  • Former Evergreen Crafters...

    The building that was once home to Evergreen Crafters in downtown Evergreen has been demolished.

    The 117-year-old cottage on the corner of Douglas Park Road and Main Street was partially torn down in February 2016 after being vacant since 2008.

    A demolition crew tore down the rest of it Monday.

    In February 2016, Jeff Bradley, an engineer for the Ross-Lewis Trust, which owns the property, said he hoped to restore the building to how it looked in the 1930s, when it was a rustic tea room.

  • Lady Cougars are Final Four bound

    Keigan Drysdale took a deep breath as she stood at the free throw line, peeking up at the scoreboard with 1 minute, 1 second remaining and her Evergreen Lady Cougars on the way to the Final Four.

    “I was in the moment. I was out of breath, tired, all over the place. I took one look at the clock,” said the Evergreen senior, who had missed four free throws earlier in the quarter. “I had to get it together. I took a deep breath, collected myself a little bit and just shot it like I do in practice.”

    For many years when winter visitors to Colorado called us to inquire about where they could see rosy finches, we would either take them or send them to the top of Squaw Mountain to visit the Swanlunds.

    When we were faced with this request recently, we didn’t know a really “sure spot” to send these visitors.
