  • 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.

  • Tent caterpillars help more than...

    (Reprinted from March 10, 2010)

    If you are one of the many people who find tent caterpillars objectionable in your backyard, now is the time to control them.

    I know they do little harm in our forests, but I find it difficult to be tolerant of them. Their favorite food is the new leaves of apple trees, so they were very common and considered destructive pests in the apple-growing sections of New York state where I grew up.

  • Rosy finches flock to tundra in...

    (Reprinted from March 5, 2008)

    For many years when winter visitors to Colorado called us to inquire about where they could see rosy finches, we would either take them or send them to the top of Squaw Mountain to visit the Swanlunds.

    When we were faced with this request recently, we didn’t know a really “sure spot” to send these visitors.

  • EHS boys seventh, girls eighth...

    Initially, the sheer number of athletes on Evergreen head coach Jarod Roberts’ team and the diversity of their talent was overwhelming, but on Friday he was overwhelmed with pride as his team finished the season at Steamboat Springs at the state championships.

  • Academy ends Platte Canyon’s...

    WESTMINSTER — Host Academy went on a 20-8 scoring barrage in the first quarter and led by 20 points — 32-20 ‚ at halftime on its way to a 71-23 thumping of Platte Canyon in the 3A Frontier District girls’ basketball semifinals on Thursday night.

  • Lobos falter in first playoff ...

    CONIFER — When Kellen Ireland and Abe Martin — the only two seniors on this year’s team — were freshmen, the Conifer Lobos were among the worst 4A boys’ basketball teams in the state. Literally.

  • Lobos tune-up for state

    LAKEWOOD — The road to redemption is sometimes long and arduous as the Conifer boys’ basketball team can attest to. But with its 74-58 victory over host Alameda on Thursday, the Lobos feel fresh and ready for the journey toward the 4A state playoffs.

  • Lady Huskies advance to Frontier...

    BAILEY — Platte Canyon had an inclination that Sequoia Garcia would be a problem with her outside shooting, and she was. Limiting her opportunities, especially after the first half, was crucial. The Lady Huskies did just that in the second half on Saturday.

  • Condit proves to be not your ...

    DENVER — It may have been Zander Condit’s first trip to the 3A state tournament, but he’s proven this season that he’s not your typical freshman.

    “It’s just another tournament. Yeah, it’s state and everything. People are here to watch me, but not everybody’s here to watch me. I’m not letting that get to me. It’s just another tournament, another match.”
