Hi everyone! Spring has arrived. The Garden Club’s daffodils are popping up, and will be blooming soon (our thanks to that group of hard workers).

Volunteers to rebuild the stonewalls of the beds are needed. Contact: Lyonsvolunteers.org

Another week gone by; a spring snow came last Thursday night and it is now rain and snow this week. It is getting very scary how much snow is in the high country; with hopes that it stays cool this spring and it comes down gradually. Everyone is very skittish and concerned.

Roads Traveled With Linda L. Osmundson

Finding Fossils Close to Home

I moved to Colorado from Texas right out of college when I was hired to teach in Jefferson County. I stood awestruck at the sight of Red Rocks Amphitheater from the playground of Bear Creek Elementary. Amazed, I listened to my second graders talk about collecting arrowheads at nearby Soda Lakes.
