    By Devan Filchak

    For the Courier

    Ten local residents learned about ways to preserve and protect the Bear Creek Watershed in a course offered by the Evergreen Metro District and the watershed association.

    The class, at the Evergreen Metro District facility on Stagecoach Drive, covered a variety of topics, including hydrology of Bear Creek, pollution, wildlife impacts and potential citizen monitoring.

    In the past, Evergreen High students took the class and then embarked on a beautification project at the school.

  • 'We like to play. We have...

    GOLDEN — Home plate sits off to the left of the field, away from the catcher. There are two first bases — one for the fielder and another for the runner. After two strikes a batter’s next hit ball must be fair or he’s out. A team can only score five runs in any given inning, except for the seventh when it can score at will. Oh, and there are four outfielders.
    Welcome to slow-pitch senior softball.

  • Tenney’s game on the upswing

    ENGLEWOOD — If one was to identify Madison Tenney’s golf game they could come up with a number of qualities to define it.
    There is her athletic ability, the kind in which Evergreen head coach Mike Kuzava could tell her what type of shot she needs to hit and the Lady Cougars junior can hit it. A lot of kids can’t grasp that concept.
    There’s also her temperament. She is maturing not only as a golfer, but as a person, Kuzava said.
    “She is doing nothing but getting better,” he said.

  • Bird sightings enhance a simple...

    The old adage “Be careful what you wish for because you just might get it,” came to mind today when the spring weather I have been wishing for came with some gusty winds with temperatures in the 80s. That’s not spring; it’s even warmer than most of our summer weather. I was out cleaning up the yard a bit and sweeping the patio, and I thought I would melt in the process.

  • Pam’s Jam a rousing success on...

    For the Courier
    Elli Rouse wanted to look scary.
    The 11 year-old had two big streaks of eye black perfectly applied on each side of her nose. The problem? Both were accompanied by a douse of purple and red glitter on top.
    Rouse and a string of other young and well-spoken volunteers, all affiliated with the Stingers Soccer Club, helped pull off the fourth annual Pam’s Jam, a round-robin soccer jamboree, at Marshdale Elementary School on May 18.

  • Relays embrace chance to run

    LAKEWOOD — Sammy Skold will have plenty of memories to cherish now that her athletic career at Evergreen High School is over. That includes this year’s 4A state track and field championships.
    The end results may not stack up with those from years past, but that doesn’t mean they won’t be memorable.
    “Oh man, it’s been a long four years — definitely four years I’m going to miss,” Skold said.
