  • 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.

    Visitors to Chow Down Pet Supplies in Bergen Park may wonder why the store counter seems so wide and empty. Instinctively, we turn to the right, expecting to see two lethargic, lounging cats that were a fixture in the store for more than two decades. Butch and Sundance were a constant presence at the store, presenting lazy tummies and chins for obligatory scratches.

  • Evergreen girls to play for 4A...

    DENVER – At the start of the 2016-17 season, the Evergreen Lady Cougars didn’t know how good they would be, having graduated six seniors, including the school’s all-time leading scorer in Samantha Kisiel.

    Yet, the Evergreen Lady Cougars are back in the 4A state championship game.

    Claudia Dillon had 19 points and 12 rebounds, while Keigan Drysdale added 11 points in EHS’ 45-29 win over Pueblo West in the 4A Final Four on Thursday afternoon at the Denver Coliseum.

  • Former Evergreen Crafters...

    The building that was once home to Evergreen Crafters in downtown Evergreen has been demolished.

    The 117-year-old cottage on the corner of Douglas Park Road and Main Street was partially torn down in February 2016 after being vacant since 2008.

    A demolition crew tore down the rest of it Monday.

    In February 2016, Jeff Bradley, an engineer for the Ross-Lewis Trust, which owns the property, said he hoped to restore the building to how it looked in the 1930s, when it was a rustic tea room.
