Dancing together: Evergreen poms host clinic for

Take the Evergreen High School fight song, add in the school’s poms team and 12 middle school students, plus a dance routine, and you get a special performance at the boys soccer game on Sept. 30.

The experience is a win-win for both the squad and the middle school girls.

Dog park plans on hold

EPRD board wants to look at other locations, work through strategic plan

The Evergreen Park & Recreation District is putting the brakes on a proposal to put an off-leash dog park on 36 acres east of Fillius Park.

After a lengthy discussion and input from the public, the board on Sept. 27 decided to spend two months both looking at other potential locations and revisiting whether the district wants to move forward with creating a dog park as it embarks on a strategic-planning process.

Friends of Evergreen Dog Park, which has promised to implement the dog park’s management plan, will be consulted as the board’s subcommittee looks at other locations.

Members of the board had differing reasons for putting the dog park on hold:

• Some felt determining whether to create a dog park should be part of the district’s master-plan process.

• Others were concerned about how steep the parcel is and whether it would provide a high-quality experience for hikers and their dogs.

• Still others were concerned about the environmental impact and

Poms team co-captains Molly Armitage and Lizzie Rothwell noted that the clinic helps the high school team continue to preserve team spirit by persuading participants to

try out for the poms when they get to high school.

And it worked. Several middle schoolers said they will consider trying out for the team when they are older. Some explained that poms would be one of several sports to consider.

school poms practiced and performed as one unit.

Before they performed, Updike told the large team to feel confident and have fun.

Sloan Benson, a sixth grader at Evergreen Middle School, enjoyed the entire clinic, noting it was different from the gymnastics in which she is currently involved.

Ellowyn Wishon, a sixth grader at Evergreen Country Day School, said several years ago, she participated in the clinic the poms organize in the spring for elementary school students, and it was a lot of fun, so she thought she’d try it again.

Julia Short, also a sixth grader at Evergreen Country Day School, said she also did an elementary school clinic, plus she had heard how much fun being on the team is. Julia, who is a competitive dancer, wanted to see if she would like performing as a pom and if it would be fun.

And by the looks of the smiling faces and energy at practice, the whole group was enjoying the experience.

management plan works.

• Others suggested that a dog park could be created on the 36-acre parcel but only use five to 10 acres, with the rest providing other recreation opportunities.

The rec district began exploring the dog park after Jeffco Open Space offered up to $1 million to purchase the private property and up to $200,000 for construction costs. If the rec district moves forward, the area would be entirely fenced with a buffer area between the dog park and neighboring homes.

Evergreen hasn’t had an off-leash dog park for more than five years since Jeffco Open Space closed the dog park on Stagecoach Boulevard.

Friends of Evergreen Dog Park have worked continuously during that time to get Evergreen a dog park in a new location.

According to EPRD officials, Open Space isn’t tied into the property east of Fillius Park, which is why the district will explore other options.

Executive Director Cory Vander Veen suggested the district put the dog park on pause because the staff had a lot on its plate, and the district should consider first its strategic plan and what the community considers priorities.

“We are here to provide the best

this property was Evergreen’s last chance to get an off-leash dog park because there are few suitable large, affordable parcels available.

Neighbors’ and proponents’ comments

Neighbors near the property asked rec district officials to slow the process, saying they weren’t consulted and feel they didn’t have a voice as the property has been studied. They said while volunteers have pledged to clean dog waste, it would be hard to collect in the really steep areas, and there was concern about urine contaminating the soil and potentially groundwater.

Friends of Evergreen Dog Park were concerned about a rec district survey asking the public for their ideas regarding a dog park, noting the results weren’t valid.

The group also continued to advocate for the 36-acre site, saying there would be trails for those who wanted to hike to the top and those who preferred something less strenuous, and user fees would pay for the park’s operation, so there would be no burden to taxpayers.

Others continued to advocate for having a well-managed dog park in Evergreen, saying it was necessary for the dogs’ and their owners’ wellbeing.

“Pickleball and tennis players

have courts; swimmers have the pool; soccer, football and lacrosse have their fields; gymnastics have training facilities,” said Bill May, a former board member. “Perhaps dog owners also need a park.”

However, May was concerned that if creating a dog park would cost more than the $200,000 that Jeffco Open Space promised, the rec district would have to foot the bill, an expense the district was not prepared to cover.

Board members’ comments

“This would be a major ask for EPRD to pursue,” board President Don Rosenthal said. “If we undertake this, I want us to do a good or excellence job. I am not convinced we can do a good or excellent job.

When we work on the strategic plan, we should put the dog park into it and see how it plays out.”

Board member Monty Estis agreed. “To me, this is as big as a lot of projects that will be considered in the strategic plan.”

Board member Peter Eggers said the district needed to test the management model to make sure usage could be controlled.

“I totally believe that community has spoken,” board member Betsy Hays said. “They are saying they would like a dog park in our community. Is (the 36-acre parcel) the right place? I don’t know. I think what we are hearing is a smaller, flatter spot. I think the management plan is awesome.”

Sculpture Evergreen, CAE to combine forces

Organizations will merge Jan. 1

Sculpture Evergreen and Center for the Arts Evergreen are merging.

