  • Yoga at the recreation center is customary, and yoga outside with a scenic view is ideal. But yoga on a paddleboard on a pond with mountain views is a bit unusual.

    On July 13, six students prepared for bent-knee, or sridaiva, yoga — also known as bowspring — on paddleboards in Buchanan Ponds.

  • Acrylics and dyes. Metal and wood. Glass and clay. Gold, silver and bronze. Dazzling neons and muted tones. The gentle tones of wind chimes. The soft texture of cloth. Bright and dazzling photographs of nature.

    The Center for the Art’s 37th annual Summerfest once again turned Buchanan Park into an eclectic display of artistry, from clothing and jewelry to paintings and woodcarvings. Plus, with food, drinks, music and other entertainment, the entire field was alive with an assortment of activities for visitors to enjoy.

  • Former Conifer resident Jana Elliott, who was killed in a highway crash July 10 after stopping to assist other motorists in Lakewood, is remembered as a person who always wanted to help others.

  • Editor’s note: This story is part of a continuing series on the growing number of elderly in the mountain area.

    With the nation’s senior population expected to double within the next 15 years, the pinch to keep pace will be felt nowhere more keenly than at the Seniors’ Resource Center.

  • The Andy Smith Sr. Memorial Golf Tournament is as much about a grandfather’s love as it is about raising money for the Evergreen Park and Recreation District’s special populations program.

    Mountain Foothills Rotary, which sponsors the tournament, named it in honor of Smith Sr. in 2007. Smith, who died that year, owned Evergreen Oil Co., and he was a major sponsor because he had a special place in his heart for children with special needs, especially his grandson, Andrew Tyler Smith, known as Tyler.

  • No rendition of Tchaikovsky's "1812 Overture" is complete without a cannon, honor guard, and maybe a bit of rain.

    Hundreds of attendees braved the intermittent afternoon rain Monday to enjoy the musical varieties at the 27th annual Evergreen Music Festival at Buchanan Park. Organizers said about 1,400 people attended, and the festival had a record number of sponsors and vendors.

  • Despite not receiving a certified creative district designation from the state, members of the Evergreen arts community say working toward the certification for the past two years has paid off for the arts and local businesses.

    “I think it made a lot of the arts organizations and a lot of community members aware of what we have here,” said Beth Riser, who has been heading the effort for the past few months. “The arts organizations came together and really started working together. … We have really cross-promoted each other.”

  • Participants in the annual Freedom Run on July 4th included an assortment of people from all walks of life — from 2 months old to 86, from serious runners to families with strollers. And some brought their dogs, from golden retrievers to Chihuahuas.

    About 930 racers enjoyed the cool morning air as they traversed the Hiwan subdivision to run or walk the 5K from Evergreen Middle School to Nick’s Pro Fitness. It was the 35th annual run to benefit Mount Evans Home Health Care & Hospice.

  • Editor’s note: The Canyon Courier is following three people hoping to complete the Evergreen Fire/Rescue academy to get their firefighting certification. This is the second in a series of stories about what it takes to become a firefighter.

    Dragsters can go from a standstill to 100 mph in less than a second.

    Firefighters do virtually the same, going from a standstill to adrenalin-pumping, physically demanding, high-stress work to fight a fire.

  • Miss Rodeo America and Miss Rodeo Colorado sat side by side on the top of a restored fire truck Saturday, smiling and waving to the thousands of Rodeo Parade attendees lining downtown Evergreen.
