  • Local Realtors to join in Nationwide Open House Weekend

    Evergreen Realtors are joining forces to give prospective buyers a weekend of concentrated house-hunting just before the expanded $8,000 homebuyer tax-credit benefit expires on April 30.

    During Nationwide Open House Weekend, April 10 and 11, sellers across the country will open homes to prospective buyers in hopes of giving sales a big boost while interest rates are still low and the tax credit is still in effect.

    Participating open houses can be identified by blue Realtor balloons and signs.

  • Bergen students keep history under their hats

    Sometimes history can be tedious to elementary school students as they wade through facts and figures, names and dates to get to the heart of the issues involved.

    Fifth-grade teachers at Bergen Valley Elementary School have tried something new to spur their students’ interest in the colonial period in American history — a hat fashion show.

  • Off to see the wizard

    The Parmalee Elementary School gymnasium was bustling with activity recently as about 30 students and a cadre of parents worked to perfect the school musical, “Oz.”

    Students are the main characters in a musical that is based on “The Wizard of Oz” but has a few twists on the beloved tale and new music, according to Christine Gaudreau, the school’s music teacher and director of the play.

  • Support gets rolling for bowling alley in Albertsons

    Nearly all of the neighbors and members of the public who turned out for a community meeting March 24 had positive things to say about converting the old Albertsons supermarket into a bowling alley and fun center for all ages.

    About 30 people attended the meeting at Bergen Park Church on Highway 65 at 6 p.m.

    At 5:30, only a handful of chairs were set up in the community room as the organizers expected a small crowd, but eventually the small room filled to standing room only, and a few people listened in from the attached kitchen.

  • ‘Shakespeare (abridged)’ spans hilarious moments

    An evening of fun for the many people in merry old England was a night at the Globe Theatre. Peasants and princes alike gathered to share in the raucous festivities of a Shakespearean masterpiece. And raucous it was — with boos and cheers, the groundlings packed into the pit with tickets priced at a penny a piece, and the actors addressing the audience every step of the way.

    In the spirit of the Globe Theatre’s festive frolics through the Bard’s canon, the Evergreen Players are present “The Complete Works of Shakespeare (abridged).”

  • Springtime brings a variety of returning birds

    It is just about dark on Thursday, March 18, and I have been standing out by the carport listening for the evening song of a robin.

    It has been a warm, hazy, partially cloudy spring-like day. Oddly enough, it has not dropped below freezing yet, but I expect it soon will. The weathermen on all the TV stations have been forecasting snow tonight. So, it looks like the first day of spring, March 20, will once more be snowy, which will probably be long gone by the time you receive this paper.
