  • Artists’ ideas keep new gallery vibrant

    Most art galleries are vibrant by nature — the walls packed with colorful or inspiring art that grabs the visitor’s attention. But not all galleries have a vibrant atmosphere in addition to eye-catching art. The Main Street Fine Art Gallery, the latest endeavor of the Evergreen Artists Association, is a lively gallery whose art as well as atmosphere change frequently thanks to a dedicated group of artists.

  • New state House map is unfair to Jeffco

    As this newspaper reported, last week, the Colorado Reapportionment Commission approved a map redrawing this state’s legislative districts. Not only does the map deprive Jefferson County of its allotted number of whole House seats, it carves up significant natural, cultural and administrative communities of interest.

  • Info wars: The empire strikes back

    A short time ago in a county very, very nearby, a group of small weekly newspapers launched an investigation into a land deal that the Jeffco empire presented as a routine open-space purchase.

  • Trees turn on their vibrant fall colors

    It’s that time of year again when everyone is out looking at aspen leaves. Nothing makes Colorado’s scenery more beautiful than the gold of aspen leaves. We have aspen bowls through mile upon mile of our mountain country, nestled among the dark green of pines, spruces and firs. They are golden treasure for everyone to admire and share.

    I am amazed that Denver has not long since built and sponsored an Aspen Bowl where it could host and play major football games.

  • Board hopeful Powers concerned with school closings, need for options

  • Event helps kids learn to stay safe

    Saturday’s weather was the perfect accompaniment to a family day at the 11th annual Community Safety & Family Fun Day.

    Under Colorado blue skies, young children and their parents browsed through booths at the Evergreen Fire/Rescue Administration Building in Bergen Park that taught the tots about safety. They played games, made simple first-aid kits and participated in the annual Bicycle Rodeo. They could practice dialing 911 on fake phones.

  • Oktoberfest raffle winners not bugged

    Corbi Sayler, a Conifer resident who grew up skating on Evergreen Lake, won the refurbished "Love Bug," a 1970 silver Volkswagen with a sporty stripe, in the raffle at the third annual Oktoberfest at Evergreen Lake on Sunday.

    Kristina Halstead, the Evergreen Chamber of Commerce’s 2010 youth of the year, drew Sayler's winning ticket, which was one of a package of three Corbi bought at the Big Chili Cook-off for $10. (Single tickets cost $5 each.)
