  • Apex proposals put brakes on bikes

    The new proposed management plan for Apex Park on Lookout Mountain gives mountain-bike riders access to all trails, while restricting certain uphill segments to one-way bike travel only.

    Instead of traveling from top to bottom conveniently nonstop, cyclists would navigate a series of switchbacks going uphill for 0.7 miles, before taking the rest of the downhill.

    Under the plan, pedestrians would be somewhat less vulnerable to bikes coming downhill.

  • Soaring need puts EChO in expansion mode

    With the local economy in a tailspin, the staff at Evergreen Christian Outreach food and clothing bank is feeling the stress.

    As the holiday season approaches, EChO is sending out an SOS for more volunteers, groceries, bedding and shoes, among other things. The center at 27640 Highway 74 is also expanding physically to accommodate the crowds.

  • Fire board eliminates deputy chief job

    After meeting in a closed-door session for about 45 minutes, the Evergreen fire district board decided Sept. 17 to combine two jobs into one and eliminate the deputy chief post, culminating a staff reduction process that began early this year.

    Some of the communications manager’s duties have been reassigned to the communications supervisors, and other management matters will be under a new position.

  • Spend more now on credit, get less later

    We’re all familiar with the endless solicitations for credit cards in the mailbox, but the most desperate one I ever received was an actual check for $100. All I had to do was endorse it and I’d get the cash — along with a new credit card. No strings attached, right?

  • Finches, sparrows abound as autumn approaches

    After a hard rain during the night, the morning of Aug. 30 was damp, misty, humid, partly cloudy, partly sunny, foggy, hazy and warm, with a slight breeze that would sway the tall grasses and flowers occasionally just enough to send a raindrop rolling off.

    There was a definite feeling of autumn in the air that Sunday morning and an unusual number of birds in the yard and at the feeders. I was only getting quick flashes of them from the window, so I finally went out on the carport where I could see over a larger area and follow them from place to place.

  • 2009’s Angel has special significance

    For centuries, angels have played a significant role in religious iconography, as well as becoming an accepted symbol in pop culture. Angels have been messengers, protectors and guardians, or simply cute cherub-like characters with wings and halos. Thanks to Evergreen Fine Art Gallery, the angel holds a treasured role in gift giving throughout the world.

  • Coming home, for real

    The excitement is building at Evergreen High School as the highly anticipated homecoming week approaches.

    In addition to the usual activities, this year’s homecoming is extra special because the varsity football game will be at the school for the first time in 35 years, thanks to portable bleachers. And, even more exciting, the game is against the Conifer Lobos.

  • Tour of studios puts artists’ techniques on display

    An artist’s space can tell so much. Do they work at home, or do they share a space with another artist? That toppling wooden chair that you love in an artist’s latest oil painting? Does it sit welcomingly in the corner of her studio — bathed in sunlight that streams in from the north? These are all questions that will be answered this weekend at the eighth annual Open Door Studios Tour in Evergreen.

  • Bernstein feels right at home in ‘Carousel’

    Rick Bernstein has made a name for himself in Denver’s theater world as the founder and executive director of Miners Alley Playhouse in Golden. On Sept. 18, Bernstein brings his directing talent a little closer to home in his directorial debut with the Evergreen Chorale’s production of “Carousel.”

    “I’ll tell you, working at Center/Stage sure has saved on gas money,” laughs Bernstein. Bernstein and his wife, Paige Larson, also active in theater at Miners Alley and throughout Colorado, are Evergreen residents.
