In Gratitude

Editor,
Sam and I would like to send a thank you to everyone who participated in the 6th Annual Easter Celebration.  We are especially grateful to Craig Ferguson for opening the Wildflower Pavilion at Planet Bluegrass to us.
Heartfelt thanks to Brian and Erin Schey for their help in orchestrating the music, and to all of the other musicians and performers:  Thom Bishop, Eben Grace, Caleb Roberts, Randy Kaplan, Tim Kyer, Wil Masisak, Sally Truitt, Shannon Johnson and Rachel Tallent;  as well as to Ashley Johnson for her delightful children’s story. 
Also, a special thank you to Ed Kean and Steve Rohrbach for engineering the sound. 
In gratitude,
Sam and Mindy

PCDC Wrestles With CEC

by Joseph Lekarczyk

The Lyons Planning and Community Development Commission (PCDC) basically had two things on their agenda Monday night: a public hearing, discussion and recommendation on the Whipp annexation (the Farmette at the bottom of Stone Canyon) and defining the Commercial Eastern Corridor (CEC) zone (which the Whipp property will in all likelihood be a part of).

My displeasure

To the Editor,
I’m writing this letter to express my displeasure over the way I was treated as a member of the public at the April 11, 2011 Parks and Recreations Commission and to further express my displeasure over the way that meeting, and apparently the PRC, is run as a municipal body.

Do You Foo?

Do You Foo?

The great thing about “urban myths,” (i.e. the bloody hook on the car door handle, alligators in the NYC subway tunnels, etc.) is sometimes there is a grain of truth to the tale which makes you want to “believe.” Or, how about the unannounced show, for the “fortunate few” at a small club by a legendary band, just yearning to get back to their roots. It could happen. In fact it did happen to Gail Gordon and Ken Feldman of Lyons and fifty of your best friends!

Beardie Abundance

Beardie Abundance

Colorado Reptile Humane Society(CoRHS) recently received a large number of animals, including eight bearded dragons, when their owner passed away.
There was a generous reponse to a request for habitat donations and the shelter was able to adequately house the animals.  A number of the bearded dragons are now available for adoption.
