  • The president got the Korean talks going

    The news in the last six months that Korea is near having the capacity to hit our country with a long-range missile carrying a nuclear weapon has certainly gotten the attention of all of us. Not since the Cold War have we had the possibility of an attack of our country on our minds.
    The strange exchange of personal attacks between President Trump and Kim Jong Un served to further unnerve us, making the two leaders seem to be somewhat unhinged. To be sure, we have not witnessed similar interactions between an American president and a world leader.

  • Morrison residents hoped for town vote – and they got it

    Even though the Morrison Town Board approved rezoning Red Rocks Ranch for residential and commercial development on May 31, the issue isn’t over yet.

    More than 50 Morrison residents signed a petition to put the rezoning on the ballot, and the Morrison Town Board unanimously agreed on Tuesday with the election to be held on Nov. 6.

  • BIZBEAT: Red Rocks Beer Garden opens next to Morrison’s town hall

    Nestled in a quaint cottage on a shady parcel in Morrison is a new beer garden serving solely Colorado beers.

    Since first opening its doors in April, Red Rocks Beer Garden is working to find its footing in hopes of becoming the go-to place for hikers, visitors, locals, dog lovers and concert-goers alike.

  • 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.
