  •  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.

     

  • Trickster lawyers, flashbulbs snapping at the well-publicized trial, and instant celebrity. This could be the latest Lindsay Lohan or Paris Hilton escapade. But add a little of the glitz of the Prohibition-era underworld and a touch of jazz, and you have StageDoor Theatre’s latest production of the award-winning musical “Chicago.”

  • If it weren’t for the White Rabbit, Alice would simply have enjoyed a lazy, albeit slightly boring, day by the river. Instead, Alice follows the talking, clothed Rabbit down the rabbit hole and into a Wonderland filled with nonsense and whimsy. The Evergreen Children’s Chorale is set to take its audiences into Lewis Carroll’s world of talking cards and grinning cats with its upcoming production of “Alice in Wonderland, Jr.”

  • Jock Spence constructed the bell tower at the Mission of the Transfiguration in 1911. Then, the Army Corps of Engineers restored it in 1978. The 35-foot tower, besides calling families to service, has greeted travelers as they entered Evergreen after driving Highway 74, climbing through Bear Creek Canyon. Many citizens of Evergreen still consider the bell tower one of the gateways of town.
