Sustainability Needs You!

Sustainability means a lot of different things to different people, which is why when creating the Lyons Environmental Sustainability Action Plan we want your input.

The Town Of Lyons, through Hygiene based Natural Capitalism Solutions, will be conducting stakeholder interviews and a community wide survey during the months of August and September to gauge citizen and business views on the local sustainability issues facing the Town.

Your input will then be used to help guide the creation of the Lyons Environmental Sustainability Action Plan, which is scheduled to be completed at the end of

I have some grievances

Dear Lyons Community,
I have some grievances with the proposed Library District and Library Steering Committee.

A number of years ago when I was on the Town Board I expressed my skepticism about spending $80,000 for a comprehensive Town management plan because

I wasn’t sure it would be used.  But we did create a plan, and the plan was to a significant degree based upon survey results.  Let me share with you some of those survey results.

First in the Lyons Comprehensive Plan Survey on Page 4 the people were asked to, “Please rate Lyons as a community on each of the items listed below.  63.6% of the respondents rated the Quality of the library: very good, good or adequate.

Music And Fun For The Whole Family

This is the fifteenth year of the free Thursday Night Summer Concert Series in Sandstone Park, sponsored by the Lyons Parks & Recreation Department. The event has grown yearly since its inception, and has really taken off this year with the addition of food trucks, the Lyons Farmette’s farmers market, local booths offering massages, and the Lyons Golden Gang selling wine, beer, and soft drinks. The music goes from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., with bands who have ties to Lyons playing for us.

I started booking the bands and helping with their sound almost a decade ago it has been a wonderful, enjoyable time; seeing all the youngsters dancing and running around, and their parents and friends relaxing and enjoying the music.  I meant to write this article earlier this summer but something always came up. But I do want to thank Danny Shafer and his band, Jeff Scroggins & Colorado, The Blue Canyon Boys, and Ash & Andria Ganley with Terry Kishiyama for their

It’s A Family Affair

Sly & The Family Stone weren’t singing the praises of the Meckle family in 1971 when they recorded their number one hit, but they could have been. Earlier this year in March, Dr. Joseph Meckle, D.C., who has had a chiropractic practice here in Lyons for nearly thirty years, had the honor of watching his two daughters, Carly and Jenny, graduate from the Palmer Chiropractic College in Florida.

The young women, both graduates of Lyons High School (Carly in 2002, and Jenny in 2005) received their Bachelor of Science Degrees from Colorado State University in Fort Collins in 2009.

About Town - August 22, 2013

Another week gone by, and an important one. School started last Thursday, with a “Meet and Greet” your teacher at the Elementary, and “Back to School Nights” etc.  A thrilling time for the little ones, finally school; for the 6th graders, finally in Middle School, and of course for the 9th graders, finally in High School. Most of all for the seniors, I finally made it. Good luck to all.
We are ever proud of the fact that Lyons stays in the top for studies.  We may be small but we are mighty. We note in the Department of Education’s Transitional Colorado Assessment

Season Finale, Bring On The Play Offs

There is an old saying in the hills of West Virginia; “If ya wanna run with the big dogs, ya gotta come out from under the porch.” Monday night in Bohn Park, the Natural Disasters came out from under the porch, chased down the big dog (Blue Mountain Stone), and bite him on the backside. Playing in their final game of the regular season, the Disasters were determined right from the outset. Holding their opponents scoreless in the first inning, the Disasters rocked BMS for five scores in the bottom half of the frame. Being down at all, never mind by five runs after one inning is not something the Quarry Workers are accustomed to. With their interest now piqued, Blue Mountain Stone started to get back into the game. With two runs in the second, and
