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

By Joseph Lekarczyk
Date Line: Mon., Sept. 16, 9 p.m.

“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.

All Aboard!

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. Beginning in the late 19th century/early 20th century with the Stanley Hotel is Estes Park bringing tourist in, and the Lyons’ quarries transporting sandstone out, and continuing to this day with the Depot Library, there has always been a rich railroad history here. What not many people realize is, that we have what has been described as, “the finest model railroad garden in northern Colorado,” right here in our back yard.

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

Rake, Snake, And Broom

Rake, Snake, And Broom

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.

Dear Lyons Community,
As we all know by now, the Boulder and Larimer County Commissioners have voted and approved creation of the Lyons Library District, so let’s vote in November to Keep Lyons Alive, funding a 21st century facility full of books, audio, business resources, computers, Internet, and meeting spaces at the least; the staff to help us all (from three to one hundred and three in age), and the hours to

Matt Dillon debuts his junior season with a stellar performance that takes the Lions to yet a higher level.

By Renée Haip
The journey of an endurance runner does not begin at day one of official practice each season, but rather is a continuum spanning years.
