Monday was April Fool’s Day however, the weather was not fooling when it was so great Easter Sunday. We hope all enjoyed Easter. The Fire District’s Easter egg hunt with Mr. Bunny was great with lots of kids and lots of prizes. Churches were filled with worshipers happy that the Lord “arose” so many years ago to save us from our sins, and give us something to “look” to at all times. And then, of course, more Easter egg hunts, brunches, dinners with our loved ones, a ride to the hills, games, picnics, etc. An enjoyable day!Read more: About Town - April 4, 2013

Homebirth, as with many modalities of holistic health care, obliges one to be an active participant. In this model, the midwife, pregnant woman, and her loved ones work together as a team. As a midwife I support my clients in this new responsibility and care is individualized to meet the specific needs of each family. Personalized attention is the cornerstone of midwifery care. I share my knowledge and experience so that women can make informed choices. Together we observe pregnancy from a space of trust, addressing general discomforts with holistic options and taking action if medical attention is deemed necessary. The blend of each woman’s self-knowledge, our combined insight, and my clinical skills, provides the guides for creating an optimal pregnancy and birth.Read more: Midwifery Model of Care

If your dishwasher is turning out dull, spotty dishes - leaving you frustrated and annoyed - you're not alone. Spotty and cloudy dishes are a common nuisance for many dishwasher owners across America.
In fact, a recent survey from the makers of OxiClean(r) found that people experience spots and cloudy film on their dishes straight out of the dishwasher an average of five times per month, and 70 percent felt annoyed or frustrated because they didn't know the cause.

Everyone is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day, especially in Ireland! Two hundred and twenty-seven members of the Colorado State University Marching Band traveled to Ireland last month to play and march in the Dublin St. Patrick’s Day parade. It was the thrill of a lifetime, as an estimated 650,000 revelers lined the streets of Dublin for the event. The students spent a week in Ireland, performing several public concerts, visiting castles, feasting, and generally having a great time. Students with a connection to Lyons were senior Nicole Mikoni (trumpet) and sophomores Keith Albertson (trumpet), and Yani Ortega (clarinet).

Lyons residents, Elizabeth Lennert and her husband Eric, knew that they wanted to re-model their 1970s-era home, and thought there must be something better than 1970s energy use. As a part of their re-model process, the Lennerts decided to get a home energy assessment from EnergySmart. Based on recommendations from their EnergySmart advisor, they decided to upgrade the insulation in the walls, attic, and in the floor and crawl/space.Read more: Packing In The Savings

Beginning July 1, Colorado residents may no longer dispose of most electronic waste (e-waste) in their household trash because Colorado landfills may no longer accept e-waste. The change is the result of a new law, the Electronic Recycling Jobs Act. Industry, most businesses, government agencies, institutions, and schools already are subject to e-waste disposal restrictions.
“The new law applies to TV sets, central processing units, computer monitors and peripherals, printers and fax machines, all kinds of laptops and notebook computers, DVD players, VCRs and any video display device with a screen larger than four inches,” explained Wolf Kray, recycling specialist with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. The ban also includes radios, stereo equipment, and video game consoles. Telephones, motor vehicle components, and non-hazardous industrial or commercial devices may still be legally disposed of in a Colorado landfill.Read more: New Ban On Disposal Of E-waste
