There’s A New Chef In Town

There’s A New Chef In Town

Just last month, the Lyons Area Chamber of Commerce held their monthly social at the CrossFit St. Vrain gym. The well-attended affair was catered by Lyons resident Bobby Clark of Clark’s Catering. Clark has been working as a chef for nearly four decades. He got his start as a young kid training as an apprentice under a Master Chef from Switzerland. Once bitten by the cooking bug, he enrolled and graduated (class of 79) from the Kansas City Culinary Institute. Since then he has spent his life moving up through the ranks of Sous Chef to Head Chef at various Country Clubs, retirement communities, and the University of Missouri (Columbia).

Finding Fossils Close to Home

I moved to Colorado from Texas right out of college when I was hired to teach in Jefferson County. I stood awestruck at the sight of Red Rocks Amphitheater from the playground of Bear Creek Elementary. Amazed, I listened to my second graders talk about collecting arrowheads at nearby Soda Lakes. Our favorite unit included dinosaurs and a field trip to the Natural History Museum in Denver. That was a long time ago.

Glue 101: It’s A Sticky Situation (How Tacky)

So, your old wooden dining room chair finally came apart after being loose and wiggly when anyone sat on it (for the last two years!).  Hopefully no one hit the floor when it broke. You go to the big box home center to buy some glue to repair the chair and are confronted by six shelves full of so many different types of adhesives that your head starts to spin. All you want to do is put your chair back together, but what product would be the best for that task?

“Forty Hours” A First Hand Account Of Last Week’s Fire

By Jeff Ruiz

“What a beautiful sky …” I thought to myself as I lounged in the hot spa, looking out through the sun room windows. I’d had a sleepless night, owing to the noise of high winds, and had risen earlier than usual. It was morning twilight in the six-o’clock hour, and the sun had yet to rise over the eastern ridge of Stone Canyon. The clouds were coloring from light orange to deeper orange and back again. The moment was golden. As I took another sip of coffee I remembered this was

To Fly Or Drive, That Is The Question This Summer

Many years ago my friend’s nine-year -old daughter suggested the family buy a motor home so they could drive to Hawaii. Little did she know that sometimes a destination can only be reached by airplanes or boats. With gas prices rising hourly, Channel 9 News did a study recently on which is cheaper: to fly or drive. So, I did a comparison of my own for our Minnesota trip to celebrate a 100th birthday over July 4th.