Beginning Jan. 1, Center for the Arts Evergreen, which offers art classes, gallery exhibits and much more, will house Sculpture Evergreen, which hosts the yearly Sculpture Walk and maintains the permanent sculpture collection throughout Evergreen. The Sculpture Walk will continue, and CAE will maintain the 44 permanent sculptures in the collection.

“Center for the Arts Evergreen has been a focal point for art in Evergreen and doing an amazing job,” Tricia Rosenthal, Sculpture Evergreen’s president, told about 80 people at the annual fundraiser on Sept. 28. “We have been on similar paths for many years. We are both growing, both strong, both dedicated to making art an important part of people’s lives. Why not combine the two?”

She said that’s why the fundraiser was called “Together we bring sculpture to life” — to honor both Sculpture Evergreen’s and Center for the Arts Evergreen’s commitment to three-dimensional art. This spring, CAE will start building a wing onto its gallery for ceramics and sculpture and will create a sculpture garden.

Discussions about the two non-

profits merging have been going on for years, Lisa Nierenberg, CAE’s executive director, said.

“We want Sculpture Evergreen to stay alive and well,” she explained. “We are going to keep the legacy alive. What this volunteer organization has done in 25 years is unbelievable. As of Jan. 1, we will be one big happy family.”

Center for the Arts Evergreen was started in 1974, and its gallery was in a building next to the Buchanan Park Recreation Center until 2017, when the organization purchased and moved into the former Bergen Park Church. It has six employees.

Sculpture Evergreen was incorporated in November 1994 as Art for the Mountain Community to place sculptures in public places in the mountain area. The Sculpture Walk started in 1999, and the all-volunteer organization changed its name in 2014.

Rosenthal said in an interview that even though the details have not been finalized, an ongoing sculpture committee made up of most of the Sculpture Evergreen board will work with the CAE staff on events and displays. A sculpture committee will help with the Sculpture Walk.

Rosenthal and Joe Glasmire, Sculpture Evergreen’s vice president, now serve on the CAE board to help provide continuity.

Rosenthal noted that Sculpture Evergreen’s experience combined with CAE’s energy and full-time staff will be a win-win.

Nierenberg said in an interview that the merger means the arts

RTD Park-n-Ride at El Rancho should remain open

RTD closed the El Rancho Park-n-Ride and bus stops on Aug. 21 because of “low ridership.” This was the public-facing excuse, but it was not the motivation for this closure. Since the beginning of the pandemic, ridership has plummeted system-wide, including at all five PnR-associated stops on the EV bus route. Both pre- and post-pandemic, total average weekday ridership at El Rancho has consistently ranked third among these, and has never been zero.

Unlike when stops are typically decommissioned, there was no timely and meaningful public notification or public input process regarding the El Rancho facility. Internal RTD memorandum indicate that the decision to abandon the El Rancho PnR and stops was made not in June 2022, but in September 2021. The decommissioning task force and timeline had already been outlined by February of this year.

The entire decision to close the El Rancho PnR was in reaction to a proposal by one developer whose ambition is to acquire the CDOT-owned land between Highway 74 and I-70. His proposal would demolish the facilities already built there by taxpayers and used by the community, replacing them with private commercial development. The inferior public transportation facilities he

proposed as “replacements” did not satisfy RTD’s requirements. Rather than pushing back, RTD chose to abandon its lease altogether.

Public money originally built this gradeseparated, accessible, lighted and conveniently located PnR. It has been well maintained for nearly 30 years, including a $45,000 renovation of the stairway in 2018. Evergreen’s own contribution to RTD tax revenue has grown year over year, even during the pandemic, and for the last three years has exceeded $1 million annually. The commercial district at El Rancho contributes significantly to this total.

A park-n-ride and public transit option at El Rancho are specifically referenced in the Evergreen Area Plan of the Jefferson County Comprehensive Master Plan. This PnR, sited on agency-owned land, is already strategically located adjacent to the main intersection. There is no pedestrian route connecting El Rancho to the next-nearest stop at Bergen Park, two miles away. Jefferson County affordable housing (VistaElRancho) was in part sited at El Rancho because of the presence of the bus route.

El Rancho is at the northern end of the Evergreen RTD Flex Ride service area, where this PnR is the only public parking within the entire commercial district at El Rancho. Apart from bus

ridership, this lot is well used for ridesharing both east and west on I-70 (RTD’s own data indicate that it has historically averaged at least half full) and as a jumping-off point for the CDOTbuilt Genesee Bike Path.

This PnR serves the purpose for which it was intended: facilitating connections, a core principle of both CDOT and RTD transportation resource planning. Despite that the aforementioned development proposal has yet to even be accepted for review by Jefferson County, and that there has been no public comment process associated with the proposed demolition of taxpayer-funded community assets on this agency-owned land, RTD now plans to begin disassembling the superficial infrastructure and barricading the lot as soon as October.

This history of planning, public investment, and demonstrated community support for transportation alternatives could soon be sacrificed as both a symbolic and literal disconnection between the publicly-funded RTD and the patrons it claims to serve. CDOT still owns the land. Rather than selling it for development, it should maintain this PnR for the benefit of the community that built and uses it still.

Think your vote doesn’t matter? Think again.

