  • Sad sequel to the song sparrow...

    (Reprinted from July 2, 2008)

    It is sad to report that the song sparrow nest met with ill fate.

    On Sunday, June 22, Linda called me to say there were three young in the nest. We were all thrilled at the news, although I am still confused about when the eggs were laid. Apparently, they were laid earlier than we had thought. The female diligently fed the young that day, but on Monday, June 3, the young were gone from the nest. Only two unhatched eggs remained.

  • Column: Return lets me know what...

    Hi again. I’m back.

    Nine months ago, I didn’t envision a return to Evergreen Newspapers and Landmark Community Newspapers, Inc. Working in Boulder had given me a more regular work schedule, not as far of a drive from my Arvada home and a sense of being back in the operations of a daily newspaper. It also, however, reminded me of what I was missing.

  • 17U Cougars, Arena split ...

    Jack Hudd’s not fooling himself. He understands that he’s not a strikeout pitcher. When the rising Evergreen senior takes the mound, his objective is simple — induce ground balls and trust his defense.

    He did both of those things in the opener of the 17U Evergreen Cougars’ doubleheader with Arena Baseball on June 22 at Evergreen High School. Hudd scattered six hits while striking out only four, but six EHS runs in the first two innings backed him up in a 9-0 win.

  • A summer of fun

    Lunch boxes and backpacks scattered the field at Buchanan Park, but the kids – ages 6 to 12 — weren’t in class. No, this was summer sports camp, a week-long fun-filled day of activity, where campers play sports in the morning and go on other activities in the afternoon.

    Some will bring toys to play with at times, like Skylander figurines, but, in general, the Evergreen Park & Recreation District camp offers a mixture of skill development coupled with summer fun.

  • Clematis vines add interest,...

    (Reprinted from June 17, 2009)

    Several readers have asked recently for an article on clematis vines, since one of them is on the noxious weed list and others are not. Many people seem to be having trouble telling them apart.

    There have been five species in the genus clematis found on the eastern slope until recently, one white, one yellow and one blue.

    They have now been renamed, and although the plants are still the same, they are now in four different genera and six species.

  • Increase in prize money draws...

    The Evergreen Rodeo turned 50 this year, and it was indeed a golden anniversary.

    With a boost from community sponsors and the Evergreen Rodeo Association’s board of directors, the rodeo upped the ante considerably for participating cowboys and cowgirls, and it paid off by attracting some of the sport’s top performers, particularly in bareback riding.

  • A stirring comeback for Casey...

    By Craig Harper, for the Courier

    EVERGREEN — It hurt Casey Colletti both literally and emotionally to miss last year’s Evergreen Rodeo.

  • Saving birds from death from...

    (Reprinted from June 29, 2009)

    About five years ago I was reading about the thousands of migrating birds killed every year by flying into windows. I had been concerned about the many birds that hit my big picture windows every year and decided I should do something about it. The article I read also told about a college student who was doing research on the problem and mentioned that a black-plastic anti-deer fabric had the best results in his tests.
