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 peopleRead more: BUILD! The Amazing World Of Lego

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.

A hidden danger emerges as lush, spring grass dries up in the hot weather of early summer. The dried grass seeds, called grass awns, pose a potentially deadly threat to your pet.
These grass awns frequently become lodged in your pet’s fur or body openings. The most common places for grass awns to become stuck are between the toes, in eyes and ears. If they are removed promptly, only minor irritation results. The special shape of these awns allows them to burrow deeper into your pet if they are not removed promptly.
Awns in the eye cause infection, corneal ulcers, and eventual blindness. Awns in the ear cause external ear infections and often will penetrate the eardrum to cause middleRead more: Dangerous Grass

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 tryingRead more: Calorie Conscious

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.
It took us forty days to catch our first fish. Technically, twenty-eight days in that we hooked a rockfish but we were unprepared to cook it so ended up releasing it. You’d think we would be having fish and crab for dinner every night, but something about waking up at four or five in the morning, paddling ten hours straight, battling current andRead more: Paddle to Alaska - Part 5
