    For many, there also is a rush of adrenaline, and maybe — for some — a bit of fear.

    As Taylor VanAllen harnesses himself in, removes his shoes, balances on a 1-inch piece of webbing and takes his first step away from solid ground, he draws on these very feelings. Despite more than seven years of practice, the 26-year-old slackliner is not without fear.

  • Inaugural Evergreen Lake paddleboard race was a win

    Despite only having paddleboarded twice, I was excited to see the Evergreen Park & Recreation District hosting the inaugural paddleboard races Saturday morning. So excited, in fact, that I asked my editor if I could cover the races from a first-person perspective — that is, as a participant.

  • Inter-Canyon Fire District switching financial institutions

    The Inter-Canyon Fire Protection District will switch financial institutions in an attempt to stop fraudulent withdrawals from the district’s Wells Fargo checking account.
    Although Wells Fargo reimbursed all of the money, Inter-Canyon’s board of directors determined it had no choice but to make a change.  
    “The account is definitely contaminated,” Karl Firor, Inter-Canyon’s treasurer, said of the Wells Fargo account. “(The bank) caught them. We obviously stopped them, but we need to stop this account.”

    All lanes of Interstate 70 are open Thursday afternoon near Floyd Hill after a burning RV had earlier shut down both sides of the highway.

  • Fourth of July set to music at annual festival

    If one can’t enjoy the music of fireworks filling the night sky on Independence Day, then why not enjoy actual music?

While there were a few newcomers to the festival’s lineup this year, most have grown accustomed to spending their Fourth of July playing in Evergreen.
