Today's Features

  • The Evergreen Artists Association is known throughout our mountain community as an organization that promotes the visual arts by supporting working artists. What many people don’t know is that EAA also supports emerging art students with its Youth Scholarship. Funds raised from donations throughout the year are used to support this merit-based scholarship, which is applied toward college tuition for one high school senior. This year’s first-place scholarship was awarded to Conifer High School senior Caitlyn Maloney.

  • Conifer High School senior Reggie Dickhoff is raising funds for an Eagle Scout project to build wheelchair-accessible picnic tables for the fishing deck at Evergreen Lake.

  • “Beauty and the Beast”is a “tale as old as time.” Based on a French fairy tale, the Disney version of this classic has been a choice for children’s theaters ever since the animated Disney movie became popular in 1991. Colorado Children’s Theatre, a mainstay of theatrical and music education in the mountain area, invites you to “be its guest” at the upcoming production of “Beauty and the Beast.”

  • Critics are quick to make comparisons in the world of art. It’s often easier to define an artist’s body of work by what it resembles rather than by what it is. Many critics have compared artist Andrew Baird’s work to that of abstract expressionist Jackson Pollock. However, this comparison is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Baird’s signature style and densely layered paintings. One must see Baird’s work in person to grasp the depth of this Evergreen artist’s technique.

  • “101 Dalmatians” is a powerful story about family, animal cruelty and the triumph of kindness. It grabbed audiences in its first incarnation, the 1961 animated version, and it continued to warm hearts in the 1996 live-action version of the film. What could be more heartwarming than this classic story performed by the elementary school cast from StageDoor Theatre? On Thursday, May 10, the young actors from the Conifer-based theater open their production of “101 Dalmatians Kids,” a rollicking musical version of the canine tale.

  • Father and son both have the same intense look in their eyes, the same drive toward excellence. Both Glenn and Cameron Vogel hold Teenage Mr. America titles.

    A few years have gone by between the Vogel men’s titles.
    Nineteen-year-old Cameron placed first in his category two weeks ago during the Mr. America competition of the International Natural Bodybuilding Association in Secaucus, N.J. His father, Glenn, now 54, achieved the same title in 1977 while competing in Boston.

  • Samuel and Daniel Fleming’s heritage was Irish, and their life craft was quarrying sandstone. The two brothers found work near Columbus, Ohio, at a quarry owned by Mr. Garfield.

  • Want some palaver with your pizza? A side of conversation with your calzone? Care to wash down your baked ziti with a frosty glass of sparkling repartee?

     

  • Royalty.
    Yours truly.
    No, seriously.
    And I don’t mean royalty like that Johnny-come-lately Windsor crew. I’m talking about a divine right stretching back to the dim and darkly days when the dapper Duke of Cambridge’s clan wore mostly dirt and ate boiled peat for breakfast, lunch and tiffin. But hey, I’m not here to run down my noble cousins.
