Roads Traveled With Linda L. Osmundson

For the next daytrip suggestion, I’ll concentrate on historic Georgetown. A long time ago when my husband and I were dating, we’d go skiing then stop on the downhill drive from Eisenhower Tunnel in Georgetown for dinner. By the time we ate a bite, the heavy traffic had cleared away and it was smooth driving into Denver.

Bohn-Fire Cancelled

The Town of Lyons and the Lyons Community Foundation (LCF), after discussions with the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office, have decided to cancel the community “Bohn-Fire” which was planned for this Saturday, April 14. Late last month Boulder County Sheriff Joe Pele issued a fire ban for all of Boulder County. The ban has been relaxed a little in the eastern portions of the County, and with the light snow/rain last week, there was some hope that the ban might be lifted. However, the recent warm, dry, breezy days have evaporated all hope that fire conditions might improve enough to allow the LCF fundraiser.

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

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

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.
