  • Families soak up festivities at Health and Safety Fair

    Evergreen Fire/Rescue’s 21st annual Health and Safety Fair on Saturday was the perfect family outing: games, a bike rodeo and bounce houses for the kids, and demonstrations and learning opportunities for parents.

    Families rode in fire trucks and on a kids train, learned a bit about CPR and watched a helicopter land.

  • Two mountain lions euthanized after Bailey attack

    Two mountain lions, including one that seriously injured an 8-year-old Bailey boy, were euthanized on Aug. 22.

    Wildlife officers with Colorado Parks and Wildlife found the mountain lions after a homeowner noticed a goat was missing and then spotted two lions nearby. CPW said the homeowner reported seeing the lions “within a mile as the crow flies” from the original attack site in Bailey’s Burland Ranchettes subdivision.

  • Sheriff's Calls

    Sorry, wrong number

  • Greene: Will Colorado roll out the red carpet for the gray wolf?

    Ready or not, you could be approached by someone wielding a clipboard who wants to educate you about the Gray Wolves Initiative.

    The plan will require Colorado’s Parks and Wildlife Commission to develop and implement a plan to reintroduce gray wolves to the state’s Western Slope. In 2020, voters could have the opportunity to weigh in on whether they are willing to bring back the apex predator that has been absent from Colorado since 1940.

  • Romberg: Demanding efficient use of public money

    When I think about tax policy and the impact of taxes on regular people, I often think about a conversation I had with former state rep. Betty Neale when the General Assembly was considering legislation to require people to have more elements in their auto insurance policies.

  • Hicks: Sorry kids but summertime is over

    Thursday started probably like most other school days. Parents woke up at the crack of dawn, if not earlier, to get things in order and children followed suit — I’m sure some a bit grumpy, others happy as could be that another school year was upon us.

    Wait, what? It’s time for school already. But it’s only Aug. 15. How could this be?

    Wait, you’re telling me some kids have already been in school for at least a day, some even longer in other parts of the state or country. How can this be? It is still summertime.

  • Performers of all ages audition for Evergreen Talent Showcase

    Evergreen youth showed off their talents Saturday as they auditioned to be part of the Evergreen Talent Showcase.

    The talent show will be at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 14 at Evergreen High School, and auditions on Saturday were brisk. However, organizers continue to look for more acts of all ages to round out the 20 that will be selected.

    The showcase is a collaboration between Blue Spruce Kiwanis and Evergreen Players, and it’s been in the works for a few years, according to Kiwanian Beth Foster.

  • Evergreen Golf Course crew makes daily rounds to keep surroundings immaculate

    Neither elk nor bear nor flocks of geese deter the grounds crew at Evergreen Golf Course from its appointed rounds.

    The crew of nine — most of whom are retired — mow the lawns, fairways and greens in addition to other duties at the course on Upper Bear Creek Road starting at 5 a.m. nearly every day from April to October, and for them, seeing the wildlife first thing in the morning is part of the job’s allure.

  • Sculpture Evergreen commissioning a sculpture linked to Peggy Fleming to be placed at the Evergreen Lake House

    Evergreen Lake will have a piece of 1968 Olympic gold medalist Peggy Fleming figuratively speaking.

    Sculpture Evergreen has commissioned an eight-foot bronze sculpture that will be permanently placed near the Lake House depicting the skater, who was the only member of the skating team in Grenoble, France, to win a gold medal. Fleming has five U.S. titles and three world titles in addition to the Olympic gold medal.

  • Officials working to find way to open lake to watercraft

    Officials continue to discuss whether Evergreen Lake can be reopened to private watercraft.

    The Evergreen Metropolitan District and the Evergreen Park & Recreation District closed the lake to private boats, kayaks, paddle boards and the like last weekend for two reasons:

    • EPRD is concerned about safety issues because no one is there to monitor the vessels and make sure people are wearing life vests, which is a liability for those responsible for the lake.
