The residents of the foothill town of Lyons, hit hard by Colorado flooding, have another misery piled on their already destroyed and damaged homes, businesses and roads: the potentially deadly E. coli bacteria has been found in the town's water system. “We don't want you using any of the water,” Lyons' town administrator, Victoria Simonsen, said during a town hall meeting, which was broadcast online because the town is all but evacuated. There's no timeline for when the water and sewer systems will be restored, Simonsen said.

Newport Beach home builder William Lyon Homes has a history almost as interesting as its founder and namesake. William Lyon flew combat missions in the Korean War, commanded the Air Force Reserve and was chief executive and chairman of AirCal in the 1980s before selling the regional airline to American Airlines. Known as "the General," Lyon was a key player in the post-war Southern California housing boom. He got his start in home building in 1954 with Luxury Homes, a company he launched to build homes for military veterans.

Re "Maywood employs police officers with a history of trouble," April 1 Acting Maywood Police Chief Richard Lyons said: "It's OK to give a person a second chance if you learn from your mistake." Does Lyons think he is running an elementary school, where students get warnings before recess privileges are revoked? There is nothing wrong with second, even third, chances, but the Maywood Police Department is an inappropriate place for second chances. Men and women who are allowed to carry leather-encased, lead-filled hand weapons should not be given second chances.

Sobbing and pleading for mercy, the Rev. Henry Lyons was sentenced to 5 1/2 years in prison Wednesday for swindling more than $4 million while president of one of the nation's largest and most influential black denominations. The 57-year-old minister was also ordered to repay almost $2.5 million. "I cannot shake the feeling that I have let so many people down," Lyons told Circuit Judge Susan Schaeffer. "I've asked God every single night and day to forgive me." Lyons was convicted Feb.

A court will soon referee a Woodland Hills neighborhood dispute that is said to have started with a poisoned dog and led to a poison pen. A physician has filed a libel suit against a woman who lives across the street, alleging that she has falsely accused him of killing her dog. He claims the accusation was made in letters she circulated along their block. The case, scheduled for a hearing Feb. 20, pits Dr. Louis S.

Re "To Fight Terror, Dispatch a Lifesaving Hospital Ship," Commentary, Jan. 29: What a gesture of goodwill it would be if the Bush administration deployed a hospital ship off Pakistan, as suggested by James Lyons Jr. The international community would witness a side to America other than the continuing tirades of a swaggering, bellicose American president pressuring other nations to join him in a preemptive attack on Iraq. Lyons' reference to Project Hope brought back a flood of memories of the welcome our family received in the 1970s in Trujillo, Peru, when we accompanied my husband during his sabbatical year with that humanitarian program there.

Santa Claus is not very busy in this southeastern Georgia community that bears his name--at least, not as busy as the town's 275 residents would like him to be. Back in the 1940s, when this Toombs County community incorporated and gave the local streets names like Reindeer Drive and Candy Cane Lane, there were high hopes that Santa Claus would become a booming tourist attraction. Its location along U.S. 1, then a main route to Florida, seemed to guarantee success.

Will they or won't they? That's the question that supporters of Sen. Pete Wilson for governor are asking. Will Pete and Gayle Wilson sing at William and Willa Dean Lyon's Saturday night the way they sang at Jim and Nancy Baldwin's last October? There's no mention of it on the party invitations, fancy little numbers that ask guests to come to Coto de Caza for "The Orange County Premiere Dinner Honoring Our Next Governor of California." But there was no mention of it on the invitations to the Baldwin bash in Emerald Bay either.

Maurice Lyons, the chairman of the Morongo Band of Mission Indians during the construction of a sprawling casino-resort that was a $250-million gamble to pursue more of the self-sufficiency for the tribe he'd long advocated, died Wednesday. He was 63. Lyons died at his home on the Morongo Reservation, said Michael Fisher, a tribal spokesman. The cause of death was not disclosed. Lyons was elected tribal chairman in 2001 and stepped down in 2006, citing an illness that forced him to reduce his responsibilities.

ST. LOUIS -- The Dodgers do not plan to bring Steve Lyons and Eric Collins back to their broadcast team next year. Lyons had worked on the Dodgers' television broadcasts for nine years, most recently as an analyst on road games and on pregame and postgame shows. Collins, with the Dodgers for five years, had served as the play-by-play voice on televised games outside California and Arizona -- that is, the games to which Vin Scully did not travel. Lyons, a former major leaguer, announced news of his dismissal on Saturday via Twitter.

LONGMONT, Colo. - David and Lisa Sangelo loved the view from the deck of their home perched on a hillside: the sweetly churning St. Vrain River, green, rolling hillsides, rustic homes, a lightly traveled highway connecting them to civilization. But this week their bucolic landscape began to turn on them. At 2 a.m. Thursday, sirens wailed and a booming voice came over emergency system speakers that are scattered throughout the valley. “Impending flood,” it warned. “Seek higher ground immediately.” The phone rang with a robo-call telling residents to seek safety.

BOULDER, Colo. - Weather-weary Coloradans faced another day of nature-driven mayhem Thursday as pelting rain and flash flooding wreaked havoc statewide, washing out roads, closing businesses, isolating mountain towns and causing at least three deaths. The fourth straight day of rain dumped more than 7 inches within hours Thursday morning, turning a state normally known for difficult winters into a late-summer nightmare. Swollen rivers, submerged cars and mudslides stranded residents on rooftops.

One of my favorite Los Angeles independent presses is BüK - an imprint built around the elegant idea of the pamphlet. Beginning in 2005, BüK co-founders Lisa Lyons (a former Lannan Foundation and Getty Trust curator) and Gary Kornblau (former publisher of the iconic 1990s magazine Art issues) have issued small books individually and in curated sets of six, offering a reading experience that is diverse, intelligent and unpredictable, while also being digestible in a single sitting.

When David St. John makes his annual pilgrimage to Moonstone Beach, he looks at the crashing tide and recalls his incarnations from years past. Sometimes, he envisions the child who splashed with wonder in the tide pools, or the teenager who piled in the car with friends for surfing trips. Other times, he sees the middle-aged poet who used the waves as a recurring backdrop. At different phases of his life, the ocean has signified adventure, mortality or hard-earned wisdom; he's sure that other epiphanies will come.

Florida Gulf Coast is a hot story and, gee, that old La Salle played great, but all of that may not matter. Forget Louisville, Indiana, Duke and Syracuse and save your talk about difference-maker guards Peyton Siva of Louisville, Miami's Shane Larkin, Ohio State's Aaron Craft and Michigan's Trey Burke leading their schools to this year's national title. The truth is, Arizona will win this year's NCAA title if senior guard Mark Lyons plays the way he played last weekend in Salt Lake City.
