  • Invasion of the destructive...

    Editor’s Note: Sylvia’s column will reappear next week. This column is reprinted from Dec. 10, 2008.

    Christmas is not far away, and as we do our shopping and baking, our thoughts turn to Christmas decorations. In England and in our Eastern states, mistletoe is an important part of Christmas. The mistletoe common throughout the South grows mainly on oaks. It forms huge clumps or balls, and the whole plant generally is cut from the tree. The sprigs with the white berries are usually sold for Christmas decorating.

  • Evergreen product Haebe wins D-...

    Ryan Haebe had never won a collegiate cross country race before. But now not only did he score his first career win, taking home the Division II national championship on Nov. 19 at Plantes Ferry Athletic Complex in Spokane, Wash., his school, Western State, won its first team championship since 2005 to boot.

  • Buckwalter nabs all-state honors

    Evergreen senior volleyball player Brenna Buckwalter was recently selected to play in both the Colorado Coaches of Girls Sports all-state volleyball game and the Colorado High School Coaches Association all-star game.
    The CCGS game, in which the 4A Blue team was coached by Evergreen’s Katie Ryan, was played Nov. 20 at Arvada West High School. Unfortunately, Buckwalter was unavailable to play due to family commitments. The CHSCA games will be played June 7-9, 2012 at Adams State College in Alamosa.

  • Body of steel

    For Glenn Vogel, it was a unique sensation. There was his son, 6-foot-2, 220-pound Cameron, standing on the stage at the Mr. Teen Colorado bodybuilding competition in Denver and Glenn’s long-time training partner Mondre Van Der Lee noted the irony of it all.

  • Wild turkeys not very abundant...

    I well remember the first wild turkey I ever saw. I was birding in Alleghany State Park with a friend, Kay McCann, and she said, “Let’s walk down this trail to the river. About a week ago, someone saw a wild turkey near here.” We went down the trail and sure enough, on the far bank of the river were two wild turkeys getting a drink. We froze in our tracks, and the big birds continued to drink.

  • All-conference teams

  • Cougars go down fighting

    LAKEWOOD — The raw emotion that Rob Molholm showed at midfield was as real as real can be. The Evergreen Cougars football coach truly does hold a special place in his heart for his team. So when the Cougars’ season came to an abrupt halt on Nov. 12 at Trailblazer Stadium following a 35-27 3A state football playoff tournament-opening loss to Palisade it was a bitter pill to swallow.

  • Evergreen denied 4A boys soccer...

    COMMERCE CITY -- Skyler Erickson punched home the game's lone goal in the 63rd minute and fifth-seeded Mullen avenged a season-opening loss with a 1-0 victory over Evergreen on Nov. 9 in the 4A boys soccer state championship game at Dick's Sporting Goods Park.


    Zach Sunderhuse assisted on Erickson's goal for Mullen (13-5-2).
    Second-seeded Evergreen (17-3) had its 10-game winning streak snapped. The Cougars were looking to win the school's second state championship and first since 1989.

  • Surf scoter a rare sight at...

    Tuesday and Wednesday, Nov. 1 and 2, Loie Evans identified an immature surf scoter on Evergreen Lake. No matter how good a birder you are or how sure you are of your identification, it is always a good idea to have at least one other person see and identify a rare bird.
