Our local theatrical group, "The Pretenders" are at it again! Rehearsals have started for a May performance. The program format will be a little different this time with three separate one-act plays, and perhaps desserts in place of dinners. The final decisions are forthcoming. So be prepared to enjoy another evening of homegrown quality entertainment soon!
Lyle Balch Cemetery Clean up will be held Saturday, May 17, starting at 8:30 a.m. A potluck lunch and annual business meeting will follow at the Columbia Grange Hall. Speaking of the Cemetery, it would be very much appreciated, that when bird watching or flower photographing, that the gates to the cemetery be closed upon leaving. Volunteers, manage this cemetery. They won't always know that the gates are left wide open for cows and wild life to pass thru. Out of respect, for the residents buried therein, PLEASE CLOSE THE GATES!
Registration forms are in the mail for the All Lyle School Reunion that will take place the first weekend of August 2003. If you haven't received yours, or know of someone else who hasn't, please contact PO Box 191 with a current address.
Graduation Plus One: Saturday, May 3, at the Dallesport Community Center from 9 a. m. to 3 p.m. the class of 2003 will hold its yard sale. Clean out your closets and garages and give these kids a helping hand. If you have items to donate please call Cathy Single at 767-1426 or Susan Billette at 365-2444. The class will hold a bottle and can drive at the gazebo by the Ted Walker Memorial Swimming Pool in The Dalles. There are also bins for these items in the school bus yard in Lyle. The date and hours coincide with the yard sale. If you need someone to pick up your bottles or cans call Margie Bodolay at 365-3505 or Colleen Webster at 365-3566.

Lyle Pioneer History continued, as recounted by Jesse A Jewell.
Lyle history as published in The Enterprise, July 6, 1967: "Something similar went on when they built the railroad up through Klickitat to Goldendale. When they got as far old Chief Skukum Wallehe's place just beyond Pit. He wanted a contract. They dickered and the more they dickered the more rocks he rolled and he continued to roll rocks down on the workmen until they signed an agreement allowing him to ride to Goldendale whenever he took a good notion to. Every day for a long time he would go out, flag the train down and take himself a ride to Goldendale and back. They tried to discourage him at times but he didn't discourage easy. This was the first railroad in Klickitat County built in 1902. The mainline wasn't built until 1908."
If you must choose between two evils, pick the one you've never tried before.
