  • Evergreen graduate Peterson...

    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...

    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.

    Cowboys and cowgirls alike ventured to the 49th annual Evergreen Rodeo on

  • Meadows come alive with...

    June is such an amazing month. Everything is making record growth and suddenly seems so full.

    The valleys that were bare all winter are now full of green willow leaves. Aspen are in full leaf; suddenly everything appears over-stuffed. It is a pleasure to see the spring green, which makes everything come alive.

  • Open Space committee looks at...

    The Jefferson County Open Space Advisory Committee explored the potential of two properties offered by private landowners during a field trip last Thursday afternoon.

    Traveling to a field near Boulder and to Douglas Mountain near Gilpin County, OSAC members and Jeffco Open Space staff walked the properties and learned about the owners’ interest in selling them.

  • Forest Service considering ban...

    U.S. Forest Service officials are considering closing all public land to recreational shooting in a zone called the “wildland-urban interface.”

    The 400,000-acre wildfire zone — mostly along Colorado's Front Range and Interstate 70 — is an area where homes and other manmade improvements are close to natural terrain and flammable vegetation, according to information on a Colorado State University website.

  • Summer's warmth brings...

    June is such a beautiful month. It is so great to see the outdoors green again. The black-and-white beauty of winter is stark and often exceptional, but the fresh green of June is full of promise of a few months of warm weather.

    I am still at Elk Run Assisted Living, trying to get my back and right leg strong enough to go back home, at least for a little while.
    Looking out my window this morning, it was a delight to see so many spring flowers blooming. The ponderosa pine forest behind this building is where the greatest number of wildflowers grow.
