One Slip Backwards Can Kill The Whole Deal

Dear Community,
It takes only one slug, one rotten spot in a pumpkin to kill the entire fruit of the seed planted. From that moment on there is no return to the value placed in planting the seed, its embodied positive energy and promise. Yet the green bean has the ability to become rotten here & there without infecting the rest of the plant. Its isolated attack between two beans can be sliced for remaining parts in a favored recipe, enjoying a garden-to-table meal like no other. You may get the impression this is about food, seeds, gardening.

Jenlo Farm, Where are you going? Lyons, Where are you going?

Dear Lyons Community,

JenLo Farm sits directly across from Cemex, on Ute Highway. Before it was a highway, it was a country road, and before that a wagon trail and before that, a trail—a Ute trail from winter campgrounds here where we live, to summer campgrounds in the mountains west of Lyons.

To The Community:
On April 11, the Parks and Recreation Commission recommended to the Town Board of Trustees to further develop Bohn Park by upgrading some current facilities and equipment and by adding a new ball field.  I am opposed to that portion of the recommendation relating to the construction of a new ball field and am requesting the BOT not approve it.

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.
