  • Evergreen window artist continues to expand her work

    Stunning works of art, both inside and out, adorn Evergreen. A mere walk down Main Street in itself is a treat, for treasured creations are literally right in front of you.

    Local artist Pamela Rhoades takes pride in her window paintings, which permeate the area. Her business, Reflections Window Painting, is blooming after becoming increasingly known in the community.

    By Christie Greene

    What’s up with that baggy skin hanging under the chin of a moose? Is it fat, maybe from eating a few too many twigs? Maybe it’s attractive to other moose. Biologists are unsure what the purpose of the bell really is, but there are many hypotheses about why the moose grows one.

    The females may judge the size of the bell, as they do the size of antlers, to determine the bull’s fitness as a mate. Perhaps it is part of the male’s mating ritual of spraying urine, which splashes onto the bell.

  • Time to come up with reasonable solution

    What if the debate over health insurance was about what we support instead of what we oppose? What if the discussion included all 535 members of Congress instead of just those who happen to belong to the party in power?
    As Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s ill-advised plan to ramrod overhaul of the Affordable Care Act through the Senate without allowing time to fully understand its ramifications failed last week, it is apparent the questions Congress is trying to answer are the wrong ones to ask.
