The proceeds from the monthly breakfast at the Lyle Lion's Club will be donated to help those in New York with relief efforts. The breakfast is on Oct. 6, 2001, at 7 to 10:30 a.m.
This month will feature ham and eggs, omelettes, biscuits and gravy and all you can eat pancakes. See you on Oct. 6.
Our thoughts and prayers of course are with everyone touched by the events of this past week. We urge each of you to support your government with letters, email and most of all with prayers. Make sure you let everyone in your own personal life know you love them. We all need those hugs and reassurances.
We encourage you to attend the Lyle Community Action Council meeting the 4th Monday of each month, held at the Lyle Lions Community Center at 7 p.m. We are encouraging local businesses, organizations and families to come on September 24 and give the council their ideas for what they hope to see in the future of this community. What do you want the council to do for you? Dana Peck and Tom Seifert will be at this meeting to explain the grant process. Grant proposals have to be presented to the council by the Oct. 29 meeting. They will be reviewed by the council and given priority for presentation to the Economic Development Board in November for 2002 grant projects.
At the November council meeting there will be three positions that are up for re-election. Glenda Lovejoy who is now our Secretary/Treasurer -- Position #2, Darla Brashers -- Position #1, and by the rules in the bylaws, newly appointed council member Sandy Doolin will have to run for election -- Position #7. We welcome anyone else who might wish to run to come forward.
We also hope you will help keep the new Lyle Park Place clean and attractive and the litter picked up. Let's take PRIDE in this wonderful new park.

Pioneer Days Newspaper Memorial Weekend 1984
"Trucking had come of age in the 30s and early 40s. Diesel motors, dual rear ends, multi-gear transmissions and better brakes combined with new roads to open the door to a giant industry. The Satus Pass road from Goldendale to Toppenish was open in the 30s, eliminating the need to go through Bickleton and Mabton to reach the Yakima Valley. A new road was opened between Lyle and Dallesport, completing the North Bank Highway to Maryhill. A section from Hood River to Cooks eliminated the trip to Underwood Heights. After the war the freeway on the Oregon shore was opened."
"In those days around 30 brands of sheep were wintered in Klickitat County with summer range in the mountains to the north and west. McNeil & Brashers trucks would haul fat lambs from the mountains to collecting points in Lyle, Goldendale and Toppenish where they would be loaded for rail shipment east. Art Bohosky's sheep sheds at Lyle fattened lambs through the winter. The sheds had a capacity of 10,000. As each bunch was fattened, Bohosky would add more, feeding Klickitat grain. He employed several men all winter."
I've learned "That I can always pray for someone when I don't have the strength to help him in some other way."
