  • Jeffco Open Space sets goals for...

    With help from volunteers, Apex Park may be partially open to hikers and bikers by this spring, according to a timeline established by the staff at Jeffco Open Space.

    The park in Golden has been closed since September, when flooding caused extensive trail damage. Other parks in the Jeffco Open Space system, which also were severely impacted, are slated for repairs in the coming months.

  • Cougars have big shoes to fill...

    Kirk Petrik knows it will be hard for Evergreen’s alpine skiers to top the 2013 season. The Cougars qualified 37 boys and girls for the state meet, where they crowned an individual champion, had two runners-up finishes and claimed the team scoring honors in three of the four disciplines en route to winning both team titles.

  • Kisiel, Lady Cougars solve GW’s...

    As Evergreen returned from winter break, sophomore post player Samantha Kisiel sat on the bench, the result of missing an earlier practice.
    Her punishment was to bide her time and come off the bench against George Washington on Jan. 3. When she entered the game, she made sure to make the most of the opportunity.
    Kisiel scored a career-high 22 points as the Lady Cougars pulled out a 57-46 victory in front of a sparse Evergreen High crowd. Kisiel scored most of her points in the paint as Evergreen solved GW’s 3-2 zone defense.

  • Haas, Cougars tame Lions

    LITTLETON — It started with a 3-pointer, then a layup and then another. Before long, Evergreen junior point guard Nathan Haas was in a zone.

  • Dove sightings becoming common

    During the holidays, I received word from a reader of this column, Brian Parsons, that he had what he believed to be a pair of turtle doves at his feeder south of Evergreen. He described the birds as being “a pair of light-colored doves with a black neck ring.”

     

    I talked to Mr. Parsons on the phone, but I have not as yet been able to see the birds myself. His description could be either of two birds, both of which have been seen in Colorado in the past.

  • $49,000 grant secured for...

    The Evergreen Trails Master Plan project took an important step recently when it received a $49,000 grant from Great Outdoors Colorado.

    The plan envisions a trail network running from the high school to Wulf Rec Center to the Evergreen Library, and then through downtown along Bear Creek.

  • The Year in Review

    Both the Evergreen boys and girls basketball teams made some noise at the state tournament, as did the girls soccer program. Madison Tenney just missed a top-20 finish in girls golf and the EHS boys tennis team sent two doubles squads to state. And those were some of the stories that didn’t make the list. The Canyon Courier looks back at 10 stories that highlighted the year of 2013.

  • Gray-colored birds visit feeders...

    Reprinted from Jan. 6, 2010

    It is winter again this week. Snowflakes have been in the air several times, but so far, we haven’t accumulated much, just added clean sheets to the snow bed that was already on the ground.

  • Kinnikinnick provides green...

    Green is not a color you expect to see this time of year when you look out the window. Ponderosa pines are nearly totally dormant and give an appearance of being black when seen against the snow.

  • Silver Creek snaps Lady Cougars...

    LONGMONT — The Evergreen Lady Cougars had their three-game winning streak snapped with a 51-39 road loss at Silver Creek on Dec. 20.
    The host Lady Raptors built a 23-11 halftime lead before Evergreen closed to 33-27 after three quarters. But the Lady Cougars couldn’t quite complete the comeback.
    Emilie Rembert led Silver Creek with 23 points, while Julie Dauer added 12.
