A few months back, The Lyons Recorder did a story on White Light EV, and the proliferation of citizens who are catching the electric vehicle wave in Lyons. The Boulder Daily Camera picked up the story
last week, the Associated Press got on board on Monday and suddenly the story was all over the country from Denver, Colorado,to Charlotte, North Carolina; from Tampa, Florida, to Portland, Maine, and even the Huffington Post on the internet no less! In fact, as of Tuesday at noon, if you Google “golf carts, Lyons CO,” there were 32,100 results in less than a second!
On Tuesday morning Sam Tallent (the “Big Kahuna” of electric golf carts in Lyons) the owner of The Stone Cup and partner in White Light EV, got a call from CBS Channel 4 KCNC News Anchor Tom Mustin wanting to do an “on camera” interview about the story. Tallent contacted Sgt. Kevin Parker of the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office, Mayor Julie Van Domelen, and Lee Hall (who converted several electric golf carts in Lyons to solar power) to be part of the story, which aired at 6 p.m. that evening (Tuesday, July 20). And you thought Lyons was only famous for our music festivals.
