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.

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.

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).

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!

Large Crowd Voices Opinions on MMJ

In the interest of full disclosure, let it be known that the author of this article is married to the Mayor.

Roughly four-dozen citizens (not all of them from Lyons) showed up at Monday night’s Board of Trustees (BOT) meeting to voice their opinions and concerns at the second reading and public hearing for an ordinance on the proposed regulations and zoning for medical marijuana businesses in Lyons. There were, of course, the usual suspects; dispensary owners, employees, mothers against marijuana, teachers, preachers, and the now ubiquitous National Geographic Television crew. New to the mix, were a half dozen patients, who put an interesting, and up to this point mostly unheard, voice into the mix.
