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

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.

It is no wonder that trees around here are struggling.

LEGOS Are Coming

The Skinny on Fats

By Dr. Sara Hart, ND, MSOM, LAc

Deep fried pickles, a rack of ribs, sweet potato fries and pan roasted duck breast are some of the menu favorites here in Lyons.  Who doesn’t want to indulge in the bottom of a keg filled with fried foods from time to time?  While this might sound appealing, it also makes many folks'
