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.

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

The Lyons Board of Trustees (BOT) spent a little over an hour and a half in a workshop Monday evening, hammering out their final (hopefully) strategies for the Intergovernmental Agreement (IGA) with Boulder County. The presentation by Staff included colored maps, keys, and lively discussions. At stake are what properties will be in the “primary planning area,” which ones will be in the “secondary planning area,” who will have “influence over what,” who gets “veto power over whom,” and “how long” the term of the IGA will be.

With grocery bags in hand, people gather around the Lyons Community Church on Wednesday afternoons, waiting to get their free groceries. These Lyons locals are some of the many Boulder County residents who often face the hard decision of choosing between heating their homes and feeding their families.
