Dear Lyons Recorder,
I wanted to comment on the hugely successful 2013 Lyons Outdoor Games (LOG). I have watched this event grow from its infancy into a family-friendly, multi-sport, and activity based three-day event. With growth comes growing pains; however, with growth comes the opportunity for Lyons to grow this event into a nationally recognized destination event that show cases the many attributes our town has to offer (beyond bluegrass). This event, when allowed to prosper, will continue to give back to us and our children for years to come.

We are looking forward to our next trip to Lyons.
Emily, Seth, and Tally

Well, Monday afternoon while he and his crew were attending a medical assist for a mountain biker who had gone over his handlebars up at Hall Ranch, Fire Chief J.J. Hoffman got a call about a wildfire starting up on Eagle Ridge Road just east of Lyons. Due to a quick response and a lot of luck, Hoffman and a second crew were able to contain the fire to a little less than an acre of grass and some tree
