Valley Bank & Trust To Permanently Close Lyons Branch

Valley Bank & Trust has announced it will not reopen its Lyons branch, located at 304 Second Avenue. The branch has been closed since September due to flooding, which caused power outages and interruptions in water, sewer, and gas supplies in the area.

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

The win snapped a two-game losing streak and got the Lions into the post-season playoffs. Talk about good timing. But the victory wasn’t as easy as the final score might imply.

Silver and Gold for Lyons

By Renée Haip

The Lyons cross country teams started their current training cycle last summer, meeting and gathering together regularly to train towards common goals and dreams. Under the care and guidance of Coaches Roberts and Boelé and armed with Coach Boelé’s individualized training plans, they took on the work at hand with focus, commitment, and discipline. Nothing—not flood waters, evacuations, or foreign training grounds—could deter them, and on Saturday, October 26th they were set to take on the challenges to be found at the unforgiving 5K state cross country course at Bear Creek Park and the adjacent rodeo grounds at the Norris-Penrose Event Center in Colorado Springs.

We Have a Choice

Dear Lyons Community,

We have a choice as a community. We can choose to build the future Lyons. We can stand up, dust ourselves off and create what we want Lyons to be. Or, we can contract, hunker down and think only about our losses.
