  • Baby greets world in ambulance

     For paramedics who stand ready to help ill and injured patients with life-threatening conditions, a call to assist a mother about to give birth can give their day a happy turn.

    Working together in an ambulance, an Evergreen Fire/Rescue team helped deliver a healthy baby boy on July 3.

    After receiving a call to assist Evergreen residents Sarah and Mark Davis at 4:25 a.m., paramedics Quinton Galt and Stacey McCarthy met the couple at the intersection of Interstate 70 and Highway 74. 

  • Sparks fuel residents' worries about proposed training facility

    Residents living near Evergreen Fire/Rescue Station 2 in Bergen Park say they saw sparks flying during a recent training session — a sight that has increased their concerns about a proposed fire training building at the site.

    “I couldn’t believe that I saw sparks,” said resident Greg Meyerhoff, who was observing the activity through binoculars from his home in The Trails at Hiwan on June 25. “Are they using prudent judgment?”

  • Letting the good times roll

     Sisters Katie and Sarah Wachs had a good time listening to 16-year-old Austin Young play rocking, bluesy tunes at the Evergreen Music Festival on July 4. 


    “They’re so good,” Sarah said of Young and his band No Difference. 

    “I love that it’s a father-son duo,” added Katie.

    As Young belted out “Come on, baby, let the good times roll,” people danced in the grass at Evergreen Lake Park while others sat back and enjoyed the music.

  • Enough Americans still believe in America

    Seems like there’s plenty to lose sleep over these days. We’re into the fourth year of the worst recession since the Great Depression. In Afghanistan, we’re a decade into an “operation” nobody seems to understand. Long-term fiscal obligations mount apace, pushing dangerously against the limits of mathematical sustainability.

  • Politics, and poor judgment, on parade

    I’ve walked in the Evergreen Rodeo Parade on many occasions, and it’s always a highlight of my summer. My job often involves attempting to keep sweet rewards out of the hands of politicians — so a morning spent depositing candy into the hands of cute kids provides a welcome break.

  • Malazdrewicz’s stock on the rise after Omaha

    Her family drove eight hours to Omaha, Neb., to watch her swim. Classmates and friends have dropped her phone calls, text messages and Facebook posts. There’s no doubt that Lexie Malazdrewicz has her share of support.
    And even though she may not be headed to London for the 2012 Summer Games that’s not to say that Malazdrewicz didn’t put her best foot forward at the U.S. Olympic swimming trials last week.
    She certainly did.
