  • Fund-raiser to help GIs, families

    Every day an average of 22 veterans commit suicide.

  • King-Murphy kids help the hungry

    The lesson for King-Murphy Elementary’s sixth-graders was simple: It’s important to help others in the community.

    The students learned that lesson through a school-wide food drive. The school donated 750 items to Evergreen Christian Outreach for families in need.

    Last Tuesday, the students loaded boxes of canned goods, juices, boxed macaroni and cheese, detergent and other items into a vehicle sent to the school by EChO.

  • Gerou’s apocalyptic riff turns heads at town hall

    In state Rep. Cheri Gerou's mind, District 25 has seen an apocalypse — or, to be more precise, four horsemen of the apocalypse.

    Gerou spoke of pestilence, flood, fire and famine at last Thursday's town hall meeting, sponsored by the Evergreen Pathfinders at the Evergreen Lake House. The last of seven speakers, her statement caught the audience's attention, and she proceeded to elaborate.

    Pestilence, she said, came in the form of the destructive pine beetles that the Front Range has been trying so hard to thwart.
