  • Reveling in art, music and dance at Summerfest

    From arts and crafts to music and belly dancing, the annual Summerfest at Buchanan Park last weekend offered visual and auditory enjoyment.

     

    Kids had fun at an activity center designed for them while adults looked at creations of more than 100 artists exhibiting their works at the 35th annual event, a fund-raiser for Center for the Arts Evergreen.

  • Unlikely candidates gaining traction

    The political news is surprising as two unlikely candidates are soaring in the polls. Not many would expect a self-identified socialist to challenge Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination for president, but U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders is gaining some traction. He trails her in a recent Iowa poll 52 percent to 33 percent. In New Hampshire, it’s 56 percent to 24 percent. No, he is not the front-runner, but his strong numbers are very surprising, and Clinton must be looking over her shoulder.

  • July is a good time to learn hummingbird differences

    Many people have reported to me that the ruby-throated hummingbirds have returned.

    Still others tell me rufous hummingbirds are back and not as feisty as usual. All of these people mean well, but they are somewhat confused about our fascinating hummingbirds.

  • Erholtz’s need is filled with 5K

    Typically, Brandy Erholtz doesn’t run 5Ks. It’s nothing personal, but the 37-year-old Evergreen resident via Minnesota is more into longer distances, like the World Long Distance Mountain Running Championships, which she ran the week prior in Zermatt, Switzerland.

  • Cougars’ Borsa, Formanek embrace chance to play in the All-State game

  • First-timers up for Triple Bypass

    Eight years ago, Craig Warner got back into cycling. It was the first time that he’d ridden since he was about 14, and he’s never ridden in the mountains ever.
    Yet, there was the 70-year-old Mingo, Iowa, resident at Bergen Park with his helmet strapped on and his bike ready to go at 6:30 a.m. on July 11, preparing to ride the 120 miles that is the first day of the two-day Triple Bypass.

  • BUSINESS BEAT: Scrumptious food for thought

    The owner of the new French bakery/café in El Rancho has a personality that is as appetizing as the items in her dessert cases.

    Oksana Romanoff, a Russian-born chef and baker who moved to the United States two years ago and Evergreen recently, is honest, passionate and a perfectionist, and she doesn’t mince words about the types of food she is creating for her new Evergreen audience at Kseni Mademoiselle.

  • Area EMS, fire departments pay tribute to Flight For Life pilot killed in crash

    Evergreen and Clear Creek County emergency responders stationed fire trucks and ambulances at overpasses along Interstate 70 last Thursday in tribute to Patrick Mahany, a Flight For Life Colorado pilot killed in a helicopter crash on July 3 in Frisco.

    As a procession for Mahany traveled from Lakewood to Summit County, area fire and EMS personnel honored the veteran helicopter pilot who died when his aircraft went down in the parking lot at St. Anthony Summit Medical Center.

  • Community members can sign card to support Flight for Life

    Members of the Evergreen community can sign a card this week to show support for Flight for Life in the wake of last week's fatal helicopter crash in Frisco.

    The accident, which happened Friday near St. Anthony Summit Medical Center, killed 64-year-old pilot Patrick Mahany of Silverthorne. Dave Repsher, 45, a flight paramedic who also was on board, remained in critical condition early this week.

  • ‘Vegetables most likely to succeed’

    Evergreen gardeners who plant cool-season crops such as leafy greens, peas and potatoes have a good chance of success, said Christine Crouse, Clear Creek County extension service director.

    Speaking at the Evergreen Garden Club Expo recently, Crouse focused on “vegetables most likely to succeed” in the mountain climate with a short growing season. Root crops such as beets, carrots, radishes and onions are good choices for area gardeners, along with kale, chard, spinach, cabbage and Brussels sprouts, she said.
