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.

Over the last three years, the web site of the Lyons Recorder has quietly grown in popularity. Each day more than 150 readers visit lyonsrecorder.com. Use of tablets and smart phones has grown from almost nothing to more than 30 readers each day.
Newspaper management is pleased with the growth. It’s as if they purchased one newspaper and gradually grown it into two. Those that prefer their news in print need not fear. The Lyons Recorder is format neutral. It will continue to provide the news in print as long as there are subscribers that prefer print. And it will continue to provide the news on the latest technology.
The Lyons Recorder celebrates our web site’s 3rd year by relaunching it with many improvements. Our biggest improvement is support for tablets and smart phones. We’ve changed the organization and layout so that it fits on small screens much better. Readers with laptops and traditional monitors benefit from a new layout that adjusts to fill their screen size.
We’ve upgraded our calendar and classified systems. They’re simpler to use and easier to read.
We’ve added the ability for readers to send us news.
We’ve added an on-line store. Readers can purchase print subscriptions, on-line subscriptions, or a combined subscription. Subscriptions prices remain at $39 per year. Subscriptions outside of Boulder County which include print remain at $44 per year. Shoppers can pay with credit card or check.
