  • Grass fire contained to 2 acres in Indian Hills

    A grass fire in Indian Hills on Tuesday is a reminder that even though it’s mid-October, it’s still summertime dry and wildfires remain a danger.

    The 2-acre fire broke out about 4 p.m. near the 5200 block of Parmalee Gulch Road in Indian Hills, according to Indian Hills Fire Chief Don Schoenbein.

    “The cause of the fire is still under investigation,” Schoenbein said. “We believe it was human caused, but we don’t think it was intentionally set.”

  • Casting about for a meaningful message

    A foundry is an alchemical studio where metal is melted and art is created. Long ago, an opportunity presented itself to assist in pourings for sculptor Raphael Martini. My friends and I were eager to participate. The process was hot, heavy and riveting. When an Evergreen neighbor started building a sculpture studio in his backyard, I was intrigued.

  • Remember, raccoons are wild animals

    Well, I’ve done it again. Once a klutz, always a klutz. Seems like every few years, lately, I have to go tumbling around, either spraining or breaking something.

    This time it’s a broken right wrist. How these things happen so quickly amazes me, but of course, if you had time to think about it, they wouldn’t happen.

  • A march to excellence

    This year’s Evergreen High School marching band is the little band that could.

    Its motto easily could be, “I think I can; I think I can.”

    After overcoming some difficult challenges over the past few years, the band and color guard with 62 students are going to the state competition in Grand Junction this weekend for the first time in six years.

    And all it took was a little confidence, according to Wiley Cruse, the school’s new instrumental music teacher.

  • Dog day afternoon: Evergreen resident Ruth Crosson, 92, displays miniature figurines

    Ruth Crosson of Evergreen has had a lifelong love of dogs — so much so that she has collected more than 700 miniature dog figurines.

    Crosson, 92, put half her collection on display at Green Ridge Meadow Apartments on Saturday as her farewell to the animals she knows so well. She put out pieces that were less breakable than others, so children could touch them.

    She says that, at her age, she needs to find a new home for the animals, and she’s hoping that the Denver Museum of Miniatures, Dolls and Toys will take the entire collection.
