  • First-timers up for Triple Bypass

    Eight years ago, Craig Warner got back into cycling. It was the first time that he’d ridden since he was about 14, and he’s never ridden in the mountains ever.
    Yet, there was the 70-year-old Mingo, Iowa, resident at Bergen Park with his helmet strapped on and his bike ready to go at 6:30 a.m. on July 11, preparing to ride the 120 miles that is the first day of the two-day Triple Bypass.

  • Kids take the bait at Outdoor...

    Young people experienced the joy and frustration of fishing at the annual Outdoor Skills Day at Evergreen Lake recently.

    Children tall and small received rods and reels from Colorado Parks and Wildlife, and got help with attaching bait and bobbers. The kids stood along the bank of the lake near the Evergreen Nature Center, flocked by parents, Evergreen Trout Unlimited members and rangers, who helped them with casting and reeling in their lines.

    Evergreen residents Bob Weiner and Amy Armstrong have their hometown’s annual July 4 Freedom Run 5K down pat. But they are starting to hear footsteps.

  • Rare and interesting ferns grow...

    Ferns are not what one could call abundant in Colorado, but we have a few, including some that are rare and interesting.

    The large stands of tall ferns found in the moist, rich eastern woodlands are not to be found in our dry climate, but we do have some rock and cliff dwellers as well as a few that grow in the sub-alpine bogs and meadows.

    The most common fern in the Evergreen area is the delicate brittle fern, Cystoperis fragilis. The stipe or stem of this fern is dark brown to black at the base, shading to straw color or green.

  • Warblers’ beautiful songs fill...

    I can hear what I believe to be a yellow warbler singing, but I haven’t seen it yet, so I am not positive of my identification because I don’t trust my ears. Unfortunately, my hearing is not what it used to be.

  • 2015 spring sports all-...

    The following are all-conference selections for the 2015 spring sports season in track & field:

  • Small but enthusiastic group...

    On one hand, Andrew Stafford’s role as director of development for Altitude FC is to introduce the game of soccer to younger, novice players. 

    But it’s more than just that he was teaching to the quaint group of participants at Evergreen Middle School from June 22-26 at the first of two developmental camps this summer. Stafford worked with the small, but enthusiastic group on developing a lifelong love for the game, teamwork and social networking skills.

  • Volunteers improve Saddleback...

    After hiking up a steep slope with two heavy containers of water, crew leader Lauren Riegler of Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado coordinated efforts to develop a trail on Saddleback Mountain on Friday.

    Divided into four groups, 49 volunteers cleared overgrown sections of the trail leading to the summit and installed steps to divert water away from the path and make hiking easier. During the seven hours they worked, volunteers placed 88 check steps and worked on more than 1,000 feet of trail on the mountain, Riegler said.
