what groundcovers can I get for a dry, sunny area that would grow quickly on thin soil? I would prefer an evergreen like aguga (don't know the spelling)

I'd plant Achillea millefolium L. (common yarrow) which is native to your region and therefore will adapt to your soil conditions. Other native plants to consider include Artemesia schmidtiana "Silver Mound", Cerastium tometosum (Snow In Summer), or Mahonia repens (Creeping Oregon Grape). Ajuga will grow in the site you describe but may require frequent watering. Hope these suggestions are helpful.
