About Town -Nov. 14, 2013

NOVEMBER 11, IS VETERANS DAY. Yes, a day to honor our veterans of all wars, who fought for us through the years since 1776, because we did not like the English rule.   Since then we have had many wars, and they are still happening, luckily not in America. But our service men and women are sent to fight overseas, all for the cause to keep Americans save.  We truly owe each and every one of them our deep gratitude. “The Land of the Brave, and the Home of the Free”  God bless and keep you all!

Our thanks to the Lyons High School and other bands of the St. Vrain District who participated in the Veterans Day Parade in Longmont on Monday.

Nick Goldberger reported to the Lyons Board of Trustees (BOT) at Monday night’s meeting that, “Not much has changed since my report last week.” There were no reports of roving bands of looters, no vandals, nor nefarious scoundrels with ill intentions. In short, the

Season Ends For Inspirational Lions

By Oskar LaRue
Author’s note: This final article has a more subjective tone than previous ones - I beg your indulgence - it’s been hard to keep a lid on how proud I’ve been of these twenty boys throughout the season.  Perhaps someday they will appreciate the magnitude of their contribution to their hometown just by playing football!  - OL

“No Excuses, No Regrets”

Last Saturday our Lyons Lions football team traveled to Limon to take on the second-ranked Badgers in the opening round of the Class 1A state playoffs. The heavily-favored Badgers did to the Lions what the recent thousand-year flood couldn’t; they ended the Lions’ 2013 season.
