  • Crippler lives up to its name

    Few have shed the blood, sweat and tears required to claim a Rocky Mountain Cycling Club (RMCC) Triple Crown title to their list of achievements, but on Aug. 11 five people did just that when they finished the inaugural Cripple Creek Crippler Bike Race, bringing the total number of 2012 Triple Crown achievers to 16.

  • Barn swallows are another...

    Two weeks ago, I wrote about the tree and violet-green swallows that nest in this area. They are the swallows that have dark blue-black backs and white under parts as they flash by.

  • Evergreen juniors may be class...

    Kyle Peterson may be the face of the foursome. After all, as a sophomore in 2011, he shot a 1-over-par 145 at Windsor's Pelican Lakes Golf Course to tie for seventh at the 4A boys golf state championship.

    He even shot a 2-under 70 on the first day of the two-day competition, including five birdies. So he more than proved his worth.

  • Town Race welcomes all in...

    People rang cowbells and cheered wildly at the Lake House as runners crossed the finish line in the Evergreen Town Race on Sunday.

    The 5- and 10K races were a beacon for Colorado’s elite runners, as well as for those who just enjoy running for fun, to come and sprint to the finish.

  • EHS boys golf tryouts set for...

    The Evergreen High School boys golf team will be holding tryouts Aug. 6-7 at Deer Creek Golf Club in Littleton and Indian Tree Golf Course in Arvada, respectively.
    Players need to shoot a 95 or better at Deer Creek to be invited back for Day 2 unless otherwise notified by coaches.
    The top four players after both days will make the team with another six to eight players to be selected.
    If you have questions, contact coach Mike Kuzava at 303-887-4736 or via e-mail at mkuzava@jeffco.k12.co.com. For more information, visit www.ehscougarsgolf.com.

  • Paddleboarding hits the Rockies

    John (J.B.) Bridenbaugh thought he was too late. His friends said he was too early, but from the looks of it his timing is just right.
    J.B., 54, and his wife Nancy, 50, of Bow Mar, opened Altitude Paddleboards, an unassuming paddleboard shop in downtown Littleton on June 8. Although it’s a relatively new sport to Colorado, the Bridenbaughs knew that they had to do something to help build a paddleboarding community.

  • Cougars leave room to improve

    ARVADA — For Evergreen baseball coach Matt Erholtz, the Cougars’ 11-3 loss to top-seeded Mountain Range on July 28 at Bart Mapps Field at Pomona High School was what it was.
    It represented what the summer season was as a whole for EHS in some ways. There were some positives, but there were some negatives as well. That’s why the first-year varsity head coach sees room for improvement after his team was bounced from the seven-team double-elimination North Metro League tournament.

  • Gymnast Pettitt-Kenney turning...

    She may only be 11 years old, but there’s little doubt that Teresa Pettitt-Kenney is grounded for her age. The petite adolescent is supremely structured. She likes having an organized list of things to do, especially when it comes to school work.
    “I like how you just turn the computer on and see what you have to do. I know what I have to do to get that done. I feel it’s less stressful,” Teresa said. “It’s easier for me.”

  • Staunton State Park prepares to...

    Staunton State Park is on track to open to the public in October, as volunteer recruitment, partner development and construction progress.

    A firm date for the opening of Colorado’s newest state park — on 3,500 acres north of Shaffers Crossing — will be set sometime in August, said park manager Jennifer Marten.

    Community partners and volunteers

    The Colorado Department of Parks and Wildlife hosted two open houses in April to recruit volunteers to help build and maintain the park and partners to raise money for it.
