  • They are still red foxes no...

    Probably the most common animal to be seen in this area is the red fox. When we first moved to Evergreen in 1965, there were only gray foxes to be seen, but it wasn’t long before a red fox moved in, and then gray foxes disappeared. For some time now, red foxes have dominated in the area to the point where I have not seen a gray fox for a long time.

  • Reeling them in, Evergreen style

    Sitting on the ice as a gusty breeze whipped across Evergreen Lake, Evan Gerbe was trying his luck at ice fishing for the first time.

    “It trips me out,” Gerbe said as he looked at the 2-foot rod he was dangling into a hole cut in the thick ice.

    Gerbe lives in Washington state, where he fishes for salmon with a 9-foot rod in a fast-flowing river. While visiting his mother in Evergreen, Gerbe said, he decided to participate in the second annual ice fishing derby on Saturday.

  • Depth pays off as EHS repeats

    ARVADA — You want to know why the Evergreen Lady Cougars won a second straight 4A Jeffco League girls swimming championship on Feb. 8. It wasn’t the number of victories — D’Evelyn had twice as many — but rather it was the number of finalists the Lady Cougars had.

    LAKEWOOD — Lane Hanson hasn’t yet realized his goal of qualifying for the 4A state wrestling tournament. But with one win in the Feb. 8 Pre-Regional Rumble at Bear Creek High School the Evergreen junior’s psyche jumped from hope to belief heading into this week’s regional.

  • When ice melts, beavers will...

    Today has been a gloomy winter day. No sun has shone through the cloud cover. The forest appears almost black, draped in ermine robes. We have about 6 inches of snow on the ground and more promised. It has been a depressing day, though the sun is supposed to shine tomorrow. It will be good to see blue sky and bright sunshine even though it will still be cold.

  • Cougars sweep Conifer, Pomona

    Rachel Bahl keeps tinkering with Conifer’s lineup in the 200-yard medley relay, searching for the formula that will result in a 4A state-qualifying time.
    The Lady Lobos again came excruciatingly close to reaching the standard at a Jan. 30 triangular with Evergreen and Pomona at the Wulf Recreation Center. Conifer’s time of 2 minutes, 8.72 seconds — good for third place in the race — fell short of the qualifying mark of 2:05.

  • Missed chances, Demons’ size...

    The plan was simple for Evergreen: Stick to the regular game plan and get all the open shots its players could take. That worked as well, if not better, than the Cougars could’ve hoped for in the first three quarters Jan. 29 against Golden.

  • Kisiel, Cougars shut down Golden

    Samantha Kisiel knows that Haley Blodgett is the heart of the Golden girls basketball team. So it was up to the 5-foot-11 sophomore to do her best to slow Blodgett down.
