The good news is several Lyle residents are on the mend. Jim Titus is recovering from surgery after suffering a mild stroke; Darla Brashers is out and about looking very well after a warning heart attack and surgery. Karon Jasperson was seen at the Lion's breakfast last Saturday. She is walking well with a cane and will soon be back to work following a bad fall several months ago, which required extensive hip surgery.
Many of us remember Robert "Bob" Keyes who spent several years in school here in the 50s. Bob who was the son of Norlee and Frank Keyes formerly of Lyle, was buried at a graveside service on Saturday, Aug. 26, at Lyle-Balch Cemetery. He was a graduate of Lyle High School in 1954. He was a resident of Binghamton, N.Y. at the time of his death. He is survived by his wife, two children, four grandchildren, two brothers and his mother.
Willis and Margie Gholston from Mosier were the recipients of the 30,000th breakfast served by the Lyle Lions Club. This awards them the honor of "2 free breakfasts" each month for an entire year. Any way you look at it, that's a lot of ham and eggs, isn't it"
The pre-Veteran's Day Memorial Service planning is progressing. The military has committed to participate. The Methodist Church has been engaged to host a portion of the service and there may be a luncheon before the services. If you have a loved one who was or is in any branch of the military, and you would like their name included, please contact Roberta Tuthill at (503) 439-1706. The date and time for the service is Oct. 28 at 1 p.m.
Churches in Lyle are United Methodist: 403 Klickitat St. and Lyle Celebration Center: 715 Washington St.
Lyle Transportation (author unknown) quoting from a letter from Mary Joselyn in 1881: "The Balfour estate were acquired at Lyle for right a way and the first train into Goldendale was a work train on April 25, 1903. It was met by a group of Goldendale folks; among them were Judge N. B. Brooks and his son Zola. The first heavy tonnage was a shipment of four cars of wheat from Centerville."
