It is so nice to see LYLE on the hill again. A big thank you to the person or persons who climbed the mountain, took PYLE away and left LYLE.
The goal of the 2003 Lyle High School graduating class is to raise $6000 for an alcohol and drug free party on the sternwheeler after graduation. The next fundraiser will be Aug. 17 at Lyle Park Place. There will be a large yard sale and car wash. The class will also be selling snow cones. If you have anything you would like to donate to the sale, you can call any senior. The hours will be from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. They made approximately $200 on the car wash held in The Dalles. Let's give this class all your support.
Seems that every few months Lyle sets a record for 911 calls. We did it again this month with 38 calls -- nothing to be proud of -- 911 hang-ups, 4; civil complaints, 1; suspicious circumstances, 5; citizens assist, 3; animal complaints, 2; driving while suspended, 2; water accident, 1; disorderly conduct, 2; burglary complaint, 2; malicious mischief, 1; theft complaints, 3; fire assist, 2; domestic disputes, 1; driving while intoxicated, 1; warrant arrest, 2; abandoned vehicle complaint, 2; assault complaint, 2; minor in possession, 1; and harassment complaint, 1.
Just a reminder:
The chip site is open for the summer. We have had requests for directions to the chip site so here goes -- the site is located in the southeast corner or Lyle on the river side of the railroad tracks. You can access the site by taking the tunnel underneath the railroad tracks. Turn right past the sewer plant. Please read the sign giving instructions for what can and cannot be left.
Lyles burn ban is in effect.

Lyle History: As published in the Ruralite September 1985.
"Now the house is literally jammed with the trophies and ribbons from Tennessee Walker competitions. One entire wall is covered with ribbons 'and I've got lots more of them put away in boxes,' Eunice says."
"When requested to bring out the usual books with all the pedigrees and honors won, daughter Karen just laughs. 'I gave them a record keeping book once years ago,' she says, 'but it was soon filled up and they never got another one. They just keep all that stuff in their heads'!"
Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.
