    Bravo! Bellissimo!

    Granted, it’s a long way from Italy to Clear Creek County, but the winners of the top pro categories at the 49th Bob Cook Memorial Mt. Evans Hill Climb have a connection to the land of La Dolce Vita.

  • Time for school board to come clean

    “A little water clears us of this deed.”
     — Lady Macbeth

    Let’s pick up where I left off last week: with the untimely decapitation of Todd Lancaster, our erstwhile superintendent.
    I e-mailed Peter Monson, an old friend, colleague and longtime member of the Board of Education, inviting the board and “interim” superintendent Roslin Marshall to my KYGT-FM show to give them the opportunity “to clear the air regarding ‘Toddgate.’ ”

    Skirts swirled and fingers twirled as dancers moved to smoothly styled tunes played by the Blue Suitcase Trio at the Evergreen Jazz Festival on Saturday afternoon.
    The New York-based musicians were among many talented groups that performed during the annual three-day festival in Evergreen.

    Brock Burke made his professional debut for the Gulf Coast Rays on July 18 against the Baltimore Orioles’ rookie-level team at Ed Smith Stadium in Sarasota, Fla. 

    The 6-foot-2 left-hander started and pitched just the first inning as the team slowly works him into the rotation after a heavy pitch count during the high school season.

    The 17-year-old Evergreen High graduate tossed a one-two-three inning, striking out the Orioles’ Henry Urrutia to end the frame. 

  • New Evergreen High boys soccer coach Fowler has big shoes to fill

    Ross Fowler has plenty of soccer coaching experience from his time with the Colorado Rush and Altitude FC, where he has been the director of coaching for both. Now the Manchester, England native has his first head coaching position at the high school level.

    Earlier this summer, Fowler was named the head coach for Evergreen High School’s boys soccer program, replacing Peter Jeans, who resigned for personal reasons.

    “It’s a good program. It’s an exciting opportunity to try to build on,” Fowler said.

    Underneath the helmet and shoulder pads, Clear Creek High School senior linebacker/tight end AJ Parrish looked around and saw a lot of familiar faces.

    “It feels great. I’m back out with my guys that I’ve played with since my seventh-grade year,” Parrish said. “We’re going back at it one more time.”
