  • Bernie Goldman walked through the doors of the Canyon Courier in 1974 to place a want ad — he was looking for members of the Jewish faith with whom to celebrate the High Holidays. And so, Congregation Beth Evergreen was born.

    “I met with him several times,” Rabbi Jamie Arnold said of Goldman, who died last October. “He was friends with the editor of the Courier, and one day was joking with him about there being 19 churches in the church directory of the paper. And he said, ‘You know what the 20th should be? A synagogue.’ ”

  • The artistic creations of area elementary school students will be on display at Shadow Mountain Gallery beginning Friday.

    Most of the works are two-dimensional, said Don Fairchild, coordinator for the 20th annual school art show at the gallery.

    Teachers at each of the participating schools have selected six to eight art pieces created by students in kindergarten through sixth grade.

  • For Nitty Gritty Dirt Band founder John McEuen, his sold-out gig at the Little Bear on Sunday night was a homecoming — from a musician’s and a wanderer’s perspective.

  • Flatirons Community Church in Lafayette has expanded to Genesee with a West Campus facility that officially opened its doors to members and visitors Sunday.

    After an extensive search, leaders of the congregation bought the large church building that stood vacant for the past two years since Lookout Mountain Community Church moved because of shrinking membership.

  • If you tuned in for the Super Bowl halftime show, you got an eyeful of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. The Chili Peppers, an iconic male quartet from the 1990s and 2000s, are famous for their frenetic on-stage persona and a funk-rock vibe. True fans of the band, however, appreciate their tight vocal harmonies.

    A standing-room-only crowd braved single-digit temperatures Tuesday night to voice opposition to a proposed 135-square-foot illuminated sign at Flatirons Community Church off Interstate 70 near Genesee.

    The sign would feature the church logo — a white image of the Boulder Flatirons surrounded by orange.

  • Evergreen artist Carmon Slater is exhibiting a retrospective of his work at the Lakewood Cultural Center, and is part of a show at the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum in Golden.
