  • Cougars rolling along, win 10th...

    By Craig Harper
    For the Courier
    An early-season coaching change and a tough home loss to Wheat Ridge to begin 4A Jeffco League play apparently were no big deal to Evergreen.
    The Cougars completed a 3-0 week that included atonement against the fourth-ranked Farmers with a 10-5 home victory over third-place Green Mountain on April 26. Evergreen pushed its winning streak to 10 and remained in position to share the 4A Jeffco title if both teams win out this week.

  • Consistent scores keep EHS in...

    ARVADA — The course was a little longer than what the Evergreen Lady Cougars have been used to in 2014, and the scores reflected that. Yet, still, Evergreen, thanks to consistent scoring from top to bottom, was right where it’s been for most of the 4A Jeffco League season.

  • Peaks to Plains Trail project...

    Eight golden shovels scraped into rocky Clear Creek County soil April 23 to signify the start of the long-gestating Peaks to Plains Trail project.

    Officials from Clear Creek and Jefferson counties, as well as state representatives, met for the groundbreaking ceremony on the side of U.S. 6 at Tunnel 5 on Clear Creek's Oxbow parcel.

  • Eight Evergreen High student-...

    Evergreen head football coach Rob Molholm has never had a Division-I football player before now, but this one is not your typical on-the-field prospect.
    For three years, Shelly Brobst has served as a team manager for the Cougars. On April 16, she was one of eight student-athletes to sign a letter of intent during a ceremony at Evergreen High School as she’ll be attending Colorado State University in the fall and working with the Rams’ football program.
    So is Brobst’s signing somewhat atypical of the usual student-athlete signings?

  • Cougars get it done vs. Bulldogs

    Legendary performer Elvis Presley gave his entourage TCB jewelry as a symbol of taking care of  business whenever they were out on tour in the 1970s. Evergreen baseball coach Dale Hutchings must have been inspired by the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll. He instills the same attitude among his players this season.

  • Pair of free kicks set back...

    LAKEWOOD — Opportunities were few and far between for the Evergreen Lady Cougars. That, and Wheat Ridge’s capability to make the most of two set pieces as opposed to one for Evergreen was the difference in a 2-1 Lady Farmers victory April 18 at Lakewood Memorial Field.
    “We have to defend them better. We got one, and usually you hope that carries the day, but we gave up two set pieces,” Evergreen head coach Peter Jeans said. “That’s the difference. Oh well.”

  • Of eagles, recycling and...

    Decked out in headgear resembling a World War I flying ace, a large bald eagle commanded attention at the Mountain Area Earth Day Fair at Evergreen Lake Park on Saturday.

    “She’s good in the hood,” said handler Dawn Carrie of HawkQuest while holding the majestic bird on her wrist.

    The eagle was wearing the leather hood because it is blind in one eye, Carrie said. Without the eye covering, the eagle constantly turns its head to try to see things, she explained.

  • Answers complex about why fewer...

    Many readers of this column have asked me recently if something has happened to the birds that reduced their numbers because they have had fewer birds at their feeders than usual.

    I scratched my head to know how to answer their questions because this is a very involved question that takes more space than I can use every week, and few people are concerned enough to get that involved.