Coloradans voted in record numbers in 2020 – 3,303,265 ballots were cast, an amazing turnout of 87 percent. People think big national elections are important, and they are, but what many don’t realize is that the decisions most likely to impact their daily lives are made at the local and state level by people elected in mid-term elections like the one this year.

What’s more, we’re still reeling from the tumultuous 2020 election and its continuing aftermath, and that may be giving you pause about voting again this year. In fact, are you using one of these excuses?


A Vote for Lesley Dahlkemper is a vote for local businesses

“Politics is too polarized – I want nothing to do with it!” One reason parties are moving to the extremes is because the small number of voters who hold those extreme positions are more likely to vote than moderates. So, the fewer people who vote, the more polarized politics becomes. Higher voter turnout (that means you) in primaries and midterm elections broadens representation and dilutes the influence of extremists.

“My vote isn’t secure.” The Justice Department, the Department of Homeland Security, the FBI and, closer to home, the Colorado State Department and the

Ballots will be mailed soon, so do your homework

The election season that seems to have gone on forever is about to conclude. I got my Blue Book last week, the county’s Gray Book will be arriving soon, and the county clerk starts mailing ballots Oct. 17.

Prepare yourself: It’s going to be a very long one.

Not only are all the statewide offices on the ballot, so are seven countywide positions. Add to that eight state judges, 11 judges in our First Judicial District, 11 statewide ballot measures, and three referred by the Jefferson County commissioners.

Even for a political and policy wonk like me, it’s a bit overwhelming. However, we have three weeks to vote, so take the time to educate yourself and vote all the way to the end, where you will find some of the races and ballot measures that will affect you the most.

Top among them is Jeffco’s Question 1A, which would exclude some fees and state grants — not property taxes — from the TABOR cap, meaning the county could keep the money and not have to refund it to taxpayers. Treasurer Jerry DiTullio tells me he is about to mail $17.5 million in checks to Jeffco residents because the revenue the county received last year was more than it is allowed by TABOR to keep.

Meanwhile the county has been considering possible service cuts. Says Commissioner Lesley Dahlkemper: “Fortunately, the money available to us through the

American Rescue Plan Act provides relief for 2023, but budget challenges remain into the future.”

The Jeffco League of Women Voters writes in its letter of support for 1A: “We believe that Article X, Section 20 of the Colorado Constitution, (TABOR), undermines the philosophy of representative government and imposes severe restrictions that prevent an equitable and flexible system of taxation, and reduces the ability of elected officials to provide adequate funding for schools, highways, public safety and necessary social programs, even in times of economic prosperity.” I urge you to vote Yes on Question 1A.

The other county questions, 1B and 1C, would permit marijuana manufacturing and sales in the unincorporated part of the county, and allow the commissioners to impose a tax on these sales. Pot shops in Evergreen? You decide.

You’re going to have to decide on a lot of other issues, too. Should all public school children receive free lunches? Should a portion of state income taxes be dedicated to increasing the supply of affordable housing? Should grocery stores be able to sell wine? Should the state income tax rate be reduced again?

I strongly urge you to reject this one, Proposition 121. Voters passed Proposition 116 just two years ago, reducing the flat tax rate for individual and corporate incomes from 4.63% to 4.55%. This would reduce it again to 4.40%, cutting

state revenue by hundreds of millions of dollars. Over half the benefit would go to those with incomes over $1 million. It would leave less money for K-12 and higher education, for courts and prisons, for public health and human services, and for highway maintenance.

Coloradans are not over-taxed. According to Ballotpedia, Colorado has the lowest per-capita tax collections of any adjacent state, at about 80% of the national average. One of the arguments for cutting taxes is that “Families and businesses are better off when they can keep more of their own money.” The fact is that families and businesses alone cannot provide a free education to all children, cannot fight crime, cannot deal with the opioid epidemic, cannot run elections and cannot protect our public lands. Taxes are the price we pay for civilization.

It is up to us to make sure that our elected representatives are spending our money wisely. If you don’t have time to communicate with them or attend budget hearings, at least stay informed. Good sources of unbiased information are and Above all, make the time, do your part for democracy, and vote your entire ballot.

Support the candidate that honors their commitments

“It’s not a job, it’s a privilege” is Kathi Meyer’s campaign slogan as she runs for Routt County Commissioner this year. Meyer is right that when people run for public office, they are asking voters for the privilege of serving us.

When we elect officials to these offices, we expect them to honor their implied commitment to us to serve their entire terms and not to leave early for what they consider to be better jobs. And yet, that’s what former Jefferson County Commissioner Don Rosier did when he resigned from the Board of County Commissioners with roughly a year left on his term to take a job with the Sterling Ranch Community Authority in Douglas County.

Even though Rosier failed to finish his previous term as county commissioner, he’s now back on our ballots, running for commissioner again. His campaign website touts his previous experience but doesn’t mention the fact that he failed to honor the commitment he made when we gave him the privilege of serving as a county commissioner previously. It pro-

vides no explanation of why we should expect that he has any more commitment to Jefferson County taxpayers now than when he resigned from the very same position less than five years ago.

The fact that Rosier walked away from Jefferson County with a year left in his term should give voters pause about his attempt to reclaim the position now. Regardless of who he would be running against, we should be wary of giving him the privilege of serving us again when he didn’t honor us with a full term of service. The fact that his opponent, current Commissioner Lesley Dahlkemper, has served us exemplarily for the last four years and is working on a variety of important issues that she wants to continue to pursue makes it even more obvious that he should not be elected.

