At the celebration of his 98th birthday at Elk Run Assisted Living on April 21, the staff presented resident Owen Ball a framed news article announcing his acquisition of the Canyon Courier in June 1963. A few days later on April 25, Ball died of natural causes after living in Evergreen for more than 50 years.
During the years that he owned the Courier, Ball watched Evergreen emerge from a small, isolated town with a saloon and horses to an upscale community, said his son Owen Ball Jr.
