  • Bird feeders, plus native plants and shrubs, will attract birds

     A long-time summer resident recently asked by writing to me via the High Timber Times if I would write an article on how she could attract birds to the yard of her summer cabin near Hangen Ranch.

     

    This is a subject that can’t be properly covered in an article of the usual length for it must cover feeding supplemental food, and planting native shrubs and non-native shrubs that will bear food that attracts birds. She does not say what her property is like: open, forested or creekside, or whether she has a flower or vegetable garden.

  • Keeping the balls in the air

    Balls, scarves and rings flew through the air last week as Wilmot Elementary School students learned the art of juggling.

  • Recycling at King Soopers continues with minor change

    The 4EverGreen recycling center at King Soopers in Bergen Park is continuing to provide service to residents in the community.
    EDS Waste Solutions is operating the center, as it has in the past, with one minor change.

    Seventeen vehicles were vandalized while parked at a prayer service at The Barn at Evergreen Memorial Park in Marshdale on Jan. 29, according the Jeffco sheriff.

  • Lost cow found — and sent to market

    A wayward cow that wandered through Evergreen for a few months was found and fattened up for market, said owner Hal Choate.

    The cow escaped from Choate's ranch shortly after he bought her seven months ago. During the summer, people spotted her at various locations including Taco Bell, Walgreens and the Safeway parking lot.

    With help from neighbor Bill Finger, who agreed to erect a pen on his property, Choate was able to round up the cow and take her to market a couple of weeks ago.

  • Distributing information HootSuite

    “We want our information now. The demand comes from human nature,” John Spalvins said while talking about the Internet.

     

    A video producer, Spalvins was one of the presenters at the Evergreen Area Chamber of Commerce’s social media workshop last Thursday.

    “Facebook is a great way to connect,” Spalvins said.

    Using videos on websites is a powerful way to connect with clients, he continued.

    “As clients search a Facebook page, they are going to be attracted to photography and videos.”