As a County Commissioner, Dahlkemper has focused her efforts on effectively managing the county during difficult pandemic times. Her work to continue to emphasize the important role of public safety and open space while making

sure county officials manage resources, including COVID relief funds from the Federal government, effectively. She’s championed new efforts related to wildfire readiness, affordable housing and opioids including creating and chairing the Wildfire Risk Reduction Task Force. Based on her record as a County Commissioner, she can make a very strong case that she’s earned the right and privilege to serve us for a second term.

Don Rosier chose to walk away from the privilege of serving us as a county commissioner to take a different job less than five years ago. It’s not reasonable for him to ask us to grant him that honor again in 2022.

My election endorsements

for candidates and ballot initiatives take up a lot of words. While I will make explicit recommendations for all offices up in Jefferson County this year, I think it is important to hear about the quality of candidates up for election. It is important now to realize whether or not someone

running for office is a good person. Maybe six years ago I first met Heidi Ganahl in person at the Automobile Dealers Building. It was a meet the candidates function and we talked only for a half-hour or so. But Heidi impressed me greatly as a woman of both character and sub-

stance. Her character was exhibited by the way she rose to the challenge of life’s adversities that are shown at times. Her substance beneath her character enabled her to conquer life’s challenges successfully. I was greatly impressed by her as a person in that conversation and thought that she deserved to be on the CU Board of Regents. That ambition came true and electing Heidi as our next Governor will put a capable and competent woman in a place where she can accomplish a lot of good for Colorado.

Another good and capable person on the ballot this fall is Jeffco’s own Lang Sias. He is running to be State Treasurer and electing him would put an accomplished man in a key position. Like Heidi Ganahl, I’ve had some conversations with Lang Sias and he is an excellent man of sterling character who would make a spectacular State Treasurer.

Another Jeffco resident, Pam Anderson, is running for Secretary of State. She is a thoroughly compe-

Jefferson County has three Con



are most important to you and then find out where the candidates stand.

“I don’t like either candidate.”

How do you know? The beauty of local elections is that it is possible to hear candidates in person and

gressional districts, CD-2, CD-6 and CD-7. I’ve known Marshall Dawson the Republican nominee in CD-2 for a few years now. He is an excel lent man that would make a good Congressman. Steve Monahan in CD-6 and Erik Aadland in CD-7. I’m voting for Molly Lamar for CD-6 representative to the State Board of Education. I’m voting for Joe O’Dea in the contest for the U.S. Senate.

In Jefferson County we have some wonderful local candidates who are seeking election. Chief among them are a wonderful gentleman,

perhaps even meet them. Contrary to popular belief, most people run for office out of a desire to serve and once you get to know them, you may like them better than you expect.

And now, the worst excuse of all.

“The results are a foregone con clusion and my vote won’t make a difference.” Actually, new districts based on the 2020 census were drawn in Colorado by independent

State Rep Colin Larson of Littleton, who needs to be reelected in House District 25. Dan Montoya in House District 28 is a newcomer who deserves to be elected as Jaylen Mos queria in House District 38. Other candidates that you can vote for are Fred Clifford in House District 23, Bill Patterson in House District 24, Lynn Emrick in House District 27, Vanessa DeMott in House District 29, Russ Carter in House District 30, Mark Baisley in Senate District 4, Tim Walsh in Senate District 20 and Colby Dreschel in Senate District 22.

commissions, which means that many districts are more competi tive than ever before. The Colorado Sun recently reported that there are seven particularly competitive state senate districts, and that is enough to determine which party controls the chamber. In other words, results are anything but a foregone conclu sion and your vote can sway the outcome.

For local offices, I urge a vote for Don Rosier for County Commission er, Libby Szabo for County Assessor, Vicki Pyne for County Clerk and Re corder. For the best manner to com bat crime I urge a vote for Ed Brady for Jeffco Sheriff. Former Treasurer Faye Griffin should be elected again to her old job. Bob Hennessey should be reelected County Surveyor and Matt Archuleta should be elected County Coroner.

Joe Webb is the former chairman of the Jeffco Republican party.

Voting is one of the most impor tant ways to exercise your opinion and help shape the community you want to live in. Your voice matters.

Lisa Cutter represents District 25 in the Colorado State House of Rep resentatives and is a candidate for Senate District 20.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month provides reminder to get preventive screening

According to the Centers for Disease Control, breast cancer is the second most common cancer among women in the United States. Each year in the U.S., about 264,000 cases of breast cancer are diagnosed in women and about 2,400 in men.

Although deaths from breast cancer have declined over time, breast cancer is still the second leading cause of cancer death among women overall. In addition, breast cancer is the leading cause of cancer death among Hispanic women and Black women die from breast cancer at a

higher rate than white women.

