  • Barnett going out on top

    EVERGREEN — Tony Barnett is enjoying what might be the most successful school year ever for Evergreen High School’s athletic programs.

    Across the board, the Cougars are sending Barnett out the right way. Evergreen’s athletic director will retire at the end of the school year from the Jeffco School District after 14 years as the Cougars’ AD.

    The ice went out of Evergreen Lake faster this year than I have ever seen before. One day it was honeycombed, with a few openings along the north and west shore, and the next day it was all open. The long spell of warm weather had weakened the ice, and a windy morning set up water movement, and the ice began to break up fast.

    ARVADA —Evergreen’s girls soccer team had high expectations after a 16-2 record and earning the No. 1 seed in last year’s Class 4A state tournament.

    However, a pair of 1-0 shutout losses to Air Academy and Standley Lake last week matched the loss total for the Cougars’ entire season last year.

  • Improvements planned at Genesee...

    Genesee Park, the home of Denver's bison herd, an outdoor education center and several trails, is set to undergo about $750,000 worth of improvements this spring, pending approval of Jefferson County officials.

    A hearing before the Jeffco Planning Commission is set for 6:15 p.m. March 30 after being postponed a week because of the March 23 snowstorm.

  • Blinking not recommended

    The spring sports season is in full swing.

    However, if you blink you may very well miss it. I encourage high school sports fans to check out the spring sports over the next two months before it’s all over in a hurry.

    (Reprinted from March 23, 2009)

    While I was visiting Bosque del Apache, an exceptionally fine photograph of a northern goshawk was printed in the Community Eye feature of the Canyon Courier. It was taken by Richard Gristak on Bear Mountain. I was pleased to see this beautiful bird’s photo for two reasons: one, because I have not seen a goshawk in the area for some time, and secondly, because I had been wondering what hawk was making the birds at my feeder so antsy.

    EVERGREEN — Like the majority of the prep baseball teams across Colorado, Evergreen headed to a warmer climate for spring break.

    The Cougars took their 2-1 record to Arizona. Evergreen coach Steve Jones is able to get plenty of quality time on the baseball field in 80-degree weather instead worrying about snow accumulations.
