Comedy and To Kill a Mockingbird at StageDoor Theatre

Written by Staff Editor on .

To Kill a Mockingbird is showing now thru October 10 featuring StageDoor's Adult Company and directed by Justin Johnson. A Literary Classic!

The only sin Scout Finch (Tay Reynolds), the young narrator of Harper Lee's classic novel, has ever heard her lawyer father denounce was to kill a mockingbird; they do nothing but make music for us to enjoy.

The corruption of innocence is as much Lee's theme as the rape and racism that disfigure a small Alabama town in 1935. Through courage and compassion, lawyer Atticus Finch (Rob Bogin) seeks the truth when Tom Robinson (Cris Davenport), a black man, is accused of raping a white woman, Mayella (Jordyn Morgan).

Atticus’ feisty daughter, Scout brings new hope to their small town community in turmoil. Rated PG-13

Laugh it up at StageDoor Theatre!

High Ground documentary supports veterans program at MRC

Written by Staff Editor on .


Co-producers of the documentary Michael Brown and Matt Murphy were on hand when their documentary "High Ground" was shown at Conifer HS and Evergreen HS in early October.  The film is about 11 veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan who band together to climb Mount Lobuche in the Himalayas, accompanied by blind adventurer Erik Weihenmayer and a team of Everest summiters as their guides.

The event benefited the Mountain Resource Center, which has established a new veterans program in response to a growing need in the community for reintegration support. Veterans work with a specially trained Veteran Advocate to create their own plan to attain long-term self-sufficiency. Based on individual needs, veterans are eligible for ongoing support in housing, utilities, emergency health, counseling and employment services. Since the Veterans Services Department was established, Mountain Resource Center has served more than 100 veterans in our community.


Clark, Sr., Addison Rozwell "Rozzi"

Rozzi Clark

(1901 - 1982)

Addison Rozwell Clark, Sr., was known to folks in the mountain community as “Rozzi.” He and his wife, Leona, first visited Evergreen during a trip to Denver for the 1926 Rotary Club Convention.

Rozzi was born in Kansas City, Mo. and met Leona at a Rotary luncheon in Butler County, Kansas, where she was introduced as a candidate for “Miss El Dorado.”  He had a Pierce Arrow dealership in Wichita.

They married a year later and made summer trips to Evergreen until the early '40s, when they bought property and relocated. By that time the family included three sons: Rozzie, Jr.; Lee, aka “Bud;” and Conrad, aka “Butch.”

In 1943 Rozzi bought 160 acres along Brook Forest Road – the Rocky Mountain Evergreen Nursery, known nationally for its blue spruce seedlings at least in part because of the history of the blue spruce.
