    By Tim Donohoo
    For the Courier
    Andrew Adamowski ran a race fit for a president on Aug. 24 in the Bergen Peak Half Marathon. Adamowski, 39, president of the board of directors for the Evergreen Park and Recreation District, won the inaugural half marathon, completing the grueling course from Buchanan Park Recreation Center across Elk Meadow and up to the top of Bergen Peak in 1 hour, 45 minutes and 57 seconds.

  • Danni, Cougars pick off Weld...

    Joe Danni wasn’t completely sure, but the Evergreen senior defensive back thought the Weld Central receiver had the ball. Then Danni ripped it out, turned and ran. Ninety yards later, he was in the opposite end zone. It was that kind of night for the Evergreen Cougars.

  • Dakota Ridge hits early, often...

    EVERGREEN — Both Dakota Ridge and Evergreen have new coaches in 2013. That, however, is where the similarities ended, at least on Aug. 22.
    One team — Evergreen — was coming off a commanding victory over Thornton in its opener. The other — Dakota Ridge — just squeezed out a win over Legend. But, in this one, it was Dakota Ridge from the start.

  • August brings blooming gentians

    It has been so cold the past week that it was difficult not to think about autumn. However, the weather forecasters have all agreed that this week will be better. We will return to summer temperatures, and then we will all be complaining about the heat.

  • Peterson, Cougars off to a fast...

    WESTMINSTER — Kyle Peterson called it a shaky start. His swing wasn’t there and a feeling overcame the Evergreen senior golfer that this might not be his day. Then there was a birdie, then another and two more to follow on the back nine. The 4A Jeffco League opener at Hyland Hills Golf Course turned around just that quickly.

  • Swallows among last to leave...

    There were two swallows flying around the yard last evening. It was just before dark, and I was pleased to see them for the usual residents of one of my bird boxes, a pair of violet-green swallows, did not return this year, and I have sorely missed them.
