The noise and glitter of the Holidays is now going away, and we are settling back into our routines. Have you taken down your Christmas decorations? The house and streets are looking a bit dull. And, with the cold weather we are staying in more. How to avoid Cabin Fever? This issue of the monthly newsletter is devoted to listing a ton of activities (classes, talks, exercise, workshops and more) that are available to SENIORS locally… in January/February… Either in Lyons, Estes Park, or Longmont. You might want to print it up and mark up what you want to follow up on. I’ve signed up for seven things in January. I think I got too excited about what’s being offered, and may cancel a couple! (This LIST will NOT be repeated in future Newsletters)
As a side note…….. The first part of this Newsletter is the usual list of current news / Lyons town news / new health and wellness news / and what happened at the Senior Center over the past month. — If you are a regular reader of the Lyons Recorder, you may find a few ‘general news’ items in this newsletter a repeat of “news tid bits” that I wrote up over the past month in my weekly “news briefs” column to the general public. But, this Newsletter is traditionally sent out to Lyons Seniors as a free email subscription and does not depend on whether they read the newspaper or not.
Wishing you a Happy, Healthy New Year! Kathleen Spring ……… Loving Lyons Senior Group
CHRISTMAS & BIRTHDAY PARTY, December 2022
Several Lyons seniors gathered at the Senior Center to celebrate the Holidays at the end of December. They had a lovely meal, and followed it by singing Happy Birthday to Carolyn Dollar, and signing a card for Annie Mannering, who couldn’t make it.
I also brought several Christmas cards for them to sign that went out to seniors who were mostly home-bound or who had regrettably moved out of Lyons into ‘homes’ in Longmont. We ate a yummy Red Velvet cake, and some frosted cookies. Our monthly craft was making our own tree ornament by inserted different kinds of decorations into clear plastic bulbs. Then we cheered each other on to have a great Christmas or Holiday.
Thanks to Lisa Ramsey for all her activity planner during 2022, courtesy of the Town of Lyons (most of which were funded by LCF). We also gave kitchen manager Helen Vanderwerken and her volunteers “Christmas Thank You” cards.
This year’s December field trip was to see the Spielberg semi-autobiographic movie “The Flabelman’s.” The many people who went filled the small private theater room, with its cushy seats, and snacked on concession stand goodies.
News You Can Use
FIRE in DOWNTOWN LYONS: On Monday, December 19th, a fire started in the corner strip of stores located at Main Street and Fourth Avenue. The fire was later designated as “unintentional” and it started in the basement. The stores located there were: Rabbit Brush Gallery (the old Red Canyon Art location) Liz Durfee, owner — Lovely by Nature (dog grooming shop, on 4th), Janae Swigg, owner — HJB Designs (leather) by Bellwether, Holly Beck, owner —the basement art gallery 3C’s Art Gallery, Christie Snelson, Connie Luebbert, and Chelsea Grace, owners. And businesses: Business Owner Megan Walsh, Farmers Insurance. Business Owner Chelsea A. Victor, Attorney & Counselor at Law. Business Owner Julie Hamilton, Scope Accounting.
Some other downtown businesses reported a power loss due to the fire and closed for the day. Chelsea Grace and Crystal Violet were affected by the smoke, and are alright for now.
To read the “personal statements” of each person, I have gathered them into one article: ARTICLE === LEAF has set up an account to help the victims: DONATE There have also been some pop-up art sales, and benefits run in town for them.
PROPERTY TAX DEFERRAL: Colorado’s Property Tax Deferral Program is continuing to help older adults, 65 and older, afford to live in their homes by deferring the payment of their property taxes. As of Jan. 1, 2023, homeowners can visit TAX LINK to learn more about the Property Tax Deferral Program and check their eligibility. In addition, older adults can contact the State of Colorado Treasurer’s office for information on how to apply.
Community Garden Update==PLANT YOUR OWN GARDEN ‘advisor’ job == from Bob Brakenridge: Well, not much of an update really! Instead, a call out to see if there are one or more Community Garden. Ecology Advisory Board (EAB) and Town of Lyons are ready to support, and there is a possible location for the garden by the Botanical Gardens. EAB is tasked in an advisory role on this. Our town administrator has signaled an intention to move forward.
