Welcome to the new Lyons Recorder. We are a group of about a dozen volunteers in the greater Lyons community who believe that Lyons needs to have a weekly voice. Since the print version of the Recorder went out of business this past summer 2019, we have been working to develop an online presence.
Throughout the country, community newspapers have been bought up by hedge funds that stripped them of resources and fired journalists. Others, facing declining revenues and soaring costs, have folded. The new Lyons Recorder will be bringing you news, opinions, and features to reflect the community’s interests.
We hope to bring you an online product that will inform, entertain, and connect the community. We welcome your feedback, as well as your talents. If you would like to join us as a writer, graphic designer, artist, or poet, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
