Another week gone by! Only one month until school. We hope everyone got to do something exciting this summer.

The opening free concert in the park was postponed due to rain. The only rain of the week, and had to be on that day and time.  Plan to attend this Thursday, at 6:30 p.m., in Sandstone Park. A great concert is in store with the Danny Shafer Band, plus the Farmer’s Market and food truck.  The Blue Canyon Boys will be featured on Thursday, August 1.

A little cooler today! This has really been a very hot summer. Last week at 4:30 p.m., it was 103 degrees in Longmont. It was no doubt cooler here in Lyons. We used to say it was ten degrees cooler. We notice most of our lawns could stand a lot of water, but it’s too expensive. We praise those who are spending $300 to $400 a month for a nice green lawn!  Get out the fans and the swamp coolers, is all I can tell you.

Lyons History Summer Day Camp is back. This year’s theme is early settlers. There will be a focus on Fort Bent and early Lyons farmers. This is the fourth year for the camp, which is made possible by a Lyons Community foundation Grant.  It is open to Lyons area residents, ages six to nine years old, and the cost is $50. It is limited to ten campers. Parents or other

The 37th annual Lyons “Good Old Days” are over and seemed to have gone pretty well, except the big hail storm Friday night.  A near calamity to many who were caught all of a sudden with big hailstones pounding their heads.  One of the carnival men was taken to the hospital, pounded by the hail, using his body to protect kids.  Our thanks to you!  Over one hundred were crowded together under the tent and were fearful of it blowing away. It has been years since we had so much hail!  Following that hail everything was cancelled for Friday, but recovered on Saturday, and all had a great time.

HAIL
Wow!  Lyons certainly got its taste of what happens when there is a catastrophe.  Something new to most of us! The hail last Friday night is said to have ruined about 80% of the roofs in town, nearly 650 homes.  At 6 a.m., Saturday morning, the town was full of roofing contractors.  The insurance companies have their own repairmen who do the work for the amount the adjuster states, plus your deductible. Then another roofing company comes by “So and so isn’t any good, you should use me.” Now the confusion! Which one do you use? Of course we want the best job done. I guess this is a

Amazing, I was lucky to have seen daredevil Nik Wallenda walk across the Grand Canyon on a two-inch wide cable on the Discovery Channel Sunday evening.  He walked a quarter of a mile, 1500 feet above the Grand Canyon, holding a long a balancing rod.  It took him twenty-two minutes, and kneeled twice to get the “rhythm out of the rope.”  He was murmuring prayers
