  • By Pam Montgomery

    My name is Pam Montgomery, and I’m a foodie. I love anything to do with food: eating it, cooking it, shopping for it, and getting others excited about it. I enjoy discovering a new restaurant or coffee shop, eating meals outside, browsing farmers markets, and even grocery shopping. It’s true. I can wander for a very long time in a produce aisle, take advantage of every taste offered, and always have my eye out for those discount sections hidden in the back.

  • Springtime in the Rockies can mean a lot of different things — a last-minute snowstorm before winter gives up for another year, tulips pushing up through the slowly thawing ground, or birds mating at the sign of warmer weather. Visitors to the Alliance Artists of Evergreen show “Springtime in the Rockies,” at the Center for the Arts Rotary Gallery at Center/Stage, will be privy to delightful images that are sure to take the chill off the final days of winter.

  • A traditional farce is a light, humorous play in which the plot depends on a skillfully exploited situation rather than the development of character. The Evergreen Players are pleased to use their upcoming production of “Black Comedy” to give audiences a laugh while hopefully bringing some much needed light to one family in darkness.

  • Nita the goose is lonely no more.

    The 7-year-old goose, who lost her mate two months ago has found two new friends, a mated pair named Harry and Sally.

     

    Harry and Sally also are white Chinese geese like Nita, and they came to Nita’s owners, Marie and George McLaughlin of Morrison, through a High Timber Times subscriber.

    “She didn’t want her name used in the paper,” Marie said. The woman had rescued the two geese but she already had chickens, so she didn’t especially want the geese.

  • Friends and family call Evergreen old-timer Louise Stransky Hendryx one of a kind, a strong woman, a lover of animals.

     

    And at 100 years old, Louise is still going strong. Hundreds of well-wishers turned out for her birthday party Sunday at the Church of the Transfiguration.

  • Strains of “Arabian Nights” can be heard wafting through the foothills from StageDoor Theatre. Enter the theater, and your family will be transported to the royal palace in the kingdom of Agrabah. StageDoor’s upcoming production of "Aladdin Jr." will transport you to a land with glowing genies, real flying carpets and familiar songs that will take you to “A Whole New World.”

  • Spring cleaning is just around the corner. Many people will clean out their closets and garages, tossing rusty tools and scratched CDs into the trash. The artists at the Evergreen Gallery have a different take on “trash.” The old adage says, “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.”

  • The Mountain Area Science Fair was held Feb. 10-11 at Evergreen Country Day School. Entries were judged in two divisions: second and third grade, and fourth through sixth grade.

    Schools participating this year were Bergen, Carlson, Dear Creek, Elk Creek, Evergreen Country Day, Marshdale, Parmalee, Ralston, West Jeff and Wilmot. More than 200 projects were judged.

     

  • It’s a tale as old as time: Two young people fall in love despite the obstacle of being from different classes.

     

    In this case, it’s the story of “Once on This Island,” a contemporary Broadway musical set in Haiti that is being performed by Evergreen High School theater and music students.

    Theater teacher Fran Arniotes says this is her favorite show.

    “The music is amazing; the story is amazing,” she said. “It’s a remarkable show.”

  • Mark Anthony King wasn't really looking for an opportunity to open an art gallery in Denver, but when he saw the perfect space at 13th Avenue and Bannock Street, he decided to make the leap. That was around Thanksgiving.

    In a few short months, he sold Stoneheart Gallery in Evergreen to Julianne Miller, who took over Jan. 15. King leased the Denver space and is getting it ready for the opening April 6.

    King, 45, had been a presence in Evergreen’s Main Street gallery scene for six years as owner and director of Stoneheart Gallery.
