  • In defense of Ted Cruz and the Tea Party

    Last week, Ted Cruz won the Republican U.S. Senate primary in Texas over a better-known, better-funded opponent.

  • Who is in charge in America?

    By Jim Rohrer
    Every single year since 1969, except for a brief three-year period between 1998 and 2001, our U.S. government has spent more than it has taken in.

  • Making picnics environmentally friendly as well as fun

     While picnics and outdoor events are fun, the vast majority of disposable products picnickers use wind up in landfills, adding to the waste stream humans generate. The Evergreen Alliance for Sustainability has developed a program designed to offset this problem by helping people create a zero-waste event from planning stages to final cleanup.

    EAS+Y volunteers can direct event organizers to places where they can purchase recyclable or compostable cups, plates, or utensils, which are available from many sources, including a local wholesaler.

    Anna Bowes, another Evergreen High grad and Bootstraps recipient, is getting ready to move to a dorm at Colorado State University, where she will study music and participate in the school’s marching band.
