  • This is the time of year when holiday traditions are forged. For many of us, an annual performance of Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” is part of our scrapbook of holiday memories. For several years, a small group of Evergreen Players veterans have created their own yuletide tradition by offering up heartfelt and oftentimes hilarious staged readings of the holiday classic at Center/Stage.

  • In 1941, the United Service Organizations, or USO, was founded to provide entertainment to troops around the world. Perhaps the most famous performer who toured with the USO was Bob Hope. Over the course of his career, Hope appeared in or hosted almost 200 USO performances, including annual Christmas tours for 35 consecutive years. This year, in the spirit of the holiday, the Evergreen Children’s Chorale performed a USO-type variety show called “A Passport in Song.”

  • Rebuilding a life doesn’t come cheap.
    Families who lost homes in the Lower North Fork Fire are juggling costs such as land reclamation, tree removal, and architectural plans and construction for those who want to rebuild on their properties, and house hunting costs for those who don’t.

  • Thirteen photographers were honored at the “Seasons of Our Mountains” calendar party hosted by Evergreen National Bank on Nov. 8.

  • There’s nothing quite like the smell of simmering chicken soup.

    Now, imagine the smell of 19 chicken soups simmering in slow cookers as part of the second annual Chicken Soup Challenge.

    On Saturday night, seven tables lined with slow cookers filled a large room at Congregation Beth Evergreen, where soup aficionados from Evergreen slurped soup, chatted and had a good time.

    Hang gliders and paragliders catching the currents at Lookout Mountain are enjoying the fruits of their joint labors with Jefferson County Open Space: an upgraded trail to the popular launch site on Windy Saddle.
    The airborne adventurers earn their rides by hauling gear weighing up to 80 pounds to the launch area — and a deteriorating foot trail was making that undertaking both unsafe and unpleasant.

  • In the last 25 years, Disney has brought to life some of the most magical stories of our time. “The Little Mermaid” is quite possibly the most magical of all Disney animations, packed with undersea orchestras and the iconic story of star-crossed loves, Ariel the mermaid and Eric the Prince. Add a live theatrical component to this show, and the magic is off the charts. Rocky Mountain Academy of Evergreen is excited to bring this show to the stages of Evergreen on Nov. 16 and 17.
