Today's Sports

  • Wildflowers peek out through...

    Once more, I awakened to a white world. Yesterday, the landscape was offering green lawns in Lakewood and the foothills were starting to show green, small leaves just beginning to be seen between the dry gray-brown grasses. Snow overnight had changed this all to white again.

  • Woodpeckers make appearance at...

    Today brought both a hairy and downy woodpecker to the feeder outside my window. Although it is not a suet feeder, the black-oil sunflower seeds that were in the mixed seeds at the feeder seemed to meet their needs. The hairy and downy woodpeckers are often confused because they are similarly patterned, black-and-white woodpeckers, but they are very different in size.

    Both birds are found widely spread across America, very much alike except in the Pacific Northwest, where the white on the birds are not a clean pure white but is instead more grayish-brownish white.

  • First spring migrants appear in...

    As March draws to a close, it feels more like spring every day. I love this time of year when winter slowly loses its grip on the land, and spring gets closer every day.

    Some days when the sky is blue and the temperature rises well above 60 degrees, you feel like spring is already here. Those of us who have lived here for awhile know better; we also know it may snow tomorrow, and it will be a long time still before Elk Meadow looks green instead of grayish-tan.

  • Many local trees from willow...

    The willow family, Salicaceae, contains many of the deciduous trees found locally. Most everyone has learned to recognize the quaking aspen, the trees that turn our falls into a golden splendor. These and a few others are in the genus populus.

  • 4A Jeffco all-conference girls...

    The following are the 2014-15 4A Jeffco League all-conference girls swimming and wrestling teams:

  • Cougars finding their way after...

    WHEAT RIDGE — First-year Evergreen High boys swimming coach Marc Rios has taken a hands-off approach early on in the 2015 season. He’s gone as far as to let the Cougars choose which events they want to swim in. That was the case in Evergreen’s tri-meet at Wheat Ridge Rec Center on March 13 along with the host Farmers and Ralston Valley, in which the Cougars placed second with 97 points.

  • Lady Cougars find net late, stay...

    It wasn’t for a lack of effort, but it took a while — quite a while — for the Evergreen Lady Cougars to find a rhythm in their home opener March 14 against Pueblo Centennial. However, once they did, there was little the visiting Lady Bulldogs could do to stop them at Evergreen High School.

    Second-half goals from Sofia Weiner and Jahna Pusedu in the final 17 minutes erased a scoreless tie as Evergreen improved to 3-0 on the young season with a 2-0 victory.

  • Owls help keep rodent population...

    The great horned owl is probably the most common owl in the Evergreen area. A few of the smaller owls may be nearly as common during their brief breeding period, but the great horned owl is a permanent resident in local areas where adequate food and nesting sites are available.
