  • Big Chili Cook-off set for Sept. 11

    Evergreen’s Big Chili Cook-off will celebrate its 10th anniversary and commemorate the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, especially the firefighters who lost their lives in the tragedy.

    The event on Sunday, Sept. 11, at Evergreen Lake will feature 130 chilis to be tasted by the public and judged by a panel of chili experts. It is a fund-raiser for the Elk Creek, Evergreen, Indian Hills, Inter-Canyon, North Fork and Platte Canyon fire departments.

  • Evergreen resident’s second career blossoms at new shop

    A riot of color greets customers as they walk into Hearts in Bloom, a silk-flower shop that opened last month in Marshdale.

    The tiny shop is the dream of floral designer Judy Williams, who has always wanted a floral shop of her own. She had worked as a floral designer years ago, but the need for a more secure job took her into pharmacy work.

    Williams spent more than 20 years as a pharmacy technician at a King Soopers down the hill. After retiring, she spent 18 months trying to decide what she wanted to do, and she says it always came back to floral design.

  • Splash crop: What to do about Evergreen Lake’s vegetation situation?

    Visiting from distant Oklahoma a couple of weeks ago, 5-year-old Teresa found much about Evergreen to her liking. She liked hiking in a mountain park. She liked collecting pinecones. She liked climbing on rocks. And she particularly liked pedal-boating on Evergreen Lake, with one small proviso.

  • Pocket gophers plague flower gardens

    One of the sure signs that summer is coming to an end is the plethora of yellow wildflowers coming into bloom and the sudden reappearance of gopher mounds in your yard. Pocket gophers are small native mammals that spend most of their lives below ground. There are several species and subspecies of them, but you can’t tell them apart except for minor differences that the experts find in the laboratory.

  • Cougars contain Ivers, Bulldogs

    It was just one play, but it was the one that kept the Evergreen Cougars on their toes for the rest of the night.

    When Moffat County junior quarterback Bubba Ivers broke free around the right edge for a 68-yard TD run on the Bulldogs’ second offensive play, Evergreen had failed to contain its biggest threat in the teams’ season opener on Aug. 26 at Evergreen High School. It didn’t happen again.

  • Leipheimer, state big winners at USA Pro Cycling Challenge

    DENVER — About the only thing that was hotter than cyclist Levi Leipheimer this week, especially on Aug. 28 — the final day of the week-long inaugural USA Pro Cycling Challenge — was the weather.

    It was another hot one, as temperatures scorched an overflowing crowd of more than 200,000 during Stage 6 from Golden to Lookout Mountain into downtown Denver, with it topping out at a record 96 degrees. But it couldn’t stop Leipheimer.