The month of October is recognized as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, a health observance that reminds us to be aware of the symptoms and risk factors for breast cancer as well as steps we can take to improve our health and possibly help lower the risk of getting breast cancer or finding it early when it may be easier to treat. Mammograms, x-rays of the breast, are especially important because they may detect breast cancer when there are no apparent symptoms. When symptoms of breast cancer develop they may include:

New lump in breast or underarm


Changes in size or shape of breast

Thickening or swelling in parts of the breast

Pulling in of the nipple or pain in the nipple area

Pain in any area of the breast

Nipple discharge other than breast milk, including blood Irritation or dimpling of breast skin

Redness or flakiness in nipple area or breast

Screening recommendations vary between experts, but for women at average risk for breast cancer the United States Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF)recommends biennial screening mammography

from age 50 to 74 years. Before age 50, the USPSTF states the decision to start screening mammography should be an individual one. Women who place a higher value on the potential benefits of screening over potential harm may choose to start biennial screening between 40 to 49 years of age. Women with certain risk factors for breast cancer may need to start screening at an earlier age and may need more frequent screening.

Screenings can find cancer before symptoms begin. Therefore, getting screened is important even for

October 6, 202214 Canyon Courier


those who feel fine. It is a good idea to talk with a doctor about potential risk factors and various types of screenings including mammograms.

There are two types of mammograms: a standard two-dimensional (2-D) image where each breast is compressed from two different angles (top to bottom and side to side), and a three-dimensional (3-D) image, where the machine takes several low-dose x-rays, moving in an arc direction around the breast. While 3-D mammograms are increasing in popularity, it may not be available in all areas.

The American Cancer Society provides several steps to prepare for

a mammogram, such as avoiding deodorants, antiperspirants, powders, lotions, creams and perfumes under the arm or breasts on exam day. Some of these products can show up as white spots on the x-rays.

Find a Health Center is a helpful tool for finding local mammography centers. Check to see that the imaging facility you choose is certified and accepts your insurance. Many organizations offer free mammograms and breast screenings.

The health and medical professionals at Optum Colorado advise talking with your doctor to discuss health history, any symptoms you may be experiencing, or preventive screenings. Let Breast Cancer Awareness Month be a reminder to follow the suggestions here for health and wellbeing.

Evergreen softball’s remarkable run after rough 1-9 start

LAKEWOOD — It might have appeared improbable four weeks ago that Evergreen would be in contention for the Class 4A Jeffco League softball title.

However, that is precisely where the Cougars found themselves with one league game remaining.

Evergreen (11-11, 6-1 in 4A Jeffco) extended its winning streak to seven games Sept. 27 with a 11-4 conference victory on the road against Green Mountain.

“I never doubted these girls,” said Evergreen first-year coach Steve Nuccio despite his team starting with a 1-9 record this season. “I think they are more than capable.”

The Cougars were capable of winning the school’s first softball league title since 2005. Evergreen, Conifer and Golden were all tie atop the conference with 6-1 league records heading in to the final league games scheduled for Monday, Oct. 3, after press deadline.

Conifer could win the league title with a win over Golden. However, a Golden win and Evergreen defeating D’Evelyn on Oct. 3 would give the Cougars the conference title. Golden and D’Evelyn winning would give the Demons the league title.

“Going into those last two games there is going to be pressure,”

Evergreen junior Logan Gaber said before the Cougars lost to Conifer on Saturday, Oct. 1. “It’s a rival with Conifer and then one of the other top teams in the league with D’Evelyn. They are going to be huge for us, but I believe we are all in this together and ready to take it.”

Gaber played a big role in keep-

ing the Cougars on track to win the league title against an upset-minded Green Mountain squad. The Rams (9-10-1, 2-5) held a 4-3 lead after five innings.

Evergreen quickly regained the lead in the top of the sixth inning with a lead-off single by senior Sidney Phillips that was followed up with a 2-run home run by Gaber.

“I hadn’t really had great at-bats,” Gaber said of her home run. “I was looking for my pitch and they gave it to me. I knew it was my time.”

Sophomore Ruby Haver had an RBI double later in the inning to extend the lead to 6-4. It was a remarkable offensive turnover for the Cougars after Green Mountain junior pitcher Erin Ransom retired Evergreen in order in the first three innings.

“Some games we’ve had troubles starting,” Gaber admitted. “But we usually pick it up. We get in a groove. Play small ball can get our momentum going.”

Evergreen scratched out a pair of runs in the fourth inning with the first three Cougars reaching base on bunts. A few Ram errors allowed Evergreen to tie things up 2-2.

“We are a versatile team. We can all bunt. We can all go long,” Phillips said. “We have a strong line-up even if we have a hard time the first time around. We can turn the page and turn it around.”

Phillips was the headliner in Evergreen’s 5-run top of the seventh inning. She ripped a 2-run home run over the fence to give the Cougars a commanding 8-4 lead. Evergreen would tack on three more runs to make the final score 11-4.

Junior Olivia Kingery picked up the victory on the mound after tak-

ing over for Gaber in the circle.

“The execution was flawless,” Nuccio said of the Cougars’ turning it around at the plate and in the field after falling behind 4-3 through five innings. “If we don’t execute, we don’t get back into that ballgame.”

Evergreen — suits just 10 players and doesn’t have a JV team this season — has become a tight-knit family this season after rebounding from the tough start.

“I love this group of girls,” Phillips said. “We work hard. We work as a family. We are strong. It’s tough

to have low numbers, but we are a strong group.”

Green Mountain sophomore Ashlynn Reilly had a big RBI double and then Reilly scored on a deep sacrifice fly by Ransom in the bottom of the fifth inning that gave the Rams a 4-3 lead. However, Kingery retired nine of the final 11 batters she faced to give Evergreen the win.

