  • Senior Schillingburg talk of...

    Taylor Schillingburg, by his own admission, is a compulsive talker. He’s not a bragger or anything like that, but the Evergreen senior is known to talk a time or two on the golf course.

  • Haave makes her way back home

    Tanya Haave, no matter where life has taken her, still called Colorado home. The 1980 Evergreen graduate still owned a home in Lafayette in spite of spending the past four years as head women’s basketball coach at the University of San Francisco.

  • Douglas fir got its name from...

    The Douglas fir, pseudotsuga menziesii, is one of our loveliest trees. It is probably the largest tree growing in our forests today. It has a fascinating history that is closely woven with the man for whom it was named, David Douglas.

  • EHS Poms to host third annual...

    In an effort to raise money for nationals, the Evergreen High School Poms are hosting a golf tournament at 7:30 a.m. Monday, Aug. 9, at Hiwan Country Club.

    The team is looking for golfers to play in the tournament. Cost is $150 per player and includes breakfast, golf cart, green fees, lunch and goody bag. Prizes will be awarded for overall male and female winners, as well as closest to the hole and longest drive winners.

  • SWARM girls rugby team battles...

    Shoulder surgery to repair a dislocated rotator cuff. A broken nose. Plenty of doubters. And, yet, Lindsay Caprio wouldn’t have it any other way. The 16-year-old Chatfield junior is a rugby player, no doubt about it.

    If you ask Lexie Malazdrewicz what she attributes her success to she’s likely to tell you hard work and a lot of practice. A lot being an understatement. But even that doesn’t quantify the success she achieved at the USA Swimming Sectionals in Mount Hood, Ore., recently.

  • Babies abound during the...

    Summer is in full swing with August weather starting in July.

    As the weathermen have been saying, the monsoon winds are bringing warm and wet air up from the Gulf Coast, which is bringing us rain when it bumps into our cool mountains. This usually occurs in August, but this year two near tropical storms brought some similar weather in July, so we have had unusually hot and humid weather, very unlike the hot dry weather we are used to.

  • Cordilleran flycatchers have...

    Although spring migration has long been over, we had a bit of excitement in the yard this week.

    The house wrens have long been nesting in a swallow box on the supporting post of the front porch. In fact, they are feeding young. Although it is supposed to be a swallow box, the swallows have never had a chance to use it because the wrens arrive earlier and have already taken it over. They usually have eggs in the box by the time the violet-green swallows arrive. That was the case this year.
