  • EMS kids canvass heartland for cancer fund-raiser

    When Evergreen Middle School teacher Chet Andes bicycles from Denver, Colo., to Denver, Pa., this summer to benefit the Lance Armstrong Foundation for cancer research, he can expect a warm reception at nearly every village, town and city along the 2,000-mile route. For that, he can thank the several teams of industrious EMS eighth-graders who spent the last two months paving a way through America’s heartland.

  • Sugar and spice

    When you need to make a whole lot of cookies fast, call a Brownie.

    Kay Bohan did, and the small troop of ponytailed volunteers who reported to the Lutheran Church of the Cross on Saturday morning, March 15, helped make this year’s Soldier Bake the sweetest one yet.

  • Affordable housing plan gains ground

    It’s a regrettable fact of mountain-area life that many of the folks who help make living west of the Hogback so agreeable can’t afford to live here. But, thanks to the persistent efforts of a few Evergreen residents and the fortunate involvement of nonprofit Rocky Mountain Housing Development Co., that could soon begin to change.

  • Kids, commuters affected by storm

    Whether the two-day snowstorm that dropped more than a half-foot of winter across the mountain area on March 16 and 17 constituted a bane or a boon is a matter of perspective.

  • King-Murphy launching IB program

    Already one of the highest-performing primary schools in the state, King-Murphy Elementary School is shooting for the world.

  • Mountain real estate a buyer's game

    After treading water in 2006, the Evergreen real estate market showed some signs of recovery in 2007, but the modest increase in average selling price was offset by the fact that houses are taking longer to sell and the number of houses sold is declining.

    Realtors agree the current Evergreen area market from Bergen Park to Conifer is a buyer’s market, meaning interests rates are attractive and there are deals to be had. On the seller’s side, prices aren’t setting records, but they aren’t declining much, either.

  • Psychic fair materializes in Morrison

    With sidewalks covered in hoary frost and streets coated with several layers of mean slush, Morrison roads saw only the very brave or senseless the morning of Sunday, March 2.

    It didn’t take a rocket scientist to realize it was a better day to stay inside watching reruns of “Magnum P.I.” than to venture out on those dangerous roads to explore mysteries of an entirely different kind.

  • Rock of Ages

    Venerable hymns like “Michael, Row the Boat Ashore” and “Bringing in the Sheaves” are fine in their own quaint, antebellum way, but many of today’s younger set get more spiritual kick from the pop charts.

  • A song for the asking

    With all due respect to the sentimental versifiers at Hallmark, an off-the-shelf greeting card can’t always adequately convey one’s true love and/or esteem. But Vicki Wind can, and then some.

  • Faulty heating unit prompts evacuation in Bergen Park

    On Thursday, March 6, a whiff of acrid smoke prompted a partial evacuation of the Bergen Village Shopping Center.

    About 10 a.m., employees of Countrywide Home Loans detected the telltale metallic scent of an electrical fire. As most personnel fled the office, one employee dialed 911 and, at the urging of Evergreen Fire/Rescue dispatch, activated the alarm system, resulting in the general evacuation of the two-story commercial building.
