  • American dippers are the area’s...

    When walking in the parking lot in downtown Evergreen on a snowy winter day, you may hear a bubbling bird song. It you are so fortunate, sit quietly along the bank of Bear Creek and listen.

    You are not hearing some unfortunate canary that someone has left out in the cold, but you are hearing one of our most unusual songbirds, the American dipper.

  • Plans for second community...

    A community garden planned at Wilmot Elementary School is receiving cautious support from the Evergreen Park and Recreation District. To land funding, Evergreen’s Alliance for Sustainability needs the district to submit a grant request to Great Outdoors Colorado.

  • Weather, tough slopes slow down...

    Going into the 2014-15 state skiing championships, the Evergreen Cougars had plenty of reasons to believe they were a top-3 team. 

    Even going into the final day of the two-day competition Feb. 19-20 at Keystone, there was hope they would reach that level, but numerous factors, including weather and a difficult course, cost EHS.

  • Lady Cougars struggling with...

    LAKEWOOD — Evergreen girls basketball coach Amy Bahl isn’t a big fan of the 4A Jeffco League’s cross-division format for the final week of the regular season. 

    Bahl’s Lady Cougars finished second in their division with a 10-3 record prior to the final week, but went 0-2 against the top two teams on the opposite side, including a Feb. 20 season-ending 49-43 loss at second-place Green Mountain.

  • Cougars seal playoff ticket

    WESTMINSTER — It was the kind of atmosphere that Evergreen head boys basketball coach Scott Haebe said that his team can learn to respond from. It was a playoff-like atmosphere Feb. 20 at Standley Lake.

    And maybe it was a playoff game for the Cougars. Finishing no higher than third in their division of the 4A Jeffco League, which included the conference’s top two teams — Golden and Valor Christian — every win down the stretch was much-needed.

  • Storksbill blooms may be seen in...

    Once more, a fine snow is drifting down on the meadows that surround me. Elk Run Assisted Living is located in an offshoot of the Elk Meadow Open Space area.

    I watched the fog move across the meadow and as usual this time of year, it brought another snowstorm with it. The grasses in the meadow are dry, tan or yellow, with nary a sign of spring green.

  • No matter how you spell it, it’s...

    I don’t know how to write this article about bluebirds, blue birds, Blue birds or Blue Birds found in this area. All four spellings plus a hyphenated form are found in various bird books. I, myself, prefer the single word of bluebird.

    Friends returning last week from Santa Fe told me they had seen bluebirds eating juniper just south of the state line in New Mexico. My friends thought the birds were on their way back for the summer. They well may have been.
