  • It may be a bit early to start thinking about those special trees we cherish in December, but it's never the wrong time to remember your loved ones.

  • A large, furry rattlesnake was lying in wait for unsuspecting youngsters to appear on the trail at Lookout Mountain Nature Center on Saturday afternoon.

    “You know what I do?” the reptile said when the kids met up with him. “I smell with my tongue. When I see a mouse, I take my two fangs and zap it with a bit of venom. And I eat it up.”

    Decked out in their Halloween costumes, the kids seemed impressed with the snake’s skills, as well as his wealth of knowledge.

  • Five area nonprofit organizations recently combined efforts to attract business to their thrift stores.

    "We held a treasure hunt and encouraged everyone to visit each store on the map, get a sticker, and enjoy the many specials and treasures at each location," said Sharon Smith, executive director of Evergreen Christian Outreach. "Our goal was to encourage folks to shop locally and discover the 'hidden treasures' that could be found."

  • “If you give a man a fish, he is hungry again in an hour; if you teach him to catch a fish, you do him a good turn."

    Friendship Bridge is not about giving food to poor women in Guatemala; it is about doing a good turn by helping them start businesses, so they can feed their own families.

  • If you ask Warren Rose what his favorite day of the week is, he’ll say it’s Tuesday.
    That’s because he dedicates Tuesdays to volunteering at the Seniors’ Resource Center in Evergreen — and making many new friends.
    “I look forward to going in there on my volunteer days and seeing my friends,” Rose said.
    Now in its 35th year, SRC’s mission is to coordinate services to enhance independence, dignity and quality of life for seniors.

  • An Evergreen couple are participating in a cycling event, but it’s not your everyday bike ride: It’s a 350-mile benefit through — and for — Israel.

    It’s also a journey back to their roots.

    Jonathan and Beth Miller, members of Congregation Beth Evergreen, are raising money for the Arava Institute for Environmental Studies and a nonprofit organization called Hazon, both of which promote healthy living and sustainability in Israel.

  • Colorado’s name means “colored red” and is linked to the Colorado River. The river was dubbed “Rio Colorado” by early Spanish explorers because of the red color silt it carries from the mountains. When the area became an official territory in 1861, officials believed the term would be an apt moniker for our colorful lands. 

  • "I love babies," said Evergreen resident Kathy Magnani.
    In the past 10 years, Magnani has spent more that 850 hours giving comfort to tiny infants in the neonatal intensive-care unit at Presbyterian/St. Luke's Medical Center in Denver. Each Thursday morning, she goes to the hospital and holds a baby for two hours.
    "My job is to go in to cuddle these babies," Magnani said with a big smile.

  • It is an apparently immutable law of hydrology that each uncommon rise in the waters of Bear Creek is attended by a simultaneous and equal rise in public anxiety regarding Evergreen Dam.

  • Hundreds of Männer, Frauen und Kinder packed Buchanan Park for the fourth annual Oktoberfest on Sunday for some traditional German fare, music, food and, of course, beer.

    The event was originally scheduled for Sept. 22 at the Evergreen Lake House, but the date and location were changed because of September’s flooding and the resulting damage.
