Lyle History: As published in the Ruralite September 1974.
"I tell you if we had more teachers like her nowadays there wouldn't be all this monkey business going on in schools," said Tim. "When we played hooky she was big and strong enough to give us a good licking -- and she did! I'll never forget when she picked up a checkrein from the livery stable near by, and snapped it around my ankles."
Tim was only able to stay in school thru the 4th grade. He well remembers driving cattle and pigs to market in The Dalles. When he was 17 he started working on the SP&S bridge repair gang. And he's had the reputation ever since of being a hard worker, and a fast one.
At one time he was "powder man" for Claude Knight who was sub-contracted to the PUD when it was putting in lines all over Klickitat County. "When you're putting up poles on solid rock there's no way but to blast with dynamite. But you couldn't beat me with a shovel, either," said Tim.
You'll notice that a turtle only makes progress when it sticks out its neck.
