  • Kids get rodeo experience at Little Britches event

    Kids from seven states came to Evergreen last weekend for the Little Britches Rodeo, one of a series across the country for young people serious about rodeo events.

    The Evergreen, Clear Creek and Central City Elks lodges sponsored the rodeo, and this is the sixth year it has been at the Evergreen Rodeo grounds.

  • Will hard Left policies play in Colorado?

    By now you most assuredly have heard of the new face of the Democratic Party, the rising star of the hard Left, one Ms. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
    To say that she portends both an interesting challenge and/or opportunity for the Democratic Party would be quite the understatement. Indeed, liberal media outlets have been quite active in championing her Democratic Socialist platform, and promoting her support and enlistment of other Democratic Socialists for the upcoming mid-term elections.

  • Feel-good sports stories a welcome respite

    One of the best things about sports teams is the catalyst they can provide to bring people together. Eyes all over the world were focused on the World Cup in June and July.  
    While our team failed to make it into the 32-nation tournament, we watched people from all over the world show their national pride until France won the championship with a win over Croatia.

  • The 100-mile Poole

    For many athletes, endurance sports are the ultimate test of mental and physical strength. 

    Every year, Evergreen’s Jason Poole takes that mantra to a whole new level with ultramarathons, which are races of 50 miles or more. Last month, he braved the Hardrock 100 for the fifth time and finished it for the fifth time — a feat in and of itself.

  • Evergreen pickleball players excel at tournament

    Enthusiasm over pickleball has been exploding lately in Evergreen.

    At the end of the June, the 100-plus players who live and play in the Evergreen area proved just how popular it has become when nine players medaled in the Colorado Open pickleball tournament in Arvada.

    “Evergreen has some awesome players, which is so much fun,” said Linda Strauss, a 67-year-old Evergreen resident and nine-year competitor. “You don’t have to go down the hill (to play) if you don’t want to.”

  • Single-vehicle crash cleared after causing traffic delays on U.S. 285

    A single-vehicle accident on southbound U.S. 285 near Windy Point in Conifer has been cleared after causing significant traffic delays Friday afternoon.

  • Elect a Speaker of the House not speaker of a party

    Admittedly, my last recommendation to improve the working of our dysfunctional U.S. House of Representatives will be challenging. It will take a groundswell of voter support to amend the Constitution to provide longer terms and a one-term limitation for House members.
    A recent McLaughlin & Associates survey shows that 82 percent of voters support a Constitutional amendment to impose term limits. We must speak out for a specific initiative for this to gain some momentum.

  • A Rocky Mountain low for the N.Y. Times

    Perhaps by now you’ve had the unfortunate occasion to read or hear about the scurrilous piece of yellow journalism recently perpetrated upon the Republican candidate for governor, Walker Stapleton.
    In a N.Y. Times article titled “Family history haunts GOP candidate for governor in Colorado” by Julie Turkewitz (July 24), we have the perfect example of biased reporting of facts masquerading as news reporting. We have the perfect example of why Trump supporters regard with such disdain that bastion of Progressive fabrications, the N.Y. Times.

  • Sheriff's Calls

    Seriously

  • New name for EPRD’s special needs program

    The Evergreen Park & Recreation District’s special needs program has a new name: INSPIRE.
    INSPIRE is an acronym for:
    INcorporating opportunities for
    Social
    Physical and
    Inclusive
    Recreational
    Experiences.
    Rec district executive director Ellen O’Connor initiated the change because programs for people with special needs in other places have names that incorporate what the programs are about.
