About Town - August 22, 2013

Another week gone by, and an important one. School started last Thursday, with a “Meet and Greet” your teacher at the Elementary, and “Back to School Nights” etc.  A thrilling time for the little ones, finally school; for the 6th graders, finally in Middle School, and of course for the 9th graders, finally in High School. Most of all for the seniors, I finally made it. Good luck to all.
We are ever proud of the fact that Lyons stays in the top for studies.  We may be small but we are mighty. We note in the Department of Education’s Transitional Colorado Assessment

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.

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.

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


Perspective:

2. A mental view or outlook
3. The appearance of objects in depth
4. The relationship of aspects of a subject to each other and to a whole
