Today's Sports

  • A summer of fun

    Lunch boxes and backpacks scattered the field at Buchanan Park, but the kids – ages 6 to 12 — weren’t in class. No, this was summer sports camp, a week-long fun-filled day of activity, where campers play sports in the morning and go on other activities in the afternoon.

    Some will bring toys to play with at times, like Skylander figurines, but, in general, the Evergreen Park & Recreation District camp offers a mixture of skill development coupled with summer fun.

  • Clematis vines add interest,...

    (Reprinted from June 17, 2009)

    Several readers have asked recently for an article on clematis vines, since one of them is on the noxious weed list and others are not. Many people seem to be having trouble telling them apart.

    There have been five species in the genus clematis found on the eastern slope until recently, one white, one yellow and one blue.

    They have now been renamed, and although the plants are still the same, they are now in four different genera and six species.

  • Increase in prize money draws...

    The Evergreen Rodeo turned 50 this year, and it was indeed a golden anniversary.

    With a boost from community sponsors and the Evergreen Rodeo Association’s board of directors, the rodeo upped the ante considerably for participating cowboys and cowgirls, and it paid off by attracting some of the sport’s top performers, particularly in bareback riding.

    By Craig Harper, for the Courier

    EVERGREEN — It hurt Casey Colletti both literally and emotionally to miss last year’s Evergreen Rodeo.

    (Reprinted from June 29, 2009)

    About five years ago I was reading about the thousands of migrating birds killed every year by flying into windows. I had been concerned about the many birds that hit my big picture windows every year and decided I should do something about it. The article I read also told about a college student who was doing research on the problem and mentioned that a black-plastic anti-deer fabric had the best results in his tests.

  • Local fawn makes national news

    Evergreen has a new celebrity. Unfortunately, though, she has not been seen since making her debut, which was covered by Buzzfeed and news outlets across the country.

    The little four-legged star made local news after she wandered into a Kittredge family's yard on June 15.

    (Reprinted from June 20, 2012)

    Today, June 20, is the summer solstice, the day that people of many races and cultures around the world celebrate as midsummer night’s eve, the longest day of the year and thereby the shortest night of the year.

  • By the numbers: Looking back at...

    Between the postponements and cancelations caused by rough weather this past prep spring season, there were still some great accomplishments by student-athletes from Conifer and Platte Canyon.

  • Born to be wild — but riding to...

    Memorial Day is cloudy and cool, with a bit of wind out of the north. People on the boardwalk along Main Street in Evergreen watch as a motorcycle tools by every few minutes. Sometimes the bike is accompanied by others; sometimes it’s alone; sometimes it’s playing music through a speaker; sometimes it’s moving to the tune of its own melodious engine.

    This scene is a staple of summer weekends. And with summer fast approaching, more motorcyclists will frequent Jefferson County’s canyon roads to enjoy the mountain scenery.

  • Participation grows as...

    Volunteers breathed life into the Buffalo Park Community Garden on Sunday, planting miniature pumpkins and other crops in some of the beds earmarked for educational use.

    “Now it has its own heart, it breathes, it’s alive thanks to the wonderful people of Evergreen,” Shawn Hamam, coordinator for construction at the garden, called out to the volunteers.

    While neighbor Pat Brewer painted the toolshed a color called "riesling grape," several families from Wilmot Elementary School gathered to plant seeds.
