  • A budding career comes into focus

    Morgan Wolfers’ picture of a spotted tiger moth and its pearl-like eggs is the kind of image you expect from a seasoned photographer: clean, micro-focused, incredibly detailed.

    But the image betrays both an illusion of size and years of experience.

    At 10 years old, the Conifer youth has accomplished what some photographers might only dream of: His work is on display at the Washington, D.C., home of Vice President Joe Biden.

  • Sculpture competition focuses kids' artistic skills

    Some young Evergreen students proved they have solid artistic skills Friday night at a Sculpture Evergreen art contest reception at Evergreen National Bank.

    Kai Bianco is finding his independence.

    The little boy, who was bitten in the head by the family dog when he was 9 months old, turned 3 on Tuesday.

    Kai went to a playground near his Evergreen home with his parents, Brandon Bianco and Shelby Foley, and they talked about his progress.

  • EMS students take the right steps on Day Without Hate

    If dance is a universal language, then Evergreen Middle School students spoke it eloquently during an assembly last month.

    Students learned African dance movements from a Boulder-based group called Logo Ligi as the culmination of the Day Without Hate.

    “I always say that the best way to get rid of stereotypes and prejudices is to have a relationship with people,” said world languages teacher Kim Parfitt.

    This was the fifth time Parfitt brought the group to EMS in the last four years, and she says Logo Ligi is always well received.

    Editor’s note: The Canyon Courier is following three people hoping to complete the Evergreen Fire/Rescue academy to get their firefighting certification. This is the first in a series of stories about what it takes to become a firefighter.

    Imagine Evergreen Fire/Rescue personnel as being similar to pied pipers: They try to lead as many as possible down the path to become firefighters.

    Evergreen High School’s new principal has a familiar face. And so does EHS’s new athletic director.

    Assistant principal Brandon Brekke has been hired to take the top spot, while current principal Ryan Alsup will be the new athletic director.

  • House wrens working their way into the foothills

    (Reprinted from May 30, 2012)

    The little brown house wren has been part of my life for as long as I can remember. They always nested in a box in our yard on the farm where I grew up, and they were common nesting birds in most every yard in the village.