But a community member is also needed; who would not only use a plot, but help the start up overall, and work with both EAB and staff. If interested, message me, and/or post here; I will take names to the EAB meeting tomorrow night.
Town staff would register new garden plot owners and take in a nominal fee. You could serve as another point of contact, and put your stamp on the plans as well. There is lots of history from the prior, pre-flood garden to help inform us all going forward. Sing out if interested and willing! Thanks, Bob == Robert.Brakenridge@colorado.edu — volunteers who are interested and could take on a leadership role in a new Lyons, CONTACT ME.
CENTURY LINK: If you have CL for your phone provider, you need to look at this month’s bill as there are multiple (small) increases in price. Also, they will start to charge $1/month if you want a paper copy sent to your home.
HOME HEATING BILL: Utility bills are going up! Remember that Colorado has a program that helps low-income people partially pay for their home heating bill. Go to LEAP for the application. Seniors can also ask the Boulder County Resource Specialist for help in getting the form or filling it out. Colorado Low-income Energy Assistance Program .
Winter WEATHER Update! Last year it was miserable, and we only saw 5” of snow so far. This year we have 25.2” which is higher than the average of 20.0”. In October we just got a trace. In November 10.9”, and in December 13.0”. Steamboat has got 202” so far – yes, you read that right! (Vail is next with 153”) Colorado is no longer in a high drought; and the reservoirs are all around 100% capacity already! (Thanks to Channel 7 meteorologist Mike Nelson for the stats )
SPREADING THE CHRISTMAS LOVE: LEAF’s LYONS GIVING TREE PROJECT delivered 116 gifts to 36 families – many of them seniors who often no longer get gifts at Christmas. Between volunteers and gift givers, over 90 people (YOU) shared the giving spirit with neighbors. All Food Banks are short on food due to increased number of patrons, and high prices of product. Give at: www.LeafLyons.org
LAVERN JOHNSON: One of the Lyons Redstone Museum’s biggest fundraisers of the year is their Christmas Bazaar booth (now called Artisan Market). She has been doing it for about 40 years. I did an article in the Lyons Recorder the last week of 2022, to remember our dear friend and advocate who passed away in May 2022. I interviewed four people who worked with her in and around the booth, and recalled some good stories. Some people will remember that the other big fundraiser was the summer Craft Fair and Flea Market in Sandstone Park, and across Railroad Avenue, before the Walt Self building was constructed. Geneva Sabados was a member of Lyons senior community, and she and her family had to move out of town after the flood. They had the house by the rive that always had the most Christmas lights. For more stories, see the ARTICLE.
OLD STONE CHURCH: I posted a picture of the booklet that the museum carries on the Old Stone Church on the Facebook “Lyons Historical Artifacts” page, and every few weeks someone “finds” it and posts “I was married there”. How lovely! Congratulations!
==The most recent post was by Sandi Brueback Kaiser posted “I was married in this church 50+ years ago”.
== Diane Current – I got married there, as did both my sisters, and my Mom and Dad!!!
==Denise Parker: married there 30 years ago!
==Georgina Ohline Minto =40 years ago!
Barbara Walters, Longtime TV news anchor and host, dead at 93. 12/30/22 == This is a woman I greatly admired; and many others did too, as there were multiple “specials” on her life’s achievements this past week === Barbara Walters shattered the glass ceiling and became a dominant force in an industry once dominated by men. She was on NBC “today,” and ABC 20/20, and ABC “evening news”–She was named the shows’ first female co-host/co-anchor… == I loved and missed her intimate interviews with Hollywood stars and world leaders; and interviews of celebrities on an annual pre-Oscars special.
Bessie Laurena Hendricks, of Lake City, died December 6, at the Shady Oaks Care Center, Iowa. Hendricks celebrated her 115th birthday at the home. She is believed to have been the oldest person in the US.
FLU – hospital ICU beds are 70 to 80% full across the nation. NOTE: Take anti-viral drugs quickly and take all of them, even if you start to feel better. The prescription reduces the duration and severity of the flu. There have been some outbreaks in long term care and correction facilities; so encourage your friends and relatives in “enclosed housing” to get their flu shot. It’s not too late.
