were threatened, and that firefighters were still at the scene conducting mop-up operations.

    A resident of Yankee Creek Road said at least four fire trucks and six pickups had headed in the direction of the fire.

  • Trails plan puts Evergreen on right path

    As long as I’ve lived in Evergreen, and that’s 28 years now, there has been an upside and a downside to being unincorporated. The upside is simple to see: We don’t have an additional layer of government, nor do we bear the costs of one. There are so many generous, committed, civic-minded citizens and nonprofits here that we don’t usually need a mayor or a council.

  • Board majority must reveal vision

    Maybe they just got tired of being called the new conservative majority.

    How else can you explain school board members Ken Witt, John Newkirk and Julie Williams voting to pay, including performance incentives, new superintendent Daniel McMinimee almost 40 percent more than his predecessor and to give him a five-year contract despite the fact that he’s never been a superintendent before? The decision doesn’t meet any definition of conservative I’ve ever heard.
