Every year for 20 years, Wills has started his production process in February and then sold all of his artwork in one day nine months later.

A Pine woman who eventually pleaded guilty to stealing $11,000 from Evergreen Cub Scout Pack 39 in 2008 was sentenced Nov. 1 to four weekends in the Jefferson County jail and a year of probation.

Appearing in court with her lawyer, Ingrid Bakke, Lisa Marie Williams, 40, the former troop treasurer, said she was driven by financial desperation to steal the money but that she was "extremely remorseful."

Judge Christopher Munch ordered Williams to report to the jail on Friday, where she will be incarcerated for 48 hours.

Park district tackles discount facility rental rates for charity groups

By Vicky Gits

The Evergreen Park and Recreation District is beginning to tackle the complex topic of support levels for the multitude of groups that use the Lake House and other district facilities for meetings, gatherings, money-making and fund-raising events.

Over its 41 years, the district has lent its non-monetary support (or in-kind services) to a variety of nonprofit groups on a case-by-case basis. But in the last couple of years, the question has surfaced whether all of those groups enjoyed equal treatment.

Fire district, metro district, schools rail against ballot measures

By Vicky Gits

If the proposed Proposition 101 passes on Election Day, Evergreen Fire/Rescue can expect to lose all the income it currently gets from taxes on motor vehicles, which equaled $350,000 in 2010.

In addition, 911 fees would be frozen at 2009 levels, according to Fire Chief Garry DeJong. 

DeJong spoke at a forum Oct. 27 at the Evergreen Fire Administration Building in front of a small group of people mostly involved in special-district administration.

Q&A with state Senate candidate Jeanne Nicholson

1. Experience and background. What about your upbringing, outlook, education  or experience makes you a good candidate for the job?

 

I have lived in the district for 39 years, as a county commissioner I indirectly created jobs in the private sector, I have experience as a small business owner, and as a masters-prepared registered nurse with 35 years of experience in health care. I am well positioned to help implement the health care reform measures passed by Congress.
