Today's Features

  • Twice a year the improvisation specialists from the Evergreen Players gather for improv performances of epic proportion. In past performances, audiences have seen the improv troupe joke about their celebrity dopplegangers or use the bear-claw bangs and racing-stripe haircuts from their high school graduation photos as comic fodder.

  • After 24 years of teaching the history of the fur trade to Jefferson County students at its Outdoor Laboratory Schools, Bear the Mountain Man — a.k.a. Stephen Ham of Evergreen — has retired and is moving to Texas.

     

    “When I retired from the Outdoor Lab, it was the hardest thing I’ve ever done,” said Ham. “I just sat at the computer and cried.”

  • Conifer High School doubles as a community gathering place throughout the year, serving as everything from a wildfire-evacuation center to a slash-collection facility.

    On Aug. 23, Conifer High will be a night-long beacon of hope for those fighting cancer and the people who love them.

    The 2013 Relay for Life starts at 6 p.m. Aug. 23 at the Conifer High athletic fields.

  •  Evergreen resident Mariah Roberts is collecting clothing and other goods for impoverished Native Americans in Arizona and South Dakota. She is also hoping that someone will donate a truck to take the items to them — an expense that can be prohibitive, she said.

    Roberts is working through Native American Research and Preservation Inc., a nonprofit corporation that assists people living on reservations. The organization supplements government programs and is involved in efforts to preserve historic Native American culture and historic sites.

  • Evergreen artist Harold Linke was selected to place a piece in the Benson Sculpture Garden in Loveland. This is an honor bestowed on only a handful of artists, and Harold’s piece was installed on July 13 at the park. The piece he was asked to install is a life-size edition of “Girly Curl.”
