Thank You

Dear Editor,
I’d like to say thank you to Dave Chase, owner of Redstone Cyclery, for giving me the straight scoop on a bike I brought in for a tune-up. Thank you for saving me money, for asking me what kind of bike riding I want to do, and for giving me sound advice on what to do next. I’m planning to get back riding this year and you are getting me off to a good start.

Thanks again,
Carol Pranschke

Bohn-Fire Cancelled

The Town of Lyons and the Lyons Community Foundation (LCF), after discussions with the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office, have decided to cancel the community “Bohn-Fire” which was planned for this Saturday, April 14.

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

On the eve of Election Day (Tuesday) the Board of Trustees (BOT) grappled with last minute issues until practically the “witching hour” (midnight, well really about 11:30 p.m.). At issue were an ordinance approving the annexation of the property known as the Vasquez 2 Annexation (the old motel next to the stone yard), an ordinance amending the zoning regulations for the Commercial Eastern Corridor (CEC), a resolution to

What A Town!!!

Editor’s Note: Nick Angelo’s Numbers were based on the non-certified results.

Twenty three people made the difference in regard to the ballot initiative!  That is not a lot, but in a democracy, that’s enough!  Twenty eight people could have voted to deprive patients of their medicine, hard working people of their jobs, and business owners of their livelihood.  But they didn’t, they gave it a little more thought and allowed the concept of tolerance to rule for the day.  At this moment, I am very proud of our little Town!
