About Town -Nov. 14, 2013

NOVEMBER 11, IS VETERANS DAY. Yes, a day to honor our veterans of all wars, who fought for us through the years since 1776, because we did not like the English rule.   Since then we have had many wars, and they are still happening, luckily not in America. But our service men and women are sent to fight overseas, all for the cause to keep Americans save.  We truly owe each and every one of them our deep gratitude. “The Land of the Brave, and the Home of the Free”  God bless and keep you all!

Our thanks to the Lyons High School and other bands of the St. Vrain District who participated in the Veterans Day Parade in Longmont on Monday.

Another week gone by, and things are getting better in Lyons.  More utilities were turned on this weekend with more people in their homes, more businesses opening up in town, just a night patrolman, but still curfew10 p.m. to 5 a.m. Debris is being picked up, more roads and streets opened; some areas do not have utilities yet, but will within a week or two.  The report was good for most, but not pleasing to the areas that cannot have gas unless they have water. PATIENCE is the word!

GOOD NEWS! Several neighborhoods of town will be going home this weekend. Yea, for us, and Yea for the Town Staff and all their co-horts for working so hard to get us back home.

Actually, most of us probably enjoyed our stay-away-from-home to find out how others live, what are their activities, their habits, what they eat, exercise, go to, etc. It is different when you live there, than visit for just a few hours. I found Niwot an intriguing town, but hard to meet
