As The Crow Flies

It’s a long way from Lyons to anywhere, “as the crow flies.” Residents of Lyons have known that for some time; many of them live here for just that reason. But now it’s official. Local artist Jake Pinello (he of the murals on the sides of the St. Vrain Market and car wash buildings) has just completed the latest addition to the burgeoning sculpture inventory lining the streets, paths, and parks of Lyons.

Pinello’s sculpture, “As the Crow Flies,” consists of four fifteen-foot wooden poles and a large rosecompass on the corner

Keeping Kids “Sun-Safe”

With the school year over and summer officially here, kids are spending more time outdoors. Exposure to the sun’s harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays increases skin cancer risk, which can be dangerous and even deadly. Suffering one or more blistering sunburns in childhood or adolescence more than doubles a person’s chances of developing potentially deadly melanoma later in life. However, skin cancer is highly preventable, and adopting a complete sun protection regimen can drastically reduce skin cancer risk. There are many things parents and caregivers can do to keep children sun-safe, whether they are at camp, the beach, or just in the backyard.

“Children are more sensitive to the sun, and the sun’s rays are strongest during the summer months, when children tend

HAIL
Wow!  Lyons certainly got its taste of what happens when there is a catastrophe.  Something new to most of us! The hail last Friday night is said to have ruined about 80% of the roofs in town, nearly 650 homes.  At 6 a.m., Saturday morning, the town was full of roofing contractors.  The insurance companies have their own repairmen who do the work for the amount the adjuster states, plus your deductible. Then another roofing company comes by “So and so isn’t any good, you should use me.” Now the confusion! Which one do you use? Of course we want the best job done. I guess this is a

The Perfect Paleo Picnic

Holistic Family Healthcare

with Dr. Sara Hart, ND, MSOM, LAc

It’s the time of year to spend more time each day outdoors than in.  Eating meals outdoors on the patio or at the park is a great way to soak up the sun or relax in the shade and enjoy the season!

Reflexively, we may reach for the sandwiches, chips, pasta salad, juice boxes, and beer.  But taking a moment to consider what our bodies might really want, and we just might find our perfect picnic looks completely different.

What is Paleo?
The Paleo diet, short for Paleolithic, is a dietary trend that is changing people’s energy, sense of vitality, digestive

The 37th annual Lyons “Good Old Days” are over and seemed to have gone pretty well, except the big hail storm Friday night.  A near calamity to many who were caught all of a sudden with big hailstones pounding their heads.  One of the carnival men was taken to the hospital, pounded by the hail, using his body to protect kids.  Our thanks to you!  Over one hundred were crowded together under the tent and were fearful of it blowing away. It has been years since we had so much hail!  Following that hail everything was cancelled for Friday, but recovered on Saturday, and all had a great time.
