  • Floyd Hill design center a one-stop shop

    It’s safe to say that handcrafted log furniture is more widely found in mountain homes.

    Rocky Mountain Log Furniture sells custom items from its stores on Meadow Drive in Evergreen, on Miner Street in Idaho Springs and in Grand Junction. It has just expanded its reach by renting space at the Rocky Mountain Home and Design Center.

    The center, on the north side of Interstate 70 at Floyd Hill, houses Colorado artisans who make and sell everything for homes from lighting and flooring to furniture and windows.

  • Advertising correction: Keys on the Green

    Due to production difficulties, an incorrect ad appeared in this week's Canyon Courier for Keys on the Green restaurant.

Remember our Sunday Buffet, 9:00 am 'til 2:00 pm. Keys is at Evergreen Golf Course. Phone: 303-674-4095. On the Web: www.keysonthegreen.com.

  • Get your legs ready to ride

    Last summer I spent a good portion of time on my mountain bike.

    I rode single tracks, paved trails and plenty of local bike paths.

    I also made a point to ride my bike to work at least twice a week. It was one of the most enjoyable things I did in all of 2008.

  • Fire board goes into exec session for legal advice

    The Evergreen Fire Protection District board went into a surprise executive session June 9 to get legal advice from its attorney, Linda Alexander, about a matter having to do with patient care.

    The executive session, closed to the public, lasted from 8:40 p.m. to 10:30 p.m., when the meeting was adjourned. No action was taken during or after the executive session.

  • Squaw Mountain home of highest TV broadcast tower

     

    From its lofty perch on Squaw Mountain, KBDI Channel 12 has the distinction of having the highest TV broadcast tower in North America at 11,200 feet altitude.

    But if you don’t re-scan, you won’t see its signal.

    Colorado Public Television Channel 12 moved Friday, June 12, from UHF channel 38 to the new permanent VHF channel 13. It will still show up on the on-screen program guide as channel 12 under the new nationwide digital TV broadcast conversion that went into effect Friday.

  • June finally brings spring’s green hues

    June has finally brought spring to the mountains. Our Evergreen World is GREEN, as green as I have seen it since last August when the drought turned everything to a uniform tan. Even the ponderosa pine trees had lost their scintillating sparkle. Now, after nearly a month of rainy weather, they are sparkling in the sunshine. The hills are green with evergreen trees, kinnikinnick and grasses, and the valleys are green with the new growth of willows.

  • Fire board is careful regarding executive sessions

    Greg Romberg, in his opinion article in the May 27 Canyon Courier, is correct, and I appreciate his advice and cautions. Members of the Evergreen Fire Protection District board are continually reminded by our district counsel of the very narrow reasons we can go into executive session. Since it appears as if my comments were not clearly vocalized, I will try again.

  • Does Walmart contribute to poverty?

    By Hannah Hayes

    There was a time when you could market a product based on its inherent value. Lately, low price has become the predominant criteria in the marketplace. The world’s largest corporation, Walmart, shares mightily in the creation of that business ethic. The company is even benefiting during these tough economic times as it draws people in with low prices, while many say it’s Walmart that created the difficulties in the first place.
