  • Sound decisions on memorial, recall

    It’s been a pretty good couple of weeks for decisions by and about Evergreen’s primary governmental entities. The ill-advised attempt to recall the board of directors of the Evergreen Fire Protection District was snuffed out by a landslide vote, and the Evergreen Park and Recreation District board kept the faith with the American Legion and other supporters of the Buchanan Park veterans memorial by approving a statue to complete the memorial.

  • Saving our wetlands: A tale of the Easter Duck

    By Bob Snyder
    The grandkids were asleep on Easter eve. Maggie (our Lab) and I plotted foolproof egg hunting. It’s no fun to hide easy ones, but we had to improve last year’s results of only 27 of 48.

  • Feeding wildlife is harmful, illegal

    Colorado Parks and Wildlife officials are reminding the public about the negative consequences of feeding wildlife. The agency cautions that, in addition to being harmful for the health of wild animals, it is illegal to feed deer, bighorn sheep, mountain goats, pronghorn, bears and elk in Colorado.
    Wildlife belongs to the public, and officials encourage everyone to be responsible and avoid feeding, harassing or approaching any wild animal. Violators could receive fines from communities where feeding violates local ordinances, or from wildlife officers enforcing state laws.

Their freshman class principal retired at year-end. Their sophomore class principal, despite prior successes and high expectations, was not a good fit and lasted just one year. Their junior class principal was a retired administrator who stayed one year in an interim capacity.
