Say, that was a nice snow we had Monday. It looks like spring is just around the corner. A nice spring snow that melted right away, some crocus are blooming, the days are longer, and Daylight Savings Time is this Sunday morning at 2 a.m., turn your clocks forward one hour. Yes, spring is sprung.
FOR YOUR SAFETY
When the trailer home burned last week, we wondered if it had smoke detectors? I haven’t heard, but that is one thing we must all purchase; a smoke detector as well as a carbon monoxide detector. The cost is around $30 for both. Go to Clark’s Hardware today, and be safe. We read where James of the trailer needs clothing (Pants size 30” x 32”, shirts size large, and shoes size 10)) and household goods. Help him out. Leave stuff at the firehouse, as he lost everything in that fire!

It was a big agenda Monday night at the Board of Trustees (BOT) meeting. Chock-a-block full of the usual stuff: work shopping about creating urban renewal districts, a report by Sgt. Nick Goldberger, approving liquor licenses, leasing town land, adopting late fees on utility bills, imposing limits on marijuana grows, approving equipment purchases for Public Works, approving the consent agenda, giving Trustee and Staff reports, etc. The real interesting item came after an executive session concluded and everyone had gone home. By everyone I mean Manny

Lyons artist Tyler Voorhees will be the featured artist at The Stone Cup beginning this Friday, March 1. His show will hang for two months, through the end of April.
From his humble beginnings in rural South Dakota, Voorhees has always been drawn to the art of storytelling. With his paintings, and the characters that inhabit them, he seeks to spin a visual yarn by drawing the viewer in with the composition, and holding their attention with the details. His mixed media paintings depict jobs now forgotten by the majority of Americans, made obsolete by advancements in technology (which are also hidden in the paintings). These occupations existed a mere century ago, yet they have fallen to the wayside in the collective memory of our society.

If you haven’t taken a stroll down Main Street recently, you might be surprised by some of the changes you find the next time you do. For one, the Chubway Sandwich Shop has closed, and will be replaced by an Oskar Blues tasting room where one can sample the latest brews/spirits coming from the brewery/distillery.

From the earliest recorded history, midwives have been attending women in birth. In fact the etymology of the very word “midwife” comes from Middle English and means “with women.” Before the 1600s almost all babies in the world were born into the hands of the community midwife. Even in 1910, fifty-percent of the babies born in this country were attended by midwives.