Cougar softball team shows grit

Team of 10 in contention to be Je co 4A league champs

The story of this year’s Evergreen softball game is, as a parent put it, one of underdogs, grit, determination, leadership and ultimately a team that joined together after a rocky start.

With first-year head coach Steve Nuccio at the helm, and with a roster of 10 players, just enough to field a team, they have had a fun and remarkable season to date.

The Cougars had a rocky start at 1-9, with several losses to talented 5A schools. As of Oct. 1, they are 11-11, and 6-1 in 4A league play, beating Alameda and Green Mountain last week. They lost to Conifer 11-5 on Oct. 1 but still have a chance at the conference championship, and they hope to reach regionals and eventually state.

“I just think that we sort of went into this feeling we have nothing to lose,” junior pitcher and first baseman Logan Gaber explained. “We have just said, ‘Let’s just try for it. If it doesn’t happen, that’s OK.’ Now that we are in reach of winning league, I think we’re yearning to go undefeated, but we can’t get overconfident.”

Nuccio said the previous coach

scheduled several games against 5A teams to start the season, and the team was overwhelmed.

“It was really challenging and hard to keep momentum,” Nuccio said. “We knew we had talent, and the girls were capable of playing well and performing well. I told them that it’s going to work as along we’re having fun and working hard at practice. Wins will be the byproduct of practices.”

Nuccio said his coaching strategy has been morphing after watching other coaches beat their players down rather than lifting them up.

“We’re not going to do that,” he explained. “We tell them what we’re doing, why we’re doing it, why they move up or down the lineup. They have really responded well to open communication and understanding their role on the team.”

Girls have played different positions depending on the team’s needs and who is available for games.

“We’re communicating with the girls more than I ever have and more they have ever experienced,” Nuccio noted. “We tell them what we need and why.”

His players agree, noting that the communication has helped them focus on playing well and winning.

“We didn’t start off that great, but (Nuccio) has helped us fine-tune and find our place on the team and the role we should be executing,” Gaber said.

Gaber, who has been playing since she was 5, said this season, she’s tried her hand at shortstop, midfield

Winston and Virginia Slimms

CONIFER – It was after midnight, and deputies on route to the disturbance were informed by 911 dispatchers that the reporting party’s wife had assaulted him with smoking materials. On scene, officers spoke with the not-visibly-scorched husband, who described in dramatic detail how he’d been laying comfortably abed when The Missus hurled a small plastic ashtray and a lit cigarette at his person, causing him no physical discomfort and very little of the emotional kind. Not surprisingly, officers asked Hubby to clarify the purpose of his call. His wife had been two hours late getting home from work that evening, Hubby explained, and she started ragging on him the moment she walked in the door. A peaceable man, he’d retreated to the bedroom. Not finished with him, she’d followed him in and hurled the tray and Tiparilloat his chest. He asked her to leave the bedroom, then locked the door behind her. She let herself back in using her own key and hurled flaming rhetoric at his head. He warned her that he’d call the cops if she didn’t get out of his face. She didn’t, and he made good on the threat. In her own defense, Missus told deputies she’d merely “turned suddenly” and the ashtray “slipped out of her hands” when she did. Seeing as how Hubby

wasn’t damaged by the five-ounce butt-tray, and since Missus appeared much more relaxed than previously described, officers suggested that Hubby “keep a safe distance” from Missus until morning.

No love lost

EVERGREEN – Her heartless neighbor had just spoiled her sunny morning by hurling a putrid bouquet of hostility and abuse at her chamber door, a quaking Rose told the 911 dispatcher, and there he remained, twisting his mustache and oozing menace like the last half-nibbled cordial in a two-pound variety box. Deputies flew to her aid, but her neighbor, Mr. Villen, had already slunk away to his next-door lair. Revived with soothing words and smelling salts, Rose explained that she owns three tender and loving dogs who, when seized by overweening passion, have been known to treat the invisible fence around the yard like it isn’t even there. That morning, two of those good-hearted hounds found their way into Villen’s yard, and Villen, with lightning in his eyes and thunder upon his brow, brought them back, along with a lurid, long and loud soliloquy intended more to distress than impress. Tired of getting yelled at, Rose had moved to close the door.

“I’m not done talking to you yet!” Vil-

lenroared, forcefully smiting the door with an open hand. Rose announced she was calling the police, and Villen beat a muttering retreat. Rose pleaded with officers to be gentle with the rogue, as she had already sold her estate and was loathe to leave hard feelings behind when she blew town. The deputies paid a call on Villen, who grandly, smilingly and repeatedly bade them to enter and take their ease, and was clearly incensed when they remained standing at the door. “I guess that’s just not part of their program,” he observed to Lady Villen. Unable to win the officers’ favor by flirtation, he sought to buffalo them with deposition, launching into a tortured recounting of his harrowing history with the dogs and enumerating Rose’s many deficiencies as a petowner and neighbor. Hardening their hearts, the deputies asked Villen if he’d smacked the door when Rose tried to close it. Well, yeah, he admitted, but she’d provoked him by not thanking him for bringing back the dogs. The deputies explained that his actions met the definition of criminal trespass, and that if he knew what was good for him he’d give Rose an extra wide berth forever after. Villen complained that the officers weren’t properly sympathetic to his sufferings, but agreed to let Rose ramble in peace.

