  • New fire chief named in Indian Hills

    The Indian Hills fire department has a new chief, but recommendations from a consultant who found a “climate of distrust” in the agency — as well as outdated procedural guidelines — have yet to be put into place.

    Chief D.J. Himstedt, who had served the agency for the last three years, was not retained in a 7-6 vote of the membership in December. Garnering the seven votes was Emery Carson, who was chief from January 1999 through December 2003.

  • Birds have several methods for surviving cold

    January arrived like a lion, with cold, blustery weather. The TV weathermen are promising five days of

    Evergreen’s boys basketball team returned to the court following the winter break with a 52-42 loss to D’Evelyn in the opening round of the Jefferson County tournament.

  • Farmers squeak past Cougars

    Coming back from break, Evergreen’s girls basketball team found one key element of its game missing Friday against Wheat Ridge.

  • Founding Evergreen firefighter dies at 93 in Delta

    One of Evergreen’s original firefighters, Frank “Buster” Anderson Jr., died suddenly Jan. 1 at age 93 at Delta County Memorial Hospital. He had moved to Delta a little over a year ago to be closer to his son, James.

    Anderson was one of the 47 original founders of the Evergreen Volunteer Fire Department in 1948. He was a member of the department from 1948 to 1973 and served on the fire board from 1949 to 1978. We was a charter member of the Evergreen Elks.

    He worked for the Clear Creek County Road and Bridge Department and had retired about 26 years ago.

  • Congrove cleared in CBI investigation; 'murky' behavior troubles prosecutor

    A special prosecutor investigating allegations that Jeffco Commissioner Jim Congrove inappropriately authorized the use of county money to hire a friend to investigate a county critic and employee will not file charges in the case.

    But a couple of issues related to Congrove’s behavior remain “murky” and “clearly troubling,” according to the prosecutor’s statement, however.

    Congrove did not return a call seeking comment on the report.
