There is a lot of news about news reporting lately. We get our news almost instantly, whether something happens in Lyons, or Washington, D.C., or even London, England. But how did people in the pioneer days get their news? How long did it take to get news of a birth or death across from America’s East coast to its West coast? How did Native Americans send messages without a written language? All of these
A Monday, May 7, workshop with the Lyons Board of Trustees revealed several challenges for an affordable housing proposal on the eastern end of Lyons. Development partners presented an update for a mixed-use proposal that includes an innovative food agriculture business, a commercial kitchen, and 45 rental homes for people who make 60 percent of the area median income. Trustees learned that it would be a struggle for Thistle Community Housing to complete the proposed housing with federal and state low-income housing tax credits and even as much as $2 million of federal disaster recovery funds.
