On the agenda was the approval of a license for a recreational retail marijuana grow operation, the first reading of an ordinance to impose a

Whether it can accurately be described as “ironic,” or perhaps “O. Henry-like” (if there is even such a word), is open for discussion, however the result of the request for approval of a retail recreational marijuana business license by Headquarters at Monday night’s special Board of Trustees (BOT) meeting certainly came as a bit of a surprise. It was turned down!

The cold snowy weather last Saturday afternoon couldn’t put a damper on la fiesta for Ramon Vasquez, Carmen Cruz and their children, as scores of family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, and volunteers joined Habitat for Humanity of the St. Vrain Valley to turn over the keys, and dedicate the couple’s new home on Park Street.
The Vasquez family’s home, just a half block from the river, was destroyed in the 2013 flood. Through the help of Lyons Volunteer Coordinator Ed Kean, the family

The Telluride Bluegrass Festival, produced by Lyons’ own Planet Bluegrass, was awarded “Music Festival of the Year” at the 26th Annual Pollstar Concert Industry Awards, held at the Ryman Auditorium last Saturday night, February 21. This marks the first time a Colorado festival or any “bluegrass festival” has ever won this prestigious award.

The most critical part of our school is our students. Without students to fill the elementary school, there will be no high school. Where do the students come from? From

Dear Lyons Community,
On the night of September 11, 2013, this family as well as all of Lyons suffered great trauma and loss in the flood with 30,000 cubic feet of water a second pouring thru town, losing their home and all their belongings, but were glad to survive that fierce water in the middle of the night. Everyone in town was soon evacuated.
I met Carmen at the Longmont Post Office a few days after the flood. She was very distraught and had no idea of what would become of them. Our thanks to
