Today's Features

  • Don’t let the title fool you. “Strangers, Lovers and the Winds of Time” by Evergreen author Dale Lovin is far from a romance novel.

    Lovin’s second published work is a gritty, compelling portrait of white supremacists and their devastated victims. Written as a suspense novel interwoven with factual accounts of high-profile incidents, the book contains tales of past and present evil in American society.

  • The annual Hay Days at the Humphrey History Park and Museum offered a little something for everyone on Saturday.

    “The music has been the best part so far,” Evergreen resident Leslie Scully said after sharing a dance with her husband, Steve.

    The event, celebrating its third year, took attendees back to the early 1900s and showed what life in Evergreen was like then. 

  • “Kiss Me Kate” is a musical that belongs on the must-see list of any theater lover. Cole Porter’s most successful musical combines the style of the 1940s Golden Age of Broadway with the wit and tradition of Shakespeare. The Evergreen Chorale’s production of this timeless classic opens Sept. 12 and is the first in a lineup of exciting performances for the 2014-15 Chorale season.

  • Buchanan Rec Center on Sunday morning was inundated with kids swimming, running and biking in a triathlon that was meant to simply be fun.

    Nearly 130 children ages 5 to 13 swam laps in the pool, ran around one of the Bergen ponds, and biked through Bergen Park. No one timed the event, though lots of parents cheered, waved flags, rang cowbells and took pictures.

  • The workforce in Evergreen is made up of people who prepare food, repair worn shoes, develop social media skills for businesses and individuals, and manage nonprofit organizations that benefit the local and global community. They are among many people who help make Evergreen a thriving, viable place to live.

    A restaurant family

    Hla Win is a sushi chef with a fairly new restaurant in Bergen Park where he, his wife and son spend many hours preparing food and serving customers.

  • Artist Larisa Aukon spent her childhood years staring at the gray winter skies of Latvia. Fifteen years ago, when Aukon landed in Arizona, she found herself inspired by the explosion of color in the American Southwest. Today, Aukon’s monotone childhood memories are a far cry from the color- and light-imbued canvases she produces. At Mirada Fine Art Gallery in Indian Hills, Aukon’s first solo exhibition in Colorado, “color of LIFE,” reflects on the vibrant life she has built in her adopted home.

  • Several a-fungi-anados gathered at Flying J Ranch last Friday morning to learn about mushrooms in the mountain area of Jefferson County.

    “We have between 2,000 and 3,000 mushroom species just in this area,” said Mary Beth Carpenter, a volunteer with the Lookout Mountain Nature Center.

    About a dozen people showed up for “Beyond Pizza: What Everyone Should Know About Mushrooms.” Carpenter led the talk on families of fungus.

  • The first day of school is just around the corner. Perhaps it’s been a joyful summer of memories that will be recorded in your family scrapbook, or perhaps you’ve been counting the minutes until the little ones are thrown back into a daily routine. Either way, summer vacation is a bit like improvisational comedy — you spend three months with people who have no filter, and you make things up on the fly to keep them entertained. You can only hope that at the end of it all you find yourself laughing.
