  • Cougars wake up to win before...

    Jake Murphy was at the ball field by 6:30 a.m. on July 23 for an 8 o’clock game. The Evergreen left-hander said that the early start time makes him feel refreshed and awake. It helps him to pitch a lot better, he said.

    No kidding.

  • A lifetime ago, Danny Alkayam...

    There are the scrapbook full of photos, the newspaper clippings and a tournament-winning trophy for his play in the 1975 U.S. Cup sitting in his office. All are reminders for Danny Alkayam from what seems like a lifetime ago.

  • Parents should keep eye on heat

    Chatfield’s summer baseball team played its home game versus Wheat Ridge on July 16 at 10 a.m. Columbine and Evergreen started shortly before 11 a.m. two days later. And the Chargers were hoping to move up a scheduled 3 p.m. start with Arvada West on July 18.

  • Timely hitting, Daly’s...

     

    LITTLETON — Down to their last out, it took the Evergreen Cougars three pitches to turn a sure defeat into an improbable victory July 18 at Columbine High School.

  • Double-crested cormorants common...

    One of the most common birds at Evergreen Lake and the most asked about is the double-crested cormorant. For many years, cormorants were largely seacoast birds, found along the rocky cliffs on both the Atlantic and Pacific coasts.

    There were only four records of cormorants in Colorado prior to 1912, and these were considered to be “rare winter visitors” in western Colorado.

    In 1931, the first breeding record was reported by Bailey and Neidrach, with a total of eight pairs nesting at Barr Lake. By 1939, that colony had 30 pairs, and by 1995 it had 248 pairs.

  • Everything’s coming up...

    I have so many wonderful friends. I will never be able to thank them for all they do for me. Last week, two of them spent several hours on two different days helping me weed my garden. I don’t know how I can ever thank them.

    One thing that surprised me was that most of my weeds were clover or grass, probably a gift that came to me in some of the manure I have put on my garden in the past years.

  • Cougars offense barely enough

     

    There was a collective sigh July 10 at Evergreen High School as Jack Daly struck out the final two batters in the Cougars’ 13-11 varsity baseball win over the Elizabeth Cardinals.

  • Rovere pulls away from pack for...

     

    CONIFER — When the day began Joe Rovere was staring up at Pat Blazek and an impending two-person showdown for the Colorado State Disc Golf Championships. By the end of the third round July 11 at Beaver Ranch it was just a matter of how much Rovere would win by.

  • Veterans, newbies pass Triple...

     

    Dean Cahow knew what was coming, and he had already reached the halfway point. Just a few hours earlier, Edward and Kelly Jobes, first-time riders in the Triple Bypass bike ride, were about to find out.
