Another week gone by, winter is coming. However, Lyons (declared in the banana belt) did not get that big snow and blizzard like they did down in the eastern part of the state. Yes, we are mighty lucky!
CODE OF ETHICS
I was given a reprimand Monday night at the Town Board meeting for my Code of Ethics transgression. I admitted I did it and am sorry for the mess-up. I will receive a letter of reprimand and maybe go to some training. However, I misconstrued who knew the information I was seeking when I didn’t get an answer from Victoria, the Town Manager,

A busy week, and a dab of snow. We had to get our winter coats etc., out of storage this past week with that cold rain and snow. However the turn of cold weather is later than usual, but it appears winter is finally here.

Yes, another week gone by, and what a good rain. As it was really pouring down, it was very scary. Reminding of us of the September 2013 flood (it was the most rain since the flood). I was actually glad when it stopped! We can see the pastures and hills green up right before our eyes! Spring has sprung!
We do welcome the Special Housing Committee (currently made up of Craig Ferguson, Thomas Delker, Justin Spencer, and Nathaniel Mohatt,) who had a hand in defeating the sixty-six unit recovery housing project in Bohn Park, but vow they will
