  • New Shanghai restaurant closes after 31 years

    New Shanghai restaurant, an Evergreen landmark for more than 30 years, closed its doors forever Saturday, May 24.

    Jim Lui became owner of New Shanghai in 2002 after he bought out his partner and brother-in-law, Bill Hsu, who moved to California.

    New Shanghai was known for its authentic Chinese, Japanese and Vietnamese cuisine and its homemade sauces.

    New Shanghai becomes the second longtime Evergreen eatery to close in recent months, a result of intensifying competition. Stroh’s Restaurant and Saloon downtown closed Feb. 24 after 26 years.

  • Lifelong ascent: Witwer ends time as legislator, but his drive to scale challenges remains

    When Rob Witwer looks at a mountain, he doesn't see an obstacle — he sees an opportunity.

    "No matter how big of a challenge you have, it starts with a single step," said Witwer, an avid climber and hiker. "If you look at a mountain, it seems so large and so insurmountable — you can't conceive of how you're going to get to the top. It's the same thing with a public policy challenge."
