Boy, how the wind must have howled or the cows must have roamed! Instead of Lyle on the hill, we have Pyle on the hill. We hope there are enough energetic students around the next few weeks to hike up to the sign and put Lyle back on the hill. Thank you in advance. We appreciate your help.

The May stats for Lyle are as follows: disorderly conduct, 4; theft, 2; suspicious circumstances, 5; malicious mischief, 4; civil complaints, 2; citizens assist, 2; driving while intoxicated, 1; animal complaints, 2; trespassing complaints, 2; motor vehicle accident/injury, 1; and forgery/fraud complaint, 1. Well, let's see, May had 31 days and there were 26 calls from Lyle. Now that is something to be really proud of!! NOT!! And you can't even lay any of these calls on 911 hang-ups. These are all legitimate calls.

Congratulations, John and Shin for the fun day of music at the Merc. We both were out of town but the rumors are that it was a huge success. Let us know in advance next year so that we can help get the word out.

Lots of construction is going on in Lyle. It's wonderful to see the homeowners and businesses putting their faith in the community.

The usual large contingency from Lyle was seen at the Ione Auction last weekend. There were even several new Lylites there. If you haven't made this auction before, you are missing a fun day and a wonderful meal. Put it on your calendar for next year. It is always on the first Saturday in June. You might also make note that Pine Grove Fire Department has its auction on the first Saturday in March.

Just a reminder: the chip site is open for Spring. 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 goes into effect June 10.

June's Lyle Community Action Council meeting is Monday, June 24.

"Town Slogan" Contest for Lyle entry deadline is October 1.

Lyle history: As published in the Ruralite September 1974.

"Soon he'll be transplanting the tomato plants he raised from a very special seed which the catalog promises will produce 'big, juicy slicers'."

"Tim has planted watermelons, too, and gives fair warning that if anyone tries to make off with those prizes the long -- deserted town-site of "old Lyle" could once again ring out with a shotgun blast!"

"A man to reckon with - Tim Wall."

Standing in the middle of the road is dangerous. You will get knocked down by the traffic from both ways.