COVID NEWS: The majority of recent deaths due to COVID have been among seniors. Only 37% are vaccinated. Get your free vaccine now! ==== The latest strong strain out this month has been causing 40% of the cases. ==== Colorado shut down the last of its “COVID TESTING” sites January 8th. Now you must rely on home tests, or your doctor’s office. ==== NEW SHIPMENTS of COVID TESTS FREE: The federal government is once again offering 4 free boxes of COVID home tests for each household. Thanks President Biden for doing this. www.COVID.gov ====EXPIRED TESTS? Stop! Before you throw out old test kits, check this FDA website to see if they are still good.===== US NURSING HOMES vaccination numbers have gone up from 17% in November to 47% January 2, 2023 (based on 15,000 certified facilities). CO has one of the best rates in the country.
ALZHEIMER’S/Dementia: Colorado says that they are working on a 5-year state plan to help with this. Those 65 and over in CO in 2020 were 76,000 and expect in 2025 will be 92,000.
===APPROVED! ===In DECEMBER, it was announced that early studies of effect on Alzheimer’s Disease by Lecanemab was promising. It will help with those with early symptoms to slow down the progress, by reducing brain amyloid levels and was associated with less decline. On January 6, 2023, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved lecanemab for patients in the **earliest stages of the mind-wasting disease.** Specifically, it aims to slow advance of the neurodegenerative disease by removing sticky clumps of the toxic protein beta amyloid from the brain. Nearly all previous experimental drugs using the same approach had failed. The manufacturer Eisai said the drug would launch at an annual price of $26,500. Initial patient access will be limited by a number of factors including reimbursement decisions from Medicare, the U.S. government insurance program for Americans aged 65 and older who represent some 90% of individuals likely to be eligible for Leqembi. Those who will be eligible are in the early stages of Alzheimer’s, which is about 2 million of the 6 million people with the disease. Some scientists, though, say that the drug’s benefit is modest and there are strong side effects to take into consideration. (Back in June 2021, the FDA granted donanemab Breakthrough Therapy designation, to speed development and review. And also Aducanumab was approved but Medicare only paid for those who were in clinical studies.)
TIPS FOR A HEALTHY BRAIN: ….. Looking for tips on how to protect your cognitive health? Here are several ideas borne from research supported by the Alzheimer’s Association:
- Cut back on “ultra-processed” foods – Examples include sodas, breakfast cereals, white bread, potato chips, and frozen foods, such as lasagna, pizza, ice cream, hamburgers and fries.
- Get flu vaccination
- Manage your blood pressure
- Be social – That’s right. Add “hang out with friends” and “have fun”
AFFORDABLE HOUSING IN LYONS COMING: An independent developer has presented a plan to the Town of Lyons to build nine units on two lots on Evans Street. It will replace the current buildings which housed as many units, and was reportedly run down, and had a landlord who didn’t respect the tenants. This will not cost the town millions, but will rest on the owner! This is a long-awaited answer to our Affordable Housing problem, and the Town Board of Trustees enthusiastically and approving the many steps it takes to get permission to build. See the Lyons Recorder ARTICLE to see images of how it will look, and detailed notes from the presentation.
BUSINESSES: two new businesses ==a drive thru coffee shop next to U-Pump-It, now open. == A pet store in the Shoppette with birds and lizards, and food for all kinds of pets to open in February.== And nine businesses have changes, major new products, or new locations.

==Dale Katechis and Oskar Blues celebrated 25 years in business in 2022 (see ARTICLE) == SpiritHound Distillers celebrated 10 years in business, and threw a 1920s party, with people wearing appropriate costumes! == CONGRATS to all!
CONSTRUCTION: (1) Railroad Avenue in front of the fire station is now open and ONE WAY!! (2) The Hwy 7 bridge renovation is complete. (3) Hwy 36 from Lyons to Estes Park is said to be complete, and we haven’t seen “stop” signs over the Holidays.

Walt Self SENIOR CENTER: The new vinyl flooring, and lunch chairs and tables, are now done, as of December.
