Folks of all ages, from crawlers to sitters (including some entertaining young people), came together earlier on January 19 at “Motown and More” to let it all hang out in Smokin’ Dave’s Log Cabin. Besides the usual couples and solo dancers, people joined in for some lively group dances, threading about from one to another in medleys. It was a time to be with friends and neighbors; old, new, and people who have been here twenty years but never met. You can watch your friends kick up their heels to “Shout” by the Isley Brothers on YouTube.
Generous food contributions of 275 pounds, and $550 in cash were collected for the Lyons Community Food Bank. Dave Oehlman of Smokin’ Dave’s BBQ and Taphouse donated the use of the log cabin and Zach Tucker of Red Wolf Sound provided support. Monique Sawyer Lang from Lyons Community Food Bank, and all volunteers and participants contributed to a spirited evening of playful community caring and merry making. The photos and video are complements of Steve Lang.
Thank-you Lyons. You Rock! See you at the next dance.

It was a daunting agenda for the Board of Trustees (BOT) Tuesday night. It began with a ninety-minute workshop with the Sustainable Futures Commission’s presentation on net metering, and a review of the Planning and Community Development Commission’s recommendations for regulations to create a site plan review process for the proposed Commercial Eastern Corridor (CEC). Then it was on to the three public hearings and second readings on new ordinances (two for the proposed CEC and one for an electric rate increase). Add to that three first readings for new ordinances (one to createRead more: The Long Slog
