    Two Evergreen businessmen have revived a building trades program for high school students that flourished more than a decade ago.

    After hiking up a steep slope with two heavy containers of water, crew leader Lauren Riegler of Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado coordinated efforts to develop a trail on Saddleback Mountain on Friday.
