The Community Action Council is requesting information from the citizens of Lyle. To finalize the community disaster plan, we need to know of people with special needs (wheel chairs, oxygen etc); residents who could help others with evacuation; and names of those who might have forms of communication like VHF or short wave radios. Please contact Peyt Turner at 365-2333 with this information. The plan will be finalized with the county in November 2002.
Were you were one of the many who enjoyed the Lions Club breakfast last Saturday? Do you remember that that breakfast was started many years ago to fund the building of the Community Center? With the funds raised by the Lions Club and help from the first grant for the EDA Landfill dollars the entire county has benefited from this beautiful facility. This an example of one of the many ways the taxpayers have shared the benefits of the landfill.

Lyle History: As published in the Enterprise, July 6, 1967
Lyle Pioneer History continued, as recounted by Jesse A Jewell: "It wasn't long then before the best and easiest to go to, was surveyed; then the government would bet 160 acres of land that a man would starve to death before proving it up. It wasn't easy, some did and some didn't. A great many that came west were single men seeking their fortunes. When they had proved up on their quarter section, a lot of the men sent back east for their sweethearts, and dear ones left behind until everything was more suitable for the homemakers. Our West really began to settle up then."
Of all the things you wear your expression is the most important.
