SHUT OFF YOUR WATER
The Town of Lyons has reminded us to shut the outside water off and roll up the hoses. It is supposed to freeze the next day or two, and we don’t want the pipes to break.
The next budget workshop for the Town of Lyons is scheduled for Monday, November 8, at 6 p.m
Someone is stealing the signs about town that say “Vote No” on Amendments 60, 61, 101! These amendments will cut 70,000 jobs, cut school classes, cut funding for all towns, cities, governments, districts, and schools. We will have to function with one-half the money. Scary to even think of. Vote “NO!”

BOULDER COUNTY TO PURCHASE MORE OPEN SPACE AROUND LYONS
If County Issue 1B passes on November 2, Boulder County will purchase land from the Loukonen family southeast of Lyons for 17 million dollars, and 577 acres known as Cross 7 Ranch southwest of Lyons for 13.3 million dollars. This purchase will be added to the 3,206 acres of the Hall Ranch the County purchased in 1993. Ron Stewart, director of the Parks and Open Space Department states that: “If the taxpayers know that the beautiful land is for sale, they will pass the tax, which amounts to a 15¢ per $100 purchase, sales tax increase.”
The purchase will be discussed at the Parks and Open Space Advisory Council meeting this Thursday, at 6:30 p.m., in the Boulder County Courthouse. The public is invited.

We are saddened at the death of our good friend Harry “Rich” Hirschfeld, age 61, of Loveland, who passed away October 13. He is survived by his wife, Marie, a son Travis, stepson John, stepdaughter, Treacey, three sisters: Pauline, Anna and Virginia, and two brothers: Lawrence and Paul.
He was preceded in death by his parents: Pauline and Gottlieb Hirschfeld, and two brothers: Joe and Ed Hirschfeld. Rich grew up in Lyons and graduated in 1968. He attended Mesa College where he played football. He worked for Cemex until his health failed. He was the fortunate recipient of a kidney transplant, which extended his life by fifteen years, but it eventually gave out causing several hospitalizations over the last two years. A celebration of his life was held at the Crossroads Church. Memorial contributions may be made to the Rich Hirschfeld Memorial Fund in care of Kibbey Fishburn Funeral Home, 1101 N. Lincoln Ave., Loveland, CO 80537. Rich was a friendly, helpful person, who will be sadly missed by all.
