REMEMBER! This weekend is the 13-Mile Long Yard Sale Extravaganza. There will be yard sales from Appleton, Lyle, High Prairie, Klickitat, Murdock and Dallesport. Get out early to get the best bargains. You can start the morning with cinnamon rolls and coffee at the Lyle Lions Club. Pick up your map, set your shopping strategies and go from there.

At least 11 rigs of the local Sundowners R.V. Club, and several carloads of Lyle residents, attended the yearly auction held at Ione, Ore., this past Saturday. This fun event is eagerly anticipated by all who attend. My parents Marshall and Lillian Hamm started attending this in the early 80s and the rest have followed that lead and it has become a tradition.

Congratulations to you graduates and the goals you have achieved and good luck in your future.

By the looks of all the cars at the Lions Club Friday the L-K-W Boosters Crab Feed must have been a great success. It is a positive thing when the communities support the efforts of their youth athletics and activities.

Churches in Lyle are United Methodist, 403 Klickitat St, and Lyle Celebration Center, 715 Washington St.

History of the Lyle Water Co. from a history submitted by Rex Bullis to the Klickitat Heritage in 1984.

"Minutes of meetings in the early years kept mentioning the need for a better water supply and various ideas were advanced. It was not until sometime after 1931 that they drilled a well, on property formerly owned by Homer James, now owned by Dan Roth. At the same time Dean Gillenwaters was engaged to build a reservoir, the one located near the high school. During those years the names of W. V. Crane, F.M. Cox, Fay McNabb, Charles Gragory, W. J Knight, T. M Thornburgh, and Homer James were some of those that appeared frequently as conducting the affairs of the water company.

In 1953 when the Lyle Water Users Association was incorporated the name was changed to Lyle Water Co., Inc. Homer James, S.M. Johnson and William White were the first three directors of the company. The capital stock was divided into 5500 shares and paid - in stock at the start of the Corporation was $15,000."

Only in America -- Do banks leave both doors open and then chain the pens to the counters.
