Tough Road Loss For The Lions

By Kari Basey
It was a quiet week for the Lyons High School boys’ basketball team as they had only one competition, an away game against Denver Christian.

Wildflower Spring Concert Schedule

When the September 2013 floods hit Planet Bluegrass, the raging waters completely destroyed the beloved Wildflower Pavilion concert venue. Though they rebuilt the structure in time for last summer’s festivals, this spring Planet Bluegrass will officially dedicate the new Wildflower Pavilion, complete with state-of-the-art sound and lights, rooftop solar panels, seasonal sliding doors, heating system, and permanent bar areas.
Beginning next month, the Wildflower Pavilion will celebrate its grand reopening concert season with five special Friday evenings of music.

On March 27, cherished singer/songwriter Ellis, a longtime veteran of the Folks Festival and Song School, fills the Wildflower with her whole-hearted songs. Then in April and May the Planet will showcase progressive bluegrass, creative songwriting, and musical virtuosity with veterans of the RockyGrass and Telluride Bluegrass stages: Head for the Hills on April 10; Lindsay Lou & the Flatbellys, and The Lil’

Yes, another week gone by, with some snow and more to come. The TV states that Colorado snow pack is fifty inches below normal. Maybe we will get some spring snows, which will do a lot of good. Spring is just around the corner, the crocus are out beside my driveway
