Clean chimney before starting fires
Lyle News for Oct. 11
October 09, 2012
By theWith cold weather upon us and the need to start our heating systems, a friendly reminder is to replace all furnace filters and clean out the chimney or stove pipes. According to the DNR the burn ban has been extended to at least Oct. 15; after which the utmost caution is warranted for any outdoor burning. Until we have a significant rainfall the foliage will still be extremely flammable.

Dallesport is having a meeting on Wednesday, Oct. 24, at 6 p.m. to decide on what to do about its postal service. There are several options open for discussion for the residents to choose from and all venues will be explained. At the meeting, local management will share the results of the survey taken earlier and answer questions. Although the survey results will be known and shared, the postal service will not make a final decision regarding this office until after the public meeting. It will be held at the Dallesport Community Center, 136 6th St., Dallesport.
On Monday, Oct. 22, the Lyle Community Council will be hosting not only a representative of the Mt. Adams Chamber of Commerce (Avery Pickard will provide information of the benefits for Lyle as chamber members) but also our County Commissioner Dave Sauter who will give a county update on various issues such as the 2013 Budget (he's hoping the public will voice their priorities), the status of the radio program, Veteran Affairs and will be open to questions on any subject.
Lyle will miss Betty Tuthill's presence at so many of the events that she was so much a part of. She went to the Lord last week leaving behind large shoes to fill. She was very active in the Lion's Club breakfasts and was an outstanding volunteer for many years. She will be sorely missed.
If you missed the school levy meeting but wish to help in finding solutions for the betterment of Lyle taxpayers as well as Students education, there will be several more meetings and your ideas could be the solution. The school also has a great need for volunteers in many fields, some as simple as listening to a child read or reading to them. A one-time demonstration of your hobby could be an inspiration to launch a student's career. A list of suggestions can be obtained by contacting the school.
