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

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”.

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.

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?
