The elections are over and we would like to thank all who turned out in person to vote, or turned in their (for the most part unrequested) absentee ballots. A day that could have been fraught with problems went very smoothly at least in Lyle. The Lyle School levy passed and that is much appreciated by the school district. Thank you all!
The Pretenders opened their play for the first weekend this last Friday to a packed house and from what we've been told it was a success. The production is sold out for all performances. The Cougar Den is catering dinner for the event each evening.
With the time change it is darker so much earlier and we urge you all to drive with caution. Children at play or walking near roadways may not be watching for cars.
The Nov. 28 council meeting will see Community Council elections. Open positions are: 2, 3, and 4. Incumbents Joy Collins and Barbara Sexton have declared their intent to run again. Fill-in council member Mike Sayler has declared his intent to run for position #2. On the agenda will be the Christmas Light Contest and a new Christmas tree for the park. The council is open to hearing from any group wishing to apply for the EDA Grants. The EDA needs to have draft copies of requested grants by Dec. 19. The meeting to hear the proposals will be held Jan. 12, 2006.
Churches in Lyle are United Methodist, 403 Klickitat St, and Lyle Celebration Center, 715 Washington St.
Excerpts from a pamphlet issued by The Lyle Commercial Club (date unknown). "We, who live here at Lyle, and know of the many opportunities offered to the energetic and ambitious home seeker, invite you to join us in the up building of our community. You will find us ready with a helping hand to co-operate with you and help you solve your problems and gain independence at Lyle, 'Where Rain and Sunshine Meet'."
A good scapegoat is nearly as welcome as a solution to the problem.
