Local Good Sam members assisted at state meeting in Enumclaw in October: The Dave Howards, the Delbert Brashers and the Jim Brashers helped with parking (a real experience) and with registration and greeting. On costume night they represented Good Witch, Bad Witch, The Tin Man, Cowardly Lion, and "Dorothy." Do you suppose they followed the yellow brick road and talked to the Wizard of Oz?
The Pretenders will present "Love, Sex, and the IRS" Nov. 22 and 23 at the Lyle Grange Hall. Tickets are going fast to this dinner theatre production. A must see -- very funny! Rated "R" due to adult situations.
These old gals would like to thank the community for doing their patriotic duty by casting their votes on Election Day. The turnout was wonderful, made the day go fast for the workers, and supported the candidates running for office. Once again, Lyle did them proud by the large turnout. Remember, if you didn't vote, you lost your right to complain about your government.
Just a Reminder:
LCAC election of three board positions will be held at the Nov. 25 meeting. Barbara Sexton and Joy Collins are up for re-election and the vacant position has two candidates: Pam Essley and Mildred Lykens.

Lyle History: As published in the Enterprise, July 6, 1967
Lyle Pioneer History continued, as recounted by Jesse A. Jewell: "James Lyle was proclaimed Post Master in June, 1876. He served for eight years in the first post office east of the Cascades (on the north side of the river)."
"One of the very early settlers in Lyle or the immediate district was John and Bill Splawn's grandfather -- Francis Splawn. He was here before Klickitat Landing even knew it was going to have its name changed - some 105 years ago."
"Hard winter seen."
"Mrs. Lyle's brother, Ben Snipes, was the great cattle baron in the early days of the Northwest. At one time he was reported to have owned in the neighborhood of 50,000 head of cattle, scattered from Oregon to the Canadian border."
Some people remind us of French bread -- one long loaf.
