Today's Features

  • If you’ve ever known a hunter or a fisherman, you know their tales can be as long-winded as a hot-air balloon with a slow leak. StageDoor Theatre’s upcoming production of “Escanaba in Da Moonlight” is a hilarious laugh fest that presents a hunting story to beat all hunting stories. If you’re looking for a hysterically funny glimpse into traditional male rites of passage (both hunting and tall-tale telling), all roads lead to Escanaba.

  • In 2005, the members of Congregation Beth Evergreen took a leap of faith. The 30-year-old congregation had experienced growth, purchased land and built Evergreen’s first synagogue. Now it was the time for the next step: a full-time rabbi.

    After months of interviews, the board of directors hired Jamie Arnold, a young rabbi ordained in 1999 who was serving at Temple Sinai in Amherst, N.Y.

  • Mirada Fine Art represents an array of talented artists from around the world. This month, Mirada highlights a local artist better known in art markets such as Los Angeles, New Orleans and New York, rather than in his own hometown of Evergreen. Andrew Baird is a former art teacher from Evergreen High School who has become a national phenomenon for his unique artwork. Baird’s first exhibition in Colorado in more than three years, “Beautiful Chaos,” opens Friday at Mirada Fine Art in Indian Hills.

  • Sculptor Dan Toone stood in front of his piece as it was being installed in downtown Evergreen.

    While Toone, from Taylorsville, Utah, said he didn’t worry that something might go wrong during the installation, his crossed arms and hand over his mouth belied something a bit different.

    The 300-pound, 11-foot metal sculpture called "Austere" now stands in front of Evergreen Crafters as part of the yearly Sculpture Walk sponsored by Sculpture Evergreen, formerly Art for the Mountain Community.

  • R.J. Denbow knows how to keep his eye on the prize.

    Denbow, a 2000 graduate of Evergreen High School, decided by the time he was in second grade that he wanted to work in the medical field, and soon after he expanded his dream to become a flight nurse.

    In December, he landed that flight nurse job with Cal-Star, California Shock Trauma Air Rescue, near Sacramento.

  • On Friday night, the Evergreen Lake House will get into the swing at the Evergreen Chorale’s Swing Into Spring event. This special evening of 1940s music and swing dancing is a fund-raiser for the chorale and for Center/Stage Theatre, and will include a group swing dance lesson, dinner, drinks, and a live auction.

  • The partnership of artists David and Danna Cuin goes beyond a love of glass. The couple, both of whom have professional backgrounds in technical specialties, jumped into the world of art in 1998 and have never looked back. This month, the Cuins are approaching retirement from their second careers, as artists. After showing their work in galleries throughout the world, the Cuins will bring their entire collection of glass pieces home to the Evergreen Gallery.

  • Many dictionaries define “reality check” as “an assessment to determine if one’s circumstances or expectations conform to reality.” In the Evergreen Players’ latest evening of short plays, “Reality Check,” the actors and audience members alike will find themselves transported to four distinct and wonderfully warped worlds, each of which makes us question what reality truly is.

  • Congregation members and the community now have had a chance to see the new Bergen Park Church at 31919 Rocky Village Drive in Evergreen.

    A two-day open house on Saturday and Sunday included refreshments, crafts for the kids, chances to win entertainment tickets, and tours.

    "It's a pretty big deal for us," said Pastor Jim Demolar.

    The new 11,000-square-foot church cost almost $2.8 million to build. The congregation pledged about two-thirds of the building cost; a bank loan covered the rest.
