    THORNTON — For spectators, swim meets can seem daunting. Especially when trying to decipher one swimmer from the next. After all they look the same with their team suits and caps.
    The trick is to find the one difference, such as goggles, or in the case of 10 year-old Faith Hellard, a smile as big and deep as the pool. Hellard swims year-round and summer league for the Evergreen Hurricanes.

  • House wrens working their way...

    The little brown house wren has been part of my life for as long as I can remember. They always nested in a box in our yard on the farm where I grew up, and they were common nesting birds in most every yard in the village.

  • Gifted Tenney gets taste of state

    Madison Tenney is a naturally-gifted athlete, says Evergreen girls golf coach Mike Kuzava. That in itself had a lot to do with the Evergreen sophomore qualifying for the 2012 4A state girls golf championship.
    Tenney, who started on No. 10 both days, tied for 47th with a 38-over-par 184 total on May 21-22 at Greeley’s Boomerang Golf Course. She finished tied with Gunnison’s Jennifer Ehmsen and Florence’s Mirenda King.

  • By the numbers: Canyon Courier...

  • Rare Lewis’ woodpecker sighted...

    May has had its usual fling of one last snowstorm. Fortunately, this year it was just about four inches, not the four feet it brought us a few years ago. Now that it has succeeded in ruining Mother’s Day for a good many people, it seems to be clearing up and the coming week’s forecast looks like we will be having not just spring, but summer weather.

  • Evergreen’s season over, but...

    BROOMFIELD — It was just one play. Other than that the Evergreen Lady Cougars, before and after the game, felt they belonged with fourth-seeded Broomfield in the 4A state girls soccer playoffs.
    But that one play — a corner kick from Chaya Ahrens to Kerri Marquardt, who one-timed the ball into the lower right corner of the net — was all the Lady Eagles would need for a 1-0 victory on May 11 at a rain-soaked Elizabeth Kennedy Stadium. Broomfield (13-3-1) stretched its unbeaten streak to eight games.

  • O’Brien, Sayler set pace for...

    LAKEWOOD — From the start, Maura O’Brien, Sammy Skold and Erin Dobey took charge of the girls’ 1,600 meters at the 4A Jeffco League championships May 12. The race was never in doubt. Just which one of the three would win proved to be the only drama.
    O’Brien, who led for most of the four-lap event, overcame a late-charging Skold to score the victory in 5 minutes, 16.71 seconds at Jefferson County Stadium. But Skold (5:16.88) and Dobey (5:18.83) weren’t far behind en route to a one-two-three Evergreen finish.
