  • Area wildflowers are a hit now...

    June has mostly been a beautiful month if you can overlook the troublesome hailstorm that shattered everyone’s

    garden last week.

    Hail is always likely in June. There is not much we can do about it. Sometimes a protective row cover will take the brunt of it and keep plants from being shredded so seriously, but I can’t recall a June that we haven’t had at least one destructive hailstorm. It is so regular that long ago I started calling June the hail month.

  • Trojans punish Cougars&rsquo...

    The Evergreen Cougars’ summer league baseball team was enjoying a fine season. That is until they ran into a tough Longmont team that capitalized on several Cougar miscues and used five home runs to power its way past Evergreen, 13-2, on June 19 at Evergreen High School.

    It didn’t go the way Ian Mather had hoped it would, but, after all he had been through in the past couple of months, at least he was riding.

  • White pelicans make an...

    There have been several reports of white pelicans this spring, most on the reservoirs east of Denver and even a small flock on Evergreen Lake for part of one morning.

    White pelicans are regular migrants through the area and nesting summer residents on the prairie reservoirs in eastern and northeastern Colorado. White pelicans can be seen in both spring and fall at Barr Lake and other reservoirs. They nest at Riverside Reservoir and on prairie lakes northward into the prairie provinces of Canada.

    GREELEY — There are a number of things that Grace Beaudin could remember from playing in her last high school sporting event ever. But the Evergreen senior will remember one thing more than anything else.

    GREELEY — Evergreen High School senior Kate Oakes had a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity when she played volleyball at the Colorado High School Coaches Association All-State Games. 

  • Get outside and help eradicate...

    I don’t know where the month of May went, but it just disappeared with the spring snow.

    Now we are well into the month of June and the annual Community Weed Day is this coming Saturday, June 11.

    This is a very special day, open to the public and one of the few things that is still free. Community Weed Day is held on Saturday from 8 to 11 a.m. in the park on the Lake House lawn. It is co-sponsored by Evergreen Audubon, the local Mount Evans chapter of the Sierra Club, the Evergreen Garden Club, and the Evergreen Park and Recreation District.

  • Wins, not Hawkins’...

    She suffered a stress fracture in her right shin that forced her off the tennis courts just after Wimbledon in 2007. She broke the big toe on her left foot and later suffered a knee injury that initially was feared to be a torn meniscus in her right knee, but turned out not to be at all.
