  • EHS point guard Haas to miss...

    Evergreen senior point guard Nathan Haas will miss the first month of the 2014-15 boys basketball season after being diagnosed with a hairline fracture of the L4 vertebra. He also injured the L5 vertebra after landing wrong on a 360 dunk attempt during open gym basketball practice in mid-October.

  • Juncos are beginning to arrive...

    While hiking through the winter woods, the persistent call of chickadees will often alert you to the presence of a mixed flock of winter birds. These flocks usually consist of only a few chickadees, two or three nuthatches, and possibly a song sparrow, a downy woodpecker and a few dark-eyed juncos.

    Juncos are small, mostly gray members of the finch family, which are regular winter visitors at most local feeders. In 2000, the many species of juncos were brought together as only two species: the dark-eyed junco and the yellow-eyed junco.

  • Alliance with Pro Challenge...

    Organizers of the Triple Bypass bike ride might partner with the USA Pro Cycling Challenge race soon to help the well-known local event grow, according to its director.

    Pro Cycling officials contacted Triple Bypass organizers recently to offer marketing, promotion and potential sponsorship help, said Peter Morales, president of the board of directors for Team Evergreen, the nonprofit group that has run the Triple Bypass for 26 years.

  • Wildlife officials seek opinions...

    Wildlife officials want to know what you think about the Mount Evans State Wildlife Area — especially about dog walking and hunting there.

    They’ve gotten a bit of input from residents, but they’re looking for more, said Jennifer Churchill, a spokeswoman for Colorado Parks and Wildlife. The state agency manages the area west of Evergreen in the Upper Bear Creek drainage near the base of Mount Evans. The survey is open online through Nov. 20

  • A history of horsetails

    Do you still look in old familiar places to see if there are any new plants or animals around?

    Since I moved to Elk Run Assisted Living and I am no longer driving, I find that I am looking more and more frequently at the few things I can see from my windows and those that are available around the building.

    FOOTBALL
    Evergreen blanks Arvada, closes in on league title
    LAKEWOOD — The Evergreen Cougars inched closer to a third 3A Metro North conference title in four years with a 40-0 shutout of Arvada on Oct. 18 at Trailblazer Stadium.

    The shutout was the third this season for Evergreen, which improved to 8-0 overall, 3-0 in league play.

  • Column: Hunter was the right,...

    Laurice “Lo” Hunter is a pioneer. Though her name, officially, wasn’t anywhere to be found inside the gymnasium at Evergreen High School prior to Oct. 17, her legacy most certainly was present. All one had to do was to look into the rafters to see the nine volleyball state championships Evergreen won between 1976 and 1985.

    But now, a banner resides on the far wall of Evergreen High School proclaiming the school’s court as Lo Hunter Gymnasium, and nobody is more deserving of the honor.

  • Lady Cougars sweep Conifer

    As if playing rival Conifer wasn’t enough motivation, the Evergreen Lady Cougars honored the legacy of their program, particularly Hall of Fame coach Laurice “Lo” Hunter, on Oct. 17 at Evergreen High School.

    And what a way to celebrate Hunter’s legacy. After naming the court at EHS in her name, the Lady Cougars overcame a back-and-forth start to score a 25-23, 25-18, 25-19 victory in front of a raucous crowd at Lo Hunter Gymnasium.

    BOYS TENNIS
    Raeder’s stay at state is short after a first-round loss
    PUEBLO — Henry Raeder’s appearance at No. 3 singles in the 4A state boys tennis tournament was a brief one after the Evergreen junior was toppled in the first round at Pueblo City Park by Air Academy’s Neil Orton.

    Orton, a senior, won their first-round match 6-1, 6-3.

  • Evergreen boys, girls teams...

    LITTLETON — The somber look on the faces of Evergreen top runners didn’t tell the real story. After seeing Golden’s Alec Hornecker and Brian Whitfield cross the finish line first and second at the 4A Jeffco League cross country championships on Oct. 10 at Clement Park, Evergreen’s boys team felt that a repeat league title wasn’t happening.

    But it did.
