Fox News In Town

A couple of weeks ago it was  a movie crew filming “Dear Eleanor,” Tuesday morning at 6:45 a.m., it was a news crew from the Fox Network in Denver visiting Lyons to do a “live remote” about the extreme fire danger in Colorado. Why Lyons?

Well, Monday afternoon while he and his crew were attending a medical assist for a mountain biker who had gone over his handlebars up at Hall Ranch, Fire Chief J.J.

“Heart of Lyons” Visioning Session

By Chrystal DeCoster
A “hub” can be defined as, “The central part of a wheel, rotating on or with the axle, and from which the spokes radiate” or “A place or thing that forms the effective center of an activity, region, or network.”

The time is nigh for defining the potential hub of Lyons.

Last Wednesday, May 29, at 7 p.m., at Lyons Valley Village, an open public meeting was held toward this end. Information was gathered from the roughly sixty attendees at this visioning session, where maps were offered for clarification, bubble diagramming and insights from experts
