Two rigs of local Sundowners attended Oregon state Samboree in Madras, Ore. the third weekend in June. The last weekend in June, four rigs attended the Washington State Samboree at Moses Lake. A good time was had at both events. Delbert and Jean Brashers' dog Shadow won best dog overall in the dog show at Moses Lake.
There will be a public hearing held by the county commissioners on Aug. 1, 2001, at 7 p.m. This hearing will be at the Lyle Lions Community Center to consider the vacation of Depot Road, County Road #20020. If you have an opinion on closing the crossing to the Lyle Point at the west end of Lyle, now is the time for you to speak up.
The crime stats for Lyle for the month of June 2001 are as follows: motor vehicle accident/non-injury, 2; motor vehicle accident/injury, 1; suspicious person, 1; driving while suspended, 2; suspicious circumstances, 4; warrant arrest, 1; 911 hang-up, 2; domestic dispute, 1; disorderly conduct, 3; theft, 1; trespassing, 3; agency assist, 2; citizens assist, 1; abandoned vehicle, 1; fireworks, 1. THAT'S 26 TIMES OUR COUNTY LAW ENFORCEMENT RESPONDED TO PROBLEMS IN LYLE DURING THE MONTH OF JUNE. FOR A TOWN THE SIZE OF LYLE, THAT IS A DISGRACE! The citizens of Lyle do thank our sheriff's department for their help.
Just a reminder of the contest to name the park. Students, we welcome your ideas. Please submit them to Darla Brashers at 365-4332 or P.O. Box 695. Thanks!
Lyle History continued: Syd and Letha have kept boarders and renters for the past 46 years, mainly teachers and also men who worked on the WPA projects and on the construction of the Bonneville-Grand Coulee powerline.
Syd is now very active in many community projects and services. At present, he is treasurer of the Lyle Pioneer Days and of the Lions Club, which serves many, many projects. Syd is also a member of the Masonic Lodge and BPOE and is a 51 year member of the Columbia Grange #87, with Letha trailing shortly behind.
Letha has also been very active in all community projects and the "Learn to Swim" program still tops the list. Let's make this a super year! Syd and Letha are also charter members of the local "Sundowners" Good Sam Club, a national travel recreational group which supports "Dogs for the Deaf".
Thought for the week: When an elderly person passes on, it is like a library burning down.
