The Lyons youth baseball team for 13 to 14 year olds is looking for at least four additional players so they can form a second team. (They have too many players for one team, and slightly too few to form two teams.) Also, one head coach is needed for the second team, as well as volunteer coaching help for all age levels teams.

It's time to start planning for next month’s annual Lyons community garage sale and the spring cleanup, coordinated by the Sustainable Futures Commission (SFC). The events will be held on consecutive Saturday mornings: the Lyons community garage sale will be held on Saturday, May 12, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The Lyons annual spring cleanup day will take place Saturday, May 19, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The purpose of the community wide garage sale is to promote reuse of resources and materials. Hosting or participating in a garage sale is one way to extend the life of useable materials and save (or make) some money in the process.

Late last Thursday morning (April 12) half a dozen government-type SUVs as well as two Boulder County Sheriff's vehicles were congregated in the parking lot behind the St. Vrain Pharmacy. One's first thought had to be, “Oh no, did they get robbed again?” Officials from the Sheriff's Office quickly put that line of reasoning to bed. “This is not a Boulder County Sheriff's operation, we are only here to assist the DEA (Drug Enforcement Agency),” was the official response.

If you’ve utilized the recycling roll-offs near Town Hall, you’ve probably seen items placed there that should be in the trash or maybe donated to a thrift store. Items placed in or around the site are sometimes placed there by well-meaning individuals in hopes that someone will want their dresser with a broken drawer, or an old cathode-ray TV.
