Scolded Again

The Board of Trustees (BOT) was once again scolded Monday night at Town Hall during the audience business portion of the agenda. This time the scolder was former Trustee Ed Bruder who took issue with the notion that Commercial Eastern Corridor (CEC) zoning status should even be considered for the River Bend wedding venue property on the western border of town. Bruder, who was on the Board when the CEC zone was first discussed and created, vehemently felt that the “perks,” (uses by right, density allowances, mixed use, etc.) which go along with those properties in a CEC zone were

About Town with LaVern Johnson - August 13, 2015

In the interest of full disclosure, let it be known that the author of this column is an elected official. Her opinions are hers, and do not necessarily reflect those of the entire Board of Trustees.    

Here it is another week, and soon, it’ll be time for school to start (see this weeks plans below).
It is time for Rock Mountain Folks Festival, and the town is filling up. Song School, concerts, most days and nights are sold out. It is enjoyable. If you don’t go, put up your signs, sit outside, and enjoy the music.

A Renaissance Woman

Lyons Life by Ken Signer

Editor’s note: Ken Singer is an Apple Valley resident who will be a regular contributor to the Lyons Recorder featuring stories of interest about the community.

Several people from Lyons have described Diane Dandeneau as a “Renaissance woman.” Her many talents give credence to the label. However, Diane downplays her considerable abilities as a painter, songwriter, musician, and environmentalist. Her experiences in life have given her a variety of tools, which she brings to her work.

Too Many For A Clown Car

The Occasional Curmudgeon by Gary L. Moore

Editor’s Note: Through the years, The Occasional Curmudgeon has, when things got to the point that he could no longer hold his tongue (or pen) occasionally commented through a column in the Lyons Recorder about what was going on in Lyons. Gary and his wife are moving to Oregon, and we wish them well, and thank him for his contributions to the paper over the years.

As I write this, there are seventeen “main” candidates and another twelve “maybe” candidates for the Republican nomination as their candidate for the position of President of the United States.  

Some of these people would be recognizable to almost anyone in this country. How could we not know who Bush is, after seeing the other Bushes sitting in the Oval Office?  Christie is hard to miss. He looks like a modern version of President Taft
