  • Scuba diving off the coast of California inspired Ryan Lockwood to write his first novel, a thriller set in the vast ocean.

     

    “I’d always wanted to write a novel. I really just dove into it,” said Lockwood, who grew up in Evergreen.

    Lockwood’s book, titled “Below,” is officially hitting the shelves at area bookstores this week. 

    “It’s based on a real-world current event,” said Lockwood.

  • About a dozen children sat around a campfire at the United Methodist Church of Evergreen on Sunday morning to talk about Father’s Day and how important dads are.

  • Sherrill Stone was nervous.

    The Carbondale sculptor looked away as her half-ton Italian marble sculpture was tied up and moved via crane from the bed of her pickup to its new location in Kittredge Community Park.

    “I hate to watch this part,” she said.

    Representatives from Art for the Mountain Community secured the yellow straps on Saturday morning, preparing to place the artwork on its pedestal for a year as part of the 2013-14 Sculpture Walk.

  • The Center for the Arts Evergreen is a bustling place dedicated to promoting and cultivating artistic excellence and to enriching the art experience in our mountain community. Each year CAE hosts events, exhibitions, classes, arts festivals and programs. At the heart of it all are the artists who support the center through memberships, donations and volunteering.  The annual CAE Members Show is a way to highlight the work of these artists who give so much of their time and of themselves to make the Center for the Arts such an amazing place.

  • The Evergreen Artists Association promotes the visual arts in our mountain community with art shows, member activities, scholarships, workshops, programs and the annual Evergreen Fine Arts Festival. On Friday, May 31, the EAA opened its annual member show at the Main Street Fine Art Gallery in downtown Evergreen. The show is called “Birds of Our Mountain Area,” and features artwork that was inspired by and includes reference to birds from the Evergreen area.

  • Sometimes Evergreen’s hometown heroes aren’t necessarily in Evergreen.

    For Brownie Girl Scout Troop 3110, this year’s hometown heroes were at Children’s Hospital. The Bergen Valley third-grade girls recently honored the doctors and nurses in the hospital’s Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders who have been taking care of troop member Kaymen Story.

  • Staunton State Park’s much-anticipated opening weekend didn’t disappoint.

    “It’s been crazy getting ready for this, but seeing people happy has made all of the blood, sweat and tears worth it,” said Jennifer Anderson, the park manager. “I couldn’t have asked for the weekend to be better.”

  • The weather last Wednesday morning was perfect for fly-fishing: slightly overcast, a slight nip in the air with calm winds — and it was a perfect day for a group of Evergreen Middle School sixth-graders to try the sport.

    Thirty students in the Recreation Sports class, with the help of several teachers and a few Evergreen Trout Unlimited volunteers, gathered around the Buchanan ponds to fish for rainbow trout. In 2½ hours, the students caught and released about a half-dozen fish.
