  • Eagle sighted at Evergreen Lake must be looking for a mate

    Many people have reported the sighting of an adult bald eagle that has visited Evergreen Lake several times this summer. I even saw it myself when a friend was driving me down Highway 74 one day last week.

    The eagle was too high and it was poorly lighted, so I could not actually see its white head and tail, but I knew it was an eagle by the soaring bird’s very flat appearance. They look like they were cut out of a piece of cardboard. Red-tailed hawks and other large birds that you might confuse it with have must more bend in their wings.

  • AEDs saving lives in Evergreen area

    It wasn't by chance that at least three people who suffered heart attacks were saved by AEDs in the last two years in the Evergreen area.
