  • “The guy who’s riding a $1,000 bicycle is not going to stop if he doesn’t have a way to secure it,” says Kittredge resident Jerry Smith.

    Representing the Lariat Loop Alliance, Smith is contacting businesses and agencies in Evergreen and Kittredge to generate interest in placing creatively designed bike racks on their properties.

    “The bicycle racks accommodate people and give them a place to park,” Smith said.

  • The thought actually hit me earlier in the week that 19 years before, as a mere 21-year-old in Craigsville, Va., of all places, I stepped into a professional wrestling ring for the first time as a referee. But that's not where my love affair with what is now more prominently called sports entertainment began.

  • Lots and lots of bubbles constituted the theme of a two-hour class attended by more than a half-dozen children last week.

    The kids played with bubble makers and soap at the Hiwan History Museum, creating huge bubbles, tiny bubbles, square bubbles and triangle bubbles. They learned how to catch them and put their arms through them — all while being outdoors and having fun.

    Although bubble making was entertaining for the youngsters, it was a learning opportunity, too.

  • The Evergreen Players have been honored in recent years for their authenticity in acting, directorial innovation and willingness to push the boundaries of contemporary community theater. In 1967 when “Hair: The American Tribal Love-Rock Musical” debuted off-Broadway, the show was lauded for similar risk-taking and cultural significance. What better combination than a groundbreaking theater group presenting the musical that broke new ground in musical theater?

  • Alicia Brummer and Duncan Dotterrer of Denver will marry Sept 29 at Chatauqua Park in Boulder.
    Brummer is the daughter of Dr. and Mrs. John Brummer of Baltimore, Md., and Dotterrer is the son of Ilona Dotterrer or Boulder and Bill Dotterrer of Commerce City.

  • Soon after getting word of the disastrous fire in Colorado Springs, members of the Evergreen Salvation Army Extension Unit voted to send a $5,000 check to the Intermountain Headquarters to assist in providing relief services throughout Colorado.
    The donation represents about 12 percent of what was raised in the annual Red Kettle drive last November and December when area volunteers rang bells in front of King Soopers, Safeway and Walmart.

  • Evergreen High School student Ian Klein is collecting donations and funds for an Eagle Scout project to restore a trail at the Humphrey Memorial Park & Museum of Evergreen.
    Klein estimates that he will need $800 in donations for supplies. He is also asking for a sponsor to fund lunch for about 50 workers on July 12 and Aug. 9.
    The project will be to restore a trail, and to place rest stops and benches along the trail. The trail is named the Jim and Joe Trail after the original owners of the ranch.

  • Craig Dickson, a 1985 graduate of Evergreen High School, was recently inducted into the Adams State Athletics Hall of Fame. Dickson won the national NAIA Cross Country Championship in 1986, was a member of three national championship teams and was an eight-time all-America in cross country and track. 

  • Live from Evergreen … it’s Friday night! On June 1, a select group of teen drama students will follow in the footsteps of sketch-comedy legends to create their own version of “Saturday Night Live” at Center/Stage Theatre. This improvisational comedy troupe, known as The Tribe, is now in its fourth summer of performance, and audiences are sure to be delighted by their quick-wit and unique brand of humor that only a Colorado teenager can conjure.

    The Tribe was born from a musical theater summer camp offered by the Evergreen Players.
