Sight Unseen
By Bonnie DiSalvo

How long were you gone
From the corner of my eye?
And then came back
A stranger.
Full of wrath
And evil words
Of doom and retribution.
Where did you go
In that blink of an eye?
To become a lost lover
Tearing shreds
In my heart
And blurring my vision.

Grace Ellen Snyder French

Grace Ellen Snyder French

Grace Ellen Snyder was born to a Pioneer farm family on March 30, 1928, near Berthoud, CO.  Grace was the fifth child of nine to bless this family.  Her young life was spent on the family farm, learning the lessons of this hard life, in preparation for the eventual large family that she raised.  Grace met and married the love of her life, George Harvic French, and they married in Boulder, on April 27, 1944.  George and Grace lived on a farm North of Hygiene until 1949, when they relocated to West of Lyons.  Here, she raised five of their six children, hauling water, and with no electricity for several years. They lived here until 1960, when they moved into the Town of Lyons, where they finished raising their family.  Grace

About Town - August 8, 2013

That was a great rain Saturday evening, and nice to have.  Luckily there was not much hail or a tornado with it. We lucked out. I hear over TV that the roofers swarmed into Windsor and Erie on Sunday morning, all trying to get the most jobs. By the signs around town, about two-dozen roofing companies swarmed into Lyons last month, each telling you “they are the best.” How do we know! According to the TV, you should get three bids for replacing your roof, do not pay ahead, and make sure you get a good job.

Tuesday was National Night Out with the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office holding their annual  crime and

Paddling To Alaska - Part Six

By Kelly Yelverton


Editor’s Note: Lyons resident Kelly Yelverton recently graduated from Lewis & Clark College in Portland, Oregon.

She will be sending updates and photos of her adventure throughout the summer.

We made it to Ketchikan on July 21, after having paddled over seven hundred miles in fifty-two days. From our previous campsite we had decided to make the thirty-mile

Transforming And Understanding Health

Holistic Family Healthcare with Dr. Sara Hart, ND, MSOM, LAc

Do you ever feel confused about what your diet should be  or wish to have alternatives to pharmaceutical medicine?  Have you questioned the balance of vitamins and pharmaceuticals in your routine to wonder how what you do today might affect you long-term? 

Information can be extremely confusing about health and it often can feel like every bit of information out there conflicts with something else.  When it comes to navigating our own health choices, it can be
