  • 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.

  • The Mountain Resource Center hosts its Empty Bowls fund-raiser every year, but the title is a bit misleading.

    Contrary to the name, there wasn’t an empty seat or bowl at the annual events last Wednesday and Thursday.

    “What makes this event great is that it’s all about the community coming together,” said Mary Alice Cohen, MRC programs and operations director.

  • A fund-raiser held Saturday to help those in the Evergreen area impacted by the September flooding exceeded expectations and was the epitome of the word “community.”

    Organizers of the event at the Elks Lodge lost count of the number of people who attended, but they estimate it was between 550 and 700. Some say it might have been the largest function ever held at the Elks Lodge.

  • The world of visual and performing arts is constantly changing. Artists explore new techniques, different media, or the conceptualization of life's poignant themes in new ways. Just as the artists themselves are evolving, so are the people behind the scenes who are forced to track the changes and even evoke some of their own, to keep our local art scene vibrant.
