Today's Features

  • The 11th annual Mountain Area Home and Garden Show kicks off at the end of next month, bringing together as many as 110 providers and good and services with thousands of attendees.

  • A short film shot in Evergreen last month brought cast and crew members from New York, Tennessee, Denver and New Zealand to town, and it’s hoped the drama about a mother and daughter facing their differences could put Evergreen on the map as a location for future films.

    “It has the possibility to put Evergreen in a spotlight that it hasn’t had before,” producer and Evergreen local Payton Dunham said. “Evergreen is a cool little town, but most people don’t know it’s up here.”

  • The Buffalo Bill Museum and Grave is offering visitors free admission on Sunday to commemorate the Western legend’s 170th birthday.

     

    The celebration of the life of William F. “Buffalo Bill” Cody takes place from noon to 4 p.m. at the museum on Lookout Mountain Road.

  • Who knew Abraham Lincoln’s birthday could be a romantic holiday?

    Last Thursday, the day before what would have been Lincoln’s 207th birthday, Evergreen Middle School social studies teacher Owen Volzke proposed to his girlfriend of two years, Ashley Safford, a sixth-grade math teacher at the school.

    Volzke chose the day because he has an affinity for Lincoln and because the couple watched the movie “Lincoln,” starring Daniel Day-Lewis and Sally Field, on one of their first dates.

  • They say you can’t mix business with pleasure. But how about mixing your business and personal lives?

    Evergreen is filled with couples who spend their days together at work, then spend their nights together at home. While this might be an impossibility for some, these couples say it works well for them.

    All it takes is excellent communication, a lot of respect and a strong sense of humor.

  • The food bank at Evergreen Christian Outreach is known for helping area residents keep food in the cupboard during lean times, but it also keeps furry friends from going without, thanks to an annual dog-food drive by Mountain Parks Veterinary Hospital. 

    This year's holiday drive netted 3,200 pounds of pet food, the largest donation since EChO began receiving the annual contribution in 2011.

  • Hard work, endless hours of practice and a resilient spirit carried the Evergreen High Poms back to national competition this year — and their trip to Orlando, Fla., in late January culminated with a fifth-in-the-nation finish in hip-hop.

    “We decided that we were going to go to finals this year,” head coach Monique O’Neill said of her squad.

    And reach the finals they did.

  • MORRISON — Morrison Police Chief Rudy Sandoval was pleasantly surprised and mildly competitive upon hearing his town was recently ranked among the 10 safest cities in Colorado. 

    “That’s good news,” Sandoval said. “Who beat us?”

    While Lakeside finished first, followed by Black Hawk and then Campo, Morrison finished fourth based on most police officers per capita. The recent report from ConsumerAffairs.com relied onFBI and Census Bureau data. 

  • Editor's note: This is the first installment of a series about the growing senior population in Jefferson County and the mountain area.

    Depending on whom you ask, the baby boom generation either popularized self-indulgence or helped create a more egalitarian America. But whether rotten or visionary, the generation born between 1946 and 1964 isn’t a kid anymore, and its final chapter promises changes and challenges to match any that have come before.

  • Hope and positivity are the best words to describe Evergreen’s Babb family, whose son Tommy was in a freak accident Dec. 27 while on a family vacation in Hawaii.

    The injuries have affected Tommy’s mobility, though it’s too soon to tell just how severely. However, family members — dad Steve, mom Christa, brother Adam and sister Claire — say they are embracing their new reality and moving forward, with their Christian faith as a guide.
