The Boulder County Sheriffs’ Department will be conducting a test of the emergency siren warning system in Lyons. This test is scheduled to take place at 12 p.m. Friday, October 11. This test will be weather dependent, as the Sheriffs’ Department prefers that the test takes place on a clear day, due to the September floods. If conditions are not favorable, the test will be rescheduled for the following Friday, October 18, at the same time.

Torrential rains and flooding have not slowed or disheartened the Lions. Separated by rising waters and road closures that created islands throughout their tight knit community, the dedicated cross-country team of Lyons continued to train on their own. As their own neighborhood was initially declared uninhabitable and the National Guard filed in to assist with evacuations, residents of the BlueRead more: “Lyons Strong” At Broomfield X-C Invitational

“I got some good news, and I got some bad news, which do you want to hear first?” We all know how that joke goes so I’ll start with the good news. First, although there are reports of five deaths so far in Boulder County from this disaster, none are from Lyons. Lyons Substation Supervisor Sgt. Nick Goldberger confirmed this to me. He said one hundred percent of the homes within Lyons proper have been visited by either Search & Rescue, Lyons Fire, BoCo Sheriff, orRead more: Good News, Bad News

All aboard! The Lyons “Pioneer Express” is leaving this weekend on Platform 71 for a trip to fantasy and wonder. Don’t miss it.
Most people who live in Lyons are aware that the railroad played a large part in the development of the town. Beginning in the late 19th century/early 20th century with the Stanley Hotel is Estes Park bringing tourist in, and the Lyons’ quarries transporting sandstone out, and continuing to this day with the Depot Library, there has always been a rich railroad history here. What not many people realize is, that we have what has been described as, “the finest model railroad garden in northern Colorado,” right here in our back yard.
Local model train builder/enthusiast Steve Haskew and his wife Anne (she is a garden designer) are hosting open house this weekend to share his wonderful model train layout and her garden withRead more: All Aboard!

Forget snakes on a plane, Town of Lyons Administrator Victoria Simonsen thought it was her lucky night last Tuesday evening (September 3) when the Board of Trustees meeting ended before 8:30 p.m. That was until she got home and raised her garage door to find a disgruntled town resident coiled up between the tools. A heroic neighbor came to Simonsen rescue, and “relocated” the viper to other accommodations. Lyons residents are urged to be vigilant, the recent warm weather we have been experiencing lately is keeping the snake population “active.”

Dear Lyons Community,
As we all know by now, the Boulder and Larimer County Commissioners have voted and approved creation of the Lyons Library District, so let’s vote in November to Keep Lyons Alive, funding a 21st century facility full of books, audio, business resources, computers, Internet, and meeting spaces at the least; the staff to help us all (from three to one hundred and three in age), and the hours to
