After five games, the Lady Lions softball team have had what can only be described as an “up and down” season. Earlier last week Greeley Central was completely stymied by the Lion’s pitching and defense. Greeley was only able to scratch out two runs on two hits over six innings, while Lyons belted eleven hits and crossed the plate a dozen times.
The first score of the game was by Madison Johnson, who scorched a deep triple and scampered home on a passed ball on the very next pitch. As the game went on the bats got hotter; Aisland Khlief doubled in the fourth for a pair of RBIs, Claire Busby had two singles to notch two RBIs of her own. Shaeli Herman had a pair of singles, and Madison Johnson had two singles to go with her triple. Liz Jonjak who also roped a triple, had two hits, a pair of RBIs, and a couple of runs scored.

How on earth can a town of 528 people, one post office, three restaurants, and one community center end up hosting one of the world’s greatest ensembles? “It’s hard to believe, isn’t it,” laughs Old Gallery Board member Margie Patterson. “But you’d be surprised at how much we’ve got going on in our little community.”
For one thing, the community galvanized and raised one million dollars toward the recently-completed renovation of The

As the two-year anniversary of the September 2013 flood quickly approaches, a group of Confluence Area residents had originally scheduled a neighborhood meeting at one of their residences, and invited a Town of Lyons Trustee or two to attend so that the residents’ complaints and issues concerning the permitting process for rebuilding their homes could be addressed and validated. Trustee Dan Greenberg, himself a former Confluence resident/landowner and unofficial contact

Two years after the historic and devastating floods, we find ourselves still in the early stages of rebuilding. To the occasional visitor driving through town, it would be easy to think that Lyons is fully recovered. A drive down Main Street does not offer views of vacant parks, empty homes, and partially repaired roads. For those of us who call Lyons home, it is evident that our small town is still recovering. Over the next years, we will see non-stop construction all over town. The
