Today's Features

  • The Evergreen Chorale launches into spring with its presentation of “Sun, Moon, Earth and Sea” for two performances only this Friday and again on Sunday.
    Through heartfelt expression and song, the concert is poised to sweep you away, deep into the realm of majestic nature. Sight combined with sound accentuates the many sensations normally found outdoors. Clouds, snowflakes, trees, butterflies and mountains, to name a few, will be offered for your imagination and enjoyment.

  • The 1984 hit movie “Footloose” is especially remembered for its sizzling, first-rate dancing that virtually brought it to fame.
    Although dance will again fill the stage in Conifer, the StageDoor Theatre’s production of “Footloose” will focus on its rich storyline, while developing each character to the fullest. The play centers on the spirit of youth, the effects of rebellion and for sure romance.

  • You’re never too young to find your passion.
    Elvis Rankin of Evergreen discovered his passion at 3 1/2 when his grandfather introduced him to his first midget racecar.
    Today at age 9, he has won an abundance of awards competing in Quarter Midget Racing and has a car in the American Museum of Speed in Lincoln, Neb.
    Elvis, along with his parents, Randy and Lisa Rankin, joined Rocky Mountain Quarter Midget Association after Elvis turned 5, and he has been racing every since.

  • I met Barbara Waldvogle in 2012 shortly after she moved into the Life Care Center here in Evergreen. It is the privilege of local clergy to provide worship for the residents on a rotating basis. I have enjoyed this opportunity since 2004.

  • A Morrison man is showing the flag — literally — to do his part to stop the divisiveness that surrounded November’s presidential election.

    Jeff McNamara has taken to waving an American flag near his home at U.S. 285 and Sourdough Drive, at the roundabout in Marshdale, on overpasses along C-470, and elsewhere. He calls his stints with the flag “Yay America” rallies.

  • A Conifer student personifies the notion that young people can make a difference.

    Kayla Wolins, 15, a freshman at Colorado Academy, has donated more than $18,000 over the last three years to the Wild Animal Sanctuary in Keenesburg, a haven for large animals such as bears, tigers, lions and coyotes.

  • Most people see a chair as merely a place to sit. Jonathan Gerspach, though, has a deep-seated tendency to view chairs — and other pieces of furniture — as works of art.

    For Gerspach, a single chair can represent hours of work — designing, measuring, building, crafting and finishing.

  • Under a stream of glaring light, a rush of water gushed from a long hose. The spray splashed onto a colorless sheet of ice, which aided its molecular brethren in the freezing process. Two men clad in heavy gear and spiky shoes nimbly ran across the lake, moving snow out of the way and pulling the hose in the desired direction.

    One rink took a mere 10 minutes to spray down, but there were several more to go.

  • Environmental concerns — including high lead levels in tap water at Jeffco schools, a dangerous chemical found buried at the Lockheed-Martin plant in South Jeffco, and the effects of planned development in the Rooney Valley — dominated the headlines in Jefferson County news last year.

  • Turmoil at a local charter school, a state representative sent to jail, and community cleanup efforts were among the top stories in the mountain area in 2016. 

    Rocky Mountain Academy finds a path forward

    Rocky Mountain Academy of Evergreen is moving forward after many months of discord that culminated in a protest by parents and students in October.
