The Fat About Fats

Last week  in the article, “The Skinny on Fats.” I wrote about the information we can gather from understanding our blood work results relating to our body's fat metabolism; cholesterol, triglycerides and more.

In many cases, the culprit for imbalances in our fat metabolism is the liver.  What is helpful to understand, is that fats do make us fat, when they are the bad fats. 

As our society transitioned from an agrarian culture influenced primarily from ancestral dietary traditions, the convenience factor started

How Rising Interest Rates Can Impact Retirement Plans

 By Doug Carey

Bond yields have finally starting moving up as the Federal Reserve has begun hinting that they might reduce the amount of bonds they have been buying. The ten-year treasury yield is now at 2.12%, which is nearly 0.50% higher than we saw a year ago. Of course, we have a long way to go to reach the 5% level we saw in 2007.

Low interest rates over the past five years have undoubtedly hurt those in retirement who wanted to live on a fixed income. In fact, it completely ruined many retirement plans and forced some people back to work. Now that rates have risen slightly I want to take a look at

In a career that has its start in the beginnings of the San Francisco rock music scene as a drummer for the nearly forgotten rock group, the Charlatans (the band that some say, “started it all”), through a series of classic recordings in the 1970’s as leader of Dan Hicks and

Pokey LaFarge & His Big Band

Music fans get ready to be transposed back to the 1930s when Pokey LaFarge and The South City Three (plus two horn players) descend upon Oskar Blues in Lyons on Friday, June 14, starting at 9 p.m. Only in their twenties themselves, these guys know how to delight modern-day audiences while evoking images of days gone by. Though heavily influenced by the greats of the 20’s and 30’s, these guys are no novelty act. They still manage to be authentic, original, fresh, and most important of all, fun!

The band writes and performs songs with titles like, “Keep Your Hands Off My Gal” and “So Long Honeybee, Goodbye.” They play an old-time

Lyons Resident Paddling To Alaska

Editor’s Note: Lyons resident Kelly Yelverton recently graduated from college in Washington state. 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 written updates and photos of her adventure throughout the summer.

“So, what next?” I can’t count the number of times I was asked this question over the course of my last semester of college. Each time I answered it, I couldn’t suppress an excited grin. “I’m kayaking to Alaska.” Nearly everyone reacted by re-stating, “You’re kayaking TO
