With Lee Hall & Bob Gilson
Lee: What was the first thing you did after you evacuated Lyons?
Bob: Sat down on a toilet that did not require I fill it with water before use. Didn’t even need to share a flush with someone.
Lee: Ahh, simple pleasures.
Bob: But it didn’t last. The reading rack included an article on inverters.
Lee: Do we really want to hear about this?

The Lyons Lions football squad remained unbeaten after five games as they shut out the winless Nederland Panthers 21-0 in Nederland last Saturday. With the temperature in the thirties and the wind gusting to fifty miles per hour, Lyons’ Coach Brandon Wilkes knew it was going to be a day for running the ball, not passing it. And that’s perfectly fine, since he’s got two guys that usually run for over a hundred yards a game in senior quarterback Logan Watson and senior

Torrential rains and flooding have not slowed or disheartened the Lions. Separated by rising waters and road closures that created islands throughout their tight knit community, the dedicated cross-country team of Lyons continued to train on their own. As their own neighborhood was initially declared uninhabitable and the National Guard filed in to assist with evacuations, residents of the Blue

“I got some good news, and I got some bad news, which do you want to hear first?” We all know how that joke goes so I’ll start with the good news. First, although there are reports of five deaths so far in Boulder County from this disaster, none are from Lyons. Lyons Substation Supervisor Sgt. Nick Goldberger confirmed this to me.

All aboard! The Lyons “Pioneer Express” is leaving this weekend on Platform 71 for a trip to fantasy and wonder. Don’t miss it.
Most people who live in Lyons are aware that the railroad played a large part in the development of the town.

Local model train builder/enthusiast Steve Haskew and his wife Anne (she is a garden designer) are hosting open house this weekend to share his wonderful model train layout and her garden with

Forget snakes on a plane, Town of Lyons Administrator Victoria Simonsen thought it was her lucky night last Tuesday evening (September 3) when the Board of Trustees meeting ended before 8:30 p.m. That was until she got home and raised her garage door to find a disgruntled town resident coiled up between the tools. A heroic neighbor came to Simonsen rescue, and “relocated” the viper to other accommodations.
