  • Hummingbird feeders need...

    Once more we have snow in May. This is a bit disturbing because we have just had some fine spring weather in April, and this seems like we are going backward. We don’t really want to see winter return, but it is not unusual. All of the ice was off Evergreen Lake by April 30.

  • Confounding phalaropes are...

    In last week’s article, I mentioned that many people had reported seeing phalaropes on Buchanan Pond on Sunday, April 21. Since then, I have had many inquiries about these birds such as: “What are they?” “Why haven’t we ever seen one?” “Where are they found?”

  • EHS pleased just to play

    GOLDEN — It hasn’t been the greatest of seasons for the Evergreen girls golf team. But for that matter, it hasn’t been all that great for the rest of the state either.

  • Lady Cougars stay on task,...

    The first half was a free-flowing offensive showcase, with both host Evergreen and Conifer pelting shots on goal from long distance.
    The second half was all about the Lady Cougars staying focused on the task at hand. That task was not only staying unbeaten in the 4A Jeffco League, but doing something they haven’t done in three years — and that’s beat Conifer.

    LAKEWOOD — Sometimes the baseball can look like a beach ball to a hitter on fire. Sometimes the strike zone can look smaller than a golf ball to a struggling pitcher.
    Evergreen’s baseball team knocked off Conifer 18-3 on April 25 at Keli McGregor Field at All-Star Park. The Lobos issued 14 walks among seven pitchers, including eight walks in the first inning. It was 7-0 before Conifer took its first swing.

    Two seniors made their college choices official last week during signing ceremonies at Evergreen High School.
    Sam Hamilton signed with the University of Denver to play soccer and Colin Elmgreen will take his talents to Nebraska Wesleyan University to play basketball.

  • Petrik, Lady Cougars beat the...

    LAKEWOOD — Whether Kylee Petrik has a clock in her head or not can be debated. Literally, we know that she doesn’t, but figuratively, it certainly seems possible.

  • Winter’s return plays havoc with...

    The grass is green, flowers are blooming and the birds are chirping. Those are typically signs of spring. But not here. Not this year.
    Old Man Winter’s unwelcome return in recent weeks has played havoc with the high school sports schedule. Events have either been outright canceled or postponed multiple times. It’s causing a logistical nightmare for athletic directors to reschedule events for later in the season.

  • From the sounds of it, squirrels...

    During the past week, two different people requested information about the “baby” squirrels they have been seeing in their yard. From their description, I believe they have been seeing western red squirrels.
