    Two weeks ago, we had a small group of 15 glossy ibis at the lake, and I promised to write about them this week. The glossy ibis is usually divided into two subspecies: the glossy ibis in the East and the white-faced glossy ibis in the West.

    However, the problem lies in the fact that the birds are identical except for the white feathers at the base of the bill in the white-faced glossy ibis. Sometimes this is present in western birds but only in small amounts, and sometimes not at all. Therefore, it is difficult to positively name the western birds.

    AURORA — It doesn’t matter which sport you are competing in It is always difficult to beat the same team three times in the same season. Evergreen’s varsity baseball season came to an abrupt end May 17 as the Cougars failed to defeat Green Mountain for a third time this year.
    The Rams won 8-2 as part of the double-elimination 4A state tournament at Cherokee Trail High School. This season was special for the Cougars (18-5).

  • EHS’ playoff run meets an end...

    COLORADO SPRINGS — For all of the first half and most of the second, the Evergreen Lady Cougars proved they belonged in the 4A state girls soccer quarterfinals, even if their No. 24 seeding may have indicated otherwise. But, eventually, all good things do come to an end.

  • Tenney, Holley to represent EHS...

    ARVADA — The last time Madison Tenney played at Indian Tree Golf Club she posted her highest score of the 2014 season. She topped that score four days later at The Club of Rolling Hills. But in the week prior to the 4A Metro West Regional on May 8 she prepared herself for what Indian Tree had to offer. Whatever she did it worked.
    The Evergreen senior carded a 5-over 79 to finish third, earning her third straight trip to the 4A girls golf state tournament.

  • Bellatti’s homer propels Cougars

    Evergreen  shortstop Josh Bellatti is insistent that nothing was going through his mind when he was standing at the plate with a one ball and two strike count in the bottom of the seventh inning against Lewis-Palmer. A trip to All-Star Park for the 4A state baseball tournament was on the line and Bellatti delivered in a big way.

  • Pac Rugby dominant, recaptures...

    GLENDALE — AJ Eleniewski stared at the scoreboard, seeing the results of toughness, good defense and hard hits. It also reflected a team that wanted badly to win.
    What he saw at Infinity Park on May 10 was a 31-3 PAC RFC victory over the Jr. Gents of Aspen in a Division II rugby state championship game that was every bit as one-sided on the scoreboard as it was on the pitch.

  • Dawn chorus at Evergreen Lake...

    Time flies. Already it is Friday, May 9, as I write, and spring, which has come and gone several times this past week, is now promising another 15 to 16 inches of snow on Sunday. Every day, the grass grows greener outside my window.

    I am at the moment at the Life Care Center of Evergreen, since I slipped at home and hurt my back. My hope is that a few days of physical therapy will set things right so that I can go home. I really need someone to live in with me. So far, I haven’t found anyone, so it may be awhile.
