  • Get outside and help eradicate weeds at Evergreen Lake

    I don’t know where the month of May went, but it just disappeared with the spring snow.

    Now we are well into the month of June and the annual Community Weed Day is this coming Saturday, June 11.

    This is a very special day, open to the public and one of the few things that is still free. Community Weed Day is held on Saturday from 8 to 11 a.m. in the park on the Lake House lawn. It is co-sponsored by Evergreen Audubon, the local Mount Evans chapter of the Sierra Club, the Evergreen Garden Club, and the Evergreen Park and Recreation District.

  • A daring rescue after dark

    The Alpine Rescue Team of Evergreen is one of five Colorado search and rescue teams that won a Valor Award from a national association, for saving the life of a man with a broken leg near the top of 14,201-foot Crestone Needle, one of the most dangerous peaks in Colorado.

    The peak is 56 miles southwest of Pueblo, or about a five-hour drive from Evergreen.

    “People die on it every year. It’s very steep,” said Paul “Woody” Woodward, who was on the rescue mission July 27-28, 2009, along with eight other members of the Alpine Rescue Team.

  • A hail of a storm

    The hail that ripped into Evergreen last Friday was pea-sized and slushy, for the most part. But in some areas the precipitation was pebble-sized and icy, generating dozens of calls to insurance agents about dented cars, chipped window frames, battered decks, broken skylights and pockmarked siding.

    The damage in Evergreen was moderate, considering the amount of hail that came down. The extent of the roof damage is hard to evaluate until the adjusters get a chance to inspect the aftermath, insurance agents said.

    Health provider Kaiser Permanente of Colorado says it will open its new medical office in Evergreen in an office complex that houses U.S. Bank and Nick’s Pro Fitness at 2942 Evergreen Parkway.

    The space will have 4,900 square feet on the first floor and will open in the fall. Kaiser first announced its intention to move into the Evergreen market in February.

    The new office will focus on primary care services, including internal medicine and family practice. There will be two physicians at first, with room for a third in the future.

  • Kind souls team up to fix immigrant’s broken body

    In his native Myanmar, So Reh had two serious strikes against him.

    The first was the current regime’s iron-fisted attempts to coerce social harmony within its troubled borders. As a practicing Christian, the married father of four was effectively disqualified from all but the lowest-paying jobs, forcing him to choose between abandoning his pacifist beliefs for military service, or letting his family go hungry.

  • Hailstorm makes a hash of garden tour; event postponed till next year

    Bloodbath. Melee. Destruction.

    That’s the description that Evergreen Garden Club president Tina Kellogg gave to the damage wrought on area gardens by the hailstorm that passed through Evergreen on June 11.

    The destructive hail, which fell inches deep in some areas and brought snowplows out to clear the roads, caused so much damage that the club has decided to cancel its 11th biennial garden tour, scheduled for June 26.

  • Truck overturns on Highway 74 near Morrison

    A truck hauling dirt overturned Wednesday morning on Highway 74 about 2 miles west of Morrison, closing one lane of the road for much of the morning. The driver apparently was not hurt.

    Foothills Fire/Rescue responded to the accident, which occurred about 7:30 a.m. Foothills personnel were allowing traffic to alternate in each direction during the cleanup, which continued throughout the morning.

    Traffic in the canyon already was slowed in recent days by a highway re-striping project that stretched all the way to Evergreen.
