A Year in Review 2011

In order to allow Lora and I, and our many contributing writers, photographers, proofreaders, and columnists to enjoy the holidays and school break with family and friends, The Lyons Recorder will continue with our tradition of “The Year In Review” edition of the paper. This will be a two-part series; Part I to be published on December 29, and Part II on January 5. We hope that everyone in the community had a very Merry Christmas, and we also hope that 2012 will indeed be a very happy and prosperous New Year for everybody! Thank you all for your continued support of the paper.

Ask the Handywoman! with Kheli Mason

I was asked recently what I thought was the most important tool a Handy Woman (or Man) should have. As a business woman, of course the first thought that came to mind was a phone. Use it to call me! But, setting aside the obvious, it really is a good question.

You Rock boys!

Dear Editor,
I had the pleasure of being a Lyons Lions football team mom this year, but I didn’t do it alone. Not only did I have two amazing co-captains who did just as much as I did – Liz Triffet and Denise Dick-Clark – but I had other parents who stepped up so much (Paul Triffet, Michelle Titus and Brian Kalvig are just three who come to mind) that I have to say: Lyons rocks!
