  • Former Tanglewoods owner now taking a frank approach to sales

    A new hot-dog guy has come to Evergreen.

    Tom Becker has planted his rolling hot-dog cart — Tom’s Daily Dog — near Safeway. He loves to chat with customers, and buying a hot dog from him is quite entertaining.

  • Arts, businesses join to promote Evergreen

    A new arts group has formed with the idea of promoting the area’s artistic, historic and recreational resources as a cultural destination and artistic platform, in the way that Taos and Santa Fe have defined the arts and images of New Mexico.

  • Conifer girls eliminated from playoffs

    BOULDER — The most beautiful season in Conifer girls basketball history ended with an ugly loss March 10 at the University of Colorado’s Coors Events Center.

    The No. 2-seeded Lobos (25-2), in the Class 4A final four for the first time, seemingly couldn’t buy a basket and were methodically dismantled 59-32 by three-time defending state champion Broomfield (26-1).

  • Tent caterpillars help more than hurt wildlife

    If you are one of the many people who find tent caterpillars objectionable in your backyard, now is the time to control them.

  • Lasting lessons in true heroism

    Last week’s shootings at Deer Creek Middle School were an awful reminder of the events at Columbine and Platte Canyon.
