Park plaudits

Editor: I am writing to commend Dana Blackburn and what she does for the Lisbon pool. She does an amazing job with what little she has to work with. If it wasn’t for her and her volunteers, the splash pad would have never happened. I have seen Dana put so much hard work and effort into ...

Time lapses

Editor: Do we want Lisbon to be a one of a kind jewel, or deny its potential and become a Generica USA? Why do property values rise in historical districts where there is enforced historical protection? Have you ever vacationed and found fast food in historical buildings? Restoration of the ...
