Great Service!

Great Service!
Dear Lyons Volunteer Fire Department,
While visiting our son and family during the holidays, I took a fall. I want to thank the Lyons volunteer Fire Department and the paramedics for the quick response and assistance. Being so far from home, their care and kindness was very much appreciated.

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.
Joseph Lekarczyk and Lora Gilson
The Lyons Recorder

37th Holiday Bazaar offers time-honored traditions, raises funds for library

An important part of Lyons’ charm is its sense of history. Offering the same event for 37th years, without dramatic changes, is one way to keep a part of the past in the present. At holidays especially, people appreciate the sense of continuity and connections to the past.

BOT Approves Christmas Present For Residents

by Joseph Leckarcayk

In the interest of full disclosure, let it be known that the author of this article is married to the Mayor.

The good news is, it looks like the residents and business owners of Lyons are getting a nice little Christmas present under the tree this year compliments of the Board of Trustees (BOT). The bad news is, the tag reads “Do Not Open Till Spring.” The Trustees voted unanimously Monday night to instruct Administrator Victoria Simonsen to proceed with the drafting of an ordinance that would drop all water user base rates, residential and commercial, by approximately eight dollars per month.

Tools for Christmas

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.
