Today's Features

  • “Way to go!” announcer Michelle Parker called to participants crossing the finish line at the annual Turkey Trot in Evergreen on Thanksgiving Day.

    Standing in the bright sunshine, people were basking in the morning glow of the event, which raised $7,000 for Evergreen Christian Outreach, an interfaith organization that assists the needy.

  • It was quite surprising to Lake House supervisor Brad Bednar when CNN last week put Evergreen Lake on a list of 10 of the world’s most beautiful ice-skating rinks.

    Evergreen was named with ice rinks in major cities around the world, including Beijing, Paris, Vienna, London, New York City and Sydney.

  • Girls and boys dressed in their holiday best waited excitedly for their chance to visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus on Saturday at the fifth annual Breakfast With Santa.

    The Evergreen Lake House was filled with children of all ages and their parents, who ate a breakfast of pancakes, eggs and sausage, followed by a wait in line to sit on Santa’s lap.

    Cameras were in abundance as Santa and Mrs. Claus posed with the kids.

    It was a fun day for the 250 people who attended the event sponsored by the Evergreen Downtown Business Association.

  • The Bluebell Fire that started June 3 in Evergreen saw first responders working around the clock to keep the flames at bay, and to their surprise — amid all the chaos and danger — a lemonade stand appeared nearby to quench their thirsts.

  • It all happened so fast.

    One second the young elk buck was sticking his nose through the half-closed safety netting surrounding Greg and Shauna Chase’s backyard trampoline, licking snow off the canvas. The next he was bouncing around inside it, looking equal parts surprised, confused and delighted.

    “It never happened before,” says Greg. “We have elk in the yard all the time, but they never showed any interest in the tramp.”

  • As the holiday season quickly approaches, mothers across the land spout the adage, “Good things come in small packages.” Nothing could be more true when it comes to “Miniature Masterpieces,” the upcoming show at Evergreen Fine Art Gallery. The exhibit opens Friday, Nov. 22, and features a gallery filled with artwork under 120 square inches.

  • Evergreen businessman Jim Sherwood has had the task this week of making people cry — and laugh, and shout for joy.

    Sherwood, who was the impetus behind a fund-raising event Nov. 2 at the Elks Lodge that raised $30,000 for victims of the September flooding in Evergreen, hand-delivered most of the 27 checks early this week.

    On Monday morning, he met with the owners of Cactus Jack’s Saloon and several of its employees, plus the building owner, to present checks.

    Sherwood declined to say how much each person received.

  • Once the calendar flips to November, thoughts turn to quality time with family and the holidays. We decorate our homes with candles and twinkling lights, and gather 'round the fireplace to chase the chill. The world is transformed into a bright and beautiful wonderland. The Prelude to the Evergreen Children’s Chorale presents a fall concert that captures this spirit of family and fun called “All Things Bright and Beautiful.”

  • Two local knitting supply shops, Yarn West in Evergreen and the Knit Knook in Conifer, have joined forces this year with a national charity to collect knitted hats, scarves, blankets and other items for Denver's homeless.
    Community Purls, a project formed under the umbrella of the charity Women4Women-Knitting4Peace, is calling on area knitters and crocheters to create blankets, hats and other items for the homeless and needy in Denver.

  • Rob Molholm, Evergreen High’s head football coach, wears on his right middle finger the ring he received when the Wheat Ridge High School Farmers won the state championship in 1996.

    He wears it as a reminder of what it takes to be a state champion, and he’s set that lofty goal for his Evergreen Cougars. EHS has never won a state football championship.

    “It has a special place in my heart, and it reminds me of what I’m striving for,” he said of the ring.
