You move into the community, you work hard, you’re industrious (some might even say, “eager”), you build your dream home, right on the river, you start a family, then suddenly there’s talk around Town Hall of “blowing up” or “tearing down” all your hard work. Such is the plight of modern-day beavers when they build without a permit in Lyons.

Say something positive

Dear Editor,
Nuclear plants are basically a (dangerous) way to create steam (which in turn provides electricity). There are better ways, and if these two “better ways” (plants) broke down, the most dangerous thing that would happen is that it (the plant) would be ruined, and have to be rebuilt.

Don’t be Scammed by Fake IRS Communications

IRS TAX TIP 2011-38

The IRS receives thousands of reports each year from taxpayers who receive suspicious emails, phone calls, faxes or notices claiming to be from the Internal Revenue Service.  Many of these scams fraudulently use the Internal Revenue Service name or logo as a lure to make the communication more authentic and enticing. The goal of these scams – known as phishing – is to trick you into revealing personal and financial information. The scammers can then use that information – like your Social Security number, bank account or credit card numbers – to commit identity theft or steal your money.

Leaving Sendai - An Eye Witness Account

Leaving Sendai - An Eye Witness Account

By Nick Schneider

Editor’s Note: Lyons resident Nick Schneider is an astronomer at the University of Colorado specializing in planetary science. He had been invited to a conference in the field at Tohoku University in Sendai, Japan, from 8-11 March. The earthquake and tsunami struck Sendai on March 11, at approximately 2:45 p.m., Japan time.   

Some of you have asked for my account of events in Japan, and the rest of you are just going to get it. I wanted to write it down anyway so I didn’t forget any part. Remember though, that however alarming it was for me, my family, and my friends, there are undoubtedly hundreds of thousands of stories scarier still, and not all with happy endings.
