Paddling To Alaska - Part Six

By Kelly Yelverton


Editor’s Note: Lyons resident Kelly Yelverton recently graduated from Lewis & Clark College in Portland, Oregon. To celebrate her accomplishment, she and a friend have decided to paddle their sea kayaks on a 1200-mile journey through the Inside Passage to Alaska. She will be sending updates and photos of her adventure throughout the summer.

That was a great rain Saturday evening, and nice to have.  Luckily there was not much hail or a tornado with it. We lucked out.

By the signs around town, about two-dozen roofing companies swarmed into Lyons last month, each telling you “they are the best.” How do we know! According to the TV, you should get three bids for replacing your roof, do not pay ahead, and make sure you get a good job.

Tuesday was National Night Out with the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office holding their annual  crime and

BUILD! The Amazing World Of Lego

Roads Traveled with Linda L. Osmundson

A friend said she and her children recently spent four hours at the Longmont Museum’s BUILD! The Amazing World of LEGO exhibit without tiring or getting bored. A fan of the creative toy, from the time our boys were young, I decided to check it out.

I drove to the Longmont Museum at 400 Quail Road. Before I even stepped into the exhibit, I heard happy voices and the shuffling of what I determined must be LEGO bricks. Only a few people

The town was full of festival-goers over last week through the weekend bringing good music to folks from near and far, and boosting the town’s economy. Besides the lessons, they enjoyed tubing, swimming, playing, jumping, dancing, eating, etc. The downtown area was congested all weekend with hardly a place to park. All enjoyed their stay in Lyons.

Do you ever feel confused about what your diet should be  or wish to have alternatives to pharmaceutical medicine?  Have you questioned the balance of vitamins and pharmaceuticals in your routine to wonder how what you do today might affect you long-term? 

Information can be extremely confusing about health and it often can feel like every bit of information out there conflicts with something else.  When it comes to navigating our own health choices, it can be

Calorie Conscious

Keeping Lyons Fit!

By Mary Chase, owner of Lyons Fitness Center

If you are like me, you are at that point in the summer when you realize the hot days and vacation time make you open a beer a little quicker, or eat a couple more chips at the barbeque. So maybe before any more calories are consumed we can examine how you can be conscious day to day about your calorie consumption. 

First off, I believe tracking your caloric intake is a good idea.  I don’t think it matters if you are trying
