The Lyle Lions Club will be holding an extra breakfast this month with the proceeds going to aid the Katrina victims. So, mark your calendar for Saturday, Sept. 17, and support this endeavor. They will add biscuits and gravy to the regular breakfast menu for this event.
Sept. 26 is the date of the next Community Council meeting. The "Meth" awareness night is set for Sept. 28. The Fireman's Chili Cook Off is scheduled for Oct. 29. You can pick up your parade entry form at The Merc, the restaurant, or at the coffee shop. Children you need to be thinking about your Halloween Costume so you can enter the annual contest.
Council elections for several positions will be held at the November meeting.

Why Lyle? Because...(second 5 of 10)
1. Our rainfall is 27 inches annually; this is all that could be desired to satisfy the wants of our crops.
2. We have been favored by nature with an excellent soil. It is generally deep, either a volcanic ash or a red shot on the surface, with a red clay subsoil. This subsoil is full of iron and other minerals, thus assuring us beautiful color on our fruit, wonderful lasting qualities, and is a natural reservoir for the retention of moisture, making irrigation an absurdity.
3. Our community has escaped the speculator; it has not been boomed and prices are still within the reach of all.
4. Our crops serve to keep the balance on the right side of the ledger, hence crop failure is unknown.
5. We need you to help develop this land of ours and to share in the opportunities which are before us.
An old Farmers advice: "Your fences need to be horse-high, pig-tight, and bull-strong."
