  • BUSINESS BEAT: New bakery is courting furry customers

    There’s a new bakery in Evergreen, though this one is going to the dogs — literally.

  • A roundup of ballot races

    Democrat Janet Doyle, an Evergreen resident, is running against GOP candidate Jon Keyser of Morrison and Libertarian Jack Woehr in the state House District 25 race.

    The decision of Republican state Rep. Cheri Gerou not to seek a fourth term created an opportunity for the first-time contenders in this year's elections.

  • Slice of life

    For some, it was an icky, slimy assignment. For others, it was pretty cool.
    By the end of the science class at King-Murphy Elementary School recently, the fifth-graders had a deeper appreciation for the human heart after dissecting a pig’s heart.

    “It was disgusting but good,” fourth-grader Maddison Bailey said of her first foray into dissection. “It’s like you’re doing surgery on someone.”
    “It smells like rotten bacon,” Lilli Lemascus added.

  • Parmalee 4th-grader wins Distinguished Student Award

    Maya Dawson’s teachers at Parmalee Elementary say the 10-year-old has a sunny disposition, is a great student and is wise beyond her years.

    She will tell you that she enjoys school, has a natural love of learning and sometimes puts a lot of pressure on herself to succeed.

    These traits are detailed in recommendation letters that led the Colorado Association of Gifted and Talented to present Maya with a Distinguished Student Award at its convention in Denver this week.

  • Honoring ‘the heroine of Evergreen’

    For the past 16 years, Maren Schreiber has coordinated the Special Needs Program of the Evergreen Park and Recreation District. Beginning with five youngsters when she first assumed the position, Schreiber now plans and leads activities for more than 90 people.

    Participants in her program go swimming, rafting, fishing, horseback riding, bowling — and glide across Evergreen Lake on boats. They scale the climbing wall at Buchanan Rec Center, tend a garden and take trips to places of interest.

    “We do just about everything,” says Schreiber.

  • A ringing endorsement

    Evergreen’s historic bell tower is getting a much-needed makeover, and it should be standing sentry over the east end of downtown by the end of the week.

    The nonprofit HistoriCorps brought staff and volunteers to work on the tower, which is part of the historic buildings on the Church of the Transfiguration property. The tower is 115 years old, and it was restored in 1979 by the U.S. Army Reserves, but weather exposure slowly rots the wood, and church officials were afraid the tower might fall.

  • Downtown Business Association seeking new president

    The Evergreen Downtown Business Association is launching a search to replace president Trish Wales, who resigned last week.

    Meanwhile, the association has hired Betsy Hays, former development director of the Mountain Area Land Trust, to oversee this year's annual Breakfast with Santa and the Holiday Walk in December.

  • Jeffco commissioners deny rezoning for guest-house rental in Marshdale

    Denver Realtors Renda and Luke Beard had requested the rezoning of their property on Highway 73 from mountain-residential 1 to planned development in order to rent out the 10-bedroom home on a short-term basis.
