  • Location, location location.

    That’s Realtor-speak meaning that where a property is matters more than what it is. And in the case of a charming refurbished property just coming onto the Clear Creek County rental market, location really is everything.

  • Firefighter Terri McLaughlin is one of several women in the Evergreen Volunteer Fire Department who respond to calls, including those for wildland fires.

     

    A couple of weeks ago, McLaughlin and Evergreen firefighters Jeff Ashford, Byrne McKenna and Bill Atkins joined multiple mutual-aid crews working to contain the massive Black Forest Fire in Colorado Springs.

    “On the first day, we had live fire on top of us,” McLaughlin said. “We went to homes and worked on what could be saved.”

  • 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.