Moving violation

EVERGREEN – Dispatched to settle a neighbor dispute on the afternoon of Sep. 9, deputies could have made the drive in their sleep. Joan and Bette have been butting heads over property lines for ages, and neither is shy about calling the cops. This time around, Joan charged Bette with moving her trash can not once, but twice, both times without just cause or permission. Bette insisted she’d moved Joan’s trash can the first time so she could get her car out of the driveway, and moved it a second time

“as a courteous gesture.” Since both women had surveillance apparatus aimed at the scene of the crime, officers took full advantage of that objective evidence in reaching their decision. Bette’s first move was justified, they said, but the second one was clearly intended to “antagonize,” and they issued Bette a summons for second degree criminal tampering. “She gets away with everything!” Bette beefed.

Sheriff’s Calls is intended as a humorous take on some of the incident call records of the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office for the mountain communities. Names and identifying details have been changed. All individuals are innocent until proven guilty.

To say it takes a village to run a special district like Evergreen would be an understatement! Today, there are 23,000 people residing within its boundaries, which covers approximately 50,000 acres of land. The District primarily serves the communities of Evergreen, Bergen Park, Indian Hills, Kittredge, and Marshdale. However, one could argue that there are just as many visitors as residents. The high visitor attraction is due to 230 miles of remarkably scenic hiking and biking trails located within Evergreen’s boundaries.

Park and recreation opportunities in Evergreen have evolved dramatically over the years. In January 1969, Evergreen Park and Recreation District (EPRD) was originally formed and its stated purpose was “to provide recreational opportunities to its residents and to construct a community center with a swimming pool.” Over 50 years later, EPRD has two indoor facilities with pools, along with a competitive sized Gymnastics gym, a 41-foot climbing pinnacle, a Lake House and countless outdoor places to explore! From custodians to front desk staff and everything in between, EPRD would never have been able to accomplish its tremendous growth without the hard work and commitment of the people who pushed the work forward.

Today, EPRD employs approximately 33 full-time employees, 180 hourly/seasonal staff and hundreds

of community volunteers. The people who work in Park and Recreation don’t end up within the field by mistake. It is a career motivated by passionate people. Passion to teach and make a difference in someone’s life. Passion to lead others and be a part of a team. Passion for the outdoors and prioritizing your health. If you share these values, then please look no further than the many employment opportunities, with competitive wages and free gym memberships, that are available now at EPRD! #ElevateYourCareer

Guanella Pass Winter Closure

As scheduled in the past, the county will close Guanella Pass Road at the Naylor Lake intersection, approximately 0.8 mile north of the Guanella Pass summit on or about Monday, November 28, 2022, weather permitting.

To provide winter maintenance on the Guanella Pass Road is very costly for Clear Creek and Park Counties and requires unavailable resources. We will maintain Guanella Pass Road on a first day service to Cabin Creek Hydroelectric Plant and then on a second/third day basis to the Naylor Lake intersection after a snowfall

It is our hope the Guanella Pass Road will reopen on or about Friday, May 26, 2023.

Heidi Ganahl, Jared Polis debate EVs, taxes and more

In the first debate between Gov. Jared Polis and his Republican challenger, Heidi Ganahl, the most spirited exchange was about automobiles — and specifically, the ones the candidates drive.

It began as Ganahl attacked Polis’ environmental policies, part of a much broader argument over their visions for Colorado’s future.

“Don’t expect a single mom of three working two jobs to buy (an all-electric) Tesla or rely solely on public transportation,” she said of Polis’ plans to decarbonize the state’s economy in the decades ahead. “It’s too far, too fast.”

Polis shot back: “Well, I thought you drive a Tesla, don’t you?”

Ganahl said her family has three cars, including a “Chevy Express conversion van with 120,000 miles on it.”

Polis responded: “Not everybody can afford a Tesla, like my opponent.”

Ganahl said: “Well, you can.”

In fact, they both can. It was an unusual bit of social showmanship from two candidates who are among the wealthiest people in Colorado. Polis has made hundreds of millions of dollars selling tech businesses, while Ganahl sold her own doggy day care franchise for more than $17 million.

The automotive theater continued as the governor proclaimed that, despite his goal of getting 940,000 electric vehicles on the state’s roads by 2030, he drives “an internal combustion engine. I think that’s all you need to know,” a line which drew laughs.

(Polis has a Ford Escape but may have previously owned an EV, according to a campaign spokeswoman, and is driven around for official duties in a Chevy Suburban.)

Nathaniel Minor/CPR NewsRepublican candidate for governor

Heidi Ganahl, flanked by supporters, released her transportation plan in Denver on Thursday, Sept. 15, 2022.

A minute later, Ganahl revived the topic with an explanation for the Tesla: “I thought, before I ran, ‘I’m gonna get an electric car so I can live it, and feel it, and see what it’s like.’”

Her conclusion: Electric vehicles aren’t feasible for low-income families, and Polis, she added, should “walk the talk” by buying an electric car.

The incumbent’s response? “Lend me yours … I’ll just borrow yours.”

