  • Rumor has it: StageDoor's 'Rumors' is laugh-out-loud fun

    These days, plenty of theater productions make you think. StageDoor Theatre’s latest production of Neil Simon’s hit show “Rumors” is theater that makes you laugh ee and laugh and laugh and laugh.

    “We picked this show because it would be fun,” says Fran Arniotes, one of 10 cast members. “There’s a lot of stuff that’s challenging for today’s audiences, and we thought that with the economy and the way the world is today, people just want to escape and laugh.”

  • Forum planned for political candidates

    The Evergreen Chamber of Commerce and the Canyon Courier are hosting a forum for political candidates at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 2 at the Lake House.

  • How sweep it is

    The Evergreen boys tennis squad could have behaved in a variety of ways Sept. 4 in its match against an overmatched Arvada Reds team.

    The Cougars could have cut up, goofed off, taken mental breaks and still probably won.

    Instead, they were professional, from the introductions to the handshakes that ended every game in a comfortable 7-0 sweep on Evergreen’s home courts.

  • Tigers tame Cougars in three games

    The Cougars battled hard on their home court but were unable to overcome Lakewood on Sept. 4 in a nonleague volleyball game.

    Evergreen slipped to 1-6 on the young season, falling in three games 25-21, 21-16, 21-19.

    Evergreen played a spirited match but ultimately were unable to overcome Lakewood’s tall and talented front line. Lauren Lind, Rachel Gilchrist, Shayne Brown and Katie Rosa led the hit brigade as the Class 5A Tigers notched the win over their 4A opponents.

  • Vehicle hits, kills bear on I-70 at Floyd Hill

    A 2-year-old black bear was killed by a vehicle on I-70 about 10:30 p.m. Tuesday.

    The bear was struck by an eastbound vehilce near Floyd Hill, and the Division of Wildlife removed the remains Wednesday morning. There were no injuries to the motorist who reported the incident.

    "It's very common," said Jennifer Churchill, spokeswoman for the DOW. "Unfortunately, I-70 was built through a wildlife corridor. We'd like to remind people to drive slow and keep their eyes open for wildlife."

  • Reporter witnesses a page from U.S. history

    Even now, as the memories of the Democratic National Convention are starting to fade, the crowds and cameras have left, and the speeches turned into expired sound bites — I’ve come to understand that history is served best when it is not regurgitated back as a spectator sport.

  • Growing EHS field band gives students more to love

    To achieve a really eye-popping, bleacher-shaking, spirit-raising, rabble-rousing, scream-yourself-hoarse halftime show, bigger is definitely better. And Evergreen High School’s first-rate Cougar Marching Band is getting better all the time.

    “Four years ago, there were less than 50 kids in the marching band, and there were 63 when I took over,” says Michelle Knight, who accepted EHS’ instrumental music baton in 2007. “We’ve got 78 now, and I think it will probably keep growing.”

  • Rocky Mountain academy plans big camping trip

    Ryan Lucas, director of Rocky Mountain Academy of Evergreen, has decided to go camping with a few of his closest friends — all of the families at the school.

    Lucas says he’s never tried a school-wide camping trip before, but he’s hoping families will join him at the Arrowhead Point Camping Resort near Buena Vista Sept. 12-14.

    “I’m an outdoors kind of person,” Lucas said. “With this trip, I can combine doing something I love with bringing the whole school together.”

  • The fine art of travel comes together for local artist

    Like many artists, Kathy Dawson loves to travel. As a young woman, Dawson lived and danced professionally in Germany. Over the years, Dawson continued to travel and has visited far-flung places throughout the world. Dawson drew inspiration for her watercolors from the villages and castles of Italy and France. Then, several years ago, she took it a step further. Dawson began incorporating actual souvenirs from her travels into her art — and stumbled upon a combination for which she has earned acclaim throughout Denver.
