    Vote on May 8
    Editor:
    It’s time to vote! You may say, “Not again,” or “Not already!”
    But this is different. This is about the future of Evergreen, our hometown. Tuesday, May 8, is the election for the Evergreen Park & Recreation District Board of Directors. This election has historically had low voter turnout, with less than 10 percent of the possible voters coming to the polls.

  • The daily circus

    Sometimes the apparent absurdities of our national politics simply defy explanation. In an attempt to impart some sanity, it appears to me that the best analogy may well be that of a circus.
    Traditionally, our most popular circuses have featured compelling ringmasters directing the audience’s attention to the ever-changing entertainment in one of three rings. Today we have the national media as self-serving ringmasters directing the public’s attention to what they deem as the story of the moment, the issue or issues that best serve their anti-Trump agenda.

  • Gratitude for family, friends, life

    On the day before Easter, my daughters Alex and Bekah and I had stopped on the hill above Mid-Vail to discuss our final run of the day. The next thing I remember was emergency room personnel in the Vail hospital discussing whether I should be taken to Denver Health by ambulance or by helicopter.
    My daughters later told me that I had hit a patch of ice and taken a fall that had broken my helmet (which, thankfully, I was wearing) and my bindings and left me bleeding profusely from my face.

    Please vote on May 8 for Peg Linn, John Ellis and Peter Lindquist for the board of directors for Evergreen Park & Recreation District.

  • A degree doesn't define effective leadership

  • Why we do what we do

    Journalists usually are not good at tooting their own horns. Shoot, in a lot of ways, it doesn’t feel right to do so. But this time, we are.

    We’re a small, but dedicated staff at Evergreen Newspapers. The past two weekends have been a bit surreal for us as our peers paid tribute to our diligent work during the past 12 months.

    First, the Colorado Press Association honored our staff with 47 awards, including a pair of sweepstakes awards for photography and design for the Canyon Courier and Clear Creek Courant.

  • Facebook … the good, the bad and the ugly

    I was not an early adopter of Facebook. Like many my age, I thought it was for kids. Now, I am a user, and I enjoy the networking benefits it brings.
    I commonly communicate with friends and business associates, many of whom I haven’t seen for years. My sister is a well-known artist, but she lives in Cincinnati. With her postings, I can enjoy her artwork.
