  • EHS ready to embark on new...

    By Craig Harper
    For the Courier
    Nine months later, the pain still lingers for the Evergreen girls swim team. A disqualification in the opening final of the 4A championships erased a second-place finish in the 200 medley relay and, for all intents and purposes, ended the Lady Cougars’ bid for their first state title.

  • Hanson steps into leadership...

    Take one look at Lane Hanson now, as a 106-pound junior, and from when he first started wrestling for Evergreen High School a couple of years back as a 90-pound soaking-wet freshman, and one can tell the difference.

  • Why are some plants weeds and...

    We hear a lot about noxious weeds these days, which makes me wonder why some plants are called weeds, and others are not. Just what is a weed?

  • 4A All-Jeffco softball,...

    The following is the 4A Jeffco League all-conference selections for 2013 in softball and gymnastics:

  • Raptors rip Cougars’ hearts out

    LAKEWOOD — Rob Molholm walked up to his team, choked up with a lower tone than normal in his voice. The usually vociferous Evergreen Cougars football coach was emotionally wounded by his team’s 47-14 season-ending loss to Silver Creek at Trailblazer Stadium.
    “My heart’s broken. They’re good kids,” Molholm said. “You know if you have a wife or kids, but this is my family.”

  • Semifinal loss was gut-wrenching...

    PARKER — Peter Jeans doubled over, the emotions starting to overcome him. Evergreen’s boys soccer coach, just like his team, had a hard time summing up his disappointment in the Cougars’ 1-0 4A state semifinal loss to Cheyenne Mountain. A season that had so much promise was over in an instant.

  • Repairs in progress to flood-...

    “We’ve made some significant progress at Lair O’ the Bear,” said Stanton LaBreche, Jeffco parks operations manager, while speaking to the Jeffco Open Space Advisory Committee on Nov. 7.

    With help from volunteers, the popular open-space park through which Bear Creek flows reopened on Saturday. One bridge that is considered unsafe is still closed in the park near Evergreen, LeBreche noted.

  • Boisterous pygmy nuthatches...

    November arrived with a few nice days, but it is definitely autumn with a real chill in the air. We have had so many nice autumns in recent years that I have become spoiled. I don’t like to see the cold weather come so early.
    There were a few warblers drifting through in October, but things have dwindled down now to little more than the local resident birds coming to the feeders.

  • 4A All-Jeffco boys tennis, boys...

    The following are the 4A Jeffco League all-conference selections for 2013 in boys tennis and boys golf:

  • Evergreen football hosting...

    Evergreen’s varsity football team, coming off a 41-0 win at Summit to cap an 8-2 regular season and an undefeated 3A Metro West Conference slate, will host Silver Creek in the first round of the 3A state playoffs.
    The game is scheduled for Nov. 9 at 1 p.m., at Trailblazer Stadium in Lakewood.
    The Cougars locked up a second league title in three years two weeks ago with their win over Alameda.
    Silver Creek (7-2), which placed second in the 3A Tri-Valley, won the 2012 state championship with a 32-15 win over top-seeded Rifle.
