  • When Doris and John Zesbaugh retired and moved to Evergreen 16 years ago, little did they know that they would take on nearly a full-time job to help the homeless.

  • In the wake of a tempestuous election season, it’s comforting and inspiring to reflect upon the beginnings of our nation. The Evergreen Chorale, in its latest production of the musical “1776,” provides us with the opportunity to travel back in time to witness the fights, debates and compromises that led to the founding of our country. The show also reminds us that one can always find much humor in the serious business of creating and running a country.

  • Many people in Evergreen knew Robert “Bob” Greenwood as a good neighbor and volunteer coach at the high school. 

    Perhaps not as well known are Greenwood’s accomplishments in professional and collegiate sports. An Ohio native with a passion for athletics, Greenwood played football for the Cleveland Rams in the 1940s. He also competed in football and track at Ohio University before transferring to Kent State, from which he graduated.

    Greenwood gained the most recognition for his abilities as a college basketball coach.

  • Jack Lima blames his mother for his obsession with Native American art. “She had this arrowhead that I coveted when I was 5 years old. I wanted to know everything about it. Who made? Why did they use it? But I had to get married and open a gallery before she would give it to me,” says Lima.

  • 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.
