  • Cougars’ scoring touch MIA...

    By Craig Harper — For the Courier

    ARVADA —Evergreen’s girls soccer team had high expectations after a 16-2 record and earning the No. 1 seed in last year’s Class 4A state tournament.

    However, a pair of 1-0 shutout losses to Air Academy and Standley Lake last week matched the loss total for the Cougars’ entire season last year.

  • Improvements planned at Genesee...

    Genesee Park, the home of Denver's bison herd, an outdoor education center and several trails, is set to undergo about $750,000 worth of improvements this spring, pending approval of Jefferson County officials.

    A hearing before the Jeffco Planning Commission is set for 6:15 p.m. March 30 after being postponed a week because of the March 23 snowstorm.

  • Blinking not recommended

    The spring sports season is in full swing.

    However, if you blink you may very well miss it. I encourage high school sports fans to check out the spring sports over the next two months before it’s all over in a hurry.

  • By the Numbers - 2015-16 winter...

    EVERGREEN — Here is a gaze back at the 2015-16 prep sports winter season for Evergreen High School, with some key numbers to help tell the story.

  • Goshawks again nesting in the...

    (Reprinted from March 23, 2009)

    While I was visiting Bosque del Apache, an exceptionally fine photograph of a northern goshawk was printed in the Community Eye feature of the Canyon Courier. It was taken by Richard Gristak on Bear Mountain. I was pleased to see this beautiful bird’s photo for two reasons: one, because I have not seen a goshawk in the area for some time, and secondly, because I had been wondering what hawk was making the birds at my feeder so antsy.

  • Getting down to business on the...

    EVERGREEN — Like the majority of the prep baseball teams across Colorado, Evergreen headed to a warmer climate for spring break.

    The Cougars took their 2-1 record to Arizona. Evergreen coach Steve Jones is able to get plenty of quality time on the baseball field in 80-degree weather instead worrying about snow accumulations.

  • Rock squirrels are rarely found...

    (Reprinted from March 20, 2010)

    It was shortly after we moved to Colorado that my late husband and I were birding one morning in Red Rocks Park, and we saw our first rock squirrel.

    Rock squirrels are the biggest of all the many ground-squirrel clan, and despite the fact that they are ground squirrels, they are quite capable of climbing over rocks and boulders and even well into trees as if they thought they were tree squirrels.

    National champs honored

    Evergreen High School graduates Jackson Sayler and Maura O’Brien — members of Adams State University’s 2015 men’s indoor track and field along with the 2015 women’s cross country team, will be honored at Pepsi Center on Thursday, March 17, during the first-round games of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament. Adams State won Division II national titles during the indoor track and cross country seasons last year.

  • Dillon ready to be the focal...

    BOULDER — What a ride it has been for Claudia Dillon the past four months.

    Evergreen’s 6-foot-2 freshman helped the Cougars’ volleyball team advance to the Class 4A state semifinals at the Denver Coliseum in November. Dillon was again a key cog as Evergreen’s girls basketball team had its best season in the program’s history, making it to the 4A state championship game March 12 at the Coors Events Center on the University of Colorado campus.
