    She was lying in a shallow ditch, very still, when our dogs spotted her. They sniffed her curiously, and before we could react, one dog gave her a quick lick on the nose before we shooed them away.

    I very slowly approached the tiny elk calf, at first concerned about her condition. Was she hurt? Should I call Parks and Wildlife for help? I agonized that she may even be dead. She was so utterly still. Her body lay in a shallow ditch, her head resting quietly on the path.

    The Lobos, No. 5 in last week’s CHSAANow.com Class 4A boys lacrosse poll, showed off their offensive skill March 24 at Trailblazer Stadium scoring a season-high 16 goals in the non-league victory over 5A’s Ralston Valley. The 16-5 win ended a 3-game losing streak for Conifer, a 4A state quarterfinalist last season.

  • Bears springing into action...

    By Christie Greene

    Last fall, as the days grew shorter and the sun moved lower in the sky, the bears listened to their instincts and began eating, really eating, up to 20,000 calories a day. As their foods sources dwindled and the temperatures began to sink, they ambled into the woods to make a den.

    In the meantime, we adjusted our clocks, made soup and readied the snowblowers. While we settled in front of the fire with a book, the thick-coated, fat-laden bruins curled up inside cozy dens and began living off their acquired fat stores.
