A Year in Review 2011

In order to allow Lora and I, and our many contributing writers, photographers, proofreaders, and columnists to enjoy the holidays and school break with family and friends, The Lyons Recorder will continue with our tradition of “The Year In Review” edition of the paper. This will be a two-part series; Part I to be published on December 29, and Part II on January 5. We hope that everyone in the community had a very Merry Christmas, and we also hope that 2012 will indeed be a very happy and prosperous New Year for everybody! Thank you all for your continued support of the paper.

Although it seemed at times like the Board of Trustees (BOT) were spending all their time and energy with medical marijuana (and a lot of time WAS spent dealing [pun intended] with it), the group did manage to accomplish some other things as well.

You Rock boys!

Dear Editor,
I had the pleasure of being a Lyons Lions football team mom this year, but I didn’t do it alone. Not only did I have two amazing co-captains who did just as much as I did – Liz Triffet and Denise Dick-Clark – but I had other parents who stepped up so much (Paul Triffet, Michelle Titus and Brian Kalvig are just three who come to mind) that I have to say: Lyons rocks!

Tools for Christmas

Ask the Handywoman! with Kheli Mason

I was asked recently what I thought was the most important tool a Handy Woman (or Man) should have. As a business woman, of course the first thought that came to mind was a phone. Use it to call me! But, setting aside the obvious, it really is a good question.

“Sink Or Swim”

Lyons residents Kenyon and Juli Waugh, proprietors of the new Lyons Dairy Bar (138 Main Street, in the Lyons Village Central Plaza) have been hard at work for the last few months giving their 600 square foot ice cream shop a complete make over. They steam-cleaned the entire interior, took the walls down to the studs, installed new windows, poured a new epoxy floor, painted inside and out,

BOT Split On Headquarters

by Joseph Lekarczyk

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

The main event at Monday night’s Board of Trustees (BOT) meeting wasn’t the public hearing for the 2012 Town of Lyons budget (it never is). It was, of course, the medical marijuana issue (no surprise there). At issue,was whether or not to allow Headquarters, which by law must relocate by December 14 to a site outside the 1000-foot limit from a school, an extension of the deadline in order to remodel their future location (the building which currently houses the Red Hill Motorcycle WERX).

American Exceptionalism

Dear Board of Trustee members,
After forging the most thoughtful, inclusive regulations in the State of Colorado, we are being asked to overturn them by the tyranny of the referendum. There is a sunset clause in the regulations that could take place, if it were allowed to. The establishment

The Jamestown Mercantile

by Linda L. Osmundson

The sign on the door read “Closed” and the times of operation stated, “Monday, 4:00.” Still, a car, with the driver’s door open, sat alongside the road in front of The Merc (short for Mercantile), located in the small town of Jamestown. A neighbor offered to go inside to get Rainbow.

Medical Marijuana To Go To The Vote

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 paper (in this case the agenda) it seemed rather straightforward. Ashley Rheingold, owner of Headquarters, a medical marijuana center (mmc) located at 310 Main Street, was asking the Board of Trustees (BOT) at Monday night’s meeting, to approve the relocation of her business
