Today's Features

  • As with most people living with a view of the Front Range mountains, I never tire of waking to view our local peaks wearing a cap of fresh snow — even though, this time of year, the storms come and go with a magical quickness. Like most of the kids I grew up with, I enjoyed hiking, camping, riding and fishing in the forests surrounding Mount Evans and its adjoining neighbors, with all of us feeling like these lands were part of our backyard.

  • Members of the arts and business communities of Evergreen are joining forces to produce a multi-week showcase of visual, musical, theatrical and cultural delights, "Arts Alive Evergreen," from July 15-31.

    This year there will be more art on display at the Bergen Village Shopping Center, more children's theater, new jazz workshops for teens, a free outdoor silent movie, an extra week and an extra weekend, in addition to the Summerfest and Jazz Festival weekends.

  • It’s not exactly a trip to Tahiti, but divers venturing into the various underground reservoirs serving the Evergreen Metro District help keep the water system in good shape.

  •  At EDS Waste Solutions, recyclables are getting a makeover. They come in looking like a disorganized mess and go out in style.

    EDS has installed an elevated sorting station with a conveyor belt, an industrial compactor and a baling machine at the EDS transfer station and recycling center at 5801 Highway 73.

  • A wise man once said, “A teacher affects eternity; she can never tell where her influence stops.” In the case of Ann Simpson, beloved art teacher at Evergreen Middle School, this is definitely true. Simpson has guided her students through the creation of award-winning pieces of art and taught them a deeper appreciation for other cultures, quirky objects or the human figure — all the while maintaining a professional art career of her own in her free time.

  • “Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.”
    — Herodotus

    A couple of weeks ago, longtime Evergreen resident Mary Noyes found a curious letter in her mailbox.

  • The Center for the Arts Evergreen has hired Jonathan Nicklow as its coordinator of education and community outreach.
    Nicklow is a recent master of fine arts graduate from the University of Colorado in printmaking; he received his bachelor of fine arts in painting from the Savannah College of Art. He is an exhibiting artist both in printmaking and mixed-media arts with an extensive exhibition record. Nicklow is also a teacher.

  • The Evergreen Chorale has taken part in many collaborations over the years — each one bringing a new twist to musical performance. Whether it is an Irish celebration with Colcannon or a Dixieland extravaganza with the Queen City Jazz Band, these partnerships make the musical experience of a Chorale performance even stronger. On May 7 and 8, the Chorale takes the concept of collaboration to a new level, taking on one of the top five choral masterpieces in the world, Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9.

  • Visual images are powerful for many reasons, but perhaps most important is their ability to construct a particular version of reality for the viewer. In his artwork, U.K.-born artist Christian Dore creates a lush reality that allows the viewer to not only look at the world around her, but to truly see and experience the sensations of the natural world. Dore’s artwork will be on display in a solo exhibition at Mirada Fine Art Gallery from May 7-29.

  • The second-grade Brownies of Troop 3922 designated Evergreen Christian Outreach food bank as their “Home Town Hero” and sold Girl Scout cookies to people willing to donate them to the food bank.
