  • Clients were streaming in and out of Tana Hetrick’s Animal Health Clinic on Evergreen Parkway last week, so much so that she’s having a difficult time packing.

    Hetrick is slowly saying goodbye to the practice she’s built over the last 25 years. She is spending February handing out medical records, taking care of patients in the middle of medical treatment, and cleaning out her clinic at 3999 Evergreen Parkway in Canyon Commons.

  • It’s the sweet season again in Evergreen, as sales of Girl Scout cookies are off and running.

    The sale began Feb. 8 and will last until March 15, with Scouts stationed outside several Evergreen businesses beginning this weekend. By the time the sale is done, Evergreen’s 300 Girl Scouts will sell more than 30,000 boxes, which equates to roughly 500,000 cookies.

  • The spicy aroma of Gumbo Ya-Ya filled the working home of the Humphrey History Park and Museum on Saturday afternoon. 

    As the gumbo simmered on the stove, Angela Rayne, executive director of the park and the class' teacher, rolled out sweet dough to make beignets for the Cajun meal.

  • The Mountain Fold club in Evergreen wants you to know that origami isn’t just folded paper cranes.

    The cranes are the most popular origami sculpture, but at Mountain Fold meetings, the group makes paper sculptures that are functional and creative.

    At a meeting Sunday afternoon at the Evergreen Library, the group made picture frames, including the stand and small gift boxes. One youth created a small doll, and another made ninja stars.

  • A retired U.S. Marine colonel wants to make a Hollywood movie about 10th Mountain Division greats Earl Clark and Dick Over. 

    Clark, 95, passed away just after Christmas at his Littleton home. He and Over, 91, of Lookout Mountain, traveled around Colorado for the last several years to discuss their experiences in World War II and during mountain training at Camp Hale near Leadville.

  • Friends and neighbors told stories at a candlelight vigil to honor Greg Henika on Sunday evening at Evergreen High School.

  • Skaters at Evergreen Lake on Jan. 11 were treated to car races on the ice — radio-controlled cars, that is.

    The small race course was in a corner of the rink, and skaters came by to watch as the cars, 14 inches long by 8 inches wide, moved deftly around hairpin turns and through straightaways. Think video games, only much more real and out of doors.

  • When a dog goes missing in unfamiliar territory during an arctic cold wave, the odds of his survival can dim the hopes of an anguished owner.

    However, after nine days of searching — and lots of help from mountain area residents and community organizations — Steve Gilligan of Chicago found Kid, his beloved blue heeler, on Dec. 30.

  • Temperatures in the single digits didn't discourage the hundreds of celebrants who thronged Evergreen Lake to watch fireworks and welcome the new year.

    The annual Skate the Lake event, which benefits DriveSmart Evergreen-Conifer, didn't disappoint, with ice skating, general merriment and two rounds of pyrotechnics.

  • While on the ice at Evergreen Lake on New Year’s Eve, Arvada resident Guy Kennedy and his wife, Kim, got a big surprise. Friends and former teammates who are members of the Dawg Nation Hockey Foundation presented the couple with a $10,140 check to assist with a health crisis in their family.
