In celebration of the lovely month of February, we not only have the opportunity to express our love to those in our lives, view the beautiful creations depicting love in coffee shops, galleries, and living rooms all around, but also emphasize the evaluation and support of heart health in the healthcare world.
More than just a pump, the heart is the electromagnetic center of the body, existing with the rhythm that drives our every moment and interaction. Stop for a moment, feel alongside the neck below the jaw line or feel the thumb side of the wrist for the familiar beat of your pulse. Take a minute to feel the rhythm within you and appreciate theRead more: Follow your Heart

Valentine’s Day should have brought out a lot of love for your companion: a great dinner, flowers, and of course a box of candy. It is always nice to tell her or him that you appreciate them putting up with you and your traits in spite of it all. Happy Valentine’s Day, you all!
CAN YOU IMAGINE?

The number one killer of women in the United States is cardiovascular disease. More women die from heart disease than from the next three causes of death combined, including all forms of cancer. While the story of a man experiencing the classic chest crushing heart attack is prevalent in movies and television; the symptoms for a woman may be more subtle and are sparingly told in our popular media. We are too often uninformed that women may experience a heart attack as neck, shoulder, upper back or abdominal discomfort; as a fullness, indigestion, or choking feeling; nausea or vomiting; with sweating, lightheadedness,Read more: February Is Heart Health Month

We had a cold eleven degrees this morning, but no snow. We have to look toward spring snows. A few years ago we had three feet on May 7, which broke the trees, shrubs, etc, causing a lot of damage. We can’t control the weather!
Be sure to send your best girl and guy a box of chocolates, which should get you in good graces for a few weeks. This is the time to appreciate our loved ones, those that are here, those that have passed, and to appreciate our world filled with romance and love. As stated before, Mr. LaVerne would always sneak a big valentine on my typewriter,

Planet Bluegrass announced on Monday that three-day passes for this year’s forty-first annual RockyGrass Festival (July 26 through 28) sold-out in early January, exactly one month earlier than ever before. But take heart fellow Lyons residents, as with past years Planet Bluegrass has graciously reserved a large block of both three-day passes and single-day tickets to sell to Lyons locals. These tickets will be sold exclusively at The Stone Cup beginning next week on Wednesday, February 20.
As with past years, approximately half of these tickets will be sold at a “locals” discount rate. Three-day RockyGrass Festival passes will be discounted to $120 (includes a $15 discount) and single-day tickets will be discounted to $50 (includes a $5 discount). After the allocation of discount tickets are gone, the remaining “locals” tickets will be sold at the regular price. These special Lyons “locals” tickets will be available only at The Stone Cup. Payment must be made via cash or local check. No phone or internet orders will be accepted. A local ID or proof of residency in the 80540 zip code is required. This offer is limited to two tickets per person.
Single-day RockyGrass tickets will not be available to the general public until Thursday, February 21. So Lyons locals will have the first opportunity to purchase these tickets. Based on the historic demand for three-day passes, these tickets may sell-out quickly.
This year they will be welcoming back many RockyGrass favorites including Del McCoury Band, Sam Bush Bluegrass Band, Carolina Chocolate Drops, and Blue Highway. This year’s festival will also bring together many unique collaborative efforts such as a special “Only-At-RockyGrass” all-star bluegrass set from thirteen-time Grammy winning dobro player Jerry Douglas and the meeting of jamband and bluegrass worlds from Keller Williams and the Travelin’ McCourys.
The complete 2013 RockyGrass single-day lineup:
• Friday, July 26 - Del McCoury Band; Tim O’Brien; Kruger Brothers; The Steeldrivers; Kathy Kallick Band; Helen Highwater; Jayme Stone; and Front Country
• Saturday, July 27 - Jerry Douglas and Friends; Carolina Chocolate Drops; Sam Bush & Del McCoury; Blue Highway; Old-Time Kosmik Trio, featuring Darol Anger, Bruce Molsky and Rushad Eggleston; I Draw Slow; and The Deadly Gentlemen
• Sunday July 28 - Sam Bush Bluegrass Band; Keller Williams and The Travelin’ McCourys; Peter Rowan; Andy Statman Trio, featuring Tim O’Brien and Michael Cleveland; Head for the Hills; Cahalen Morrison and Eli West; and a Sunday morning Gospel set
Planet Bluegrass also announced that discounted “locals” tickets for the twenty-third annual Rocky Mountain Folks Festival (August 16 through 18) will be available later this spring. For more information, please visit www.bluegrass.com, or call (303) 823-0848.

In the interest of full disclosure, let it be known that the author of this article is married to the Mayor.
No one got married at the Board of Trustees (BOT) meeting Monday night, but the Trustees and Staff did say good-bye to Lyons Substation Supervisor Sgt. Kevin Parker (the old) who in his last duty as Supervisor introduced the Board to his replacement, Sgt. Nick Goldberger (the new). Parker then made his exit, and Goldberger gave his first report to the Trustees. He reported that he had been on the new job for just under one day, and therefore didn’t have much to report.
Under the hat of the Liquor Authority, it was then on to granting Town of Lyons a special event permit to host the next Chamber of Commerce social at the skating rink in Meadow Park. Since there is traditionally beer and wine served at these functions, and since it is being held in a Town park, the permit was needed. The measure was approved in short order with a 7 to 0 vote.
