    It is a fine summer evening. I am sitting on the patio, trying to write this article and cool off after another hot day and a rain shower. The cooler air is refreshing, and I can see many wildflowers in bloom in the yard. I really miss being able to get out for walks in the woods but can’t tote my oxygen tank, and the woodland way is too uneven, tilted and rough, for me to traverse safely. So, I try to be content with what I can see from the patio and car port.

  • Jazz Fest honors best of the genre, best of Evergreen

    The genre of music we call jazz has been described as “the infinite art of improvisation.” The true beauty of jazz is that this spirit of improvisation extends beyond the page — beyond musical stylings — to the musicians themselves.

  • Wildcats rally, end Cougars’ season

    ARVADA — It wasn’t that Jake Englehart wasn’t denying Arvada West its just due. It’s just that the Evergreen pitcher shouldered most of the blame for his team’s 7-5 loss on July 23 at Pomona High School’s Bart Mapps Field.

    The loss ended the Cougars’ run in the double-elimination, season-ending Central Colorado Baseball League tournament. Evergreen lost a day earlier to Bear Creek in the opening round 15-2.
