Today's Features

  • 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.

  •  

    The bell tower that stands sentry over the east end of downtown Evergreen is in need of repair, and the Church of the Transfiguration is hoping to get a grant to do the restoration work.

    The tower, originally dedicated on Easter Sunday 1911, was rededicated by the church’s congregation on April 24 to mark its 100th anniversary.

  • An Evergreen woman has started a new business to help people overwhelmed by clutter and mess, or even struggling with just one room full of disorganization.

    Think of that home office that seems perpetually buried in books, papers, boxes and bills. Shows like "Hoarders" on cable's A&E channel have exposed the emotional toll of compulsive collecting.

  • Robert L. Bramel, 73
    Robert L. Bramel, 73, a former resident of Evergreen, passed away April 6, 2011, in Fort Meyers, Fla., in the arms of Marilyn, his loving wife of 50 years.
    He was a modern pioneer and entrepreneur with a deep love of our freedom, faith, family and friends.
    Bob’s kindness and inspiration will be missed by many.

  • On Feb 27, Molly Homburger, a junior at Evergreen High School, was presented the Gold Medal Award in Senior Musical Composition by the Colorado PTA Reflections committee. Her piece, “The Cure,” is a piano and cello duet that will now go on to the National PTA competition, with awards announced in May. The theme of this year’s Reflections contest was “Together We Can” and her piece reflects her mother’s 11-year successful fight against breast cancer.

  • Katie Maes, Evergreen High School sophomore, Girl Scout Troop 1116, delivers 100 pounds of donated Girl Scout cookies to the EChO food bank on March 9. Maes collected donations (more than 300 total boxes) of cookies that in addition to the EChO food bank, were also delivered to the Evergreen Mountain Area Pregnancy Center and to Mean Street Ministries.

  • Mackenzie Iddings, Tate Grove and Michael Iddings competed in Rounds 1 and 2 of the Rocky Mountain Enduro Circuit’s opening race of the 2011 season on Feb. 5. The Duel in the Desert featured a cactus-riddled single-track course with technical sections, deep sand and open-range cattle. The local racers fared well against a competitive field from the mountain west.

  • A secluded tree house with all the amenities of a luxury hotel room, including a champagne-bubble hot tub for two, is innkeeper Gail Riley's idea of the picture-perfect romantic getaway.

    After two years of planning and construction and endless hours of shopping, research and thought, the Tree House at Highland Haven Creekside Inn is a reality. As of April 1, a few finishing touches were being added, but the multitude of details finally were complete and reservations were being booked.
