  • Admiring the wisdom of our Founding Fathers

    Recently I was entertained by the Evergreen Chorale’s production of “1776.” I’m a regular at their productions, but this may be their best ever. Gary Muse’s portrayal of Ben Franklin was so good, I was sure Dr. Franklin was actually in the house.
    The show was all about the goings-on of the Continental Congress, which convened in May 1776. Of course, we all know what transpired there in Philadelphia, but we may not remember some of the details.

  • Democrats prevail on two key issues

    When Democrats claimed control of both houses of the Colorado General Assembly in last November’s elections, there was little doubt that two priority issues would be enacted once the legislature convened. Just over halfway through the 120-day session, bills to establish civil unions and to allow illegal immigrants who matriculated at Colorado high schools to receive in-state tuition at public colleges and universities in our state have passed.

  • Jeffco commissioners approve rezoning for outdoor storage, light industrial use in Bergen Park

    The Jefferson County commissioners have approved a rezoning request from Evergreen Mercantile to permit outdoor storage of RVs and light industrial use on a 4.25-acre property in Bergen Park.
    "The owners would like to change the zoning to allow a few new uses," said Doug Reed of Fine Line Consulting, who represented the developer at the hearing on March 12.  "Rezoning sets the stage for a site development plan."

  • BUSINESS BEAT: New yoga studio stretches offerings in Bergen Park

    Bergen Park has a new yoga studio in the Bergen Village shopping center.

    Called True Yoga, the studio offers 33 classes a week in both traditional and hot yoga taught by 20 instructors. It also has a retail area, and full bathrooms that include showers.

    Classes are available at all times during the day, including early morning, morning, lunchtime and evening.

    Owner Beth Pearlman is no stranger to Evergreen. She was a teacher at both Parmalee and Wilmot elementary schools before deciding to open the 1,800-square-foot studio.

  • Village Gourmet celebrates 30 years of good tastes, times

    The Village Gourmet is a shop that appeals to the senses.

    When you walk into the Bergen Park kitchenware and gift shop, your nose is greeted with the smell of fresh-brewed coffee. Samples always are available by the door.

    Your eyes see the vibrant colors of everything from dishes and kitchen gadgets to gourmet food and cookware.

    Your fingers can touch the soft towels and shiny pot and pans.

    If you walk to the back of the shop, your taste buds can partake in handmade chocolate truffles.

  • Four’s a charm at St. Pat’s fund-raiser

    It was a fitting four-leaf clover at the Rotary Club of Conifer’s fourth annual St. Patrick’s Day fund-raiser: tasty food, friendly companions, delectable drink and a worthy cause.

    St. Laurence Episcopal, which serves as a church 364 days a year, took a day off March 16 and dressed up as an Irish pub — complete with furnished tables, signs, balloons and lights strung around the walls.

    “The energy is just amazing,” said Rotary president Suzanne Barkley. “It just feels great in here.”

  • Ball bounces Lady Eagles’ way in win over Evergreen

    LAKEWOOD — Kayla Latham figured it was just a matter of time before the Dakota Ridge Lady Eagles would score. When they did — and, incidentally, it was on a goal by her — it was the momentum shift they needed in the South Jeffco Invitational.

  • Cougars thrilled with start to season

    DENVER — Considering how little his team had actually been on a baseball diamond in preparation for the 2013 season, Evergreen baseball coach Matt Erholtz could find little not to like about the Cougars’ 8-2 victory over host John F. Kennedy on March 16.
    Jack Drumright and two relievers combined on a two-hitter, and six different batters had hits in Evergreen’s second straight win. The Cougars defeated Westminster 5-0 the day before in the weather-delayed season opener behind Jake Englehart’s one-hitter.
