There's nothing worse than writing a fish story and finding out that you had the facts wrong. It was Danny Frey that caught the whopper, not Danny Chase. Anyone that caught a fish that big really should get the credit for the catch. Sorry Danny, does that mean that you are not going to share?
At the end of June, five rigs from the local Sundowners' group went to Moses Lake to the Washington State Samboree. We would like to ask if any of the Sundowners' that no longer attend Samborees, etc., might have some of the 8 inch light green embroidered patches with the trailer and pickup on them that they used on their vests. Call Eileen Brashers if you do.
The July outing was at Elk Meadows with nine rigs attending and the August trip will be to the Lakeside Resort at Pine Hollow. A change has been made due to the hot weather and the Saturday potlucks will be held around 5:30 p.m.
It was good to see Pamela Lyle-Walton (a direct descendent of Lyle's founding family) visiting our area for the weekend. She was a guest at the Lyle Hotel for a couple of nights and with Barbara one night.
Just a reminder:
The chip site is open for the summer. Dispose of your brush and limbs at this site, recycle all that you can and let's see if we can do away with burn barrels.
Lyle's burn ban is in effect.

Lyle History: As published in the Ruralite September 1985.
"After all those years of railroad work, Jim was ready in 1964 for some spare-time fun, challenge and hard work of training a Tennessee Walker. Flash's Honey Rose seemed always to be in the money wherever she was shown, which included all the small and big shows on the West Coast. Even in the Cow Palace in San Francisco, the biggest show of all, she placed 4th, 5th, and 7th."
'By 1970 the Crosbys has bought three more Walkers, and Jim was really into the extensive and strenuous program that made them winners. 'Tennessee Walkers have to be in top physical condition, for competition is hard work and takes lots of stamina. They have to be absolutely perfect in performing three complicated steps: the Flat Walk, the Running Walk and the Rocking Chair Canter'."
There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.
