  • Lobos take 3rd at dual tourney

    CONIFER — Conifer 285-pounder Don Fuller was one of four Lobos to go undefeated as the host team placed third in the 10-team Conifer Duals Tournament on Jan. 8 at CHS.

    One of Fuller’s wins was a victory over Ralston Valley’s Conner Dressel, who handed Fuller one of his two losses earlier this season.

    Also going undefeated for Conifer were 125-pounder Hunter Shively, 130-pounder Dylan Shively and 152-pounder Travis Himmelman.

  • Starlings are more interesting...

    Nearly every winter just after a snow storm, people call me to ask about a beautiful bird at their feeder. It is described in several ways, but usually along the lines that it is mostly black with a lot of purple and green on it, and its whole body is spattered with white stars. When I tell them it sounds like a starling, almost without exception, they reply, “Why, no, it’s not a starling. It’s beautiful.”

  • Cold weather brings out unusual...

    As the holidays finally came to a close, a brief winter storm left about five inches of snow on the ground around the yard. It also brought bitter cold weather with temperatures way below zero.
    However, this is not surprising since January is usually our coldest month. Winter is here. It is the one month that I would gladly leave this area for someplace warmer.

  • Dawg Nation persevering in...

    Martin Richardson considers himself a glass half-full kind of guy. But even the heartiest of person would have a hard time dealing with the heartbreak that has surrounded the Dawg Nation the past couple of years.

    “It’s been a crazy tough year for all of us,” said Richardson, the founder and president of the Dawg Nation. “But the silver lining is what we’ve done with it. Instead of moping we’ve started our own foundation. It’s a real silver lining.”

  • Kinnikinnick, and winter in the...

    Winter seems to have settled in with a fairly stable blanket of white. However, it is not too deep for walking in most of our area, and all but the back roads are fairly passable. This makes it possible for most anyone to get out to see what winter has in store.

  • Year in review: Top 10 sports...

    2010 saw many things, from the Evergreen football team making a rare state playoff appearance to individual state titles in gymnastics and skiing to a domininating run by the cross country team. The following is a list of the Canyon Courier’s Top 10 sports stories for the past year:

  • Weasel sighting was among bird...

     

     

    The Christmas Bird Count is over. Sunday, Dec. 19, was a pleasant day as CBC days go.

  • Cougars misfire on offense

    BROOMFIELD — It’s not like Evergreen’s boys basketball team didn’t give itself chances. The Cougars’ defense more than held its own against Broomfield on Dec. 18. But it was the team’s offense that didn’t come through for one reason or another.

  • Broomfield game learning...

    BROOMFIELD — There was no question about it — the Evergreen Lady Cougars were facing a tall order playing four-time defending 4A state champion Broomfield on its home court Dec. 18.

    That would be tall both literally and figuratively.

  • Clear Creek grapplers top...

    Rick Riley was hoping he would get more matches than the ones he did get. That’s how much the Clear Creek 152-pounder loves to wrestle.

    Yet even still his two matches were more than most got Dec. 15 as Clear Creek’s varsity wrestling team hosted mountain rivals Evergreen and Platte Canyon in the annual triangular match. And Riley made the most of those matches, scoring a pair of pinfall victories as the Golddiggers swept their dual bouts.
