Today's Features

  • A family new to Evergreen is overwhelmed by the outpouring of support they’ve received in the wake of a fire that severely damaged their home — including efforts to keep a son’s impending wedding on track.

    The Bruce family moved to Evergreen last summer and into a home on Armadillo Trail off Highway 73 — the house that caught fire last month when wood framing around the chimney ignited and sent the Bruces fleeing into a chilly evening with only the clothes they were wearing.

  • Gerry Schulte once lived in a tent. Then he built a water district.

    Schulte and his wife landed in Colorado in the mid-1970s with few possessions. And now, when looking back at his 37 years at the helm of the Evergreen Metropolitan District, his fondest memory is of one possession the district acquired: a sludge truck.

  • Evergreen resident Judy Berna travels, skis, works at the Wulf and Buchanan rec centers, and has written a book. She is also missing a foot — and looking for others who might be missing limbs, too.

    Berna was born with a mild form of spina bifida, caused when some vertebrae don’t fully form and leave the spinal cord vulnerable to damage. A series of operations left Berna’s spinal cord unable to send signals to her left foot, which became deformed over time.

    As a child, she would dream of having a foot transplant.

  • Jackie Delafose, assistant principal at Conifer High School, was among African-American students who were bused to white schools in the early 1970s.

    Delafose began attending Central Elementary School in Lake Charles, La., after her parents received a letter informing them of the transfer from her neighborhood school.

  • Evergreen Lake put another notch in its resume last week when the BBC program “Horizons”filmed figure skaters gliding in a planetary dance on the frozen waters.

    A BBC crew was at the lake Jan. 21 to shoot interviews and other footage for an episode tentatively called “Cosmic Pinball.”BBC researcher Jenna Lane said the “Horizons”episode will air on BBC Two in the United Kingdom later this year, then on the Science Channel in the U.S. on a future date.

  • 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.

    MANifestations, opening at the Quilt Museum on Feb. 7 from 5 to 8:30 p.m., is the 12th biennial exhibit of quilts made by men and is a national juried competition. Slater’s piece celebrates the Colorado autumn and features an unusual combination with fused glass.

  • If Mt. Evans Home Health and Hospice looks good up close and personal, it looks even better by comparison.

    To find out how much better, visit www.medicare.gov, click on the “Home Health Compare”  page, and see how the mountain area’s nonprofit stacks up. The results are striking — Mount Evans outperforms the vast majority of home health organizations, public and private.

  • Mountain-area music mavens will have a lot more to love this Valentine’s Day, as the Evergreen Elks’ long-awaited Ragtime Bash comes roaring back into town in a backbeat blaze of syncopated savoir faire.

  • Ladies!

    Want to lose 10 inches off your waistline — in seconds?

    Wish you could regain that youthful hourglass figure without resorting to pills, fad diets or tedious exercises?

    If you’re ready to eat as much as you want, whenever you want, and then slide into your high school prom dress with the help of just one reasonably strong friend, you’ll want to check out the “Corset-Out Fashion Show,” which hits the runway at 1 p.m. March 8 in the Timbervale Barn directly behind the Hiwan Homestead Museum.
