  • When picking a hometown, schools matter

    These life events just keep marching on. Our baby turns 21 next week.

    Since we moved to Evergreen almost 18 years ago, we’ve been through a lot of milestones. Two kids started school. Three kids completed elementary school, middle school and high school. Three kids had bat-mitzvahs. I turned 40 … and then 50 … and then more. (Luckily my wife is ageless and avoided these milestones.) We celebrated a silver wedding anniversary. Two kids graduated from college, one cum laude and as a member of Phi Beta Kappa.

  • Nob Hill residents protest plans for lighted billboard at El Rancho

    Nob Hill residents are protesting plans for a large lighted billboard on property near Interstate 70 in El Rancho that is owned by a sign company.

    Steve Richards, president of Mile High Outdoor, has submitted an application to Jeffco Planning and Zoning for rezoning to permit a 700-square-foot billboard on his 7-acre property that borders U.S. 40. If rezoning is approved and the billboard installed, digital messages would appear at 8-second intervals on both sides of it.

  • Evergreen Music Fest marks July Fourth at Buchanan Park

    From classical to jazz and country, lively tunes filled the mountain air at the annual Evergreen Music Festival and Art Show on July 4.

  • July Fourth is wet and wild in Indian Hills

    The super-soaker water guns came out early for the time-honored water fight at the annual July Fourth parade in Indian Hills.

    Kids riding on an Indian Hills Fire Rescue water truck had their red war paint on and their water guns ready, one girl pumping hers up as the truck moved into the prime water zone near the post office. Parade-goers on both sides of the road had their water balloons and plastic water bottles ready.

  • Evergreen’s matriarch, Louise Stransky Hendryx, dies at 103

    By Burdette “Bud” Weare, For the Courier

    The five-generation Stransky family has lost the last of its original Evergreen settlers, the town has lost a precious part of its pioneer history, and humankind has lost a lovely soul.

    Following a brief illness, Louise Stransky Hendryx died June 30, 2015, at her creekside home in lower Evergreen. She was 103.

  • A party at the finish line

    There’s nothing quite like a party done Evergreen style.

    The party after the Freedom Run on Saturday definitely fit the bill: a sea of blue T-shirts worn by the nearly 1,000 participants in the 5K run/walk, and red T-shirts worn by hundreds of volunteers who made the race and party happen.

    How fitting for the 34th annual July 4 morning tradition that benefits Mount Evans Home Health Care & Hospice.
