Last week in the article, “The Skinny on Fats.” I wrote about the information we can gather from understanding our blood work results relating to our body's fat metabolism; cholesterol, triglycerides and more.

As our society transitioned from an agrarian culture influenced primarily from ancestral dietary traditions, the convenience factor startedRead more: The Fat About Fats

Undefeated Blue Mountain Stone got the night off Monday evening on the adult co-ed softball schedule of games in Bohn Park, and a pack of “also rans” used the league leaders’ respite to nip at the heels of the “Big Dog!” The Natural Disasters, McHeaters, and the Paddy Whackers, all sporting 2 – 1 records, seized the opportunity and won their respective contests to pull within a half a game of the Quarryworkers.

Apparently the phone lines and cyberspace at Town Hall were filled with “mixed” reviews concerning the weekend’s Lyons Outdoor Games on Monday. Some thought the event was “bigger and better than ever,” while others feared for their lives (and the well being of their pets) because of the fireworks, loud music, and rowdy behavior. According to Town Administrator Victoria Simonsen, she, Town Staff, and event organizers will be sitting down sometime next week to “debrief” and try to determine what worked well, and what needs to be adjusted.
