The community extends its sympathy to the families of Joseph Pinell. He was laid to rest on Saturday at Balch Cemetery. The community also lost one of its "Centurions" this week. Karmen Kingery passed away on Friday, Feb. 8, at the foster home where she had resided for the past four years. Karmen was 102 on her birthday in January.

The LCAC urges your attendance at the next meeting on Feb. 24. At this meeting the council will be presenting the final Disaster Plan, and distributing Emergency Plan Information. Chris Mace, county sheriff, will be in attendance to answer any questions on this plan. Mary Gumm from "Sprint" will update the community on the fiber optic cable that has been installed, and what benefits it will bring to the citizens of Lyle. Also on the agenda will be Marty Hudson, of the County Noxious Weed Control Dept., to update us on how to control the noxious weeds on private property and in the community. This will be a very informative evening. Questions??? This is your opportunity to ask them. Plan to attend and let your voice be heard!

Just a reminder:

Lyle History: As published in the Enterprise, July 6, 1967.

Lyle Pioneer History continued, as recounted by Jesse A Jewell: "About 1900 a convict camp was established up near where the Thunderbird is now, over and back of the tunnels east of town. That was before there was any road up the river toward Dallesport. The renown and respected builder of the northwest that built railroads, is supposed to have fostered the idea of building a road up the river. (Samuel Hill wanted very much to have a road to Maryhill from Lyle because of his castle and Stonehenge which is a replica of a ruined structure of giant stones on Salisbury Plain in S. W. England; of great antiquity: perhaps once a temple of the sun. The castle has now been turned into a museum)."

Old age is when former classmates are so gray and wrinkled, and bald they don't recognize you.
