    Patrons of the Evergreen Jazz Festival will have the opportunity to experience “the San Francisco style” of traditional jazz when the Yerba Buena Stompers set foot on stage at the Elks Ballroom at 4:15 p.m. July 29 with their “Dixieland Jazz” theme set.
    The Stompers will play three other theme sets, including “King Oliver” and “Jelly Roll Morton” (my hero), as well as four other “un-themed” sets on that Friday and during the next two days.

  • In numerous prior visits to the Stransky Ranch, I had never noticed the remnants of the mill carriage lying beside the ranch road, but today Orrin’s sawmill appeared out of the tall thatch of last season’s grass. It was easy to imagine that the “dogs” (adjustable spikes that pinned a log to the carriage) were still set for the last log Orrin cut.

  • Kristina Hall has lived in Evergreen for almost three years. During her days as a barista and bartender at the Ice House coffee shop on Main Street, she meets the finest and the quirkiest of our mountain town.

  • The Sheriff’s Mounted Posse of Jefferson County began in February 1952, when the initial 30 deputies were sworn in by Sheriff Carl Enlow. Enlow, a Republican who served as county sheriff from 1949 to 1957, considered the creation of the posse, along with radio communication and marked patrol cars, as his major contributions to the department.

  • Even after 18 years in existence, very few people know they have Art for the Mountain Community to thank for the vast array of public art that greets us at every turn in Evergreen. AMC is a dedicated group of professional artists and art lovers who come together each year to select innovative, whimsical and beautiful sculptures to welcome visitors and citizens alike to our mountain town.

  • Since its founding in 1958, the Evergreen Artists Association has been a vibrant organization promoting the visual arts with shows, member activities, scholarships, monthly programs and the annual Evergreen Fine Arts Festival.  However, for the majority of those 53 years of existence, the EAA has been homeless — with no physical structure and gallery space to call its own. That is about to change.

    On Friday, June 24, the EAA will open the doors to Main Street Fine Art Gallery next to Beau Jo’s in downtown Evergreen.

  •  Veterans in their 80s and 90s who were members of the 10th Mountain Division at its inception came to the Evergreen Lake House on June 8 to tell stories of the amazing winter warriors who changed the world and then came home to create Colorado’s ski industry.

    A full house of 250 attended the event, "A Tribute to the 10th Mountain Division." Presentations included a slide show of vintage photographs and a Tom Brokaw video, as well as a collection of memorabilia.

  • Have you noticed the new shine on familiar sculptures around Evergreen? On Friday, May 27, fifth-graders from Evergreen Country Day School paired with Art for the Mountain Community to clean and re-wax 10 of the permanent sculptures around town.

    As part of a community service day, the fifth-graders spent their last full day of school learning about AMC’s permanent and temporary sculptures, touring the 2010-11 sculpture walk, and washing and waxing their assigned sculptures.

  • Some of my first and greatest memories of Shakespeare were of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” at the Goodman Theater in Chicago. I was a youthful theatergoer — maybe 11 or 12 — and too young to be intimidated by the alleged inaccessibility of Shakespeare’s works.
