    The holiday season is all about giving. We spend hours choosing just the right gift to bring a smile to our loved ones’ faces.

  • A happy Hiwan Christmas

    While many people were strolling along Main Street during Friday’s annual Holiday Walk, others took a respite from the hustle and bustle to spend time in the Hiwan Homestead a short walk away.
    They were treated to a tour of the home, cookies, cider and even chestnuts roasting on an open fire.
    Rod Matlock, bundled up to keep out the cold, was cooking chestnuts outside the homestead on a wood grill. He said he’s spent 18 years cooking chestnuts for the event, and he remembers much chillier — and stormier — nights.

    How large a pattern, exactly?

  • Green glory

     People in Evergreen are not only eating their vegetables, they are eating more of them all the time, and even raving about them.

    In fact, if people are talking about their vegetables, it's probably a clue they have embraced the burgeoning industry of community-supported agriculture.

    A CSA is like a food co-op in that members pool their funds in advance of the growing season to pay for a share of seasonal produce generated by a local farm, orchard or some other food provider.
