  • 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.

  • Cars vandalized during Marshdale prayer meeting

    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.

    Someone poured a gel-based paint stripper on the vehicles while people were attending the meeting, the sheriff said in a news release. Obscenities were scratched into the paint on two of the vehicles, according to a person who was in attendance.

  • County commissioners approve resolution opposing gun control

  • 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.”

  • Bender, Cougars owning slopes

    For more than 60 years Warren Miller movies have used silly commentary run over the top of exciting and dynamic video footage to inspiring snow lovers to try new things and push their limits.
    Eighteen-year-old Evergreen senior and reigning boys giant slalom alpine ski champion Jake Bender loves Miller’s movies. In fact, his whole team does. So it’s no coincidence that they watch them in the charter bus on their way to competitions.
