  • Each year as the community prepares for Halloween, store shelves are lined with sinister costumes, and our world dresses itself in a bit of the macabre. This annual tradition proves that we find a bit of pleasure in scaring ourselves silly. The latest production of “Arsenic and Old Lace” at StageDoor Theatre is much more silly than scary, but the black comedy is still dotted with the all of the spine-tingling macabre that makes this time of year so much fun.

    Forecasting our future is no easier than forecasting the weather. The Jewish symbol of the Book of Life is a reminder of that, as are the daily news reports. Uncertainty and confusion abound: hurricanes and fires; unemployment and unstable markets; not to mention the changes at home — deaths and births, nests emptying, and parents aging.

  • September is a time to celebrate the beauty of our mountain community. The first touches of gold appear on the aspen, and the hay meadows have changed from green to shades of copper. It is also a time to celebrate the artistic community in the greater Evergreen area by visiting the studios of our working artists. The 10th annual Open Door Studios of Evergreen offers a backstage look at the time, talent and techniques involved in the creation of the beautiful works of art that best capture the changing seasons of Evergreen and the world beyond.

  • The Evergreen Chorale kicks off its 2011-12 season with “Evita,” a show-stopper that will fill Center/Stage Theater with the sights and sounds of Argentina in the early 20th century. This rock-opera story of the rise and fall of Argentina’s beloved first lady, Eva Peron, reopens on Broadway in 2012, but why fly to New York when you can enjoy the charms and ambitions of “Evita” right here in Evergreen?

  • Visiting from distant Oklahoma a couple of weeks ago, 5-year-old Teresa found much about Evergreen to her liking. She liked hiking in a mountain park. She liked collecting pinecones. She liked climbing on rocks. And she particularly liked pedal-boating on Evergreen Lake, with one small proviso.

  • Justin Ray, son of David and Mary Jane Ray of Evergreen, is engaged to Robin Gilmer, daughter of Claud and Tracy Gilmer of San Antonio, Texas.

  • The owners of Evergreen Fine Art, Barb Hadley and Phil Shanley, along with the rest of the gallery staff, have become known for their keen eyes for beautiful art and their charitable giving to their community. The latest show at the gallery, Weekend in the West, combines the best of these traits, promising to be a weekend of highly sought-after art and charitable support for our mountain schools’ arts programs.

  • Have you ever fallen prey to (or perhaps used) the age-old pick-up line, “What’s your sign?” The signs of the zodiac have been used to predict the future of people’s lives for years. In the case of Evergreen citizens and visitors, these astrological symbols can predict the future of your Friday night — a trip to the hottest art auction in town at Stoneheart Gallery on Main Street in Evergreen. You’ll leave feeling happier than a hippie that you finally paid attention when someone asked, “What’s your sign?”

    Do you struggle with your faith? I do daily. It is a part of what is often referred to as one’s faith journey.

    If at age 34 we are where we were when we were 14, there is a disjunction between our faith and our life. We all grow and mature in our life, and our faith needs to change as we change, or it ends up being a dead faith or an irrelevant faith to help us with life’s journey. There is a difference between a child-like faith and a childish faith.
