NOVEMBER 11, IS VETERANS DAY. Yes, a day to honor our veterans of all wars, who fought for us through the years since 1776, because we did not like the English rule. Since then we have had many wars, and they are still happening, luckily not in America. But our service men and women are sent to fight overseas, all for the cause to keep Americans save. We truly owe each and every one of them our deep gratitude. “The Land of the Brave, and the Home of the Free” God bless and keep you all!
Our thanks to the Lyons High School and other bands of the St. Vrain District who participated in the Veterans Day Parade in Longmont on Monday.

The report was good for most, but not pleasing to the areas that cannot have gas unless they have water. PATIENCE is the word!

HOME! HOME! SWEET, SWEET HOME! It’s what residents of 700 Lyons homes are singing this week. After being away for six weeks, it takes some getting used to. Although, the gas man never came to my home, it is getting close (this Thursday). Again, thanks to all friends, family, hotels, apartments for

Woe is me (us)! A month ago Lyons was forever changed. Its people (2047) were upset with flooding waters, rousting us out of our homes up to the school and church on to higher ground. All 2047 of us were told we had to leave town; no services, no sewer, no water, no electricity, no gas, and no
