Keeping Lyons Fit! by Mary Chase
We are twenty plus days into 2014. Last year was quite a year for Lyons. Maybe along the way we weren’t able to do the things we wanted to because our daily survival in a flood ravaged town became our priority. So since life has now returned to as close of a normal daily life as possible, I have heard

Another week gone by, and we are getting some snow. We do need snow, but this year we are especially leery about the spring runoff. Work is going on in the rivers to block the water from homes and about town. A real worry!

Correction: In the Board of Trustees article of two weeks ago (January 9), I inadvertently left out the word “not” when reporting that Trustee Dan Greenberg expressed concern about the impact a contemplated electric base rate user fee increase would have on users who were currently in their homes.
