  • The holiday season is all about giving. We spend hours choosing just the right gift to bring a smile to our loved ones’ faces. Over the past several years, the Evergreen Chorale has taken this spirit of giving a step further and is making plans to continue the tradition throughout the entire year.

  • The EHS Poms captured top honors recently in two local competitions. The Poms won the division championship in hip-hop at the UDA Regional Dance Competition at the Denver Convention Center on Nov. 13.

  • The aisles of the stores are filled with high-tech video games and iPads, and movie theaters are buzzing with the latest three-dimensional marvel. This holiday season is packed with the latest and greatest of 21st-century technology, and it can be, at times, overwhelming. Why not take a break from the electronic rat race and enjoy a fun-filled evening at StageDoor Theatre’s production of “The Pajama Game.” It’s sure to be a light-hearted blast from the past.

  • Many holiday traditions in the U.S. are tinged with a taste of Merry Ole’ England. Families head to the theater to have their holiday spirits renewed by Dickens’ grumpy yet lovable Ebeneezer Scrooge. Singers gather round doorsteps to serenade neighbors with candlelight carols. What better way to ring in the holidays than immersing yourself in the grand tradition of King Henry’s Renaissance court at the 24th annual Madrigal Marketplace and Faire presented by the Evergreen High School Performing Arts Department.

  • For a decade in the middle of Winston Jones’ long run exhibiting the world’s largest bell collection, in and around his lovely home at the start of Upper Bear Creek, Orville Hagen gave Bergen Park the right to claim the title of the world’s largest collection of clocks. If you missed visiting the Clock Museum before its closure, you missed the chance to hear more than 1,000 clocks chiming at once. If you missed Winston ringing in the new year before his passing and leaving his collection to Hasting College, you missed a huge and unique opportunity.

  • What are bells on bobtails? Why are the lords a-leaping? What will it take to have peace on Earth and goodwill toward all people? These questions arise each year at the holiday season. Some take a lighthearted look at the intricacies of holiday caroling, and others address more serious issues that world leaders and everyday citizens have struggled with for years. This year, the Evergreen Children’s Chorale is taking on all of these questions in song at its annual holiday concert “Songs of Hope.”

  • Over a cup of joe a few weeks ago, three women set out to bring some sanity to Evergreen. Jon Stewart, Comedy Central's host of “The Daily Show,” hosted the Rally to Restore Sanity in Washington, D.C., on Oct. 30, and Katharine Hahn, Suzi Hoffer and Gail Montgomery felt that Evergreen should do the same. Political ads full of venom, conversations leading to screaming matches, and accusations laced with hatred all spoke to a need for a rally.
