Today's Features

  • Dogs and their owners in every shape and size participated in the fourth annual Wine, Washes & Wagging Tails event in downtown Evergreen on Sunday.

    From tiny Chihuahuas to a 150-pound chocolate Lab, from young children to older adults, the benefit for the Evergreen Animal Protective League had something for everyone.

  • The sun will come up on the Evergreen Players when the curtain opens at the latest production of "Annie," July 11 through Aug. 3. Families will enjoy sharing their memories of this beloved musical, as well as making new memories together when they follow the popular comic-strip heroine Little Orphan Annie and her dog Sandy on their adventures from Miss Hannigan's orphanage into the heart of Daddy Warbucks.

  • Bright and early on the Fourth of July, fine Americans from every walk, trot, gallop and dash of life put their feet to the street as Mount Evans Home Health Care & Hospice kicked off its 33rd annual Freedom Run 5K.

  • Evergreen resident Jack Holbrook had a typical work-from-home job — he talked with customers on the phone and worked on his computer for his job at the Electrical Construction Co. in Hawaii.

    The problem was, Holbrook didn’t really like working from his home. He went from working at a busy office in Hawaii to working at home in Evergreen, and he wanted to interact with co-workers. He also wanted to be able to meet with people and socialize after work.

    Holbrook apparently is not alone.

  • “Gardens and flowers have a way of bringing people together.”

    No truer words could be written about the garden south of the Evergreen Metropolitan District on Highway 73. 

    Known as the dam garden, its blooms attract visitors from May to October while its maintenance brings Evergreen Garden Club members together every Friday morning.

  • Amateur astronomers were treated to views of Mars, Saturn and the International Space Station last Saturday at Staunton State Park.

    Pam Little, astronomer and assistant director of the Evergreen Nature Center, led more than 20 attendees in a viewing of the night sky. Little handed out materials and showed everyone how to make a star clock.

  • The golf at Keys on the Green last Thursday was fairly normal — that is, if Santa Claus playing with a storm trooper could be considered par for the course.

    More than 100 golfers decked out in crazy costumes used even crazier methods to compete in the Evergreen Rotary’s 100 Holes of Golf fund-raising event. 

  • For the fourth consecutive year, Evergreen Fine Art Gallery will host a group of 56 of the country’s most celebrated Western artists. The Weekend in the West Art Show and Auction is an invitational event that welcomes painters and sculptors from across the Mountain West, giving art-lovers a rare opportunity to watch those talents at work and take home a masterpiece created before their eyes.

  • Buffalo Bill was in Evergreen on June 11 to tell his story — dressed to the teeth in a light-tan buckskin jacket with fringe, knee-high black boots, a trimmed goatee and a cowboy hat.

    Was it really THE Buffalo Bill Cody of Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show fame of the late 1800s?

    Of course not.

  • It was truly the “Year of the Horse.”

    Saturday’s Evergreen Rodeo Parade featured sawhorses on wheels made up to look like the real thing, and genuine equines that left behind plenty of all-too-real evidence of their attendance.

    For John Steinle, director of the Hiwan Homestead Museum, the hobby horses presented their own challenges.
