Today's Features

  • You couldn’t open a newspaper or Web browser this summer without hearing about the new novel “Go Set a Watchman.” This book was the second published novel of Harper Lee, the famous author of the beloved classic “To Kill a Mockingbird.” Although the new book’s release caused a resurgence in interest in the reclusive author, interest in Lee’s first book never waned, and “To Kill a Mockingbird” is one of the best-selling novels of all time.

  • Come on, babe. Why don’t we paint the town? And all that jazz. That’s just what the Evergreen Chorale will be doing when its long-anticipated production of the musical “Chicago” opens Friday.

  • When the Evergreen Players founded EPiC — Evergreen Players Improv Comedy — in 2010, no one could have predicted how popular the troupe’s improvisational comedy shows would become. This weekend, EPiC presents its 12th improv show, and the laughs are guaranteed to be even bigger and more original than before.

  • From a pink pig sculpture with wings to intricately designed jewelry, the 49th annual Evergreen Fine Arts Festival featured a wealth of creative talent last weekend.

  • 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.

  • Evergreen High School graduates have ventured into diverse careers ranging from graphic design and writing to social work. One graduate is teaching dance in Tanzania, and another creates jewelry at her studio in Arizona.
    Here is a glimpse into the lives of five alumni.

    The five-generation Stransky family has lost the last of its original Evergreen settlers, the town has lost a precious part of its pioneer history, and humankind has lost a lovely soul.

    Following a brief illness, Louise Stransky Hendryx died June 30, 2015, at her creekside home in lower Evergreen. She was 103.

  • There’s nothing quite like a party done Evergreen style.

    The party after the Freedom Run on Saturday definitely fit the bill: a sea of blue T-shirts worn by the nearly 1,000 participants in the 5K run/walk, and red T-shirts worn by hundreds of volunteers who made the race and party happen.

    How fitting for the 34th annual July 4 morning tradition that benefits Mount Evans Home Health Care & Hospice.

  • Imagine you’re getting ready to travel in a covered wagon across the plains to Colorado during the mid-1800s. What would you take with you?

    That question was posed to a group of 7- to 12-year-olds during Pioneerpalooza last week at the Hiwan Homestead Museum.
