Say, that was a nice snow we had Monday. It looks like spring is just around the corner. A nice spring snow that melted right away, some crocus are blooming, the days are longer, and Daylight Savings Time is this Sunday morning at 2 a.m., turn your clocks forward one hour. Yes, spring is sprung.
FOR YOUR SAFETY
When the trailer home burned last week, we wondered if it had smoke detectors? I haven’t heard, but that is one thing we must all purchase; a smoke detector as well as a carbon monoxide detector. The cost is around $30 for both. Go to Clark’s Hardware today, and be safe. We read where James of the trailer needs clothing (Pants size 30” x 32”, shirts size large, and shoes size 10)) and household goods. Help him out. Leave stuff at the firehouse, as he lost everything in that fire!

Slow the Dance
Let your soul purpose be your sole purpose.
Let your arms float on the air
Greeting the universe with the
Let your knees bend
one by one
Sink into the earth
only to rise again.
Slow the dance
keep the energy high
You’ll make the right steps
For there are no mistakes
When you heart beats pure
essence of life
Slow the dance
Let the universe in.

After some hard times, the Lyons Golden Gang has had a bit of four-leaf-clover luck over the winter months. Three large donations came their way: from the Town of Lyons, from the organizers of the Holiday Craft Bazaar, and from the Lyons Polar Bear Club.
The chilly water and brisk temperatures did not deter those frisky Polar Bears from jumping into the St. Vrain River at Black Bear Hole last month. Lyons local Harry Kellogg again contacted Vance French about donating all the funds raised to the Lyons Meals on Wheels (MOW)

It’s the time of year for the lagging New Year’s fitness resolution. You may be looking for a way to get back on track with your fitness goal. Maybe a fitness class or a personal trainer is the way to jump start the resolutions back on track, but what should you be looking for in that trainer or class?

Lyons artist Tyler Voorhees will be the featured artist at The Stone Cup beginning this Friday, March 1. His show will hang for two months, through the end of April.
From his humble beginnings in rural South Dakota, Voorhees has always been drawn to the art of storytelling. With his paintings, and the characters that inhabit them, he seeks to spin a visual yarn by drawing the viewer in with the composition, and holding their attention with the details. His mixed media paintings depict jobs now forgotten by the majority of Americans, made obsolete by advancements in technology (which are also hidden in the paintings). These occupations existed a mere century ago, yet they have fallen to the wayside in the collective memory of our society.

From the earliest recorded history, midwives have been attending women in birth. In fact the etymology of the very word “midwife” comes from Middle English and means “with women.” Before the 1600s almost all babies in the world were born into the hands of the community midwife. Even in 1910, fifty-percent of the babies born in this country were attended by midwives.
