Why is hydraulic fracturing important?

To The Lyons Community,
I am writing this letter in response to the hydraulic fracturing scare recently in our county. This is a complex and emotional issue. I am a production geologist employed with a major oil company and deal with hydraulic fracturing on a daily basis, but have no interest in the wells in Boulder and Weld County.

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!

There’s A New Chef In Town

There’s A New Chef In Town

Just last month, the Lyons Area Chamber of Commerce held their monthly social at the CrossFit St. Vrain gym. The well-attended affair was catered by Lyons resident Bobby Clark of Clark’s Catering. Clark has been working as a chef for nearly four decades. He got his start as a young kid training as an apprentice under a Master Chef from Switzerland. Once bitten by the cooking bug, he enrolled and graduated (class of 79) from the Kansas City Culinary Institute. Since then he has spent his life moving up through the ranks of Sous Chef to Head Chef at various Country Clubs, retirement communities, and the University of Missouri (Columbia).

Thank You

Thank you to Neil and Connie Sullivan,

I  was just in your store yesterday and got a Santa Fe sandwich. YUM!  I was also chatting with some older Lyons residents about the new and improved (what an understatement!) St. Vrain Market. It struck me just how big a difference/improvement you have made to  Lyons with what you have done with the market. Call me silly, but I  think it’s important to
