  • Evergreen artist Hudson ‘paints from the heart’

    Some meetings are just serendipitous. Such was the case when Steven Sonnen walked into a gallery in Santa Fe, N.M. Little did he know that the artist whose work he was admiring, Andrée Hudson, lived in his own hometown of Evergreen.
    “I couldn’t believe it when the gallery gave me her contact information. Andrée literally lives 10 minutes from my wife and me in Evergreen,” says Sonnen, the owner of Mirada Fine Art in Indian Hills.

  • Cougars gymnasts look to improve, heal in time for state

    ARVADA — It wasn’t Evergreen’s best performance. Head coach Marnie Bello would tell you that. But there were numerous reasons for that.

    Mainly injuries, which have hampered the Cougars all season long, if not longer. Thus, the team’s 168.4-156.175 loss to Arvada West on Sept. 30 at Pomona High School didn’t serve as much of an indicator at what Evergreen is capable of doing. But, even still, the Cougars put their best foot forward and came away with some impressive performances.

    This has been a beautiful fall, with the best color being at lower elevations, such as around Evergreen. The aspen in Little Cub Creek Valley have been at their best for a week now, but strong breezes have begun to take their toll.

    October has brought some of the warm weather we looked for in September, and we have enjoyed the Indian summer days.

  • Press excluded from park district’s ‘emergency’ meeting

    The Evergreen Park and Recreation District board held an emergency meeting Sept. 23 without notifying the press or the public.

    The meeting reportedly was called in response to information that a group was coming to tour park facilities, and the board did not want the visitors to interfere with staff work during business hours.

    During the meeting, the board discussed a rule preventing district employees from interviewing potential employers or other individuals during regular work hours. The substance of the new policy was voted on at the Sept. 28 board meeting.
