  • Generations: For the Davey family, it’s all about the military and sports

    I wanted to write about a family with longstanding and ongoing presence in the military, and Bruce Davey of Evergreen certainly fits the bill.

    • Bruce grandfather was a Navy doctor.

    • Bruce’s father, Harry, was career Navy, serving many places including the U.S. and Germany.

    • Bruce’s mother, Jane, had members of the Royal Navy of Britain in her family tree, specifically her father and grandfather. 

    • Bruce’s brother Douglas, like Bruce, is a former Navy pilot.

  • Sumner announces retirement from CAE in December

    Steve Sumner, Center for the Arts Evergreen’s executive director for 12 years, is retiring at the end of the year to make time for creating his own art, traveling and spending more time with his family.

    “I want to have the time to make some important art that has been rumbling around in my head,” Sumner, 78, said of retirement. “What I hope I can come up with is a nice balance of being able to sequester myself (to make art) and also continue to do significant work in arts organizations.”

  • Sense of community drives Indian Hills Fire crew

    It’s a typical morning for Emery Carson as he walks around the fire station, checking out things. He makes sure everything is in the right place and secure. Then the wait begins.

    “Some-times it’s very quiet,” said the veteran fire chief in his 31st year with the Indian Hills Fire Protection District and the department’s only paid employee.

    The calls — usually 250 to 300 per year — are sporadic at times and other times not so much.

    Both Dave and I absolutely love what we do for a living. One of my favorite parts of the job is to educate people regarding the proper way to train as they are working out.

    Invariably, most people are surprised to learn that there is more to it than just “lifting weights.” If you are looking to start strength training, or even if you have been doing it for a while, here are some important things you need to know:

  • Crime briefs

    Suspect arrested in connection with death of Littleton man headed for arraignment
    It didn’t take long for 18-year-old Blake Quinlan to disclose his role in the murder of Joseph Michael Brinson.

    At least that’s how Jeffco Sheriff’s Office Investigator TJ Woodin explained it to the court during a July 19 preliminary hearing.

  • Community joins together to find boy’s lost pendant

    “Impossible situations can become possible miracles.”

    — Robert H. Schuller

    The Berendes family of Evergreen knows about impossible situations — and it also knows about miracles.

    Last week, with the help of social media and strangers, Marla and John Berendes and their son Jack recovered a pendant that Jack lost somewhere on the Evergreen Golf Course.

  • Annual Summerfest lures in a crowd with craftsmanship and camaraderie

    The 40th annual Summerfest arts festival last weekend featured everything an arts lover could ask for: paintings, jewelry, ceramics, sculpture and more.

    The festival also featured Palette of Brews for beer lovers, wine from local Creekside Cellars, other beverages and a plethora of food trucks.

    To round out the event at Buchanan fields, there was something for music lovers with bands performing all weekend thanks to the efforts of Jim Sherwood, owner of Evergreen Clothing Co.

  • The annual Wine, Washes and Wagging Tails event raises funds for EAPL

    Bob and Andy are no strangers to the annual dog wash in downtown Evergreen.

    They’ve come to the fundraiser for the Evergreen Animal Protective League for the past several years — and they’ve brought their owners with them, too.

    Bob is an 8-year-old great Dane, weighing 185 pounds. He sat gingerly in a kiddie pool as volunteers from TallGrass Aveda Day Spa rinsed, soaped and rinsed again. He was happy to get a blue TallGrass bandana and petting from the volunteers as his owner, Jim Higerd, watched.

  • Jeffco voters to see a TABOR-related ballot measure in November

    Jefferson County voters will be asked in November to decide whether to allow the county to retain property tax funds that exceed the Taxpayer Bill of Rights limits.

    Called “de-brucing,” the proposal would allow Jeffco to retain funding instead of returning the money to taxpayers. However, the county would still be required to go to the voters if it wanted to raise property taxes. 

  • Horse healing: Resqranch, West Wind Stables partnership helps people learn how to care for horses

    Jena Questen hopes to reinvent the relationship humans have with animals.

    As part of that goal, Questen, the owner of Aspen Park Veterinary Hospital in Conifer, created a program called Hike with Horses and Horses 101, both of which aim to teach people of all ages about horses. And while learning about rescue horses, participants learn more about training dogs, cats and other animals, too.
