  • Inaugural event brings western art to Evergreen

    Sunday’s damp weather didn’t deter art lovers from stopping by the second day of the inaugural Evergreen Western Art Celebration.

    The two-day event in the Evergreen Christian Outreach Resale Store parking lot had more than 50 artists showing and selling their work — photography, jewelry, paintings, bags, ceramics, metal and more.

    Those walking around as they dodged the raindrops remarked that the art was high quality, and many stayed until 1 p.m., when there was a drawing for a $1,000 gift certificate to be spent at the show.

  • The annual Evergreen Rodeo Parade draws a crowd early and often

    Before the Rodeo Parade, it’s tailgate party time — Evergreen style.

    Folks arrive as early as 5:30 a.m. to get spots in the downtown parking lot, where they set up tents and chairs in anticipation of the 10 a.m. parade start.

    The families from the Herzman Mesa subdivision were in full-swing party mode at 9:30 a.m. with about two dozen adults and kids eating breakfast, listening to country music and socializing.

  • After stroke, Shirley can’t leave rodeo behind

    Not long ago, local cowboy and rodeo star Tim Shirley was on top of the world.

    A pro-rodeo athlete since 2001, everything started clicking for the now 36-year-old Conifer resident in the bareback competition. He kept winning around 2007, after he joined National Finals Rodeo and before retiring in 2012.

    Then a near-tragedy struck in 2014, just days before Christmas. Following a competition out of town, Shirley returned home and went to bed. He didn’t wake up the next morning.

    MARSHDALE — Every summer for the past 11 years, rugby coach Hugh Miller and his son have donned the pitch with their talent and love for the sport.

    The co-ed program runs a six-week season during the summer and hosts about 80 kids from the surrounding area.

    The Suitors are now fostering Daisy through a organization called Big Dogs Huge Paws and waiting until she finds her forever home. But even the journey to her temporary one in Conifer wasn’t easy.

  • Evergreen church bids pastor farewell at Cowboy Sunday Service

    When the time came to depart, rather than riding their horses off into the sunset, Pastor Russell Fletcher and his wife Diane rode off on a four-wheeler toward the church picnic.

    The exit proved to be a fitting farewell for the Fletchers and an appropriate conclusion to the United Methodist Church of Evergreen’s annual Cowboy Sunday Service.

    For six years, the church has been hosting the service on Evergreen Rodeo weekend in hopes of attracting newcomers, out-of-towners and other visitors.
