  • Two firefighters carefully carried what first looked like an unconscious person out of the smoke in a home at 3711 Overlook Trail in Evergreen on Saturday.

    On closer examination, the unconscious person turned out to be a dummy that was part of training exercises being conducted in the 4,000-square-foot home in the Overlook at Palo Verde neighborhood.

  • There was a lot of toe-tapping and hand-clapping at Evergreen’s First Baptist Church on Sunday when the Amani Children’s Choir from Uganda filled the church with joyful music on Sunday.

    The 20-member choir danced and sang gospel songs in English, Swahili and their native Luganda during the church’s two services.

    The group, on a six-month tour of the United States, made a stop in Evergreen because one of the tour organizers, Carrie Hill, is a 1996 Evergreen High School graduate.

  • Clients were streaming in and out of Tana Hetrick’s Animal Health Clinic on Evergreen Parkway last week, so much so that she’s having a difficult time packing.

    Hetrick is slowly saying goodbye to the practice she’s built over the last 25 years. She is spending February handing out medical records, taking care of patients in the middle of medical treatment, and cleaning out her clinic at 3999 Evergreen Parkway in Canyon Commons.

  • For the past few years, Deb Dickinson has been working with other employees at TallGrass Aveda Spa and Salon on the Soldier Box Project, a charitable effort for which she recently received KMGH-TV’s 7Everyday Hero Award. 

    “It was definitely one of the highlights of my life,” Dickinson said of the honor, presented in December.

  • It’s the sweet season again in Evergreen, as sales of Girl Scout cookies are off and running.

    The sale began Feb. 8 and will last until March 15, with Scouts stationed outside several Evergreen businesses beginning this weekend. By the time the sale is done, Evergreen’s 300 Girl Scouts will sell more than 30,000 boxes, which equates to roughly 500,000 cookies.

  • The spicy aroma of Gumbo Ya-Ya filled the working home of the Humphrey History Park and Museum on Saturday afternoon. 

    As the gumbo simmered on the stove, Angela Rayne, executive director of the park and the class' teacher, rolled out sweet dough to make beignets for the Cajun meal.

  • In 2005, the members of Congregation Beth Evergreen took a leap of faith. The 30-year-old congregation had experienced growth, purchased land and built Evergreen’s first synagogue. Now it was the time for the next step: a full-time rabbi.

    After months of interviews, the board of directors hired Jamie Arnold, a young rabbi ordained in 1999 who was serving at Temple Sinai in Amherst, N.Y.

  • Mirada Fine Art represents an array of talented artists from around the world. This month, Mirada highlights a local artist better known in art markets such as Los Angeles, New Orleans and New York, rather than in his own hometown of Evergreen. Andrew Baird is a former art teacher from Evergreen High School who has become a national phenomenon for his unique artwork. Baird’s first exhibition in Colorado in more than three years, “Beautiful Chaos,” opens Friday at Mirada Fine Art in Indian Hills.

  • Sculptor Dan Toone stood in front of his piece as it was being installed in downtown Evergreen.

    While Toone, from Taylorsville, Utah, said he didn’t worry that something might go wrong during the installation, his crossed arms and hand over his mouth belied something a bit different.

    The 300-pound, 11-foot metal sculpture called "Austere" now stands in front of Evergreen Crafters as part of the yearly Sculpture Walk sponsored by Sculpture Evergreen, formerly Art for the Mountain Community.

  • R.J. Denbow knows how to keep his eye on the prize.

    Denbow, a 2000 graduate of Evergreen High School, decided by the time he was in second grade that he wanted to work in the medical field, and soon after he expanded his dream to become a flight nurse.

    In December, he landed that flight nurse job with Cal-Star, California Shock Trauma Air Rescue, near Sacramento.
