Lantern-Lit Journey Through History

By Kathleen Spring

Each young camper held a lantern from the early 1900s and followed their guide through the mysteries of the Lyons Redstone Museum on the first day of the 2012 Lyons History Summer Day Camp. They first learned about how fire, then candles, lanterns, and finally electric lights changed the way of life of mankind. Then they went down the darkened hallways to discover how Lyons pioneer families lived their daily lives.

Mysteries Of Menopause Explained

Part One: What is going on?

With Dr. Sara Hart, ND, MSOM, LAc of Stillwater Healing Arts Clinic, Lyons

One moment you’re sitting in a meeting having a conversation with a colleague and you’re able to present yourself as a professional, intelligent person.  Before you can blink, your mind turns to Jell-O, you can’t remember the last word you said nor the poignant message you were trying to convey, your body temperature seems to be going through the roof, and you’re sweating profusely.

Santa Fe, New Mexico

Drive south on I-25 about seven hours from Lyons and you arrive in Santa Fe, New Mexico. “A City Different,” “Aspen’s sister,” “O’Keeffe Country,” the highest US capitol city at over 7200 feet, and Spanish for “holy faith.”  Thirty-two years ago my husband and I visited the city for a company business conference. More recently, we traveled there to help our middle son and his family settle into a house. Santa Fe has definitely changed!

Highway Of Legends

About 205 miles from Lyons, or a three and a half hour drive, you’ll find one of the first scenic highways of Colorado, the Highway of Legends. While on the way to Santa Fe, my husband and I passed many signs, which directed travelers to this eighty-two mile, two hour scenic side trip that begins in Walsenburg and ends in Trinidad. You take Rte. 160, west toward LaVeta where the Highway of Legends actually begins at Rte. 12.

What Grandma Ate... And Why

By Carol Marra

Frances crawled out an upper window of her family’s Iowa farmhouse and onto the tin roof above the front porch; she was toting a tray of thinly sliced apples from the orchard. She placed them carefully on the tin roof to dry in the sun -- the roof was hot enough to keep the flies away. These apples would be the stars of the dried apple pudding, with whipped cream from the dairy cows, which was a staple of celebratory family dinners.
