  • On the safe side

    Evergreen’s Safety Day on Saturday was a firefighter-wannabe’s dream.

     

    Every kid — no matter what the age — could ride in a fire truck, use a fire hose to spray a target, take a ride in a fire truck’s cherry picker high above the Evergreen Fire/Rescue Administration Building and meet real Evergreen firefighters.

    Two-year-old Tristan Roberts, dressed in his own red and yellow firefighter’s uniform, was excited to be at the annual event. He was wide-eyed at everything firefighter around him.

  • Former FBI agent weaves life experiences into suspense novel

    Don’t let the title fool you. “Strangers, Lovers and the Winds of Time” by Evergreen author Dale Lovin is far from a romance novel.

     

    Lovin’s second published work is a gritty, compelling portrait of white supremacists and their devastated victims. Written as a suspense novel interwoven with factual accounts of high-profile incidents, the book contains tales of past and present evil in American society.
