  • Evergreen Kitchen and Bath celebrates 20 years

    Marion Patterson says the past two decades have flown by, and in that time she’s designed more kitchens and baths than she can count as owner of the Kitchen and Bath Center in Evergreen.

    “No two projects are alike, and it’s never boring,” Patterson said of her business in Evergreen North, the shopping center between Safeway and the post office. “Every room is different, and clients are different. The way people approach things is different.”

  • Business’ new owners were given a sign

    Mark Hollandsworth’s life is all about destiny.

    It was destiny that made a deal in Joplin, Mo., fall through, so he didn’t move his sign business out of his home. It was destiny that spared his daughter from a tornado that tore through Joplin last year.

    And, most importantly, it was destiny that brought him through Evergreen on vacation, where he met Chris and Sue Krieg, the owners of Evergreen Sign Co. The Kriegs sold Evergreen Signs to the Hollandsworths last month.

  • Food vendors face new regulations at farmers markets

    The upscale food-court atmosphere that prevails at so many farmers markets has prompted Jeffco health authorities to impose stricter regulations on food vendors selling items typically offered at restaurants.

    Some small-business operators are complaining, and some are choosing to take their offerings elsewhere.

    Vendors selling what are called potentially hazardous food items — such as burritos, tamales, pizza slices, hamburgers and salads — for immediate consumption must submit a plan to health authorities first and obtain a $255 mobile unit license.

  • Free service handles disposal of no-longer-needed drugs

    Finding a place to properly dispose of unused medications no longer has to be a such a hassle, thanks to a free disposal drop box recently installed in the pharmacy department at the King Soopers in Bergen Park.

  • Dick’s Hickory Dock to be renamed Switchback Smokehouse

    Dick’s Hickory Dock in Kittredge has a new owner and is getting a new moniker.

    The barbecue restaurant should be open by May and will be called Switchback Smokehouse, according to its new owner Darryl Swarts.
