Schools - 8/20/2010
The teachers at both schools (elem and HS) are very good. Although I am disappointed in the district and where they spend their money.

What they should of done was hire another couple of teachers. Combining the 4th and 5th grades to save money was a poor use of funds. My son's kindergarten class this year has over 20, 5 year olds. At that age, that size of class is rediculous. [read more...]

Lyons... great location, lousy community - 8/20/2010
I grew up in Lyons and then a year ago, moved back. It's pretty arrogant for a "one horse town". For as small as it is, navigating it is insane with it's crazy one way streets. Add summer traffic with folks heading up to Estes Park and stupidly planned bike races and you'd think you were in a big city with traffic jams. Speaking of traffic, it's well known as a speed trap area.
The people are Boulder rejects and think they are so refined and culturally superior with their art community. (Most of which have zero talent, but that doesn't stop them.) The music is usually good and the food is fine, but there is little left of what I liked growning up. I used to be proud of coming from Lyons, but that not anymore from what it's become.
