During the past week, a number of area residents have reported bear sightings and encounters to city and state wildlife officials. On Wednesday, Aug. 26, four bears were relocated from the city by Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW), and a fifth was relocated the next day. Other sightings have been reported and received media attention. Urban bear activity typically increases in late August as bears enter the stage of hyperphagia, a period of excessive eating to fatten for hibernation. Officials expect an increase in activity this fall because of a food shortage in natural areas.
The Boulder Police Department and Colorado Parks and Wildlife are collaborating on ways to protect people and bears and to let the public know what to do during a bear encounter, how and when to report it to officials, and how they will respond.Read more: Boulder, Colorado Parks and Wildlife Respond to Increase in Bear Activity

After losing only one starting varsity player (Sydney Stevelinck is continuing her volleyball career at Grace University) from their stellar (19 – 6) season last year, the Lady Lions are expecting to challenge Resurrection Christian for the league championship this time around. The team was definitely not satisfied with how last season ended at districts, losing three straight matches. Especially since two of those loses were to teams that

The 2A Lady Lions ended their season last year ranked 13th in 3A ball, and missed going to the state tournament by a single run. With just four seniors graduating and most of the starters still in place the Lady Lions, under second year head coach Amy Renaldi, should have another opportunity to make a solid play-off run.
The returning starters are: Kayla Bunton (Jr.) - CF; Claire Busby (Sr.) - OF; Shaeli Herman (So.) - C; Madison Johnson (So.) – 3B; Liz Jonjak (Jr.) - SS; Aislin Khleif (So.) – 1B; Abbie Liquori (Sr.) - P. Other players on the

There are 404 students in Lyons Middle/Senior High School. In 2015, up until August 1, there had been 204 people killed in mass gunfire shootings (three or more people killed in one shooting) here in the United States. If that average continues, we may expect that about 360 people will die from mass gunfire shootings by year’s end. Or, on a local scale, about 90% of the Lyons Middle/Senior High School population who would have died

Yes, another week gone by, school has started, lots of activities, nice cooler weather, lots of business in town, La Mariposa has opened, etc. However, there are still a lot of complaints as to the weeks it takes to get a permit to rebuild in the flooded area. In discussing this with Town Administrator Victoria Simonsen, she states it is FEMA rules, and the buildings are in the floodplain and they cannot cause “flood rise” from their

“Nothing had taken me over before”, said Kevin Carroll, owner of Lyons Classic Pinball, referring to his obsession with the electric steel ball games.
He had played pinball over the years, but it was just an occasional treat. It wasn’t until he got his first machine as a surprise birthday present from his wife, Carole (yes, she is Carole Carroll) and some friends, that he knew
