Today's Features

  • The golf at Keys on the Green last Thursday was fairly normal — that is, if Santa Claus playing with a storm trooper could be considered par for the course.

    More than 100 golfers decked out in crazy costumes used even crazier methods to compete in the Evergreen Rotary’s 100 Holes of Golf fund-raising event. 

  • For the fourth consecutive year, Evergreen Fine Art Gallery will host a group of 56 of the country’s most celebrated Western artists. The Weekend in the West Art Show and Auction is an invitational event that welcomes painters and sculptors from across the Mountain West, giving art-lovers a rare opportunity to watch those talents at work and take home a masterpiece created before their eyes.

  • Buffalo Bill was in Evergreen on June 11 to tell his story — dressed to the teeth in a light-tan buckskin jacket with fringe, knee-high black boots, a trimmed goatee and a cowboy hat.

    Was it really THE Buffalo Bill Cody of Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show fame of the late 1800s?

    Of course not.

  • It was truly the “Year of the Horse.”

    Saturday’s Evergreen Rodeo Parade featured sawhorses on wheels made up to look like the real thing, and genuine equines that left behind plenty of all-too-real evidence of their attendance.

    For John Steinle, director of the Hiwan Homestead Museum, the hobby horses presented their own challenges.

  • Conifer High School senior Kooper Hackmann has been on a running kick lately.

  • Former Inter-Canyon fire chief David MacBean blames a lack of oversight and his own personal problems for stealing $647,000 from the district.

    In an exclusive interview with the Courier, MacBean, who pleaded guilty in April to two counts of theft and one of embezzlement, also said the nominal stipend he received as chief led him to resent the job, and to use the district credit card “to surround myself with stuff.”

    He faces up to 27 years in prison at sentencing on June 24.

  • Kai Bianco is being called a “miracle baby” by Evergreen Fire/Rescue paramedics and Flight for Life personnel.

    Kai, who turned 1 on Saturday, was bitten in the head by the family dog on March 4. Not only did he survive, but according to his parents, he’s back to doing everything he was doing before the accident: pulling himself up to standing, babbling like babies do, and feeding himself.

  • Colorado Civil Air Patrol cadets in military uniforms and bright yellow vests were seen on Highway 73 on Saturday, searching for a hiker reported missing near Cub Creek Park in Evergreen.

    Fortunately, the search-and-rescue effort was just a ground training exercise for some CAP members and cadets. The nonprofit group includes an Evergreen squadron and several teenage cadets.
