Dancing On Top Of The World

Area teenager (15) Emma Clark attended Lyons Elementary and Middle Schools, and is a sophomore at Fariview High School. She has been dancing since shortly after she learned how to walk. Somewhere along the line, it was Irish dancing that caught the eye and heart of this young colleen. For the last ten years she has been perfecting her steps at the Moriarty-Moffitt School of Irish Dance in Longmont, under the tutelage Jennifer Moriarty and Susannah Moffitt. 

It has always been Emma’s dream to compete in World Championship of Irish Dancing; sort of the Olympics of Irish dancing. Last

Pot & Housing; What else?

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!

La Fiesta Esta Aqui!

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

Vote “YES” on 2, to Keep Our Schools

Dear Neighbors,
What if we lost our schools because we don’t have housing for families with kids to fill them?
After many years of hard work and dedication on everyone’s part, Lyons has schools that excel, not only in the St Vrain Valley but, in the state and nation. 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

Dedicating A New Home

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
