The continuing saga of Danny Frey by Joy Collins. It is with love for my favorite cowboy that I write this piece.

Just in case there is still even one person in Klickitat County who hasn't heard the story of the cowboy with no horse.......seems this cowboy tied his horses in the barn, saddled them and gave them hay before loading them in the trailer for a trip to gather cows in the mountains. They were still in the barn eating their hay when the cowboy and his wife, my other favorite cowboy Joan, got to their destination, Peterson Prairie in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest. Between bouts of laughing hysterically and calling everyone she knew on the phone, Joan went back for the missing horses and they did get the cows gathered.

Danny, I have carried for years all by myself the banner that is titled "Really Dumb But Humorous Things That No-one, Especially Your True Blue Friends Who Love You No Matter What You Do, Will Ever In Your Lifetime Let You Forget." I now pass that banner on to you. Carry it with pride. Joy

Lyle is still top heavy with crime stats, not something we can be very proud of, but here they are: disorderly conduct, 2; suspicious person, 5; hulk inspection, 1; malicious mischief, 2; alarm activation, 2; theft, 1; citizen assist, 2; 911 hangups, 2; NSF/closed account checks, 3; domestic dispute, 1; forgery/fraud complaint, 1; fire-assist agency, 2; medical-assist agency, 1; animal complaint, 2; trespass complaint, 1; motor vehicle theft, 1.

Don't forget the Nov. 26 Lyle Community Action Council meeting. Washington Department of Transportation will be there as guest speakers and we will have our long discussed election, which we will remind you of again next week.

If you want a meal close to home without having to travel across the river or down the road, check out the eating establishments in Lyle. There are the Lyle Hotel, The Lyle Tap Room, The Lyle Cafe (formerly Country Cafe) and the Deli at the Lyle Merc. Support your local merchants.

Marshall and Lillian Hamm, continued:

Daughter Marcia Marie was born Feb. 19, 1949, and the family moved into their ranch home from cramped quarters in Lyle. All three children attended the entire 12 years in Lyle schools, except Barbara's first year in Boardman. This was in sharp contrast to their father's school experience!

Marshall and Lillian operated their business 30 years, Marshall also running the ranch as a sideline. Both were active in the community and school affairs, participating in 4-H, PTA, Commercial Club, Grange, Church, and Pioneer Day events. Lillian served several years on the School Board and the County Park Board.
