About Town - June 6, 2013

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).

Stressed Trees Need Some Help

By Ron Gosnell

Several Lyons area landowners have asked me to look at their trees recently, because many woody plants in our community are showing signs of stress. Stressed trees, especially non-native species, had late opening buds, branch die-back, smaller than normal leaves, and brown evergreen foliage. They do not look so good.
