  • Debating Obama’s Iran policy

    By Hannah Hayes

    For 30 years Iran has slowly been staging a rebellion. The recent election and demonstrations may be a turning point for those with legitimate grievances against the repressive mullahs. It is unclear to what degree there was voter fraud, yet students, women and the middle class have certainly raised profound issues while risking everything. Unfortunately, there is not yet a sufficient coalition present that unites these groups of revolutionaries with labor, military, ethnic groups and oil producers.

  • Conifer Rotary kicks off peach of a fund-raiser

    It’s summertime, and people’s thoughts naturally turn to Colorado peaches.

    The Conifer Rotary again is selling boxes of peaches from the Western Slope to raise money for its philanthropic projects.

    The peaches this year will be from High Country Farms and will cost $35 per box. The peaches will be available for pick-up between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Aug. 28 in the parking lot by Copy Copy in Aspen Park.

  • Many interesting sights in Seattle

    Recently, my wife and I took a week-long trip to Seattle.

    At this point, you’re probably asking yourself ‘Why Seattle?’ It seemed that was a popular question from friends and family after we began telling people about our summer plans.

    The short answer to that question is that we both have always been interested in seeing the Emerald City; and we were able to find really cheap plane tickets.

    The trip was amazing. The weather was great, staying around 80 degrees and it only rained once, believe it or not.

  • Cougars booted

    BROOMFIELD — Evergreen’s start to the Central Colorado Baseball League’s Bottom-A final tournament was nearly flawless.

    Thanks to great situational hitting and solid pitching from Caleb Garbus, the Cougars steamrolled Northglenn 11-1 in six innings on July 16 at Legacy High School.

    Unfortunately for Evergreen, things went straight downhill from there as they lost 10-7 to host Legacy later in the day and were knocked out of the double-elimination tournament in a rematch with Northglenn on July 17, where they dropped a 3-0 decision.

  • EHS grads to reunite Sunday at annual old-timers picnic

    Attention, Evergreen High School graduates: The EHS old-timers reunion is July 25.

    The old-timers reunion comes in the form of a picnic and has been an annual event for more than 20 years, according to its coordinator, Lois Arnold. This year’s reunion will be from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Evergreen Lutheran Church, 5980 Highway 73.

    Not just EHS graduates and their families are invited. Arnold said the entire community should join in the potluck lunch. Just bring a dish and meet graduates from many decades past.

  • Local teens’ Nassau mission an eye-opening un-vacation

    Usually conducted in the world’s less organized quarters, mission work requires a degree of flexibility. As the 14 local kids who traveled to Nassau last month to bring emotional comfort and spiritual support to impoverished Bahamians stricken with the HIV virus learned, it can also demand a strong back and an iron constitution.

  • Pet psychic: Reading Rover's mind

    It was a chaotic day at Dogma pet store near Walmart on Saturday.

    The Saint Bernard Rescue dogs and their foster parents milled around the parking lot, looking for permanent owners. Standing quietly near the chaos was Megan Riley. Riley bills herself as a clairvoyant, psychic, healer and medium. She spent 10 minutes with each dog owner to help them understand the animals.

    Simply put, Riley says she communicates with animals.

  • Safeway loses liquor license for three days

    The Evergreen Safeway’s liquor license was suspended for three days this past weekend because the store violated Colorado liquor laws.

    All of the beer was pulled from the shelves from Friday through Sunday in compliance with the suspension.

    The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office performed what it calls a liquor sales compliance operation at Safeway and several other liquor-selling establishments on May 16. A cashier at the Evergreen Safeway sold beer to an underage person who works for the sheriff’s office, said Jim Shires, sheriff’s spokesman.

  • ‘Escanaba in da Moonlight’ shines brightly

    Colorado is a long way from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan — the “U.P.,” for short. But when it comes to humor, Coloradans aren’t all that far away from Yoopers. Let’s face it — four crusty hunters, some Native American moonshine and a load of flatulence can make even the most prim of the populace giggle. And giggle is what you’ll do when the Evergreen Players open “Escanaba in da Moonlight” on July 10.
