Unfair And Inaccurate Criticism

Dear Lyons Community,
Everyone is entitled to their own opinion about whether or not to support a new library facility for Lyons, but I was disappointed to recently read unfair and inaccurate criticism leveled at the Library Steering Committee.

Creating a 21st century multi-media library in Lyons has long been a community goal. In 2008, the Economic Development Council prioritized a better library as one of its key economic development strategies based on empirical evidence of the links between a good library and downtown economic

By John Salazar, Commissioner of Agriculture

Later this month, Coloradans from across the state will converge on Pueblo for the 141st Colorado State Fair.  While the event promises a top-notch carnival, national recording artists, and entertainment galore, don’t forget the true mission of the fair is based on agriculture and education.

The Colorado State Fair is the centerpiece of our effort to educate the public on the importance of not only the food system, but on the efforts of the entire agricultural

What LSC was designed to do

Dear Editor:
Next week, the County Commissions will vote on whether to form a new library district in the greater Lyons area.  If the district is formed, the existence of the Library Steering Committee (LSC), which has lead the effort to create a new library/resource center in Lyons, will end.  With this (hopeful) transition in mind, let’s take a moment to consider what the LSC has accomplished.

Boulder/Larimer County Commissioners To Meet With Lyons-Area Residents

By Mark Browning

Two heads are supposed to be better than one, but is the same thing true for County Commissions? Lyons area residents will have the chance to see for themselves on Thursday, August 29, when the Boulder and Larimer County Commissions will hold a rare joint public hearing at Lyons Town Hall. The hearing is set for 5 p.m., with a short tour by the Commissioners of the current Depot Library (likely to occur just prior to the hearing).

The idea for a combined public hearing arose at prior separate Commission meetings concerning the Lyons Library Project Steering Committee’s requests to establish a new regional library district, and approve a tax mill levy ballot measure to fund the district.  The Commissioners themselves
