By the signs around town, about two-dozen roofing companies swarmed into Lyons last month, each telling you “they are the best.” How do we know! According to the TV, you should get three bids for replacing your roof, do not pay ahead, and make sure you get a good job.

The Spring Gulch Men’s Book Club met last Thursday at the Mill Site Inn, near Ward. The club is regarded (by its members) as the oldest men’s book club in the area. This month’s book, “Wort and Pizza” (based roughly on the Tolstoy classic), seemed appropriate as the Mill Site specializes in high-altitude, high-gluten pizza, and well, there always seems to be beer available at their meetings. Pictured are (right to left) Jack St. John, Greg Harms, Dave Brininstool, Clark Hodge, and Mill Site Inn proprietor Carol. Carol commented that we were the first exclusively male book club to visit herRead more: Men’s Book Club Meets In Mountains
