Tim O'Neil, Klickitat County Prosecuting Attorney, will speak at the High Prairie Community Council meeting on Oct. 27 at 7 p.m. The meeting is in the Taylor's Church at 876 Centerville Highway. Mr. O'Neil will speak on easements, stray pets, endangered species, and the county's nuisance ordinance.
Oct. 29 finds the community of Lyle with plans for a full day of fun and merriment starting at 11 a.m. with the Fireman's Chili Cook-off Parade. Other activities will include the 4th annual Cook-off, the Children's Costume Contest and, last but not least, the Fireman's Muster at Lyle Park Place. Bring your lawn chairs and get there early to get a good spot. The Master of Ceremonies for the parade will be at the fire hall. The parade route will begin at 7th and Washington; traveling up to 3rd and then to Lyle Park Place and the other events.
Be sure you purchase your raffle tickets for the beautiful, king size, home made quilt. Tickets can be purchased from any council member or at the event. The lucky winner will be drawn during the festivities and need not be present to win.
Casting a vote is a privilege our forefather's perseverance insured us!

Excerpts from a pamphlet issued by The Lyle Commercial Club (date unknown): "Lyle wheat commands a premium among the millers of the West for its superior quality. Sheep, cattle and hogs wax fat on our hills and are in demand at superior prices. Our long bright sunny days and ever cool nights give us ideal conditions for the successful growing of apples, pears and peaches, grapes, prunes, berries and other kindred fruits."
Only a lack of imagination saves me from immobilizing myself with imaginary fears.
