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

Another week gone by, and a few very hot days. Time for air conditioning, which takes a lot of electricity. Dawn Weller of the Lyons Sustainability Committee tells us to get an energy audit, and make the changes to our homes that will make a difference. We should all do that! Call Jeremy Matson at (303) 823-6622, Ext 28 for more information.

Another week gone by. A busy one, too. The streets were filled with kayaks, canoes, and dogs. Lots of folks came to the Lyons Outdoor Games. Some liked it, some didn’t. The music was loud but good, and the fireworks seemed very loud (due, to reflecting off the hills), however, very enjoyable. These are the fireworks that had been in storage, since there was a fireban at the time of the Christmas parade, and the guarantee would have expired in six months. It was fun to see them, though, as it gave us spirit!
Living close to a park or school is always a pain to the nearby residents when large events are scheduled (when buying a home, you have to watch those things, if you want to have your peace and quiet).

MONDAY WAS MEMORIAL DAY: a time of flags, programs, memorials, gatherings at the cemeteries to say a word to our loved ones who have gone before us, and to reminisce about the days gone by and about the fun we had. A time to say, “We miss them!” A time to say a “thank you” to those in the service; to those who have lost their lives protecting us, and we
