  • A splish-splashin’ good time

    The Fourth of July signifies freedom and patriotic pride, but for the town of Indian Hills, it’s also about water — and lots of it.

    Halfway through the town’s annual Independence Day parade, American flags are traded in for water guns and hoses, and a huge community-wide water fight breaks out.

    The firefighters spray residents with their hoses, and residents fight back with squirt guns. It’s fun for all, and the event attracts people from across the mountain area.

    Jenn Dougherty traveled from Conifer for the parade.

  • IMHS raises funds with inaugural hike-a-thon

    A year into its bid to find a new home, the Intermountain Humane Society is holding a fund-raiser that’s akin to Denver’s annual Furry Scurry.

    The inaugural Trails-for-Tails Hike-a-thon will take place Sunday, July 23, at Staunton State Park and will include everything from a presentation from a park ranger to T-shirts and door prizes.

  • Redskin Fire near Bailey contained, evacuation orders lifted

  • Date set for next year’s REVEL Rockies races

    A date has been set for next year’s REVEL Rockies.

    The half- and full-marathon races, which end in downtown Morrison, will be June 3 — a week earlier than in 2017. This is, in part, because the IRONMAN event will be held in Boulder on June 10, and Colorado State Patrol will have a lot of its officers in Boulder for the triathlon.

  • DPD investigating hit-and-run at Red Rocks

    A driver has been taken into custody after reportedly crashing into two pedestrians and multiple cars in the lower south parking lot at Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre last Thursday night.

    Two female pedestrians, who had just left a performance from Pink Martini and the Colorado Symphony Orchestra, were struck just before 10:30 p.m. at the Morrison venue. One of the women suffered minor injuries, while the other was uninjured. Neither was taken to the hospital.

  • Fire chief Weege receives pay raise

    Evergreen Fire Chief Mike Weege will receive a 2.5 percent salary raise, following his annual performance review by the Evergreen Fire Protection District board earlier this summer.

    While board President John Anderson declined to list specific highlights about Weege’s performance during the last year, he said the board was happy with his leadership.

  • Music festival donates $2,400 to high school performing arts

    Thanks to an inaugural partnership, Evergreen Music Festival has donated $2,400 of its event proceeds to Evergreen High School’s performing arts department.

    The school’s choir, band and theater programs provided 50 volunteers, who spent a total of 150 hours at the July 4 festival at Buchanan Fields.

    Jackie Mohr, the festival’s volunteer coordinator, described the partnership as a perfect marriage between the two entities, which is the first of its kind in the festival’s 28-year history.

  • Venue Theatre Company expands programs, adds new staff

  • 5-year-old Evergreen girl an inspiration for others fighting cystic fibrosis

    By all outward appearances, Sloan Scott is a typical 5-year-old: Her artwork is displayed on the walls of her playroom, she’s a soccer player, she loves reading books and she loves being outside.

    But on the inside, Sloan battles cystic fibrosis every day, and last week, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation sent a photographer to Evergreen to capture photos of Sloan being a regular kid. The photos will be used on CFF’s website and in promotional materials.
