    1It was January, the dead of winter — time to break for South America.
    And so, Scott from Shreveport, my brother Andy from Houston and I boarded an overnight flight to La Paz, Bolivia, 12,001 feet above sea level. OK for me, living at 8,100 feet; not so sanguine for Scott and Andy. They did survive.

  • Some meetings are just serendipitous. Such was the case when Steven Sonnen walked into a gallery in Santa Fe, N.M. Little did he know that the artist whose work he was admiring, Andrée Hudson, lived in his own hometown of Evergreen.
    “I couldn’t believe it when the gallery gave me her contact information. Andrée literally lives 10 minutes from my wife and me in Evergreen,” says Sonnen, the owner of Mirada Fine Art in Indian Hills.

  • The University of Colorado Buffs has honored Shaye Evans, an eighth-grader at Evergreen Middle School, for great attitude.
    Qwest, Fox Sports Network Rocky Mountain and CU have named Evans a 2010-11 Winning Attitude Award winner. Winners are selected from a pool of stories submitted by middle school students explaining how their winning attitude made a difference in their communities. Students are honored for their outstanding efforts in sportsmanship, community involvement and teamwork.

  • A Kittredge woman who dreams of being a full-time professional photographer is a contestant on a locally produced reality show testing six budding photographers in various artistic challenges.

    KnoT New WooD, located in Kittredge at 26030 Highway 74, is the brainchild of Banaszek and Sullivan, who created the business to showcase wood repurposed into elegant, rustic or highly polished custom designs.
    “People come in here and want to touch all the different woods,” said Sullivan.

    People were standing in the dark Saturday night on a faraway hill in the mountains near Pine as they waited for the children.

    But in the velvet calm of quiet pines and forest floor, just before a fat moon slid into view, it wasn’t so calm for Peg Alig, a naturalist, and for the others waiting on the trail that led to the hilltop observatory.

  • Remember the old phrase — usually uttered by some mobster thug or a James Bond-type undercover operative — “I could tell you, but then I would have to kill you”? In the case of the upcoming comedy thriller “Accomplice,” opening at StageDoor Theatre in Conifer, this phrase holds true in spades.
