    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.

    A young family from Evergreen with a knack for showmanship has won the grand prize over 185 other entries in a national video dance contest sponsored by the Primrose Schools of Atlanta.

    Thanks to the efforts of Rebekah and Schannon Gumz and their son, Aiden, 4, a $30,000 donation will go to Children's Hospital from the Primrose Schools based in Atlanta.

    They also received a $5,000 cash prize, which the family is donating back to Primrose School of Bear Creek in Lakewood, where Aiden goes to day care.

  • Along the north boundary of Mountain Park Homes, a lone chimney still stands below the granite cliffs. It is a fireplace that, for many, marks some of the mystery that was born to a subdivision whose small lots were designed for tents and one-room cabins.

  • Editor’s note: Local paleoclimatologist Peter Link filed this report on a recent trip to Patagonia. His photographs accompany the article.
