  • Evergreen teen finds his calling...

    Instead of attending English Composition 101 and anatomy lectures, Winston Buchanan, 19, of Evergreen opted to spend his most recent college semester building igloos and rock-climbing.

    Buchanan took part in the National Outdoor Leadership School’s Spring Semester in the Rockies program, which included expedition courses in which students of all ages learn technical outdoor and survival skills, leadership and environmental ethics.

    DENVER — Evergreen’s boys’ golf team not only was the best team in 4A Jeffco it was the best in all of Jeffco on Aug. 29 during the 5A/4A Jeffco League tournament at Bear Creek Golf Club.

  • 2016 cross country preview:...

    Brandon Swenson doesn’t like to lose, according to Evergreen boys cross country coach Rob Wright. And that’s probably so. 

    But can the Evergreen High senior win it all in 2016? After all, he placed seventh last year at the 4A state meet in his first year with the Cougars after transferring over from Clear Creek High.

    The long, straggly dirty blond hair waves as Cameron Hays walks off the practice field.

    “It started getting a bit long. I might as well keep it,” Hays said of his flowing mane. “I started growing it out, and I started liking it more and more. My dad hates it, but he’s kind of gotten used to it. We’ll see how long it lasts. It looks all right with the helmet.”

    It’s beginning to look a lot like autumn, I’m unhappy to say. Seldom does autumn come this early, but the drought seems to have made plants mature early, and many of the late summer and autumn flowers are blooming or past blooming already.

    When any plant is stressed by drought or any other condition, they do what all plants do: They bloom and produce seeds to carry on the species. Last week, Sylvia Robertson brought me a plant specimen taken from a large patch at Evergreen Lake.

  • Coaching change brings hope to ...

    The feeling was mutual the first time Evergreen High gymnasts and Tabor Cowden crossed paths. They didn’t know him, and he wasn’t sure just what he was getting when he took over as head coach of the Lady Cougars’ gymnastics program this season.

    Jenica Watts understands that being a head coach is a lot of work. There’s a lot of behind-the-scenes things that has to happen. But it’s worth it. It’s rewarding. She gets to find that out first-hand this season.

  • Boys soccer: Cougars eyeing...

    The bull’s-eye is there, and Evergreen knows it. After all, the boys’ soccer team is the defending 4A state champions. 

    The pressure is certainly looming considering the Cougars will open 2016 as the top-ranked team in the CHSAA preseason poll. But if there’s one thing head coach Ross Fowler won’t hear before EHS even steps foot on the pitch is the word repeat.

  • Evergreen stadium committee...

    The press box and a concession stand are already in place. Now the Evergreen High School stadium committee is eyeing a bigger concession stand with public restrooms and team locker rooms, improved lighting, a ramp and seating for an additional 1,200 fans at Evergreen High School.

    The proposal, if it comes to fruition, would allow EHS to host state football playoff games on its home turf. Furthermore, it would improve the overall atmosphere of athletic and band competitions.

    There is a small order of birds known as goatsuckers. The scientific name is the Caprimulgiformes, which comes from the Latin Caprimulgus, a milker of goats and forma or form.

    This name comes from the old belief that these birds, which are often seen in low sweeping flight over meadows, were sucking the milk out of goats. There are not as many species in this order as there are in some other orders such as finches and warblers.
