Today's Features

  • 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.

  • Wrapped in a wardrobe of hot pink and carrying her dog, Bruiser, the brainy and beautiful Elle Woods brings a sparkle to Evergreen High School’s production of “Legally Blonde: The Musical,” which opens this weekend.

    “Legally Blonde” is based on the original novel by Amanda Brown and the 2001 film starring Reese Witherspoon. With a book by Heather Hach and music and lyrics by Nell Benjamin and Laurence O’Keefe, the musical premiered on Broadway in 2007, running for 595 performances and garnering multiple Tony and Drama Desk nominations.

  • As Flatirons Community Church West Campus celebrates its one-year anniversary in Genesee, leaders say up to 1,600 members attend two separate services on any given Sunday.

    That's close to 25 percent growth in the last year — attributable both to the church's "real and relevant" modern sermons, as well as to the church's rapid growth at its original location in Lafayette, said Pastor Jesse DeYoung. 

  • The Felonius Smith Trio is among four musical groups making their debut at the Evergreen Jazz Festival in July. Bassist Scott Johnson and harmonica player Nic Clark will perform a blend of country, folk and delta blues with Jeff Smith, who has mastered a finger-picking style on his slide guitar. 

    The trio will showcase tunes from its recently released CD, “Before That Rooster Crows,” at the Jazz Festival, which runs July 24-26 at venues in Evergreen.

  • We’ve all met the girl who wants something so badly that she tries too hard to get it. That’s Charity Hope Valentine, the girl who wants to be loved so much that she has lost sight of who she is. Charity sings, dances, laughs and cries her way through “Sweet Charity,” the latest production by StageDoor Theatre’s high school company.
