  • Economic development council formed for downtown businesses

    A group of downtown business owners and property owners has voted to create an Economic Development Council to give the business district a voice and a vehicle to make improvements.
    “We have a cool downtown,” said Dean Dalvit. “But if we don’t do something, it will all fall apart.”
    Dalvit is an architect and owner of the Mountain Village buildings in Evergreen. He also is a member of the Evergreen Downtown Business Association, which is establishing the Economic Development Council.

  • History repeats itself, and repeats itself, at Mountain Man Rendezvous event

    Long before the prospectors, before the lumberjacks, before the ranchers and settlers and tourists and commuters, there were the mountain men.
    “I don’t know what that is,” mused one such colorfully attired personage, Coyote Bob by name, leaning on his musket beneath the tall pines of Heritage Grove and doing an excellent job shrugging off the 21st century like a flea-ridden army blanket. “We called ourselves mountaineers or trappers. They didn’t start calling us ‘mountain men’ until the 1860s and those penny novels.”

    More safety measures needed for boating at Evergreen Lake

    Editor:

    I read your incredible story with pictures of the Hunter family and their grandchildren about to drop off the dam. Also a plea from Dan Markey for greater safety in using the boats. This family was very fortunate that calm heads were present. I would certainly think that safety would be the most important factor in the use of boats on the lake.

  • Crows are something to crow about

    When we moved here in 1965, crows were officially named the “common crow.” But, they were definitely not common in Evergreen, except in winter. Summer crows in the mountains were few and far between.

  • Potter fired up about education
