  • The real steel: Evergreen artist shows his metal

    No yard is so beautiful that it can’t be improved by a visit from some of the mountain area’s wilder residents. On the other hand, real elk can be murder on flowerbeds, real bear come with real teeth and real claws, and real wildlife of any kind can’t be relied upon to drop by when the in-laws are in town.

  • Hospice to benefit from land sales at Cub Creek Ranch

    David Graham has always been a supporter of Mount Evans Hospice, but about a year ago he decided to show his support in a more “constructive” way.

    The longtime Evergreen developer pledged to donate 1 percent of the sale price of each home site in Cub Creek Ranch at the end of Little Cub Creek Road south of downtown Evergreen.

    At stake are 49 luxury home sites (from 4 to 9 acres) selling for $500,000 to $600,000 each.

    Over the the life of the project, the lots could be worth $250,000 to Mount Evans Hospice.

  • Cactus Jack's serving lessons in eco-responsibility

    Quick! Name an Earth-friendly business in the mountain area. If you said Cactus Jack’s Saloon & Grill, give yourself a green star.

    In an industry not often associated with ecological innovation, Cactus Jack’s owners, Gary and Megan Mitchell, are fast transforming their downtown Evergreen watering hole into a model of environmentally conscious efficiency.

    “We’re trying to lead by example,” says Megan. “It’s not only great for the community; it saves us money.”

    Just in time for the festive spring break season, two Evergreen liquor stores were cited for selling alcohol to a minor during a Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office sting operation conducted March 19 and 20.

    The sheriff’s directed operations unit performed compliance checks at 38 liquor-licensed businesses countywide, sending under-age buyers in to try their luck. Of 38 establishments tested, 20 sold booze to the young scouts, a noncompliance rate of 52 percent.

  • Evergreen office supply store D&J closing doors

    Evergreen’s small businesses are about to lose an important resource and, worse, an old friend.

    After 15 years providing efficient and personalized service from her Evergreen North Shopping Center storefront, D&J Office Supply owner Lori Mason is folding up her tent and moving on. To understand why, one need only look to the usual suspects.

  • Clothing recycler gives duds a second chance

    There’s been a sudden proliferation of used-clothing receptacles about town, many of them advertised as charitable enterprises. Roberto Feuereisen, on the other hand, hopes to make Evergreen’s castoffs pay.

    “We’re a very, very small company,” Feuereisen says. I paint the boxes, I place the boxes, I empty the boxes, I clean the boxes. You want to see my office? It’s my house.”

  • Habitat resale store closes

    After nearly 10 years, the volunteers, donors and customers of the Blue Spruce Habitat for Humanity Resale Emporium said goodbye to the store on Saturday, Feb. 23.

    The store’s management said it wanted to thank all who have worked, donated or shopped at the store.

  • Evergreen Crafters moves during renovation

    After 60 years in the same downtown Evergreen location, Evergreen Crafters has moved across the street, where it is sharing the space with V’s Casuals.

    Proprietor Susan Fariss, who has owned the business for four years and worked there for 27, said business on Saturday, Feb. 9, the first day in the new location, was “very good.”
