  • November trial date set in theft from Cub Scout pack

    The judge in the case of the former Cub Scout treasurer accused of taking funds from Evergreen Pack 39 said he would postpone the trial date, after the defendant revealed she had found a lawyer.

    The new date is Nov. 8 at 8:30 a.m., instead of Aug. 3, according to documents on file at the county courthouse.

    The pretrial conference was continued by agreement of the parties to Sept. 7 at 1 p.m.

  • Santaguida appearance continued until August

    The July 26 arraignment of Zachariah Santaguida, an Evergreen man accused of first-degree murder in the April 8 slaying of his sister, Elizabeth Santaguida, was continued until 10 a.m. Aug. 23 in Jefferson County District Court.

    Santaguida’s attorney, public defender Rob Heineman, requested the continuation pending the defendant’s ongoing psychological evaluation.

    District Judge Margie Enquist readily agreed to the request, but set Aug. 23 as the deadline to set a motions-hearing date and a trial date.

  • Evergreen’s Maes in high-profile primary fight

    One of the two most-watched contests in the Aug. 10 primary election is shaping up to be the duel between two Republicans — an Evergreen businessman and a former U.S. congressman — to take on Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper, a Democrat, for the governor’s job.

    In the other high-profile contest, Democrats will be deciding whether to send Andrew Romanoff or Michael Bennet to battle the winner of the primary contest between Republicans Jane Norton and Ken Buck for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Bennet.

  • Modern fun at Victorian-style lawn party

    Historic met modern on July 21 at the Victorian-style lawn party and concert at the Hiwan Homestead Museum.

    Some attendees were dressed in turn-of-the-century garb, while others were in shorts and flip-flops. Children played croquet and a ring-toss game while the adults gathered around the pavilion to listen to the Highline Silver Cornet Band play old-time tunes.

    Refreshments were lemonade and iced tea, with Oreos and Fig Newtons.

  • Performer sees a need to entertain, educate

    Out of habit, members of Gail Hamilton’s audience sometimes raise their hands with questions.

    But the 57-year-old performer must wait patiently for the silence to abate, and then she can respond to the voices and sounds that connect Hamilton to her audience — and her world.

    Gail Hamilton is blind.

    Hamilton, a speaker, author, singer and teacher, performed recently for residents at the Life Care Center in Evergreen and treated them to an hour of her music and wit. She teases her listeners to put them at ease.

  • Summerfest offers new things to view in 2010

    Summer is here, and Summerfest is upon us. This annual arts festival sponsored by the Center for the Arts Evergreen has become a fixture in many Coloradans’ summer schedules. 2010 should be no different. However, this year’s festival, on July 17 and 18, has many new and different features that set it apart.

  • Pot debate will keep simmering

    Legal access to marijuana in Colorado seems to be a constantly moving target. As new medical marijuana laws go into effect in our state, a number of other things are coming together as well.

    The Department of Veterans Affairs is considering a more flexible definition of post-traumatic stress disorder at virtually the same time as the state health department is being asked to add PTSD to the list of medical conditions for which medical marijuana could be prescribed. If both these things come to pass, it would liberalize access to medical marijuana for PTSD sufferers.
