Here it is another week. May is rolling along and we are very lucky we didn’t get last night’s big hail storm. Cross your fingers. We had two big hail storms in the last three years, and just about everyone in town has their new roof. We don't need anymore hail!



Ah, May Day, did anyone get a surprise May Basket? An old custom, for sure. Anyway, a nice snow storm with lots of moisture. However, we have had only twenty-two inches of snow in April, and we usually have fifty-five inches. That is bad. 



Another nice day. Spring has sprung. The trees are beautiful. The jonquils and other flowers planted by the Garden Club are beautifying the town. Thanks to all.
It was truly a glorious Easter; churches were filled; lots of Easter egg hunts, potlucks, and the Fire District’s longtime Easter egg hunt moved to Planet Bluegrass on Sunday. Happy Easter to all.



Here it is, the last few days of April. The trees and flowers are blooming. We have had two good rains, and things are starting to green up. Now it's time to get ready for May Day, where folks used to take a May basket to a friend, knock on the door and run, if caught they got a kiss (those were in the olden days). Life goes on!

THE LYONS HIGH JUNIOR/SENIOR PROM was held last Saturday, at the Lionscrest Manor (thanks to Bob and Leona Forsberg for providing this beautiful facility each year) with dancing, games, and the crowning of Queen CeAnn Udovich, and King Aaron Vasquez. The court was Amanda Romero, Taylor Christiansen, Maddie McGuire, April Valdez, Bridger Keane, and Kyle Frohline.  An

Gremlins changed my news last week, from Dave Orback to Dave Arabic. Sorry! (Editors note: It wasn’t gremlins, nor was it your fault. It was “auto


Another week gone by, and it's back to school and work after spring vacation. Many folks traveled out of town. Betsy Hubner and her granddaughter went to Paris. How wonderful. What a nice grandma!

Easter is this Sunday; it's a time of spring, the trees are filled with blossoms. It's a time for rebirth, and a time to renew our faith. We had some much-needed moisture to help with the fire danger, and we are steadily recovering from the 2013 flood. Yes, it is a time to say our thanks for all our blessings. Praise the Lord!



Another week gone by. One of sadness, as we note that Janet (Brackett) Orbach passed away Saturday morning of brain cancer, which was discovered in January. The daughter of Fran and Bill Brackett, Janet was a member of the Lyons High School class of 1967. She was married to Dave Arabic for forty-nine years; mother to daughter Heather (husband  Matt and two children) and brother Jack. Plus many relatives of the
