  • Bowl caps year of life-learning...

    LAKEWOOD — “Coach, coach … Who would win in a battle between Superman and Batman?”

    It was a question that Jeffco Midget Football Association (JMFA) head coach for the Dakota Ridge Eagles, Dave Loomis, faced in all seriousness during the middle of a “very intense play” earlier this season. It was the kind of question that reminded Loomis that coaching 8 to 10-year-old football isn’t as straight-forward as it might seem.

    On a cool afternoon, a group of snowboarders came down off the the slopes to play a little baseball? In November?

    Apparently, any time is a good time for a ball game at Evergreen High School, especially if it’s against the Austrian parallel snowboarding team, who were nearby by training at Copper Mountain for the 2014 Snowboard World Cup in December. 

  • Trimarco ready for the spotlight

    The changes in Annie Trimarco’s game may not be all that noticeable at first glance, but take a closer look and one can see the Evergreen senior’s confidence growing by leaps and bounds.

    “My confidence has definitely gone up,” Trimarco said. “It has to do a lot with me being more comfortable and this being my last year. It’s my last chance to prove myself.”

  • Currants make a tasty meal for...

    Beneath the ponderosa pine that grows outside my window is a wax or squaw currant bush, Ribes cereum. This shrub is probably one of the most important plants that grows in the foothills.

    The fact that the berries turn a wax-like orange-red when ripe accounts for the common name of wax currant. The other common name of squaw currant simply refers to an old name for the Native American women who used these berries in many ways. Although tart, with the addition of a little sugar they make a tasty jelly or sauce.

    Swimming at Evergreen High School reached a new high last year with its record-breaking state championship season. Come May, five seniors will be graduating and heading to their chosen schools to continue their legacy around the country.

  • Evergreen can’t overcome cold...

    FORT MORGAN — Head coach Rob Molholm sat on the sideline as his team — players, assistant coaches and fans — huddled around each other on the field. Moments earlier, quarterback Dylan Reifeis sat on the frigid field, his hands wrapped around his helmet. Tanner Cassin struggled to get back to his feet.

  • Snow, migrating birds drift in...

    There are many who complain that the weather forecasters on television never predict the weather correctly.

    However, they were right on this past week when they predicted that a cold front would arrive on the afternoon of Monday, Nov. 10, and that it would remain for four days.

  • Plans for Winter Sports Center...

    There will be no sledding and no Nordic track at the Evergreen Golf Course this winter, after the Evergreen Park and Recreation District abandoned a plan to make the programs come to fruition.

    EPRD had been in talks with course owner Denver Parks and Recreation to lease the golf course and pro shop for $500 for the winter season, said Brad Bednar, Evergreen Lake House supervisor.
