Ask the Handy Woman!

with Kheli Mason, The Handy Woman LLC

Procrastination seems to be one of those human characteristics that some of us have perfected more than others. I would count myself among the more “advanced” practitioners of the “art” (as Lora and Joseph can attest, as they wait for me to submit my column each month!).

Why is hydraulic fracturing important?

To The Lyons Community,
I am writing this letter in response to the hydraulic fracturing scare recently in our county. This is a complex and emotional issue. I am a production geologist employed with a major oil company and deal with hydraulic fracturing on a daily basis, but have no interest in the wells in Boulder and Weld County. I do, however, live in Lyons and care deeply about the environment and the health and safety of its citizens. I agree with Sapan

Thank You

Dear Editor,
I’d like to say thank you to Dave Chase, owner of Redstone Cyclery, for giving me the straight scoop on a bike I brought in for a tune-up. Thank you for saving me money, for asking me what kind of bike riding I want to do, and for giving me sound advice on what to do next. I’m planning to get back riding this year and you are getting me off to a good start.

Thanks again,
Carol Pranschke

Trustees Grapple With Last Minute Issues

By Joseph Lekarczyk
In the interest of full disclosure, let it be known that the author of this article is married to the Mayor.

On the eve of Election Day (Tuesday) the Board of Trustees (BOT) grappled with last minute issues until practically the “witching hour” (midnight, well really about 11:30 p.m.). At issue were an ordinance approving the annexation of the property known as the Vasquez 2 Annexation (the old motel next to the stone yard), an ordinance amending the zoning regulations for the Commercial Eastern Corridor (CEC), a resolution to

Roads Traveld With Linda L. Osmundson

Entertaining The Kids In Metro Denver

The unseasonably warm weather this March fooled Coloradoans into thinking spring is actually here. However, I’ve experienced Colorado snowstorms in May. My Texas brother swears it snowed one Fourth of July when he visited Denver and we attended a fireworks show. I remember it was cold; my pictures prove that I loaned his wife a heavy coat.

What A Town!!!

Editor’s Note: Nick Angelo’s Numbers were based on the non-certified results.

Twenty three people made the difference in regard to the ballot initiative!  That is not a lot, but in a democracy, that’s enough!  Twenty eight people could have voted to deprive patients of their medicine, hard working people of their jobs, and business owners of their livelihood.  But they didn’t, they gave it a little more thought and allowed the concept of tolerance to rule for the day.  At this moment, I am very proud of our little Town!

Three Lyons High Students To Visit Supreme Court

A group of high school students from Denver, Thornton, and Lyons are in for an experience of a lifetime when a University of Colorado Boulder law professor takes them to Washington, D.C. for a moot court competition this weekend (March 29 through April 1). The Lyons students are Sean Flynn, Isabella Solman, and Marcos Rodriguez. The trio was selected because of their high finishes at a regional moot court competition at the CU Law School in Boulder earlier this year.

Thank You

Thank you to Neil and Connie Sullivan,

I  was just in your store yesterday and got a Santa Fe sandwich. YUM!  I was also chatting with some older Lyons residents about the new and improved (what an understatement!) St. Vrain Market. It struck me just how big a difference/improvement you have made to  Lyons with what you have done with the market. Call me silly, but I  think it’s important to

Mobile Devices

Lee: Have you noticed that technology sales people will only describe where a device or plan works well.  Wouldn’t you love it if sales people said things like “this device really sucks at XYZ”?  It would be much more helpful.

Bob: That’s why we’re here.  This is an inverse sales pitch regarding mobile devices and plans. The key word of the column is “sucks”.
