Lyons Volunteers work hard, and get hungry and thirsty. Some actually skip lunch to finish up their projects. Water bottles and lunch vouchers for seven dollars off a meal anywhere in town are generously provided, but clearing debris, shoveling, cleaning, etc., can make volunteers wistful for a soda and snacks.

The ship docked along the street in Puerto Vallarta on Thursday at 8 a.m. The cruise line offered plenty of excursions to fill the two days in port; from city highlights, to swimming with dolphins, or horseback riding. Our Jazzdagen group planned an excursion of its own.
A bus provided transportation for our group to lunch in a restaurant known to be safe, the Rivercafe. The group spent midday in the casual

Lyons resident Larry Quinn, who lives along the banks of the South St. Vrain River, sent a “pointed” letter to the Boulder County Commissioners concerning the lack of debris removal along the river, and the potential it caused for downstream flooding during the spring run-off (see his Letter to the Editor). Quinn’s letter got a quick response from Boulder County Flood Recovery Manager Garry Sanfacon, who sent the following press release.Read more: Report Potential Emergency Flood Hazards To 911

Last week was a strange week; seventy degrees on Saturday and snowing Sunday, and nice again on Tuesday. It helps green the grass, but is scary about the run-off.
APRIL 15: The day to get your income tax returns in, or file for an extension. This is always a trying day to millions, including yours truly.

The Lyons’ Lions baseball team had a pretty good week. They played a total of three games last week, winning two out of the three games. However, the last game of the week was an away game Saturday versus the Eaton Reds. Eaton had their bleachers full of fans on a nice warm

Dominated by 5A schools, the two-day Pomona Invitational at Jeffco Stadium on Friday and Saturday, April 11 & 12, provided plenty of opportunities for the Lions, the meets sole 2A school, to mix it up with the state’s top track programs. Between the competition caliber and the meet size with as many as ninety competitors in individual events, scoring opportunities were few. One strategy the Lyons’ coaches use to get

Dear Boulder County Commissioners,
As 33-year residents of unincorporated Boulder County, we have gotten accustomed to total lack of regard of the County Open Space Department to the wishes of its neighbors in the South St. Vrain valley. It has usually been in regard to open space access including the dumping of open space users in our neighborhoods but now it is a matter of public safety to the county as well as Town of Lyons residents.
Like most people in our valley, we have been working our butts off since the September floods to try and get our lives back together. We were out of our home for 145 days and still have lots of work to do. Now we see the spring runoff season approaching and the P&OS
