Another week gone by. This Sunday is Mothers' Day. Do not forget your mother or grandmother! If it wasn’t for them, you would not be here! It is sad when you lose your mother. She is the one that gave birth to you, raised you, taught you most of what you know, and is responsible for a lot of how you turned out. Of course, you may have gone astray and picked up some bad habits, but your good habits, you should attribute to your mother. A shout out to all our mothers.

 

 

Another week gone by. No rain to speak of, the blossoms are beautiful, a couple nice warm days. Seems spring is finally here. Time to rake, trim trees, etc., and don't spray the dandelions! Keep them for the bees, which are needed for food, flowers, trees, etc. The bees are dying! No pesticides please!

 

 

Another month has gone by, and the first of May is next Tuesday. In my day, someone would leave you a May Basket (full of flowers), knock on your door, and you would chase him, or her, and give them a kiss if you caught them. Those were the good old days!

 

 

Another week gone by, and no snow or rain; however, it is supposed to come tomorrow!  It is interesting that Boulder County is protesting the expansion of Gross Reservoir, by the City of Denver, saying there is no water to put in it.

It is an ongoing battle, which takes year of permits, hearings, labor, etc. We know in fighting Coffintop.  (Now they

 

 

 

Another week gone by, and Tuesday was the first day of Spring and we had that wonderful rain! Things are looking up in Lyons, Colorado. We are going to make it! Thanks to all for the four and a half years of help in flood recovery.

IRONIC
Last Wednesday was the National Walkout of students speaking out about gun control, no guns in schools, the need for new laws, the need to do away with assault rifles, etc. The walkout at Lyons High was very somber and impressive, honoring the seventeen students and faculty who were killed n Parkland, FL with seventeen minutes of silence. We are with you students.

Then Monday night the Boulder County is sitting before the Lyons Town Board promoting a shooting range just over the hill from where the affordable housing

 

 

It was a great Easter, with lots of people in church and Sunday school, Easter egg hunts, and potlucks. The weather was good, reminding us that Spring is here. A joyful day! A time to get rid of the winter doldrums for revival of body and soul. 

Several folks from Lyons were thrilled to hear Mintze Wu and her fellow musicians: Jubal Fulks, Matthew Dane, and Sara Biber at the Good Friday Service entitled “Haydn’s Last Seven Words of Christ,” held at the St. John’s Episcopal Church in Boulder, where ministers from the First United Methodist Church, St. John’s Episcopal Church, Pine Street

 

 

Another week gone by. The Lyons High School girls lost their last two basketball games and will not be going to the state tournament. Clear Creek will be going for our division. The 1A and 2A games start Thursday at the Budweiser center in Loveland. We want to express our thanks and appreciation to our Lyons team.

They did well, and gave us spectators a lot of excitement. Eight teams of boys and girls, out of some forty teams in Class 2A, get to go to state. For the boys it's:
