The Lyons Board of Trustees (BOT) had a light agenda Tuesday night (they met on Tuesday because Monday was Labor Day), but they made up for it with a ninety minute workshop on the wastewater treatment plant upgrade. The Trustees heard progress reports from the Wastewater Treatment Facility Task Force, an ad hoc committee made up of Utility & Engineer Board, Sustainable Futures Commission members Town of Lyons staff, and Honeywell Engineering. Things are apparently

The Rescue Of CeCe The Gull

The Rescue Of CeCe The Gull

By JoLee Wingerson

On Saturday, July 20, at the Boulder Reservoir a number of people approached an adult gull who sat unmoving on the shore as they stood very near to him. He seemed vulnerable and ill. Before long, the lethargic gull was transported to Greenwood Wildlife Center, one of only a small handful of professional wildlife rehabilitation centers in Colorado that care for water birds. The gull received a

Defense Shines In Season Opener

By Oskar LaRue – Staff Writer

The Lyons Lions varsity football team began their season Saturday with a three-hour bus ride to Ellicott, a friendly little town east of Colorado Springs and home of the Thunderhawks. It ended with 13-12 victory for the Lions, making the journey well worth it for players and fans alike.  What happened in between, though, was a hard fought game between two evenly matched and

Lyons Cross Country - 2013 Season Preview

By Renée Haip

After a successful spring on the track and a summer of consistent work putting in miles and building core strength, the boys’ cross country team returns stronger than ever. In Colorado 2A division’s run five, score three format, the defending state champion Lions are once again expected to crush their small school competition all through the season. They figure to be so dominant that they are unanimously ranked number one in Colorado Milesplit’s preseason coaches’ poll.

Beyond a goal of defending their 2012 league, regional, and state titles, the Lions hope to earn one of the few coveted team spots at the Nike Southwest Regionals’ post-season championship race in Mesa, Arizona.

Unfair And Inaccurate Criticism

Dear Lyons Community,
Everyone is entitled to their own opinion about whether or not to support a new library facility for Lyons, but I was disappointed to recently read unfair and inaccurate criticism leveled at the Library Steering Committee.

Creating a 21st century multi-media library in Lyons has long been a community goal. In 2008, the Economic Development Council prioritized a better library as one of its key economic development strategies based on empirical evidence of the links between a good library and downtown economic