The unusual exchange consumed a few minutes of a debate that stretched more than an hour, hosted by the Greater Pueblo Chamber of Commerce at CSU-Pueblo, with sponsorship from Black Hills Energy.

This head-to-head may set the template for the final weeks of the election. Ganahl blamed Polis for high energy costs, bank robberies, rising cocaine and fentanyl use, the auto theft rate and more, and called his COVID-19 response overreaching and underhanded.

She accused Polis of closing schools and churches while “keeping pot shops open.” He contended that Colorado was ahead of many other states in reopening.

“He’s grown the size of government,” Ganahl said. “He’s added taxes, fees, new social programs. Small business owners can’t keep up with all the programs they’re supposed to

implement and pay for. There’s only so much money in the bucket.”

Ganahl reiterated her campaign promise to eliminate the income tax, which brings in more than $13 billion a year to the state and supplies more than half of the general fund. She also wants to cut the gas tax in half.

Meanwhile, Polis tried to discredit her tax-slashing plans as unrealistic and dangerous. He pointed out that the Colorado State Patrol and other services are currently funded by those taxes.

“Her gas tax plan (will) cut funding in half for the State Patrol,” he said, while touting his own public safety spending law. “Her income tax plan (will) defund Corrections, let criminals out on the street.”

Ganahl dismissed the criticism, saying she would never cut funds to law enforcement. She has said that she would instead cut spending elsewhere: “We’re going to shrink the size of government by 10 percent a year by doing a hiring freeze and addressing vacancy funds,” she said, adding that she would hire a private auditor to find fraud and waste.

“We have a spending problem here in Colorado, not a revenue problem,” she said.

Cutting more than $13 billion from the budget would require finding savings equal to the state’s current general fund spending on education, health care, human services and corrections, combined.

Polis said that his administration has saved people money with big new laws on health insurance, full-day kindergarten and limited free preschool. Free early childhood education in particular, he said, saves hundreds of dollars per month for families with young children.

Ganahl said she “fully supports pre-K care,” but said that she’d rather entrust it to private industry, charities and churches. She also would “go all in” on school choice, allowing families to take public funding to the school of their choice.

On criminal justice, Ganahl criti-

cized Polis for reducing the sentence of Rogel Lazaro Aguilera-Mederos, the truck driver at fault in a crash that killed four people on I-70, from 110 years to a decade. (Ganahl said the governor at least should have waited before acting, a criticism echoed by the district attorney in the case.)

Ganahl also pointed out, among other criticisms, that on Polis’ watch, state lawmakers abolished the death penalty.

And in some of her harshest attacks of the night, she accused Polis of signing a law that she said killed the daughter of a woman named Mickey she met on the campaign trail. The policy in question made possession of small amounts of some drugs, including fentanyl, a misdemeanor instead of a felony.

“I hope you will give them an answer and give Mickey an answer,” she said. Ganahl didn’t detail the connection between the death of the person’s daughter and the 2019 drug reform law. Polis responded: “Fentanyl has been, is and will be illegal in the state of Colorado, as long as I am your governor.” He pointed to a law passed this year that reinstated felony possession charges for a gram or more of fentanyl, as well as adding funding for treatment.

The candidates also touched on the issue of water. Polis challenged Ganahl to take a stand against a proposal that had aimed to transport water from the San Luis Valley to Douglas County, where Ganahl lives.

“Even Congresswoman (Lauren) Boebert joined me in opposition to this buy-and-dry plan that would destroy the ag economy of the San Luis Valley,” he said.

Ganahl didn’t take up the topic, but said she wants to build more water storage — also a stated priority for Polis — and promised a firm stance on Colorado River negotiations.

“We’ll neutralize any negotiations on the Colorado River Compact. We only stand to lose in that, and we’ll balance property rights with community rights,” Ganahl said.

And, of course, when it came to energy, they talked about more than just Teslas. Ganahl said Colorado should keep supporting in-state oil drillers, since they’re more efficient than drillers elsewhere.

“The stakes are so high here, and again, we produce the cleanest energy on the planet right here in Colorado. Let’s get them back to work,” she said. (Colorado’s drilling rig count has shrunk by more than two-thirds while Polis has been in office. That mirrors the trends seen nationwide, including in conservative states like Texas, amid fluctuating oil prices during the pandemic.)

As the debate closed, Polis tried to pin Ganahl as an extremist, narrowing in on her choice of Danny Moore as her running mate. Moore had questioned the 2020 election results on Facebook, reportedly referring in one post to “the Democrat steal.”

“She chose an election denier,” he said.

Ganahl defended Moore, who is a U.S. Navy veteran and an entrepreneur.

“Danny’s made it very clear. He respects Joe Biden and he’s his commander in chief, as have I, and Danny’s actually an incredible person,” she said.

In her final statement, Ganahl warned of a dark future under Polis. “I will not stand by and watch this beautiful state be destroyed,” she said, accusing Polis of “fighting for his own political career, for his own American Dream to be president and do (to) our country … what he’s done to our state.”

Polis closed out by dubbing Ganahal a “MAGA candidate” citing her own primary election literature, and saying she wants to defund public services, among other charges.

“We can choose to solve problems rather than just talk about them,” he said as he made his pitch for a second term.

At the conclusion of the roughly hour-long debate, Polis crossed the stage and they shook hands.
